Another way to benefit from the healing properties of black tourmalinated quartz is with walking meditation, which is especially beneficial in a tranquil and serene environment, such as the forest or an outdoor healing sanctuary. With your stone in hand and a clear, focused intention, let the stone ground you to the Earth and get ready to enjoy the amazing feelings of gratitude and serenity as you let go of negative thought patterns with the help of this beautiful and unusual stone.
Practicing daily meditation with your healing crystals helps condition your mind to access its healing benefits every time you come in contact with it. Not only does meditation with healing gemstones help balance the chakras, but it also has powerful grounding effects because it instantly reconnects us to the Earth and its live-giving elements that created gemstones over the millennia.
Borrowing from the Zen tradition, enhance inner peace and harmony by gazing at the stone, a simple practice that helps still the mind. Set the mood for peaceful contemplation laying the stone on a plain cloth and placing a lit candle next to it. Position yourself in the meditation pose and take relaxing, rhythmic breaths. Stare at the stone and notice any thoughts that may arise. Black tourmalinated quartz boosts clarity of the mind, which makes it an essential addition to your mediation practice. During this therapeutic session, have a pen and paper handy for taking any notes that you want to remember. Then, let all your thoughts and feelings gently melt away and notice the powerful, healing vibes of this beautiful gemstone.
Because this gemstone is absorbing negative energy, it’s important to cleanse the stone on a daily basis. Using a sage stick, smudge the crystal until it is immersed in smoke or leave it in the soil of a healthy plant for a few hours. Alternatively, you can also leave your crystals in the moonlight overnight.
When it comes to clarity of the mind and inner peace, black tourmalinated quartz is truly a gem and another must-have for your crystal healing collection.
