What Selenite crystal lacks in physical strength, it more than makes up for in metaphysical ability. Selenite healing properties are all about activation and reaching higher planes. It is known for connecting to the third eye, crown, transpersonal and Etheric chakras.
Through radiating light energy, it promotes purity and honesty. It forces the person holding it to be honest with themselves. By clearing energy blockages, selenite allows for liquid-like energy fluidity. It can align the chakras and raise awareness to a higher plane.
When connecting with the third eye and crown chakras, the selenite meaning is one of complete positivity and purity. Once the power of the selenite flows into the crown chakra, it will open, clear and activate the energy. The chakras will feel completely purified, and one should experience a liberated sense of self, free of negativity or inhibitions.
The gemstone selenite is most closely associated with the crown chakra, which represents wisdom and spirituality, as well as the third eye chakra. The colorless beauty and translucency of selenite is often attributed to purity and peace in both metaphysical beliefs and color theory. Selenite is excellent to use when meditating or trying to achieve mental clarity, as it is believed to compel the person holding it to be honest with themselves.
Selenite is considered a high-energy crystal that vibrates at a high frequency. Despite being an incredibly soft stone, so soft a fingernail can scratch it, selenite gemstones are believed to be a stone of protection that wards the mind. It is commonly used by crystal practitioners as a way to cleanse the body, mind and spirit of negativity and self-limitation--as well as cleansing other gemstones being used in healing practices.
Selenite is not a traditional birthstone, but is associated with the zodiac sign of Cancer.
