Obsidian is a stone formed by lava that didn’t have enough time to cool into glass. This volcanic glass aids in protection, grounding, and spiritual communication. Known as a “psychic vacuum cleaner”, Black Obsidian gets rid of all the junk and cleanses all negativity out of your auric field and environment. This stone has powerful grounding frequencies and will heavily assist in psychic protection when needed. Obsidian also brings out all of our creative energies so that they may be intertwined and influence our every action. As humans, it’s important to constinalty be using our creative energies to keep them free-flowing at ease. When we reduce our output of creativity, these energies begin to go dormant as if they will never be needed again. It’s very hard to re-ignite certain creative energies so it is best to constantly be using them.
Obsidian was first mentioned in the Latin scripted book “Natural History” by Pliny the Elder in 77 AD. Traces of obsidian being used as weapon/tools date as far back as 7,000 years ago. Obsidian was highly valued in the ancient world for arrowheads and blades as they were easily able to be worked with, yet very durable. Obsidian’s most interesting fact about its past usage is that it was polished for the sole purpose of being used as early mirrors before glass was established.
Obsidian works well with a number of other stones, assisting and enhancing each other’s energy. It works specifically well with Jet and Smokey Quartz when aiding in grounding. Jet and Obsidian are both very powerful and stay on high vibrational frequencies resulting in the highest protection while diving you deep into the Earth. Smokey Quartz, being a stone aiding in the transmutation of negative energies, will work extremely well with the powerful cleansing effects of Obsidian. While the Obsidian cleanses the auric field of the user, the Smokey Quartz transmutes that energy into positivity the user can then use to better themselves. Obsidian also works will with Moldavite in clearing all energies, allowing the highest level of self-transformation to take place
