Healing Crystals February 2018 Newsletter
In this month’s newsletter, we are going to focus on the use of crystal grids. Whether you wish to use a crystal grid for protecting your home, increasing abundance, finding love, or aide in distance healing of a loved one, setting one up is easy (not to mention fun and creative!). In our first article, “Gridding Your Space” Stephanie Arnold explains the steps on how to set up your grid, with crystal suggestions for protection, prosperity, and even a restful night’s sleep. Lourdes Lebron, in our second article “Love Grid”, shows us how to create a crystal grid to bring more love into your life.
Wishing you love and blessings,

Gridding Your Space
By Stephanie Arnold
When I first became interested in crystals I wanted to carry them all with me everywhere. As my collection expanded, I began leaving some of my crystal friends at home and thus learned the wonderful benefits of using crystal energy in my space. My crystals are now an integral part of keeping the energy of my home balanced and saturated with good energy. Crystal grids are a great way to use crystals to energize and protect your home.
When working with crystal grids, always clear the crystals you are going to use first. Set the crystals in the arrangement of your choice and then activate the grid by tracing it with a point and focusing on your intention. This pointed object can either be a natural long crystal point, a wand, or even a pointed finger. While tracing the grid, focus on the purpose of the grid, connect all the crystals, and always end on the same crystal that you started. If a wall or other immovable object is in the way of one of the lines of the grid, simply follow the line up the wall, visualize the line continuing through the wall, and then continue the line with your point/wand on the other side of the wall. Try to set the crystals where they are the least likely to be disturbed but still in the pattern of your grid. All grids should be taken down periodically to clear and charge the crystals. When the crystals are ready, reset the grid with the cleared crystals, and reactivate the crystal grid to reinforce the intention.
The most basic way to grid a room or space is by using four crystals. Place one crystal in each of the four corners of the room. Clear Quartz points work great for this. Next, activate the grid by connecting the four crystals together by using a wand to trace the rectangular shape. Remember to hold the intention of your grid while you are activating it. An area can also be gridded with other shapes, such as a triangle, a five pointed star, a Star of David (six pointed star), a circle, the four cardinal directions (North, East, South, West), a hexagon, or another shape of your choosing. Depending on the grid shape used and the intention of the grid, you will need to adjust the number and type of crystals used. Clear Quartz is a general healing crystal that easily holds a program and is a good choice for a grid of any purpose.
Here are some crystal suggestions to get you started on gridding your home:
Protection from EMFs and electromagnetic stress: Black Tourmaline in the four corners of a room will help to clear the area.
Another way to set up a grid for your whole house is to use a small crystal grid set with your intention for your home. Choose a crystal for the center of the grid and several crystals to place in a pattern radiating out from the center. Clear Quartz points are great to put around a central crystal that resonates with your intention. If you are setting up a protection grid, try to use crystals that are protective such as Black Tourmaline, Black Obsidian, Black Onyx, Labradorite or Amethyst. For prosperity and abundance, be sure to include crystals like Citrine, Pyrite, Herkimer Diamonds, Green Aventurine or Imperial Topaz. While setting up the grid, hold the intention in your heart and mind and visualize your home in your mind while you do. It also helps to place a photo of the house or write the address on a piece of paper and place it under the central crystal of your grid. Be sure to place the grid in an area that is less likely to be disturbed. A small crystal grid also needs to be cleared, charged and reactivated periodically, so don’t forget your grids when you are clearing the rest of the crystals around your home.
Setting up a grid in your space is a wonderful idea for the crystals that are left at home and not carried with you daily. It’s also a great way to enjoy the energy of those fragile crystals that wouldn’t hold up too well inside your pocket. Try using different crystals around your area to see which ones you prefer and let your intuition guide you to try new combinations as your needs evolve. Be sure to energize all of the rooms in your home with crystal grids including the bedroom, living room, children’s rooms, office and entertainment room. Enjoy filling your space with crystal energy! :-)

Although Rose Quartz has been used, you can also use Clear Quartz and/or Rose Quartz together or separately. Infuse the crystals with your intention (to bring more love into your life) by holding it in your hand and imagining the pink light of love filling the crystal.
You can leave the grid as is, enlarge the grid, minimize the grid, cut out the inner circular pattern, or cut the lines following the petal pattern. The important thing is for the heart grid to suit you and your needs.
To charge the grid, you can either use a terminated crystal or your hand to move the energy from crystal to crystal. While moving the energy, visualize light not only connecting the crystals, but moving beyond the room and out of the house.
Charge the grid starting with the center stone and moving the energy in the following manner:
A. Move to the north
B. From north, move to the east
C. Return to the center
D. Move to the east
E. From east, move to the south
F. Return to the center
G. Move to the south
H. From south, move to the west
I. Return to the center
J. Move to the west
K. From west, move to the north
L. Return to the center (do this entire cycle 2 more times for a total of 3 times around the grid).
