Selenite Spiritual Energy
Selenite brings divine light into everything it touches and stimulates the clearest state of mind attainable, where all thoughts entering the consciousness come from the Source and are direct reflections of pure spirit. It is one of the best crystals available for clearing congested energies or negativity from one’s physical and etheric body, and for helping one consciously connect with the higher Self.
Selenite is believed to carry the history of all that has happened in the world within its fine linear striations, and can help one connect with ancient wisdom and knowledge. It may also be utilized for accessing the between-lives state in order to view one’s progress made and to determine issues of this life and how they can best be resolved.
Selenite Goddess Crystals
Selenite honors Selene, the Greek Moon Goddess, depicted wearing a crown of the crescent moon, long robes, and carrying a torch. She travels the sky to guide and protect those in the dark. Women in particular associate with Selene, seeing in her the mystery and romance of the evening.
Selenite in Ancient Lore and Legend
In ancient Mesopotamia, Selenite was used to keep sickrooms free from evil spirits. A banishing ritual at least five thousand years old describes the use of a paste made from bitumen and Selenite which the priests smear on the door of a sick man, and paint as images of apkallus, “sages,” upon the side wall, as well as the head and foot of the bed. The Selenite is Ninurta (Saturn, a positive deity) who chases the bitumen Asakku (a demon causing the illness). Ninurta uses the crystal powers with sound therapy and other deity figurines to do battle with Asakku until he is caught in a ritually created net and banished to the Otherworld. Once the spirit has been expelled something must be put in its place. As Selenite holds the divine light of the gods, it was used to fill the void so nothing else could attach.
A Kabbalistic creation myth explains that God was everywhere before the universe existed, but he had to inhale to create space for our world. In order for Him to be present in creation, he formed vessels of divine light to populate the universe; however, they shattered. As Selenite carries that light, its task is to reunite the shards of the divine with their source.
In the Medieval world, Selenite was said to contain an image of the moon and was believed to grow or shrink in accordance with the lunar phases. If carved with the two phases of the moon and worn around the neck, it was believed capable of inspiring love, safeguarded pregnancy and provided a good birth, bestowed peace and harmony, reconciled lovers, shrank welts, and healed those suffering from consumption. It was also claimed to protect thieves, keep sea travelers safe, especially from storms, to increase personal properties and to help obtain honors. Placed under the tongue on the first and second days of the moon, it helped one predict the future. Worn on the finger, Selenite made one worthy of honor and veneration and gave divine inspiration, and if it were enclosed in a gold capsule with parsley it would make bees fertile.
In Pantagruel, the French Renaissance writer, François Rabelais, described the temple of the oracle of “la Dive Bouteille” as having seven columns formed of precious stones, with the first being of Sapphire, the second of Jacinth, the third of Diamond, and so on. The seventh and final column was described as being of transparent Selenite, “with a splendor like that of Hymettian honey, and within appeared the moon in form and motion such as she is in the heavens, full and new, waxing and waning.”
