Black Tourmaline crystals are ideal for psychic protection for anyone who must work or live in challenging places or circumstances. Carrying or meditating with one of these stones can keep one's auric field clear of imbalance, even in the presence of destructive energies. We all know that we often encounter individuals or situations that emanate 'bad vibes'. Indeed, we can sometimes broadcast them ourselves.
Black Tourmaline crystals act like etheric vacuum cleaners, clearing oneself and one's surroundings of negativity and disharmony. In addition, where such influences are not a problem, Black Tourmalines can provide high levels of purification which serve to elevate one's consciousness.
Black Tourmalines also offer etheric purification, providing a refreshing dose of cleansing to the auric field and all dimensions of the etheric body and are also recommended for ridding oneself of negative thoughts, anxieties, anger and ideas of unworthiness.
Black Tourmaline (also sometimes referred to as Schorl) is one of the premier stones for our age. It has the ability to transmute and purify negative energy, turning it into usable energy. Black Tourmaline also acts to protect one's energy field against attachments, entities and energetic debris.
Black Tourmaline is also useful for those who experience high levels of stress in their work or home lives, especially those who may be countering excessive stress, worry or obsessive behaviours.
Grounding is one of Black Tourmaline's most prevalent strengths. A grounding circuit is increasingly important as we strive to adjust ourselves to the Earth's shifting electromagnetic field. Unless one is well grounded and attuned to the planetary energies, these shifts can increase feelings of stress and negativity. By utilising the supportive energy of Black Tourmaline, one is able to easily move into alignment with these subtle changes.
Affirmation: I banish all negative attachments, within and without. I am purified, grounded and centred upon the Earth.
