Achieving Total-Body Healing with Crystal Wands

Crystal wands are a vital tool in spiritual rituals. Since ancient times, shamans and metaphysicians have been using wands for healing, cleansing, and purification.

Made of a variety of materials, crystal wands are said to have the ability to focus or direct energy through their tips in one direction.

Crystals can occur naturally in a cylindrical or wand-like shape. But many commercial crystal wands today are shaped and polished by artisans. A wand can be pointed on one end and round on the other.

It can be long or short. It can also be shaped to be pointed or rounded on both ends. Some wands can be wider at one end and tapered at the other. Other shapes are:

Different stones have unique energies and properties, so you may need to use more than one wand to invoke different kinds of healing.

What Are the Uses of Crystal Wands?

Crystal wands are classified according to their functions:

1. Chakra healing - For this purpose, the wand is used for healing and unblocking negative energies across the body’s 7 energy centres known as the chakras.

In life, you face problems and issues that cause stress and energy imbalance. Using a chakra wand removes negative energy and restores the harmony of your chakras.

A chakra wand contains 7 chakra healing crystals, one for each of the chakra. If you need to unblock just one chakra, you can work with a wand made of the crystal specifically for that one chakra.

Here are different ways to use a chakra wand:

  • Place the wand on the chakra you want to heal
  • Rub the chakra with the wand
  • Point the crystal wand at the chakra
  • Anoint the wand with a herb or incense

2. Meditation - You can also use a wand as a tool for stepping up your meditation session. It can boost your concentration and help you understand your actions from a spiritual perspective. Wands also unite your mind and body.

Use wands made of higher chakra crystals that activate the energies of the crown or third eye chakras. These wands increase your intuition. They also clarify your thoughts, eliminate confusions, and prime your mind to make decisions quickly.

Here’s how you can meditate with crystal wands:

  • Place the wand on the chakra you want to heal
  • Rub the chakra with the wand
  • Point the crystal wand at the chakra
  • Anoint the wand with a herb or incense

3. Amplifying a crystal grid - After arranging your crystal grid, activate it using a crystal wand to amplify your intentions. From your centre crystal, trace the grid with your wand to guide the energy flow within the grid. Focus your mind on your intention and repeat your mantra to reinforce your intention.

4. Massage - Cylindrical wands with one round end are a great tool for massage. They are said to draw out negative energy and ease tensed muscles.

One way to use a massage wand is to massage the spinal zones of the hand in reflexology. You can do this either on yourself or on someone else. Applying light pressure, press and circle down the thumb, stopping at the wrist.

Repeat this three times and with the other hand. This helps relieve tension or muscle spasms in the back and neck.

Small and large crystal wands are also used in facial massage to increase blood circulation in the face and give the skin a luminous glow.

5. Overall healing - Crystal wands are also ideal for improving your general health and well-being. Healing wands are believed to increase your physical energy and melt blockages in your organs and systems that hinder them from functioning properly.

The rounded end of a wand is said to be ‘receptive’ and works by absorbing energy from where it is placed. The other end, which is the pointed one, focuses or directs energy to where it is aimed at. The pointed end does the sending or transmission of healing energy into the body, chakra, or energy field.

Programming and Cleansing Your Wand

Using your wand for the first time? It’s essential to clean and recharge your wand first to get it to work at its optimum. And while you’re at it, spend some time familiarizing your wand and getting attuned to its energy.

Feel its weight and texture. Learn how to sense subtle changes in its weight, colour, temperature, and vibrations when it encounters negative energy.

It’s also a best practice to program your wand with your intention. Like other crystals, the power of crystal wands is as strong as the intentions you set and the exact purpose you want it to serve.

For example: if your intention for using your wand is to heal a sickness, hold the wand in your hands and clearly speak your intent to it.

If you’re using it to ward off negative energy, try programming it with positive intentions. Below are some intentions you can declare, either in your mind or speaking it aloud:

  • “Positive energy flows through my body each day.”
  • “I’m transforming the negative energy into love and light in my life.”
  • “I’m casting out all the negative energies from today.”
  • “Other people don’t have control over my emotions. Only I can control them.”
  • “I’m at peace with all that’s happening in my life right now.”

To program them into your wand, you’ll want to say as many of these positive affirmations as you want while holding it. And make sure to cleanse and recharge your wand after every use.

One way to purify your crystal wand so it’s always ready for future use is to soak it in clean water for up to 24 hours. To recharge it, let it sit in the midday sun for an hour and bask it under the moonlight overnight (especially during full moon nights).

How to Move Energy with Your Crystal Wand

Did you know that you can use a crystal wand to release pent up stress in your body? Excessive stress and emotions are stuck in your joints and tissues as a result of stressful experiences in the past that you probably haven’t worked through yet.

When not released, these negative energies get stuck in your joints, tissues, and organs. Stuck stress manifests itself in pain, tension, and rigidity in the fascia or connective tissue.

You may use a crystal to remove these blockages and make this cleansing process a part of your stress relief ritual.

  1. Hold the wand over the affected area, with the pointed end facing away from the area being healed.
  2. In a counterclockwise direction, draw a circle (or a spiral) in the air directly above the affected area.
  3. While doing this, focus your mind on the bottled up energy that you need your wand to release – this could be pain, trauma, unpleasant emotions, negative thinking patterns, irrational fears, etc. With your intuition, draw this energy from your body and out of the pointed end of the wand.
  4. Declare words of healing over the ‘issues’ you want to address. Repeat this intention until you feel that the stuck energy is released.
  5. To balance the energy, draw a circle or spiral above the affected area in a clockwise direction. Visualize the crystal releasing a calming and soothing vibration.
  6. This process will create excess energy, so send this energy to someone whom you think needs peace and healing.
  7. Be guided by your intuition throughout this whole process and repeat your intention.
  8. Once done, seal it with a prayer or an expression of gratitude.

Tips in Choosing the Right Wand

Picking out a wand is a similar process as choosing the right crystal sphere or pyramid. Look at one specimen and see how it makes you feel. Start with the wand that calls out to you and meditate with it.

Or choose based on the material that the wand is made of and the healing benefits they bring. Be crystal clear about the kind of healing that you need in your life, then select the wand that can provide you that healing. You can have more than one to use for different types of healing.

To help you select a wand based on its properties, below is a list of popular crystal wands along with their meanings:

1. Rose Quartz - For love and self-care. Also Ideal for massages
