This Clear John of God Double Channeling Phantom Altar, weighing 6.5 ounces, or 184 grams, and standing 3.2 inches tall, is the perfect size to hold in the hand during meditation or healing sessions.
It does have a small nick at the base of this altar, most likely caused by inner inclusions near the base. This chipped bit is visible in most of the pictures, but to see a closeup scroll to the bottom of the page. Know however, it doesn't affect either the energy signature nor the ability of the lovely stone to stand alone.
Because this powerful channeling wand contains a distinctive seven sided face opposite a triangular face so it is classified as a channeler. Crystal healers and meditators say this crystal has a unique ability to connect the user to inner spiritual guidance, and to sources of Higher Wisdom in spiritual worlds, such as Spirit Guides, Angelic Presences and Spiritual Teachers.
This beautiful crystal comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Casa Crystals, the authorized American distributor for crystals imbued with the energy of the entities of Casa Dom Ignacio, Abadiania, Brazil. Satya Center is an authorized dealer for Casa Crystals.
This gorgeous crystal has tremendous clarity in 80-90% of the shaft and termination tip and a beautiful inner landscape.
"There are as many ways to work with Casa-energized stones as there are people with an unlimited number of ideas," reports our Source inside the Casa. "Here is a meditation that I have found to be effective:
"Hold a crystal in your hand and close your eyes. Visualize the parts of your body, emotions, mind, or higher self that is experiencing pain or dis-ease. See the vibration of the stone enter that part of your body and change the vibration there to one that is more in harmony with the stone. Feel the two different vibrations-- the one of your body and the other of the stone--side by side, singing a song together in harmony."
"Keeping your eyes closed, move the crystal around your body touching any places that feel good. Some parts of your body like the feeling of the cool stone, and others like the feeling of the warm stone after it has been heated in your hand. You can also direct the pointed end of the stone to areas in your body that need help, and direct energy from divine source, through your hand, amplified by the stone, and into your body."
Message from the Entities Associated with João de Deus
"My children, we are joined together in this moment, as you will allow it, each in his or her own capacity to hear, and according to your individual script and your willingness to be open. That you are here now is proof that you higher self has approved this direction. Still, the choice is yours. While entities can offer guidance, the guidance should always be screened through your judgment, because the experiment only works when free will is in force. Your personal guides have brought you here and now we invite you to open up to a team of entities that can help you in your process, your journey, your path. We work closely with your guides and your higher self, be assured, and adding to that your free will choice you cannot make a mistake. Feel the energy of these words and know in your heart what is appropriate for you in this moment. We are all agents of the path, working toward the same goal but from different directions, as many different directions as rays of sunshine."
"A ray of light is a metaphor for divine energy. Crystals play with light, direct it, concentrate it and magnify it. That is why a gem sparkles when you hold it in your hand. Now, imagine that the sparkle you see when you hold Casa Crystals in your hand, or on your body is not the sparkle of light, but instead it is divine healing energy entering your body. As the energy enters your body it retunes the energies that are there, retuning them to the vibration of peace and harmony that you are when your spirit is not in a body. Your body is an imperfect container created by you and for you as a learning tool. The healing that you receive from the entities of the Casa through these crystals is part of that lesson. The healing will remind you, both consciously and unconsciously of what you willingly forgot when you chose to accept the Adventure of Earth."
"You can work with Casa Crystals in any way that you will allow. They will provide their retuning function whether or not you use them with intention. However, when used with intention, Casa Crystals become much more powerful, and you will begin to see manifold and manifest change in your life."
"Your instinct is to push away that which would help you. This is a normal response because when you encounter a higher vibration it works on you like sandpaper against your skin. You shy away from this discomfort naturally to avoid the pain. But the fine gem must be cut and polished from the rough rock, and in this process suffer the pain and waste of the grinding wheel. So too must you endeavor to keep yourself focused to stay against the grinding wheel, to stay in the divine healing current so that you can be that fine sparkling gem that you were meant to be."
"For many years medium João has worked in this service in a small town in central Brazil. And now the time has arrived for his work to be more available to people around the world. He is a medium of extraordinary ability yet we are all mediums and capable of miraculous things. Working with the entities of the Casa will help you to find healing and in so doing, to expand your natural gifts, your mediumship, and your abilities to heal others."
