As you may have experienced during your Excavation — rocks have amazing energy with the ability to open pathways for deeper healing. There are so many to choose from! Most people really enjoy using black tourmaline in their day-to-day life. Black tourmaline can be kept in a pocket or worn as a wristband to repel negativity. It’s great for busy and stressful workplaces, traveling, or anywhere else that you might be confronted by other people’s energy (family visits?!). You can keep a chunk of black tourmaline next to your computer to help clear the EMFs from the atmosphere as well. Black tourmaline is very grounding.
Wearing tourmaline on the left side of your body stops negativity from entering your energy field. Wearing it on your right side helps control your own negativity from spilling out into the atmosphere. I wear it on both sides just to be safe!
Before use: you must clean and clear your tourmaline (or any crystal). This can be done by holding it under running water, keeping it in a bowl of sea salt* for 24 hours, smudging it with sage or palo santo stick, or placing it with a piece of selenite crystal (there are other methods too, but they tend to be a bit more esoteric). Once the tourmaline has been cleared, you may charge it by placing it in moonlight or sunlight for a period of hours. Then it’s ready to stop negativity in its tracks! I clean my tourmalines at least once a week.
*dispose of sea salt after use (don’t eat).
