A wand is a channel and focal point of energy. Our wands can consist of copper, crystals, magnets and wood. Magnets have an energy force that is very similar to their electro-magnetic field. The use of magnets with wands moves energy throughout the wand without the help from the user. The use of magnets greatly aids the beginning wand user, but is not necessary. When the components of the wand are placed together properly, along with being enchanted, an energy tool is created. This tool has the ability to send energy anywhere, to anything. It helps break through energy barriers, promotes healing and can be used to manifest (create) nearly anything the mind can imagine. Wands are flowing energy.
HOW DO I USE A WAND? First, rub your hands together vigorously for about ten seconds or more to open up the energy pathways in your hands. Hold the wand in your writing hand. (When writing, you are sending energy from your mind to paper through your writing hand.) Your dominant hand sends the energy and your other hand receives. Feel the wand for a comfortable grip (listen to the wand, it will tell you where as an instinct). Point the wand at your other hand. Envision the energy flowing from your center through your arm into the wand, out the point and into your receiving hand. Whenever sending energy to another person always have their permission first. Never use a wand when you are angry. The wand absorbs that negativity, and you want to release or dilute it, not direct it anywhere specific. Wands, like all subtle energy devices, should be cleansed on a regular basis to keep the energy clean and pure.
WHAT CAN I USE THIS ENERGY FOR? Wand energy can be used for healing, concentrating amulets, enchanting common items, balancing and grounding yourself, increasing a skill, or to create your future the way you desire. All types of healing are ways of opening up the energy flow, and breaking down blockages, returning to a balanced state. Stress, nerves, headaches, cuts, and basically all pain, even mental and emotional, can be healed. All of these wounds are blocks in your energy flow. Stress: the energy pathway of “letting go” is blocked. Nerves are energy pathways from the brain. Cuts: the pathways on your skin have been severed. When you are emotionally hurt it is because you aren't letting go of the pain (energy block). Headaches: blockages of blood or another imbalance occurs when the necessary energy cannot reach the brain. Although if the source of the problem is not solved the healing is only temporary, i.e. headache for dehydration, the headache can be relieved but without water it will return soon.
HOW DO I RECHARGE MY WAND? Because cells act like batteries, eventually a wand will lose its personal charge resulting in lower energy output. To recharge: place the wand in a specially-built pyramid charger for a strong charge. Or alternately place in sunlight or moonlight (preferably full moon). Or hold the wand in both hands and send energy from your hands into the wand. Envision the wand glowing with a brilliant white light. This may take longer but it helps open up the flow inside of you. Charging the wand with both hands can be draining of your own personal energy when charges are needed often. If you feel drained try pulling in energy in from the bottom of your feet and the top of your head and allow it to gather in the center. Pyramid collectors have the ability to constantly collect energy so the power that is stored from the pyramid is intense and long lasting. Wands are sensitive to energy, picking up vibrations around them. If you allow anyone to handle your wand, be sure that you want their energy in it. It is best to keep your wand wrapped in cloth or in a special wand pouch, to keep the wand isolated from the outside world and the energy pure to you, with no contaminants. Often black, violet, blue or celestial patterns seem to work best, unless your intuition tells you otherwise.
CLEANSING: Cleansing is used to remove unwanted energy from your wand. Wands or other objects can be place on Selenite for a period of time to allow cleansing. A few hours for small cleansings and a few days for more needed cleansings, larger pieces of Selenite increase cleansing speed. Another way to cleanse is to use burning sage (smudging). Hold the smoking sage under the wand and envision the smoke absorbing all the negative energy from the wand as it passes. Or place the wand in a river. The moving water washes all unwanted energy away. Be sure to have your wand tied to something secure, so it won't wash away! (Not recommended for wood.)
