One of my favourite crystals is selenite. According to the ancient Greeks, selenite means moon rocks or moon stones. The moon represents feminine energy and it’s this energy that is contained in selenite.
The Goddess Selene in Greek mythology was an ancient lunar divine being for whom selenite was named for. She was known as far-winged, a term generally applied to birds in flight. Selenite’s matrix in its natural state is likened to feathers in a bird’s wing. Her Roman mythological counterpart was called Luna. These goddesses precede the Diana, the huntress and the Goddess of nature, childbirth and protector of the weak. Whatever the deity, she represented herself as Goddess of the moon. The feminine energies found in selenite have always facilitated the connection to the Goddess or Goddess energy.
Selenite has the most purest of energies and highest of vibrations. It is pure light and energy. Imagine a glorious, righteous light shinning in the darkness, holding back unseen forces, this is the power of selenite. When you feel lost or alone, selenite will shine a bright light on you connecting you with your higher self, your guides and the angelic realm. Its vibrations are so strong that is shines a light even in the darkest of places and the darkest of souls.
Selenite is a variety of Gypsum, a very common mineral found in sedimentary rocks. It is formed through the evaporation of salt water from ancient seas. Selenite is an extremely soft delicate crystal. You can scratch it with your fingernail and rough handling can cause it to splinter or break. As its salt based it should never be cleansed with water, it will start to break down and dissolve. This crystal should only be cleansed with intention, white sage smoke, full moon energy or other crystals. This being said, this crystal does not hold onto negative energy and is not a crystal that belongs wrapped in a soft cloth, hidden in a drawer. This crystal is a carrier of light and belongs in the light where it can shine.
So while physically this crystal is very fragile, metaphysically she has no equal. Selenite is more powerful than quartz and vibrates at a very high frequency, some saying almost too high to be seen manifested on our physical plane. Selenite is able to balance and lift us above our emotional feelings to the feelings within our deepest soul.
A very protective stone, Selenite shields an individual or space from outside influences. Selenite evokes the highest of protection from the angelic realm and will dispels negative energy. The powerful energies of Selenite help one connect with one’s guides, guardians, Christ Consciousness and Higher Self. Selenite can be held or placed around a person to facilitate such a connection.
Selenite calms and soothes us, bringing a deep peace and sense of tranquillity. Selenite creates a safe and peaceful space. Meditating with Selenite aids in accessing our past and future lives. Selenite brings mental clarity, clearing confusion and revealing the bigger picture behind any problem.
Selenite exists between two worlds: the material and the ethereal. She stands at the doorway between spirit and nature and provides communication between both planes. She connects us with our higher self and attracts direction from our guides and angels. She deepens our meditative state and our intuitive capabilities. She enhances our ability to astral travel and to channel information. She is a bright light shining in the dark illuminating our path and helping us to find our way…..
One of selenites strengths is her ability to cut negative cords and sever harmful attachments to your chakras. Selenite also absorbs stress and negativity. Just holding a piece of Selenite in your hands helps to drain negativity from your body and auric field. If you have a bad experience that keeps replaying in your mind and you want to end this negative cycle, visualize this memory and emotion going into the Selenite crystal and then reflecting out into the Universe to be transformed and neutralized. And then make the choice not to allow that thought-pattern any more rulership over your mind. If there is a place on your body where you feel a bit “off”, place the Selenite crystal on that spot and allow it to absorb all the “yuckiness” off of you. Selenite is receptive: it absorbs negativity and harmful energy, dissolving it.
Severing Harmful Attachments from your Chakras
Hold a Selenite wand in your right hand, close your eyes, and take several long, slow deep breaths as you connect with your crystal.
Raise your right hand, holding the Selenite wand, up to your Crown Chakra, which is located a few inches above your head. Visualize a spinning wheel of violet energy. With a quick, cutting motion, bring the wand down past the Crown Chakra and say, “I sever all harmful ties to my Crown Chakra”. As you say this, picture the wand “cutting the cord”.
Next bring the wand to your forehead, at the Third Eye Chakra and visualize a spinning wheel of dark blue indigo energy. With the same cutting motion, bring the wand down past the Third Eye saying, “I sever all harmful ties to my Third Eye Chakra”.
Next bring the wand to your throat, and visualize a spinning wheel of light blue energy. With the same quick, cutting motion, bring the wand down past your throat saying, “I sever all harmful ties to my Throat Chakra”. In your mind’s eye, see the cord being cut.
Next bring the wand to your heart, and visualize a spinning wheel of green energy. With the same quick, cutting motion, bring the wand down past your Heart and say, “I sever all harmful ties to my Heart Chakra”. In your mind’s eye, see the cord being cut.
Next bring the wand to your belly area, a few inches above the navel. Visualize a spinning wheel of yellow energy. With the same quick, cutting motion, bring the wand down past your Solar Plexus and say, “I sever all harmful ties to my Solar Plexus Chakra”. In your mind’s eye, see the cord being cut.
Next bring the wand down to the area a few inches below the navel. Visualize a spinning wheel of orange energy. With the same motion, bring the wand down quickly past the Sacral Chakra, and say, “I sever all harmful ties to my Sacral Chakra”. In your mind’s eye, see the cord being cut.
Bring the wand down to your groin area, near the base of the spine. Visualize a spinning wheel of red energy. With the same motion, bring the wand down past the Root Chakra and say, “I sever all harmful ties to my Root Chakra”. In your mind’s eye, see the cord being cut.
Finally, with one, long sweeping motion, bring the wand up again through the chakras, from Root to Crown, saying: “My chakras are now cleared of all harmful energy and are balanced.
