Day 1: Selenite

Today was a great first day! After waking up, I immediately went for my first crystal of this journey: selenite. There are many reasons I chose to start with this particular crystal and I recommend that everyone include it in their collection.

Why selenite?

Selenite is a beautiful clear crystal with a high vibration. For those of you who are new to crystals and how they work, every crystal vibrates at a different frequency. You have certainly heard of quartz watches, which use the vibrational frequency of quartz crystals to keep nearly perfect time. Over thousands of years, people have discovered that the different vibrations of crystals are able to stimulate and heal different chakras. The higher the vibration, the higher the chakra. Selenite opens the crown and higher crown chakras. For more information on vibrations, check out this short article.

Being that selenite is connected to the crown chakra, it helps to provide clarity of mind and increases awareness. The crystal can be used to clean a person’s aura as well as the energies of other crystals. I began with selenite in order to take advantage of its cleansing properties, charge it with my intentions for the next 45 days, and ultimately use it each night to charge the next day’s crystal. Read more about the properties and cleansing with selenite.

Today’s intention:

“I will have tranquility and mental clarity in order to be my best self.”

This morning, and various times throughout the day, I held the selenite and recited this intention. For the next 45 days, this crystal will represent the tranquility and mental clarity I want for myself. My goal is to infuse this same tranquility and clarity into every stone throughout my journey, though my specific intention will be different according to the properties of each stone.

What’s next?

Now that I have spent the day with my crystal and my intentions have been set, I will be finishing this evening with my 30-minute meditation. As I stated in the first post, there are many different ways to meditate. I will be focusing on mindfulness and clearing all thoughts from my head. I do this by focusing on my breathing and sitting perfectly still for the duration of my meditation. Selenite is a great stone for practicing mindfulness, so I will have it in my hands during this time.


Selenite helps with clearing negative energy and with awareness; perfect for mindfulness in meditation.


After my meditation this evening, I will be placing my ruby fuschite on the selenite to charge through the night. While looking at my stones, I was drawn to this particular crystal. Tomorrow, I will review its meaning and work with it through the day.

Thank you for following along and I look forward to sharing with you again tomorrow!
