With living in a world of uncertainty and so many changes happening at the moment some people might be taking this time to re-structure their day to day life. This could be getting used to a new routine, or just trying to gut out the bad gugu from their lives and staring off with a fresh beginning after this whole thing is over. With people having more times on their hands, cleansing themselves of negativity is a great way to spend this extra time, and with the assistance of Obsidian it is so easy to do!
If you find that you are being drawn to the mysterious, dark vibes of Obsidian, it could be a sign that you are in need of a deep psychic cleanse. Obsidian basically works as your spiritual maid service as it works hard to clean up the emotional wreckage of your past. Some like to say that Obsidian works as a bodyguard to your soul, fighting off addiction, fear, anxiety, and anger by acting as a mirror to your inner self. Obsidian works with your negative qualities in order to clear them out and work to protect against them in the future.
But don't get me wrong, Obsidian is a powerful stone to work with, for it does not have a clearly defined shape and can work in a very direct way. Pulling positive energy from a variety of places and to push out the negative energy in indirect ways. This stone will help you heal by bringing to the surface any issues that you need to deal with in order to make progress in healing. Obsidian will assist you in re-powering yourself by letting you look in the mirror of your inner beings, going deep into subconscious, facing what needs to be faced. It will take away all negative energy of your lifetimes to free your soul for a more spiritual and fulfilling life. Obsidian is known to bring people back to their spiritual paths and to reveal the beauty you hold in the deepest part of your soul.
Wondering how you can use/work with Obsidian in your own home?
1. Meditate with Obsidian. Think about your future and what you truly want to get out of in life moving forward and what you need to leave behind in the past.
2. Place a piece of Obsidian in your sacred space along with photos of any family members who have crossed over to the other side. Invite your ancestors into your space, letting them know that they are welcome, and ask them to keep you safe from harm. Offer to share the stone's energy with them as a way to thank them for protection and kindness.
