Whether it’s their beauty or their potential unexplainable powers, crystals seem to have a serious hold on the modernly mindful woman.
Despite my healthy skepticism of anything that claims to be a quick fix, a few months ago I went through a period of serious crystal longing. For weeks, I’d stop into crystal shops and peruse the gems, then chicken out and leave without buying anything. Eventually, I invested in a few pocket-sized rocks that I’ve taken to carrying around in my purse. Truth be told, I usually forget they’re in there, but when I do remember it’s a nice feeling.
But I’m all about utility—I’m a bit of a minimalist at heart—and I wanted to know more about what I could do with my new gems, other than carry them around and hope that their powers took hold. That’s when I stumbled upon crystal grids (you’ve definitely seen them on your Instagram feed before), and facial crystal grids.
Basically, you place your rocks in a geometric shape—you can make up your own or follow a sacred layout—to increase the power of your intentions. According to Erica Kmiec, of crystal shop and online site Energy Muse, “Crystal grids are energy tools to use when manifesting. The source of their power comes from a fusion of energies. Arranging a combination of healing crystals into a pattern of sacred geometry creates an energetic force. When that energy blends with your intentions, the rate at which you are able to manifest becomes amplified.”
It’s possible to amplify macro intentions that pertain to our personal health, relationships, and career. But crystal grids can even be utilized as a tool to help fight signs of aging, or clear up stubborn acne.
“Crystal grids are like keys to different doors. If you’re looking to unlock the energy of relaxation, you’ll need to use a different grid than if you were going for an anti-aging energy. Each crystal facial grid uses specific energy combinations to help you achieve skin that radiates a healthy glow from within.” – Erica Kmiec, Energy Muse
But you shouldn’t just put a few stones on your face and hope for the best, says Erica. “Everybody’s skincare needs are different. Finding the perfect grid for you is kind of like finding the right foundation. It’s all about getting in touch with your own needs. The 4 unique and powerful crystal grid formulas I’ve developed are for issues that I think we all could use a little help with.”
