A Crystal Grid Recipe for Wellness
Crystal grids are an amazing and effective way to work with crystal energy. Plus, they’re absolutely stunning to look at! You can use grids to create positive energy flows, for protection and to enhance your manifestation practice. You can even create a crystal grid for wellness and health, which is what you’ll learn to create in today’s blog and podcast!
This grid recipe for wellness is from my book, Crystals for Energy Healing, and can be used to energetically support your health and wellness.
Creating Your Crystal Grid for Wellness
Begin by gathering your supplies and making sure that all of your crystals have been cleansed. Create an intention statement for your grid such as, “My physical body is healthy and well.” Your intention may be general if you’d just like to focus on overall physical health. You may also get as specific as you like to your idea of wellness when crafting your intention statement.
Your Crystal Grid for Wellness Supplies:
One Emerald stone (or a green stone connected with wellness like Green Aventurine, Nephrite Jade, or Bloodstone).
Four Ruby stones (or any combination of red stones connected with vitality like Carnelian, Red Jasper, or Red Aventurine).
Four Red Pyrope Garnet stones (or any combination of grounding stones like Black Tourmaline, Smoky Quartz, or Petrified Wood).
Eight Clear Quartz crystal points (or tumbled stones will do in a pinch).
One small, square, piece of red paper or cloth (for vitality and energizing) - optional.
One small, square, piece of green paper or cloth (for general wellness and healing) - optional.
Build Your Crystal Grid for Wellness
Place your red paper or cloth (if you’re using one) in the area where you will set up your grid. Place your green cloth (if you’re using one) on top of the red cloth, but turn it so that only the four corners of the red cloth show beneath the green square.
Set the Emerald crystal (or a green stone if you’re making a substitution) in the center of the grid. This represents physical healing and wellness. Be sure to state your intention, aloud or to yourself, when placing this stone. Doing this will anchor your intention into the grid.
Next, place the four Ruby crystals (for vitality), on top of the corners of the red cloth. Do this in a square shape, around your central stone.
Then, place the four Red Pyrope Garnet crystals in a square shape between the Ruby stones (one in each corner of the green cloth). This represents grounding and stability.
Finally, place the eight clear Quartz crystal points, one between the Emerald stone and each of the eight red stones, with the points facing in toward the Emerald. These will act to amplify your intention.
Activating Your Crystal Grid
After all of your crystals have been placed, you’ll need to activate your crystal grid. Activation is the process of connecting the energy of the stones within your grid and unifying them to work together toward a common purpose. This process enhances the energy of the stones so that the energy of the grid becomes greater than the sum of its individual crystal parts. For step by step instructions on how to activate your grid, check out my article How to Create and Use a Crystal Grid Step-by-Step here.
Leave this grid in place for as long as you feel you need the healing energy, but be sure to update your intention statement as needed if your health situation changes.

A Distance Healing Crystal Layout for Physical Wellbeing
Keeping the energy body healthy and in balance is equally as important as maintaining your physical health. A healthy diet, regular exercise, and getting enough sleep can go a long way toward good health. However, to round things out, you should consider incorporating crystal healing layouts for energetic support as well.
Performing a layout for yourself can be a bit challenging. I’m talking reaching far, struggling with flexibility, and having all your crystals roll away when you try to place the next ones. Don’t fret! You can still make even a complicated crystal layout work.
Did you know you can apply the principles of distance healing to a layout for yourself?
You just need a representation of you -- this could be a photograph or your name written on a piece of paper. Plus, a “stand-in” for your body, like a distance healing board or a drawing of the human body.
You can place your crystal layout for physical wellbeing on this stand-in and intend to send healing to yourself. Or, you can use this same method for sending healing distantly to friends, family, or clients. It's kind of like working with a crystal grid for healing, but a little different.

The following crystal layout for physical wellbeing helps to draw energy into the body and keeps your energy channels open, giving you an energy boost and helping to keep you from feeling depleted.
Watch my quick video walkthrough now:
Begin by placing a black, brown, or red grounding crystal between and just below your feet. This is the area of your Earth Star Chakra, a minor chakra that helps maintain the grounding cord between your physical and energetic bodies. Placing a stone like Black Tourmaline, Red Garnet, Smoky Quartz, Black Onyx, or Red Jasper in this location helps to keep you grounded and connected to your body while you’re within the crystal layout. It also helps you readily absorb the energy from the other stones in the layout. This is because it opens up your energy channels, allowing the crystal energy to flow through you unimpeded.
Next, place a grounding stone next to each hip on either side of your body. Petrified Wood, Bronzite, Smoky Quartz, Dravite Tourmaline, or Septarian Nodule are perfect for this. Place the stones just below your hip bones where your legs attach to the main part of your body. These two crystals work to anchor your energy body during the session so that the energy flows easily integrated between the physical body and the aura.
The upside-down triangle that’s created between the grounding crystal below your feet and the two stones near your hips helps to direct and expand grounding energy from the earth up into your body.
Energetically Support Your Physical Body:
To create a positive shift in your physical body and call in balance and wellbeing, place a dark green stone above each of your shoulders. Stones like Malachite, Emerald, Green Aventurine, Buddstone, or Bloodstone all work well for this. When connected with the stones near the hips, these crystals help to create a long, rectangular shape around the torso. This surrounds it in healing energy, which helps you anchor into yourself. The deep green color of these stones is associated with healing. It will help to correct any energetic imbalances within your field.
If you’re dealing with discomfort from stress, like headaches, upset stomach, muscle tension, and loss of appetite, you can energetically support yourself by placing a yellow stone over the stomach.
Keep Yourself Clear:
Finally, place a clear or white crystal, like Selenite, Scolecite,
Imbolc & the Wheel of the Year
One way that I like to connect with the seasons and cycles of the earth is by tuning into The Wheel of the Year. As we approach Imbolc (here in the Northern Hemisphere), I’m reminded of all that the Wheel of the Year represents: the cycles of light and dark, and of the constant flow and unending cycle of all things from birth, growth, and death to rebirth.
The Wheel of the Year can help you tune into natural cycles (similar to the Lunar Phases - but on an annual scale rather than just monthly) and helps you internalize these outward changes in nature as reflections of the growth and evolution you experience in your own life. Living in harmony with the seasons and the ebb and flow of nature helps you to lead a more soulful life and to cultivate a deeper understanding of yourself on a soul level. The Wheel of the Year helps you recognize who you are and your role in the world around you.

So what is the Wheel of the Year?
Separated into 8 main holidays, the Wheel of the Year is a representation of seasonal cycles that focuses on the 4 Solar Holidays of the year (also known as the quarter days). This stems from the Anglo-Saxon cultural observations of the solstices and equinoxes, with the addition of the 4 Gaelic, agrarian, seasonal celebrations (the mid-points between the solar holidays known as the lunar cross-quarter days or fire festivals).
An Introduction to Imbolc:
February 1st is Imbolc (here in the Northern Hemisphere), the first of the cross-quarter days, which marks the beginning of spring (the mid-point between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox). It’s origins are connected to the lambing season, or calving period when animals would begin giving milk, and the beginning of spring sowing of the ancient Celts.
Though Imbolc is most widely celebrated on February 1st, it may also be celebrated on the true midpoint between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox (or on the evening of the Full Moon nearest this date - or on the evening of the Full Moon in Aquarius...though some dispute this and say it’s on the New Moon in Aquarius). You may also choose to adjust the date of your Imbolc celebration to coincide with your exact location, by celebrating when the first spring flowers (like Snowdrops, Crocuses, Daffodils, Dandelions, or Primroses) emerge and bloom.
