Channeler or Channeling Quartz Crystal – Revisit

As a reminder, we are going to revisit all the quartz crystal types, condensing the information to just a few items to make remembering easier. This week we’re going to revisit Channeling or Channeler quartz crystals.

Channeler or Channeling quartz crystal

There is a long blog post on this, posted previously, here. I will try to extrapolate on that information rather than repeating it.

FIRST – WHAT ARE CHANNELER or CHANNELING QUARTZ CRYSTALS?

How do you determine if you have a Channeling quartz crystal? Channeling or Channeler crystals are one of the metaphysical configurations determined by counting edges of crystal faces. To avoid being super repetitive, you can find a more in depth discussion of faces and edges of faces, here, and also, here. This will just be a brief overview.

In a Channeling crystal, the main face will have seven edges and the face directly behind the main face will have three edges. This is known of as a 7-3. To determine whether the crystal is a Channeler, you will have to count the edges of the main (largest) face and the edges of the face directly behind it.

In the pictures, I made a little skip in the line to show where the edge of each face starts and stops. Sometimes, like in the example below, one of the edges is very tiny, so count carefully!

The Channeling face isn’t always symmetrical, as in the crystal pictured above, but the most “textbook-perfect” Channeler quartz crystals usually are symmetrical.

ASK YOURSELF THIS QUESTION: WHAT PURPOSE DO ACTUAL CHANNELS SERVE?

Just as we did last time with Cathedral or Lightbrary crystals, to better understand or condense the meaning of a Channeler crystal, it is helpful to understand what actual channels do (what are their functions?). What is a channel? According to the online dictionary:

Channel:

  1. a length of water wider than a strait, joining two larger areas of water, especially two seas.
    “the channel to the north led us to the Black Sea”
  2. a band of frequencies used in radio and television transmission, especially as used by a particular station.

HOW DOES THIS KNOWLEDGE OF CHANNELS TRANSFER TO CHANNELER CRYSTALS ?

In thinking about actual channels, simply apply that to Channeling crystals. Easy enough!

In the case of both examples above, the channel basically connects two larger areas for an exchange of some sort. In the case of water, you might imagine yourself as one body of water, your target or goal as the other body of water, and the channeling crystal would assist as a conduit for a flow of information (etc) between you and the other.

In the case of a media channel, there is “invisible” information constantly streaming in the ether. A channel (such as on your TV or radio) helps you to tune into the area with a specific frequency or information. So, in this case, you might imagine whatever information you want to access and the channeling crystal will help you to narrow the input so you receive the specific information you are looking for.

WHEN WOULD A PERSON CHOOSE TO WORK WITH A CHANNELER or CHANNELING CRYSTAL?

Channelers help you access higher wisdom, either in the form of your Higher Self or Spirit Guides, or of Angels. They can also bring you love and light from beings in the higher realms.

When working with a Channeling crystal imagine yourself on one end of the “channel” and your desired connection on the other. It might help to remember that the crystal helps to channel that exchange between you and the other side.

IN SUMMARY

By remembering what we know about actual channels, we can put Channeling crystals to better use. The Channeling crystal acts as a conduit to help us to more easily access the area or information we are aiming for.

I hope this review of Channeler or Channeling crystals has been helpful to you. Next up for review is crystal Clusters.

CHANNELER or CHANNELING CRYSTAL – To access higher wisdom, guides, other-world beings

This week we’ll discuss the metaphysical properties of Channeling or Channeler quartz crystal points; what they are, how to determine if you have one, and how to work with their unique energy. They are referred to as either Channeler OR Channeling, both are correct and are used interchangeably.

Metaphysical description: Channeler quartz crystals help you access higher wisdom, either in the form of your Higher Self or Spirit Guides, or of Angels. These crystals exude a crisp, regal energy. Channeling crystals can bring you love and light from beings in the higher realms.

When would a person choose to work with a Channeling crystal?

As the name and metaphysical description implies, you might work with a Channeling crystal to contact Spirit Guides, Angels or other entities. They have a high vibration, and a focused, connecting energy (think of a “channel” on the television or radio, it connects you to a particular broadcast). A channel when referring to water connects two larger bodies of water to each other. Apply those familiar descriptions of a channel to that of a Channeler quartz crystal and it may help you visualize the energy represented.

channeling grid by Genn John - Arkansas Crystal WorksYou might create a grid using the Channeling crystals on the cardinal points (North, South, East West) and pointing IN to the center to bring the energies of Spirit Guides or entities IN to you, or pointing OUT of the center if you are reaching OUT to same. In the grid above, I placed Channeling quartz crystal points facing OUT on the cardinal points (N, S, E, W) and facing IN on the intermediate points (NW, NE, SW, SE), and so on. I also placed a large Channeler quartz crystal at the center of the grid to hold the energy.

