@ Skywatcher, yes I have trust with the energy of crystals. Beings a scorpio I keep the birth stones I have, on my being or close by at all times, as for making a grid..... I haven't done that and not sure if I can or know how due to the multiple grid layouts that can be arranged. I have a charging stone but I can't remember the name of the stone, I can put a pic of it up if need be, it was gave to me. I also have a few random stones that were gotten from a river bank, most people would consider them just rocks but for some reason I kept them............
I am going to start by saying shaman and healers of old, did not have a local crystal shop, or the internet to find materials they needed.......................
Do not dismiss the power and energy of crystals and stones that "came to you" while walking. They are there for a reason.
I have many "rocks" I have picked up because they called to me somehow, and also some that I picked up while looking with a specific intent, such as dreamstones. Your intuitive feel of any stone is your most valuable asset. Trust it. When you walk with intent to find stones to assist you, they will draw you when they are willing to work with you.
Gridding is 95% intuition, and placement is not a map to be followed, but more a matter of combining properties that add to the intended outcome, and knowing once bound, the total is greater than the individual parts.
I have stones I prefer for repelling negatives, but the intent you place is what creates the focus that then radiates outward.
Quartz is a generator, and amplifies the properties of stone it is used with. It also makes a good focus point to build around.
There are so many options, it is not any one combo to create a safezone. I carry a Nuummite when I want a strong shield. It repels any negative back to the source, multiplied. It helps reinforce "the mirror", and is most helpful when I am going someplace where I know there will be toxic people around. It cannot be used with ill will to another however, as that would have a reverse effect. Its more of a confidence I am safe from negative vibes overwhelming and becoming confused with my own mind, and a satisfaction that what is thrown will bounce back and the sender gets what they sent. I need feel no malice.
Other very protective stones are I carry at times are Kyanite,(which like Selenite will retain no negative, so it clears and does not need cleaning itself), Agates, obsidians, and tourmaline. There are hundreds more, but these are some of my favorites for what you are trying to block for a while.
I have grid my entire house. I use geometric layouts of simple construction like 4 point or 6 point positions around a single amplifier like a Quartz. ( Chlorite inclusion Quartz is most effective for a protective grid center. Around this I selected a combination that was all supportive. Lapiz for psychic attack, Kyanite to remove the negative, Rose Quartz for balancing with love and positive, Carnelian as a physical protection, Amethyst for toxins of the mind and body, and Ruby in Fushite as another positive infusion of well being.
ANY STONES THAT FEEL SUPPORTIVE, PROVIDE A SENSE OF WELL BEING, AND FEEL COMFORTABLE TO YOU WILL WORK. TRUST YOUR SENSES
I placed these in a 6 point around the quartz, and put 16 pieces of black tourmaline in a circle around it. The grid is then charged with its purpose, (that no negative energy shall pass within or disturb anyone within, and shall reflect away) I charge with the white light, the universal source, and fill the grid to radiate above and below, and in all directions as a circle. I then cover the grid to leave all the parts to meld as one. Afterwards, I spread the outer ring of tourmaline to all corners and points between of the perimeters of the house, which spread the radius to encompass the house and all within.
I keep the heart of this grid charged and cleansed, and it has worked well for me. I also like salt crystals as absorption material that clears and replaces with positive.
I mention specific stones, but there are multiple substitutions that are eqivalent, but the most powerful channels for your intent will be stones that were attracted to you and you to them. I do not believe in coincidence. If you kept them, they were wanting to help and assist you.
Once again Baphom, I have sent you positive energy to help and be well. Touch a tree you like. I send through the living matrix of all that connects in the living veneer. The trees are my friends and they carry messages and energy for me when I ask nicely......
