Black Tourmaline is an excellent stone for grounding and stabilizing, connecting the practitioner to the earth plane while still allowing for mental acuity and spiritual expansion. It can be used to protect against or repel negative energy, making it an indispensable stone in the gridder's toolkit. In fact, when mapped with the reflective powers of Mica, a 'return to sender' grid can be created, which will return negativity to its source and allows the practitioner to descry the sender.
This lovely stone has been used in the treatment of many diseases associated with a disconnect between the body and the earth plane, including disorientation, vertigo, dyslexia, anxiety and depression. It has also been successfully utilized as an energy deflector for those who may be exposed to excessive radiation.
The potency of Black Tourmaline's grounding capabilities makes it an obvious choice for activating and opening the root chakra on the body, providing a direct link between the root chakra and the physical plane when worn or placed on the body. In cooperation with the root chakra's location at the base of the spine, this stone acts to stimulate the reflex points associated with the lower back. With gentle, yet sturdy support, Black Tourmaline provides the foundation needed for enhanced physical vitality in beautiful partnership with a balanced mind and spirit.
