Many years ago I was introduced to crystals as an alternative energy healing modality. I thought they were beautiful and decorative but didn’t really think they could make a difference in my wellness journey. I kind of brushed them to the side and pursued other methods. But, the more I read about crystals, the more intrigued I’ve become. Their unique and special properties are little powerhouses that can have a profound effect on your life. The newest crystal to enter my home is Selenite.
Selenite is a pretty, lustrous, pearly white and translucent crystal that vibrates at a high rate. It’s a form of gypsum that you can find in various colors – green, golden yellow, orange, peachy colors, and slate blue, but I personally love the opaque white. It can also be found in abundance almost globally in various shapes and sizes. It’s named after the Greek Goddess Selene who is the goddess of the moon. That makes sense as the Selenite resembles the color and characteristics of the moon.
Selenite has fine grooves and striations that act as a transmitter and direct energy from outside sources. It’s one of those high vibrational baseline crystals that every home needs. Its benefits and attributes seem limitless. Selenite is great for removing energy blocks, stagnant energy, negative energy from our bodies, and for cleansing our chakras. It can be used to cleanse your aura, crystals jewelry, and remove any blocked and/or bad energy from crystals and gemstones plus magnify their energy many times over.
Selenite can bring clarity of mind, awaken and increase our telepathic abilities, enhance our daily meditation practice, and shield us from outside influences. It’s also said that it can activate dormant abilities from past lives and opens our crown chakra which allows access to the angelic realm where we can ask for guidance.
Selenite is self-cleaning, so it doesn’t need to be cleaned like other crystals. It can recharge itself and other stones. It’s easy to use, just place a piece of this energetic crystal in any room you feel needs energy cleansing.
Use a selenite wand as an eraser to cleanse your aura. Start at the top of your head and slowly bring the crystal wand down your body while visualizing negative energy being drawn out of you. If you have an ache or pain, place a piece of selenite on the inflicted area and leave on for about 15 minutes or longer if you feel a wonderful vibration. For instance, if you have a headache, place a piece on your forehead. Many claim it works very quickly. You can also sit with a piece of selenite under your feet. You will feel Earth’s energy which will rebalance and restore your energy.
If you’re new to crystals like me, starting your own collection is exciting and life-changing. As I learn the profound wellness information about various crystals, I will purchase a few pieces and put them to use. First, you must cleanse them, then hold them and set an intention. Then give your crystal a purpose and program them to help you in specific areas of your life. As I get to know my crystals and their attributes, I cherish them all the more.
