Healing the Body with Black Tourmaline
In Healing the Mind
For those suffering from chronic anxiety or depression, black tourmaline's grounding properties can be targeted towards enabling healing in that area. Its grounding effects act to clear away negative emotions and thoughts, and will be of particular value to those experiencing feelings of unworthiness. Black tourmaline is said to have at times been used to assist in preventing self-harm and suicide, and to treat patients suffering from addiction.
For Meditation and Divination
Black tourmaline is also useful as a divination stone. It was one of the first pendulum stones used in ancient times, and will come in handy if you are attempting to divine the location of a lost object or find the solution to a particularly confusing issue.
