Crystal Grids for Good Communication

Crystal Grids for Good Communication

“It is important to listen well and understand others as well as to be heard and understood. These blue gems interact well with each other to amplify the intention of good communication which includes listening and expressing oneself with ease.

  • Amazonite—This stone helps you graciously speak up for yourself and reminds you to listen to what others have to say.This helps all parties avoid making inaccurate assumptions that might lead to hurt feelings. With this stone in your grid, you are better able to discern the truth and set boundaries with those around you who are not coming from a place of genuineness and integrity. When your words come from a loving and compassionate place, they have the power to heal or improve a situation.
  • Angelite—Communication is a two-way process of sending and receiving, so employ this stone when you need to be a better listener. Use it to sort out your thoughts before you speak. Ask God and the angels for understanding and calming energy to allow for true communication, which includes active listening as well as speaking.
  • Blue lace agate—This stone improves your ability to communicate with others and speak your truth. Use it in your grid when you want to be heard and truly understood. This stone helps you to listen more closely when others speak and to really hear and understand what they are trying to express. It also helps you develop the ability to read between the lines. Blue lace agate increases your ability to stay calm and peaceful in times of stress and turmoil, and it aids you in appropriately communicating your emotions and feelings. It’s also a good stone to have when you want to have good timing.”

Crystal Grids on the Desk and in the Office

Crystal Grids on the Desk and in the Office

“The choices for placement of stones on your desk are unlimited. There is no need to make geometric formations with the crystals placed on a desk, though you can if you wish, of course. Simply place gemstones within your line of sight and your reach so you can gaze at the stone or pick it up easily. Again, you can create a crystal grid for your desk and/or office that suits exactly the type of energy you want to invite into your work life.

What’s on My Desk? What’s on Your Desk?
Keeping crystals and gemstones close by while you work is a powerful way to bring in all types of positive energy, like extra focus, high motivation, deep intuition, unleashed creativity, and so on. My writing desk is always covered by a variety of gemstones, which I might change from time to time depending on what sort of energy I want to invite into my workspace. I place all the stones within my line of vision in a row in front of my monitors. You may want to create a special grid with the stones you place on your desk or just line them up like I do. Here’s what you’ll find on my desk as I write this, and what these same stones might do for you in your workspace:

Carnelian—This beautiful tumbled piece of carnelian is a constant reminder to me to take action and give birth to the many ideas and inspirational products that flow through my consciousness. I consider this particular piece my writing companion. Sometimes it’s just in my peripheral vision reminding me to maintain forward momentum with a manuscript or article. Other times, it’s a motivator to finalize something.

Clear quartz tabular point—A tabular point is flat and narrow on one termination and the other point is rounder and wider, making this piece of quartz a bit unusual looking. The flat portion on one side of the point has triangular markings, creating a crystalline castle–type appearance. I gaze at this stone when I’m contemplating what I’ll be writing next or when I’m happily waiting for a deeper understanding of something so that I can put it in writing.

Elestial (record keeper) quartz—I keep two elestial smoky quartz crystals on my desk to keep me in communication with the angelic realm. One is shaped like a scepter point with cathedral-like turret formations. The record keeper markings (which look like a series of fine triangular etchings, but are completely natural) are predominant on both of them. Legend has it that these geometric treasures (which hold records of the past, present, and potential future realities) were brought to earth by the heavenly realm through the ethers, which is why this skeletal-like quartz often looks singed.

Sodalite—I keep three pieces of this stone on my desk. Two are large tumbled stones, and the other is an extraordinary heart-shaped piece. I focus on this trio when I need to calm myself and slow down. If I feel agitated about something, especially if it involves a business matter that I’m discussing on the phone, I either hold them or gaze at them to ground myself and regain my sense of calm. Also, the deep blue of this stone aligns me with the energy of inspired thinking while I write.

Kunzite—Three pieces of kunzite have their home on my desk. Kunzite is my constant reminder to stay focused on love and kindness. As a human, it is too easy to get angry or feel frustrated. Kunzite reminds me to stay focused on my heart; therefore, anything unlike love melts away.

Jade— My jade is my reminder that it takes a community to do all the work I offer and that the wonderful members of my staff are an integral part of getting the message of love and positive thinking out into the world.”

