Selenite – Crystal healing Part One

January 28, 2008

From Crystal Enlightenment by Katrina Raphaell

“Natural high quality Selenite crystals possess one of the clearest transparency qualities found in the mineral kingdom. This degree of clarity reflects a pure beam of white light into any environment that the crystal is placed in. When Selenite crystals are used as personal meditation pieces, they will bring into conscious understanding one’s own sense of inner truth. Therefore Selenite can be used to calm and clear troubled or confused states of mind. White is the colour vibration associated with the crown chakra. Selenite can be used in meditation or crystal healings to activate this highest of energy centres. A small Selenite crystal can be placed on top of the head to stimulate brain activity and expand the awareness. Selenite symbolises the clearest state of mind attainable, in which all thoughts entering the consciousness originate from the source and are direct reflections if pure spirit. Selenite is a crystal that can be used for the advancement of the mind and mental powers. It does not serve much purpose in healing the denser physical or emotional bodies.”

From Crystal Power by Ken and Joules Taylor

“Selenite’s cool white beauty is excellent as a focus for meditation. Named for the moon goddess Selene, this crystal symbolises both change and predictability, the steady, regular phases of the moon and this satellite’s effect on the earth.”

From Crystal Decoder by Berenice Watt

“Selenite is one of the best stones with which to bring about a rapid shift of energy. It can quickly disperse accumulations of negativity on the aura, and will remove blockages and stagnant energy from the body. Selenite also brings flexibility, spiritual insight and creativity. It can be relaxing and eases bodily tension.”

From the Crystal Bible by Judy Hall

“Translucent selenite has a very fine vibration and brings clarity of mind, opening the crown and higher crown charkas and accessing angelic consciousness and higher guidance. Pure selenite is a link to the light body, helping to anchor it in the earth vibration. Selenite is a calm stone that instils great peace and is excellent for meditation of spiritual work. Telepathy is enhanced through each person holding a piece of pure-vibration selenite. The purest translucent white selenite has an ethereal quality and is said to inhabit the place between light and matter. And ancient stone, it is nevertheless one of the most powerful crystals for the new vibrations on earth. Selenite can be used to form a protective grid around a house, creating a safe and quiet space that does not allow outside influences in – use internally in the corners of the house. A large piece of selenite placed in the house ensures a peaceful atmosphere. Selenite wands can be used to detach entities from the aura or preventing anything external from influencing the mind.

Carrying the imprint of all that has happened in the world, selenite reaches other lives and is very useful for checking on progress made and for accessing the plan fro the present life from the between-lives state. It pinpoints lessons and issues that are still being worked upon and shows how they can best be resolved. It can be used for scrying, to see the future or to ascertain what has happened in the past. Psychologically selenite assists judgement and insight. Mentally, it clears confusion and aids in seeing the deeper picture. It brings about a conscious understanding of what has been occurring at the subconscious level. This is a powerful disperser and stabilizer for erratic emotions.”

Added notes from me

“Selenite is a wonderful stone for clarity, meditation and concentration – the perfect stone to have by when studying or making life-changing decisions. A large piece is excellent for scrying in, as the opalescent folds within in tend to look like a veil, which can be lifted with concentration to see what needs to be seen. A more translucent piece of selenite can be used to look through and see what is real, much as a fairy stone can be used. This is particularly useful when meditating on decisions – look at photos or documents magnified by Selenite to help see the truth behind them.

I keep a large piece of Selenite in my family room to help instil a sense of peace and harmony. It does need cleaning regularly though – in sea salt or moonlight or earth – Selenite will melt away in water. It responds best under a full moon. I find it very calming to have tumbled or egg shaped pieces of Selenite to roll in my hands when meditating or when I need to calm down. It helps to clear away unnecessary thought and focus on the issues at hand. It also opens your mind to a broader picture, to see beyond yourself and also to see the truth beyond the lies we build up around ourselves.

In my crystal oracle, Selenite means clear sight – getting to the truth of things – and also to centre my thoughts and actions and clear away the dross.

It is certainly one of my most favourite stones.”
