“A Stone of Protection”
Black Tourmaline can be used to both repel and to protect against negativity. It acts to protect one from being victimized by the negative energy of another. It has also been used as an energy deflector, being an excellent stone for those with potential for exposure to excessive amounts of radiation. It provides for an increase in ones physical vitality, emotional stability, and intellectual acuity, and can maintain one’s “spirits” even in conditions which appear to emit the messages of “gloom and doom”. It furthers the awakening of altruism and enhances practicality in creativity. As
A protective stone against “spells” which are cast by the negative side of another, it is a special stone to American Indians; Black Tourmaline in quartz not only dispels the “spell”, but energizes the “victim” and actually increases well- being; Black Tourmaline, used with mica, returns the “spell” to the originating source and allows one to view the sender of the negative energies.
It is also used to activate grounding between the base chakra and the centre of the earth, providing for further enhancement of one’s well-being on the physical plane.
