Selenite is such an amazing crystal with lots of great benefits and qualities. Selenite is a form of gypsum and it’s named after the Greek Moon goddess, Selene.
Selenite can help balance and cleanse our entire energy body. A great way to do this is to take a selenite wand (like one pictured above) and simply scan your body with it. Hold the crystal several inches from your body while you sort of sweep the air around you. I personally like to envision a white light emanating from the selenite and strengthening my aura.
You can do the selenite aura cleanse each morning, anytime you’ve been in a large group of people or whenever you feel a bit drained, energetically.
Selenite is a very cleansing and high vibrational crystal and is one of the few crystals that never need to be cleansed. In fact, selenite can be used to cleanse other crystals! Simply place your crystals needing to be cleansed or charged, next to the selenite for a bit. You could also do the energetic aura cleanse with your crystals. Just swipe the selenite around the crystal you want to cleanse.
I like to keep a small piece of selenite near my card decks as well, to keep them nice and cleansed. Similar to cleansing your aura and crystals, you can use selenite to cleanse your tarot and oracle decks as well.
Selenite is a very soft stone, so be careful not to get it wet. But since you don’t have to cleanse this crystal, there’s really not much of a reason to get it wet in the first place.
Physically, selenite is excellent for headaches and migraines! Lay down and place a piece of selenite near the top of your head. You may even like to place a piece of amethyst on your third eye. Lay there quietly with your eyes closed for about ten minutes. I suggest placing a grounding stone near your feet as well, such as smoky quartz or black tourmaline. And don’t lay there longer than ten minutes. As I mentioned, selenite is very high vibe and laying with it at your crown Chakra for an extended period of time can cause that Chakra to open too widely and may cause some dizziness for you.
Another physical benefit of selenite is for sore muscles. Since it’s so good at breaking up blocked energy, it can help loosen muscles. If you’re feeling sore or tight, just run the selenite over the area or let it sit on that area for a bit.
Establishing a daily spiritual practice may seem like a daunting task to accomplish. I mean, we are busy as human beings. Jobs, family, responsibilities and more. But that’s all the more reason to start incorporating a daily spiritual practice into your life.
In Episode 2 of The Goddess Life Podcast we discuss the benefits of having a daily spiritual practice and why it’s important. We also talk about simple and easy things you can do for your spiritual practice. Spoiler alert! It doesn’t have to be time consuming or elaborate.

Cypress 10 drops
Cypress is good for meditation to help you visualize what you desire. Cypress also grows in New Orleans with the beautiful moss hanging from it. Granted, the cypress this Oil is from isn’t the same genus as what grows in New Orleans, but still.
Myrrh 8 drops
Myrrh is a very spiritual Oil, and one of the reasons I want to go to New Orleans is for the spirituality and religion. Myrrh is also a great Oil for money and prosperity. Gotta have that cash flow to make it on my trip!
Cedarwood 3 drops
Cedarwood is helpful when creating sacred spaces, and New Orleans is definitely a sacred space. Also helpful with abundance.
I mixed these oils in a 10ml roller bottle topped off with fractionated coconut oil and also added in black obsidian and amethyst crystal chips.
Black obsidian to ground my dreams into reality and amethyst for spirituality and because it’s basically awesome in everything.
I also added in some dried Spanish moss. When I think of New Orleans I always envision the Spanish moss hanging from the trees.
I’ll be using this oil daily, especially during visualization. Whether it’s closing my eyes and meditating on being in New Orleans or while browsing the internet looking at New Orleans while envisioning and really feeling myself there.
You could use this technique for any trip you want to go! Simply mix in oils that resonate with the location for you!

Whether you’re using visualization, setting up a crystal grid or working a spell, it helps to use things that correspond to the energy frequency of prosperity. In this post I’ll share an easy to reference list of prosperity Correspondences.
- Green aventurine

Herbs and essential oils:
When creating an oil blend, crystal grid or doing a spell, it helps to use the energy of specific days to amplify your workings. Each day of the week has specific energy that corresponds to various topics, planets, color and more.
For instance, when creating an oil blend for love, you may choose to create this blend on a Friday, which is the day of love (energetically).
Perhaps you want to do a spell for protection, Sunday would be your day.
Having legal issues? You could set up a crystal grid on a Thursday for best results.

When working magick and spells or preparing for a ritual or ceremony, working with similar Correspondances can really amp up the energy of your working. In this post, I will share with you Correspondances that correlate with the moon.
The cycles of the moon play a big factor in it’s energy. While I’m a big believer that magick and ritual can be performed at any moon phase, there’s nothing wrong with waiting until the moon is in a particular phase before conducting your ceremony or spell.
- Waxing Moon is when the moon is getting larger. This is the time after the new moon and prior to the full moon. This is a good energy for thing you want to increase in your life (think money, love, job).
- Waning Moon is when the moon is getting smaller. After the full moon and before the new moon. This is good energy for things you want to remove from your life. Things like bad habits, or even people.
- Full Moon is a very powerful energy. It really amplifies any workings making them stronger. This is also a good time to begin to think of things you need to release from your life.
- New Moon energy is good for planning what you’d like to bring into your life. What do you really want to manifest?
While the moon does travel through each of the zodiac signs every couple of days, the moon is connected to the Cancer zodiac sign. When the moon is in this sign, the energy is doubly amplified.
Here are some basic Correspondances for the moon:
- The element of water
- Moonstone and selenite crystals
- Sandalwood, jasmine and lemon essential oils
- Psychic work
- Feminine energy
Spring is all about new life! New endeavors and manifesting! Here’s a fun and easy ritual you can do for Ostara and the first day of spring! Even your kids can take part!
🌸 Take an egg (a symbol of fertility..seed..manifesting) and write on it what you are going to be manifesting in the coming months. Write it in the positive, like it’s already happening. For example, I am successful…not, I will be successful. Claim that dream!
🌸 Next, bury your egg outside (or in a pot) with seedlings or a new plant on top. And voila! Literally planting your fertility seed of manifestation!!
🌸I personally like to up the ante with essential oils. I breathe in the aroma while I hold the egg and visualize all my goals coming into fruition. Elevation to keep those vibes HIGH, Orange for success and confidence and creativity and patchouli for prosperity and a little grounding.
