Romancing the Stone: Selenite- Stone of Tranquility
Polished selenite seems to bring the rays of the moon to us in physical form. It is a gift from the Goddess Selene, handed down to earth. Indeed, this angelic stone can help us connect to the higher spirit and perhaps the Goddess herself. This stone brings tranquility to any surrounding. In raw form, one can see the many striations which run the length of the stone, and all throughout. These striations are said to hold the story of all things that have ever happened. So don’t let the soft light fool you, this stone holds power and wisdom as well.
When my thoughts are confused, when my emotions are erratic, when I need to create a safe space around me, selenite is the stone I turn to. The effect of selenite is felt almost immediately. The calm, the warmth of the stone in my palm, somehow allows me to breathe easier. Using this stone during meditation helps me cut through the internal and external turmoil and get to the root of my feelings. I also use selenite to help me connect to my higher self, my spiritual power, and to find guidance when a situation is unclear. This tranquil stone holds so many uses, it’s no wonder I have so many lovely pieces!
Selenite is associated with the crown chakra. Due to the calming and tranquil nature, selenite makes a wonderful gift for someone whom we seek reconciliation. Wear or carry selenite to help remain level headed at a stressful work or family environment. Use selenite during meditation to help bridge the path to the Spirit, or your Spirit Guide. Be aware that as a form of gypsum it is easily scratched and prone to water damage.
