Selenite is a variety of the mineral gypsum, named after Selene, the goddess of the moon in Greek mythology. Oftentimes referred to as “liquid light” because of the way in which it works as a gentle yet effective healing tool and shifter of stagnant energies.
Sought out for its high-vibrational properties it is capable of flooding your personal energy field with an abundance of light, clarity, and calm. In doing so, you are transported to a higher state of consciousness, divine inspiration and become receptive to messages from the universe that will aid you in your journey of personal growth and self-exploration.
We recommend meditating while holding your selenite crystal. This allows for a conscious and focused practice that ensures you are hyper-receptive to the positive influence of its high vibration. Meditation, while being an exercise in clearing the mind, is an active investment in the restoration of your energy field.
A selenite crystal can live in a variety of places in your home. As selenite is associated with the higher chakras and by association, mental clarity and emotional lightness, we recommend placing your selenite wand on your desk or in the room in which you work. You may also choose to keep your selenite in your bedroom. Place on your dresser, nightstand, under your bed, or on your windowsill to benefit from its gentle and calming capabilities throughout the night.
Cleansing and recharging your selenite wand from time to time is important. You can do this with a smudge stick by encircling the selenite in it’s smoke. You may choose to employ the balancing sounds of a singing bowl or a bell. The frequencies emitted by these sacred instruments of sound can effectively recharge any crystal. The light of the sun as well as the full moon or a bowl of dry salt will also do an equally good job of cleansing your crystals.
