What are the meanings and properties of selenite?
From a metaphysical standpoint, selenite is an extraordinarily powerful purifier and charging stone. For this reason, it’s used to cleanse other crystals, spaces and our bodies. It naturally draws out negative energy and reinforces the essential properties of the target stone, area on our body, or home. By adding selenite as a tool in your crystal playbook, you’ll be able to get the most out of your crystals since their effectiveness will be more sustainable and potent.
How to use selenite?
Charging and/or cleansing your crystals
One of the most popular ways of charging and cleansing crystals is by placing them on a selenite slab, plate or bowl. This form of the mineral is excellent because it exposes the stones on a piece of selenite with a large surface area. It’s also convenient and looks great. The amount of time needed using this method can vary but 24 hours is recommended for a full cycle, so to speak.
Empty headingClearing energy blocks while purifying the mind, body and spirit
- Holding a selenite palm stone while meditating is a simple and effective way to clear pent up negative energy in the body and mind as a whole.
- In the practice of reiki, selenite wands in different shapes and sizes are often used to target specific problem areas on the body.
- Placing a small selenite pyramid on the forehead while laying down is often practiced to help clear an anxious and overwhelmed mind. Seeing as this is the location of the crown chakra, this placement is beneficial for dispersing negative energy in the area. By doing this, it will become easier for you to access your creative talents, manifest your desires, and elevate yourself to a higher level of consciousness.
Protecting your home
Our homes can become quite chaotic with various forms of both positive and negative energy. The varying experiences, people, and arrangements of a space can have a problematic effect on the overall feeling and energy of a home. A pair of bookends on a shelf or a selenite tower on the coffee table can work wonders in absorbing any negative energy and purifying a room or even an entire house. Candleholders are not only efficient for this purpose but they make for a striking piece of home decor. As long as the crystal is in the open air and not tucked behind the furniture or closed up in a drawer, it will help bring balance to its surroundings.
