Metaphysical Benefits Of Obsidian
Obsidian releases tension so that you can move forward in life with a positive outlook. When you experience negative emotions, it is important to calmly acknowledge them, instead of suppressing them or hyper-fixating on them. Obsidian will help you identify these energies and release them, while protecting you from outside negativity. This emotional work brings you the clarity and balance to overcome confusion and relieve feelings of irritability, nervousness, or restlessness. In particular, Obsidian protects victims of domestic abuse and sexual assault, helping them release their trauma so they can heal.
Snowflake Obsidian’s centering and calming properties made it the perfect aid for deep meditation practices. This stone is also great to place in your office or workspace, because it cleanses stagnation, tension, and boredom. Use Snowflake Obsidian with animal totems to increase their presence.
