Creating a Crystal Grid for Luck

A ‘Grid’ is a way to arrange the stones in a sacred geometric pattern. They are then consciously ‘activated’ by connecting a ‘line of Light’ between the stones so that they radiate an energy field in the immediate environment in which they are constructed. Those of you who are sensitive to energy will be able to tell immediately that there is a shift of energy in the room where you construct a grid. Depending on which stones you choose, there will either be a gentle shift… or a very tangible one.
Consider these stones when constructing a “luck grid”: Aventurine, Cat’s Eye, Fairy’s Cross, Jade, Lodestone, Selenite, Tiger’s Eye, Turquoise.
You will need:
A Positive Affirmation – “Energy follows thought”. Program thoughts to be positive and your energy will flow there. Affirmations are words, which state your intention and allow the mental energy to be in the correct place. “Good luck will follow me everywhere”, I am one of the luckiest people”, I deserve all the good luck that comes my way”, I create my own luck”.
Crystal wand – is utilized as an energy conductor and transfers your energy through the crystal to your grid and stone formation. This can also be done with the Master crystal.
Intention – is probably the most important aspect when it comes to gridding. Our intention is our greatest gift in order to serve our purpose. Positive thinking is what intention implies. State your intention (your positive affirmation “with meaning”).Master crystal – the main crystal that is different from the others. This is the crystal you have the most affinity to. It will be the crystal in the center of your grid and/or can be the crystal you use to trace the energy of your grid.
Sacred Geometry: Grid Patterns.
The universe is created by a thought consciousness which manifests in physical reality through a geometric blueprint that is call Sacred Geometry which repeats in cycle giving the illusion of linear time. The term “sacred geometry” is used by archaeologists, anthropologists, and geometricians to encompass the religious, philosophical, and spiritual beliefs that have sprung up around geometry in various cultures during the course of human history.
Almost every religion, culture and part of the world, have their own specific meaning to go along side these definitions. These shapes are universally recognized and play a part of our subconscious mind in one way or another.
Circle (ball): An ancient and universal symbol of unity, wholeness, infinity, the goddess, and female power. A romantic attachment or deep friendship and a sacred space. The circle symbolizes the sacred and spiritual including the “sacred” earth.
Diamond (faceted): Because of its perfect symmetry, the diamond vibrates toward harmony. This makes it an excellent shape for meditation gardens or those used for culinary purposes. As this shape also vibrates toward the solidity of Earth, it’s a good bet for magical gardens involving prosperity and abundance, and issues of the family, home, and hearth.
Hexagon: is a polygon with six edges and six vertices. The word hexagon is derived from the Latin hexagnum, from Greek hexagnos, having six angles. This hexagonal star is faceted and carved from natural crystal. Use it for balancing Chakras, laying on problem areas, creating a crystal grid, to amplify the power of your other stones, power up your positive affirmations. Place this star in any room where you want to create a balanced, healthy environment.
Rectangle: The rectangle symbolizes the female form. Intelligence; Protector; Divine contemplation. The rectangle also symbolizes the equilibration of the fourfold force.
Square: The Square represents the physical world. Like the quartered circle, it points pagans to the four compass directions: north, east, south and west.
Star (merkaba): are drawn by ambitious people and may suggest a desire for self-promotion. Little stars indicate optimism, while symmetrical stars suggest excess energy. A sign of hope, love, joy and prosperity, protection against fires, good fortune, hope, love, fertility, energy and harmony. The unique qualities of the star (merkaba) are the divine light vehicle used by ascended masters to connect with those in tune with the higher realms. “Mer” means Light. “Ka” means Spirit. “Ba” means Body. Mer-Ka-Ba means the spirit/body surrounded by counter-rotating fields of light, (wheels within wheels), spirals of energy as in DNA, which transports spirit/body from one dimension to another.
Triangle (pyramid): Associated with the number three. Pointing upwards, it symbolizes fire, male power, good luck; Pointing down, it symbolizes water, female sexuality, goddess, religions, take care.
Creating Your Grid
Place your chosen crystals into your grid pattern. (Choose your pattern above). These crystals go on the outside of the grid with the master crystal in the center. Now you have a pattern on your surface that will serve you.
Connecting the stones with energy. To connect the grid lines start by pointing the crystal wand or Master crystal toward the one crystal holding it a few inches above the grid. When you feel the energy flow move the crystal wand up to the crystal at the top of the grid drawing a line of energy, then move diagonally to the crystal on the left, then back to the center, then retrace the line you just drew, then move to the next crystal on the left. Go back to center and then retrace that line you just drew, then continue around the grid as you say your affirmation.
The process appears to look like you are cutting a pie, except you are retracing each line from the center back out. When you feel that you are finished come back to the top crystal and then move to the central crystal. If you used the Master crystal for tracing the energy, now place it back in the center. Allow your final intention of energy to flow into the central crystal. (Connecting the lines and affirming the healing power is done daily to keep the grid active 24 hours a day).
