The Power of Obsidian
Did you know that there are some surgical blades which are not made from metal but from Obsidian rocks?
Obsidian is a natural volcanic glass that is created when volcanic lava mixes with water, is cooled rapidly and solidifies. This process produces a glassy texture which results in rock, while the iron and magnesium give the obsidian a dark green to black color.
Although Obsidian was used by ancient people as weapons like axes and arrowheads, due to the thinness of its blades, today it is used as a powerful healing stone.
Here are some of its healing benefits.
- Psychic vacuum cleaner. Obsidian protects you as it clears up the psychic smog surrounding you. It absorbs negative emotions, patterns, attachments, and thoughts and transforms them. It cleanses your aura and draws out mental stress and tension.
- Know thyself. This stone works as a mirror and helps you discover your true self. It helps you see your own flaws and makes changes to eliminate them. It dispels everything that stands in the way of your personal and spiritual growth.
- Physically healthy. Obsidian warms the extremities and has to power to reduce some ailments like arthritis pain, joint problems, and cramps. It aids in digestion and the circulatory system. It also gets rid of bacterial or viral infections and detoxifies the body.
- Think clearly. If you want to bring clarity to the mind then choose an Obsidian stone. It helps clear confusion and helps you become more focused and grounded. It also develops razor-like mental abilities and gives you the power of discernment.
- Feng Shui Power. Obsidian’s potent energy comes from the interaction of 3 of the 5 elements that are important to feng shui - earth, fire, and water. And it is an excellent cure for the north bagua ( a feng shui energy map of an area) - which is related to the energy of career and path in life. Obsidian provides the water-energy which clears the obstacles in one’s life.
What started off as a stone used mostly as a weapon, Obsidian continues to protect the wearer and fights off anything and everything that produces negativity in his life. Wearing this stone as a piece of jewelry is the best way to acquire all its benefits.
