Selenite Uses and Benefits For Protection and Cleansing

Originating from the deep caves of Mexico, Morocco, and Madagascar, selenite is a crystal used since Ancient Greece; selenite also means "moon" in Greek. Because of its translucent nature, people would often make windows out of selenite to allow sunlight to enter darker rooms.

The spiritual meaning of this crystal is rejuvenation and divine feminine energy. It also has a strong connection with the crown chakra. By being aware of the incredible energy of selenite, our worries and negative thoughts will soon fade away.

Selenite, also known as gypsum flower, satin spar, divine light, desert rose, and liquid light, comes with numerous benefits, including cleansing and purifying the environment to enhance meditation and spiritual work. Aside from the latter, here are some more noteworthy benefits of selenite:

Using Selenite Ensures Protection

Because it is a high vibration stone, selenite offers protection to people who use it and is a crystal that is best placed in your living room or bedroom. Selenite is ideal when it comes to absorbing negative energy. It is associated with higher realms, angelic connections, light, and purity.

Another great benefit of selenite is that it can cleanse your aura by removing stagnant energies and blockages. It is a great crystal for empaths as well, as they often become overwhelmed by the emotional energy they absorb from the people around them during the day.

So, it's no wonder people use it as their go-to crystal for personal and home protection. To ensure that you're always protected wherever you go or travel, we recommend:

Selenite Is a Crystal that Promotes Better Sleep

If you struggle with insomnia or nightmares, selenite is the perfect crystal to help you counteract them. Selenite promotes a calmer and clearer mindset, allowing the person to have a better quality of sleep and increases the frequency of pleasant dreams.

However, you should use a small piece of selenite to help you with your sleep, as large stones create too much energy that may actually disrupt your sleep and cause vivid dreams.

Whenever you feel restless, or you find yourself not being able to fall asleep, we recommend keeping the following on your nightstand:

Selenite Has Powerful Healing Properties

Selenite is a potent crystal, and it promotes physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual healing. If you feel out of balance or sick, try to meditate for several minutes while holding a small selenite wand in your hands.

Using selenite can relieve stress and anxiety and eliminate the negative energy that may be causing you to feel bad. It will ultimately offer you a sense of balance in your life if you use it regularly.

This crystal also can bring light down from the higher realms into your body. For this reason, it is perfect for healing, whether your physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual body is in pain. We recommend the following selenite products for healing:

Selenite Is a Great Source of Negative Ions

Negative ions are molecules charged with electricity that float in the atmosphere and positively affect our mental and emotional health. These molecules usually exist in nature and in remote places that have not been severely altered by the hands of humans.

Other sources of negative ions are ultraviolet sun rays, the discharge of electricity in the air resulting from a thunderclap or lightning strike, and water collisions such as ocean and waterfall waves. Selenite is also a source of negative ions, as the crystal can generate them in the environment that you inhabit. We recommend that you use the following:

How to Charge and Cleanse Selenite

If you are a crystal enthusiast, you probably know that, before using a stone, you should first cleanse and charge it. Selenite is no exception. You can cleanse and charge Selenite using the methods below:

  • filling a bowl with brown rice and burying the piece of selenite in it
  • smudging your piece of selenite with sage or palo santo
  • using chanting, singing bowls, a tuning fork, or a bell
  • using a larger stone, such as quartz or amethyst
  • placing your piece of selenite in the moonlight overnight

Because selenite can quickly disintegrate if it is placed in water or saltwater, you should never use these cleansing methods, which are otherwise excellent and effective for other crystals. Furthermore, you should also avoid keeping selenite in the sunlight. Since selenite inevitably accumulates negative energy over time, you should cleanse it regularly to work properly and reap all the benefits of this crystal.
