Black Obsidian is an incredibly powerful and creative stone.
Like many darker stones, Black Obsidian is very grounding and protective. It forms a shield against negativity and is a great stone for anyone that is highly sensitive.
This stone has been known to make you really face your true self and it is important to understand that working with Obsidian can be incredibly challenging and overwhelming, as it can bring negative emotions and unkind truths to the surface very quickly.
It is a great stone for addressing any power issues, teaching us that to be empowered is not to wield personal power but to channel power for the good of all.
