Since ancient times, crystal wands have been traditionally been used as a healing tools by shamans, healers and metaphysicians. Some suggest that crystal wands were used by the inhabitants of the ancient civilization of Lemuria and by the healers of Atlantis. Crystal wands are popular healing tools for today’s healers. Crystal wands are excellent healing tools facilitating chakra balancing, emotional healing, and spiritual development. Crystal wands are energetically cleansing, protective, and may stimulate and activate the human energy field. Crystal wands may be helpful in feng shui for space clearing and environmental blessings. Crystal wands may be used to create sacred spaces for meditation, healing and spiritual work.
Crystal wands come in many different shapes and sizes, as well as, created from a wide variety of stones, crystals and minerals. The healing vibration of each crystal will have a different effect on the physical body, aura, and chakras. Crystal wands are very useful for scanning the aura and the chakras to locate, cleanse and heal blockages. Crystal wands have the ability to focus and direct energy tightly through their tip. Crystal wands may be used to heal the entire body or aura, or on a specific area of the body or on a particular chakra. You may choose a crystal wand to use for a specific purpose or select a wand that is created from crystals and materials that will harmonize vibrational energies with your intention.
Crystal healing wands gather and direct energy. The shape of a crystal wand enables the stone or crystal to direct its healing energy as the wand's point focuses the crystal's energy on specific areas of the body or etheric field. Crystal wands may effectively be used in conjunction with healing practices such as massage, body work, or Reiki. Massaging the body with a crystal wand, facilitates stress reduction and releases tension from the body. The healing energetic properties of the crystal may be beneficially obtained through massage with a particular wand. Smooth, round wands that are rounded on at least one end are great massage tools for healing as they are soothing and cooling and will not scratch or cause potential discomfort to the body. Pointed wands are excellent crystal tools to use in reflexology and trigger point release. Natural laser wand crystals emit a focused energy and may be used to pinpoint and clear the emotional fields of negativity cutting through confusion and entanglements, and removing energetic hooks. Crystal wands are also helpful tools for meditation, psychic surgery, healing crystal grids, and crystal body layouts.
Using a wand
Crystal wands are extremely powerful yet simple to “operate.” Please handle your crystal wand with awareness and with the intention of using your new crystal 'tool' with intuitive wisdom and respect honoring the healing process which is for the highest good.
Before using your crystal wand, you may wish to spend some time with it to become familiar with its energy and to harmonize with it. By allowing yourself to be attuned with your crystal wand, you establish a powerful energetic rapport and empathy with it. The better you know your crystal wand, the more effectively it will work with you forming a wonderful energetic partnership. Hold your crystal wand while you meditate, or just sit holding it and feeling its shape, texture, and weight. Visually examine the crystal wand familiarizing yourself with any patterns or changes in color it may have. The possibilities are unlimited. Listen to your intuition and connect with the energetic vibrations of the crystals. Experiment with your crystal wand. There is no right or wrong way to work with a crystal wand. Have FUN!
The healing ability of your crystal wand is vastly expanded when programmed with intention. It is the power of one's intention that enhances the energy of a wand, so it is a good idea to program your crystal wand for its intended purpose. Your crystal wand should readily and easily accept programming if you have chosen a stone whose healing properties fit well to your intentions.
Scanning to locate and heal blockages with a crystal wand
You may use your crystal wand in much the same way as using a crystal specimen. With your right hand (the “giving” hand) hold the crystal wand horizontally over the body part or area you wish to scan without touching the body part or area. Slowly move the crystal wand over the entire body in a clockwise direction. Pause at the areas of the Chakras and any other areas that may have caught your attention. As you do this, pay attention to any areas in which the crystal wand feels different. Observe. Is the crystal wand vibrating with energy? What is the temperature of the crystal wand? Hot or cold? Does the crystal wand feel heavier? Is the crystal wand moving freely? Once you have finished scanning the aura, go back to the other areas that caught your attention. Where these energetic differences occur are indicators that there may be blockages in the auric field or chakras.
