This unique 1.625" long 40 carat gemstone quality water-clear John of God Pendant Wand with Citrine Crown was created by Lawrence Stoller, critically-acclaimed artist and crystal cutter who is known world-wide as a fabricator of magnificent works of art created in partnership with Nature & Light.
Use this beauty as a pendant or hold it in your hand for use as a miniature wand in meditation and for healing. This pendant wand exhibits a unique energy signature that combines the protective, purifying and uplifting properties of citrine with the healing properties of John of God quartz.
This beauty 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 of Casa Crystals. The gemstone quality Citrine comes from Lawrence's private stash.
"'Creative genius' is a term I have seldom used in my life," says William E. Boyajian, President of the Geological Institute of America. "But I use it now to describe Lawrence Stoller, for these are the words that typify both his passion and his ability to preserve and protect beautiful crystals of nature -- and thereby transform them into creations that inspire countless thousands of people around the world."
Lawrence's work is in worldwide museums & collections.
Lawrence has created a magnificent centerpiece for American Express's Eleven Tears World Trade Center Memorial. He thinks of crystals as "frozen light". Lawrence fashioned this beautiful Casa Quartz and Citrine Pendant as a "Platonic" or "perfected" version of quartz and mineral forms found in nature.
To showcase the subtle beauty of this Platonic form of crystalline nature, Lawrence preferred to avoid any type of metal finding, bale or basket, simply drilling a small hole in the female end of the crystal for a chain or cord.
The pendant comes with a simple black cord and a beautiful golden clasp, created by Lawrence to complement the elegant design of this unique pendant, complete in a velvet jewelry box for safekeeping.
This pendant was carved from highly prized quartz crystal from the Casa Dom Inacio, Abadiania, Brazil and exhibits fantastic clarity, brilliant finish and faceting. You'll see some lovely wispy inclusions in the shaft of this pendant. Lawrence often prefers to leave some inclusions in his pieces, because he prizes the natural beauty of quartz crystal. None of these inclusions come near the flawless surface of this lovely pendant.
John of God -- His Story
João Teixeira de Faria, also known as João de Deus (John of God), or Medium João, is perhaps the most famous trance channeling healer alive today. Over the last decade, John of God has been featured on Oprah, The Discovery Channel, and many other venues in a variety of media.
Medium João's home base is the Casa Dom Inacio, Abadiania, Brazil.
Much misinformation and disinformation about John of God has been spread on the Internet so it is important to be very discriminating when researching this unique healer. The best information about John of God is available in the book John of God by Heather Cumming and Karen Leffler.
John of God is a humble man, who can neither read nor write, but who channels a large number of Beings of Light to bless and heal multitudes. Medium João says, "I don't heal. God heals. I am just a man." Medium João channels and directs divine energy for healings free of cost to any person visiting the Casa in search of a cure.
João was raised on a farm, and worked doing menial labor, and later as a tailor. At a very young age, João earned a reputation as a clairvoyant and visionary.
"Sometime in 1951 João Teixeira de Faria, age nine, rightly predicted which houses in his aunt's neighborhood would be damaged or destroyed by an impending windstorm," reports Publisher's Weekly.
One day he had a vision directing him to a nearby town, where he was welcomed by several people who said they had been expecting him. João entered the village and the next thing he recalled, he was being hugged by the grateful villagers, who told him he had spent several hours healing many people, although João had no memory of these events.
Medium João agreed to work with a large number of Spirits, discarnate doctors and healers who work through John of God's body to aid suffering humanity. He became famous, drawing the attention, envy, fear, anger and gratitude of numerous religious, medical and political functionaries in the region. During these years, John of God worked as a mendicant healer, traveling from place to place, alternately harrassed and jailed and celebrated for his healing work.
Eventually he was guided to Abadiania, and founded the Casa.
At the Casa, John of God and the myriad of Spirit Healers he channels have performed healings on millions of people over the last thirty years. People with untreatable diseases have gone on pilgrimages to the Casa from all over the world to benefit from the healing power infused into the lush gardens, and to experience psychic surgery performed by the "entities" associated with this amazing individual.
Many pilgrims have reported on the extremely potent healing energy centered at the Casa Dom Inacio (House of Ignatius), named after Medium João's patron "entity", St. Ignatius of Loyola. Directly beneath the Casa is a large deposit of pure quartz crystals, and many Lightworkers believe that the quartz in this Power Spot amplifies the healing energies channeled by Medium João and distributed throughout the area by the many Spirits of Light who commune with João.
Now we are blessed to offer Casa crystals for sale to the public. Casa crystals are infused with the energy of the Casa Dom Inacio, and of the Spirit Healers working with Medium João.
"Crystals are originally sourced from mines mostly in Goias, central Brazil, not far from the Casa," according to our source within the Casa. They are brought to the Casa each week and energized by the Spirit Healers working through Medium João.
"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."
Mineralogical and Metaphysical Properties of Citrine
Citrine is a powerful semi-precious stone which is a rare, more energetically powerful form of quartz crystal, characterized by a yellow color, ranging from white to deep copper. It is less common in nature than amethyst (another member of the quartz family, and one of the two semi-precious stones present in ametrine) but both are found in quartz veins, as well as volcanic locations and elsewhere in nature.
The color of citrine derives from small amounts (approximately 40 parts per million) of iron in the quartz. The difference between citrine and amethyst is only the oxidation state of the iron present in the quartz. Citrine typically is formed when an amethyst becomes heated to the point where the iron held within the crystal undergoes a further stage of oxidation.
Citrine is an excellent stone for clearing and cleansing body, mind, heart and aura.Citrine is considered by metaphysical rock hounds to be a stone of strong protection because of its ability to cleanse the aura. According to Melody’s valuable book, Love is in the Earth, citrine is one of only two minerals on Earth that do not hold or accumulate negative energy. Instead citrine transforms negative energy and dissipates it once it has been rendered positive in nature.
Citrine is said to aid in digestion and to activate the thymus, which regulates our immune system, thus promoting health and well-being. In addition, citrine is said to provide a feeling of comfort and optimism. I must admit, that when I wear or work with citrine, I have a great sense of well being and protection.
Citrine activates, opens and energizes the third chakra, including the navel and solar plexus, stimulating both the physical body and the mind, increasing endurance and elevating energy levels while promoting emotional balance (unlike other stimulants such as caffeine). Citrine is an excellent stone for clearing the aura of negative emotions.
Citrine also stimulates the crown chakra, our doorway to Cosmic Consciousness, and helps unite the seven lower chakras and the physical body with the energy frequency of the Higher Self, aligning the eighth chakra with the rest of the energy body.
In our experience, citrine cleanses the emotional and etheric bodies, and stimulates the holder’s vital energies and physical body. It imparts a strong sense of protection if worn on the body or placed in a room where energy work takes place or groups gather.
Used in energy healing, citrine is said to transmit the golden light of unity consciousness, which is tuned to the very highest vibrations of an open eighth chakra -- the chakra above the crown of the head, said by the Western New Age chakra system to be the location of the Higher Self.
This crystal has been cleaned with Universal Life Force Energy, and given an energy attunement using Reiki, a Japanese technique of energy healing, so it will continue to receive and transmit Universal Life Force Energy direct from the Source of Creation. It has also been cleaned and charged with the natural energy of sunlight. It is ready for you to program according to your own needs and desires.
