Wands have been the traditional healing tool of shamans, healers and metaphysicians for centuries, dating all the way back to ancient Greece! Wands are a great way to direct and focus energy and can be very powerful healing tools.
Having the right tool for any task is not only helpful, but essential. For example, can you imagine cleaning an elephant’s teeth using tools that are made for a human? Not only would it take forever, but it wouldn’t do as thorough a job. The same is true when deciding which wand to work with during crystal healing, or any type of metaphysical work where a wand is useful.
The majority of wands on the market today are artificially shaped, but naturally formed – meaning, the stone is of the earth and made by mother nature herself but cut/polished by us. There are naturally formed crystal points, like Laser Quartz, which makes for a very powerful and healing tool.
Let’s take a look at the graphic I created to give you an idea of the types of wands and how they differ.
As Judy Hall (may her memory be for a blessing) said, ” Quartz is the most powerful healing and energy amplifier on the planet”. The healing ability of any wand is greatly expanded when programed with one’s intention. It is also important to work with universal healing energy vs your own, so as not to become depleted yourself. This is best achieved by consciously allowing source energy to flow in through your crown chakra, down your arm to the hand holding the wand. My ability to tap into universal energy became more pronounced after I was attuned to Reiki energy. Lastly, it is essential that you work from a space of love and light and for the highest intended good.
Let's start with Quartz!
7 of the 11 wands depicted in the graphic are Quartz, however each has its own healing characteristics.
Clear Quartz has the ability to emit both positive and negative energy, depending on if it is directed toward or away from the body. It also has the ability to amplify and focus energy.
Laser Quartz is similar, but much more powerful in its focus, as it has the ability to accelerate energy. The focus of the energy is laser like, and this type of wand should be used with caution – it should never be randomly pointed at anyone and used with very clear intention.
Tourmalinated Quartz wands have strands of Tourmaline running through them. This is a great wand to use on someone who is tightly wound from stress or trauma. Tourmalinated Quartz gently creates an opening for healing.
Vogel wands, and Vogel-type wands, have a very precise vibration. The Vogel wand is named after the inventor, Marcel Vogel. Vogel was a deeply spiritual research scientist that discovered when Quartz is cut in a precise angled and faceted way it maximizes the collection, amplification, and transmission of the Universal Life Force Energy. There are many Vogel-like wands on the market, but few meet the precise conformance of Vogel’s findings. Vogel wands have a female end (shorter/fatter) which draws energy and a male end (longer/thinner) which transmits energy. This type of wand is best used after appropriate training.
Amethyst wands resonate with the Third Eye or Brow Chakra, and stimulate the Pineal Gland, aiding in one’s intuitive vision.
Rose Quartz wands have a soft and loving energy. They bestow a sense of calm and peace and are great at calming the emotions – especially those with a broken heart.
Lastly, we have the Smoky Quartz wands. Smoky Quartz has a lovely grounding and protecting energy. This is a great wand to work with when needing to link the Root Chakra to the Earth Chakra. This wand can also be used on any part of the body where negative energy needs to be removed.
Non-Quartz Wands Matter, too!
Tourmaline wands help clear the aura, they are excellent for balancing and connecting the chakras.
Fluorite wands are artificially shaped, and great for their soothing energy, in particular inflammation.
Obsidian wands are also artificially shaped, and great for removing negative energy within the body.
Selenite wands are awesome! They have a very high vibe, pure vibration. A Selenite wand is great for cord cutting, cleansing the aura or detaching entitities.
As easy a waving a magic wand??
Crystal Wands are great for the energy healer’s toolkit. If you are new to wands or crystal healing, I suggest starting with Selenite. Working first on cleansing your own aura and progressing from there. The Laser or Vogel Wands are not for the novice, in my opinion.
Now that you have an idea of how to work with crystal wands, let the magic begin!
