Today I chose to write about Selenite; It’s one of the most powerful protective and enlightening crystals, and it always has been (for me anyways).
I sleep with a small, oval piece of Peach Selenite every night and it’s the most amazing thing- really…it has changed my life. I’ve been sleeping with this Peach Selenite for a year or so now; I lost it at one-point-in-time and it made its way back into my life.
One day I decided to carve my energy into the crystal and really make it my own; I carved symbols of meaning, Reiki symbols and just went with the flow of what I thought should be carved into the crystal. In case you guys are curious as to what my Peach Selenite looks like, It’s pictured below. Please note, once Selenite is carved, the “white dust” the Selenite produces, washes off with the touch of your hands again. I’ll re-carve the shapes every now and then, you can still see and feel where the original carvings took place.
~ // The Healing Properties of Selenite \\ ~
Selenite is a stone of protection, mental clarity, intuition, truth, manifestation and enlightenment. Some of the ways Selenite can be used is during meditation, having it in and around your sacred space and also carrying it on your person. It comes in handy for the focus we need during stressful times or when we’re making big decisions in our lives. Selenite lessens our distractions, confusions and stress while promoting mental stability and decision-making skills. Selenite is also a stone of truth- within yourself, within relationships and general honesty.
Selenite is associated with the Moon- After all it was named after the moon. The name Selenite comes from the Greek word “Selene”, meaning moon. Because Selenite has a strong connection with the moon, it brings us the protection we need while stabilizing our emotional well-being; Ultimately creating that stability and intuition which allows you to make conscious choices and decisions.
Selenite removes any energy blockages we have in us and within our sacred space. Selenite is so powerful, it can remove energy blocks within other crystals, stones and objects.
