I am often asked about using crystals for energetic protection. Creating a crystal grid is a simple way to work with crystal energy for protection.

Protecting Your Home with Crystal grid

In this post, I’m sharing a simple method for energetically protecting your home with crystal grid energy. This crystal grid recipe uses only 2 types of stones. Even better, they can be used effectively in any dwelling.

To create an initial energetic shield to protect your home, place Black Tourmaline in each exterior corner. You can then place Selenite along each of the walls and any exterior doorways or windows. This will energetically connect the Tourmaline stones. The Tourmaline acts to set an energetic protective boundary while the Selenite aids in cleansing and purification.

My ideal grid for protecting your home with crystal grid energy:

The diagram of the home below shows my ideal set up. This setup uses 12 pieces of Black Tourmaline, one in each exterior corner of the home. It also uses 14 pieces of Selenite (at least one on each exterior wall where there is no window PLUS one over each exterior door and each window).

However, if this many stones is not within your budget, or if there would be safety concerns over placing the stones in children’s rooms, etc. you can absolutely reduce the total number of stones. Do this by placing the Tourmalines in just the outermost corners of the home. This can be reduced to only 6 pieces.

Additionally, by placing just one piece of Selenite per exterior wall (but still making sure to place one above each exterior window or door), the number of pieces of Selenite used is reduced to only 7 pieces. The resulting grid would still be very effective for most situations. Also, it would only be a fraction of the cost. This makes energetic home protection a bit easier on your pocketbook, which is always a bonus!

Setting Up Your Grid for Energetic Protection:

Before placing the stones, they should be cleansed. As you place each crystal in the grid, hold your intention clearly in your mind. This may be something like, “This crystal adds to the energy of my grid and helps to creates a protective energetic boundary around my home.” OR “This crystal energetically protects me and my family in our home.”

Protecting your home with crystal gridAfter placing the stones, it is recommended that you “activate” the grid.

Activating your grid means to energetically link the crystals together. Since this is a large scale grid, the activation process is a bit different than it would be for a small, tabletop crystal grid.

To activate your grid, you’ll need a Crystal Laser Wand (a single-terminated clear Quartz point) or an additional piece of Selenite. Alternatively, you can even just activate your grid with your finger. Point the crystal or your finger toward the first crystal in the grid. Some people like to begin with the crystal in the northernmost position, but just do what feels most natural. Move around your home from one stone to the next in a clockwise direction while “drawing” energetic connections between each stone.

In this way, you connect the crystals energetically. This means that they are better able to act as one harmonious grid, rather than many individual stones. After the grid has been activated by completing the energetic circuit between the crystals, remember to cleanse the stones fairly often and revisit the intention you’ve set for the grid to be sure it’s still relevant.

Additional crystal properties you may wish to add to the energy of your grid:


(Also known as Gypsum or as Satin Spar). Use for purification, to cleanse the energy of a space, to promote a connection with your spirituality, to aid in personal growth, to clear the mind, and to promote peace and harmony.

(Also known as Schorl or as Aphrizite). Use for protection against negative energy, for grounding, to banish unwanted energy, to enhance positive thinking and creativity, and for cleansing the energy body.

    Can I ask if you have a two story house would It be enough to just grid the ground floor layout or would I need to do the second floor also?

    Thanks in advance ?

    Thank you so much for this post! Should I place crystals only on the inside perimeter or outside perimeter of my house? I have a two story house, so let me know if it would be best to create a similar grid on the second level as well. Also, do all the crystals need to be removed for cleansing?

    1. Jolie Love and Light Support on March 9, 2021 at 6:09 pm

      Glad you enjoyed it! We typically do inside, and just on the first floor. And they don’t necessarily need to be removed but it is good to cleanse them periodically, when possible. <3 Follow your intuition there. 🙂

    Hi could i use other stones such as ckear quartz and obsidian? These are available on my property so i want to incorporate what is here. Thanks

    1. Ashley Love and Light Support on April 23, 2021 at 3:44 pm

      Absolutely! Those are great options 🙂 Crystal Blessings!

    Great article! Do you just lay the crystals on the ground in a corner of your home and along the walls? How do you keep pets and small people from them?

    1. Love and Light Support on May 25, 2021 at 5:42 pm

      Yes! Really you can place them with intention wherever it’s convenient! Or if there are no convenient locations in the home, you can make a grid with a layout shaped similarly to your home and place the crystals there as well. <3 🙂

    How often do you recommend cleansing your crystal and how?

  7. Shannon on September 12, 2021 at 9:47 pm

    If you have walls that are floor to ceiling windows i.e. no way to place a crystal on top/near top, is it okay to place the selenite at the bottom instead, or is a replicate grid better? And thank you kindly in advance for your support in this — makes it all a little easier for sure!

      Hi, I am a bit confused, in the podcast and video you say we must put the crystals on the exterior corners of the house, but when you answered Elle you say inside. May you please clarify this for me. Thank you very much
