Crystal wands have been widely used throughout history and do not always look how you might expect. Some are very raw and to the casual observer will appear as nothing more than a chunk of crystal with a point at one end. Others are carved and polished into interesting shapes.
There are a number of reasons to add a wand to your metaphysical toolbox. A wand can serve as an extension of your arm to remove blockages, balance energy, and focus your intent. You can also use a wand for massage, Reiki, and reflexology treatments.
When you have a number of crystal wands to choose from, there are a few factors to consider. The metaphysical properties will be a great help, as well as the size and shape. Some wands are raw, some are polished, some are plain, and some are adorned with silver and other crystals.
Knowing the purpose of your wand is another consideration. If you are using the wand to channel energy, you will want to find one that fits comfortably in your hand. In addition, a wand that is polished with rounded ends will be far better suited to massage than one that is raw or terminated. Use your intuition to guide you.
As with all crystal work, there is no "right" or "wrong" way to use your wand. The first thing you will want to do is cleanse it of any residual energies that it may have picked up from the time it was created to the time you brought it home. This can be done by placing it next to a salt or selenite lamp, leaving it where the light of the full moon can bathe it, or picturing it being washed in pure, white light.
Then you will want to take the time to connect with it. Keep it close to you, so that you can benefit from it's energy and learn more about it. Once you determine how your wand will be used, you can charge it, filling it with intention for the work you will do together. As time goes on, the connection will grow stronger and you will feel more comfortable using it.
