Obsidian is a volcanic glass stone that vibrates to the number one and is associated with the astrological sign of Sagittarius (Melody, 1991).
It is a powerful stone that must be treated with respect. It is recommended that you ensure that you are fully prepared to work with Obsidian because of its intense ability to “bring to light” the dark and shadowy aspects of our subconscious mind and our character (Raphaell, 1985).
Obsidian resonates to the energies of the planet Pluto which is the nuclear reactor of our astrological system (Raphaell, 1985). Like Pluto energy, Obsidian will “bring to light” and bring to the surface ego-based ways of thinking to be processed, cleansed, and ultimately aligned with the divine in order to assist in advancing your personal evolution (Raphaell, 1985).
Obsidian has no patience for the ego and will therefore bring about these evolutionary changes in a very blunt, matter-of-fact manner (Raphaell, 1985). Because of this energy, Obsidian has been nicknamed “The Warrior of Truth” (Raphaell, 1985). While illuminating your flaws, Obsidian will also clearly illuminate knowledge of how to heal and eliminate those very flaws (Melody, 1991).
Obsidian is truly unique among the black stones because instead of absorbing light, it has the ability to attract, contain, and reflect large amounts of light while maintaining its own power (Raphaell, 1985). Black obsidian can assist one on their path to becoming a master of light while operating here on earth in the material plane (Raphaell, 1985). It represents the very highest level of achievement in this regard.
Obsidian is here to teach us how to bring more light into a dark world shining light on all darkened places within the mind and grounding light into the material plane to assist with manifesting (Raphaell, 1985). It draws our divine soul qualities into one’s body cleansing away all lower vibrational energies allowing one to effectively work with the light (Raphaell, 1985).
Obsidian is good for stabilizing energy in those who are erratic, overly emotional, spaced out, or daydream & fantasize too much allowing those who daydream to bring their ideas into reality (Raphaell, 1985).
It is also a powerful stone for grounding your life force energy (chi) into the heart of the earth (Melody, 1991). It provides a shield of protection that will stabilize internal and external energies and prevent one from experiencing physical and/or emotional harm (Melody, 1991). It can also transform unloving thoughts that originate from inside of you or which are directed toward your physical body (Melody, 1991).
Utilizing Obsidian while healing allows both the healer and the person being healed to have a great deal of clarity about the cause and remedy of the presented disease (Melody, 1991).
