Crystal Wands: 101

 If you are here and reading this, then you like crystals! You know that crystals have been used for centuries by people all over the globe, but did you know that there is one aspect of crystal healing that is still relatively unknown to most people out there? Yes, that's right! We are talking about the use of crystal wands! Crystal wands are a great way to deepen your connection with healing and give you the added ability to harness a little more of the power from these magical stones!

 What Is A Crystal Wand:

So what exactly is a crystal wand? A crystal wand is a pointed crystal that is often used for directing energy, amplifying intentions, and performing healing rituals. Sounds cool, right? In this article, we will explore the use of crystal wands in more detail and provide some pointers on how to choose a wand and use it effectively!

Choosing a Crystal Wand:

When choosing a crystal wand, it's super important to find one that specifically resonates with your personal energy and intention. You know that there are many different types of crystals out there, each with their own unique properties, and you should choose one that aligns with your needs. For example, if you're looking for a wand to help with emotional healing, rose quartz or amethyst may be good choices. If you're looking to enhance your intuition, a clear quartz or selenite wand may be a better fit!


I like to also consider the size and shape of the wand. Wands come in a variety of sizes, from small handheld wands to large standing wands that can be used for room cleansing. The shape of the wand can also vary, with some being straight and others being curved or spiraled. Choose a size and shape that feels comfortable and intuitive for you to work with. One that you can see yourself working with for years, not just right now! 

Using a Crystal Wand:

There are many ways to use a crystal wand, and the following are just a few examples to get you started:

Directing Energy: 

One of the most prevalent uses for a crystal wand is energy channeling. Visualize energy flowing through the wand with your dominant hand. You can then direct the energy by pointing the wand towards different parts of the body or around the room, depending on where the energy is needed.

Chakra Healing: 

You can also use a crystal wand to heal and balance the chakras. Place the wand on each chakra point and visualize the energy of the crystal flowing into the chakra, bringing it into balance and harmony.


A crystal wand can also be used as a very effective massage tool. Gently roll the wand over sore or tight muscles, focusing on areas where tension is present. The energy of the crystal will help to release any blockages and promote healing. Pair this with positive thinking and positive affirmations for an extra kick!


Holding a crystal wand during meditation can help to amplify your intentions and focus your energy. Hold the wand in your dominant hand and visualize your intentions flowing into the crystal. You can then use the wand to direct the energy where it's needed.

Cleaning and Charging Your Wand:

Just like the crystals in your collection, it's important to cleanse and charge your crystal wand regularly as well. We do this to keep its energy pure and strong while cleansing the negative vibrations that it comes in contact with. Because a wand has the ability to harness and direct energy, it is even more crucial to perform regular charging!

Smudging: Smudging your wand with sage or palo santo is a great way to cleanse it of any negative vibes that it has collected!

Moonlight: Leave your wand in the moonlight for several hours to recharge its energy. Pro tip: harness the extra powerful moonlight on a full moon for added charging!

Sound Bath: Use a singing bowl or chimes to cleanse and recharge your wand with sound vibrations.

Your Turn!

To wrap things up, crystal wands are most certainly a very helpful instrument for channeling the healing properties of your crystals. If you select a crystal wand that has resonance with your energy and intention, you will definitely be able to utilize its power to channel energy in a positive direction, encourage healing, and make your meditation practice more effective! Especially when you remember to regularly cleanse and charge your wand!

I hope you have enjoyed learning the basics of crystal wands! Like everything in this world, there is always so much more to learn! Be forever the student in life! We have just barely scratched the surface on this topic, and the key to unlocking any crystal's full potential will reside squarely within you. So, follow your intuition on this journey of life, and enjoy!
