This polished Brazilian quartz Ultra Clear Phantom Isis Channeling Altar, weighing 75 grams, standing 3.4 inches tall, is a good size to hold in the hand during meditation or healing sessions and has a flat base to display in your room and altar. This beauty is sure to enhance your living space with its energy!
This specimen has incredible clarity, a textbook phantom formation and a manifestation crystal growing into one face of the shaft. This crystal is a rare find, a mineralogical collector's item and a Lightworker's power tool!
Channeling crystals exhibit a distinctive seven sided face on the termination tip, opposite a triangular face. The heptagonal face can be symmetrical or asymmetrical. A channeling 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.
During a crystal healing or Reiki self-treatment session, place the seven sided face of the crystal in your left hand, pointing in toward your wrist. The left hand is the is the receptive hand. Close your eyes, and relax.
Meditate quietly, observing your thoughts without pursuing them or allowing them to disturb your relaxation. Maintain a state of detached observation, neither approving or disapproving about your thoughts. Allow them to come and go, simply observing their passage.
Maintain your attention on your breath, and attempt to breathe deeply and evenly. Breathe in slowly and evenly from the very bottom of your stomach and inhale deeply, until you have filled the diaphragm all the way to your throat. Exhale slowly and evenly through the nostrils, emptying the diaphragm all the way down to the very bottom of the lower stomach, several inches below the belly button. If you like, count the breaths as you go, until you reach one hundred.
Throughout the meditation, visualize a powerful white light streaming into your body from the crystal, filling it completely as you count your breaths, so that by the time you complete your meditation, your body is completely filled with the white light.
Isis crystals like this one have one or more pentagonal or five sided faces opposed by three sided faces. Isis crystals can assist us in connecting with the Divine Mother.
Isis was known as the Egyptian Queen of Magic and Giver of Life. For both men & women, such a crystal can help to balance the male and female aspects of our beings.
Isis crystals assist us to connect with the qualities of the Divine Mother: nurturing, strength, self love, Universal Love and compassion. Isis crystals can help to foster the native intelligence we all have, called Intuition.
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 within itself, creating a residual outline of the previous point completely enclosed within the enlarged crystal formation.
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.
How do phantom crystals form within the Earth? One possibility is that a pocket of mineral rich liquid 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.
Later, if the pocket is resaturated, another stage of crystal growth can occur.
If the crystal's growth then resumes, over long cycles of geologic time, the dusting of alien minerals covering the crystal's original termination faces is incorporated into a much larger quartz crystal.
This long growth process creates a crystal exhibiting the classic phantom crystal point which can be seen within the 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.
Manifestation stones exhibit fully formed smaller crystals within the primary crystal. They are very rare!
Manifestation crystals come in two flavors: a small double terminated point that grew totally within the host crystal or a crystal that previously bridged into a larger one and has become enclosed within the host crystal over time. Such a crystal appears totally within the host crystal and appears to grow from the matrix at the crystal's base.
Manifestation crystals are considered by crystal healers to be worlds within worlds, and are used to concentrate energy on a desired outcome in one's life, helping to bring focus, willpower, and the Guidance of Spirit to one's aid in creating a desired reality, a new world, as it were.
In doing any kind of manifestation work, it is important to be clear on what it is you are trying to manifest or birth into existence in your life. Whether your goal is spiritual evolution, or to manifest love, wealth and power in your life, it is important to remember that a clear vision of the goal is essential. You need to do a detailed visualization before and during meditation sessions with the manifestation stone.
You can use this stone to contact Divine Mind, Divine Guides, Divine Compassion and in this way, be more fully present to your life.
Mineralogical and Metaphysical Properties of Clear Quartz
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 is the low-temperature stable form of silicon dioxide or silica.Silicon and oxygen are the two most common elements in the Earth's crust. Quartz crystal is perhaps the most common mineral found on the face of the Earth. Sand and sandstone are considered clastic forms of quartz by mineralogists, meaning that they are formed of fragments of pre-existing rocks.
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.
Thus crystals represent the unity that underlies the apparent multiplicity of material creation, the unity of both material and spiritual worlds.
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.
The shining water that moves in the streams and rivers is not just water, but the blood of our ancestors, Chief Seattle explained. If we sell you our land, you must remember that it is sacred. Each ghostly reflection in the clear waters of the lakes tells of events and memories in the lives of my people. The water's murmur is the voice of my father's father. The rivers are our brothers, They quench our thirst. They carry our canoes and feed our children. So you must give to the rivers the kindness you would give any brother.
Quartz crystals, in this worldview, act as the Earth's brain-mind, through which Spirit, the Universal Mind, maintains communication with all parts of Earth's organism, equilibrating the earth's temperature, moisture levels, and other important variables. In addition, quartz crystals and other gemstones collectively create and modulate an electromagnetic field around the Earth, which is a vital component of the Earth organisms auric field, and clear quartz crystals, identified with white light, represent the unifying vibrational frequency that harmonizes the seven rainbow rays of Earth's many varieties of gems and minerals, within that auric field.
Thus in the Native American tradition, any human being who can attune to the power of the quartz crystal is in tune with Grandmother Earth, and obtains the ability to communicate directly with Spiritual worlds.
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.
