Regarding the Charkas
Chakras are circular (or flower petal shaped) vortexes of energy lying across seven different points on our spinal column. The seven chakras are connected to different glands and organs in the body and are responsible for uniform distribution of “Chi” (also called “Qi” or Praana or life energy) through them. When there is a disruption in this life energy or a blockage in any one or more Chakras, the individual may suffer from health or mental issues. Thus, the Chakras form the energy ecosystem of every individual. A deficiency in this ecosystem can wreak havoc in the different areas of life.
Each Chakra is also associated with specific chakra colors. In this brief guide, we shall study the different chakra colors as well as the areas of life the different chakras impact.

Regarding Gemstone Wands
Since ancient times, crystal and gemstone wands have been used for healing all over the world. Today, wands are still a common healing tool used by massage therapist, meridian therapist, reiki energy healers, and meditators.
Wands come in many different shapes and sizes, and also in many varieties of stones. Wands may be long or short, and the cylinder can be smooth or faceted. The elongated shape of a wand allows the stone to direct it's healing energy in a straight line. The wand's point will focus the crystal's energy so that it may be used on a specific area of the body.
Methods of Healing:
Wands can be used in many different ways to heal. They can be used to heal the entire body or aura, or they can be used on a specific area of the body and even on a particular chakra. They may also be used to scan the auric field to locate blockages, and then purify them. Massaging the body with a gemstone wand helps to release tension from the body, while the stone's healing energy is transferred to the body. Pointed wands are used in reflexology by holding the stone's point at certain pressure points on the hands and feet, to heal ailments in particular areas of the body.
Choosing Your Wand:
Wands come in a variety of gemstones and crystals, so there are many types of wands to choose from. Different stones have different healing energies and effect the body, aura, and chakras differently. So it is nice to have a variety of wands to use for a variety of different purposes. You might choose to build a collection of wands made from a variety of gemstones.
When selecting a wand to use for a specific purpose, you should choose one made from a gemstone that is suitable to your intention. It is good to know a little about the healing properties of different gemstones so that you are able to select a stone that resonates best with the purpose that you wish to use it. For example; clear quartz stone is excellent for gathering, storing, directing, and transmitting energy. A clear quartz wand is a good stone for beginners because it can help to heal any ailment on any area of the body or aura.
Get To Know Your Wand:
It is a good idea to spend some time with your wand to become familiar with its energy and to harmonize with it. The better you know your wand, the better it will work for you. You may want to hold it while you meditate, or sit with it while feeling its shape, texture, and weight as you visually examine it. Spending time with your wand will help you become attuned to it and you will also be receiving it's healing energies at the same time.
The power of one's intention drives the energy of a wand, so it is a good idea to program your wand for its intended purpose, especially if it is specific. If you have chosen a stone that fits the healing properties of your intention, the wand should easily accept programming.
Cleansing and Recharging:
Crystal and gemstone wands should always be cleansed and recharged after each use. It is very important, especially when used on multiple people or for multiple purposes. The easiest and most efficient way to cleanse a wand is to soak it in water for 12 to 24 hours. (Make sure first that your stone is not one that can be damaged by water.) Then you may recharge your wand by leaving it in the sun for an hour or so, or leave it out under moonlight for an entire night, which works best when the moon is full.
There is no right or wrong way to work with a wand. When working with wands, whether or not you are using them for healing, is important to listen to your intuition. As you work with your wand, you will eventually come up with a method which works best for you.
