Black Obsidian is a pure, glossy black colour, which can appear as very dark brown when strong light is shined on thin edges.
Black Obsidian powerfully eliminates negative energies in oneself and one's environment. It is like a 'psychic vacuum cleaner', cleansing the auric fiend of disharmony, negative attachments, astral plane 'junk', and one's own emanations of anger, greed, fear, resentment, etc. It is a strong grounding stone, stimulating the root chakra to make its connection with the Earthstar chakra below the feet, and deep into the core of the Earth.
Black Obsidian is useful for all types of scrying, including spirit communication. If one sets up a low-light environment and sits gazing into a polished Black Obsidian slab or sphere, ti is quite possible that the images of loved ones who have passed over will appear in the reflected surface. At the same time, one may feel their messages as thoughts appearing in one's own mind. Black Obsidian's affinity for the world of souls, plus its protective qualities, make it ideal for such activities.
Black Obsidian's energy is that of protection. Its frequency seals the aura and removes energetic attachments, hooks and cords. Black Obsidian's energy creates a protective shield that helps one remain centred when faced with negativity.
Black Obsidian's protective energy also extends to the level of the mind, illuminating negative thoughts and mental habits so action can be taken to clear their root causes. It allows one to perceive where one is creating negativity in one's own life and guides one to change the underlying patterns that create a negative reality.
Black Obsidian helps uncover unconscious thoughts and patterns that inhibit one's spiritual and personal growth. These patterns can contribute to addiction, abusive behaviour (toward oneself or others), negativity, scarcity and other undesirable traits. Black Obsidian gently yet firmly points out where one holds these patterns and assists in clearing them from the auric field and cellular memory.
Black Obsidian assists in recognising where one is holding negativity and helps to illuminate and cleanse negative emotional patterns from the aura. It can assist those who are very psychically or emotionally sensitive to maintain the integrity of their energy fields.
Black Obsidian is a powerful emotional teacher, It leads one to an understanding and acceptance of the darker side of one's nature, so that aspect can be evolved and illuminated. It assists in breaking negative emotionally based patterns such as self-abuse, eating disorders, and addictions, when one is willing to take responsibility for one's own healing.
Black Obsidian assists with removing blockages in the meridian system. Its energy is useful in clearing reproductive problems based in past abuse or current self-abuse issues. Black Obsidian opens and clears the base and second chakras.
Affirmation: I cleanse my energy field of negativity and ground myself to the Earth's Heart.
