Tourmaline: The ultimate grounding and protection stone for me. It is ideal for those who deal with panic and anxiety attacks and for those who don't do well with large crowds or simply feel awkward during social settings. It's a stone for protection & dispelling low, negative and evil energy that people often release intentionally or subconsciously and when unprotected, we absorb these toxic vibrations as our own. It protects and repels against energy vampires, you know, the one's who are the daily "diary" of your life, but have not done anything to help you change??? Those type of people actually feed off of your problems and contribute to your inability to move forward. Careful who you vent to. On the same token, it is a stone for transformation to not attract those types of people/situations. Tourmaline also assists with confidence, not the outward confidence you put out to the world, but personal power and inner strength, self esteem and integrity.
Tiger's Eye: Protection from self sabotage and opens your mind to self acceptance. I use tiger eye for creativity when writing or creating new ideas, especially when trying to block the self doubt talk and criticism we often entertain in our own minds during the creative process. It's a stone of fire energy and balances the masculine aspect of ourselves. In combination with tourmaline these two pack a punch when charged for protective intentions, especially if you work or live in a fast paced environment where you're exposed to all types of energies that more often than not attach themselves to you. Carry with you to attract money and maintain your money by repeating positive abundance affirmations. My favorite is " Money comes to me effortlessly". "My dedication always pays off".
