Altar Essentials Box

Creating a sacred space is a lovely mindful practice. The act of preparing a space filled with meaningful and ritual items is calming and grounding. This month’s box contains several functional and beautiful items to grace your sacred space.

-Lotus Art Card: Symbolizes the purity of speech, body and mind.

-Selenite Wand: Selenite is a stone of mental clarity. This clarity enhances mental flexibility and enables strong decision making abilities.  Selenite is also a stone of truth and honesty. This promotes good business practices as well as honesty in other types of relationships.

Selenite is associated with the moon, this brings associations and energies of the unconscious, instinct, subconscious, and emotional well-being.  The moon association also brings water energy to the fore, creating the flexibility and intuition. It is used for contacting and communicating with angels for guidance. It can also be used for finding and working with other spirit guides.

Selenite removes energy blocks, particularly from the physical and etheric bodies. It can also remove energy blocks in the bodies of other crystals and stones. This makes it excellent for enhancing the properties of other stones and for clearing and charging them.
Selenite is a stone of powerful intuition and psychic awareness through its influence on the third eye chakra. Meditation and spiritual development are eased and promoted by selenite. Meditations become sparkling clear over time.

Selenite can be used to dispel negativity, both on an emotional and an etheric level. This makes it a good stone for protection. This energy combined with its angel associations makes it outstanding for angelic protection. You need only hold the selenite and pray or ask with intent for angels to protect you.

Selenite is a stone of love, which on the surface may seem odd. Its properties of mental flexibility and honesty help maintain a loving relationship comfortably and with ease. It also brings harmony and inner peace which allow for recognizing love and acting in a loving manner. Visit Crystal Meanings for more crystal info.

-Cast Iron Charcoal and Incense Burner, Coals & Sand: This old style charcoal burner is a beautifully simple way to burn your resin and stick incense. Pour the sand in the bowl before using charcoal to evenly distribute the heat of the coal.

ALSO-you can break your coal in half to make them last longer.

-White Metal Buddha Box: This beautiful box is a special place to hold your sacred objects or other meaningful items.

This month each box will also include a free month of online yoga from yogaforyouonline.com

Consecrating your altar or sacred space-

Pour 1/3 to half of the sand into the burner, break a coal in half, or use the whole coal. Light the coal and once it is glowing on an edge, place in the burner. Sprinkle bits of your incense, notice how the different herbs, wood chips and resins have different aromas. Ask that the energy from the herbal blend clear your space of stale or unwanted energies.

Light your candle with intention that the properties in the candle refresh and cleanse your energy body. close your eyes and imagine light entering your aura from above with each breathe and clearing your energy with each exhale. Take your selenite wand and pass it over the incense burning on your coal to clear it. Then pass it over your body, along your arms, legs, your front, back and around your head to amplify the aura energy clearing. 

Pass the wand over your sacred space, with the intention of creating a space for clarity, conscious awareness and love. 

Love to you!
