Connect To Divine Light For Personal Transformation

Written By Liz Oakes

Selenite embodies a high vibration energy that works to help you to bring light down from the higher realms into the physical body, to create personal transformation.

The white or transparent crystals have a strong vibration that may open the crown chakra and the soul star chakra. This will assist you to contact the Divine Mind and to access the Angelic realm.

Where Is It From? Selenite Meaning

Selenite has been found in a large number of locations, including Mexico, Russia, Morocco, Greece, Poland, Germany, France, England, Australia and the USA.  

Its color may be pure white, transparent, orange, peach, grey-blue, green, brown and bright golden yellow, like the cluster shown in the image above.

There are a couple of meanings for the name Selenite. The most well known relates to the Greek word meaning "moon", but it is also related to the Greek Goddess Selene, who was the goddess of the moon.

This related to the way that there was a reflection of color within the first stones being looked at, and this was the color of the moon. 

Beautiful white non-transparent Gypsum selenite crystals, as well as the partly transparent stones commonly come from Mexico. These are popular as they can be shaped into many uses for healing.

Wonderful flat pieces of optical selenite can be easily bought, and many of these are made into long flat and rounded wands.

A lovely but less common color is the Green Selenite, which is very unusual, and mainly comes from Australia. They occur as clusters of crystals and they are very fragile.

They are fine needle-like green crystals, with some white and brown color towards the base of them.

Another very beautiful formation that is becoming more sought after is the formation known as Fishtail Selenite or Angel Wing Selenite.

This formation and the beautiful Golden Selenite, are powerful crystals to use for metaphysical purposes.

Why Would You Use Selenite?

Selenite crystals are high vibration stones that will move your spiritual growth forward quickly. They are a stone of the third eye chakra, the crown chakra and the soul star chakra.

By opening the crown chakra, this stone allows you to access the transpersonal chakras, from the eighth chakra through to the fourteenth chakra.

Use this stone at the heart chakra or third eye first, and you may find that you will feel the energy moving through the crown chakra.

Once it clears any negativity or distortions from the crown chakra, the energy is then free to flow via the stellar gateway to the soul star chakra.

Many of you that have incarnated at this time have been spiritually active in past lives, and developed gifts and talents that your higher self still remembers.

Using Selenite may help you to learn how to be psychic, as it has a strong vibration. This stone may act as a conduit to other dimensions, as you remember your past lives in different places.

Satin spar Selenite may have vertical lines running down the length of the stone, and this is usually in the direction of the point of the wand.

Crystals shaped like this may be referred to as light wands, as these wands are quite reflective of light.

So how do you use them for healing, you may wonder? 

  • If you have a wand shaped piece of this stone, you can gently squeeze it to activate it.
  • Then hold it to any area of the body where you feel you might need help.
  • A healer, or anyone who wishes to use them for healing, can also use them to sense where the health problem is located in the body.
  • This is useful if you are unsure of exactly where in the body the problem originates. 
  • The way that you discover where the problem might be, is by gently squeezing the wand and moving it. 
  • When you recognize that you are feeling a change in the energy flow, this tells you that the energy in this area is not flowing as it should be.
  • The healer, or anyone using it for this purpose, would also activate the wand to use it for healing, by gently squeezing it.

You then point the wand towards the specific problem area that you have become aware of, when you previously used it to locate the health issue.

The vibration of these wands is powerful, as once activated they will cleanse the etheric field of the body of any negativity.

The vibration of Selenite crystals, regardless of the shape it occurs in, often sets in train the birth of the psychic power of mental telepathy.

This may be helpful for healers, to aid them to discover what a client may be needing help with, or just generally in your life to boost communication with that special someone.

Who Should Use It?

The best way to begin using your Selenite crystals is in meditation. Start by going deeply into relaxed inner awareness and allow yourself to feel and experience what the vibration of your particular stone has to offer you.

Cleansing Selenite Crystals

Contact with water is not recommended for any variety of Selenite. When cleansing these stones, use other methods of cleansing your crystals.

Note: DO NOT WET your Selenite Crystals, as they may dissolve in water. Alternatively they may not actually dissolve but may discolor or pit.

This may vary according to the specific variety. Even sealed pieces that have been fashioned into pendants or made into hearts or other shapes may lose their lovely sheen. 

In some cases, depending on the type, thin slices may come away. I had that happen when I spilled something onto a slab of this stone that I use as a background when taking photos, when I gently rinsed it off. 

Although it is important to cleanse crystals regularly, Selenite is a stone that you need to take a degree of care with when cleansing it.

"In seeking wisdom thou art wise. In imagining that thou hast attained it, thou art a fool." The Talmud.

Using It With Other Stones

If you want your spiritual path to accelerate, use this stone in combination with other sixth, seventh or eighth chakra stones or crystals.

By the use of regular daily meditations you can expect to move your spiritual growth forward quite quickly.

There are many stones that are common to all three higher chakra groups, and combined with Selenite they make a powerful meditation experience.

Some specific ones that you might consider would be Herderite, Danburite, Tiffany Stone aka Bertrandite, Moldavite, Datolite, Natrolite, Yttrium Fluorite, Phenacite, Pink Petalite and Clear Quartz Crystals.

Meditation with Selenite is recommended, either alone or you can combine it with any of these stones. This may open and activate the soul star chakra via the crown chakra

The soul star chakra is sometimes called the Seat of the Soul. These lovely crystals are among the group of powerful high crystal energy stones.

To decide which of the stones to combine with it, you may choose to read the articles on each of the high vibration stones, as they may have quite different outcomes.

Pink Petalite is one of my favorites to use to get started with. Using this may take you to the higher realms to contact angelic beings, who may aid your search for enlightenment.

Clear Apophyllite, Danburite and Angel Phantom Quartz aka Amphibole Quartz crystals are also good to combine with Selenite to aid contact with angels.

Beautiful crystal jewelry made from any of the high vibration stones may move you forward more quickly on your personal journey.

Use these while doing a meditation to boost psychic abilities, as any of these crystals also have the potential to develop psychic abilities.

The development of telepathy, clairaudience and clairvoyance, or having psychic visions is possible once you begin to use the high vibration stones like Selenite.

If you'd like to boost the possibility of developing telepathic gifts, you may like to combine this crystal with stones that help you to develop this capacity.

This includes stones such as Petalite, Apophyllite, Phenacite, Natrolite, Muscovite, Ulexite, Labradorite Crystal, Eudialyte, Blue Kyanite and Blue Calcite.