Moving energy with your crystal wand
You may use your crystal wand to get stuck energy moving out of the affected areas. It is not necessary to actually be touching the body with your crystal wand. Hold the crystal wand over the affected area with the point pointing away from the area being healed. To start and move the energy, you may use your crystal wand to draw a circle or spiral in the air above the affected area in a counter-clockwise direction. As you do this, you may want to visualize in your mind, the crystal releasing what may be stuck – emotions, negativity, fears, and pain, and drawing the energy out of the body, through the crystal, and then out the pointed tip. Use your intuition. You may speak healing words, dialog with the “issue,” offer prayers, repeat the healing intention, or just hold space as the energy is released and realigns.
Sometimes it feels as if there is just too much energy. Your crystal wand is helpful for grounding, re-aligning and balancing erratic energies. Hold the crystal wand point down over the affected area. To calm and balance the energy, you may use your crystal wand to draw a circle or spiral in the air above the affected area in a clockwise direction. As you do this, you may want to visualize in your mind, the crystal’s vibration calming and soothing the overactive energies. Energy just doesn’t disappear – redirect and recycle the excess energy. Your crystal wand provides a wonderful way via a “crystal bridge” to direct and transfer energy. Visualize the release of any excess energy that is no longer serving the highest purpose and send it on its way. Send the energy back to the Earth. Send the energy to someone who needs an energetic lift. Send it with peace and love for all. Fill this healing space with golden light, affirmations, thoughts of well-being, whatever feels good for you :). Use your intuition. You may speak calming healing words, offer prayers, repeat the healing intention, or just hold space as the energy is released and realigns.
Closing a healing session with your crystal wand
When you feel the energy healing is finished, it is time to close the healing session with your crystal wand. One suggestion to do so is to slowly move the crystal wand over the entire body in a clockwise direction. Spiral the energy to the heart as you close the aura protecting the body from negative energy and seal any energetic leaks. Pause at the areas of the Chakras and any other areas that previously caught your attention. Observe. Is there any anything else that needs to happen in order for this healing session to be complete for today? Honor your healing process.
Cleansing and Recharging a Crystal Wand
Crystal wands are more powerful when they are cleansed and recharged after each usage. Cleansing your crystal wand prevents the transfer of any harmful or negative energies from person to person. Your crystal wand’s vibrational energies will be regenerated and powerful for the next healing. There are many different ways to cleanse your crystal wand.
Here are a few suggestions:
Water is an easy and effective way to recharge your crystal wand. Please make sure your wand is not created from a crystal that may be damaged by water (Selenite IS water soluble). Rinse your crystal wand, point downward in cool water flow or fresh flowing water such as a natural stream. You may also choose to soak the crystal wand in water for 12 to 24hrs. Crystal wands may be cleansed by sea salt by either allowing sea water to wash over it or soaking for up to 24hrs in a basin of salt water. You may rinse with fresh water and energize in the sun. Please be careful with softer crystalline crystals such as salt or other abrasive substances may mark up the surface of your crystal wand.
You may want to place the crystal wand on a large crystal cluster or with other crystals that are cleansers and energizers such as Selenite or Carnelian.
You may want to place the crystal wand under a pyramid. The pyramid’s geometric structure is the perfect place to purify and energize your crystal wand.
You may smudge the crystal wand with Sage, Sweet grass, Cedar or incense.
Another way to recharge your crystal wands is to place them back in the Earth. Bury your crystal wands in your veggie/flower garden dirt and energize your plants. Or take your crystal wand to the beach and place it in the sand.
Crystal wands love to be recharged in the sun or moonlight. Leave crystal wand out in the sunlight for an hour or so. Please make sure your crystal wand is not a crystal that fades in the sunlight. Moonlight works as well, especially if it is under a full moon.
