Often when you are working with natural crystals, to develop your psychic faculties, such as psychic clairvoyant abilities or clairaudient gifts, you may become very ungrounded.
This need to bring yourself back to a grounded state is very important, and it is easy to be unaware of your state of ungroundedness.
Did you know that being ungrounded has the potential to cause health problems?
Meditation with Blue Tourmaline is a quite beautiful experience, and it has the added advantage that this stone is also very grounding, especially so if you use the darker stones.
I usually use and recommend Black Tourmaline for grounding you spiritually, as it is readily available, but the blue variety of Tourmaline will also aid in that process.
This is not surprising, as many of my 'Black' Tourmaline's are actually a very, very dark blue.
Sometimes you are not aware of which color they are, but looking at them under bright light you can see the deep beautiful blue color within the stone.
