Selenite, like all gypsum, is a master facilitator, which means it has a wide variety of uses in crystal work and can be used very successfully with other stones. Although any number of attributes have been assigned to selenite, it is especially useful for cleansing quartz and other minerals. Psychologically and materially, it has cleansing effects as well, and is said to remove negative influences of all kinds.

Some sources claim that selenite energy operates like no other, working rather like a radio that tunes into areas of difficulty or static. Our problems may not always be what we believe them to be, but selenite energy can be very illuminating, whether we agree with its diagnosis or not.

Place any crystal, specimen, or pocket stone you have been working with on top of your selenite. The crystal will both clean any energies present and help to recharge your other crystals and stones. You can greatly increase any other crystal or stone energy by pointing your selenite at the other stone, visualizing just how you want that stone to perform.

In addition to removing negative energies, selenite enables one to more readily access unconscious impulses and patterns of behavior, so it's important to be mindful when working with it. Its energy is best directed outward rather than inward as a protective influence.

Especially useful in helping to clarify issues, as well as your own mental processes, selenite can sometimes operate beyond your plans for it, so if you suddenly start to experience visions of the future or past lives, don't say I didn't warn you. Selenite is associated with the crown chakra and has certain powers to amplify circumstances, so if you're feeling especially vulnerable, use another stone until you're on a more even keel.

A large piece of Selenite placed in the house ensures a peaceful atmosphere. Selenite wands can be used to detach entities from the aura* or for preventing anything external from influencing the mind.

Carrying the imprint of all that has happened in the world, Selenite reaches other lives and is very useful for checking on progress made and for accessing the plan for the present life from the between-lives state'. It pinpoints lessons and issues that are still being worked upon, and shows how they can best be resolved. It can be used for scrying*, to see the future or to ascertain what has happened in the past.