Staying in “Grid Mode” by Margaret Ann Lembo

Staying in “Grid Mode” by Margaret Ann Lembo

“A crystal grid allows you to extend a positive intention out to the world for the purpose of contributing to universal peace and harmony. Such grids can be permanently established within a physical space or constructed as part of a solo or group meditation wherein the participants focus their intention on benefitting the world around them. When undertaken with strong positive intention, the results of such grids can be transformative.

The most important factor in establishing a grid is the intention of the grid itself and maintaining a focus on that intention. You know how easy it for our minds to wander off to the grocery store list, what someone said that hurt our feelings or any variety of random thoughts and feelings. When you are intentionally working with a grid, you will want to rid yourself of those extraneous thoughts and stay focused on the matter at hand. I recommend that you choose a crystal for that purpose, a stone you designate as the “I-will-stay-focused” stone. I’ve personally used laser quartz crystals, a kyanite blade, a natural formed black tourmaline, and selenite rods or wands. Regardless of which gem you pick for this purpose, establish a key phrase to keep your mind on the intention of the grid. I use the phrase, “Love, light, and well-being for the highest good of all concerned” or some variation on that.”

Create Your Grid with Intention

There is no wrong way to create a grid. Whether you are creating a grid to step into and lie down in or creating a small one for your alter, the use of geometry to link up one crystal to another is the way to go. Geometrics is simply a series of geometric shapes—lines, circles, squares, rectangles, and triangles—to form a design or a pattern.

Use a line to amplify and direct an intention between two crystals. Square formations are beneficial for grounding and stabilizing the reason for the grid. Rectangles are a simple variation on the square when you want to elongate or lengthen the time and space for the effectiveness of the intention within the grid. And, my personal favorite, triangle grids establish an alignment between heaven and earth. Use the triangle formation to request amplify assistance from angels and guides.”

Beginner’s Grid Making

Beginner’s Grid Making by Margaret Ann Lembo

“A crystal grid is the use of gemstones in geometric formations placed in or around a person, place or thing to achieve the formed intention. Crystal grids can be combined with crystal alignments with larger groups of people at sacred sites. Using crystals for essences to spray, in a charm bag, or in a grid, use the gems to focus your intentions for your daily life. Add prayers and positive affirmations to support your intentions. There are many ways to incorporate gemstones as a tool for amplifying all that is good.

Bring your rocks to bed. Place a smooth tumbled stone under your pillow or inside your pillowcase before going to sleep. You can also place it on your nightstand or under your mattress, or hold it in your hand as you fall asleep. A crystal grid on your night table or around your bed may be beneficial as well.

 

Create an altar or grid of gemstones. A crystal altar is simple to create. Simply choose a space in your home like a countertop, a windowsill, or a table. Either place the crystals in a bowl or create an attractive display or geometric formation with your intention in mind. There is a feeling of accomplishment and divine connection when we make a ritual out of working with gemstones. Find out more about creating a grid in Chapter 7 in my book, Crystals Beyond Beginners: Awaken Your Consciousness with Precious Gifts from the Earth.

Place gemstones around your home and office. Keep the crystal that aligns with your intention on your desk as a reminder. Place the chosen stones on windowsills, countertops, end tables, coffee tables, and so on.”

Mary Magdalene and the Feminine Christ Consciousness: Aromatics and Gems By Margaret Ann Lembo

Mary Magdalene’s energy is useful to connect with to open your heart to unconditional love and empowered wisdom. She is the Feminine Christ Consciousness. Align with this icon of the Divine to activate the blessings of the matriarchal vibration. Mary Magdalene is considered to be a saint by the Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, Anglican, and Lutheran churches. Other churches honor her as a heroine of the faith. Her life and work goes beyond any organized religion.

The matching vibrational gemstone, magenta-dyed agate can help you to balance your emotions, thereby increasing your emotional maturity. The color magenta is a reminder of the Divine Mother within, who hears and knows truth and accepts you unconditionally. This stone amplifies retribution, both positive and negative. Utilize the energy to amplify your intention through your heart and the upper heart, thymus, to project love into all your thoughts, goals, and actions. Other gemstones that are a vibrational match are colbaltoan calcite, phosphosiderite, and rhodonite.

 

 

There are texts that have been uncovered that confirm Jesus’ marriage to Mary Magdalene and the birth of their children. Historical data and historical novels document this information which offers a higher level of awareness for Mary Magdalene’s role as the wife of Jesus the Christ. There is historical evidence that indicates that she was an evolutionary aromatherapist. It is a well-known fact that she used spikenard (nard) on the feet of Jesus the Christ prior to the series of events that lead to the crucifixion.

