“In general, crystals and stones used for healing are used in a variety of ways…They are worn on the body as pendents, rings, etc.; carried on the person in pockets, mojo bags, and such; used as healing pendulums suspended above the affected areas; placed directly on the affected body part or placed on the appropriate chakra; and sometimes they are used to create healing tinctures that are taken internally, applied to affected body areas, or sprayed around a space…”

Prehnite: My Stone of Choice

I was browsing through “The Crystal Healer: crystal prescriptions that will change your life forever” looking for a stone that would compliment the energies I’m dealing with in my life at the moment, a stone that would enhance any natural gifts and give me a leg up on any health issues, a stone that would enhance any chances for opportunities coming my way, and a stone that I would feel a natural connection with.  After browsing this book, my choice was “Prehnite”.

Prehnite’s energies include: the incredible energy of unconditional love; the enhancement of inner knowledge (intuition); it helps you with spiritual growth and the direction of your destiny; and helps you to recognize the truth.  Physically, prehnite assists in finding the root cause of an illness.  Healers use prehnite for issues of the kidneys and bladder, the thymus gland, shoulders, chest and lungs.

I managed to find a necklace (made with prehnite, jade, and hematite), a prehnite bracelet, and a prehnite ring on Ebay, each one from a different source, all three of them lovely and magickal.  The necklace carries additional energies because it is crafted with additional stones:

Jade:  just as prehnite enhances issues of the heart and unconditional love, so jade is another stone of the heart, traditionally used in the orient as an engagement stone; it’s a stone that enhances fidelity.  Physically, jade is used for healing lung and heart problems; the immune system; and nervous issues.

Hematite:  this stone is very grounding, strongly connected with the element of Earth; it enhances mental organization and rationality; calms nervous or flighty tendencies; enhances original thinking and logical thought processes; banishes negative energy and helps balance the body, mind, and spirit.  Physically, hematite is used to reduce fevers or treat heat exhaustion; to cure blood disorders, nervous issues, and insomnia; it helps to align the spine and minimize spinal issues.
