The past six months or so I’ve been taking part in a spiritual circle where we study a variety of topics, ranging from healing and astrology to tarot and most recently, how to create and consecrate your own magic wand. This weekend’s homework involved making use of the New Moon in Libra to create a magickal wand and attune it to our energy. I had a wand already, one that oddly enough, used to be part of a set of chopsticks (though I never used it to eat, LOL!)
The funny thing about magick wands is they do work, as I discovered when I tried to activate a carnelian crystal with the help of my wand a few years ago. Wands are associated with the element of Fire, and that fiery energy flows through the wand into our physical reality. I don’t know what I was thinking (probably that the wand do anything) and I held the crystal in my left hand and pointed the wand at it. After a few seconds I began to feel a burning sensation in my palm and I had to stop what I was doing. My mistake! One that I learned from quickly.
For months after that day, whenever I thought about that wand or that “rookie mistake” my palm would start to hurt all over again. It was like the memory triggered the pain. Not unlike Harry Potter’s scar, the one on his forehead, and how it was triggered whenever he thought about the person who created it. But as a healer, I couldn’t leave the wound open in my palm and eventually I stumbled across a crystal that can be used to repair tears in the energy field: Fluorite. A few months after the incident I healed the tear by placing a fluorite crystal in my left palm, using my right to heal my energy field with Reiki. It worked - my left hand is pain free!
While that tear was energetic and the result of improper use of magical wands, it made me think about emotional wounds, and how when we think about pain from the past we often relive it. Rather than dwell on the past, or worse yet, bury it, we can work with healing, crystals and yes, even magick to heal and release it. Most of you have already downloaded my Chakra Healing & Magick book, I’d encourage you to go through the chapters slowly and heal yourself inside and out with the techniques that are included there. The crystal healing chapter towards the end is one of my favorites, but please work your way through it slowly. If you haven’t downloaded your copy, follow this link for details; the Chakra Healing ebook is gift for subscribers!
If you would like to read a proper introduction to magick (my book focuses on chakra healing primarily with a magical slant towards the end), I would also love to recommend Practical Magic for Beginners, by Brandy Williams, one of my faves!
