I have been tinkering with the idea of working more with crystals these past few months. After several trips to a local crystal shop (Rock Paradise), my stash of crystals and stones has been growing as I read up on the subject and carefully learned the attributes and powers of each one.
The most PERFECT grid found me through Etsy back in August – one with a dragonfly motif. It has lived under my desk as a constant reminder it wants to be used, patiently waiting until the right time and reason to come out and play.
Unfortunately, even with raw crystals being as little as $2.00/each, populating a grid with anywhere from 2 – 8 of each stone can be pricey. There was a moment where I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to drop the $40 in time for Samhain, but the Goddess provided the needed funds through a website client that owed me for work done throughout the year. I went straight from the client to the bank to Rock Paradise and bought what I needed.
I’d like to give a shoutout to store staffer Mandy for all her help. She was a joy to work with and her intuitive picks for my gridding project were in perfect alignment with my thoughts and ideas as well.
I am also grateful for the vast wisdom and love of her community by Dr. Athena Perrakis of Sage Goddess. It was her Blue Moon Samhain ritual that inspired me to do a prosperity grid this year instead of the usual honoring the ancestors/parting the veil work we pagans tend to engage in. While listening to her YouTube live broadcast on my way home from work, she convinced me it was absolutely the right ritual and perfectly timed to do this year.
Anyhoo, I had hesitated at first to upload a pic of the finished product, but then realized that it might help someone else to see how it turned out, so here is the finished grid. As Dr. Athena suggested, I am keeping it up for the rest of the year to continue its work and as a reminder that I am not alone in my quest for financial stability in 2021. As the Celtic New Year begins, may we all find more prosperity in all ways (not just financial) in the coming year.
