If feeling grounded is what you’re after, then Obsidian can help you out. Grounding is essential at all times, to keep us feeling secure and in the present moment. At times, we may feel ‘spaced out’ or ‘not quite in the here and now’. Obsidian can help you get that grounded feeling back again.
If you tend to travel off ‘into space’ when you meditate, then having a piece of Obsidian in your hand or on your person can help keep you grounded.
Obsidian is a natural form of volcanic glass and is a strongly protective stone, forming a shield against negativity. It grounds you to the earth through the base Chakra, absorbs negative energies from the environment, and strengthens you in times of need. It is helpful to highly sensitive people. It blocks psychic attack and removes negative spiritual influences.
Because Obsidian is a natural absorber of negative energies, it is essential to clean the stone under running water each time it has been used so that the stone won’t retain any of the negative energy and send it back to you.
There are different types of Obsidian: Apache tears, Black Obsidian, Blue Obsidian, Golden Sheen Obsidian, Green Obsidian, Mahogany Obsidian, Rainbow Obsidian, Silver Sheen Obsidian, Snowflake Obsidian.
It is easy to place a tumbled stone of Black Obsidian into a pocket or handbag so that you always have that protection. Wearing a bracelet is also a good idea.
This truly is a ‘Go to’ stone to keep in your collection!
