Healing Properties of Black Obsidian
- Protection: Black Obsidian not only shields you from negativity, but also absorbs negative vibes from your environment. Think of it like a boundary-maker and a boundary-enforcer. It even helps shield us from our own negativity - like the destructive power of negative self-talk or self-doubt.
- Grounding: This black stone helps you ground yourself, so you feel more in tune with your body. You will feel more confident in your own skin, and not as caught up with the hamster wheel of your thoughts.
- Cleansing: Use Black Obsidian to release feelings of fear, anger, and resentment as well as old bad habits in order to move forward with positivity - vibrating at your highest frequency.
Ways To Use Black Obsidian
You can (and should!) incorporate your Black Obsidian crystal in whatever way your intuition suggests, but here are a few ideas to get you started:
- Entryway Shield: Placing Black Obsidian in any entryway (to your home, to your bedroom, to your office, etc.) is a great way to keep out negative vibes from your safe spaces.
- Self-Talk Meditation: If you've been struggling with negative self-talk, it's time to do a cleansing meditation. Place your Black Obsidian near you. Close your eyes and say 10 positive statements about yourself (I am athletic. I am a good cook. I am worthy of true love.) If any negative or doubtful thoughts come in, don't shame yourself for them. Simply let them go and keep filling your mind with the positive affirmations.
- Combinations: Combine Black Obsidian with Black Tourmaline for incredibly powerful protection against negativity. Combine Black Obsidian with Smokey Quartz for deeply centering into your body and grounding into the earth.
- Chakra: Black Obsidian is connected to the root chakra. You can place the crystal on this chakra to help unblock stagnant energy and bring balance.
