Crystal Grids

Have you ever heard of a crystal grid before? A crystal grid is an arrangement of crystals on a grid following a geometry pattern and when crystals are placed in a certain arrangement the energies become even more powerful as the pattern enhances the energy flow. Crystal grids can be used to manifest something you need, set intentions, healing and also be used to during a meditation. The crystal grids themselves can have lots of different geometry patterns on them but one of the most popular patterns is called the “Flower of Life”. The flower of life represents the cycle of creation – it shows how all life came from one source, which is the circle in the middle of the grid.

Setting Up Your Crystal Grid:

So first of all: what is the purpose of your grid? You can set your grid up to fulfil any intention, so think clearly on what you want to achieve. The combination of crystals and sacred geometry greatly strengthens your intention and allows you to manifest much more quickly – so ensure you have your intention set in your mind when you are creating your grid.

The first thing you need is a focus stone that links directly to your intention. Let’s say we are setting up a grid to attract love into your life – you would choose your centre stone thats aligned with that purpose. Let’s use Rose Quartz as our centre stone as its aligned with the heart chakra and opens us up to loving energies. You would place this down in the centre of the grid! Then you can choose another 6 to 12 crystals aligned with the same purpose – this could be amethyst for stress and anxiety, or red aventurine which is for love as well. They can all be of the same crystal or different – do what ever feels right for you! You are also going to need Quartz points as well – quartz is a master healer and amplifier and will direct the energy to flow in the direction it faces.

Place your other chosen crystals around your centre stone, leaving a gap between each one. Think about the geometry pattern you’ve gone with when you place the crystals – are there specific points in the pattern? Once you’ve done this, you can place your quartz points around the outside of the centre stone – these act as stepping stones and help connect each crystal to one another. Remember that the point directs the energy so if you place the points towards the Rose Quartz, it will send the energy into it. If you place the points facing away from the Rose Quartz, the energy will flow out from it. The idea is that the energy flows through each crystal, amplifying your intentions and goals.

Activating Your Crystal Grid:

So now you have your grid set up, you’ll want to cleanse and charge the crystals and the grid. You can use another quartz point to do this or you can just use your hand – its all about the intention! Move your hand or point and go counter clockwise above the grid, and ask that “All and any previous energy is removed from the crystals and grid”. Once you feel you have cleansed it, you now need to charge your grid. This time, go clockwise above the grid with your hand or point and ask that the healing properties of the crystals influence the space for your highest good. You can now set your final intention – for our purpose we can say “I am loved and I radiate a loving energy to myself and people around me”.

You can leave your grid intact for as long as you feel you need to. You can change it whenever you want – just make sure you follow the same steps. Also think about where you want to keep it – perhaps under your bed or on your altar? Have fun with your crystal grid and do what feels right for you!

We sell crystal grid books and starter packs which includes your small quartz points and one large Quartz point! Our crystal sets are also great for forming your crystal grid.

Self Love

What is self love? Self love is about taking responsibility to care for your wellbeing. I am going to give you some advice and tips on how you can implement this into your life! So grab a drink and get comfortable!

Learning to love yourself can be really hard sometimes because you go face to face with your self beliefs. It’s important to be patient and give yourself the time in your life to understand yourself. Your beliefs about yourself can look like this “I don’t love myself” “nobody loves me” “I’m not good enough”. Once you become aware of these thoughts you can start to change them, it’s important to find out where do they come from? Why do you have these beliefs? Allow yourself to feel the emotions that arise when you think of these beliefs, how does it make you feel? Remember that these types of beliefs are not true but the more you tell yourself they are the more deeply rooted they become.

Let’s do a little exercise, write down your beliefs on a piece of paper, next to each negative belief you have about yourself replace it with a positive affirmation. So your belief may be “I am not good enough” replace it with “I am good enough” “Nobody loves me” replaced with “I am loved” and so on. Now take these positive affirmations and keep them safe, when you are cleaning the house or making dinner, going for a walk basically whenever you can, keep repeating your affirmations to your self, you will start to believe they are true and eventually they will become a core belief.

