Title: Egyptian Healing Rods
Post by: Lionheart on December 22, 2012, 05:31:05
 If anyone has ever used or had these used on them I would love to hear about your experiences with them. They have been strongly a focus in my Dreams lately. Once again I am drawn back to the Egyptian time period. First the Pyramids, now these. I will be broke soon if this keeps up, lol.

 I'm not going to give a link on them because I am not here to advertise them. I just wanted to know beforehand if anyone has had any experiences/results with them.

 Thank You!  :-)

I have not used an Egyptian healing rod before and am certainly not an expert on them. However they seem similar in form and function to wands and crystals charged for healing purposes.

Your magical cosmology might be different but I have a belief that the power comes from the intent the person puts into a symbolic tool, not the tool itself (for the most part). If you believe in animism then yes some of that power comes from the spirit or genii loci of the object, and when you work with it you're actually talking to or "conjuring" that spirit.

But if you have dreams about the rod specifically and also Egyptian culture in general, go for it! It sounds like someone wants you to use it for some reason or another.

 Thank You for your reply!  :-)

 They are on the way, so i will soon find out their purpose.

 Through the years I have had some custom Wands created as well, to my desired specifics.

 My altar beside my bed is filled with many Crystals, Meteorites and all kinds of unique natural and man made stones. As well as Pyramids made of pottery, Himalayan Salt and Crystal.

 The Occult has been a big part of my life for many years now. The Occult true meaning being "knowledge of the hidden".

I also have some crystals and meteorites (or at least I believe they're meteorites, they are extremely dark, dense and magnetic) but they're not a part of my altar. Your altar sounds beautiful with all those crystals :) I've actually never used crystals for magical purposes except for scrying and conjuring their genius loci.

Let me know how the Egyptian healing rod goes! And just out of curiosity, how would you describe your magical practice? I'm guessing either Neopaganism, Kemetic or eclectic?

 Eclectic, I started in Paganism, moved on to Wicca, looked into Druidism and was actually invited to join a Grove in a neighboring city. But felt they were all to strict on their beliefs. I had a problem with each of them individually and decided in the end to stay Eclectic.

 But my favorite has been Dragon Magick!  :wink:

 MJ and I create and sell our own Dragon Sculptures, known as Elemental Dragons. Each is one of kind and has it's own special purpose, per say.
