Obsidian is molten lava that cooled incredibly quickly forming a volcanic glass. Black Obsidian is an incredibly powerful truth stone that pulls the things we’ve pushed deep down out and helps us to process and heal. It is not a stone to be used lightly as sometimes we have hidden these things for a reason and it can be difficult to face them so should be used carefully and when we are at a place where we have a solid support system. Because it brings difficult emotions to the surface please pass it along if you aren’t ready to work with it or bury it in the earth at your entry as it is also an enormously powerful protection stone. Due to its strong protective energy and its incredible ability to weed out the truth it is the perfect stone to be outside the entrance to your home to ensure that everyone entering is being truthful and not bringing in negative energy.
Like all Obsidians, Mahogany Obsidian helps us remove blockages that stand between us and the best version of ourselves. Aiding us, in an occasionally harsh way, with removing old traumas and ties that no longer serve us. If you aren’t ready for your world to be shaken up, be cautious working with any Obsidian but especially Mahogany Obsidian. This strong and protective stone lends us energy when it is needed and helps us to continue when we feel overwhelmed, particularly when doing shadow work and breaking ancestral patterns. A grounding stone, it helps with growth in every way. It also uses its intense fire energy to surge through your body, unblocking the solar plexus, sacral and root chakra; revitalizing you on every level.
All obsidians are violently protective and are often the first-place people go for protection. When placed near the entrance to a home it helps to deter unwanted visitors (or visitors that shouldn’t be wanted). Obsidian is a truth stone that helps to make the truth clearer to you when you are around people who tend to manipulate or lie to you, but it is one of the softer obsidians making it less harsh in the way it does so. Rainbow obsidian also works hard to fend off negative energy and helps rid the heart of leftover pain from previous lovers or friends. It is a wonderful aid to use while combating excessive stress.
Snowflake obsidian, like all obsidians, is a very protective stone focused on keeping you protected and safe even from yourself leading you away from harmful behaviours. It encourages being soft on yourself and appreciating that mistakes are a part of learning. It calms and sooths the mind helping to release ingrained patterns of thought that are stressful and lead to toxic ways of thinking of oneself. It helps to centre us in ourselves keeping us focused on what’s best for us and teaching us that being alone doesn’t have to be lonely but can instead be a place to recoup and build strength.
