Black Tourmaline

Energy Center: Root

The Full Scoop: Black Tourmaline shows a strength and determination as it goes about it’s work.  It is one of the best stones for grounding, clearing and protection.  It goes about its work with a sense of “can do” that is contagious.

Many of us are caught up in the emotional drama that surrounds us or the mental monkey-chatter that goes on in our minds. Yet we are unaware of the impact these have on our physical bodies. In addition, a percentage of the population is more comfortable operating outside of their bodies. This may seem like a strange concept at first, but each of us has one or more friends or acquaintances who we think of as spacey or as being an air-head. Oftentimes these are people who are operating on some level outside of the body.  Black Tourmaline can act as an energy anchor and pull their energies back into the physical body.

Black Tourmaline is an ideal stone for cleansing your energetic field of excess electromagnetic energy or of other people’s energies that have been attached to your body.  Some of us are skilled at not taking on someone else’s emotions (perhaps because we are aware of how naturally empathic we are), but maybe not how their energies can ride on our coattails, so to speak.  Black Tourmaline can absorb these energies, thereby clearing our own energy bodies. Many people will place a piece of Black Tourmaline between them and a computer monitor or TV, especially If they spend a lot of time on either.

As it clears the electromagnetic field that surrounds the body it can help to strengthen it from taking on other energy hitchhikers.  It is of course helpful if you remain aware of the intention to keep your energy bodies clear of outside influences.

Think of Black Tourmaline as a workhorse stone that is on your side and ready to assist.  It is no-nonsense, efficient and thorough.  Many people will feel its pull to the Root Energy Center. It is completely aligned with the energy of safety and security that this energy center represents.
