Once people learn about the properties of selenite, they usually make sure to add it to their crystal collection. Selenite is an unassuming stone. It doesn’t have a cool crystal shape. It’s opaque and not clear. It can be a bit fragile – don’t put it in water – and it is soft. That’s probably why it gets overlooked a lot.
For me, selenite’s greatest property is its ability to clear away and keep away negative energy. It is a wonderful stone to use to clear your other stones. When your stones get a bit dull feeling or looking, that’s when it is time to clear them. Putting them on a piece of selenite will clear their energy and get them back to their normal sparkly selves. The wonderful thing about selenite is that it is “self-cleaning,” meaning it doesn’t need to be cleared after it clears something else. It will benefit from charging in the moonlight every so often, but it will still happily do its job of clearing without constant charging.
You may know about using selenite for clearing of stones, but it can help with much more. In 2014, when I first learned about the amazing properties of selenite, I placed a piece in my pocket one day and was amazed how much better my day went at work. Since then I have always carried a piece in my pocket, and selenite has traveled with me all over the world! I also use selenite to clear students and clients before they come in for a class or healing session. Using a big stick of selenite, I “wand” people down, kind of like a spiritual TSA. It really helps people to remove whatever energies or emotions that they have picked up prior to going into a healing session without the need to burn anything (sage or palo santo) or use sprays that might bother someone. My office at the Sagewood Center has selenite in the corners to keep it clear. I have several slabs of selenite that I place stones and card decks that I have used, jewelry that I have worn (especially if it has stones in it), or whatever might need clearing.
In addition to clearing, selenite brings clarity of mind and deep peace. It will help you to access angelic consciousness and higher guidance as well. I use a palm stone of selenite when doing mediumship, card readings and messages from guides and Angels. It’s such an awesome stone!
Selenite can be found in a number of forms from raw chunks, slabs or sticks to polished stones, towers, candle holders or selenite lamps. You can usually easily find it at local crystal shops and retailers, or you can always purchase through a reputable source online. I hope you give selenite a try for yourself. I think you will be so glad that you did.
