The Obsidian is the stone with no boundaries or limitations. Nothing can be hidden from it as its reflective qualities expose flaws, weaknesses and blockages, providing a deep soul healing. It therefore pushes you to grow, while offering support.
The Obsidian is also a strongly protective stone as it blocks out negativity. It is a great crystal for highly sensitive people.
This stone is also grounding and increases self-control.
In essence, if you are looking to find your inner blockages and heal them, while being grounded and energetically protected, the Obsidian is the perfect stone for you.
How to cleanse
The Obsidian, unlike most crystals, should be cleansed often under running water if it is used intensely for deep healing.
For regular uses, my best recommendation for cleansing your crystals is to do so with smoke. This could be from sage, Palo Santo wood or incense sticks. Allow the smoke to engulf your crystal and visualize its energy being renewed. After cleansing it, set your intention for your crystal by holding it in your hands and speaking your affirmation into it, specifically relating to inner healing.
Obsidian is molten lava that cooled down so quickly that it had no time to crystallize.
