Removal of unhealthy stale energy

Black tourmaline can shake up stale energy in a room, or even in your energy body and auric field. Its not so much that it makes things chaotic, but it cleanses by getting rid of old energy. Sometimes you may feel that there is a negative being or influence in your house, but you may just need a cleansing. And so black tourmaline helps by keeping stale energy in check and dispelling that negativity.


This energy is not the kind that will cause you to withdraw your focus from the third dimension like some crystals, but it actually helps you to face physical reality. This would be a very good crystal to work with if you feel you have trouble staying connected to what is going on in your life. This would be a good crystal for people so frequently dissociate and leak out of their auras. It is like black tourmaline helps you to fit securely into your physical body. It helps you to become stable and learn more about what your needs are in life so that you can survive and take care of yourself. It also helps you to organize your life and put people, things, and priorities in their right places. It helps you get back to the basics and focus on how to take care of yourself at the most basic level and then work your way up. It can teach you to not have negative reactions so quickly because you are centered in yourself and more emotionally stable.
