How to use your Crystal Wand
Before using your wand for the first time, you’ll want to cleanse and recharge its energy (see the energy cleaning page for more information). It’s also a good idea to spend some time with your new wand to attune to its energy and get familiar with its weight and its feel. Later when you’re using your wand, you may be able to sense subtle changes in its vibrations, weight, temperature, or even colour when it encounters negative energy.
Program your wand with your intention. If the intention is to heal a particular ailment or condition, hold the cleansed wand in your hands and state your intent. You can do this with either your inside voice or your outside one. Be sure to cleanse and recharge the wand after every use.
The rounded or flat end of a wand is considered “receptive” and will draw out energy from where it’s placed. The pointed end of a healing wand directs or focuses energy toward the area pointed at and can be used to transmit or send healing energy into the body, aura or energy field.
It’s not necessary for the wand to make contact with the body. It should be held as close as you feel necessary – and this may vary depending on the person or the task at hand. When using your wand for a specific healing task, begin by holding it with the receptive end pointed at the affected area to draw out negative or damaged energy. As you do this, visualise your intention (i.e., removing bad energy). You may want to use a blessing or healing prayer at the same time. You can also move the wand in a counter-clockwise circular motion – pulling it away from the body as you go to draw out the energy – guiding it to an exit such as a window or exterior door.
When you feel the time is right, reverse the wand, aim the pointed end of it at the affected area and focus your intention at replacing the negativity that was removed with positive, healing energy. As you do this, again visualise your intention (healing, regenerative energy – or you may have something else that is more particular to the task that you can visualise). You can also move the wand in a clockwise circular motion over the area. When done, you may want complete the process with a prayer or expression of gratitude.
You can also use a wand to cleanse and unblock chakras. To do this, start at the subject’s feet and move your way up the body with your wand, pausing when you sense a blockage. When you find a blockage, draw out the negative energy and then replace with positive energy, using the same method in the paragraph above.
