Hi Guys, It’s Marco, I know many of you have enjoyed my Facebook Lives about Crystals, so I decided to go into more details about how to use crystals. Many people wonder why I got into using crystals and how I use them.
Long story short, I use the crystals for their metaphysical healing properties. (that's just a fancy way of saying healing energy) Each crystal has its own healing property. If you are drawn to a specific crystal, then that means it has something you need at that point in time. Wearing crystals or having them in your home can have a variety of benefits. They can boost your energy, cleanse your space, attract wealth, enhance intuition, etc. The possibilities and benefits are endless with crystals. Now you can’t just place a crystal down and expect it to be magic. (How cool would that be through…) A crystal needs to be cleaned and programed before it is used. ( I did a Facebook Live on this a while back, in case you missed it you can find the live here)
If you have stopped into our store before, you may have noticed as soon as you walk in you feel calm and happy. There's a reason for that, Crystals! (Oh and if you are local and haven’t been to the store, what are you waiting for?) Anyway, I grid the crystals in the store. Gridding simply means placing the stones in a certain way to create an energy to protect the space.
There are a variety of types of grids for both your home and yourself. The simplest grid to make is to place a crystal in each corner. By doing that, there will be an energy grid across the entire room. You will need to join the crystals with a wand or a long point crystal.
When you create a grid, you can choose the stones based on your intentions. We have a variety of raw stones in the store that are perfect for gridding. For instance if I wanted to make a simple gird, I would place an Amethyst in one corner for blocking geopathic stress and negative environmental energies. In the next corner I would place a citrine which absorbs, transmutes, dissipates and grounds negative energy, which makes it protective for any environment. Citrine is also a good stone to place in the wealth corner of your home. In the third corner I would place Kyanite, another stone that doesn’t need cleansing and does not hold onto negativity. In the final corner I would place Tourmaline which much like the others cleanse, purifies and transforms dense energies into a lighter vibration.
Another simple grid is Triangulation, (basically this grid forms a triangle) this type of gridding works to neutralize negative energy and bring positive energy. To achieve this grid place one crystal in the middle of one wall and two others on the opposite wall at an equal angle if you can. Again you can choose which crystals you want based on your intentions.
Gridding is simple way to begin using crystals. There are many other ways to use crystals for healing. Stay tuned to learn more grinding patterns and new ways to use crystals.
