Learn how to use crystal grids for healing, protection, and more.
Crystal grid and healing sets are groups of stones that go together for a purpose. Sets of crystals and stones are used for ritual magickal or spiritual crystal healing purposes or with Reiki-Seichim energy work for healing. Some are generalized and others have specific purposes.
When setting up any crystal grid or crystal healing grid set, there are some general guidelines that are helpful to follow.
- Clear the crystals to remove any negative energy they may have picked up.
- Ground yourself and clear your environment before starting.
About.com has a good exercise on grounding yourself.
Clearing the environment can be done by smudging with sage or incense, among other ways.
Use your favorite method that you're confortable with.
- Focus your intent as you start to set up the crystals. If you're distracted by personal concerns you may want to wait until you can be more focused, as the energy of your thoughts can affect the grid.
For crystal healing in person:
The crystals and stones can be placed
Upon the Subject
Be extra careful when placing crystals or stones in particularly sensitive areas such as eyelids. You can use a pre-planned grid or pattern, or place the stones on the chakras, or use your intuition to access healing information from the Divine and use a pattern of your own devising. I have a few grids to share.
Below the Subject
Again, you can use pre-planned grids or patterns or use your intuition. Crystals can be placed under a massage table or bed the healee is on, or directly under them. Be careful of accidentally causing stone bruises, and pad the stones if necessary when placing them under the healee.
Near the Subject
Near or touching the body in a pattern around the healee can work well for healing. You can effectively make the healee part of the pattern in this way.
For distance healing:
You can use a substitute or surrogate to stand in for the actual healee who is at a distance from you. A photograph of the healee, their name written on a piece of paper, or other symbolic surrogate works well.
For ritual magick:
After preparing for your magickal ceremony, use the stones to help focus the energy of your ritual magick, or as specified in the spell or charm you are working with.
