How to Use a Crystal Chakra Wand on Yourself

How to Use a Crystal Chakra Wand on Yourself
A method as old as time, crystals are highly regarded for their metaphysical healing properties. Each crystal healing stone is said to vibrate at a different frequency, and to affect the energetic and physical body in different ways.

Energetically, crystals can help to strengthen your mind-body connection and your connection to the source energy of the earth and the universe. This is good news for anyone and everyone looking to get healthier holistically and naturally.

These healing crystals come in all forms and sizes, and can be used in many ways. This article will delve into how to use crystal healing wands that coordinate with chakras in your body, but first you need to choose the right crystal for you.

How to Choose the Right Crystal Wand for My Needs?

First, trust your intuition. Everything is made of energy and that energy vibrates at different frequencies, including your body! If you can open your heart and ask it what your body needs, you may feel called to one crystal healing energy over another. The color is also very important, as well as the specific energetic healing properties of the mineral. Allow yourself to be pulled by the energy of the crystal and go with your gut.

Crystal Chakra Wands for Aura and Chakra Healing

It is believed that humans have an aura, which is a non-physical energy field that surrounds you. It’s always changing, and is affected by your physical condition, mood, emotions, memories, interpersonal relationships, and more. Although it’s always changing, each person’s aura tends to take on certain overarching tendencies, such as parts that are strong, and parts that are weak.

A very significant part of your aura is centered around your chakras. Chakras are like the organs of your energy body; everything centers around these 7 spinning vortexes. You can use crystal chakra wands to boost or cleanse the chakra powers in your body that affect your aura.

Each chakra is associated with different physical, emotional, mental and spiritual qualities. So the first step in choosing a crystal is to figure out which chakras are weakest and need more healing in your body. Read the list below to see if any of the chakras resonate with what you need healing for in yourself. Based on these attributes, you can choose a crystal that coincides with the chakra. Keep in mind that sometimes we resist what we need most. So if one of the chakras makes you scream “No way, I don’t want that!”... you might want to pause and ask yourself honestly if it’s something you actually really need. Trust your ability to grow and evolve, and trust the crystals to do their job.

How to Use Crystal Wands

When using a crystal wand, it is important to maintain steady and deep breathing. If you feel any excess tension, breathe into the space where you are experiencing pain and envision that pain melting away with the pressure of the wand. Using the meridian lines and acupressure points that run throughout the body, you can focus on a specific area of the body, organ or system. Maintain an open mind as you use your wand so that you can fully absorb the healing energy of this method.

Headache Tension:

To release tension in your head and clear your thoughts, you can gently rub the end of the crystal along your temples or the base of the skull. Remember to breathe in and out deeply and imagine your head becoming clear.

Digestive Tension:

If you ever experience painful digestive tension in your stomach or chest, you can gently use the crystal and push against the solar plexus. The solar plexus is located under the point where your rib cage meets and above your belly button. Stimulating the solar plexus can release tension around a complex network of nerves that support organ function.

You can also gently rub the crystals on acupoints all over your body. Acupoints are energy points where pressure can open up blocked energy channels. The Hapgok, Gokji, and JokSamRi points are especially great for digestive tension because they are connected with the stomach and intestine meridians. See below for reference.

Leg Meridian (JokSamRi)

Lower Back Tension/Pain:

The sacrum is a triangular bone in the lower back which fuses the pelvis and hip bones. Pain in this area is usually sharp and aching and can be due to bad posture or joint strain. A great way to release tension in the lower back is through a sacral massage with crystals by gently rubbing the area above the hip bones in a circular motion.

Sacral Massage

Chest Tension:

Stress and anxiety can cause tension in the chest, which can make it feel like your airways are blocked. You can simply rub a crystal under your collarbones to relieve tension.

Hand Reflexology (for all organs):

There are organs and systems of the body that are associated with acupoints in our hands. By massaging and applying pressure to the hands with a crystal, not only is it quick and relaxing, but it can be an effective way to relieve stress and tension all throughout the body.
