Satin-spar selenite, a little-known and underutilized crystal, contains all the positive qualities of quartz crystal’s healing power and protection without any of the negatives. In mythology, it is said to have been a major healing tool, record keeper and energy generator in Atlantis. Whether or not you believe in Atlantis, there is no denying this crystal’s power. Satin-spar selenite is, without a doubt, the healing crystal of the future.

Satin-spar, a unique form of selenite (a gypsum derivative), is the form most often associated with healing properties. It is mined in Europe and northern Africa, and has been credited with aiding in healing, energy enhancement, mental stimulation, meditation, telepathy and grounding.

What makes satin-spar so unique is its pearly opalescence and fantastic optic qualities due to built-in capillary fibers. A polished face will actually project an image through to the other side. It is no surprise that a satin-spar selenite wand is often referred to as a light wand.

Selenite does not take to being processed like other healing crystals. In fact, the least bit of processing renders its abilities pretty well inert. Additionally, it loses its potency if it is harshly mined. This, however, is a good thing. Such mineral sensitivity is what makes it an amazing healing tool when properly chosen and fashioned.

Properly chosen selenite releases negative energies naturally and continually (unlike most healing crystals that retain negative energies); further, it is powerful enough to clear and reprogram quartz and other sacred objects. It goes to the source of physical and emotional disorders, providing insights into probable causes. Its unique ability to connect and balance the spiritual and physical bodies enables selenite to do similar work between two persons, as well. Working with the subtle bodies, selenite leads one to the area most in need of clearing and balancing.

How to choose satin-spar selenite

All selenite is not created equal. In fact, no two specimens are alike in power or healing qualities. The best quality satin-spar is mined gently with good intent and processed minimally or not at all. The best way to choose your own is to pick it up and hold it for some time to feel the energy. It is not easy to find great specimens, but trust your intuition when choosing; it will not steer you wrong.

Uses for satin-spar selenite

1. Place one or more pieces of energized satin-spar selenite on painful areas of the body to provide relief. Selenite pulls anything negative from where it sits.

2. For stress, anxiety or grief, hold one or more pieces to your heart for a few minutes while breathing deeply. You will feel an opening of your heart chakra, buzzing and/or a release of negativity. Just holding a piece or two in your hands is enough for many people to calm and soothe even severe emotional distress.

3. Create a grid of protection with satin-spar, as you would with quartz crystals, surrounding anybody or anything.

4. Lie down and place one piece of energized selenite on each of the seven chakras (root, sacral, solar plexus, heart, throat, third-eye and crown) and hold a piece in each hand. Shortly, you will feel that you are being bathed in your version of “light.” In this state, you will ground and feel peace after a short while. Additionally, your vibration/frequency will rise from using it this way. Alternately, you can place the pieces on your back chakras for a completely different yet effective methodology.

5. Energy and lightworkers can use a wand to enhance and amplify client healing processes, or to spot imbalances by scanning it above a client’s energy field. Selenite actually stops at imbalances, blocks or cords as they are scanned.

6. Place any crystal or sacred object on top of a piece of satin-spar and the selenite will clean any energies present and recharge them. To reprogram crystals or other sacred objects, just visualize how you want the energy of your crystal or stone to perform.

7. Selenite acts as a bridge to other worlds. Rub a selenite wand in an outward direction using two or three fingers, with the intent of contacting your Guides or subconscious. At the same time, visualize and ask to contact a guide.

8. Using the same rubbing technique, ask your selenite for passage to particular areas of knowledge. Many times, that knowledge is given to you in dreams or while astral traveling.

Experimentation is the best way to find new uses for selenite. I hope that you begin using this wonderful crystal and it brings as much to your table as it has to mine.
