Healing Properties of Black Tourmaline
Technically there is no such thing as “negative energy”, but that term is still used as a shorthand for negative patterns, intention, and emotions that can build up in your auric field. Black tourmaline can transmute this negativity, freeing up the energy involve to be used for positive ends.
Black tourmaline can also help purify our mind and aura of negative thoughts and anxiety, making it useful for people with over-active minds. It is a powerful grounding stone, helping you get out of your head and into your body. It helps people feel connected to the Earth and have a sense of being at home in your body and on the planet.
It can be placed near entryways for protection, and is recommended for empaths to wear daily.
