Selenite is a variety of gypsum or hydrated calcium sulfate that promotes mental clarity, enhances mental flexibility and strong decision-making abilities. Its name derives from the Greek moon Goddess, Selene, which means “moonlight” glow and has been used for centuries.
Also known as the Stone of Truth and honesty, this stone promotes strong decision-making abilities as well as honesty in other types of relationships.
This stone is also great for removing any blockages and is often used as an amplifier of other stones. It also clears and charges other crystals and are great for any crystal grids.
On an emotional level, this stone can help relieve stress and anxiety, strengthens the power of positive affirmations. Selenite can also help dispel negativity and help maintain a loving relationship comfortably and with ease as well as promote harmony and inner peace. It is also a powerful disperser and stabilizer for erratic emotions.
Selenite can be used on the crown chakra, sacral chakra, and the third eye. It promotes powerful intuition as well as psychic awareness and can help the user access past lives and do past life work and healing. A large piece of this stone in the house can ensure a peaceful atmosphere.
On a physical plane, Selenite can help Alzheimer patients, dementia, it can help align the spine, decrease epilepsy, and seizures. This stone can also promote flexibility, help with the absorption of calcium as well as other vitamins and minerals. It can also promote fertility, increase libido, protect pregnant women and help them in their journey of motherhood. It is also great for those who have mercury poisoning from dental amalgam, breastfeeding, and it’s finest healing occurs at the energetic levels.
I will have to say that the stone is so soft and delicate that it can be scratched easily and can also dissolve in water. Once you meditate with it, you’ll notice that it brings clarity to your spiritual understanding and give a sense of peace. A lot of people tend to put other crystals representing the seven chakras and use it as a healing wand, which is great for any reiki practitioners or healers.
