Crystal Lore | Selenite



Legends say God, while creating our world, had to take a breath while creating divine light, but that light shattered as he exhaled and the shattered pieces created selenite.

Having a high, fine vibration, selenite helps to clear obstructions and promotes clear communication. Selenite can help open the crown and higher chakras, as well as get in contact with your team and angelic guidance. These qualities help to make selenite an excellent stone to use during meditation and when desiring to find calm peaceful energy.

Selenite sweetens any space it is in, dissolving tension, stress, and negativity. Selenite’s high vibration also provides mental clarity, mental flexibility, and enables strong decision-making capabilities, making it an excellent crystal for students and business spaces.

When used in grids, selenite makes sure that the energy is clear, stable, and unblocked. This stone can be used around the house to create a safe and quiet space that does not allow the world to intrude.  Simply place pieces of selenite in the corners of the house or room. You can also place selenite over any doorway, as it clears the energy coming into and out of that space. Use a small selenite wand or log and place it on the door jam for this purpose.

Selenite is an excellent stone to clear other gemstones. Simply place a stone on or near selenite to cleanse.

Folklore | History

In ancient Mesopotamia, selenite was found in sick rooms to keep evil spirits at bay.

Hang a piece of selenite on a fruit tree and the fruit will grow rapidly.

Selenite is named from the Greek word for the moon,


Selenite is a part of the sedimentary rock family. Sedimentary rock is compressed rock pieces that are cemented together in layers or mixed with rainwater and dripped into being. Specifically, selenite is an evaporate sedimentary rock. Evaporate sedimentary rocks are formed when bodies of water evaporate, leaving behind the chemicals that were dissolved in them.


Crown, soul star, stellar gateway.


Cleanse in brown rice and re-energize in the moonlight.

Selenite is water soluble and should never be placed in water.

Selenite Pendants

Cosmic Portals |Practitioner’s Tool Box

As a practitioner, the issues of your clientele are obviously going to vary. The tools and information required to help them along will depend on their needs. Working with crystals is not an exception. Each crystal has a list of properties, and they are not always going to apply to the work you are doing. On the other hand, there are stones that just about everyone can use. Here are three stones have been found to be of assistance in any situation.

Firstly, let review Selenite and it’s uses. This crystal brings down the purest of white light energies. It works with the Crown Chakra and other higher Crown Chakras, offering peace and higher access to a higher consciousness.  Selenite is fossilized salt water, so it can work to purify a nearby water table, or correct the flow of a vortex created by underground water in motion. The high frequency at which selenite resonates will dissolve any negativity in the energy field. This can easily be achieved by using it to “comb” the aura. It also will help to align the spinal column when placed along the vertebrae.

Blue Kyanite is another great stone with an energy that everyone can use. Like selenite, it does not require clearing. These two crystals also connect the light-body to the physical body, grounding higher consciousness and high vibrations. Each person has energy blockages, and kyanite breaks right through them. It aligns and clears the meridians, chakras, and subtle bodies. It also relieves physical pain. Being a Throat Chakra stone, blue kyanite opens the throat, assisting in self-expression and cutting through fears that reside in this area. Additionally, kyanite replenishes life force energy, and aids in realizing the cause of any issue.

Finally, Black Tourmaline completes this trio. Tourmaline has the ability to purify and transform dense, imbalanced energy into lighter, high vibrational energy. When it is actively working in the energy field, negativity passes through rather than sticking to the aura. This allows the user to learn from a negative situation, but not to be directly affected by it. Black tourmaline also removes blockages, connects the chakras, and balances the meridians. Being a Root Chakra stone, it helps to understand yourself as well as others. It increases vitality, and offers a clear thought process. Black tourmaline is also a great tool for alleviating the effects of EMF pollution.

In the above photo are the three suggestions displayed. The uppermost setup is intended for a work space. This could be your office, home, or business. If you have a practice that requires that your client lay down, this would be perfect underneath the table. The large specimens reach out, covering a moderately vast area. On the bottom left, there is a pocket size version of the three stones. This could be placed in a pouch to wear, carried with you, or maybe on a desk. If you are the crafty type, I recommended trying to replicate the item on the bottom right. This is a wand, and originally where this triad comes from. The selenite has a fine point, a surgical point if you will. The kyanite lays on the side assisting the selenite in removing blockages. The black tourmaline is on the end of the wand, placed to protect the healer from any negative energies that the client may be releasing. If you choose to do this, copper wire, leather, and silk are all great ways to hold stones together. A little Gorilla Glue wouldn’t hurt either. Have fun!

