Since the beginning of the year I’ve made lots of research in the area of meditation and tools that could help me improve my well being, relax me and calm me down, because God knows how much I have been needing it this year.
As I am trying to go through the motions of life while grieving, I found it essential to find some kind of ways to make my life easier. As I’m writing this, I’m still not one hundred percent back in track, but I dig and find ways to help myself.
As I do, I realize that I’m not the only one in this situation, I thought that some of you might be happy to take advantage of some of the things that are helping me.
Some of such things are crystals. As I’m learning more about them, purchasing them, and testing them out, I’m going to write about it on this blog.
Recently my friend Catherine Alexandra talked to me about some psychic messages she was getting from Sophie, my four legged child, who passed away late last month, and she advised me to get some healing crystals, including the black tourmaline. Which I did.
I actually got four of them so far. One that I wear as a piece of jewelry around my neck and 4 more that I lay around the house or nearby me.
So, what is black tourmaline and what can it do for your? If you’d like to know, just keep on reading.
The Property of the Black Tourmaline
While I was doing my research I quickly got very interested in the black tourmaline because of two particular strong features of this wonderful and powerful crystal.
1) It’s a grounding stone. It helps connect your energy system with that of mother earth.
2) It’s a negative energy banisher.
Now, that alone, is priceless, but there’s actually more to the black tourmaline.
The black tourmaline is a natural crystal with a high level of ion, aluminum, magnesium, sodium, potassium and lithium. While there are several colors of the tourmaline stone, the most popular one is the black tourmaline which has properties of healing, calming, dispelling stress, worries, fears, anxiety and anger. It also has physical healing properties as you’ll see below.
Many crystal healers use the black tourmaline as a grounding stone (often used in root chakra healing). They also use this special crystal for protecting themselves and their healing environment from any Electro-Magnetic Field (EMF), and for transforming negative energy into positive energy.
The black tourmaline is one of the most recommended crystals because of its strong power to dispel negativity from other people, from what is called psychic attacks (whether done on purpose or unwillingly), from our own negativity, and from residues of negative energies that at time hang around places, or rooms.
How to Use Back Tourmaline Crystals
The black tourmaline comes in all kinds of shapes and sizes, and it’s fair to say that the larger the stone, the more energy it will have, but if you have several smaller stones that will work as well.
If you have a medium to large size tourmaline you can set it in the room you are in to make sure the room is clean of all negative energy.
If you spend long hours in front of the computer, it’s a good idea to have a medium size black tourmaline nearby to clean your area of all magnetic field (which is not healthy). It works well for cell phones as well. Magnetic fields are known to make people very tired, robbing them of all energy. A black tourmaline can help you repulse such negative energy whether you are one of those people or not. Even if you don’t feel worn out, doesn’t mean you’re not getting the negative electro-magnetic vibrations.
You can carry a small black tourmaline in your pocket or wear it as a piece of jewelry (medallion, necklace, or bracelet) so it will protect you everywhere you go.
Many people walk around with tons of negative energy fields all day long, and having a black tourmaline on you will spare you from such negative energy to get to you.
If you happen to be an empathy or are a very intuitive and compassionate person you could actually be even more susceptible to absorb the negative energy that’s around you, so having this shield of protection is highly recommended.
Have you ever noticed yourself coming back from a shopping mall exhausted? I know I have. I always do get exhausted when I get back from crowded places. Do you know why that is?
It’s because you’re probably what is called an empath and are absorbing other people’s energy, which is more often than not, negative.
When you leave those crowded places, you are filled with those negative energies that have attached themselves to you and you feel tired, or even down and depressed at times. This is when having a black tourmaline in your person will be invaluable. Try it next time go to a crowded place and see how it works for you.
The Use of Tourmaline during Meditation
If you meditate while laying down on your bed, place a black tourmaline a couple of inches below your feet. If you are meditating sitting on a chair or on the floor, place a couple of tourmaline crystals on each side of your feet or knees.
During meditation, the black tourmaline which is connected with the root chakra located at the base of the spine, will help you control the energy for kinesthetic feeling which is the foundation of our physical and spiritual energy.
Meditation with black tourmaline will help you gain stamina, strength, feeling of security and spiritual energy.
The Black Tourmaline and Physical Health
As I’m sure you already know that mental and spiritual well-being is directly connected with our physical well-being, and needless to say, the black tourmaline will also have a positive effect on your physical health.
The black tourmaline is especially associated with relief of torn or strained tissues such as muscles pain, scar tissue, numbness or even arthritis. But it’s also an excellent crystal for strengthening the immune system, the heart, the adrenal glands and the colon.
The black tourmaline is invaluable, and I’m so grateful that my prayers and meditation led me to the right people (person) which in turn led me to this incredible powerful gem which is the black tourmaline.
Go get you some black tourmaline, and see what it does for you. Let me know what you think and observe with them.
