Gemstone Spotlight: Selenite ~ Light Bringer

A Selenite Tower looms in the background where my broken Light Bringer Athame rests in the front with a Gilded Spring Candle burning.

The word Selenite comes from the Greek “Selenites”, meaning “moon stone” or “moon rock”, with the root word “Selene” meaning “Moon”, and for good reason – the mineral Selenite is the near transparent and colorless crystal form of Gypsum that exudes a pearly luster which glows and can very much resemble the moon.  The Greek Goddess of the Moon is named Selene,  Selenite contains feminine energy and is often used to connect and commune with the Divine, most specifically the goddess energy or that of the feminine divine.

Selenite opens, quickly, the third eye and crown chakra with an intensity that if  you point a selenite wand to your third eye, the energy it sends can feel like a gust of wind going through your forehead and out the crown.  Now that’s an impressive image to cleanse out, open and activate the upper chakras removing those cobwebs.  In my own practice I use selenite to cleanse my aura.  To do this I will hold a piece of selenite wand (I have a broken Light Bringer Athame from the SM Shoppe – the style we had break easily so we discontinued them until we find a better cut for these beautiful pieces) in my right hand, which is my projecting hand, and leave my left empty.  Standing, I will slowly “smudge” my energy (about 4 or 5 inches away from my body) by using my right hand to weave through the energy.  I will do this three times to ensure that I have removed all the ‘dirt’ from my energy.

Selenite can lift your awareness to higher planes, which will help facilitate meeting with your spirit guides and to receive communication from them.

An affirmation you could use when working with selenite could be “My higher self moves together with my waking self, I am awakened to receive clear messages and am one with the light”.
