What is Ulexite?
Like so many, you may be working to heighten your psychic awareness. Keeping a piece under your pillow when at sleep and on or close to your brow chakra during meditation sessions, will help you on your way. The energies within it have a strong clearing effect mentally, physically, and spiritually; and therefore it creates harmony between all three aspects of being. Its light transporting properties send the divine energy of light to where it needs to be.
When experiencing complexity or facing problems at work or in any area of life, ulexite holds the potential to guide you to find solutions. As well it promotes understanding, this as its energies transfer subliminal communications. When you can sense what someone is feeling, it's simpler for you to relate to them.

With Psychic Awareness
More on its properties as a seer stone, is that it helps us to better read the energies of others and "see" the purposes they may have in mind for us. It is said to support the rest of the clair senses beyond that of clairvoyance as well. At times we need more insight into issues of self, and this stone can assist there too.
But there is a different description for the TV-like phenomenon as well: this is a crystal type that is not see-through but from one angle. Place it on top of writing (or something else that's easily distinguishable); and when looking through it in the direction of the grain, you can see the text through this otherwise non-see-through stone.
Notice that with the second description, there's no mention of what you see appearing to be close to the surface. Now that doesn't seem so extraordinary, but on the other hand, a non-transparent stone is passing an image through, so maybe it is after all. TV-like? Who knows, it shows an image, that's TV-like, isn't it? This second explanation of its properties makes more sense to me though, as it's in line with my own experience. But with that said, I'd like to add that though I have a piece packed away somewhere, I did not test it to make sure that it was ulexite and not satin spar selenite, commonly sold in its place.
In 1991 it was presented in the Journal of Geological Education, that when you hold a piece of polished ulexite to your eye and look towards a source of light, you'll see concentric circles of light (G. Donald Garlick and W. Barclay Kamb).

Care and Maintenance
When working with such high energy stones, it's a good idea to use a grounding stone. Either of black tourmaline or black obsidian is recommended, as they offer strong psychic protection on top of grounding. Using protection is wise when making psychic connections, lest your own vibration not be suitably high enough to connect exclusively with light beings at any given time.
Oh, and if you want a piece of this mineral, do some research and know what you are buying; some say that satin spar gypsum is often sold as ulexite.
