How to Work with Black Tourmaline
Updated: Aug 30, 2020
Black tourmaline is a high frequency crystal that helps to neutralize and clear negative energy, and protect you from harmful vibes. Here’s how to work with it in crystal therapy, your home, and in your everyday life.
Wear it daily:
to create a protective shield around your aura
to lift your energy up quickly
while doing channelling work
to shield yourself against negative energy, especially if you are a highly sensitive empath or get hit with a lot of negative energy
In crystal healing
to neutralize extremes
use black tourmaline in your dominant hand and selenite in your receptive hand to pull out lower stagnant, stressful energy out of your system and purify and clear your energy, respectively
place it over areas of pain directly to clear blocked energy and neutralize pain as black tourmaline helps naturally accelerate the bodies healing process
Use it in your space
To help balance geopathic stress from outside factors such as noise pollution, or for any other external stress, place a bowl of black tourmaline in your home or office near that area
Crystal for Front Door
You may have an alarm system, but that’s not going to help when bad energy is trying to enter your space. Always have a piece of black tourmaline by the front door.
Black Tourmaline is a highly cleansing, but also protective stone. It helps to purify you of any energy you don’t want to bring home with you after a long day, and casts an energy shield over your home to keep others from sending their negative energy your way.
Crystal expert, Heather Askinosie, recommends placing a piece of Black Tourmaline in a bowl of equal parts salt and water.
She has each member of her family make their own bowl, and set their own intention for protection with each piece of black tourmaline.
That way, everyday when they come home, they can each connect with their Black Tourmaline stone to connect with the energy of their cleansed intention.
You can also make this a little ritual , as well
Here’s what you need to do ... Combine the negative energy removing properties of sea salt and black tourmaline with this simple ritual to have your space vibrating at its highest potential.
You will need 1 Mason Jar, 2 TB of sea salt, enough water to fill the jar halfway and 1 piece of black tourmaline. I also recommend before you do this ritual.
Draw your blinds, open your windows and pull back all the curtains to allow the maximum amount of fresh air and sun light into your space.
Sweep and clean your front door – entrance to your home – to keep the energy positive and uplifted.
Clean your stovetop – this symbolizes your financial and health life.
Hold your black tourmaline in both your hands and set an intention for the energy of your space.
Fill your jar halfway with water. Add your black tourmaline and sea salt to your jar.
Place your Mason jar in a central area of the room you want to clear.
Leave your jar in place for 24 to 48 hours.
After this time period has passed, take your crystal out, rinse it and place it outside in the sun for a minimum of 48 hours to clear and recharge it.
Pour the water mixture into the toilet, flush it and watch all the negative energies go down the toilet.
Clean your jars and wash your hands.
Repeat as often as needed.
If you’re worried about someone stealing your crystal outside the front door, you can also hide the Black Tourmaline in the soil of a potted plant.
Not only will this protect your protection stone, the soil will also keep your crystal charged!
