What Is A Chakra Wand?
A chakra wand is a linear-shaped healing device. Some chakra wands have seven crystals that correlate with the body’s chakras. Others contain one specific crystal targeting certain ailments.
For one reason or another, the chakras can fall out of balance and cause ripples of negativity, chaos, or discontent throughout your life.
A chakra wand is a useful natural healing tool for bringing awareness back to the chakras and targeting the areas that need attention.
Chakra Wand Origin and Meaning
Chakra wands are deeply attuned to the seven chakras because they are the source of life-energy in the body, but where do they come from? In Chinese healing, life-energy, or chi (qi), syncs the physical to the metaphysical to foster healing throughout all the body’s complex facets.
In Hinduism and Buddhism, this life-energy falls in seven specific areas along the spine and skull, called chakras.
Crystal healing wands enable you to harness divine life-energy to bring healing to concentrated areas while providing optimal balance.
Before we dive into the benefits of a chakra wand, let’s look at exactly what we’re healing.
What’s The Purpose Of A Chakra Wand?
Crystal healing is an ancient method used to harmonize the mind, body, and spirit. Historians believe the ancient Sumerians were the first to harness the mystical frequencies of energetic crystals for healing purposes. That means that crystal healing is an ancient modality dating back to antiquity.
Today, there are various forms of crystal healing, including crystal cleansing and purification, chakra meditation, among other techniques.
Chakra wands offer holistic healing, meaning they heal the body, mind, and spirit. The goal is to use a particular crystal wand to activate a specific wheel of energy. In addition to various crystal wands, there are different types of chakra wands, each with healing properties and benefits.
Chakra Wand Benefits
The primary benefit of a chakra wand is to clear stagnant or negative energy. Ultimately, stressors reach us each from different angles. For example, you may feel anxious about a new relationship or financially strained.
Stress manifests as painful emotional experiences or physical discomfort. Chakra wands break through these energy blockages by targeting specific vortices, or chakras, to alleviate strain and activate the chakras to promote healing.
By directing vibrational currents from specific crystals, you’re able to target weakened chakras and promote the flow of sacred life-energy.
Chakra wand benefits include:
- Strengthening the mind-body connection for combined healing from a seven crystal chakra wand.
- Targeting ailments related to individual chakras to foster the flow of energy to these blocked points.
- Locating stagnant energy, cleansing these areas with vibrational healing, and amplifying the chakra’s connection to the celestial realm.
We know we can bring healing to each energy center, but is there a more important goal for using a chakra wand?
Glad you asked!
Healing The Seven Chakras
We briefly touched on the seven chakras in the body, so what are they, and how does a chakra wand help?
It’s helpful to understand the chakras so that you can target your chakra wand toward the right ones. Alternatively, you may choose to buy a crystal wand devoted to healing a specific chakra.
Below, we’ll outline the seven chakras and which crystal focuses on healing that energy center along the spine.
1. Root Chakra
The first and lowest chakra grounds you in security and stability. But sometimes, you may feel fatigued, overly tired, lacking motivation, and apathetic.
2. Sacral Chakra
The second chakra swirls energy in the lower abdomen below the belly button. When energy blocks here, you may feel weakened and less vigorous physically and emotionally.
3. Solar Plexus Chakra
Located in the upper abdomen, the third chakra bestows you with confidence and self-esteem while regulating the digestive system’s healthy functioning. However, you may experience indigestion and heartburn when energy stores here. Also, it’s common to feel anxious and robbed of creativity during this blockage.
You can break through this negative obstacle by flowing healing energy to the solar plexus chakra with a Calcite, Topaz, or Citrine crystal wand.
4. Heart Chakra
Your heart center is the source of love, empathy, and compassion and fosters the connection between yourself and others. Yet despite this well of passion, energy blockages arise from loneliness, heartbreak, and isolation. Physically, the heart chakra connects the upper and lower chakras, and stagnation can cause heart issues and asthma.
If you’re struggling to feel confident, open your heart, or practice self-care, devote time to heal your heart with Rose Quartz or Green Tourmaline chakra wands.
5. Throat Chakra
A healthy, energetic throat chakra builds strength in communication. When energy blocks the throat, communication with yourself and others weakens. As a result, you may experience a sore throat and sensitive teeth and gums. If you’re struggling with verbalizing your feelings, lacking a filter, or gossiping, you may have a blocked throat chakra.
Open the lines of communication by practicing healing with a lapis lazuli crystal, aquamarine, or turquoise chakra wand.
6. Third Eye Chakra
Also called the brow chakra, the third eye is the source of divine energy located between the eyes. Here, you are most connected to your intuition and foresight. If you’re experiencing more headaches than usual and difficulty focusing, it could be that your third eye is misaligned.
Use an Amethyst or Black Obsidian healing wand to cancel out the noise and reconnect with your third eye chakra.
7. Crown Chakra
The seventh and highest of the body’s energy centers is the crown chakra. This sacred well of intelligence connects you to the divine, celestial universe. When energy flows freely, you’ll experience enlightenment and a heightened sense of direction and purpose. However, when energy blocks here, the mind narrows, and stubbornness ensues.
And that wraps up the seven chakras and their corresponding crystal wands. As you can see, we can target certain auras or the entire seven chakras, depending on the wand.
Types of Chakra Wands
There are many types of chakra winds, including large and small, colorful and monochromatic, translucent, and opaque. Despite these variances, the goal is singular: to heal the mind, body, and spirit using specific techniques associated with crystal healing, which we’ll expand on later.
For now, let’s explore some of the most popular chakra wand types to help you find the right one for you.
These are wands devoted to serving specific chakras. Rather than having multiple crystals shaped into one wand, they contain one crystal. For instance, an amethyst chakra wand contains only amethyst, the purple crystal associated with the crown chakra.
Terminated Chakra Wands
These crystal wands are either terminated or double-terminated. Terminated wands have a point on one end, while double-terminated wands have points on either end of the wand. These wands can be multi-use with various crystals or composed of a sole crystal.
Small and Large Chakra Wands
How big is a chakra wand? They range in size, with small wands between 3-4 inches long and large wands falling between 7-10 inches. When shopping for chakra wands, remember that it’s not the size that’s important; it’s the purpose and healing intention.
Plus, chakra wands are designed by nature, so it’s natural for them to come in a spectrum of sizes, shapes, and colors.
By now, we’ve covered the meaning, purpose, and types of chakra wands. Are you ready to learn how to use a chakra wand on yourself? We thought so!
How To Use A Chakra Wand On Yourself
Using a chakra wand depends on what type of healing you need. For some, gently massaging an amethyst wand at the temples and base of the skull can alleviate headaches and neck tension. For others, placing the wand under your body or in your hand and setting an intention will pulse the wand’s energetic frequencies to the desired area.
Ultimately, chakra wand healing falls into two categories: physical and emotional healing.
When energy stagnates in the chakras, tension takes over. Chakra wands are great for physical healing because they alleviate discomfort and pain. The vital step is to choose chakra wand crystals that connect to your targeted area of pain. Refer back to the seven chakras above and their associated crystals to find the right ones for you.
From there, you’ll want to practice deep, consistent breathing to work through the tension. Locate your area of pain — whether it’s by acupressure points or targeting pain points — and gently massage the crystal at the problem area.
As many of us know from experience, emotional pain is often invisible but equally debilitating as physical pain. Chakra wands help target emotional and mental strains triggered by stress and individual circumstances.
For emotional trauma, follow the practice below to activate the seven chakras and reconnect with your inner strength.
