Here I will describe to you how to be a co-creator & tap into or communicate with source energy through using sacred geometry such as The Flower of Life symbol. Remember sacred geometry is the language of the universe from which all is built upon. If you wish to manifest healing for example, you’ll need to communicate this to the energy that creates all. You will want to send this “signal” out to help manifest whatever it is you’re wanting to help create. I must give a word of caution here. If you’re trying to create something that is not in line with the highest good for all you will inevitably create bad karma for yourself. Also, if you’re wanting to manifest something for someone else- get their permission first. You do not want to violate someone else’s free will. God & the angels do not do this & neither should you.
To define a crystal grid is the placement of stones in a geometric pattern, that are charged by your intention, for the purpose of directing energy towards a specific goal. A Flower of Life template will help you to create a platform that will communicate your wishes or intensions clearly. There are other symbols you could use but for this post I will just stick to The Flower of Life. We also use crystals in the grid. They are the energy generators. Crystals have a very stable geometric structure & will amplify the energy you are trying to create.
First, you need to figure out what it is you are wanting to manifest. Is it in regards to being healthy? Is it to help create abundance for yourself? Do you wish to create protection for you or someone else? There are many different things you could use a crystal grid for- you just need to narrow down exactly what it is you’re wanting to help create. Be specific as possible. This will help to clearly get the message across. Once you know what you would like to manifest, write it down. This will be what you say when you’re activating your grid. Be true to yourself. Write what comes from your heart. This will help deliver the message even more clearly.
Next you need to figure out where would be a good place to put your grid. You need to find a place where it won’t be disturbed or tampered with while you have it in place. Some have a sacred space where they keep the energy in the area clean of negative energy (sage smoke, sage spray, etc). This isn’t necessary to do if you don’t already have a space like this. You just need to find an area where there isn’t a lot of different energies (which can come from kids, pets, etc.) buzzing about. You don’t want to add any interfering frequencies to the energy you’re trying to create. Keep it up for as long as you feel the need to. If it gets disturbed then you will need to redo the grid which would be a great opportunity to move it if you’d like.
Now it’s time to get your supplies ready. Here’s a quick list of items you’ll need to create your crystal grid. Again, these are just very basic items. I like to keep it simple because I don’t want to overwhelm any first-time crystal gridders.

A center stone or object to place in the center (you can use a candle, picture, anything that is personal to your intention)
**Some tips here- when deciding on what types of crystals to use & their placement USE YOUR INTUITION. It will come to you. And if it doesn’t right away go do something else for a little while. It might just pop into your head when you’re not even thinking about it. If you just can’t decide use crystal quartz. It is a great stone that is universally used.**
Make sure all of your stones are cleansed & charged. To cleanse your crystals you can do any of the following:
Place in water for a few hours
Place in salt for a few hours
Smudge them with White Sage smoke
Use a tuning fork
All of these help release any negative energy the crystals may have obtained. Some crystals, such as selenite, will dissolve in water so the other methods are preferred.
Next you’ll want to charge the crystals. In the morning place them outside in the sunlight for a couple hours. You are infusing the crystals with prana or life-force energy. Do not leave them in the sun for too long as it will lighten the color of the crystals. I have had crystals that before I placed outside were energy-depleted. These same crystals, after I brought them back inside from being out in the sun, completely amazed me with their energy that was pulsing thru my hand!
Now you’re ready to clear the area for your grid. You can cleanse the area with white sage smoke or sage spray if you’d like. A sage spray is great for places where you cannot burn anything. When you clear the area of other/negative energies you will be able to get your “signal” out more clearly.
Assemble your components together. Keep a calm energy while doing so. Use your intuition for crystal placement. You can add crystals to the outside of a grid also. Once set up- get your activator point. This point you’ll be using for connecting the crystals by drawing an imaginary line which energetically binds them together. While you’re connecting them read your heartfelt affirmation that you wrote.
After you’re finished take a minute to visualize what you’re trying to create becoming a reality. Feel how it would be if your intentions manifested right in front of you. Be in this moment. Once you feel like you’ve completed this state “let it be”.
Even though this process may take a little time to do it should not be grueling. Don’t read too much into it. And don’t get discouraged if you feel you didn’t do it right the first time. Practice makes perfect and you can always create another grid. In the next week or so I will be offering Flower of Life grids, crystal quartz sets, activator points, and special intention candles in my Etsy shop.
If you would like a more in-depth “how to” of crystal gridding I highly recommend Hibiscus Moon’s book Crystal Grids. It is an amazing book & she gives such detailed information on this subject.
