A few words about “Magic Wands”

This is a practical book and story for EVERYONE, not just a story about Pretend Magic.

This is a story about REAL Tools that you likely run across every day of your life– but fail to realize exactly what they are.

“Magic” properly refers to Unconventional Usage.

A lot of books and popular fiction has been written about Magic Wands over the past hundred years. In folk lore, the idea of a Wand Practitioner, a Sorcerer, a Witch, or other “Magical” character using Magic Wands is certainly nothing new. In recent years of course, Magic Wand Lore has become an extremely fashionable topic, so you can see Magic Wand pages sprouting up like weeds as often as you see kids carrying around toy Magic Wands on Halloween.

However, the REALITY of Magic Wands is something else altogether, and this is what this particular book on all Wands and Magic Wands is all about: The actual practice of using “Unusual Tools” is to change one’s position in the You-niverse, done through the use of one’s TRUE Magic Wands.

The main confusion comes from the notion that a Magic Wand must look like a Baton, like a orchestra conductor’s baton. But this is like saying that all human beings have the name John Smith. Nothing could be further from the truth. Incidentally, the setting for this book on Magic Wands is that of “Historical Fiction”, that is to say that names have been created to substitute for actual characters that use these Magic Wands, but none the less, the drama and stories about the use of the Wands here comes from actual practice and experience. But back to what a Wand looks like- leave your preconceived notions behind, and you will then come to understand what a Magic Wand actually looks like.

Once one abandons the limited and fictional concept that a Magic Wand is a Baton, and a Baton only, then one begins to approach the historic and physical reality of what a Wand really is– and what it is, is an Unusual Tool. And potential Unusual Tools are EVERYWHERE.

What anyone interested in Magic Wands, or for that matter, what anyone interested in using Tools to help them navigate reality must do is look at the actual INSTRUCTIONS. That is what this, and this book only purports to do. This book has not been written to supply yet another bit of entertainment only. This book is created to give the reader an actual practical guide- in the manner of this story- about HOW TO USE UNUSUAL TOOLS.

The language of The Book of Wands may in fact be above the level of what would be expected of an kid’s book but then, this is not your typical kid’s book. This is for kids and adults who are interested in what “Magic Wand” really means and what they are really about.

When fictional books about Magic and Magic Wands have long gone out of fad and fashion- the “Real” Book of Wands will continue to entertain, and yet remain a practical and useful guide for all.
