Selenite Crystal Meaning, Magic, and Uses

Selenite is one of my favorite crystals to work with because not only is it readily available, but full of magic and extremely easy to care for! In this article, I will be giving you my perspective of the selenite crystal meaning, its magic, and how you can use it to elevate your spiritual journey and meditation, as well as manifestation practices.

The Magic of the Selenite Crystal

Selenite was named after the Greek Goddess of the Moon–Selene. Personally, I feel this crystal holds a strong divine feminine energy that I associate with the heart and upper chakras. I find that Selenite offers great assistance when learning spiritual lessons related to forgiveness, love, death, and transformation.

It is my perspective that selenite is the feminine counterpart of clear quartz. Moon/Shakti energy. What I see when I connect to this specific crystal is a very thin, white veil that covers every corner of the universe. Doing a bit of research I found that a veil symbolizes purity and humility, as well as concealment or protection against unseen forces. But there is so much more! This magical crystal holds a frequency that I can only describe as the raw, untainted essence of the higher self. To me, it feels like spirit in physical form. Pure. Untainted. Divine. The physical manifestation of the feminine polarity or female counterpart of the masculine polarity of God/Source, which to me feels like clear quartz.

Selenite Crystal Meaning & Uses

According to the Encyclopedia of Crystals by Judy Hall, Selenite is a high vibrational stone that “creates a protective grid around a house, and a large piece placed in the house ensures a peaceful atmosphere.” So many healers, reiki practitioners, and witches use selenite in their day-to-day life and work practice for it offers spiritual protection. Personally, I have sticks of selenite laying on my altar to keep the space clear of low vibrational energetic debris.

  • Known as the Goddess Crystals
  • Promotes Purity and Honesty
  • Chakra Cleansing
  • Aura Cleansing
  • Purifies Energy in the Environment
  • Connection to the Angelic Realm
  • Removes Blockages to Allow the Activation of Shakti Energy
  • Cleanses and Charges other Crystals
  • Protection Against Low Vibrational Energy
  • Transformation and Integration of Energy
  • Divine Love Frequency

I highly recommend that you include selenite sticks or selenite powder in your manifestation rituals for it clears the energetic blockages you may be projecting onto the spiritual tools you may be utilizing to conjure magic.

Grab a selenite stick and gift it to the tree spirits, fairies, elementals, and the earth herself during your walks. Charge it with the energy of the sun or moon and hand it over to the spirits of nature to establish an energetic connection.

Got a headache? Feeling sad or angry? Need a bit of mental clarity? Grab a piece of selenite, hold it in your hands for a few minutes (read below for detailed instructions), or place it in your head (or wherever the physical discomfort is). I often place selenite in my heart chakra or chest to calm down when feeling anxiety or fear. Be intentional and speak to the spirit of selenite. All crystals are living beings.

Are you menstruating? Grab some selenite! This is a powerful feminine stone and has the potential of elevating our spiritual gifts and intuition during this bleeding/moon time.

Need extra energetic protection around your home? Grab selenite sticks and bury them around the perimeter of your home. You can also pulverize selenite by hitting it with rocks or a hammer (be safe!). Disperse the powder in your back and front yard. If you have pets, definitely do your research to ensure their safety. Oh, and don’t forget to bless the selenite sticks or powder with your love and intention. One more thing, for a powerful protection blend, take some of that selenite powder and mix it with cascarilla or eggshell powder!

* Do NOT get selenite wet or cleanse with salt water! It will disintegrate.

How to Work with Selenite Crystal

What I share in this section of the article is the way in which I like to work with selenite crystals. If what is listed here resonates with you, definitely give it a try, and let me know how it goes!

1. Sit down and rub your hands together until you begin to feel warmth in your palms. This awakens the chakras located in your hands. (I like holding the crystal with my left hand while the right hand holds my left hand. But you do what feels right for you.)

2. Once selenite is in your hands, close your eyes. This is where you can set an intention of what it is that you want from the crystal. Speak your intention. Be direct. Example: Spirit of Selenite (all crystals are conscious) I ask that you purify my physical and energetic bodies. Bless each organ, cell, the blood that runs through my veins, and all chakras with your divine light. Thank you.

^ This is more so geared towards physical healing but you can come up with something that resonates with what you are currently needing.

3. Stay in that space of intention and connection for as long as you can or feel is necessary. At some point, you will feel your hands get warmer and may even start to see flashes of light. Do not be afraid. Fear distorts energy. Remain calm and in the heart.

4. Once you’re done, thank the crystal one last time and go on with your day trusting that the connection has been established.

5. Another thing that you can do is hold it while you sleep. For example, whenever I feel low vibrational energy in my field, I sleep with a big selenite wand. I call it my spiritual sword! If you often have nightmares or wake up exhausted (body aches), try this!

Selenite is one of the few crystals that doesn’t really need to be cleansed or charged often. However, if you feel its energy is running low, try one of these 5 methods of cleansing and charging crystals!

Selenite and Transformation

I turn 30 years old in the month of June and felt inspired to create a small crystal collection channeling the energy (or theme) I’ve been living in since the age of 27. As many of you know, this age is the beginning of a massive transformation, initiated by (in astrology) our nodal opposition and followed by the legendary Saturn return. This, oftentimes, is seen as the biggest spiritual death and the longest dark night of the soul. So, in honor of this powerful transformation that we all go through at this age, I wanted to create a high-vibrational crystal piece that would encompass all that this period in life represents in our spiritual journey. And the crystal I felt guided to use is none other than selenite! So if the energy of this crystal resonates with you, check out my Kundalini Activation Crystal Collection in my Shop!
