Stressless with Selenite

Suppose you are seeking clarity, focus, and calm. If you desire to let go of limitations, negativity, and stagnant energy. This high vibration stone offers cleansing and clearing of your space and energy field, giving you a fresh start to acquire Spiritual Growth.  

Selenite's origin derives from the Greek Goddess Selene, who was the goddess of the moon. Selene has powers to give sleep and light the night, controlling time, and, like the moon, she is ever-changing. The connection between the two is the crystal's moon-like glow, allowing mental clarity and overall cleansing.  

Selenite is a delicate, soft crystal that is a form of gypsum. Gypsum is a sulfate mineral composed of calcium sulfate and dihydrate, often mined, as it is the main constituent for many forms of plaster, chalk, and drywall. 

Selenite Crystal

Gypsum is a evaporate mineral, and as marine water evaporates, its dissolved salts begin to form minerals.  

Selenite is iridescent white, looking similar to a silky pearl. It often has striations and has a beautiful glowing appearance. It is essential to handle this crystal with care, as it is a soft form and flakes or scratch easily in its natural state.  

Cleansing with Selenite  

Selenite is the Queen of crystal charging; by magnifying energy, recharging other crystals and cleansing itself. You don't need to activate Selenite before recharging other; it is always at work.  

 

 

It is essential to cleanse your crystals when you first purchase them and regularly after that as your crystals absorb negativity and the healing properties can become blocked. Luckily, cleansing crystals with Selenite is the most effortless practice, mainly because there are MANY Selenite crystals such as plates, bowls, dishes, lamps and even towers.

Place your other crystals on top of Selenite objects or beside them and leave them for 24 hours. It is always best if your crystals are touching the Selenite. Keep in mind; you do not have to cleanse your Selenite as it does this itself. 

Selenite Properties  

  • Selenite can work through energy blockages, making it a fantastic crystal for everyday use and Reiki practitioners. Selenite offers instant feelings of cleansing and recharging when meditating with the crystal-like liquid and moonlight beams. We often hold so much tension and negative energy within our body from past trauma without even noticing. These experiences and their effects on our body can lead to illness, making it crucial to cleanse and clear these blockages.  
  • The crystal has enormous high vibrations, and this, in turn, affects your energy field. It strongly connects with the higher chakras, particularly the Crown Chakra, the centre of higher consciousness. It allows you to elevate, uplift and guides you to a higher frequency by filling your being with light. Not only does it have this higher vibrational effect, but it can be used as a protective crystal from darker, lower frequencies.  
  • Selenite is also a brilliant crystal for cleansing and charging other crystals surrounding it. Its ability to not dull as it absorbs and dissipates negative energy is often used to cleanse and recharge other crystals. This is why many selenite plates, bowls, and lamps are perfect pieces to have close by your crystal collection. Even more brilliantly, Selenite is self-cleansing and doesn't need to be recharged. It doesn't matter how many times you use it; it will still operate with the same powers.

Selenite lamps are popular to have beside your bed or anywhere inside your home to promote inner peace and mental clarity.
