A Crystal Recipe for Gridding Your Sacred Space

Setting up a crystal grid is a simple way to harness the magic of the universe, enhance your sacred experience, and connect to spiritual energy. Using crystal grids is one of the most powerful ways to tap into spirit as it combines the energy of your crystals with Sacred Geometry (the language of the Universe).  

Here is a potent-- but super easy-- grid to place around your sacred space or meditation room to bring protection and peace to your area and to amplify your spiritual practice!

First, grab these supplies for your grid. Feel free to use rough or tumbled stones:

  • 1 piece of labradorite
  • 4 pieces of smoky quartz
  • 4 pieces of black tourmaline
  • 8 pieces of selenite

If you don’t have these exact crystals, or if you don’t have them in these quantities, use your intuition to help you find suitable substitutes or to make changes to the grid.

Before placing the stones, they should be cleansed thoroughly with your preferred cleansing method - such as sage, palo santo, moonlight, or singing bowls.

As you place each crystal in the grid, you’ll hold an intention of your choosing clearly in your mind. For example, “This crystal creates a protective energetic boundary.” OR “This crystal helps me slip into a relaxed, meditative state.”


Labradorite is used at the center of the grid to help connect you to spiritual energy. Place your crystal in a central location in your space -- such as atop your altar. Visualize the energy of the Labradorite crystal in the center of your space as a shimmering rainbow pool of energy. Take a deep breath in and feel yourself begin to absorb this shimmering, rainbow energy into your physical body.

Smokey Quartz

Smoky Quartz helps you stay grounded while meditating & promotes intuitive insight. Place one in the center of each wall in your sacred space. Visualize the Smoky Quartz transmuting any negativity and radiating purifying light energy toward yourself and your space until only positive energy remains.  

Black Tourmaline

Black Tourmaline repels negative energy and enhances positivity & creativity. Place one in each corner of your space. See the energy of the Black Tourmaline crystals begin to expand and push this positive energy further and further out into your sacred space until it fills the whole room.


Selenite cleanses the energy of the space and keeps the good vibes flowing, surrounding you with a protective sheath of pure love and light. Place two along each wall-- one on each side of your pieces of smoky quartz. Visualize the selenite sending the energy of your grid into your sacred space until you feel the energy of your crystal grid within you and all around you.

After placing the stones, you’re ready to activate the grid! Do this by energetically linking the crystals together. This can be done with a clear Quartz point or with your finger. Point the crystal or your finger toward the first crystal in the grid, then move around the room “drawing” energetic connections between each stone. In this way, you connect the crystals energetically so that they are better able to act as one harmonious grid, rather than many individual stones.
