This crystal cleansing sequence is one that has never failed me. I love this because I can start it when I am feeling angry or emotional. In fact, the best time to start this one is when emotions are haywire. It begins with a full acceptance of the present moment and ends in the desired state of being.
Raw selenite can sluff off tiny shards so it is a safe practice to take a few dry paper towels and gently wipe away and loose shards that may come off in contact while in use.
Cleanse the bloodstone by running through running water or a ritual smudging.
Prepare 1 ritual candle with the purification herbs.
Begin by creating a comfortable space on the floor where you will be uninterrupted. Smudge this area using sweetgrass or white sage. You will be laying flat on your back for this session but if that is too uncomfortable, you can sit upright in a chair with bare feet touching the floor. Allow yourself at least 15 minutes for this ritual – longer for the 1st session.
You may want to lower the lights, play some soft music in the background, take a ritual bath beforehand or anything that will help you relax. If you are charged with emotions, bring in a light blanket to lay over you during your session.
Place the ritual candle about 1 foot away from your feet, centered between your two feet.
Visualize a straight line that starts with the ritual candle at your feet and runs straight up through you and out above your head. This is the line in which you will be placing your selenite. Your first selenite should be right in between your feet, the second selenite at
your root chakra, the 3rd selenite at the third eye chakra & the last piece of selenite just above your head.
Keep 1 small tumbled stone in each closed fist to your sides and breathe. Practice breathing & releasing techniques for clearing your aura. As you become lighter and begin to purify your energy gently move your arms up and out away from your sides, palms up, stones in hand, while remaining relaxed and affixed to the floor. Continue breathing and releasing until your arms have reached all the way above your head and your hands are open and relaxed.
When your arms have reached all the way to the top, focus on your intention as if it had already happened. Absorb the I AM energy of your intention and close the ritual with warmed honey water or other nurturing drink.
You can use this ritual to cleanse and redirect your energy in any moon phase or planetary hour. To alter this ritual to a specific moon phase, astrological energy or intention simply perform the ritual in the associated planetary hour or phases that you desire and add intention crystals to the solar plexus or other chakras as needed. Inscribe and dress
the beeswax ritual candle with special herbs or resins that align with your intention and your all set!
Bloodstone carries a tremendous power to ground one fully in the body, in the here and now, and to enhance one’s capacity to function with strength, determination and courage. Bloodstone teaches that chaos often precedes transformation and guides one in knowing when it is appropriate to strategically withdraw from situations, and when flexibility and taking right action will help one remain true to one’s own path. Bloodstone calms the
emotional body, dispels confusion and enhances decision-making, nourishing feelings of worth, self-confidence and self-sufficiency.
Selenite has a direct effect on the emotional body. However, unlike stones that soothe and calm the emotions, selenite activates the aspect of our nature connected to our true spiritual feeling and path. These crystals are particularly effective in stabilizing the emotional body and bringing erratic emotions under calm control. Selenite quickly opens, balances and activates any chakra and is especial good with the third eye, crown chakra, and the soul star chakra above the head. It’s the most powerful clearing stone for the upper chakras. It cleanses the aura, clears and energize all the glands of the body, clears all blockages in the energy field, cuts cords of dysfunctional energy from the etheric body.
When burning sweetgrass for healing or ritual purposes the smoke is intended to attract good spirits and positive energies. It is used as a smudging tool to purify auras, cleanse objects, and clear ceremonial areas or healing spaces.
Beeswax candle making
These little sheets are made of 100% beeswax and are simple to use. Without using much pressure, inscribe your affirmation or symbols into 1 side of your candle. Cut the wic to approximately about half an inch longer than your candle length. Take a blow dryer and blow warm air along the edge lengthwise for about 5 seconds. Careful, too much heat will cause the wax to melt and you only want to soften it. Once it has softened, gently press the wic alongside the very edge of the wax sheet in a straight taught line. Take the blow dryer and gently blow warm air over the entire sheet of wax once more, when its softened, sprinkle on a teaspoon of herbs and gently press in. Once the herbs have stuck, quickly begin to roll the wax sheet beginning with the wic side until the entire candle has been
tightly rolled. If the wax begins to cool and become brittle, you can continue to gently warm until it becomes pliable.
Once rolled you have a dressed ritual/spell candle. At this time, you can anoint with oils and place in a candle holder for use. Sheet candle wics (3/0 square braid) require regular attention and may need to be snipped down to a quarter inch if the flame becomes too large.
