Known as the Stone of Prophecy, Prehnite has long been used by South African indigenous shamans. Prehnite boosts prophetic abilities, and is a good stone to use when working with tarot or crystal balls. Prehnite enhances visualization and spiritual "knowing," and aids in connecting with higher realms, including your higher self as well as spiritual and extraterrestrial beings. Lucid dreaming is induced by Prehnite, while dreams are made easier to remember and nightmares are reduced.
Prehnite is said to "heal the Healer," and can be used to revitalize your personal healing environment. Put Prehnite in your garden to create a healing sanctuary for yourself. Use Prehnite with energy grids to enhance protective fields, calm, and bring inner peace.
Prehnite fosters a strong sense of trust in Universal principles. As such, Prehnite stops hoarding of both possessions and of love by fostering a belief in the abundance and power of the Universe to manifest whatever is needed.
Prehnite clears toxins from the body and balances the meridians, and helps you say “no” to unreasonable requests. Prehnite encourages acceptance, emotional release, forgiveness, and compassion. It helps to remain true to self, uplift the spirit and find clarity of heart and mind.
