Selenite

Selenite is a crystalline variety of the mineral, a beautiful white non-transparent Gypsum. It is a very soft mineral which can be easily scratched. Selenite are common in location such as Mexico, Russia, Morocco, Australia and the USA.

The name Selenite is related to the Greek word meaning “moon”, and also being ‘package’ to relate with the Greek Goddess Selene, who was the Goddess of the Moon.

Selenite is often associated with Crown Chakra. Therefore, Selenite provides for clarity of the mind, it helps one increases awareness of self and surroundings. As it aids in openining the crown chakras, it influences the angelic consciousness and higher spiritual guidance.

Selenite is a calming stone that instils peace and is often use in meditation or spiritual work. It assists judgement and insight.

In Flying Star Feng Shui or Xuan Kong Flying Stars (玄空飞星), Selenite is effective as remedy or for clearing and cleansing one’s energy, as well as the energy of your environment or sectors (i.e. 2 Black, 5 Yellow, 7 Scarlet). Therefore, besides the conventional 3-legged toad, mystical creatures (i.e. Qilin, PiXiu), wind chimes, copper coins and salt water cures; users could consider this graceful alternative so that it doesn’t affect the overall theme of the house or make the house look like a Temple or Chinese Restaurant.

Do take note that Selenite dislike contact with water. These delicate white stones may dissolve when in contact with water or become discoloured.

As it is valid, for one who have serious faults; or they are dizzy, muddled and becomes forgetful the moment one turn around; or they are often troubled when there is nothing wrong; or they are discouraged when they see a gentleman; or they are unhappy when they hear the truth; or they are beneficial to others yet suffers from resentment; or the night dream is upside down, or even vain words and lose one’s will; both are guilty of sins, and they are like this, that is, one must work hard, give up the old ways and try to renew & make anew.

About Hurts and Healing

If we have truly done what we believe as best effort in the moment; then there can’t be anything any better.

In BaZi (八字) destiny consultation, practitioners wears the hat of emotional rubbish bin or recycling truck. Often needs to lend a listening ear to Querent’s woes and feelings. Helping people reconcile with the hurts of life, provide resolution and help Querent to move forward. This in 1 paragraph; sharing my 2 cents worth. I hope this experience helps fellow practitioners frame and anchor these 3 reality, so that the wound now becomes the place where the light gets in.

“The hurts of our lives are link to the perception of the hurt. The person we blame for the hurt did what they need to do in their life. And, the only way for us to be hurt is for us to compare the moment of the hurt to another moment in our lives. When the moment is all there is, and there is no past nor future we can compare with, this moment is all it is and feels very different and loses its hold against us. Therefore, emotions are closely link with the expectation and attachment of our past.”

Oneness with all that is, a journey that never was.

For those in my generation, you would perhap have watched The Truman Show (Jim Carrey, 1998). Some 20 years later, reflecting on this movie. The Truman Show can perhaps inspire us towards spiritual awakening and be a seeker of truth.

Just like Truman’s existence in the movie set, our human existence could also have been made up. Perhaps, our creator up there is watching us like a drama. Or, our existence are merely tools or characters in a game simulation with higher concentration of quantum particles that contains human consciousness called soul; trying to overcome the programs in order to develop some possible solution for the creator outside the simulation.

As we overcome “The World” and our Oneness is restored, the ego is forgotten. It is as if it never existed, because in Truth it never did, right along with “The World”, Oneness with all that is, a journey that never was.

Metaphysics (易学)

“The Universe”

“The Universe” is a beautiful thing. It’s basically energy that is responding to our will and most of the time we don’t realize it. Because, we don’t understand that we get to choose what sort of energy we give off, receive and surround ourselves with. We blame it on Bad Luck, Bad Feng Shui and even Destiny. For example, if we going around feeling like a failure, then failing is going to be our story. If we going around feeling happy and contented even with small things, then we will continue along that pathway that spirals us upwards.

“The Universe” is unlimited and has much to offer us, but we “live” in our world of limitations (or perhaps, we make up our world with limitations). It sounds crazy when you think about it, but we’re led to believe that we can’t have what we want and even that we can lose everything we do have. “The world” is nothing but an illusion. By choosing to raise our vibration, we are making a decision to move into a place that is filled with unlimited potential. We’re choosing to accept the unlimited energy “The Universe” is willing to offer us.

Love, “The Universe”

Elementals, alluring yet difficult to work with. There is always more than meets the eye and this definitely applies to elementals. If you have ever watched a fire burning, clouds formation, thunderstorms, river flowing or even the night sky and been transfixed by it, you have probably fallen under the power of elementals.

Some people have a natural affinity to make contacts with elementals which may be related to your astrological sign rather easily.
