Crystal Gridding Board
Our gridding boards are now available for individual purchase. The Seed of Life is taken from the Flower of Life, and I love the balancing energy this has. While the name “Seed of Life” was coined in the 1980’s, this shape dates back much further and shows up in every major religion and has been documented in countless historical sites. It highlights and features the connectedness between opposing forces. In this pattern, six circles interlock and surround a seventh center circle, producing an effect that creates “petals” within the pattern. The seven circles connect to and mirror the seven chakras. In my gridding board, I use this pattern with a triangle centered inside of the seventh circle. This board is made from wood and as such possesses a living energy. You can grid on any surface - a mirror, a cloth, the ground- this is just what I like using.
Crystal gridding is an invaluable part of my practice. I’ll always provide education around stones, but sincerely knowing them and their synergy comes from taking time with them. Gridding is a practice of setting out stones in a pattern to channel their energy with specific intentions set for use. It truly promotes understanding of your rocks as you feel their energy with neighboring stones. Crystalline structure contains a multitude of patterns of Sacred Geometry, and when we arrange them in sacred patterns we are able to harness their energy on a different level.
First, cleanse your stones and space, and be specific about as you set an intention. This intention, along with Sacred Geometry, is going to inform grid shape. There are endless geometric possibilities here, but I’m going to give you a run down of the basics and a few of my favorite patterns. Circles are for wholeness, protection, and sense of Self. If you're focusing on expansion and growth, play with more of a spiral shape. Explore using squares for setting boundaries, grounding, and receiving guidance from spirit guides. Triangles are more for a harmonious, balanced energy.
Start with an anchor stone that will be the center of your grid; this stone typically has a high energy and properties that align with your intention. Then, compatible surrounding stones are selected to work in harmony alongside your anchor. Beyond that I use secondary, amplification stones, such as quartz. You may also include an object of importance that is not a stone - a significant piece of jewelry, a gift, an heirloom, etc. As you let your intuition guide your placement, speak your intention to the Universe. Then, trace the lines of the grid for activation.