To align with this evolutionary aromatherapist, use matching aromatics to activate the wise one within you along with the Feminine Christ Consciousness. Essential oils like rose, spikenard, and cedarwood are just a few that you can use to fragrance your sacred space. Certain scents are associated with various spiritual archetypes.

For example, the scent of roses is often also associated with Mother Mary, or the Divine Feminine. Saint Therese of Lisieux, known as the Little Flower, is associated with lilies, orris root, jasmine, violets, and roses. She is quoted as saying, “I will spend my heaven doing good on earth. I will let fall a shower of roses.” Her signature is the rose, which is her way of sending a sign to anyone who needs to know his or her prayers have been heard. In 1531, Our Lady of Guadalupe proved her identity to Juan Diego, an Aztec Indian, with Castilian roses growing on the dry dessert hill on which she had appeared. These are just a few of the examples of the spiritual realm providing signs through scent.

Spikenard played an important support role for Jesus the Christ as administered by Mary Magdalene. Spikenard is a sedative. It relaxes the muscles, helps you sleep, and reduces anxiety and physical tension. Spikenard has been used as a sleep aid and muscle relaxant for thousands of years. It is part of the valerian family and is also known as muskroot. In some historical accounts, it states that spikenard was the oil in the alabaster jar used by Mary Magdalene on the feet of her husband, Jesus the Christ, to prepare him for the torture that lead to his death.

Add cedarwood to synergistic blends intended to clear away negativity. Just as sage and cedar are traditionally burned together for ceremonial use and smudging, use the essential oils of sage and cedarwood together in an aroma-energetic mist to spritz away negative energy. Cedarwood is helpful for meditation and prayer work. Cedarwood deepens your spiritual practice and rituals. It is useful when you want to ground a visualization practice or focused intent to draw upon the gifts of the law of attraction. It helps bring about prophetic visions.

Use this affirmation to connect with the wisdom of this wise woman while you integrate the use of gemstones and essential oils. Hold the stone, breathe deeply, and clear your mind as you think good thoughts.

I integrate spirituality into my everyday life. I have a connection with the Divine. With every step I take, I am aware of my connection with the sacred ground. I align my consciousness with gentleness, compassion, and goodwill toward all. My focus is on compassion and kindness.

Selenite, Smudging, and Sprays: Spiritual Hygiene

Selenite, Smudging, and Sprays: Spiritual Hygiene by Margaret Ann Lembo

 

Do find yourself slightly off after a day of activities? Beyond the natural need for rest, this feeling of imbalance is often the result of picking up the energy those around you. There is often residue of all types of energy in buildings, stores, schools, and so on. To maintain vitality and emotional balance, utilize tools for spiritual hygiene.

Selenite, a form of the mineral gypsum, aligns you with higher consciousness and love. It is a vibrational tool that activates mental clarity and focus. Selenite is a cleansing stone. Selenite is a reminder that you are spiritually, physically, and mentally aligned, it is easy to keep your emotions in balance. This stone helps you detach from drama and thereby gain a greater understanding of people and situations. Use this stone like a magic wand of love, light, and goodness to help dissipate any feelings of inadequacy, jealousy, doubt, fears, or any other type of negativity.

Smudging, the traditional spiritual practice of clearing away negative energy is a powerful way to clear out these vibes. Using the smoke of burning herbs typically dried sage focus on the intentional of removing these troublesome energies. Because of its ethereal qualities and its tendency to rise toward the heavens, smoke has been used in spiritual practices for millennia. When the herbs are burned, the smoke emitted is directed to all parts of the room or space being cleared. This is performed with the intention of releasing negative thoughts, words, actions, or other energies created by yourself or others that have accumulated there. In addition to clearing a physical space, smudging can be used for clearing the energy or aura of a person. You can even use it for clearing away any negative energy that has accumulated on specific possessions.

 

Equally as effective, the smokeless alternative, use a liquid combination of essential oils, vibrational flower essences, and holy waters around you and your space. The pleasant scent and the beneficial properties of the liquid restore equilibrium. Sage and cedar essential oils (two drops or milliliters of sage to one of cedar) combined with water in a spray bottle is an easy recipe to create your own personal liquid smudge. You can use an essential oil, such as sweet marjoram, on the base of your neck, your temples, and the base of your spine to “seal in” the clearing for added benefit. This is especially beneficial if you are feeling emotional or extremely out of sorts.