Staff Speak – Crystals for Reiki

All crystals can be used as tools during a reiki session.  Some are used to assist the Reiki Practitioner with their own field and some used as tools on the client.  It is good practice to connect with the crystals and see if they would like to help with the reiki session.

Before you begin, take inventory of the crystals that you have.  Go through them and decide whether you want the crystal just for your personal use or if you would like to use it for reiki sessions.  Make two piles: personal use, and personal/reiki use.  Take the pile that you would use for both and pick up each crystal, connect with it and ask it if it is willing to/wants to be useful as a reiki tool.  Crystals become attuned to the wearer’s energy and if you were to take a tumbled stone that you keep with you all the time and use it on a person, the crystal’s energy might become overloaded by the client’s energy and it may crack or break.  It is advised to keep the crystals for reiki sessions separate from your personal ones, so it is easy to know what you can use in sessions.

Right before a session, take a moment to meditate and ask for guidance on what crystals may be needed and how they should be laid out.  Always do a quick cleansing of the crystals before a Reiki session.  Do a thorough cleansing after a session.

Some general crystals to keep on hand for use during reiki are: quartz points, amethyst points, rose quartz, carnelian, citrine, sodalite, aquamarine, smokey quartz, and red jasper.  The quartz points are good to use for the crown chakra and are used to grid around the body to pull energy in or move energy out.  The Amethyst points are good to use on the brow chakra and again to pull energy in or move energy out. Aquamarine or sodalite is uselful for clearing the throat chakra.  Rose quartz is used on the heart chakra and in various grids around the body. Citrine helps clear the solar plexus chakra.  Carnelian helps energy flow through the sacral chakra.  Smokey quartz or red jasper can be used on the root chakra.  Crystal Life has a basic chakra set that is perfect for this use during a reiki session.

A different stone can be used for each chakra or you can use the same type of stone for each chakra.  For example, if you are working on learning to love yourself, put a rose quartz one of the chakras before giving yourself reiki.  It is best to go with your own intuition as to which layout is best for each session.

Prehnite, apophyllite, and selenite are good stones to have in your healing space or to wear while assisting others.   Prehnite is known to heal the healer.  It helps seal up any holes in the aura.  Apophyllite is great to place under the table as helps amp up the energy and assists in helping you become a clearer channel.  Selenite is a high vibrational stone and assists in clearing the room and can be swept over your body to remove any debris.

As always, it is best to use your intuition and pick the crystals that will work best for your reiki tool box.

Staff Speak~Customer’s Peaceful Results

A customer came in the other day with a success story that I would like to share.  I had helped her pick out a crystal that would help alleviate the conflict that was brewing between her and her neighbors.  She lives in an apartment and the neighbors next to her where staying up all night, playing loud music, etc.  She didn’t want to ask them to be quiet because she felt it would just make matters worse.  Instead she had come to the store in hopes to get a crystal that would “make her neighbors quiet”.  I reminded her that nothing can make someone do anything.  I also shared with her my story of using selenite in the home office that I had shared with my husband. We had a hard time using the room at the same time. It alleviated the conflict in such a way that he did not use the office anymore.

She picked out a selenite in hopes to ease the tension between her and her neighbors with hopes that they would be quieter.  I told her to put it on a shelf that she had against the wall closest to their apartment.

When she came back in, she happily thanked me.  She said that at first it did not work.  Though she sensed that the crystal wanted to be seen and loved and not put up high on the top shelf behind things.  So she took it down and put it on a shelf where it could be admired.  She thanked it everyday and told it how beautiful it was.  She shared that the day she put it on a lower shelf, was the day that the noise from the neighbors had stopped.  She was elated that now she could sleep at night and get her studying done during the day.

Staff Speak~Finding Peace Within

I once heard that the only way you can change what is going on around you is to first begin by changing what is within you.  I see many people right now going through alot of change in their personal and professional lives.  Many people are stressed by events that are out of their control.

The earth is going through a great change just as we her caretakers are experiencing it throughout our daily lives.

There is much turmoil through out the world with political officials arguing, countries squabling with each other, and the people within the countries fighting.  Many ignore it, others judge it and still others take sides and promote it.  Where is the peace in this world?  Where can one go and feel calm and peaceful?

The answer is simple…go within.  Find the peaceful place in your heart.  Connect with it, cultivate it and work from that peaceful place.  Easier said than done?  Actually it is quite simple and easy to start.  Take 5 minutes out to sit close your eyes and imagine you are sitting in the center of your heart.  It is safe and warm there.  Ask yourself what you can do to fill your life with more peace.  When you get an answer, take immediate action and incorporate the ideas and see how more peaceful you feel. Need a little help getting there? The following crystals help with finding more peace:  amazonite, lapis lazuli, and selenite.
