You've probably heard of crystal grids. You might even have seen them on Pinterest, Instagram, or your favorite metaphysical shop. And maybe you've thought to yourself, "I want to make one of those!"

But what is a crystal grid? And how can you make one? Let us fill you in on the wonders of crystal grids now.

What is a Crystal Grid?

A crystal grid is a tool you can use to bring energy into your life. You can create a crystal grid on an altar or in the center of your living room, and it will be there to help you with whatever you need.

A crystal grid is formed when you place crystals in a pattern around your home or altar. The crystals act as conduits for energy, which means they can bring good vibes into any space they're placed in.

There are many different kinds of crystal grids—some people use them to focus on health, others to focus on success, and others to connect with loved ones who have passed away. No matter your goal, it's important to remember that crystals are tools for focusing your intentions and augmenting them with positive energy.

What is a Crystal Grid Used For?

A crystal grid is a tool we can use to create a sacred space and invite in the energy of our intention. This can be done by arranging stones in specific patterns and then charging them with our desired intention.

By arranging crystals, it can help eliminate negative energy, creating new space for positive vibrations.

Many also create grids to increase the energy of crystals so they can bask from their healing energy.

These grids can also be used for manifestation. Whether you wish to attract abundance, protection, or romance, placing the crystals in specific shapes and areas can help you realize your intentions.

The different shapes of crystal grids--symmetrical, geometric, abstract.

Step #1: Identify Your Intentions

The first step to creating your own crystal grid is to identify your intention.

What do you want to achieve with your grid? Do you want to manifest more abundance in your life? Are you looking for protection from negative energy? Perhaps you're seeking guidance on your spiritual path.

Whatever your intention may be, it's important to be clear about it before you begin setting up your grid. This will help you choose the right crystals to work with and determine the layout of your grid.

Step #2: Select Your Crystals

Once you've decided on your intention, it's time to choose the crystals that you'll be using. Some people like to use all one type of crystal, while others prefer to mix and match different types. There is no right or wrong way to do this- it's all about what feels right for you.

There are many factors to consider when choosing crystals for your grid. The type of energy you want to attract or manifest is a good place to start. For example, if you're trying to find more peace in your life, try using amethyst. If you wish to attract a new romantic partner or a new career, try rose quartz or citrine, respectively.

Once you have an idea of the type of energy you want to attract or manifest, you can start looking for specific crystals that will help you achieve your goal. There are many online crystal shops and resources that can help you find the perfect crystals for your needs.

Step #3: Cleanse your crystals

Before you start working with your crystals, it's important to cleanse them of any negative energy they may have picked up. There are many ways to do this, but some simple methods include using sage smoke or running them under cold water.

Once you've cleansed your crystals, it's time to move on to the next step.

Step #4: Choose a location

After you've cleansed the crystals, decide where you want to put them. This can be inside or outside, depending on your preference. It's important to choose a place where you won't be disturbed and where you feel comfortable.

Once you've chosen a location, it's time to start setting up your grid.

Step #5: Arrange your crystals

There are many different ways to arrange crystals in a grid. You will need to find a shape that resonates with you—whether it's symmetrical patterns, geometric shapes, or an abstract concept. This will be the foundation of your grid.

There is no right or wrong way to do this. It's all about what feels right for you. But one thing to keep in mind is the energy flow of your grid. It's important to create a flow of energy that goes from the center of your grid outwards. You can do this by placing larger crystals in the center and smaller ones around the outside. You can use crystals alone or add other tools like candles and flowers.

Another thing to consider is the placement of your crystals in relation to each other. Some people like to leave space between each crystal, while others prefer to have them touching. Again, there is no right or wrong way to do this.

Once you've arranged your crystals in a way that feels right, it's time to move on to the next step.

Step #6: Activate your grid

The final step is to activate your grid. This can be done in many different ways, but some popular methods include using sage smoke or crystal singing bowls.

Once you've activated your grid, it's important to leave it undisturbed for at least 24 hours. This will give the crystals time to adjust to their new environment and start working on your intention.

After 24 hours, you can remove your grid and enjoy the benefits of your hard work!


Crystal grids are an easy, inexpensive way to create focused energy in your home or workplace. They're also a wonderful method to connect with the therapeutic characteristics of crystals, which may assist you in feeling more at ease and centered in your body.

You can use a grid to enhance the energy of any room in your home, creating a healthy environment for healing, protection, or manifestation.

Some say grids work best when they have been created on an astrological date and time (when planets align) because it makes them more powerful. Others believe that creating grids on certain days is better than others for specific purposes (e.g., Mondays for money).

However, the most important thing is that you feel comfortable with what you've created—that it feels right for you and the space where you're setting it up.