When I first created Smudge in Spray in the late 1990s, it was to clear away negativity and bring forth blessings. It also improved my respiratory health due to the combination of ingredients. Of course, I had to add Holy Water to the formula. During my travels over the years, I’ve been collecting and accumulating Holy Water from spiritual sights around the globe. In more recent years, my reader fans have gifted me with bottles of Holy Water from their local cathedral. It’s a gift that keeps on giving because I then add those Holy Waters to Smudge in Spray which has now become the number one best-selling smudge spray or liquid alternative to smudging. Check your local store or get it here from us at The Crystal Garden. It can be found from NYC to London, from Miami to Japan.

Whether you are using a smokeless smudge spray or a smoking smudge stick or herbs, simply spray or “smoke” your auric, or energy, field. Alternatively, spray the mist or allow the smoke to rise above and in front of you and walk into it. As the mist or smoke settles on and around you, imagine that your energy field is being cleared. Keep your mind focused on clearing away that which is no longer for your highest good and visualize, imagine, or know that you are inviting blessings and love to replace the negative energy or thoughtforms.

When you perform this for another person, spray the mist or release the smoke around his or her energy field, or allow the person to walk into the smoke or mist as described. Remind the person to visualize that the negativity is clearing away, making room for positive energy to enter.

Just like dust accumulates in corners of your home, take the time to consciously remove negative energy and employ these tools to restore well-being. Clear your energetic space then observe the difference in the way you feel. Note the shift in the way your days unfold when you keep the vibrations of your space vibrating at the rate of love.

The real purpose of smudging originates from the part of you that remembers your true nature, which is calm, peaceful, and happy. Smudging isn’t simply the removal of negativity, but more important, it is the remembrance of love, kindness, compassion, and true happiness. Find inner strength and cultivate self-confidence. Incorporate selenite, smudging, and sprays into your days and enjoy life!

Summertime Crystal Grid Ideas for Nature and Outdoors By Margaret Ann Lembo

Summertime Crystal Grid Ideas for Nature and Outdoors By Margaret Ann Lembo

A crystal grid is the use of gemstones in a geometric pattern placed on or around a person, place, or thing to achieve the desired intention. The use of sacred geometry to realize a goal is employed by many including metaphysicians, spiritual teachers, and spiritual practitioners.

Create a grid of stones in your backyard for summertime enjoyment. Set your intention and decide which gems best suit the situation. For an outdoor grid, I recommend that you take note of where you are placing the crystals around your yard.

Here is a step-by-step guide to get you going.

  • Write down a clear intention that defines the purpose of the grid.
  • Pick the crystals that will positively affect change.
  • State your intention
  • Intuitively place the stones around the space
  • Use your imagination and visualize beams of light connecting every stone for love and well-being.

Around the pool area use aquamarine, blue lace agate, chrysoprase, selenite align you with the spirits of water, relaxation, and comfort.

By the barbecue grill area use apatite, clear quartz, green calcite, hematite, rose quartz, smoky quartz to improve cooking abilities to provide your loved ones with healthy food.

For the gardener in you, make a grid to connect with nature spirits to support your gardening efforts. Choose andalusite, clear quartz, green moss agate, green tourmaline, and tree agate.

When creating a crystal grid in a landscape or even at home, room or office, remember to envision the crystals that are placed throughout the space connected energetically to create a geometric formation. In your mind’s eye, connect the crystals with beams of light in order to create the grid. Your imagination is key in this process. Use it and visualize your desired outcome.

Matching Up Crystals with Intentions and Positive Thoughts by Margaret Ann Lembo

Crystals and gemstones are tools for focusing your thoughts on your intentions and goals. Use crystals alongside two other key tools: visualization and imagination. Intentions and positive thoughts are the products of both. Energetically match up your intentions and thoughts with crystal and gemstone allies to help you focus on major life concerns and bring into your life what you desire. Crystal intentions amplify the beneficial effects of the law of attraction.

There are six main areas that are most important to most people. These are:
• Friendship, Love, Relationships, and Romance
• Health and Well-Being• Money, Creativity, and Motivation
• Safety and Protection
• Happiness and Self-Confidence
• Intuition and Communication

For each of these areas of life, there are a number of crystals to choose from to assist you with your intentions. There are just a couple listed here. Use your intuition when choosing your crystals. When you’ve established your intention, incorporate the crystal into your life in one of the following ways:
• Wear the stone in a piece of jewelry
• Bring your rocks to bed and the bedroom
• Create an altar or grid of gemstones
• Place gemstones around your home and office.

