Crystal wands are solid pieces of crystal that have been carved and smoothed into a ‘wand’ shape. These can be a simple, smooth, pure piece of crystals Or it can be as fancy as you like, with crystals fit into a piece of wood or metal, which then has other crystals, feathers or items attached to it. Copper, gold and silverwire are commonly used to secure or design a wand as these metals are good conductors of energy. Some wands are mainly wood and then have crystals and metals wound around or added to them to increase their energy.
However, for energy, healing and grid work, pure crystal wands are best.
When using a wand in a grid, to direct the intent of the grid outward into the Universe, the bottom end of the wand should be on the inside of the grid with the tip pointing outward. If one wanted to draw the energy of the Universe in to a grid, then the wand should be placed pointing inward.
When working on clients, to draw energy out of the client (ie. negative energy that we may want to clear), point the wand outward and away from the client. Again, point the wand inward if energy needs to be directed into a certain area. This is a great way to calm or stimulate and area of the body or to open up or close down a chakra point.
Wands are excellent for directing energy in a powerful stream or to focus intent. These types of wands are specialist wands called Laser Wands. Please click here for more specific information on Laser Wands.
A pure crystal wand, such as the Blue Obsidian wand below, can also be used as a massage tool and physically laid on the body and rolled quite hard over the skin and muscles in order to work the energy of the wand deep into the muscle tissues. The larger sized pure crystal wands that are smooth and have quite a thick end are great for working knots of energy out of tired or worn muscles, particularly in the back, shoulder and leg areas.
