How to Use a Healing Wand

Healing wands are used to draw in and direct healing energies to specific areas of the body.  They come in a variety of shapes and sizes and are made from various healing stones and crystals.  Some wands are pointed at one end and rounded at the other; while others may feature points at both ends. They can be smooth or faceted, and most often have a polished finish.

The long cylinder of the wand is used to draw energy in and direct it in a straight line.  The point guides  the gathered energy into a specific location.  Wands can be used for overall healing and cleansing of the aura, or targeted specifically to a particular Chakra (energy center), meridian point, or part of the body.

Many healers use their wands to intuitively scan the entire energy body,  feeling for lulls and blockages in the auric field.  If a problem is identified, the wands point is used to direct healing energy to the specific location.  Many times the wand never physically touches the body; other times, the points may be touched to pressure points to heal specific ailments.

Pressure points, or meridian points, are used in acupressure and acupuncture.  The different meridians correspond with different body parts and are activated with needles or pressure to promote the body’s natural healing responses.  Wands can also be used in similar fashion.  Charts that show the meridians and their correlations are easy to find online.  A specific ailment can be treated by finding the correct meridian point and touching the wand point to it.

Programming a wand requires strong focus on a specific intent. Specific stones can be used to help amplify those intentions.  For example, if you are fighting depression or working to overcome addiction, an Amethyst wand would be a very effective tool.  Amethysts are used specifically to heal emotional pain and overcome trauma.  The strong intent, combined with the appropriate stone,  creates a more powerful healing aid.

There are stones that correspond to nearly any ailment or condition you can think of.  Clear quartz or selenite wands are excellent for beginners and advanced users alike. Both are effective for a variety of healing exercises.  Selenite and quartz both absorb negative energies and amplify healing energies.  Selenite is well known for its ability to bring multilateral healing: mental, emotional, physical and spiritual.  Whole being wellness is the key to good health and longevity.

Intuitive healing is something anyone can master with a bit of time, patience and practice.  Learning to read the energy of your own body can help you know when something is not right.  Lay down flat on your back and relax, slowly guide your healing wand down the length of your body, feeling for any shift in energy.  As you get to know the natural rhythm of your own auric field, you will be able to pick up on subtle shifts and differences that could indicate something is amiss.  You can then direct healing energies and intent with the point of your wand to those locations.
