‘The intrinsic properties of the numerous forms of Obsidian include the reflection of one’s flaws and the promotion of a clear picture of the changes which are necessary to eliminate the flaws. The energies of Obsidian produce very blunt answers, focusing one’s inner vision and stimulating a picture of the required course of action.
‘Obsidian is an excellent grounding stone and provides for a connection from the base of the spine to the heart of the Earth. It is an excellent protective stone, stabilizing internal and external energies and gently protecting one from that which could bring physical and/or emotional harm.
‘It provides a shield against negativity, transforming negative vibrations within an environment. Carrying or wearing Obsidian further disperses those unloving thoughts which arise from within the self or are directed towards one’s physical form.
‘In healing, it provides both the healer and the subject with clarity with respect to both the cause and the amelioration of the dis-ease.’
