Crystal healing has made a renewal in recent years, and each abundant stone holds unique properties and natural energy that can be used for different purposes. Selenite is the ideal crystal for all kinds of energy clearing — energy cleansing of your body, crystals, and home.
The name Selenite origins from the Greek goddess of the Moon, Selene. You will understand why, when you take a closer look at this high vibrational crystal.
Selenite belongs to the family of gypsum crystals. Gypsum is a soft sulfate mineral and occurs on every continent in the world. One of the more luxurious decorative uses for selenite can be seen in the window panes of famous Santa Sabina in Rome, and one of the most beautiful caves of Selenite appears in the Naica Cave, in Mexico. The Selenite is a crystallized form of gypsum, a soft, but powerful mineral with properties greatly beneficial for the body, home, and other crystals.
Here’s how to use Selenite
Selenite crystals stabilize and balance the emotional body, and removes energy blockages. Try to place a selenite crystal directly on any area of the body that feels sore or tight, for about 20 minutes to bring focus to that specific area, and to support the energy cleansing process.
Selenite is an essential crystal to energetically purify and cleanse the air at home. Place it on the windowsill in any room that you spend a lot of time in such a bedroom, living room, etc. Black Tourmaline is another essential for the home, so selenite is clearing and tourmaline is grounded and together they are balancing.
Selenite is also excellent for clearing and purifying jewelry and can also be used to cleanse the energy of your other stones. If you feel that the energy of a certain stone is less vibrant than it used to be, clear it using selenite.
How to cleanse Selenite
Selenite is self-purifying, but if you still feel that is needed to be cleansed, you can do so with the help of a Sage. It is a very porous mineral and therefore can not withstand water.
Always choose your crystals carefully, and make a cleansing before use. You can easily do so with water (make sure your crystal can withstand water), natural incense such as sage, or with sea salt. You can also make a purification by putting the crystals in moonlight. Try out which method works best for you.
