helping the bees

The ‘helping the bees’ Bumble Bee Jasper Star of David (hexagram) grid around a Smoky Brandenberg. It attracted a huge number of bees – helped by the sage in the background.

This has been extracted from Earth Blessings but I’ve added more material to assist you in laying out environmental and personal healing grids.

Stages of laying out an environmental grid

  • Decide on the grid template – sunburst, multi-armed spiral, Tree of Life etc. (see below. You’ll find plenty of examples in my books).
  • Roughly lay out the grid. Dowse for individual placements if appropriate.

  • Step back and check by eye. The grid below has crystals missing in the righthand spiral between the two large stones. A linking crystal was required.Step back

Practical example: 2013 summer solstice and ‘super moon’ layouts

Crystals: Shiva Lingam, Smoky Elestial Quartz, Flint, Lemurian, Citrine, Selenite, Granite, Chalk.

Practical exampleAs the 2013 summer solstice was closely followed by a ‘super moon’ when the moon was at its closest to Earth and its energy particularly potent, it was my intention to take advantage of the energies generated to re-charge my local sacred landscape. The first alignment faced the midsummer pre-solstice sunset and was placed on one of twelve radiating sun-lines at Knowlton Henge. Knowlton is a chalk ditch and bank henge, perfect for creating an energetic battery for earth healing. The intention was to charge up the stones with the energy of the sun and transfer it to a new solstice sunrise layout the next morning to fertilise the surrounding area.

I walked around the henge to feel where the layout wanted to be placed. My feet tingled strongly as I reached the westerly line towards the dying sun. I laid out a straight line first. The Shiva Lingam focal point of the layout would become the centre of a solstice sunrise layout the next day. The energies passed through a large Smoky Elestial to purify them and a Citrine ball to revitalise them before being stored in the Lingam. The Elestial Smoky Quartz also acted as a purifier for the grid, its cleansing effect on the earth energies of the Henge passing out through Lemurian Quartzes radiating out from the central alignment.

Having refertilised the area through a Shiva Lingam-based sunrise layout the next day, I wanted to channel the energy of the ‘super moon’ to initiate further regenesis. The layout could not be laid at Knowlton as it was crowded with people celebrating this extraordinary moon. So, the layout was placed in my garden, which is bedded on a thick layer of chalk. It is on a leyline linking Knowlton and the termination of the Dorset Cursus, the longest and oldest ritual way in England and so would radiate power throughout the energetic network. In front of a Buddha statue, it would bathe in the light of the huge full moon. Large Smoky Quartz points, Smoky Elestials and local blue and yellow Flints drew in and cleansed negative energies. At the centre, a Selenite moon tower brought pure light into the layout, which was radiated out through Clear Quartz points. The Smoky Quartz pointed inwards to draw in energy, the Clear Quartz pointed outwards to channel the energy out again. A Preseli Bluestone ‘dragon’s head’ behind the Buddha anchored the grid and connected it to the Stonehenge network.Stonehenge network

The super moon layout (a variant on a radiating sunburst as this one draws energy in to be purified and channels it out again). A Bluestone in the wild strawberries at the back opposite the rising moon anchored the grid.

Making the layout work for you

You can use the same procedure for placing any layout straight onto the earth. If appropriate, dowse for the exact alignment and position of the crystals but, as you develop your crystal intuition more strongly, you instinctively know where to place the crystals and recognise when a layout is properly aligned and fully active.

Winter Solstice 2016

This multi-armed grid was also laid in my garden with the help of Yuliya Surnina and Emma Penman. It was created from Celtic Quartz and Sea Foam Flint. It was to be photographed for a crystal grids book I was working on, but it also had to do its earth energy healing work. There are times when the two objectives don’t quite match and it was only later that I’d realised we’d laid it in a shady part of the garden that wouldn’t photograph quite as well. Fortunately the photographer, Michael Illas is creative and had an answer to that: light it. It was also rather larger than we’d envisaged. The Earth has its way of making its needs known!

Laying a grid for a person: distance healing

distance healingThis emergency ‘first aid’ grid was laid for a dear friend of mine who had been hospitalised with a severe nosebleed following previous medical treatment. Jade soothed the nose, Quantum Quattro formed an upward healing pentagram, and an inverted pentagram of Smoky Quartz drew off the toxins.

And don’t let any ignorant person tell you it’s a sign of evil, it’s not. It’s one of the oldest protective symbols in the world!
