Phenacite is an extremely powerful and intense stone. Phenacite is highly sought after by metaphysicians due to its high energy frequency/vibration. Phenacite is a powerful Third Eye activator and Crown Chakra stone, opening the user to visionary intuition and higher awareness of the spiritual realms (including the Angelic realms and Ascended Masters), as well as facilitating the downloading of spiritual knowledge. Phenacite also activates the higher chakras (above the crown) and assists in alignment with the higher self.
Phenacite accesses the Akashic Record, helping to identify and release dis-ease. When used in combination, Phenacite helps to amplify the healing energy of other stones. Phenacite will help to deepen meditation and assists in bringing the higher self/unconditional love/Christ consciousness into reality. Phenacite strengthens community, helping to bring individuals together and building unity for a common purpose/goal.
Phenacite is a stone recommended for advanced crystal workers. When using Phenacite, it is useful to keep a good grounding stone, such as Black Tourmaline, Red Jasper, or Hematite nearby. Phenacite is a true multidimensional healer.
Physically, Phenacite can assist in the relief of eye strain or tension within the optic nerves.
