Black Tourmaline (Raw).
Black Tourmaline is devoted to grounding spiritual energies, bringing a clearer expression of Light into the world and into the lives of those drawn to its powers. It furthers the ability to remain radiant in the darkest of circumstances, and to maintain a spiritual consciousness while living among those who are not always in the Light and do not understand the love of the universe. [Raphaell, 132-133][Melody, 654-655]
Natural Tourmaline wands are considered quite special and channel a high-powered electrical energy capable of transcending physical laws and producing phenomenal healing. The positive force of these Light tools effectively clears blockages in the aura and removes negative energy. Black Tourmaline wands may be placed at the knees or feet with the terminations facing the toes to direct negative energies out of the body. They can also be used to direct energies from the crown and ethereal body to the base chakra, re-balancing the meridians of the physical body and providing an optimal balance in the ethereal body. [Raphaell, 128, 132][Melody, 654][Hall, 297]
Tourmalines are well-known in metaphysical circles as wonderful crystals for healing and protection. Tourmalines are excellent for balancing the hemispheres of the brain, clearing away blockages, and transmuting negative energies. They promote compassion, empathy, and sympathy, and are excellent meditation aids.
In general, Tourmaline can become electrically charged as a result of heat or pressure, which is a testament to the ability of these crystals to impact one’s energy field. Tourmaline is very grounding and helpful in releasing stress and tension. They can bring inspiration from higher realms into the chakras for processing within the body. All Tourmaline is thought to balance yin and yang energies, as well as the left and right hemispheres of the brain
