When I have a project that will extend over time, sometimes, I will use a crystal grid – just if I feel like it. I don’t need the grid and I am not invoking any sort of assistance from the stones’ abilities rather they just store my intention so it continues resonating while I’m not attending to it. Maybe they do help conduct my internal mood. I always use these particular stones (see below) for this purpose and that’s all I use these particular stones for. I never clean these stones but you can if you want; trust your intuition in this matter.
Here’s a pix of the setup I use for this. It works as well as I can intend the process, but it does work. I don’t do any tricks to the stones that one may read about at the sites of crystal resellers. I simple extend my intention through my hand onto the grid and I also extend the intension. From practicing QiGong projecting energy is familiar to me.
I like to place a crystal point at the center of a 4×4 grid of citrine and aventurine stones. It doesn’t have to be this elaborate or this size collection of stones. Remember the power comes from you. It can be a 3×3, doesn’t necessarily need a point, or try some point stone other then crystal quartz. It’s also a matter of creative choice.
Finally this isn’t an encouragement for the reader to get into crystals. I’m just mentioning what can be in one’s toolkit. There may be some element of a ritual process that helps one focus one’s intention. It’s may also be just something one enjoys.
Maybe try it after you know you can manifest.
