Introduction to Selenite
Selenite is one of the most important tools in many metaphysical wellness worker’s arsenals. It is an abundant stone known as Satin Spar because of the milky sheen that illuminates from the surface. While selenite is most often found in countries such as Australia, Greece, Mexico and the United States, those who seek to specifically profit from selenite healing properties should look for the long and clear selenite stones that come out of Mexico.
Meaning Of Selenite
Not known for its strength, stone selenite slabs are still often used as a light-bearing element in home decoration. One of the most luxurious ornamental uses for selenite can be seen in the famous Santa Sabina in Rome, whose white windows are made entirely of selenite. Selenite properties such as its lack of durability make it useful for other purposes as well. With a Mohs score of only 2, selenite’s softness, flexibility and reflective qualities allow it to serve as an ideal material in the production of cement, wall, some plasters and soil conditioning.
This stone received its name from the Greek goddess of the Moon, Selene. This selenite meaning is easy to see when reflecting light, often appearing as a rock falling directly from the moon. Consisting of calcium hydrosulfate, this mineral belongs to the family of gypsum crystals. Its monoclinic crystal system develops in long columns. Before being polished, selenite can be recognized for its fibrous streaks that descend along the length of the stone. Selenite Crystal is typically formed in clay beds, or around Hot Springs. Due to its classification as evaporation, the healing properties of selenitis have a tendency to flow in a similar way to water.
Healing Properties Of Selenite
What the selenite Crystal lacks in physical strength, it compensates more than in metaphysical capacity. The healing properties of Selenitis are all about activation and reaching the upper floors. It is known for connecting to the third eye, crown, transpersonal and Etheric chakras. Through the irradiation of light energy, it promotes purity and honesty. It forces the person who cares about him to be honest with himself. By eliminating energy blocks, selenite allows a fluidity of energy similar to liquid. It can align the chakras and raise awareness to a higher plane.
When connecting with the third eye and chakra of the crown, the selenite meaning is one of complete positivity and purity. Once the power of selenite flows into the crown chakra, it will open, lighten and activate the energy. Chakras will feel completely purified, and one should experience a liberated sense of self, free from negativity or inhibitions. This is the ideal stone to connect with spiritual guides or guardian angels. Due to its programmability, it is one of the best facilitators to convey the advice and information you are looking for from their guide. It connects people to their highest level of consciousness, where they are more open and accept symbolic messages.
It can be used in tandem with other stones to amplify and manipulate the expected effect. You can create a spectrum of selenite by laying their selenite wand down and putting a series of tumble stones along it to create a rainbow effect. It is also a great stone for creating energy grids inside your home, or even on your yoga mat to increase mental balance while establishing physical balance. Wearing selenite jewelry, such as a necklace with a selenite pendant can ward off toxic energy and prevent light from being sucked into energy vampires.
There are several ways to use selenite healing properties in rituals and meditation. If you meditate on your own, you can use a selenite wand on your chest, with one end pointing to the crown chakra and the other pointing to the root chakra. Repeat a mantra, like: “I take the light, I’m the light.”This will help you encapsulate the essence of the meaning of selenite.
To use selenite properties as part of a Reiki practice, you will need both a wand and smaller stones to place in the chakra points. The wand should be used before starting reiki to eliminate the negativity and tension of the subject. Hold the wand above the body and take it down from head to toe that move along the spine. After reiki, close the session by placing small stones on the chakra points to align and balance their harmony.
Selenite can also be used to clean the energy of other stones. If you feel that the energy of a certain stone is boring or less vibrant than once, clarify it using selenite. If you have a large selenite block, you can lay the other stone on top of the block at night to recharge. If you have a selenite wand, you can set the other stone next to it for the same duration of time until the energy has been rejuvenated.
