Black Tourmaline, The Birthstone of October

OCTOBER: BLACK TOURMALINE

Black Tourmaline is a protective stone which repels and blocks negative energies and psychic attack. They can be used as an aid to remove fear and boost self-confidence. A popular metaphysical stone, Black Tourmaline is also great for grounding.

It helps with calming the mind when too much negativity is in the air. An excellent stone to use when you feel out of sorts or anxiety. Simply held the stone on your palm, sit or lie in a comfortable manner. Focus on stabilizing your thoughts till you calm your mind.

Tourmaline is often use for mediation due to these powerful properties.

This stone is still revered as a premier talisman of protection. It is highly useful in purifying and neutralizing one’s own negative thoughts and internal conflicts, and turning them into positive, usable energy.

It promotes a sense of power and self-confidence, allowing for a clearer, more objective view of the world. It is empowering to those who must live or work in challenging environments or when facing difficult circumstances.

Black Tourmaline works very well with Clear Quartz. The combination of clear white and radiant black is believed to create a perfect polarity of energies, a manifestation of light and dark forces united together for a common goal. Also known as Ying & Yang, bringing balance for an overall wellness.

As a strong believer of energy and choice, I self-read and study about horoscopes and crystals. That doesn’t mean I allow these to take control of my life. Remember to evaluate and make choices you feel best at the point of time.

How to Cleanse Your Crystals

  • Soak them in clean water. Make sure the gemstones submerge completely in the water. You may add salt but not a compulsory. Leave them for 10 to 15 mins.
  • Drained the crystals and spread and lay them out on something flat.
  • Sun them in morning preferably. Leave them for at least half an hour. The purpose of this is to “absorb” the energy from the sunlight. You may also choose to do so during night, when the full moon is up.
  • Sage it if you like but not necessary.

Cleaning your crystals is not about superstitious. Just like your home, your clothes. You wash and clean them to rid the dirt.

Energies is like wind. You can’t see it but you feel them. How you take care of your environment plays a key factor on your own vibration. There no point to put crystals, gemstones, figurines, status etc. if you don’t bother to maintain them properly.
