Today I want to talk about the crystal – Selenite. You may remember I mentioned this stone in my LAST POST on energy clearing. So today I thought I’d follow up that post with getting more into this wonderful tool for clearing.
What is Selenite?
Selenite is part of the quartz family, a crystalized form of gypsum, often referred to as ‘liquid light’. Selenite has the ability to open our crown, third eye and higher chakras, making it an excellent tool to use with any spiritual cleansing.
Selenite is found in quite a few countries such as: Greece, Mexico. and the U.S.A.. It is associated with the moon’s lunar cycles, originally named for the Greek Goddess Selene.
Selenite is known for its connection with our third eye chakra. Light energy radiates through this stone, promoting honesty and purity, forcing the holder of the stone to become open and receiving, thus helping with clearing energy blocks by allowing energy fluidity to promote raised awareness. Selenite is a wonderful divination tool for connecting with spirit guides and guardian angels. Wearing Selenite jewelry is helpful to ward off receiving negative energies and keeps the energy sucking vampires from stealing our energy.
How to Use
A good piece of Selenite to use for clearing is in the form of a wand. Wands typically are about 6 to 8 inches long. The wand has more than one use. You can create a space for yourself where you like to spend time and place the wand along side any other tumbled crystals you have that you feel empowers you in a dish or a bowl and keep them near to keep good energy in the room. The wand will keep your other stones charged at the same time because Selenite is a self-cleansing stone and has the energy to cleanse other stones. Therefore, you wouldn’t have to keep cleansing your stones after taking in negative energies if the Selenite were on top of the other stones.
You can use the wand to help with meditation. Make sure one end points toward your crown chakra and the other to the root chakra (vertically), then begin your chosen mantra.
One of the best uses for this wand is for removing negative energies on your person by holding the wand and circling it around your body from head to toe. Again, hold the wand vertically and begin by circling around the top of your head and continuing downwards the length of your body down to the feet. This is known as brushing because the energy cleansing wand picks off the negativity energy that has clung to us, almost like a lint brush.
You can purchase Selenite in many forms. Some common forms are in chunks, long bars and smaller stones. Some people like to keep chunks of Selenite in some corners of a room to keep good energy or place smaller pieces on window sills. Keeping a piece under your bed is said to promote better sleep and recharge yourself.
How to Cleanse Selenite
Selenite is known as a self-cleansing stone, and has the power of cleansing other stones when Selenite is placed upon or beside them. But, like anything else, it still doesn’t hurt to cleanse your Selenite stones once in awhile if you wish, especially if you’ve been using it a lot to clear. There are two ways to cleanse Selenite. You can light a sage smudgestick and wave it over the stone or you can cleanse it like you would any other stone by leaving it on a window sill for a day to recharge by sun and moonlight. But never use another common method that is effective for many other stones by using water. Selenite is a porous stone and it must be kept away from water.
In conclusion, you can choose to place a piece of Selenite wherever you feel you need to keep good energy flowing. Below I’ve included a great short video from the Energy Muse, which will give you a good idea of what Selenite looks like and how to use it to clear negative energy.
