All About Selenite
Selenite is one of the most powerful self-care tools, and it can cleanse your space and crystals as well. Selenite is a soft, white mineral that has a crystalline structure. Some of its properties include purification and protection from negative energy, which makes selenite useful for cleansing crystals, auras, spaces and more!
Selenite can be used as a substitute for sage or other culturally appropriative "smudging" practices that involve burning resins such as sage or sweetgrass in order to cleanse one's space or person of negative energy.
Properties of selenite.
It's called "selenite" because it looks like moonstone but with crystals instead of holes in them - so they look like "seleno-" or moon-like rocks ("lithos," meaning stone). Selenites are made up of both water and silicon dioxide.
Benefits of selenite.
Selenite is a powerful healer. It can be used in many ways to heal both physical and emotional wounds. Selenite is also particularly helpful for healing past life trauma, including soul loss or body memories that have been carried over into this lifetime.
Selenite is an excellent stone to use when you are feeling low energy or depressed, as it will help to raise your vibration and bring more joy into your life. Having selenite around can help to clear away any negative emotions or feelings that may be holding you back from reaching your full potential!
Selenite acts like a prism, reflecting all of the negative energy around us back on itself so we don't have to take it in anymore! This makes selenite perfect for cleansing crystals, your space, and your aura because they need lots of clearing themselves sometimes too!
How to cleanse crystals with selenite.
One of the most important steps in crystal use is cleansing. Every crystal will absorb energy from your environment, as well as from your own body, meaning that if you don’t cleanse them regularly, they’ll be carrying negative vibrations and won't be able to operate the way they should.
Selenite is one of the best crystals for cleansing crystals because it’s so soft that you can use it directly on your stones without any risk of damaging them. All you need to do is gently rub the selenite over each stone while visualizing a bright white light or positive thoughts flowing into their centers (this doesn’t have to be anything fancy—just “I love this stone!” or whatever comes naturally).
How to cleanse your aura with selenite.
Selenite is an excellent crystal to cleanse your aura. It has a very high vibration and can be used to cleanse any space or person in a matter of minutes.
To cleanse yourself with selenite:
Hold a piece of selenite in your hand and visualize a white light flowing through it into your body, filling every cell with healing energy
Place the selenite over your heart chakra (the center of love) for 30 seconds or more
Place it over your third eye (the center of spiritual wisdom) for 30 seconds or more.
Now, hold the selenite in front of you, and visualize a bright white light surrounding you from head to toe, filling every cell with healing energy
How to cleanse your space with selenite.
Selenite is a great way to cleanse your space ethically since it doesn't require the use of sage or incense (and therefore doesn't contribute to cultural appropriation).
Place selenite crystals in each corner of your room and on top of dressers and desks. You can also place them at the entrance of rooms where you spend the most time, such as your bedroom or bathroom. If you have mirrors in these spaces, place selenite directly in front of those as well!
