What is a Crystal Grid?
A crystal grid involves the act of physically putting an array of stones together in a symmetrical pattern to amplify the metaphysical properties of each crystal. Crystal grids, together with the user’s set intentions, are thought to channel the properties of the stone and release an energetic frequency. The user will then be able to absorb the palpable energy that is said to fulfil the set intentions and set the energy of the space.

Step 4: Get Creative!
Begin placing your crystals on the preferred grid pattern while keeping your intention in mind. Activate your grid by placing your main master crystal in the middle of the grid. Work your way to place the other remaining crystals in an interval pattern.
Pro-tip: Should your crystals have points (ie. tower-shaped), ensure that they are faced outwards, away from the centre. Doing so allows the crystals’ energy to flow towards the remainder crystals in the grid, and therefore, the user.
Location of Crystal Grid
According to Feng Shui Masters, the placement of crystals would depend on the user’s intention and the Bagua areas of the home.
For example, if one would want to activate the energy of an Abundance crystal grid, the South-East area of the home (or the Wealth and Prosperity area) would be a great location. It could also be just the in the user’s work or study room.
