Clear Energy Flow, Protection, Emotional Balance
Because Desert Rose doesn’t look like a typical crystal, I wasn’t expecting its high energy vibrations. In fact, it’s one of the most powerful crystals I’ve encountered.
As I held it in my palm while meditating, I not only felt its energy in my hand, but I also felt a vibrating ring around my head at the level of my Third Eye Chakra. Since Desert Rose is a form of Selenite, this wasn’t too surprising.
Desert Rose is the go-to stone for mental and intuitive clarity, and that’s exactly what I experienced. This is an excellent stone to meditate with before making important life or business decisions, or when you feel confused or unsure about a situation.
It’s said to be a gentle grounding crystal. Desert Rose can quickly clear stagnant energy; the end result is a state of serenity, a clear vision for your life, and a solid feeling that all is well.
Metaphysical Properties: Desert Rose can be used to quickly clear stagnant energy, enter a state of deep peace, heal a relationship conflict, clear the mind, “see” your life purpose, provide a sense of safety, security, and feeling cared for, and protection from Mother Earth. Some use Desert Rose or Selenite in a crystal grid to protect the home environment. It can also be used for astral travel, to access past and parallel lives, and for dream recall.
Physical Properties: Desert Rose is useful for deep relaxation, calming mood swings or susceptibility to weather changes, skin conditions, inflammation, pain and regeneration of tissues.
