Sunflowers & Selenite: Pink Tourmaline

Welcome back to the second installment of Sunflowers & Selenite! Today I’m going to share about the second crystal I added to my collection. After talking to the owner of Vibrate Higher, she recommended this one to me.

What’s it for: Pink tourmaline brings joy and self love to its user. It also helps with releasing guilt, stress, and tension. Pink tourmaline is associated with the heart and root chakras. If your heart chakra is blocked this will help open it and allow energy to free through the body. While energy flows more freely when any chakra is unblocked, I think the heart is the most important as it is the middle chakra, connecting the upper and lower body.

Some common uses for pink tourmaline:

  • reducing fear
  • bringing love
  • creating a sense of relaxation or peace
  • as part of a self care routine
  • to increase self confidence

Due to these properties pink tourmaline is often recommended for people who have anxiety, depression, insomnia, or are grieving. While I do think it is beneficial to have a physical reminder to meditate I wanted to share a friendly reminder: if you can benefit from seeing a doctor, reach out to a physician/psychologist. While I do believe that your mind is incredibly powerful, we all need a little help sometimes. There is no shame in reaching out to someone.

Another purpose that I stumbled across in my research is that pink tourmaline is for serving humanity. Coming from a school with a focus on “being leaders in service to humanity”, pink tourmaline definitely resonates with me. It seems like the wand really does chose the wizard.

How I use it: Up until very recently this was one of the crystals I meditated with every day. Now that I have a wider variety of crystals to meditate with I am trying to mix it up based on whatever I’m feeling that day. However pink tourmaline is still in frequent rotation.

The light in me honors the light in you.

xox,

Marissa
