Rose Quartz & Black Tourmaline: A Rockstar Pair
This post is a bit of a specialized one. Today we are conquering negativity, self doubt, worry, and many other mental chatters that causes us heartaches. This is my super simple, super easy crystal and Reiki “trick” to get the good stuff flowing and the bad stuff out. I’ll tell you how to do it, then why it works.
If you don’t know which hand is your receiving hand and which one is your sending hand, it’s pretty important to figure that out first. The most common ways of discovering are:
- Right hand sending, left hand receiving…that simple
- Dominate hand sending, non-dominate hand receiving
If neither of them are conclusive then clear your mind and just send Reiki with one hand then the other to decide which one is the better sender.
Now that that’s out of the way…put a rose quartz in the receiving hand, black tourmaline in sending hand, run Reiki. If doing on yourself it is way easier to wear bracelets than to hold stones, but having clients hold the stones is perfect because it gives them something to concentrate on.
Rose quartz is a lovey dovey crystal. It supports you in a soft and heartfelt manner. When you need to boost the heart chakra energies, find love in yourself (and others), and surround yourself in good vibes, rose quartz will help.
It works in this set up because placing a piece in the receiving hand while running Reiki, you’re open to more of those wonderful loving caring energies. The rose quartz will help calm you down, slow and/or stop worry, and help foster confidence in yourself.
Rose quartz is a harder crystal so it’s easier to take care of than our friend Selenite. When rose quartz gets to feeling icky, and you’ll really be able to tell, you can run it under cool water or stick it in salt to clean it right up. Alternately you could bury it in the earth for a couple of days or a week, just be sure to mark the spot so you don’t lose the crystal. You’ll want to clean rose quartz after every session you use it in, just like any quartz.
Black tourmaline is a crystal like selenite where you never need to clean it. It is a powerhouse negativity sucker upper as well. It will clean a room pretty quickly, especially when paired with selenite and/or rose quartz. I’ve never had to energetically clean my black tourmaline pieces and they’ve gone through a lot.
Putting a piece of black tourmaline in your sending hand while running Reiki causes negative bits to be sucked up and dealt with quickly and easily. A client holding a black tourmaline will more easily release negative energies, and this will protect you because those energies will go to the tourmaline rather than chill out in the room during the session.
The Two Together
I highly suggest using rose quartz and black tourmaline together. I use it a lot when doing Reiki on others. I’ve experimented with other pairings, but these two have personally given the best results.
The rose quartz swoops in with love, who couldn’t use more love energies? And black tourmaline works as the attitude checker, sweeps up the negative Nellys and shoves them out the door…ever so gently.
When using black tourmaline on it’s own I felt the person seemed rather empty afterwards and that is why the rose quartz was added. It gave a boost of calming energy and love.
