Crystal grids are a method used to map out how you would like stones to help you. Similar to a Tarot spread, you can organise the stones to symbolise the key issues and what you want to improve in life. Using different stones in a combination can give you extra strength and guidance. By laying out crystals in a geometrical pattern, you can choose a stone which qualities are most important to you, followed by others which act as supporting elements.
Using a crystal in everyday life is very common, and most people carry one around or wear it as jewellery to connect to its power. Bringing multiple stones together enhance the abilities of the ones you have chosen to create something tailor-made to your personal needs. Picking the right crystals for you is essential depending on what type of situation you are facing. It’s a good idea to have a look at the different types of crystals to decide which one best suits you. Many grids show different patterns but we have decided to include a simplified version as an easy to follow guide.
The Focus stone is similar to the “Heart of the Matter” tarot spread placement which is in the centre of the grid. The stone will have the key focus and is a good foundation for other stones the follow. We have used an Aquamarine as the Focus because it connects to the Throat Chakra. It helps heal a person’s fear of communication, which is ideal if you want to try and sort out an issue but have been feeling too intimidated to speak up. A stone like this one is essential because you can finally communicate with others around you. Making your desires known will open up new opportunities. A Focus stone like this will help boost your confidence so you can adjust quickly to changes that may occur. An aquamarine is also excellent to use before embarking on a journey or travel to a foreign land. It protects and enlightens those who use it, which is excellent if you are nervous about a trip or move.
The Desire stone is similar to a tarot’s “Your known desires” card placement. We have chosen a Citrine because it promotes good luck and success in life. It is an excellent stone to be surrounding the Aquamarine because it helps to boost happiness after communication and travel arrangements have successfully taken place. Linked to the Solar Plexus chakra, it helps increase personal power and energy, which will be a welcomed quality if you are someone who wants to decrease panic in their lives after a particular change. It’s bright colour and energy fights negativity which could affect you and cause anxiety in times when you need to have strength. Using six of these stones to surround the Aquamarine is a way of allowing its spirit to boost the Aquamarine, giving it another dimension of power.
The final stone is the Path Stone and for this, we have chosen a Clear Quartz to surround the Focus and Desire stone. A stone like this helps the Crown Chakra by bringing clarity and heightened intuition. These two qualities combined helps massively with communication and ties together perfectly with the other two crystal types. When coupled with the fear-tackling Aquamarine and the energy-boosting Citrine, you will begin to find obstacles much easier to overcome. Connecting with others spiritually and emotionally will be much easier, making the journey towards happiness full of support and friendship. This combination of three stones helps make a positive change to help the relationships that surround them.
It’s a great idea to combine different stones to get the best qualities. If you were to place a Turquoise as a Focus stone, it would protect you from negativity and harm. The ones you choose to surround them will only excel its power. Get a crystal reading and talk to a psychic about your current situation. That way, they can advise you on the best crystals to use while giving you spiritual guidance.
