Healing Properties of Red Tourmaline Quartz
Spiritual: Red Tourmaline is an incredible stone for anyone who wants to deepen their ability to love. Red Tourmaline connects the root chakra to the heart, creating a direct pathway for devotional practices that require one to be both grounded and firmly heart-centered. It invites us to understand the true nature of Love, it all its complexity and glory. It reminds us that we must love other people as well as ourselves, it cannot be just the one or the other. For love is a flowing energy that must travel back and forth between hearts, it can’t simply go one direction or stay in one place. Red Tourmaline sings of courage without aggression, for doing what is right, while still being tactful and flexible. It helps us to achieve our goals, without creating new problems along the way. Red Tourmaline is attuned to the Root and Heart Chakras and linked to the astrological signs of Libra, Sagittarius and Scorpio. It is connected to the elements Water and Earth and vibrates to the numbers 1, 2, 4, and 5.
Emotional: Red Tourmaline has a dynamic and loving vibrational field which is very pleasant to be around. It encourages us to follow it’s lead and to showcase our own friendly and charming nature. Red Tourmaline inspires feelings of comfort and safety between people, putting everyone at ease and allowing for more emotional intimacy. It can be used to deepen friendships as well as to inspire passionate and satisfying romances. Red Tourmaline gives us courage to love for the first time and to love again after heartbreak. It reminds us that sometimes a relationship is only meant to last for a little while, but that doesn’t mean it failed or that the love wasn’t real or important. When we are in-love with someone, Red Tourmaline adds a rich delight to every encounter. It motivates to keep our relationship fresh and exciting, while simultaneously prioritizing comfort and stability. It challenges us to celebrate every day and to seize every opportunity for love. Anyone who feels emotionally numb, isolated or traumatized by the past will benefit from the dynamic energy of Red Tourmaline which shines like a beacon, drawing us back into Love, Light and Life.
Mental: Red Tourmaline encourages us to see the world with more compassion and pragmaticism. If we have a tendency to jump to conclusions and believe that other people are conspiring against us, Red Tourmaline helps us to calm down. It reminds us that most people are just trying to get through the day and they might not even notice their impact on others. Red Tourmaline inspires us to be magnanimous and to assume good or neutral intent until proven otherwise. If someone harms us, Red Tourmaline helps us to forgive so that our own heart doesn’t harden and to give absolution if the situation warrants it. This kind of merciful response is not a sign of weakness, but rather of power. To be merciful, means we are in control of the situation and in control of ourselves as well.
Physical: Red Tourmaline is a strong advocate for preventative self-care and for taking immediate action whenever a physical problem develops. Red Tourmaline reminds us that we are responsible for our body and health, and no one can help us if we don’t first help ourselves. Red Tourmaline asks us to act sensibly in regards to food, exercise, stress levels, and anything else that has a daily impact on our health. It also encourages us to get regular physical checkups, so that any problem is discovered early and can be treated immediately. If we suffer from mental issues, Red Tourmaline reminds us that the mind is part of our brain, and the brain is part of the body. Just like any body part, our mind can get injured or sick and may need expert help in order to heal. Red Tourmaline helps us to not take mental health issues so personally, but rather to treat them pragmatically the same way we might deal with a broken leg or a tooth cavity. Red Tourmaline is an especially good talisman for anything to do with the physical heart, circulatory systems and reproductive system.
Always use wisdom when considering crystal therapies for healing.
