Selenite Meaning - Selenite Healing Properties



You Need Selenite If...

Does it feel like there’s heavy or dense energy surrounding you, or simply lingering in the air? Does your space feel dark or stuffy? These are signs that there is a build-up of stagnant energy within your energy field or environment. It’s time to clear the energy and raise the vibration, and a Selenite crystal is the perfect crystal for the job.

An Introduction to Selenite Crystal Healing Properties

Selenite is one of the most important tools in any energy worker or crystal lover’s arsenal. At Energy Muse, we like to refer to the Selenite crystal properties as “liquid light” because through clearing energy blockages, Selenite allows for liquid-like energy fluidity. Its extremely high vibration floods your energy field with the highest vibrations of light, uplifting your spirit and guiding you to an elevated state of being. Not only does it have this powerful effect on you, but it also has a similar effect on your crystals and your environment. A Selenite crystal is the ultimate energy tool to purify, clear, cleanse, and uplift your home, plus everyone and everything in it.

Because it is one of the most powerful and effective tools to cleanse and charge crystals, it’s worthwhile to dedicate one of your Selenite stones specifically to this purpose. If you feel that the energy of a certain stone is dull or less vibrant than it used to be, clear it using Selenite. If you have a large Selenite plate, you can lay your other stone on top of the stone overnight to recharge. If you have a Selenite wand, you can set your other stone beside it for the same duration of time until the energy has been rejuvenated.

Besides energy clearing, the Selenite crystal healing properties are also powerful for other spiritual and energetic practices like meditation, reiki, breath work, yoga, and cord-cutting. For meditation, we suggest holding one Selenite Harmonizer in each hand to bring balance to both sides of the body. You can also place a Selenite crystal stone over your chest to breathe deeper and raise your energetic vibration. 

To use Selenite as part of a reiki practice, you’ll need both a wand and smaller stones to place at the chakra centers. The wand should be used before you begin the reiki to clear the subject’s negativity and tension. Hold the wand above their body and bring it down from head to toe moving along the spine. After the reiki, close the session by placing the small stones on the chakra points to align and balance their harmony.

History & Lore

Selenite is studied in the Naica mine in Chihuahua, Mexico, home to a magnificent cavern filled with these white crystals. In this mine 300 meters below the surface, Selenite forms in enormous crystals the size of telephone poles or redwood trees. Also known as satin spar gypsum, Selenite has shed a light on the origins of life on Earth. Prior to 2004, gypsum was only thought to exist on the planet Earth. However, it was confirmed to also be found on Mars in 2004, which hints at the presence of water on Mars, and thus the possibility of life. 

In mythology, Selenite was associated with Selene, the Greek goddess of the Moon. This is also where this crystal gets its name. 

Origin & Regionality

Selenite is found in Mexico, Morocco, the United States and many other places around the globe.

The Selenite crystal stone meaning is all about purification, clearing, and positive energy. The soft white appearance of the stone is a perfect reflection of its gentle but highly effective energy, which emits white light and high vibrations. Whether you are clearing your own energy field, your environment, or your crystals, the Selenite crystal healing properties are perfectly suited to remove unwanted energy and replace it with light and positive energy. 

The Selenite crystal meaning is connected to the higher chakras, namely the crown chakra which is the center of higher consciousness. Through this association, Selenite allows you to elevate your energy and raise your vibration, aligning you with a higher frequency. By filling your entire being with light, you can block out lower vibrational energy to protect your spirit. In this way, Selenite can be used as a protective stone to shield you from darker energy.  

Energy Clearing

You may not realize it, but you pick up a lot of energy throughout your day and your lifetime, and not all of it is good energy. If you think about your energy field like your house, dust, grime, and dirt can build up over time and create a layer of darkness around your home. Similarly, the energy you pick up can dim your own energy, which is why energy clearing is so important for your spiritual, emotional and energetic well-being. 

The Selenite crystal meaning is highly effective for clearing and cleansing your energy, as well as the energy of your environment and even your other crystals. The Selenite crystal stone meaning is so effective because it has the ability to both remove lower vibrational energy and recharge whatever it is clearing with higher vibrations. 

When you are using a Selenite crystal for clearing your own personal energy, it is important to keep it close to your body. You can either place it over your chest or use it in a downward sweeping motion by hovering it 2-3 inches above your skin and brushing away the negative energy. Both methods are equally effective in cleansing your energy field and your mind, body and spirit to restore your natural state of being. 

After working with a Selenite crystal stone for energy clearing, you will feel brighter, lighter, happier, and uplifted. 

Plugging Into the Light 

Because of its white color and its extremely high vibration, the Selenite crystal meaning is one of the most powerful sources of light available for you to plug into. By connecting with the Selenite crystal healing properties on a daily basis, you can brighten your own inner light to a point where it is much more difficult for darkness to enter. Not only does this elevate your energy, but it also allows you to create a bubble of light around you for energetic protection. 

In addition to daily energetic maintenance, the Selenite crystal meaning is powerful for an on-the-spot treatment when you find yourself in a lower vibrational state. By plugging into the light from your Selenite crystal, you can uplift your spirit and rise above the darker energy that may have been bringing you down.