You can create a small grid which would sit on a tabletop like the one pictured, or cast a large circle and create your grid, inside the circle, on the outer edges, with you in the center, holding a Channeling crystal. The sky is the limit! Obviously the more Channeling quartz crystals you have access to, the better, as your grid (or cast circle) grows in size.

If you only have one Channeler crystal, I would place it in the center of the grid or circle and use other quartz points, programmed to channel, on the outer edge to amplify the energy of the Channeler.

How do you determine if you have a Channeling quartz crystal? Channeling or Channeler crystals are one of the metaphysical configurations determined by counting edges of crystal faces. In order to understand what I mean by this, we need to discuss faces (also called facets) and edges of faces.

Channeling or Channeler quartz crystalHere is the description I give about Channeler or Channeling crystals in my book Understanding the Crystal PeopleThe termination (point or top of a crystal) is divided into what are called facets or faces. The faces are what make up the pointy end of the crystal.

The largest face of the point is called the “main face” (which is also the front of the crystal).

In a Channeling crystal, the main face will have seven edges and the face directly behind the main face will have three edges. This is known of as a 7-3. To determine whether the crystal is a Channeler, you will have to count the edges of each face.

Beginning with the main face (remember, this is usually the largest one), put your thumb or finger on one of the edges of the face to keep track of where you started or discover the counting method that works best for you and use that one. Keep track of how many edges (sides) each face has.

If it is a Channeler quartz crystal, the main face will have seven edges. Directly behind that seven-sided face, there will be a three-sided face (triangle). As I said earlier, this configuration is described as a 7-3. If giving the Channeling crystal a numerically descriptive name seems odd, it is because there is also a 7-3-7, which is a Transmitter, and a 7-3-7-3-7-3, which is a Dow or Trans-Channeler. We’ll discuss each of these fully in later posts. If, when you are counting edges of faces on your crystals at home, you come up with more than one 7-sided face, make note of where you keep that crystal for the upcoming posts on Transmitters and Dow crystals, they are very special. You can also click the following links for brief information on a 7-3-7 (Transmitter) or this link for a 7-3-7-3-7-3 (Dow) if you can’t wait to find out.

As you can see, in most of these pictures I have outlined the area of the crystal to which I am referring as I did with the posts describing Barnacles and Bridges. I made a little skip in the line to show where the edge of each face starts and stops. Look at the crystal without the lines and see if you can count the edges. This will help familiarize you with counting the edges of your crystals at home.  Sometimes, like in the example below, one of the edges is very tiny, so count carefully!

The Channeling face isn’t always symmetrical, as in the crystal pictured above.

However, the most textbook-perfect Channeler quartz crystals usually are symmetrical (as in the Gas Phantom pictures above and below). To be clear, Gas Phantom crystals aren’t always Channelers and Channelers aren’t always Gas Phantoms. These just happened to be among the pictures I had on-hand.

The triangle or three-sided face behind the seven-sided face may be very small, or it may be large as it is in the crystal pictured above.

Here’s a side-view of a Channeler or Channeling quartz crystal.

Above is another side-view, this time with the edges of the Channeling face outlined.

Sometimes a crystal will be Empathic (chipped or damaged) but they may still be a Channeler.

You can extrapolate (form an opinion or make an estimate about something from known facts) and count where the sides of the face were before they were lost to the damage. You can still work with these Empathic Channeler crystals even though the entire Channeling face isn’t present.

To recap:

  • A Channeler is a crystal that has a seven-sided face with a three-sided face directly behind it (7-3).
  • We may work with Channelers to access our Higher Self, Spirit Guides, Angels or otherworldly entities.
  • Creating a crystal grid incorporating Channelers at the cardinal points is a great way to work with them.You may make a small grid to hold the energy and represent a larger space. Alternately, you may create (cast) a circle large enough to sit or stand within, place the Channelers at the cardinal points, and optimally, hold one while working from the center of the circle.
  • Another great way to work with these crystals is to hold one and sit quietly and connect to the Channeling energy. This is the optimum method if you only have one Channeling quartz crystal.

I hope you have enjoyed this discussion about Channeler or Channeling crystals; what they are, how to determine if you have one, and how to work with them. Next time we’ll discuss quartz crystal Cathedral or Lightbraries.
