Awaken your third eye & recognise your dreams.
I recently purchased a selenite wand from a local white witch shop, and I did so, not knowing what the crystals properties held – it was purely because I had felt drawn to it. I was curious, for whatever reason the crystal had chosen me.
Selenite is a popular stone for healing, balancing and cleansing. It is one of four varieties of the mineral "Gypsum". Selenite, is the ancient Greek word for 'Moon' after the moon goddess 'Selene'. Due to this it is often called the 'stone of the moon' or 'moonstone' even though it has no association with actual moonstone. It has a silky pearl/white appearance which changes in the light.
The selenite crystal is found close to the sea and within caves in Mexico and other parts of the world. This crystal is different to most, because unlike any other crystal it cleans itself. The best ways it does this is by using direct energy from the sun and the moon.
Selenite can also clean your other crystals, tarot decks, your aura and environment. I love to use this stone during meditation. Simply because it unblocks your chakras, offers them rebalance, and furthermore cleanses your third eye and crown chakra.
Your third eye chakra is associated with the Pineal gland and is based in between the eyebrows. Above this is the crown chakra. These two chakras hold close links to the brain and inner wisdom. When these are clear, one finds an improvement in memory, vision and intuition.
Keeping a selenite crystal or wand under your pillow or near you whilst you astral travel can help when you travel to far away places, and can offer you safety and guidance.
For people wanting to retain their dream information, the stone great at connecting with your third eye energy, as it improves memory. Meditate with your crystal before you retire for bed, or sleep with your crystal under your pillow. Keeping a note pad and pen near your bed, or writing down key elements from your dreams ( even in the notes on your phone) as soon as you wake up can also help you to remember your dreams too. This also makes it easier for you to interpret the symbols and signs your subconscious projects out to you.
I like to sit and hold the crystal while I'm watching tv and writing - to stimulate positivity, and to give me reassurance. It offers me a sense of calm, and collectiveness - and of all my crystals I've bonded mostly with my selenite.
It is important not to wash your crystals with water, as this will damage the crystal via erosion.
My Selenite Crystal is shaved to have a pointed end - hence why it is a called a 'wand'. Selenite wands are very common. You can wave them (pointing upright) to areas in which you wish to cleanse - like your bedroom, your car , (your work if you're like me) and yourself.
On first assumption, we associate religion and Spirituality as one - however, the differences are vast. Hence, you can be a 'Spiritual Christian'. Spirituality is all about connection. Building a connection with yourself, to your 'Higher self' which is your eternal, intelligent being. (Otherwise known as your soul, divine self, true self) In order to make this connection, you follow a spiritual journey. Your spiritual journey is filled with both physical and emotional experience. It's what we take from these experiences and how we move forward through our lives that help us to discover who we really are - and our 'Higher self'.
