What crystals and grid bring about financial stability and gain?

Answer: There are many ways to build a grid for financial stability and to build one for financial gain. The options for the grid design, grid visuals, affirmations, focus stone, way stones, spirits stones, and desire stones are extensive.

A lot depends on personal preference. Just as there are many ways to make money, so are there many ways to manifest it with crystals and grids.

We teach a course, the Basic Crystal Grid Course, which is provided free to all members of the Crystal Inner Circle. You can join for a month for $1.95 and during that month, take the course. In it, you will learn how to design a grid for a particular need.

Basically what we have found is that crystals of a golden color work well and grids that use such stones as Citrine and Amber as the Desire Stones seem to be effective for many users.

What kind of crystal grid shape and crystals would you need to manifest prosperity and abundance in happiness, health, deepening a relationship, and wealth?

Answer: That question has a lot of questions buried in it. As mentioned in the previous question, we highly recommend the Basic Crystal Grid Course which all members of the Crystal Inner Circle can access for free.

Generally the grid shape for manifesting prosperity and abundance is the Seed of Life, and the stones that are Dark Green such as Malachite are used. They are particularly effective when the moon is transiting the the11th, 13th, 15th, and 19th Mansions of the Moon. You can learn more about the power of the Moon’s travels in the Zodiac in the Crystal Astrology Course available at no cost to members of the Crystal Inner Circle. You can also chart the moon’s travels easily with the Daily Crystal Horoscope Kit.

A Happiness grid is usually made using the Circle. It is sort of a “what goes around comes around” approach. We find a yellow Citrine works well for a Focus Stone as that is a happy color energy coming into the grid. The Way Stones depend on how you are seeking happiness. Perhaps it is through learning a new skill or trade. You might use the olive colored Peridot for that energy. Finally, we almost always use a bright orange crystal as that is the color energy of true happiness. Orange Calcite is a favorite.

Grids for good health are usually made from the Flower of Life, a very traditional design. We use Clear Quartz crystals to gather all the energy we can for the grid. We usually use a Builder crystal from the Carbonate class of minerals such as Stichtite for a Way Stones to build up strength and immunity to disease. Our Desire Stones are often the green stones of nurturing energy such as MalachiteGreen Aventurine, or Seraphinite.

Grids for relationships are often built on the Vesica Pisces the traditional symbol of love and bonding. The Focus stones are usually polished Amethyst crystals as we see relationships having a spiritual aspect. The Way Stones are almost always blue stones to bring the power of trust and respect to the grids and the relationship. Trust is a powerful foundation for all relationships. Finally, we often use Rose Quartz as the Desire Stone. It is the traditional stone of love.

Our grids for wealth are often built on the square design to give them a solid foundation. We use polished Citrine points for the Focus Stones to bring in the Universal Life Force energy of financial power. We use a variety of Way Stones, depending on a person’s method of gaining wealth. Perhaps you seek it by a new job opportunity or a new career. We would use Way Stones of Olive color like Peridot. For the Desire Stones usually, a golden colored stone such as Citrine or Amber is often used

The Basic Crystal Grid Courses and the Crystal Grid Master Course can teach you how to make these grids and more. The source for the courses and these answers is my book, Crystal Grids: How to Combine and Focus Crystal Energies to Enhance Your Life, available in book stores and online.

I read from one of your articles about Angelite balancing the thyroid. I taped it to my throat area and went to bed. The following morning I awoke with a migraine which I was able to soothe and manage without needing to be in bed all day. The next night I wore the crystal in my sock on my right foot. I awoke the following morning with another migraine only on the right side which kept me in bed for 24 hours. I’m thinking this is not a coincidence, but somewhat gun-shy to test it a third time. I have carried the stone with me before without noticing any bad reactions. Can you shed any light on why this may happen?

Answer: The reaction to a crystal can often change when the balance of energy in the crystal gets out of adjustment. Crystals can pick up negative energy and over time can become saturated with it.

I suggest you cleanse the Angelite. There are many ways to do so, and they are all explained in detail in our Preparing Crystals eBook. It is not expensive and has a wealth of knowledge for you on preparing crystals for use.

The section on using Air energy is recommended. In this section, the book explains that you can clear a lot of negative energy using the West Wind. Place the crystals downwind of a flower outdoors when the wind is from the west. Leave it there for a few hours. The wind energy and plant energy of the flower blossom with cleanse the crystals of any negative energy. Once you have done that, you should find the crystal is back to its old self.

For fame and wealth, from which crystal can I get support? And which is the best supportive crystal for astral travel?

Answer: The best crystals to use for wealth include Pyrite, Tigers Eye, Citrine, and any green/earth energy crystals. We strongly suggest building a Feng Shui Wealth Bowl.

We suggest using Danburite for astral travel. Here is our approach.

Which crystal(s) is/are the best when working with Hecate?

Answer: Hecate, Thracian Goddess of Wisdom, Crossroads, and Ghosts. We suggest working with JetBlack Tourmaline, or Black Onyx. You can read more about Hecate in our guide.

What crystals are helpful when trying to stop an active addiction, in my case, specifically to opiates?

AnswerLabradorite – imparts resolve, eases transition and change, reduce cravings of addictions.

Hematite – brings willpower and focus on overcoming addiction.

Amethyst –  create inner calm and balance and reduce the tendency to overindulge and even abstain. It also detoxifies the body and alleviates withdrawal symptoms.

How do you discover new crystals almost every year?

Answer: We personally do not discover the crystals. Our reliable vendors are either mine owners or personally rent mines. They come across new crystals and introduce them to us.

