Ancient magicians were intelligent enough to not
partake in any ritual without black tourmaline in proximity. While connecting
with the spiritual realms, there is always the possibility of contact and
opening your energy field to anyone or anything whether positive or negative.
Therefore, black tourmaline was used by the ancients as psychic shields and for
protection from all adverse entities. These are stones that people
carried when facing imminent danger, stress, travelling or hostile unknown
environments. Black tourmaline essentially consumes
and absorbs all negative energy, so it is the best form of protection
against electronic radiation and negative spells. It guards the auric energy fields
against any low vibration by creating a strong positive force field around
energy bodies. It is an excellent stone to meditate with, as it clears them
against its own negative though patterns, thereby allow the mind develop clear,
focused and objective approach to thinking. Black tourmaline is great for
students, musicians, actors, artists, athletes, writes, programmers, or
any profession that involves focus and willpower.
