The first five words that come to mind when holding and feeling into the energy of Pink Tourmaline are: Heart Healing, Unconditional Love, Empathy, Feminine, and Love Connection.
Story: Ever since Joel and I found out we were having a baby, our hearts immediately began activating. We began to notice areas in our life where we could open our hearts up to love like never before, which allowed us to have a greater relationship with one another, loved ones, and even strangers. It's so beautiful to experience the maternal and paternal instincts that are activated when you begin the journey of finding out you're having a baby. After we found out that I was pregnant, we wanted to celebrate by taking a trip together to see fall foliage for the first time. We stopped at a crystal shop in Maine where we were both immediately drawn to this beautiful pink tourmaline heart. Out of all the crystals that Joel and I have seen, we have never seen a pink tourmaline bubbly heart like this one. We knew something about it was special and of course had to have it. The owner of the crystal shop was there and said that he loved that piece so much, he carved it to that beautiful bubbly heart shape himself. As we began back on the road, it dawned on both of us why we just had to have the pink tourmaline heart and it was the incredible energy pink tourmaline carries for activating a beautiful heart to heart bonding connection with you and your baby. Ever since, my husband carries it in his pocket every day. Even writing this makes me so emotional how incredibly connected we are with one another and the power of love. At night we place the heart where the baby is located and place both of our hands on top of the heart. We send it lots of love from our heart to the babies heart.
To Use: Pink Tourmaline can be used for any activation of healing of the heart. To do so, hold the pink tourmaline over your heart chakra and see a beautiful bright pink light radiating from your heart and into your entire body. Allow what feelings or even thoughts to come and go. Stay in the presence of pure love.
