Crystals are said to have energy and consciousness; therefore they are a great way to manifest what you are seeking. By combining the crystals into a cohesive group, you can heighten the potency of the energies and pack a powerful energetic punch! Crystal grids can be used for just about anything such as: abundance and prosperity, love, healing of all kinds, protection, creativity, chakra work, connecting with angels and spirit guides, past life recall, animal healing, and so on. The universe is the limit!
The best kept secret for creating a powerful and personalized grid is to use your intuition, but here are some basic steps and ideas to get you started.
Be clear in what you want and set a clear intention
Select crystals and layout
Cleanse crystals, space and self
Personalize grid with your own special touch
Use other energies such as herbs, spices, essential oils, Reiki, etc.
Set the mood with candles, incense, music, etc.
Place crystals in your grid
Activate your grid
Reactivate as needed and take down when you feel the time is right.
Activitating a Crystal Grid
Activating a crystal grid is the process of combining the energy of the crystals so that they are working together in unison. There are many ways in which one can do this. Some people use a crystal wand, some use their finger, and others simply use their intention. I demonstrate grid activation in the video below on the left. The video on the right talks about what to say during a grid activation, with a close up of a grid activation cheat sheet.

Here are a few crystal grids created by children under the age of 10. Please take necessary precaution and do not leave young children unattended.
Sun Crystal Grid
This was made by a young girl who wanted it to be sunny for her swimming birthday party, despite the forecast of rain. It started raining just as the last few guests were leaving the party. Coincidence? Maybe, but maybe not. Intention is very powerful! This grid includes Citrine, Pyrite, Clear Quartz and Pyrite. Also includes drawings made by the young girl as well as dolls in a "pool" to complete the intended visual. Very creative!
