Crystal Magick: Selenite

Selenite, named after the Moon Goddess Selene, is a clear, transparent crystal that forms naturally in long blade-like shapes. It is quite delicate, and is often formed into wands or spheres. It is so delicate that it can be scratched by a fingernail. Amazingly, it always feels cool to the touch and has a luminescent, lunar quality. It is feminine and receptive, and is associated with the Moon and the element of Water.Due to it’s delicate nature, it should be used only for certain kinds of healing and meditation rather than for everyday use. In other words, this is one of those “strong, silent” crystals when you need something extra special!

Selenite is used to cleanse the aura of any unwanted energies and severs harmful connections to the Chakras. I use my own Selenite wand for this very purpose, and below there are instructions how to do this yourself. We each have a multi-layered aura, a personal energy field that surrounds our bodies. As we go through our day-to-day lives, with all it’s stresses and problems, harmful energy can accumulate and attach itself to our various chakra points. Sometimes this negative energy comes from other people who wish us harm, or are unknowingly sending bad energy in our direction. By using Selenite combined with meditation, you can snip those connections and free your aura and your chakras from that harmful energy.

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 specific 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.

Selenite is also useful for expectant mothers, helps reduce the pain of childbirth, and helps the mother draw upon lunar energies during pregnancy. For expectant mothers who use Tarot or other divinatory tools, keep a piece of Selenite near your divination tools. The energy from the crystal will enhance your readings.

As mentioned earlier, Selenite is named after Selene, the Moon Goddess. It is a powerful crystal to use in lunar rites and Full Moon magick. If you want to charge your crystal with magickal intention, on the night of the next Full Moon, take your Selenite crystal outside and hold it up so that the Moon is reflected through it. Allow the crystal to be filled completely with moonlight. Watch how it begins to glow with a bright mystical light. As you hold the crystal up to the Moon, say, “Selene, Goddess of the Moon, lend your energy and strength to this crystal, that it be used for the highest good, harming none. So Mote It Be”.

Severing Harmful Chakra Attachments With A Selenite Wand 

Light a white candle and Sandalwood incense. Hold the Selenite wand in your right hand, close your eyes, and take several long, slow deep breaths until you achieve a meditative state.

Slowly raise your right hand, holding the Selenite wand, up to your Crown Chakra, a few inches above your head. Visualize a spinning wheel of violet energy at the Crown Chakra. 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 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.

Next bring the wand down to your groin area, near the base of the spine. Visualize a spinning wheel of red energy. With the same quick 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. I am completely healthy on all levels. So Mote It Be”.
