In todays society we are constantly out and about, or online, socially or at work, always interacting with people, exchanging energy and sometimes having our boundaries and energy fields a little worn down. In order to maintain a steady and balanced energy field we think it's essential to protect yourself however best you can.
When it comes to crystals for energy protection we often turn to Black Tourmaline, one of natures guardians, a forced to be reckoned with and your crystal bodyguard.
Black Tourmaline is a powerful and versatile crystal. It is renowned for its ability to absorb and transmute negative energies, making it an excellent choice for protection and grounding. It acts as a a shield to deflect and absorb negative energies, emotional vampires, and destructive forces. Black Tourmaline can guard against radiation and EMF frequencies and is highly useful in dissolving your negative thoughts and patterns.
Use Black Tourmaline to:
- As a protective shield. Set your intentions for it to be your protector, to create a force-field around you, blocking out negativity and keeping you in a cocoon of safety. To do this simply hold a cleansed piece of Black Tourmaline and visualise a shield being placed around you, allowing negativity to leave but not to enter. You can carry a piece with you throughout the day, wear it as jewellery or if you are not able to take it with you, hold the intention for the boundary to be active for 24 hours, you don't always need to keep the crystal with out when working with it like this.
- As a grounding tool. If you've had a big day and need to return to earth, hold Black Tourmaline and breathe into its energy, feel yourself being rooted back down to the earth and re-connected. Restoring your sense of peace and stability.
- To make grounded decisions. Keep a piece of Black Tourmaline with you at work or grab it out when you need to make a decision with a steady mind, allow it to settle your energy field before making rushed and hurried decisions.
- To protect your home. Place Black Tourmaline above your doorways to absorb unwanted energies of those entering, be sure to keep these energetically cleansed often if people are coming and going.
- To protect you at work. Keep a piece of black tourmaline on your desk or workstation to shield yourself from electromagnetic pollution and maintain a clear and focused mind.
So if you are looking for crystals for energy protection, or crystals for grounding your energy we recommend you start with Black Tourmaline.
Black Tourmaline Meditation
Find a quiet and comfortable space where you can sit or lie down where you won't be disturbed for a little while. Have your chosen piece of Black Tourmaline with you.
Close your eyes and take a few deep, cleansing breaths. Inhale deeply through your nose, and exhale slowly through your mouth.
Hold your piece of Black Tourmaline. Tune into it, feel its weight, it's texture, and its energy. Know that it is here to protect and ground you.
In your mind's eye, visualise a glowing light beaming out of the Black Tourmaline and surrounding your body. Imagine this light as a powerful shield that repels negative energies and keeps you safe and secure. Feel into its strength and how secure it makes you feel. If you have or have seen a raw piece of Black Tourmaline you can visualise this making up a wall around you, creating a layer of protection around the light.
Know that negativity cannot enter this shield, but if you are holding any it will not be stuck with you it will be able to leave
Say this intention silently or out loud as many times as you need to.
"I am protected, grounded, and at peace."
Take a few deep breaths, exhaling any tension or negativity. As you exhale, imagine releasing any stress, worries, or doubts into the Earth.
Take a moment to express a sense gratitude for the protection and grounding you've received from the Black Tourmaline and the surrounding light. You can ask that she shield stays active for 24 hours. Or for however long you are going out for.
Return to your surroundings when you are ready. Your Black Tourmaline shield of protection is now active.
