Most often when discussing crystals for protection, what comes to mind is carrying crystals with us or wearing them as jewelry. But did you know that you can also use a crystal grid recipe for protection?
Crystal grids for protection are often linked to a specific location (like your home). However, they can also be used for protection of yourself and your loved ones.
The following crystal grid recipe creates a protective space for you and your loved ones. It forms an energetic shield around you so that you’ll be protected within its presence as well as when leaving the space.
- One Black Tourmaline stone
- Six Peridot stones
- Six Labradorite stones
- One seed of life grid base (you can draw this yourself, print it out, or purchase a pre-made grid template)
Gather your supplies and make sure that your crystals have been cleansed. Create an intention statement for your grid such as, “I am safe and protected. I am shielded from negative influences both physical and energetic.”
Your protective affirmation may be general if you’d just like to focus on overall protection. However, you may also get as specific as you like to your situation when crafting your intention statement. For example, you can choose to include other people, places, or situations in your request for protection.
Place the Black Tourmaline crystal, representing focused protection, in the center of the Seed of Life grid base. State your intention, either aloud or silently to yourself, when placing each of your stones.
Next, place the six peridot crystals, known for disintegrating and dissolving negative energy from your aura and environment, on the Seed of Life base, around your central stone. These should be placed in the center of each of the outer circles of the Seed of Life.
Finally, place the six Labradorite crystals, used for energetic shielding, at the point where two of the outer circles cross, on the outside edge of the grid base.
Leave this grid in place for as long as you feel you need the protective energy. Be sure to update your intention statement as needed if your situation changes. You’ll also want to cleanse the crystals in this grid at least once or twice per month since they’re doing some heavy-duty protective work.