Sometimes we entertain negative people in our lives and this has an effect on us, it is important to set healthy boundaries in your life, and learning that it is ok to say no. If you feel you have negative people around you that drain your energy a good tip is to ask Archangel Michael to cut any invisible ties to anyone thats not serving your highest purpose or your not serving theirs, once you have done this go about your day and see what happens! It is important to protect yourself spiritually, every night call all your energy back to you from any person, place or situation and let go in your mind of anything that is not serving your highest good. You can do this by placing your feet firmly on the ground and saying “I declare my body grounded to the earth right now and so it is” Imagine a magnet in your body and say “I call all of my energy back to me from any place, person or situation right now and so it is” and imagine the magnet drawing all of your energy back to you. Now say “I send back any energy that is not serving me back to where it came from” and imagine that energy leaving you. Now imagine a white light surrounding your aura and body and say “this is my energy shield and nothing shall have access to my energy without my permission”

Take at least 20 minute’s out of your day to care for yourself, this can be having a relaxing bath, going for a walk, meditating or reading a book. Invest in putting yourself first and loving yourself, finding a passion/hobby, you will essentially put out this loving, caring passionate energy that will put you in alignment with your authentic self, your authentic self is who you truly are without the influence of other people, it is an honest representation of who you are and when you are in alignment with this you will start to see miracles happen around you! Trust yourself, love yourself and be patient with yourself. It is ok to have bad days the light cannot exist without darkness, its yin yang energy. We cannot appreciate the good days without learning from the bad days. We are always evolving and learning!

A book I would recommend is “You can heal your life” by Louise Hay, you can order this on the website, in store or over the phone!

Have an amazing day and remember how great and beautiful you are!

Mercury Retrograde 2022

I can see the collectives eyes rolling already, when you realise Mercury is going retrograde again we start blaming our problems on the transit, BUT did you know you can actually use this energy to benefit your life? Its not all doom and gloom! Its actually a great time for reflecting and adjusting!

Mercury will go retrograde on the 10th May and last till the 3rd of June, but the shadow phase will start 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after, bringing us to the 17th June. During the shadow phase we will feel the effects of the transit the strongest, this is because before and after the transit Mercury will be stationed, meaning energy is still and stagnant. Before it will be a time to prepare and after will be a time to reflect and process the energy shift. Mercury will be going retrograde in its home sign Gemini, and Mercury is the planet of communication. Conversation’s may be a bit confusing, it will be wise to avoid conversations that aren’t really going anywhere, but do keep in mind to be considerate. Try to actually listen to people and think about how you are going to respond to them.

There may be tower moments during this period, when the little switch is turned on inside you and you think “aha”. Remember we are always learning things about ourselves and life. Become aware of these moments and figure out why has it happened what was triggered? Start a journal and write things down so you can always reflect back on it, there will be lessons to be learned and you can only learn them when you are aware of them!

If you feel like an air head, that’s because Mercury is retrograde in an air sign! It is a good time to meditate to become aware of your thoughts, centre and ground yourself and again journal them! Journaling is a great tool to get your thoughts onto paper so you can muddle through them more clearly, ask yourself “where are these thoughts coming from?” “what emotions do these thoughts bring up for me?” When you ask yourself questions like this it is a good way of becoming more self aware, and remember if thoughts are worrying you or giving you anxiety ask yourself “can I control this situation?” If you can’t then try to let go of the thought, and if you can control the situation ask yourself, “Is it as bad is what my head is telling me?” “how can I put a positive perspective on this thought?”

Finally, although the energies can be intense and strong during Mercury retrograde and can make you feel exhausted because things may not be going the way you expected them to, be kind to yourself. The planet will go direct again its just a phase and it will pass. Use this transit as an opportunity to learn about yourself and reflect on what needs to be adjusted in your life!

Sending lots of love and light your way!
