‘Tis the Season. A Season of Light and a Season of Love. It’s a time to gather with loved ones, a time to spread compassion, and time to call forth light during the darkest time of year. In fact, a quick perusal of the Mystics Wheel of the Year calendar in this newsletter and you will notice a trend: 14 different festivals celebrating Light, honoring a bringer of Light or celebrating the Divine Mother as protector, provider and giver of life.
Selenite is a bright and shining mineral like the moon. Indeed it is named after the Greek Moon Goddess Selene. She was an embodiment of tranquility, blessing, love and light–4 of the very virtues befitting the season.
“It is believed to contain the liquid Light of Spirit and it is thought to reflect a pure beam of white light into any environment in which it rests.”
Inspiring peace, Selenite also clears and activates. It is great for use in all spiritual work, including: working with your crown chakra, setting resolutions, connecting to spirit guides and facilitating meditation. It is helpful in eliminating negative thoughts and patterns and is ideal for gridding a space to protect from and clear negative energy. It can even be used to re-charge or clear other crystals, all while being one of thew few crystals which itself does not need cleaning.
“It is a beautiful means for accessing and grounding the Light Body of an individual, and for opening one to the higher levels of Self.”
Selenite is also a wonderful talisman for women:
- bringing radiance and harmony
- providing support through all cycles of life
- supporting fertility, pregnancy and motherhood
