★ Metaphysical Properties and Mystic Lore: Black Obsidian is an excellent grounding stone and provides for a connection from the base of your spine to the heart of the Earth. It’s an excellent shield against negativity and is used for protection. Black Obsidian is a catalyst for connecting deeper within yourself and accepting and embracing everything you are, your whole self. It is very nurturing and in periods of intense change and transformation it helps you to relieve worry, anxiety, fear and negativity. It is also a strong polarizer and grounder of spiritual energy. Carry Black Obsidian to keep yourself grounded and to protect you from others’ energies. It’s a stone of great depth for those willing to go within. Black Obsidian facilitates your journey inward and guides you. Obsidians are not subtle, however! They get to the point and they fly direct! They help you to get back on track or start up again when you get stuck and need to move on, but can’t seem to. It is quick to point out where you are holding back, need to grow, and are in denial. It’s a powerful tool for personal growth, to be used consciously for speedy evolution. Black Obsidian is often used as a scrying stone, as it polishes to a beautiful, mirror-like surface with the depth of infinite space!
