Getting Past The Magical Learning Curve

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 one already, 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 wouldn't 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 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. 

Many of you downloaded my Chakra Healing & Magick book, I would encourage you to go through the chapters slowly, healing and activating your chakras before approaching the chapters on crystals and magick. 
The 1st chapter is a Gift HERE. The book peels back layers of doubt and false beliefs so that we can let our inner light shine brightly in the world (like these flowers!)







If you would like to read a formal introduction to practical magic (mine focuses on energy healing with a magical slant towards the end); I would love to recommend Practical Magic for Beginners, by Brandy Williams, one of my favourites by far!
