I have been making crystal grids right and left lately. After I became a Level III Stone Grid Practitioner in 2013, I made a grid here or there. I occasionally set up a few grids for myself, other family members, or to attract more abundance into my life. Then I began setting up grids for friends - one who has cancer, one who wants to stop smoking, and so on.
But recently I got inspired to do a heck of a lot more! I started setting one up weekly for my Facebook Reiki Distant Healing event that I do for my Facebook Reiki group "REIKI FOR YOU AND ME." Now I am even setting up grids for clients for relationship issues and more!
I discovered that making grids is an art form, a very creative outlet, and I LOVE IT! I've always been artistic in one way or the other. I studied Art in College and won 3 scholarships for some of my work, and was a Professional Quilt Maker in Illinois for over 10 years, making over several hundred quilts and craft items.
A few new things I've learned about grids is that the center crystal/stone (also referred to as the anchor stone) should be bigger than any of the other crystals/stones in the grid (the supporting stones), according to the author Hibiscus Moon in her book "Crystal Grids - How and Why They Work." This was new information for me and I've studied Crystal Healing for many, many years, so I am going to be putting that to the test.
Additionally, I took pictures of the grids that I set up for the Distant Reiki Healing weekly event and posted them on a Crystal Healing Facebook group I'm in, and also sent some of the pics to a few participants of the event. I started getting reports from people that they could feel the energy of the grid flowing out to them just from the picture, even after I had taken the grid down and cleared all the stones, and maybe even re-used some to make other grids. Again, NEW INFORMATION FOR ME, and astonishing!!!!!! The energy somehow still exists in some kind of form and can be transmitted though a photograph. WOW!!!!!
So if you are drawn to work with crystals/stones I highly recommend that you begin experimenting with Crystal Grids. Here is a couple of internet links to get you started:
I am a certified Crystal Healer in two lineages and Master Stone Grid Practitioner, as well as an Usui and Karuna Reiki Master Teacher, and Crystal Reiki Master. Recently, I've been playing around a lot with crystal grids for the weekly Reiki Distant Healing event on my Reiki Facebook group, REIKI FOR YOU AND ME, setting up a different grid each week for that purpose. I also have several grids set up for different people who have some pretty serious issues and need a little something extra and one in my healing space under the massage table. Crystal grids are a great alternative to sending Distant Reiki Healing the standard way using symbols.
After doing several of them, I discovered two extremely interesting and powerful things about combining Reiki with crystal grids. One is you can charge it after you activate it with Reiki and send Reiki to it every day or every other day to re-charge it. You can check in with your guidance using muscle testing or dowsing with a pendulum to see when it needs recharging. Here is one of my grids, stare at it or call in the energy of it in meditation and feel the energy!
The other is even after you have taken the grid down and it no longer exists in the physical world, just looking at the grid in picture form will give you the same energy it gave out when it was created, activated and charged. This was brand new and mind blowing information for me! Stare at this grid for a few minutes and see what you feel. You might even call in the energy of the grid if you know how to do that, in meditation.
If you are interested in working with crystal grids, I suggest you invest in a book on crystals/stones like "The Crystal Bible" by Judy Hall or "The Book of Stones" by Robert Simmons and Naisha Ahsian. You will need to know the properties of all the crystal/stone so you can make educated decisions about which ones you'd like to make your grid with. There are so many books out there to choose from, these two are just some of the best ones I know of. Again, use these books to choose which crystals/stones you would like to have in your grid, based on the purpose of the grid (your healing and what issues), or whatever other purpose/s you would like for example: World Peace, for a friend or relative having serious health issues, or to break an addiction. Books like "Crystal Grids" by Hibiscus Moon will teach you how to set them up (arrange them geometrically) and how to activate and charge them properly. There are a slew of books on Crystal Grids out there also.
If you don't have a local crystal/stone/rock shop in your area, you can always order your supplies on line.
