Meditation to connect with Selene
Light a candle, put a oil diffuser or incense and some relaxing music, sit and close your eyes. Take three deep breaths and relax. Hold your intention in connecting to Selene, the Moon Goddess. You could say this in your head three times, ‘My intention is to connect with Selene.’
Imagine you are in a forest and its night time. Although its dark, the full moon is bright and lights up a path. You start to walk this path between the trees, making your way gradually, noticing the sound of owls and rustles in the bushes. The path takes you to a circular clearing surrounded by trees and the full moon is directly above you shining down.
You feel this is where Selene will be, so you decide to stand under the full moon, close your eyes and soak up its beautiful cleansing energy. As you are doing this, you hear a voice say ‘Welcome Child, I have been expecting you.’ You open your eyes and see a beautiful woman is standing in front of you. It is Selene. You say hello and thank her for connecting. She smiles and embraces you. So full of love and light, she starts to talk to you.
Take this time to listen to what she has to say and to ask any questions.
Once you have finished communicating, you thank her. She says ‘ You are welcome child. I am always here for you to connect. Remember I am the Moon, anytime you feel you need me, look to the Moon and know I am here with you.’ She embraces you once more and then floats up towards the Moon and disappears into the light.
Feeling peaceful and when you are ready, take three deep breaths and come back to the room.
Write down your experience. What did she say to you? Did she have a message? Were all your questions answered? Did anything else happen?
