This means she can be called upon for protection as she controls destiny. Manat holds black tourmaline sacred for its colour along with other black crystals such as onyx.
Black Tourmaline is one of the few crystals that everyday scientists can work with to prove that such stones hold and emit energy. When heated, it provides an electric current which is believed to have been used in experiments carried out by some of our well-known inventors, e.g. Benjamin Franklin. For this reason, it can be also known as the electric stone.
Energies: Protection / Balancing of energies / Grounding / Objectivity
Daily Use: Handy to carry on you all the time, if you are needing grounding after a confronting day at work – Black Tourmaline will energetically balance you. If you are needing psychic shielding when visiting a haunted location or spiritually busy event – Black Tourmaline will energetically protect you. If you are needing to collect hard to reach magnetic items, heat your stone and use it as a rod to attract particles – I told you, it is handy.
Magical Use: One example I would like to share with you is when feeling psychically attacked. Use the crystal either in the situation or when visualising the situation, calm yourself and request assistance as required by holding it in your hand and completing your chant.
Anyone that practices spell work knows the best chants are ones that come from your own being, however if you need some assistance, here is an example you could use and manipulate depending on your cause.
“I call upon the Goddess Manat,
And ask your protection be stored within this stone.
Psychically shield me, for I feel trapped,
Reach all heights of my life at work and home.
As I carry this Black Tourmaline
I know you will deflect negativity directed at me.
Non-Magical Use: If you feel Black Tourmaline does not work for you in this way and you would prefer it stay just a pretty stone, you can get a cheap necklace from stores such as Collette at any Westfield for less than $20. – Although please do not think you are cursed if the stone falls out. The glue was probably just not very good. Re-glue and continue to be your beautiful self!
