  • Cleansing: To cleanse this crystal of any bad energies that may have collected over time, use: 
    • Sage or Sage Incense. Simply suggest the negative energies release to make room for positive ones as you gently wave the sage or incense around your crystal so that the generated smoke mingles with all sides. 
    • Water. Water neutralizes the negative energy stored in the stone and directs it back to the earth. Rinse your Tiger’s Eye with water by placing them under directly under natural rainfall for 4 to 5 minutes. If rain isn’t an option, you can also place your stones in a colander and run your stones under a faucet for about 10 minutes. This would also work for general cleaning of your stone as well. 
    • Salt Water. With this technique, soak your stones overnight in water with a pinch of sea salt. Ideally, if you can access real sea water, that’s even better. Make sure to give your crystal a rinse in clear water afterwards to remove any residue.

Selenite: Crystal Properties and Care

Primary Chakra: Crown Chakra

Secondary Chakra: All other chakras (Third Eye / Brow Chakra, Throat Chakra, Heart Chakra, Solar Plexus Chakra, Sacral Chakra and Root / Base Chakra)

Selenite (often referred to as Liquid Light) is most commonly used as a tool to cleanse and charge your other stones and crystals.

Selenite is a crystallized form of Gypsum, which is used for good luck and protection.  It is a natural fibrous stone. Its powerful vibration can clear, open, and activate the Crown Chakra and supports various types of spiritual work.  It can also be used to strengthen the memory.  Selenite promotes tranquility, a peaceful stone that creates deep calm. Selenite will work to clear your confusion and assist you in seeing the bigger picture.

Selenite crystals help to remove all energy blockages in the body. It is also said to provide protection when placed in corners of a room, home or designated area due to its ability to ward off negatvity.

It’s one of the most recommended stones for energy healers because of its insight and peaceful energy.

Charging other Stones with Selenite

In addition to having it’s own healing and balancing properties, Selenite is reportedly capable of charging other crystals, gems, and stones. Simply place those on your plate for 4 or more hours at a time every few days to retain a consistent strength.

Caring for your Selenite
Selenite is a soft form of crystal and scratches and flakes very easily, so be gentle. It is also a self sustaining crystal, which mean is doesn’t really require any cleansing or charging, but it great for cleansing and charging other stones. However, I do think it’s a good practice to brighten that energy on occassion, which I describe below. Also, as a Reiki Master, I sometimes have a particularly intense session (I place Selenite beneath my Reiki table for and extra boost good mojo). When this happens I also will incorporate a cleanse of sage or moonlight (see below) to relieve any lingering negative energies.

  • Cleaning: Do not use water or any liquids to clean your Selenite plate. Simply use a dry cloth or paper towel and wipe clean.
  • Charging: While most suggest that Selenite does not require to be charged, it you would like to charge it, you can do so by placing in a window or on your patio (in a safe place) or any spot where it can bathe in the moonlight overnight.
  • Cleansing: To cleanse the plate of any bad energies that may have collected over time, use sage or sage incense. Simply suggest the negative energies release to make room for positive ones as you gently wave the sage or incense around you plate so that the generated smoke mingles with all sides. Placing in moonlight can also additionally cleanse your Selenite.

NOTE: KEEP SELENITE AWAY FROM LIQUIDS. Selenite is vulnerable to water — it will dissolve. Please avoid placing near any water sources. When physically cleaning, please wipe with dry cloth only.
