Protection I Truth enhancing I Strong I Sheild
Obsidian is truth-enhancing. A strongly protective stone, it forms a shield against negativity. It blocks psychic attack and absorbs negative energies from the environment. Obsidian draws out mental stress and tension. It stimulates growth on all levels, urging exploration of the unknown and opening new horizons.
Traditionally obsidian mirrors are used for scrying, a form of divination that uses shiny or transparent objects. They also make great charging plates for gem elixirs, a stone base for crystal grids, or a cleansing tool during energy work, placing the mirror over congested parts of the subtle body.
This magical object has powerful metaphysical properties and may be the most powerful instrument of divination ever! It doesn’t mess around and it is definitely not for the faint of heart. It has throughout centuries been a highly integrated part of daily and ritual life as the mirror can help you in multiple ways to become more whole. Obsidian mirror is pure magick!
The obsidian mirror is also associated with the God Tezcatlipoca (Mayan/Toltec tradition) and means ‘smoking mirror’. Tezcatlipoca represents aspects of ourselves which means, working with the mirror is to heal your self and your subconscious. This is the same as your subconscious or the void. All traditions point to the same thing.
When working with the obsidian mirror it is important that you cleanse it before and after each use. Cleanse obsidian regularly, especially obsidian as it absorbs negative energies like nothing else.
