Black Obsidian is a grounding stone that provides an instant connection from the Root Chakra deep into the Earth's core. Black Obsidian will help clean and remove negative energy in a sacred space. It also helps release emotions or reactions that cause negative energy such as anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, etc. Once these energies are removed, Black Obsidian will help to keep the space protected.
Black Obsidian is used to heal and release energy blockages and quickly reveal the truth for resolution. This allows both healer and subject an uncommon clarity to the primary cause of the issue. If you have a physical illness that you think has an emotional reason, Black Obsidian could be the fastest way to discover the cause, but you must be willing to face it and be ready to correct it. Black Obsidian can be very strong, and you must be prepared to confront your issues when working with this stone. Healers may use Black Obsidian to help those unable or unwilling to let go of the past.
Black Obsidian can also be used to gaze or scrying simultaneously with Quartz to help make sense of any images or ideas gleaned from it. Using Black Obsidian can bring the grand vision in this purpose. To gaze/scry with Black Obsidian, choose a quiet environment with soft lighting, get into a relaxed state, and gently gaze at the stone. Remain open to any images or insights that come into your mind.
