Understanding Crystal Grids: What Exactly Are They?

As we enter this new year, so many of us start with such grand intentions or resolutions. It should be noted that there is a distinct difference between setting intentions and making resolutions. Resolutions are goals - they typically have a clear external outcome (i.e. lose 15 pounds) and don’t exactly set us up with a clear path for obtaining. Intentions are different. By setting intentions, you are setting a path. You are preparing yourself, spiritually and mentally, and opening yourself up to the possibility of what can be. Your mind is directed.

For so many of us, it can be hard to stick to these lofty ideas throughout the year. That’s why I love working with crystal grids. I can take time to formulate my intention, create a grid, and surrender to the flow knowing I am energetically supported.

Crystal grids work by amplifying your intentions. They form a network of crystal energies that is greater than the sum of individual crystal energies to create a more potent field for fertilizing your intentions. This is done by carefully selecting the crystals to be used based on your desired intention and arranging them in a particular symmetrical manner based on the principles of sacred geometry. 

Sacred Geometry is the fact that several basic shapes and patterns in life repeat in an endless combination of circles, squares and triangles to create 3-D forms. Since ancient times, spiritual teachers and leaders have put meaning to these shapes, emphasizing their place as our center and our foundation. Crystals are one of the representations of those 3-D forms. That is why you can boost your intentions when you utilize crystal grids in your practice. The vibrations emitted by crystal grids are stronger, more powerful, more connected with the universe. Sacred geometry literally is the language of our universe. It is our very being. Our very basis.

Some of our favorite forms in sacred geometry are the seed of life and flower of life. See the shapes and learn more about these beautiful crystal grid bases here:

You can still form beautiful groupings of crystals that are not set to sacred geometry but these would be called arrays and not grids. Arrays can also create powerful energy fields and can serve a purpose. Let your intuition be your guide during this process. If something feels right to you, go with it. There really is no right or wrong here. Creating a crystal grid, or even an array, is an intimate and personal thing unique to you.
