Obsidian is a natural glass that forms when molten lava is cooled very quickly, often by flowing into lakes or oceans. Obsidian can come in a number of varieties with various attributes, both physically and metaphysically. Each variation is caused by slight differences caused by impurities within the lava, as well as how quickly the lava had been cooled. The most common varieties include Mahogany, Snowflake, and Flow Obsidian, but there is also rarities like Rainbow, and Fire Obsidian. Be aware, there is vast differences between Obsidian and common glass, with a lot of the powers found within Obsidian coming from the inclusions and how it was formed. Obsidian has been used throughout history, with pieces of Obsidian being used for scrying throughout the middle ages.
Obsidian is known as ‘The Stone of Protection’ creating a shield that will protect you against all negativity. Obsidian will work up through the chakras, starting at the root, cleansing and dispelling any negative energy, toxins, or stagnant energy. This natural glass will then work to repair, and heal, any tears within your auric field. Obsidian will then provide its own shield outwith your aura, allowing you to work with the various energies around you without any becoming attached to your own energy. Obsidian is a powerful grounding tool, tying your energy to that of Mother Earth. This action will allow you to work with the energy reaching down from the higher dimensions while keeping a firm foundation here on earth.
Obsidian can help you to identify the points of chaos and disharmony that are surrounding you and allow you to cut any attachments to them areas. Obsidian will help you to let go of any fear and anger that you are directing towards certain people, allowing you to cut the cord and experience life with nothing holding you down.
