What are wands used for?
You hear off of movies like Harry Potter that wands are magick in themselves. Well that is very much not true. You are the magick. You also see that the wands react to words in Harry Potter, also not the case. Wands do nothing more then act like a arm extension and a training wheel of sorts. It helps regulate the energies so that there are no energy leaks. This is for unexperienced witches or wizards, Shamans..ect. People go around (especially little kids) thinking the wands are magick themselves, well that is a fib in itself. No wand has powers. It depends on the caster. Remember a wand is like a arm extension. It moves with your energy. Nothing more.
How do I bless a wand?
Blessing a wand is actually quite simple there are a couple of ways that I know of. Taking the wand and placing it inside holy water, and chanting to your god, or placing it over candle fire, some religions, they say that brings demonic power.
The second way. Take it to your alter, but first dress your alter either in black (evil magick) or white (Good blessing) but besides the names, it really has no effect on your decision for using your magick. Then bestowing your wand(s) in your hands, and praying to your god(ess). Also remember to fill it with your energy (aura).
