In addition, it’s a powerful tool for:
Neutralizing negative energy
Neutralizing a Space
I also like it for transmuting negative energy that people might bring into a space. I keep a fairly large Black Tourmaline next to my front door.
Black Tourmaline is ideal for helping us to connect and ground to Mother Earth. Ancient peoples were (are) very aware of all of this and knew to monitor the cycles and to stay closely connected to the planet. Being closely in-tune allows us to regulate many bodily functions and feel GROUNDED… dissipating any excess energy to the ground.
Our body’s various vibrational frequencies can be moved out of our dominant oscillary rate very easily when we experience stress, which we are constantly doing, especially since we are not regularly connecting with Mother Earth to re-balance. Crystal healing naturally entrains (synchronizes) our body back to its base resonant frequency. Black Tourmaline is associated with the Root Chakra.
I highly recommend staying grounded as much as possible and, yes, we can use crystals to help us to do that:
Black tourmaline, smokey quartz, and hematite are all good grounding crystals. Earthing is amazing ~ Get barefoot and go outside which is the ultimate in grounding. Your feet are meant to connect with Mother Earth! That’s why animals are so well grounded and in-tune. They’re always barefoot!
Black Tourmaline has two critical physics properties:
