In the crystal world, selenite is one, if not the most, powerful cleansing and charging crystal. If you have crystals that need cleansing or recharging, selenite is the way to go!
If you're looking to cleanse and charge your crystals, selenite is the way to go. Selenite has the ability to cleanse and purify other stones, as well as charge them with its own high vibration.
In this guide, we'll talk about how to cleanse and charge crystals with selenite. Learn why it's ideal to use selenite to cleanse your crystals.
Why Use Selenite to Cleanse Your Crystals
Selenite is an excellent option if you’re cleansing large amounts of crystals at once. You can save time restoring your crystal bracelets’ energy when you choose to cleanse with selenite.
This method is also ideal for cleansing large gemstones, such as crystal spheres, towers, and clusters. The flat surface of selenite ensures full contact with your cleansing crystal.
Cleansing Vs Charging Crystals
Before we proceed, it’s important to know the difference between cleansing and charging crystals. Cleansing is the process of removing negative or unwanted energies from your stones. Charging is the act of replenishing your crystal’s energy supply.
Ideally, you would want to do both cleansing and charging at the same time for maximum results. Selenite is the perfect crystal to use for cleansing and charging, as it can do both!
Which type of selenite should I use for cleansing?
Selenite comes in many forms, such as plates, bowls, towers, wands, and spheres.
When cleansing crystals, it's important for the stones to be in full contact with the selenite. For this reason, we recommend using a selenite plate, bowl, or tower.
These types of selenite have a flat surface that allows for full contact between the selenite and your other crystals. As a result, the cleansing and charging process will be more effective.
How to Cleanse Crystals with Selenite?
Now that we've gone over the basics, let's talk about how to cleanse crystals with selenite.
There are a few different ways to cleanse crystals with selenite:
Using a selenite plate
If you have a selenite plate, cleansing your crystals is as easy as placing them on the plate overnight. The selenite will cleanse and charge your crystals while you sleep!
To do this, simply place your crystals on the selenite plate before going to bed. In the morning, remove your crystals and give them a quick rinse under running water.
Using a selenite bowl
Just like the selenite plate method, cleansing crystals with a selenite bowl is simple.
To do this, place your crystals in the bowl and leave them overnight. In the morning, remove your crystals from the bowl and give them a quick rinse under running water.
Using a selenite tower
Selenite towers have many flat surfaces that make cleansing large areas easy.
To cleanse your crystals with a selenite tower, surround the tower with your crystals. Then, leave them overnight. In the morning, collect your crystals and give them a quick rinse under running water.
Using a selenite wand
Alternatively, you can also use selenite wands to cleanse multiple crystals at once. Although it's best to have full contact between the selenite and your crystals, cleansing with a selenite wand will still be effective.
To cleanse your crystals with a selenite wand, simply hold the wand above each crystal and move it in a counterclockwise motion. Doing this will create a cleansing energy field that will surround and cleanse your crystals.
Then, visualize a bright white light emanating from the selenite and cleansing all the negative energy from your crystals.
How to Charge Crystals with Selenite?
Charging crystals with selenite is a two-step process. First, you will need to cleanse your crystals with selenite. This step is important because it removes any unwanted energies that could interfere with the charging process.
After cleansing your crystals, you'll want to charge them with selenite. This will help restore their energy and raise their vibration.
While it's ideal to use flat selenite plates, bowls, or towers for cleansing, we prefer using a selenite wand for charging. This is because you can hold the wand and point it to your crystals, which helps direct your energy more effectively. Doing so helps you program your crystals with your intention more easily.
To charge your crystals with selenite:
- Hold the wand above each crystal and move it in a clockwise motion.
- As you do this, visualize your intention for the crystal. For example, if you're charging a crystal for protection, visualize a bright white light surrounding and protecting the crystal.
- Do this for each crystal that you wish to charge for a few minutes.
- After charging your crystals, we also recommend taking some time to meditate with them. This will help you connect with their energy and raise your vibration.
If you don't have the wand, you can also use your hand to direct the selenite energy. Simply hold the selenite close to your crystals as you visualize your intention.
As always, trust your intuition and let the selenite guide you.
