Celebrating the Fall Season: Crystal Grids

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.


Going Within

Going Within

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.


New Beginnings

New Beginnings

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 piut 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.



Golden Ray Grid: Gateway to Higher Consciousness

Golden Ray Grid

The golden ray grid pictured here acts as a gateway to higher consciousness.

It contains stones that I consider high vibration connectors: Heliodor, Citrine, Plasma Quartz and Brucite. Bringers of light each and every one.

One of the best definitions of the Golden Ray that I have found comes from this blog article by Ahtayaa Leigh in OmTimes Magazine 2015.

The Golden Ray
The Golden Ray is the 12th Ray of Creation and is the highest frequency of God’s Light currently available to the Earth plane. It contains the essence of all the preceding rays, and its energy is what is known as Christ Consciousness; the experience of Oneness with the Creator.
When you activate the Golden Ray in your field, you connect with the Great Central Sun, which is the Firstborn of Creation, from where all souls originate. Therefore, when you connect with the Great Central Sun through the Golden Ray of Unity Consciousness, you connect with the highest aspect of your soul, which resides in Oneness with all souls. It is the Great Oversoul. In this space, everything in Creation is known, including the best solution for every imbalance. When you work with this Ray, you go beyond healing. It brings forth complete transformation and spiritual rebirth.
The ultimate purpose of the Golden Ray is to assist souls in their journey back to the One, but on a more mundane level, it manifests the qualities of peace, harmony, creativity and unconditional love. It also balances the Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine energies within. It is the Ray of God that blends the physical with the Spiritual, combining Heaven and Earth.
The Golden Ray brings you into the Now, helping you gain inner clarity and inner knowing, while opening your connection to be guided by your highest Self.

Meditation with the Golden Ray

When I meditated with this golden ray grid I got the following information:

This grid is a gateway to the light. It opens the halls of knowledge and wisdom. It is one path to elevation. A way to climb out of the darkness.

This is not to negate the darkness, for it is there that some of the greatest wisdom is gained. You do not, however, have to live in that place anymore. It is a function of where you have been, not where you are going.

The Golden Ray can come on line when you have found your way through the darkness within you. Not by bypassing it but by acknowledging it as a part of you.

By accepting and integrating all of your pieces, you can walk through the gateway of higher understanding.

In this place you can choose darkness as the deep rich soil of the Earth where creations are born. And the light of Being, where those creations are brought forth.

It is a new way to view duality. As a place of choosing and directing your energies. Dark and Light = Creation and Expression.

Neither good nor bad. Just being in an elevated state. In the sparkles.

Create Your Own Grid

This is the message of the grid I have created here. I encourage you to meditate with it for your own messages.

Or create your own grid that reflects your understanding of the Golden Ray.

Send me a picture if you like, I’d love to see your creations.



“Lake of Material Well-Being” Manifestation Grid

A few years ago a dear friend of mine was going through a rough time, both creatively (he is an artist) and financially. He did a meditation where he was shown the “Lake of Material Well-being”. It is the color of a flaming sunset; a liquid orange expanse where he can go to regain his creative juices.

This manifestation grid puts you in touch with your own lake of material well-being and works to connect you with the creative flow that generates true prosperity and abundance. Use this grid when you are creating something for your business, creating an artistic offering, or creating something in your life in general. (more…)

The Transcendent Heart Matrix

I have been working with this grid for over 5 years now and it continues to amaze me. Below is the original story I wrote all those years ago about the beginnings of this matrix, or grid.

Since the time this was written, countless ceremonies have been performed with the Transcendent Heart Matrix. It has brought new guides and new understandings as I meditate with it. A field of protective angelic energy surrounds it, and it has become a permanent part of my mesa, or shamanic altar.

Here is the story of the origin of this transformational grid: (more…)

Lithium Quartz: Opening the Heart Chakra

Lithium Quartz RevLithium quartz are very calming and balancing, that is why I believe they are so popular right now.  When I meditated with this stone, I was given a slightly different, although compatible, use for them.  I am offering this information as an addition to many of the things written about this stone in other places.
