Stone of the Month for April 2012 ~ Selenite

The stone of the month for April is one of my favorites, Selenite.  Selenite is a form of gypsum (hydrated calcium sulfate) that is very common and is colorless and transparent.  It is crystallized in highly saline water and is found in massive beds.  Selenite gets its name from the Greek moon goddess Selene because of its pearl-like sheen and the glow it has when placed in moonlight.  Selenite forms into clear blades and has lines running though it from top to bottom.  Some pieces may contain air and water bubbles.  Selenite is a very soft crystal and some pieces may bend.  Also, when dropped it will easily break (trust me, I discovered this the hard way).  Selenite also acts as an insulator and will feel warmer to the touch than other crystals.

My Selenite heart. I meditate with this piece and sleep with it under my pillow.

Apparently The Fortress of Solitude is in a cave in Mexico. Who knew??

Selenite has a very high vibration and are powerful meditation and healing crystals.  Selenite is a conductor of energy and creates a feeling of rushing waves through the body while clearing away negative mental and emotional patterns as well as physical and emotions toxins.  Working with Selenite for extended periods of time takes practice because of the intensity this crystal carries.  When fixed to other crystals in a wand, Selenite will substantially increase the power of those crystals. Selenite helps bring clarity to the mind, open the higher chakra and access your higher self.  It is excellent for meditation because it instills peace and calm. Selenite is also helpful when trying to see the bigger picture in a situation and helps improve your judgement and insights.  It will help you understand what has been occurring on a subconscious level and is a stabilizer of erratic emotions.

Selenite carries the imprint of all that has happened in the world.  Use this crystal when attempting to access past lives, access the between lives state and access the plan (lessons to be learned ) for your current life.  Selenite will help you pinpoint issues that your working on in this life and help you find the best way to resolve them. 

WARNING!! - Selenite will dissolve in water! If you cleanse your crystals using water and sea salt exclude Selenite from this practice.  Use incense smoke, especially sage, to cleanse your Selenite crystals.  Selenite will discolor if left in direct sunlight! Do not place Selenite in a window or under a lamp.  Selenite is a soft crystal and will easily break if dropped.  Handle this crystal with care.  Now back to our regularly scheduled blog.

Creating a protective grid in the home using Selenite:
  • Bringing Selenite into your home will help create a safe, quite space that does not allow outside influences in.
  • You'll need a small to medium size piece of Selenite for each room or one large piece that you can place in the center of the home.
  • Cleanse each piece of Selenite by passing it through sage smoke.
  • Once each piece is cleansed hold them in your hand one by one and charge them protection energy.
  • Once the crystals are charged begin placing them in each room of the house. Begin at the front door and work your way through the home, room by room until you find yourself back at the front door. While doing this visualize the protective grid being formed around your home. 
  • If your using one large piece place it in its spot in the center of the home. Visualize the protective grid emanating from the crystal. 
  • When you cleanse your home with sage or be sure to cleanse each Selenite crystal as you go through the home. This will keep them cleansed and ready to keep your home calm and protected.

National Geographic did an hour special about a giant crystal discovered in Mexcio.  The cave is filled with huge pieces of gypsum/Selenite and was an incredible find.  The cave is a football field long and two stories tall.  This clip is part one and the rest of the show can be found on youtube.

Interesting Tidbit: Selenite has a long memory and is believed to record everything that happens in its presence. Some people believe that if a theft occurs in the presence of Selenite the crystal will record the crime and can later be 'tapped into' to reveal the criminal. Instead of installing that expensive security system just set up the Selenite protection grid. However, keep in mind that what the crystal reveals probably won't hold up in court.  Also, Selenite can be used to enhance telepathy between two people by each person holding a piece of Selenite in their hand. 

Selenite will help bring calm and protection to your home. Accessing past lives is easier done with Selenite and this crystal will help you find the best way to resolve issues in your current life.  Use Selenite to enhance the power of other crystals and to open your higher chakras.  This crystal can be a little intense at first so start slow. Don't forget to keep it away from water (just act like it's Gizmo from Gremlins) and direct light.  Try out the Selenite crystal grid, if Superman surrounded himself with Selenite why shouldn't you??  I gave a few points on Selenite but there is more information out there so do some research on your own. 

Bright Blessings,
