Our aura is in a constant state of fluctuation as a result of the things that detrimentally impact our chakras and overall energy field. Chakras can easily become over or under active, and we can shift from a higher to a lower frequency rather quickly. The longer we go without addressing these energy shifts, the more we are impacted and the longer it takes to correct these energy imbalances. Lucky for us we have energy allies, crystals, that can help us to cleanse, clear and shift our energy to a higher amplitude and balanced force. Because of their unique crystalline structure, crystals are able to alter energy sources around them.
Interestingly, the body is made of molecular liquid crystalline structures, and these structures transmit information between tissues and molecules like a computer chip. This internal crystalline structure is believed to house the Meridians, and connects us to and helps us navigate our environment. So why does that matter? It matters because it means that we are able to influence the crystalline structure in our body in accordance with the unique crystalline structures of various crystals!
There are a ton of different ways that we can work with crystals to influence our crystalline core, and one of my favorite is to use crystal grid body layouts! A crystal grid is the arrangement of crystals and stones into a specific pattern for the purpose of intention setting and manifestation of that intention. Placing a crystal grid over or around your body during meditation is a fantastic way to shift not only your focus, but the entirety of your energy field. You’ll want to place the crystals on or around the body for a minimum of 20 minutes unless otherwise noted. The frequency of using a body layout crystal grid depends on the type of grid being used, its potency and individual needs. There is no one size fits all.
Check out 3 of my favorite crystal grid body layouts.
Emotional Support Crystal Grid Body Layout
This body crystal grid layout is great for opening up and strengthening the heart center; calming the emotional body during times of anxiety, stress, emotional turmoil and grief; and radiating a smoothing frequency of wholeness and contentment.
Recommended crystals: Rose Quartz, Prasiolite, Rubellite, Rhodonite, Rhodochrosite, Emerald, Kunzite, Green Aventurine, Lepidolite, Tourmaline (green, pink, watermelon), Bloodstone
Extras: Create a Phi Spiral over heart for opening the Heart Chakra or emanating from and around the body in a large spiral. Pairs well with Rose Quartz Armor crystal elixir and Emotional Support Sacred Bath.
Merkabah Crystal Grid Body Layout
This body crystal grid layout is designed according to Sacred Geometry, and is great for merging the aspects of the spirit and physical self, the microcosm with the macrocosm, and strengthening the aura as a whole. This crystal grid is particularly useful for those wishing to move into alignment with their life path purpose and forwards on their spiritual journey.
Recommended crystals: Clear Quartz, Selenite, Herkimer Diamond, Danburite, Apophyllite, Clear Calcite, Amethyst paired with equal number of grounding stones.
Extras: Pairs well with the Divine Connection Sacred Bath.
Grounding Crystal Grid Body Layout
This crystal grid body layout is fantastic for grounding, particularly as it relates to needing to be present, overcome anxiety and fear, having a feeling of solid foundation and support from the Universe, and strengthening the Root Chakra The Root Chakra tends to be the weakest chakra for most people.

Extras: Lay on a black or dark brown cloth the full length of the body, or outside in the grass, dirt, or sand. Place a fist to baseball sized chunk of Hematite or Black Tourmaline between and slightly below the feet. To be used for no more than 20 minutes at a time, and take care not to fall asleep. For those working on their grounding practices and Root strengthening, I do not recommend using more than once a day and do not pair with the Grounding and Detox Sacred Bath; it’s better to supplement with other less intensive forms of grounding/grounding crystal practices.
Creating your own Custom Crystal Grid
Interested in creating your own custom crystal grid body layout? With a little bit of thoughtful planning, you can easily craft a grid that is right for you and your unique needs. Once you answer these three questions, then it’s just a matter of placing the crystals in a pattern formation that you feel drawn to create.
What are you looking to achieve with the grid?
What layers of the aura, chakras, meridians, etc are associated with this desired outcome, and where are they located in and/or around the physical body?
What crystals and stones have properties associated with your desired outcome? Check crystal books, select by color association, intuition or a pendulum.
A Few Things to Consider:
The size of the crystals you use is directly proportionate to the impact that the crystal will have on the crystalline structure within your body. I recommend that stones be at least the size of a quarter to make an impact.
Be mindful of crystal toxicity, particularly for the crystals and stones that will be in direct contact with your body.
You can enhance the effects of the crystals by performing breathwork before, during and after working with the body layouts. Checkout Breathwork: the Art of Spiritual Breathing
I strongly recommend listening to either nature sounds or 432Hz meditation music while being completely relaxed and soaking up the crystal grid vibes.
It may take several treatments to see results.
Consider following up a crystal grid body layout meditation with having a crystal infused cup of herbal tea to help integrate the energy work you have performed.
