Prehnite is valued as a calming and soothing stone. It helps expand the heart chakra into unconditional love by releasing emotional pain from the past and encouraging new beginnings. It is a gentle detoxer for the lymphatic system. It is a good stone for a healer to heal themselves with as it replenishes energy that may have been depleted. When working with energy, it is important not to lose sight of the balance between giving and receiving. For every ounce of energy you expend on helping others, prehnite ensures you fill yourself back up.
Prehnite is a somewhat rare stone — most of it coming from China and Africa but it can also be found in Australia, Scotland, and even in the United States!!! These particular pieces were mined by friends of The Cyprus Cabinet in Southbury, Connecticut!
Prehnite is a perfect companion for the modern healer, teacher, parent, lover, friend. It is honestly just the perfect companion. Energy is currency and we spend A LOT of it without even knowing. Every ounce of energy that gets shared with the people, places, and things around us actually comes out of you. This is not a bad thing but it is important to make sure you compensate accordingly and remember to fill yourself back up.
Being able to clearly identify your needs and to actually fulfill them is something prehnite will nudge you to do, but you also need to meet it half way. If you are overworked and don’t take the time to rest your mind, body, and soul this stone is not pure magic and will not fix all your problems. BUT if you are overworked and you can identify that you need to take a personal day or even a night alone to yourself that is a step in the right direction. Even better if you can have some time of mindfulness — cook a healthy meal, brew an herbal tea, take a hot bath or shower, have a glass of wine, whatever it is that will metaphorically fill your cup back up.
It links will and desire to the heart, encouraging a sense of peace and assurance when it comes to understanding that the universe will bring you what you need and what you can handle. It is important to have trust and flexibility instead of fighting against that flow — lean into the will of the universe and let it guide you. Prehnite is a stone of releasing the ego and working up to a state of spiritual surrender where something bigger than you is at the wheel and you are gracefully, peacefully, and joyfully along for the ride!
The inherent chaos of our lives in this day and age is an easy distraction and an easy way to lose track of time. Who doesn’t find themselves rushing through something they have looked forward to just to get to the next thing? Our modern brains move a million miles a minute and Prehnite is here to SLOW YOU DOWN. There is a sense of presence and clarity that comes with it, grounding you in the current moment so that you can take it all in and truly absorb the beauty and goodness that is around you.
Prehnite has a way of activating the solar plexus and heart chakras to stimulate a divine connection that allows for heightened spiritual connection and downloads of information. It is spiritually charged to invite you into a space that goes beyond intuition and can only really be described as divine assistance. I have had realizations and connections come to me when working with Prehnite — often when specifically dealing with healing the energy of others. I have heard Prehnite be called the “reiki stone” for its clarity and ability to channel in the divine.
when you might want some Prehnite handy:
if you are feeling energetically drained because you shared it all with others
if you are having a hard time trusting that the universe leads the way and that you can never really have complete control
spiritual action! if there is something your heart desires to offer the world, you might just need a little ego release and spiritual surrender
