The Magnificent Benefits of Black Tourmaline

The Magnificent Benefits of Black TourmalineSince 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.

  1. Interesting post indeed 🙂

    Never heard of this particular stone – black tourmaline, or might have a different name this end perhaps. Yes, we have all other kinds of stones and people wear them as jewelry or carry then around for various reasons like keeping evil powers away, some to lose weight, some are for reducing blood pressure etc. Each one is for a different purpose.

    I didn’t know Catherine getting psychic messages from Sophie, I wonder what they were and how you must have felt about it all. One reads about such things in the papers and magazines a lot, but to have someone go through it is different. I am sure it must be working for you to get all your positive energy back, something I must try too as you mentioned it’s good for those working around computers (which is all the time for me!)

    Thanks for sharing. Have a nice week ahead 🙂

    1. Hi Harleena,

      Well, my personal development is an interesting and wonderful one. I’m learning more and more and I’m getting connected with all the right people, which is a positive affirmation that I repeat every single day 😉

      So far I have only small size stones, but I am going to get a bigger one soon. I have one around my neck at all time right now, and I actually feel more clam, and confident since I’ve been wearing it. I do take it out at night, thought because it can keep you awake 🙂

      When I feel stronger about it, I will blog about the things that Catherine has shared with me in regards to my Sophie, and I hope that it will help many people who need this type of information.

      Thank you so much for coming, and have a great weekend!

  2. Hey Sylviane,

    This was interesting. I have one crystal that I’ve had now for about three years and it’s fluorite. A friend recommended it years ago and it sits on my desk. This is the definition of what this little gem does:

    “Fluorite promotes spiritual and psychic wholeness and development, truth, protection, and brings peace. It protects psychically and in the physical realm. It helps one meditate and learn to go past the “chatter” that our minds tend to generate when first learning to meditate Fluorite is a great stone to calm and relieve anxiety and stress. It can help get rid of mental blocks and similar mental issues. Physically it is used in crystal healing for pain, general health throughout the body’s main skeletal and muscular systems. All colors are also good for auric cleansing. Mixed colors bring enhanced protection in the areas enhanced by all combined types. Clear fluorite guards against psychic attack and strengthens consciousness. Blue fluorite has the quality of protecting the emotions and restoring emotional balance. Purple fluorite strengthens mystical insight, psychic awareness, and can open the third eye. Green fluorite is an excellent all purpose healing stone that promotes healing on all levels. It also promotes self-love.”

    I have the clear one but that’s my whole knowledge of crystals. I just learned something new about another one so thank you for sharing this and I’m glad it’s helping you.

    1. Hi Adrienne,

      Wow, I have never heard of fluorite, but it seems to have a lot in common with black tourmaline. I love to learn about crystals, they are amazing and almost as soon as Catherine told me about black tourmaline I had to get some.

      I wear one as a medallion around my neck everyday now and I feel calmer and more confident. Yesterday I had my first speech at my toastmasters’club and I did great. I attribute that in part to me being so calm and I feel that’s because of my tourmaline.

      Recently I’ve taken a big decision, about doing something that I’ve been wanting to do for a few years now. I’ll tell you all about it this evening. There’s also something else that’s going to include an invitation to each one of you gals 🙂 We’ll see if any of you will actually do it. Ah I know that you don’t want to miss that hangout tonight, Adrienne 🙂

      My life has taken a huge turn this year. A huge one for the worst at first, but some of the things that Catherine has told me is actually starting to actualizing.

      Thanks for coming and see you later.

  3. Hi Sylviane,

    Did you know that I used to sell and use crystals since the late 1980’s? I still use them and they DO work fine!

    The benefits of black tourmaline you mention are spot on! I even used to wear a ring with this stone when working with others to absorb negativity. I also sleep with rose quartz next to my bed.

    My favorite one I still have as the pieces have broken along the way is a hand mined crystal that I programmed. Long story, but welcome to the world of using Crystals! It is amazing what they can do because of the energy each one has.
