Black Tourmaline and Reiki


Article by Rinku Patel

Black Tourmaline is one of my very favorite crystal. I have black tourmaline stones, a bracelet, a pocket stone and 3 pendants☺. It definitely shows my craze towards this stone. I have placed stones in each room, one under my wish and pendants for family. Kids are actually addicted to black tourmaline; they miss their pendant when I put the pendants out during full moon.

Every crystal lover knows that black tourmaline is the MUST HAVE stone for its powerful healing properties. Reiki and Crystals both have their own amazing healing energies and when both powerful healing energies combine, the outcome becomes double beneficial. The first and foremost thing to do is cleanse the crystal and infuse it with Reiki energy. We all know that crystals works with or without Reiki but crystals infused with Reiki makes the healing quicker, stronger and more powerful.

Black tourmaline is a stone of protection. It is also called as Guarding Stone. Infusing Reiki to black tourmaline increases its vibrations to release negativity and blockages and gives powerful shielding and grounding.

Black Tourmaline as Protecting Stone: (Do not forget to infuse with Reiki to double the benefits of the stone)

• Wearing or carrying this stone shields you from psychic attacks and psychic vampires.
• Shields you from negative vibes.
• When Black Tourmaline is placed in home or work area, it provides protective shield around you and your home space or workspace.
• Transmutes all negative energy to positive.
• Shields you from your own negative thoughts and fear.
• Stops these psychic vampires to suck off your energy; they won’t be able to get a drop of your energy if Black Tourmaline is around your auric field.
• Wear a Black Tourmaline or place it in your wallet, purse, bag, and pocket, under your pillow, add in your bath or anywhere in your room. Place it beside electronic equipment. Make an elixir of this stone and spray on self or space. Just keep this stone close to your auric field.
• Rubbing Black Tourmaline also brings good luck and happiness.

Black Tourmaline as Healing and Grounding Stone:

• We all know how important grounding is for Reiki practitioners. Wearing or carrying Black Tourmaline makes you feel grounded and safe.
• Many times practitioners forget to ground themselves before healing a client. Always make a habit to wear or put Black Tourmaline near the healing space to protect you and ground you.
• Black Tourmaline is directly connected to root chakra hence it helps balancing root chakra. It also connects us to Mother Earth.
• Helps reducing stress and addiction.
• Place a Black Tourmaline on your Solar-Plexus and give Reiki to bring clarity and power.
• Meditating with Black Tourmaline brings more light to cells.
• Stimulates balance between left and right side of the brain.
• Also helps balancing work-and-play, pain-and-ease and high-and-low vibrations.
• Many times after giving healing, practitioners feel drain-out as they have absorbed client’s energy. In that case, just hold Black Tourmaline in your palm and relax for a while. It deflects all unwanted energies absorbed from the client.

Black Tourmaline to absorb Electromagnetic Energy:

• We are all around electronic equipment and devices and accumulating electromagnetic energy. Black Tourmaline helps absorb electromagnetic energy.
• Give Reiki to the stone with the intention that it absorbs all electromagnetic energy. Place the stone near equipments and devices that emits electromagnetic energy.

Black Tourmaline as Manifesting Stone:

• Write your wish on a paper. Draw symbols and chant its names.
• Fold the paper and put it under Black Tourmaline.

That’s it. As simple as that. Black tourmaline removes negativity attached to your wish and further shields it, hence quicker manifestation.

Black Tourmaline Grid:

Setting a grid with Black Tourmaline removes negativity off your wishes and hence makes healing and manifestation faster.

Alternatively you can place Reiki charged Black Tourmaline stones in all corners of the room if you feel people with negative energy keeps entering your room. This is best done at work place or office where many known or unknown people tend to enter. Black Tourmaline absorbs all the toxic and negative energies and provides a shield to your room.

So, if you don’t have Black Tourmaline stone, go and order one NOW☺

  1. Great article! I am going to share it! I am an RN and also a healer. I started using black tourmaline years ago when I worked in the hospital and I have no doubts about it’s incredible power. I started making black tourmaline jewelry because I was sick of losing the pieces I would carry in my pockets.

    My designs are on my website:

    Thanks again for the article! Blessings!

  2. Thanks rinku for sharing the information. But I have a doubt. Can you please clarify. Whenever i use black cloths i get terribly bad experience. I don’t know whether astrologcally it doesn’t suits me or not. Also iron ring doesn’t suits me. If black tourmaline is related to Saturn then it might not be suitable for me . Please guide.

    • Nobody can truly tell you if it is going to be suitable for you or not except YOURSELF. We tend to trust external information as gospel, and forget about our own infinite source of knowledge. Trust in yourself, commune with your own higher self. It’s easy to do, just by being still and aware of yourself, you can tap into your higher self. Then ask any question you’d like an answer to and notice any changes in your body, feelings, sensations. Answers may be subtle changes in the way you feel, or may be more explicit – just trust yourself and your higher self. I hope this is of help to you. Best wishes!

  3. I just recently started using crystals in my life. And I took Reiki 1 & 2 about a year ago. I took the Reiki classes at the animal shelter where I volunteer, it was very fast and there was not a lot of time for good information. The class was from 10:00 to 4:00, only 6 hours. So my question is how do I infuse a stone with Reiki? How do I use this stone when I use Reiki? Thank you, very good information here.

    • What i do is hold my stones in one hand while invoking the symbols and hold my other hand over them while sending the intention of the reiki going into the stone. I usually do this until I feel I am done.

  4. When you mentioned using tourmaline with a Reiki grid, what did you mean? Please clarify. I think I know what you mean but I would like to make sure I am on the same page.
