A few weeks ago one of my classmates was gifted a healing wand by one of her Spirit Guides. A metaphysical wand, not an actual crystal wand. He gave it to her in a clairvoyant meditation and said she could use it to heal herself or others. This week she told us about how it's worked for her. I'm trying to remember what I've received from my guides. One time I got a cauldron. Another time a frying pan. I think the message there was to cook. LOL. I haven't actually thought about it since (tsk, tsk, tsk). Today I was feeling a bit cheeky and asked my guides if I could have a healing wand. When I asked I was sitting in a circle, waiting for my Reiki Teacher to initiate me as a Reiki II Practitioner. I don't need a healing wand, but I'd like a wand. My spirit guide echoed that thought. Instead, he gave me what I like to call a Harry Potter wand, one that I can use to manifest things in the physical world. How exciting! He also said I can use this now to attract clients to my Reiki Practice, readers for my soon-to-be-published book, etc.
I accepted it gratefully.
Tonight I had my first chance to give the wand a go. When I came home from my full day Reiki Workshop I was knackered. My shower wouldn't heat up, not good news, and it turns out my boiler went out. The pilot light goes out when it's windy; and it takes ages to get it going again. I've never been able to switch it back on. My landlord usually has to send someone, and it takes them 10-15 minutes. It's Sunday night and my chances of getting someone in now were slim. I fiddled around with it for a couple minutes, and then decided to ask for help. I put my left hand on the boiler, called on Archangel Raziel to breath fire into it, and then channeled Reiki at the boiler. I think Doreen Virtue wrote about a time when she healed her car's engine with her hands, and got it to start again. I figure I could do the same for the boiler. The pilot light started flashing and the flame came on! In under one minute! How Amazing!!! That's when I remembered the magic wand, not before. I'm not entirely sure why I called on Raziel. His name popped into my mind when I put my hand on the boiler. Raziel is said to hold the secrets of the universe, and that has to include my elusive boiler.
This reminded me of a card that keeps coming up lately, the Queen of Earth from Doreen Virtue's New Angel Tarot. I took it to mean that I need to make more time for those around me, which is true. Today's magic wand brings me back to the visual and being able to manifest this pot of gold. For myself and for others, as everything we share comes back to us tenfold. This is where I am right now, an exciting place to be!
