Gypsum occurs naturally as colorless to white tabular (column like) or needle like crystals, and is sometimes found colored with impurities. When finely granular it is known as alabaster, and when fibrous, Selenite. Although very soft, Selenite is prized as a semi-precious mineral, and is a valuable tool for healing.
Selenite enables one to achieve clarity of mind, and gain higher awareness. Fashioned as a wand, it will transmit electro-magnetic energy such as visible light along its length (very much like a bundle of optical fibers), and not surprisingly tfore, transmits healing energies. In the hands of a healer, a Selenite wand can be used as a "psychic sword" for healing and related energy work. You can increase the energy of other stones by pointing a Selenite wand at them. These wands are very potent. Be careful of your thoughts when working with Selenite. Selenite is often used for clarity of mental processes.
Selenite and Apophyllite are the only two minerals powerful enough to clear negative energies out of Quartz Crystals. Selenite is further unique in that it is the only mineral capable of programming Quartz Crystals. Point your Selenite Wand or place any crystal, specimen or pocket stone you have been working with on top of your Selenite Crystal. The Selenite will both clean any energies present and recharge your other crystals and stones. You can greatly increase any other crystal or stone energy by pointing your Selenite Wand or Crystal at the other stone. Reprogramming is done this way. Just visualize how you want the energy of your Quartz crystal or other stone to perform.
Spirit Guides, Angels, Higher Beings or Totem Animals can all be more easily contacted using a Selenite Crystal. Access your subconscious as well. These crystals are very potent. Be careful of your thoughts when working with Selenite. Rub your Selenite in an outward direction with two or three fingers. At the same time visualize and ask to contact a guide. Selenite provides a bridge to other worlds.
Selenite is often used for clarity of mental processes. It was the original record keeping stone in Atlantean and Lemurian times. Using the same rubbing technique, ask your Selenite for passage to particular areas of knowledge. Many times that knowledge is given to you in dreaming or while astral traveling. When using your Selenite Crystal in any of these ways or to amplify healing, make certain you use your inner powers to wipe clean the energy that has been placed into the Selenite.
Superior for psychic development and intuitive processes. Selenite more manageable than Quartz Crystal since Quartz has that uncompromising habit of amplifying everything, positive or negative. As a bridge to altered states of consciousness, Selenite is an excellent tool for visualization, meditation and working with the subconscious. Goes to the source of physical disorders and provides insights into probable causes. Outstanding as a journeying tool for Shamans.
Its unique ability to connect and balance the Spiritual and Physical bodies enables Selenite to do similar work between two persons. Selenite is so powerful as a record keeper that some couples use a large Selenite piece as a message center. It tends to smooth out any difficulties due to unclear messages.
Working with the subtle bodies Selenite pushes one to the area most in need of clearing and balancing. Its power in working with all of the chakras makes Selenite a universal healing implement. Selenite is not like any other healing stone or wand that focuses its particular energy on a problem.
A wand is a tool, it is simply a means of focusing energy and intent to achieve an aim, for example if your intent is to assist someone in their healing and you happen to be holding a wand then your intent will be focused by the wand. The wand could be of carved wood, of crystal, ornate in design or a plain twig given to you by a tree, all will focus the intent of the user to greater or lesser degrees. Have you ever sat in a classroom daydreaming and had the teacher point a ruler at you? If you have, you will recognize the sensation of having focused intent over unfocused intent direct at you! If the wand is made of crystal or contains crystals in its make up then your intent will be amplified as well as being focused. This results in an increase in your intent manifesting in your existence, so take care when focusing your intent particularly when holding a wand! The wands we produce are used primarily for healers and healing, although in our experience any contact with crystals whether with an intent to heal or not is a healing experience at some level. This can manifest itself so subtly that the energy exchange goes unnoticed, or can result in very tangible experiences such as tingling in the hands and arms. Sometimes you may experience sensations so powerful you think the top of your head is trying to unscrew itself and ascend without waiting for the rest of your body to catch up :-) Whatever the sensation experienced no matter how large or how small rest assured that there is an energy exchange between any living, conscious part of creation as we interact. Some of your vibrational imprint is given to the crystal and some of its imprint is given to you. When we produce a wand, we cleanse the wand before it leaves for its new home. This removes the vibrations of the wand maker from the piece so that it is in a neutral state until the new owner links with the wand. Each wand we create leaves with a simple safety precaution; the wands are dedicated to the light and may only be used for the very highest good of all involved in the use of the wand. So if you want a wand to turn your mother in law, ex lover, teacher, or boss into a frog do not be surprised if it does not manifest in your reality. Of course, if any of the above need a dose of froggyness for their and your very highest good then it might just work..............
Wand Use
Once having obtained your wand, either buying one or making your own, what to do with it? The simple answer will be to follow your own intuition, but the following tried and tested techniques have worked for us. Wands are rod like in shape, and generally, one end collects energy that is focused down the wand and directed to bring about change. One of the most common designs utilizes a sphere as the collector and a point at the other end as a director. Wands are normally held in the right hand. Energetically we receive energy with the left hand and give with the right hand. Focus your intent and then direct the energy through the wand to the recipient. The wand may be used in this fashion to draw sacred symbols, connect crystals in a grid or matrix, or direct energy to a person, time or place.
One of the prime uses of a wand is in healing. The wand may be used in whatever fashion feels appropriate. The wand may be passed up and down the recipient pointed at wounds or energy blockages etc and energy will be directed in. In addition, the wand may be placed base down on the recipient in order to draw negative energy or pain etc out. Once this energy is drawn out, it is important to transmute this negativity and there are a number of methods to achieve this. Wands may be laid on a recipient to balance the energy system, or to open the Chakra chain. Simply place the wand on or near the recipient and instruct the wand to perform the task. I work my wand by laying it by a client and focusing my intent that the wand open the energy system of the client and dissolve any energy blocks the energy encounters that are no longer serving. I also state positively that this is for the highest good of all involved.
In addition to healing wands may be used as an aid to meditation simply by holding the wand in the meditative state. In time, most practitioners develop a method of working with the wand that suits them; this page is intended as a general guide to enable you to develop a technique, which works for you. Feel free to experiment, but we recommend that before working with any energetic process a simple affirmation that what will take place occurs for the highest good of you and any recipient is good practice.
