It is helpful in developing intuition and grounding you to the earth, releasing negative energies that result in restlessness, irritability and nervousness.
Obsidian protects the wearer from hostility, negativity, psychic ‘vampires’ and spiritual entities that do not belong.
Physically, Obsidian often points to the root cause of an illness. It clears the blockages that cause disease. Use Obsidian for detoxifying, alleviating bleeding, increasing blood circulation, and helping with the pain associated with arthritis and other joint discomfort.