Vitality: Ruby and Rutilated Quartz

Everything is energy, and all energy has a vibration. Crystals also have energy and vibration, and their vibration is based on the stone’s color and the manner in which the stone formed in the earth. Inner peace and calm are the keys to a healthy, balanced life. There are many gems you can use to maintain your awareness of habits of health. Ruby and rutilated quartz are especially useful to increase vim and vigor.


Use ruby or rutilated quartz to maintain focus and unblock underlying challenges regarding physical well-being and vitality as a tool for your physical body.


Use ruby when you decide to align with your core inner strength. This gemstone, due to its hardness and red energy, revs you up with the fuel required to live life to the fullest. Use ruby to keep on your person to encourage vitality and endurance. Repeat a positive thought to match ruby like: “Vital life force flows vibrantly through me. I am strong and health.”


Use rutilated quartz when you are working toward improving your energy level. The golden rutile inclusions within the stone enhance physical endurance. Decide that you intend to add chi or life force to the body. This positive affirmation is beneficial to repeat with rutilated quartz in hand: “I am grateful that my vital life force provides me with the energy and motivation to live life to the fullest!”
Integrate the power of positive thought into your daily life as often as you can. The gems will serve as reminders. Keep them on your person or put them in places where you will see them. When setting an intention, add the caveat that the outcome be for the highest good of all concerned. Wherever your thoughts go, action follows, and results are established.

Mindful Manifestation with Crystals and Gemstones by Margaret Ann Lembo

Are you ready to improve your ability to create your world as you want it to be? Ask yourself, “Am I fulfilled and happy?” If the answer isn’t a resounding, “YES!” then it’s time to awaken. Mindfulness is key to improve your spiritual and personal life. As you strive for personal growth, become self-aware. Start the self-awareness journey by becoming conscious of all the thoughts going through your mind.

What is mindfulness? Mindfulness is being aware of your thoughts and consciously choosing which thoughts you allow into your mind. You create your reality with every thought, word, and action including outside influence. Outside influences include your choices of entertainment, reading, and music as well as conversations that you participate in. Your mind and intention design your days and your life.

Crystals and gemstones have been used for millennia to help with meditation and mindful manifestation. Crystals are tools that provide you with the ability to maintain mindfulness with focused intention. Crystals and gemstones are transformative tools that are found all throughout the world. They can help you in your spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical personal development. Based on metaphysical principles, they can assist you in staying focused on your intentions to create and maintain positive change in your life. With the right vibrational matching gemstone nearby you have some help to remember to focus on what you DO want, instead what you don’t want in your life’s experiences.

Everything is energy, and all energy has a vibration. Crystals also have energy and vibration, and their vibration is based on the stone’s color and the manner in which the stone formed in the earth. Each and every stone has a spiritual component to help you further develop your spiritual connection. Likewise, each stone has a mental use that aids in maintaining mental focus and clarity, an emotional use that can help you deal with feelings and unblock underlying challenges, and physical uses that range from supporting the healing of your physical body to helping you fulfill your physical needs such as money and career.

To choose the crystal that best fits your positive thoughts and intentions for the purpose of amplifying your intention, simply look at your collection of crystals (and gemstone jewelry if you have some) as you stay focused on your goal. Get clear on your intention. Which stone or color does your eye naturally gravitate toward? Pick that gemstone and formalize your intention.

As an example, if your intention is to have more financial security, then try using a pyrite cube with a matching affirmation. Use pyrite to help strengthen courage and self-confidence. Such strength is needed to allow yourself to manifest money in your life through your creative efforts. Pyrite often forms in cubes and therefore has a geometrical connection to creating a strong foundation for anything you do.

Repeat this statement often and visualize the outcome.

There are plenty of people with plenty of money who want the goods and/or services that I offer. I’m self-motivated and strong. I am determined to follow through on the next best thing. I am productive. My confidence is rock solid. I focus on my intentions and take positive action to manifest my goals.

Do you believe that you build your reality? Start by recognizing that you do design your reality! Increase your ability through creativity and action for success in all endeavors, including financial success, fertility, creativity, family blessings, happy home, healthy body, and much more. Visualize your dreams as if they have already been realized. Create a strong foundation. Be determined and confident enough to make the necessary steps to build the life of your dreams. Pyrite is a stone of financial abundance. Use this stone with intention when you are trying to improve your financial status. Draw on its gold energy while you take action to increase your monetary wealth.
