Healing at Home: 5 Ways to Use Selenite

Posted by Keri Bertolino on

I’m not sure why I needed third-party validation of this stone’s power, yet I recently found myself putting a piece of Selenite in the palm of my friend’s hand. "Be honest. Do you feel the energy of this crystal?” He was shocked at how electric it felt. I can’t say I was surprised – Selenite has long been known for its strong vibration.

A common stone among energy healers, Selenite opens your crown chakra, enabling you to communicate with angels for guidance. While you may not be interested in accessing angelic realms (though if you’re reading this blog, maybe you are!), you may want more mental clarity in your daily life. Who doesn’t? This is where Selenite can be incredibly powerful in cleansing your aura of any negativity that has amassed – bringing you to a more clear and balanced place.

Even if you’re a positive person, it’s easy to take on the negative energies of others – frustrated shoppers at the supermarket, your rage-ridden cab driver, the anxious person sitting next to you in a doctor’s waiting room…you get the idea. We are susceptible to picking up all types of energies, and Selenite can work wonders in clearing it.

But let’s quickly back up for those of you who may not be familiar with Selenite. Named after the goddess of the moon, Selene, this crystal can come in many different sizes, shapes and colors, but is usually found as a non-transparent white crystal. It is commonly sold as wands, clusters, towers and spheres – you can even get Selenite candle holders. Selenite has one of the most powerful activation energies on Earth; as mentioned above, it is an activator of the higher chakras, including the crown.

How to Use Selenite

While there are several ways to use Selenite, here are a few of my favorites:

  1. Aura Cleansing: Use a small Selenite wand as an “energy eraser.” Start at the top of your head. Holding the wand about five inches from your body, slowly bring the crystal down your body. Visualize the crystal taking in all the negativity, anxiety and worries from your day. This simple technique only takes a few minutes, but is very powerful for clearing away unwanted energy.
  2. Space Clearing: Use white candles in a Selenite candle holder to clear the energy of the room. Or simply place Selenite in any room where you want to clear the energy. I personally love Selenite towers for this purpose. Many people put Selenite wands on the windowsills of their homes to maintain a positive living environment.
  3. Clearing Blockages in the Body: Selenite is a useful tool for removing energy blockages in your body. If you are experiencing tightness or soreness, place a Selenite wand on the specific area of your body for about 20 minutes. Believe me, you’ll feel the difference. I often use a Selenite wand with a clear Quartz point to dull a headache (place the Selenite on your forehead with the Quartz point pointing outward to direct the energy out of your body).
  4. Jewelry Cleaning: Selenite is excellent for clearing and purifying jewelry. I put my Moonlight + Sage bracelets on a piece of Selenite every night before going to bed so they are energetically clean in the morning.
  5. Energy Shifting: This is a simple technique that you can do in 15 minutes. Sit in a chair and place your bare feet on a selenite wand or stone. As you sit quietly, relax, breathe and let go. Feel the energy of the Earth under your feet. You’ll feel clarity and balance is restored within your body.

Selenite is a great stone to enhance your meditation and, while it's an important crystal for energy workers, it is an easy crystal for anyone to use. We are now offering small Selenite wands at as an add-on item. You can find them in the Sacred Spaces section of our website. In addition, anyone who books an Energy Work session at Bow & Arrow during the months of March and April will receive 2 free Selenite wands to continue the healing at home!
