It might seem weird that a jet-black stone can show you your true self, but it is one of the many properties of healing crystals. They don’t necessarily make sense and may just stone to some people. But that doesn’t mean we can’t appreciate these pretty gems and get curious about finding out more about their abilities. Author of Crystal Muse: Everyday Rituals to Tune In to the Real You, Heather Askinosie, Heather Askinosie explains the many benefits of black obsidian healing crystal including self-love and getting rid of negative energy.
Origin: Obsidian is a type of rock that forms from molten lava and cools very quickly. This means it can be found in areas where there has (or had) been volcanic activity including New Zealand, Japan, Iceland, and the United States.
Color: Obsidian gems comes in many different colors, including rainbows and swoons. But the black obsidian is the most popular.
Healing properties: Askinosie explains, “Facing the good, the bad, and the ugly parts of ourselves is hard, but obsidian makes it easier. Through showing you a reflection of your true self, obsidian forces you to accept yourself entirely.” Obsidian is a great choice for people who need to cleanse their lives of negative energy. It absorbs all that toxic energy, so it’s important to see what needs cleaning up before you get your obsidian.
How to use it: Askinosie advises, “Use black obsidian while doing any self-reflection work, such as journaling or meditating,” Keep the crystal to you during meditation, it will help you identify any blocks and negative habits that are holding you back.
If you’re looking for a way to break your bad patterns, then maybe try using the power of black obsidian healing crystal. We don’t entirely know if they will work or not but it’s worth giving them a shot anyway.
