Here is a question from one of our customers:
Q: I would want to set up a grid for my daughter's healing who has depression (not recognizing that she is sick and refuse to speak to anybody nor seek help from any medical doctors. What other stones would be most effective to use in addition to clear quartz and which area of the grid should I place those? Any suggestions as to what type of grid should I create for this type of illness? I will be working on this grid alone and not involving my daughter as I'm sure she will trash my crystals away. Can I do this work to focus on healing her illness without her being involve with it?
I must share the standard disclaimer that I am not a doctor and cannot give out medical advice. Crystals for healing should be used as a compliment to other therapies and not as a replacement for regular medical care. With that said, for your condition, I would like to start by suggesting some crystals that can help to ease pain, uplift the spirit, and remove/release anger and fear.
There is no set number of crystals you must use to set up a grid. It depends on you and what you feel. A grid can be as simple as three crystals or as complex as 20 crystals. A grid will include the crystals chosen to match your goal, such as healing, crystals to power the grid , and a center or activator crystal to focus the energy of the grid. For depression you goal crystals could include Amber, Jet, Blue Sapphire, Chrysolite, Smokey Quartz. Your power crystal can be your Clear Quartz points, and the activator may be a small cluster, Tower, a single large crystal. If you are doing this healing grid for another person, not yourself, include a picture of that person in the center of the grid, under the activator crystal.
Chose any crystals from this list as your goal crystals, . To set up your grids alternate your goal crystals with your power crystals. the activator crystal will be set in the center of the grid. If you wish to leave it up for an extended period of time, place it some where it will not be disturbed. Over time, about once a week clean, recharge and reprogram the crystals with your intended goal and will for the healing. Grids need not be hard or complicated. They are a wonderful tool to assist you in attaining a goal. Experiment with them and enjoy using them. You can't go wrong if you have the best intentions in your heart.
