Micro - Macro: Crystal grids as a form of marquette.

​Crystal grid layouts offer a sculptural format that could enhance the power of my final sculptural works.
Crystal grids are considered by those who work them as an incredibly powerful and beautiful way to manifest their dreams, goals and intentions. They are also powerful healing tools. The power of a crystal grid comes from the combined energies of the crystals used, how they are laid out and the intentions set.
In essence, a crystal grid is a special arrangement of crystals and stones, used with intention, to manifest a desired result.

Step-by-step Guide to Creating a Crystal Grid

  1. The first step is deciding what your intentions are for the grid. You may like to write this down on a piece of paper and place it under the central stone in your grid. Try to be specific about what you would like and as mentioned before, try to stick with a need, rather than want if you can.
  2. Choose your crystals. You may do this keeping in mind the individual crystals properties and what your intentions are, but you can also work with whatever you have on hand. Most importantly, trust in your intuition and what you feel guided to use.
  3. It's important to cleanse your crystals and the space that you will be doing your crystal grid in. I like to do this by using a sage smudge stick. However, there are many ways you can cleanse your crystals. You could use sound, like crystal or Tibetan singing bowls. Moonlight is another option. You can simply place your crystals in the moonlight to cleanse them during the full moon. Other options include burying your crystals in the earth, putting them in sunlight, water, using Reiki or salt. Just be careful, as some crystals do not like water, like Selenite. This is why I prefer to stick with sage.
  4. Place the piece of paper you wrote your intentions down on in the centre of your space and while you do this, either within your mind or aloud, say what your intentions are. Take a moment to really slow down and connect with your own spirit and the energy of the universe while you do this. You may like to light a candle or play some relaxing music while you do this.
  5. Some people believe that it's best to start from the outside and go in, or others prefer to start in the middle and work out. Doing whatever feels right for you, start placing your crystals down. Some people like to use sacred geometry to do this, and it gives them an easy guide as to where they can place their crystals.
  6. The final step is to activate your grid. I like to do this using a clear quartz point. This is kind of like an energetic "dot-to-dot", as you touch each crystal with your point, drawing an invisible line to connect them to one another. It's best to leave your crystal grid set up for a period of time, rather than put it away straight away. I like to leave mine for at least 48 hours, but do whatever works for you. Some people leave them up long term. They certainly make a beautiful addition to any space.
