I like to celebrate the change of seasons. Each season has its own beauty, and crystals are a perfect way to enhance the natural magnificence of fall.
One of my favorite ways to change the energy of a space is to create a crystal grid. Each combination of stones creates a unique energy that enhances the vibration of the space in a particular way.
Here are 3 grids I created to celebrate the fall season.
The natural tendency in the fall is to begin to go within. Shorter, cooler days and longer nights encourage this. This grid contains smoky quartz, astrophyllite, and plasma quartz.
When choosing stones for this grid, I wanted one that encouraged introspection and dreaming. Smoky Quartz fit the bill perfectly. This stone helps you focus when you need to. It helps to gently ground you into the moment and see the perfection of each moment. Smoky Quartz helps you to go within and look at places where you may want to shift things around or make some changes. It is also a great stone to counteract the depression that sometimes comes with less natural light.
Astrophyllite is a stone that also increases focus. Radiating energy and intensity, it can “light up” the darker days of fall. It helps to create insight and awareness when going within. Apophyllite is the energizing stone for this grid.
The other stone in this grid is plasma quartz from Colombia. It is simply there to enhance the energy and bring more light into the space where the grid is placed. These stones deserve an article all their own. More to come as I work with them.
Celebrating the fall season has a lot to do with gratitude. Traditionally all of the crops have been harvested, and there is plenty for everyone. It is a time to give thanks for the abundance of life. This grid, to me is a celebration of that abundance. The spiral represents life unfolding in its own perfection.
This grid contains orange calcite, carnelian agate, honey calcite, and sunstone. The colors of autumn leaves, and the beauty of nature at this time of year.
Orange calcite sphere has several meanings. The sphere represents unity and wholeness. Orange calcite is a stone of energy and new life. It may seem counterintuitive, but I like to use this stone for creative projects. Many deeply creative ideas and projects are birthed in the period of inner focus that is fall and winter. Its cheerful color can also counteract the gloomier days of autum. Carnelian is in this grid for much the same reason. In addition, it adds warmth to the energy of the room.
Honey calcite to me, represents abundance. Its golden color brings in the gold ray of abundance and a high vibration of consciousness. This vibration comes when gratitude is practiced on a daily basis. This is not seasonal, but year-around. Honey calcite also links you to the continuous flow of change and growth. Perfect for this season of change.
Finally, sunstone is a stone that brings in warmth and brightness as the days grow colder and darker.
Fall is not typically associated with new beginnings, but for some reason this fall feels like new energy is coming in. If you would like to read more about some new beginnings at Spirit Dancer click here. There is more detail in my October newsletter. I mostly put this grid together to use the plasma quartz. It is bringing in an incredible amount of light. It is not currently for sale at Spirit Dancer because it is being made into wands for Magical Delights. If you have experience with wands from Magical Delights then you know how powerful and beautiful they are. I will try to put some up as they get made.
The other stones in this grid are herkimer diamonds, apophyllite, and pearls (technically not a stone). All of these stones are about high vibration and light. They are reflective of the new beginnings that are starting to appear on this earth. This grid will be spectacular to meditate with as the days get shorter and the veils to the spirit world thin. I look forward to writing more as I spend some time with this grid.
