Selenite is one of the most important tools in many metaphysical wellness worker’s arsenals. Selenite meaning is easy to see when it reflects light, often appearing as a rock fallen direct from the moon. Formed from hydrous calcium sulfate, this mineral belongs to the family of gypsum crystals. Its monoclinic crystal system develops into long columns. Before being polished, selenite can be recognized for its fibrous striations that run down the length of the stone. The selenite crystal forms typically in clay beds, or around hot springs. Due to its classification as an evaporate, selenite healing properties have a tendency to flow in a way similar to water.
What selenite crystal lacks in physical strength, it more than makes up for in metaphysical ability. Selenite healing properties are all about activation and reaching higher planes. It is known for connecting to the third eye, crown, transpersonal and Etheric chakras. Through radiating light energy, it promotes purity and honesty. It forces the person holding it to be honest with themselves. By clearing energy blockages, selenite allows for liquid-like energy fluidity. It can align the chakras and raise awareness to a higher plane.
When connecting with the third eye and crown chakras, the selenite meaning is one of complete positivity and purity. Once the power of the selenite flows into the crown chakra, it will open, clear and activate the energy. The chakras will feel completely purified, and one should experience a liberated sense of self, free of negativity or inhibitions. This is the ideal stone for connecting with spirit guides or guardian angels. Due to its programmability, it is one of the best facilitators for transmitting the advice and information that one is seeking from their guide. It connects people to their highest level of consciousness where they are most open and accepting of symbolic messaging.
It can be used in tandem with other stones to amplify and manipulate the intended effect. One can create a selenite spectrum by laying their selenite wand down and placing a range of tumble stones along it to create a rainbow effect. It is also a great stone for creating energy grids within the home, or even on your yoga mat to boost mental balance while establishing physical balance.