Properties of Clear Quartz Crystals
The word crystal comes from the Greek word "krystallos", meaning ice. The Greeks found quartz crystals high in the frigid Alpine mountains, and Pliny (c. 62-113 A.D.), the foremost historian and mineralogist of his time, believed quartz crystal was ice that had frozen so hard it would never thaw.
One common legend is that crystals were originally heaven’s holy water, poured out by God into the aethers. As the holy quintessence descended toward the Earth, it froze into ice in outer space, where it was petrified into permanent solidity by angels so that when it fell to Earth it would be available permanently for the protection and blessing of mankind. [See “Rock Crystal: Nature’s Holy Stone”, by Frank Dorland]
Quartz crystals have been used by healers, spiritual teachers, and scientists of the sacred throughout history to receive, transmit, store, focus, amplify, transform and balance the various forms of energy found in our Universe, all of which can be considered to be interchangeable forms of Universal Light.
Quartz crystals have this marvelous ability because, metaphysically, quartz crystal expresses the unity of the five elements (Earth,Air, Fire, Water, and Ether or Spirit).Crystals grow deep in the earth and form much of the earth’s crust, yet crystals, like the element air, allow light to pass through them. Crystals are fiery in that they have piezoelectric properties yet they are watery in their hexagonal molecular structure which resembles snowflakes, and in their ice-like appearance. Crystals are quintessential expressions of the element of Ether or Spirit, which is synonymous with Universal Life Force Energy, the fundamental energy that sustains all forms of energy in the known universe.
From a metaphysical viewpoint, quartz crystals are cosmic tuning forks, harmonizing the soul, mind, heart and body of the user with the vibrational frequencies of Spiritual worlds – which are after all simply realms of light resonating at a much higher frequency than the material world.
Native Americans revere quartz crystals as the brain cells of Grandmother Earth. Viewing the Earth as a living organism, primitive stones such as granite and sandstone comprise the skeleton of the organism, the Earth’s crust is the skin. Vegetation and water channels make up the lifeblood of Earth’s body, and metals and minerals function as glands, nerves and sensory organs.
Metaphysical and Mineralogical Properties of Phantom Crystals
This phantom was created when a faceted tip formed at one point in the crystal's growth, but the crystal's growth was interrupted for some reason, and then the quartz crystal resumed its crystallization, eventually enclosing the phantom crystal outline within itself.
One possibility is that a pocket inside the earth surrounding the crystal dried out, stopping the crystal's growth. When a crystal's growth is interrupted for some reason, a thin dusting of such minerals as pyrite, hematite, chlorite or galena can gather on the termination faces.
Perhaps the pocket was later resaturated, triggering another stage of crystal growth.
If the crystal's growth then resumes, over long cycles of crystalline growth, the dusting of alien minerals covering the crystal's original termination faces, is incorporated into a much larger quartz crystal than the original.
This long growth process creates a piece with the classic phantom crystal point which can be seen within a larger crystal. Sometimes one can see two or three phantom points within a given crystal wand, and in such cases, the growth process was undoubtedly stopped and started several times over unthinkably long periods of geological time.
The final result is the formation of a "phantom crystal", much larger than the original crystal structure at the point of growth interruption.
The phantom typically displays one or more translucent thin, cloud-like layers of mineral deposits resembling small points. Each layer of cloudy inclusion contains a revealing snapshot of the crystal's termination faces in the remote past. Each phantom marking represents a different stage in the crystal's growth -- and each stage can last for hundreds of thousands of years! Each phantom crystal reveals its own evolutionary pattern -- it is as though we can see the record of the transmigrations of the crystal's soul.
It should come as no surprise that phantom crystals help us to unearth our own histories, and to come to terms with unresolved issues from our past. Phantoms help us to see our own messy histories and our painful karmic issues as part of a beautiful spiritual evolution. In this way, they help to restore a sense of inner balance, unity and an aura of magic where there had been pain and struggle.
We often use crystals for psychic protection, purification and to clarify things of a spiritual nature. See our article on Psychic Self Defense for more information along these lines with many suggestions on how to protect yourself from unwanted energies.
