I just purchased a Black Tourmaline, but do not know how to use it effectively. Could you please assist me?
Thank you for your question.
Black Tourmaline can ground and strengthen your aura and you can wear it or carry it in your pocket daily, to minimize the outside influences -- such as negativity of others or artificial electro-magnetic fields (emitted from computers, cell phones, etc) to your personal energy field.
When you are at home, you can place it on the floor and put your bare feet on top of your pieces of Black Tourmaline for 20 minutes or so to discharge any extraneous energy influences that you may be carrying that is not beneficial to you.
Black Tourmaline is also excellent to use in combination with other crystals if you have a block that you would like to clear. For instance, some people find it hard to express their emotions and that may create blockages in any of the chakras, depending on the type of emotion. This type of work, however, is best done with a qualified crystal healer or other energy therapist.
Many use Black Tourmalne to grid their house (on the outside or inside) or protect their living space. You can learn more about gridding here. Some find that they sleep better with a grid made of Black Tourmaline around their bed.
Please make sure to cleanse your crystals regularly, every day if you wear them daily, using one of the methods outlined here
I hope that these recommendations can be of assistance and that crystals grace your journey with love and light.
