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.”
