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:

• 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

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.

Archangel Gabriel and the Gemstone Guardians: Angel of Inspiration and the Dreamtime pair with the Herkimer Diamond

Archangel Gabriel is one of many angels to turn to for inspiration and clear messages from the Divine. You can decide that you want more guidance to come to you while you sleep during your dream state. Dreams are recognized as ongoing thought processes and some of the world’s most prominent scientists, musicians and inventors have significant dream insight that are responsible for major discoveries and profound musical works. I personally have experienced great understanding and ideas that are revealed to me upon waking. Archangel Gabriel can be your guide in the dream world.

The Herkimer diamond lends a hand in the Dreamtime. It is the number-one tool to use for lucid dreaming, shamanic journeywork, and vision seeking. The Herkimer Diamond is mined in Herkimer, NY, therefore explaining its moniker. Herkimer Diamonds are doubly terminated quartz (silicon dioxide) crystals. Herkimers heighten your consciousness and awareness as if you are turning on a light in a dark room. You can use a Herkimer diamond to ask for assistance from Archangels Gabriel because this little sparkly gem is a good vibrational match.

            With a Herkimer diamond in hand, asyourself, “Am I able to recall my dreams? Do I wake up inspired or knowing ananswer to an unresolved question or issue?” Contemplate the answers. Take thetime before going to sleep to form the intention to remember your dreams. Pausefor a moment to jot down your thoughts and feelings upon waking. Dreams can beyour internal psychologist and spiritual advisor. Dreams are powerful tools forself-healing, personal awareness, and spiritual growth.

On an emotional level, the Herkimer Diamond and Archangel Gabriel will help you to understand why you feel a certain way. Uncovers the little pockets of stored memories that were buried long ago and heal the previously hidden memories. Release them to make room for positive energy and new experiences.

Use this affirmation from Archangel Gabriel along with your Herkimer diamond:

I relax my body, mind, and spirit to meditate regularly. Great ideas are constantly flowing into my mind. It is fulfilling to follow through on creativethoughts and manifest my reality. I take enthusiastic action. I am productive.

Listening to the Messenger: Archangel Gabriel and Gemstones Ammonite, Dolomite, and Scolecite

Archangel Gabriel inspires and guides you to deeper understanding. Through dreams, inspired inner knowing, and true listening of the voice within, you can ‘hear’ Gabriel’s guidance.

Gabriel is a Divine Oracle and through self-development align with this archangel to develop your own oracular skills. Archangel Gabriel is well known as the messenger to announce the birth of the Messiah 200 years before his birth when he ‘appeared to Daniel’. Gabriel is the Angel of the Annunciation.

Gabriel spent around 22 years upon Earth appearing regularly to dictate the Koran to Mohammed. And, other incidences of note are that Gabriel also appeared to Zacharias to let him know of the birth of John the Baptist or John the Precursor. His wife, Elizabeth, was too old to give birth so when Zacharias didn’t believe Gabriel he struck him mute until the baby was born. Gabriel is also known to be the angel that seals the secrets of heaven and prior lives within the child by pressing her fingers to their lips leaving a soft mark that appears as a cleft beneath the nose.

There are many gemstones that can amplify your connection with Archangel Gabriel. A few of them are Ammonite, Dolomite, and Scolecite. The guidance of this archangel strongly points to going within to know, hear, and experience truth and information.

Ammonite’s message is “I know the truth in the center of myself. All the answers lie within. I recall my dreams and use them as tools to help guide me.”

The spiritual uses of ammonite send you into the center of your own consciousness due to the spiraling structure of this fossil. It’s especially useful to use for dream work, meditation, spiral dance, and walking a labyrinth or a medicine wheel. Because of this fossil’s association with snakes or serpents, ammonite has been associated with healing power and oracular abilities.

Dolomite’s focus is “I think outside the box. My ideas are fresh and creative. I easily manifest my artistic thoughts.”

Dolomite improves the meditation experience. Use this stone with the intention of creating new pathways of consciousness by opening up to unexplored avenues for raising your awareness. For example, instead of a sitting meditation, try a moving meditation such as tai chi or a nature walk or explore lucid dreaming and shamanic journeywork to expand your spiritual horizons.

Scolecite, with mindful intention, aligns you with all the angels. Repetitively think these thoughts: “I consciously request and accept the help of angels. My life flows easily with grace. The energy of healing, love, and well-being flows through me. My intuition is intact.”

The spiritual uses of Scolecite include that it amplifies your intention to remember your dreams. This stone opens the portals residing in the crown, third eye, and throat chakras, allowing for the download and processing of Divine inspiration, healing light, and true wisdom. It is especially beneficial for guiding your higher consciousness to be a Divine channel of God’s love and to connect with Archangel Gabriel.

Every day is a good day to call on the assistance of your angels. Remember that you always have an angel at your side. Feel grateful that angels light your path and inspire you. Know that you are able to handle any situation that arises. Stay focused on angelic assistance and appreciate the support available to you from them in all areas of your life.

Allow Archangel Gabriel to inspire and guide you through dreams and inspiration. Believe yourself and know the true voice within.
