Welcoming a new baby into the world is a magical time. Creating a space for baby that helps them to feel secure and happy allows the transition from being totally connected to mum to being in their own space easier.
For each of my 3 kids, I put together this simple set of stones and grided under their cot on the floor or beneath their mattress. I used Rose Quartz, Moonstone and Amethyst as the work a treat and are readily available.
Rose Quartz is like a warm snuggle for little ones that helps baby adjust to the new experience of being separate from mum. Position a piece of rose quartz in each of the 4 corners of the cot, on the floor or under the mattress. As baby starts to move around on their own you can move them to the corners of the room.
The Amethyst can go under the mattress, one in each corner and the moonstone under the mattress in the centre of the cot. Amethyst soothes, calms and protects babies from all the new energies they are adjusting to and as they slumber between worlds.
Moonstone is also good for baby as it protects them as they merge into the physical especially as they spend lots of time withdrawing and re-entering their body through sleep time. Place a small moonstone in the centre of the cot under the mattress or a bigger one on the floor.
Please note for safety is always the utmost concern with little ones; as soon as baby can sit up and there is a possibility of them lifting the corners of the mattress, you will need to move the crystals, as tasting sparkly crystals is something we dont want.
To get the crystals to work together to hold the space for baby, we need to activate the grid we have laid out. A grid is where you have multiple crystals combined and each of them join forces to create a larger field of energy than each can do on their own… like a community coming together for a cause.
We do this first by invoking the Light of Creation. The crystals hold the light within them, so does everything, including you and baby. Say to yourself ‘I invoke the Light of Source’ you might feel the light, see the light or get nothing… just know that the purest form of loving energy is working with you.
Then you need to take that energy and move it towards the crystals or to channel it. Say ‘I am a clear and perfect channel of the light’ and feel the light moving through you. Again just know its happening even if you cant feel it.
Then with intent (what we want the grid to do), ask the crystals to providing a loving and nurturing space where baby feels safe, a space that is clear and protected with light and love. You can ask for anything you would like the crystals to do – this is just an example.
This is a simple, yet powerful grid, working with cuboidal energies, or the frequency of earth to create a solid foundation… it is invoking the 4 directions, the 4 elements to ground those frequencies. It is a building block that we are creating. This is just to give you an idea of what is part of the process, not to overwhelm you.
You are now ready to activate the grid. Starting in the North position (find due north and choose the crystal closest to it) you send the white light of source to the 1st Rose Quartz crystal, then going clockwise send that white from the 1st crystal to the 2nd, then to the 3rd, then to the 4th, holding your intent as you go around.
Then you go into the middle to the Amethyst crystal in the North position. You send the white light of source to the first Amethyst crystal, then going clockwise send that white from the 1st crystal to the 2nd, then to the 3rd, then to the 4th, holding your intent as you go around.
Then you go to the Moonstone in the centre and you send the white light of source to the first Amethyst crystal, then back to the Moonstone, then going clockwise send that white from the Moonstone to the 2nd Amethyst crystal and back, then to the 3rd and back, then to the 4th, holding your intent as you go around.
Then you go back to the Moonstone in the centre and you send the white light of source to the first Rose Quartz crystal, then back to the Moonstone, then going clockwise send that white from the Moonstone to the 2nd Rose Quartz crystal and back, then to the 3rd and back, then to the 4th, holding your intent as you go around.
Once you finish in the centre, you have created a field of energy by linking all the stones together. It is both layered and solid and ready for baby. Give thanks to the crystals and the Light of Source for helping you.