What crystals are good to use for depression? Are there any specific angels or guides to also call upon for help?

Answer: There are a few angels you can call upon for assistance. Haziel (Haze) is the guardian angel of optimism that dispels the darkness of worry. It’s recommended to use light blue crystals such as Angelite. Aladiah (Aladin) is the guardian angel of peace and joy. Clear crystals like Clear Quartz are recommended. Finally, Angel Jeremiel heals emotions and uses violet crystals such as Fluorite.

The best crystals for depression include CarnelianLepidoliteBlack TourmalineLapis Lazuli, and Smoky Quartz.

What crystals can I use to connect with Angels?

Answer: The answer to this question depends on which desires you are after. Check out our angel and guardian guide to find which crystal works best for each angel.

What is my stone if I’m a Sagittarius?

Answer: The traditional stone for a Sagittarius is Topaz. However, there are several stones that can also represent Sagittarius. They are Turquoise, Lapis Lazuli, Amethyst. Sodalite, and Obsidian. Our Sagittarius Crystal Kit comes with several crystals that connect with Sagittarians.

What is the meaning of a yellow Citrine heart?

AnswerCitrine is a premier stone of manifestation, imagination, and personal will. Its frequency awakens creativity and imagination and sustains the process of transforming dreams and wishes into tangible form. With its pure yellow energy, Citrine encourages fullness of life, fresh beginnings, and new pursuits. Citrine assists in acquiring wealth and helps in maintaining it. It is a stone of abundance and manifestation, attracting wealth and prosperity, success, and all things good.

The shape of the crystal can matter as much as you’d like it to. Choosing a shaped crystal won’t inhibit their properties. Heart shapes can also be used for issues of love and romance. For example, a heart-shaped Citrine could bring an abundance of love to your life.

What is the best method to heal and balance my Root Chakra (Base Chakra)? Which crystal is best and what about crystal tea?

Answer: There are a bunch of different ways to balance your chakras. It really depends on which method you would prefer to use. You can use just crystals or add them with meditation or yoga. However, we personally recommend a chakra bath using herbal bath teas.

We recommend the Red Jasper Herbal Bath Tea made with Organic Dandelion Root, Ginger Root, Ashagwanha, and Rosemary herbs, Himalayan/Epsom Salt mixture, Infused with Red Jasper.

To use, hang the tea bag on the faucet as you fill your bathtub. It is recommended to use warm water. Once your bathtub is filled, toss the bag into the tub and allow it to steep for 5 – 10 minutes. During the steeping process, you may enter the bath so the water doesn’t get cold. While enjoying the bath, imagine a red light around your pelvic area swirling in a counter-clockwise motion.

If the red light feels heavy or stuck while moving, it means your Root Chakra is unbalanced, so try moving the light in a clockwise motion. Moving the light in a clockwise motion brings energy to the chakra while counter-clockwise repels incoming energy or protects the chakra. Move the red light from your head to your feet in the motion that works best for you for about 5 – 10 minutes. If your light was heavy, you should feel it getting lighter as you move it.

The Root Chakra Tea is infused with Garnet, Jet, and Bronzite regularly and we rotate 3 crystals. Our current 3 are Red Jasper, Bloodstone, and Black Tourmaline.

What are the best crystals to protect an empath?

Answer: We recommend Black TourmalineClear QuartzAmethystMalachite, and Lepidolite.

Black Tourmaline is the most powerful grounding stone that protects from negative energy. It is the premier talisman of protection, a psychic shield deflecting and dispelling negative energies, entities, or destructive forces.  Black Tourmaline is devoted to grounding spiritual energies, bringing a clearer expression of Light into the world and into the lives of those drawn to its powers. It furthers the ability to remain radiant in the darkest of circumstances and to maintain a spiritual consciousness while living among those who are not always in the Light and do not understand the love of the universe.

Resonating at the level of an individual’s needs, Clear Quartz also amplifies whatever energy or intent is programmed into it, and continues to broadcast that energy throughout the world and into the etheric realms. This may accelerate the fulfillment of one’s prayers, intensify healing or spiritual growth, or simply allow the crystal to hold a pattern of energy long enough and strongly enough for the manifestation of a goal to occur. Clear Quartz produces a force field of healing negative ions while clearing the surroundings of positive ions, protecting the aura. It dispels static electricity and cancels out the harmful effects of radiation and radioactivity.

Amethyst has been highly esteemed throughout the ages for its stunning beauty and legendary powers to stimulate, and soothe, the mind and emotions. Amethyst is a stone of spiritual protection and purification; cleansing one’s energy field of negative influences and attachments. It creates a resonant shield of spiritual Light around the body. Additionally, it acts as a barrier against lower energies, psychic attack, geopathic stress, and unhealthy environments. It is a valuable protection for those doing psychic or intuitive work. This is because it enhances personal environments with a healing and protective circle of Light.

As an empath, you carry on other people’s emotional suffering as though it were your own. This imbalances the heart chakra which would cause feelings of being overwhelmed as an empath. Malachite is a Stone of Transformation, assisting one in changing situations and providing for spiritual growth. It heals on physical and emotional levels, drawing out impurities and stimulating the Life Force throughout the aura and body.  Malachite is a protection stone, absorbing negative energies and pollutants from the atmosphere and from the body.

Lepidolite reduces stress, fear, and anxiety that might be absorbed by an empath and brings a calming influence. Lepidolite has been known to be called a stone of spiritual purification that will help you to clear negative energy trapped within your auric field.
