OBSIDIAN - Often called The Stone Of Truth
Powerful is the Black Obsidian which is said to work like a psychic vacuum cleaner, cleaning the aura and energy field of negative energy and attachments. It will greatly benefit individuals sensitive to changes in their energy field and surroundings. Often called the stone of truth, the Black Obsidian can reveal boundless secrets and mysteries, both about the inner world of the person working with the obsidian, as well as about the inner workings of the cosmos at large.
Black Obsidian also assists in recognizing negative emotional patterns and cleansing oneself of them. Black Obsidian can remove blockages from the meridian system, the pathways of chi or universal energy and can aid spirit contact and gift of prophecy. The amount of information that Black Obsidian can reveal and the intensity of this truthful energy can be overwhelming. The perfection of its black color reveals the darkness that blocks the light in any situation and in any person. This is why the Black Obsidian is best used with much respect and care, especially the Black Obsidian spheres. Because the Black Obsidian draws in negative energy, be sure to cleanse it regularly, as well as take good care of its physical surroundings. Do not place the Black Obsidian on the floor or anywhere else where it can get neglected. .
Both the Black Obsidian crystal balls, as well as the Black Obsidian polished mirrors, were used in various cultures for deep healing purposes. The highly reflective black color of Obsidian, teamed up with its smooth water-like surface and its volcanic origin, can produce powerful transformation in those who know how to use it.
Another facet of the Black Obsidian identity is its ability to draw in negative energy, thus protecting the wearer or the surroundings in which it is placed. As such, the Black Obsidian was (and still is) used as protection in various body adornments, jewelry, as well as in many areas of one's home.
The powerful alchemical properties of the Black Obsidian are due to its origin. Obsidian is born out of quickly cooled volcanic lava, so it has the most potent energy of the interaction of several raw and powerful elements - fire, earth and water.
In healing, the Black Obsidian is used to help one become more grounded, focused and clear in all practical matters. It can also help develop razor-like mental abilities and the powers of discernment.
Because the Black Obsidian expresses a clear, detached energy of truth without 'taking any sides', it can be very helpful for those who tend to react emotionally to people and events in their life. A piece of Black Obsidian jewelry, be it a ring, a bracelet or even an ankle bracelet, can help anchor erratic energies, bring more balance to one's life and clear one's mind of fears and distractions.
