Think of a wand as a powerful amplifier and transmitter of subtle and spiritual energies. You can use a wand to absorb and amplify your own energy field as well as pull in energy from the natural world and spirit realm to combine them in a very focused way for encouraging and influencing healing or positive change. You can use your own concentrated intent or meditative state to do this as you work with a wand.
Holding the wand in your hands and close to your chakra energy centers (especially the heart chakra) you can intend and allow the conductive materials that make up the wand body (the wood core, the clay, the copper wire and especially the natural crystals), to absorb your own spirit body energy and combine with the unique subtle energies and personality of each crystal present within the wand.
If you can simultaneously become aware of the strong connection the crystals have to the Earth and your own strong connection to the Earth as well -you may start to become aware of a subtle pull as grounding energy travels up from the center of the earth and in through the base of your spine, up through the center of your body and out through the top of your head. As you concentrate on this happening you may feel our own heart chakra energy at the center of your chest increase exponentially.
You may also experience a sense or feeling of your own energy pulsing or emanating out in all directions from the center of your body, from your hands and from the wand as you do this. The wand may seem to pulse with energy within your hands. It can be a very powerful experience for some people and you may begin to feel like you have suddenly expanded energetically several times over.
When you are at the point when you can feel your energy expanding, (but are feeling completely grounded at the same time) that is a good time to call on your totem animals or spirit guides to add their own energy and guidance if you desire their help or input. If you work with a totem animal spirit and your wand coincides, this process is even more powerful.
You will be able to feel this spiritual energy enter your body usually through the crown chakra at the top of your head and flow down through your body to combine with your body's and the Earth energy that is already flowing through you and through the wand. You may feel the energy circling and expanding out from your heart chakra. You may experience dreamlike visions at this time or have a sense of greater knowing and understanding of your current circumstances or that of a loved one.
At this point in the process you and the wand have become one energetically, (and more powerful than you would be apart). Now is the time to concentrate on your intent of healing or change. Picture it as clearly in your mind as you can and let yourself experience the intense emotions associated with it. You may laugh or cry out loud at this time without even meaning to- as the emotional response can sometimes be very powerful for some people.
You can now point the wand in the direction you would like energy to flow if you are working on healing a particular person's energy field and they are there in the room with you. Or you can point the wand at the flame of a candle if you are doing spell work in that way. However, pointing the wand is not necessary at all. Having crystal clear vision as to what your intent is and the change you want to happen is what matters most. Also, knowing without doubt that this change that you desire is for the Universal good. If you doubt even slightly that it is, then you should stop the process immediately and put the wand down. You will only be doing yourself or others harm if you continue.
