Crystal Layouts for Self Healing, continued

Let us continue with some more Crystal Layouts for Self Healing. Before proceeding may we suggest that you review Self Healing Crystal Layouts. Here we covered subjects such as: Knowing your crystals. Plus, the importance of preparation and setting up, along with understanding the role of energy in crystal healing.    

We also described what many consider to be the three most popular Crystal Layouts for Self Healing. They were – Body Balance Layout with Seven Clear Quartz CrystalsAligning and Balancing the Chakras with CrystalsStress Release and Energizing Crystal Layout.

Here are some additional tips for you to consider.

Crystal Layouts can be very powerful and are excellent for self treatment, as well as for their use in professional healing sessions. 

  • You may further enhance your results by aligning your body with the earth’s magnetic field. Preferably have your head to the north and your feet to the south.
  • Allow plenty of time for completing your layout and for returning to everyday consciousness.
  • Be certain that you are properly grounded before resuming your normal activities.
  • Often times, several shorter sessions, say 5 to 10 minutes, conducted over several days, can be better than one longer session.
  • You may further enhance your crystal healing layouts by including coloured sheets or cloths as a base for healing.
    Or some prefer just using a neutral white sheet to lie on.

Crystal Layouts for Self Healing – Hematite Shield – for grounding and protection

In these modern times it is particularly important for us to remain ‘grounded’ and connected to Mother Earth. This allows us to stand in the truth of who we are, to be ‘present’ in our bodies and maintain our inner balance. A ‘Hematite Shield’ is a very effective layout for grounding and protection. As well as for staying focused and keeping our identity in times of change. It is also useful for achieving a desired energy shift.

A Hematite Shield is a very beneficial layout for all of us and is most effective for people, who work in a negative environment.  

This layout is best done on the floor. Some may prefer to rest their head on a small pillow. Once all the stones have been positioned, relax and stay in place for eleven minutes. You may want to set a quiet timer to know when the time is up. You may stay longer if you wish for the basic layout. However if you are using the circular breath of the advanced version, keep to eleven minutes. 

You will need 24 tumbled Hematite stones and 1 Pyrite. You can get by with any sized stones; however ideally stones around 25mm diameter are preferable and will give better results.

  • For the basic layout:-
  • One at the earthstar chakra which is about 15cms, 6 inches below the feet.
  • One located at the outside of each heal.
  • Place one on each chakra.
  • Pyrite at the crown.
  • Set twelve around the body, placed about 15cms from the body – at eye level, shoulder level, solar plexus, hips knees and ankles.
  • The remaining two are placed on the palm of each hand.

Advanced Hematite Shield with circular breathing 

An advanced version of the Hematite Shield includes the addition of circular breathing. The benefits of this layout can last up to six weeks. Complete everything as above (the basic Hematite Shield) and as your eleven minutes commence, slow your breath down and breathe from your abdomen. Imagine your in-breath coming in from your crown and filling your body all the way down to the souls of your feet. Then exhale out through every pore of your body, working your way down to your toes, as though it were a sieve, and take this breath out to touch the Hematites that surround you. Repeat. This creates a circular pattern of breathing going around from your crown, out through to your body to your toes and back again to your crown.  

Crystal Layouts for Self Healing – Amethyst Healing layout – to heal and calm

This layout may be used in any situation where physical, emotional or mental healing is required. Amethyst is a most versatile crystal and is particularly useful for creating a sense of calm.

You will require 8 Amethyst points or tumbled stones, preferably of a similar size, to provide a balanced energy flow. Odd sized crystals may produce a surging energy flow, or a ‘rolling’ sensation.

For this Layout, place one Amethyst above your head and another below your feet. Place the others on each side of the body at the shoulders, waist and knees. If you are using Amethyst points face the points in towards the body.

20 minutes is a suitable time for this session, but use your intuition and judgement to find your ideal time.  Afterwards hold a grounding crystal, or place it on the centre of your forehead, to ground you and refocus your consciousness.

As Amethyst balances and quietens the mind, you may become aware of an increase in psychic ability, imagination and a capability to visualize clearly, during your session.

Crystal Layouts for Self Healing – Amethyst Healing Layout for headache relief. 

This healing layout helps to free up blocked energies that may cause headache and help to reduce the pain.

You will need 4 Amethyst points or tumbled stones.

This healing layout may be carried out on a bed as well as on the floor. Lie down comfortably and place an Amethyst pointing upwards, in the centre of your forehead on the brow chakra. Place an Amethyst, again pointing upwards, at either side of the base of your neck, just above the collarbones. Place the fourth Amethyst above the top of your head, pointing away from your head. You may relax in this position until your headache is gone, or at least until the pain is sufficiently reduced to go about your duties. 

Crystal Layouts for Self Healing – Sunstone Healing Layout or Sun Energy – Energising

Use this layout when you are lacking in confidence, personal power, or motivation. This layout can help to recharge your batteries and return vital energy.

You will need 6 Sunstone tumbled stones. You may also choose to lie on a yellow sheet or cloth.

Set two Sunstones out at arm’s length, one to each side. Place a third below your feet to create a triangle. Now make another inverted triangle by placing a crystal to each side, out from your hips, with another above your head. You have created a Star of David pattern, with the Sunstones encircling your body. 

Lie back, enjoy yourself and imagine the sun shining down on you and filling you with light and sunshine. Stay for as long as you are comfortable; however 20 to 30 minutes is a reasonably suitable duration.

Crystal Layouts for Self Healing – Moonstone Healing Layout or Moon Energy – Relaxing

This layout is very relaxing and allows you to bask in feminine or yin energy. It also helps to restore equilibrium when you have an excess of yang or masculine energy.

Use this layout when you experience a sense of unworthiness or reluctance in your energy flow. It is also great for tapping into your intuition. 

You will need 5 Moonstones and you may also choose to lie on a deep blue cloth.

Set them out in a circle to make a 5 pointed star. I above your head, one out from each hand and out from and below each foot.

As you relax, lying in the energy of Moonstone, imagine moonlight shining over you and filling you with its soothing energy. After a while you should feel a calming energy flowing through your body.

Alternatively, you may place a Moonstone in the cradle of each shoulder and in the crevice at each hip.

By the way this layout is also outstanding for easing PMS and menstrual cramps. 

Crystal Layouts for Self Healing – Chakra charge

This layout allows you to balance out and to give a boost to any individual chakra that you have become aware needs some attention. In this example we will work on the heart chakra and for this we use a Rose Quartz. However, keep in mind that using any other heart chakra stone would be just as appropriate.

For any of the other chakras, simply select and use a crystal that corresponds with that chakra.

You will need 9 Clear Quartz points, preferably of similar size. You may use any reasonably sized crystal point, but those around 4cms or 1.5” are most suitable. I find laying on a white cloth most suitable. However you may choose to lie on a coloured cloth or sheet that corresponds with the chakra colour. 

Place a Clear Quartz point just below each foot, pointing up your leg. One at your crown, pointing inward and down your body. Then position your chosen chakra stone over its appropriate chakra location. In this case a Rose Quartz, on your heart chakra. Next, place a Quartz point above the chakra stone, pointing toward it. Another below it, also pointing at it. One on each side, also pointing in. Put the final two, one on each palm, pointing up your arm.

Often 5 to 10 minutes is all that is needed, however you may stay up to 20 longer if you wish to take the time to relax and reflect.
