Black Obsidian has intense grounding abilities while also being extremely protective. It works to shield you from negative energy but also is a great conduit to help you release negativity that you may be carrying.
This stone is very helpful while meditating as it can enhance physic visions and boost intuitive gifts.
It can also make you aware of things in your life that need to be addressed and potentially changes within yourself that need to be made. Nothing will remain hidden when Obsidian is about. Through this deep level of self understanding, a deeper level of grounding can be achieved.
Rough cut Black Obsidian is extremely sharp and should be handled with caution at all times.
