Welcome to our weekly blog: Understanding the Power of Crystals - where each week we will focus on a specific crystal and explain the benefits and how they can provide healing and promote positivity in your life. This week the Crystal we will be focusing on is: Snowflake Obsidian
Snowflake Obsidian is a grounding and protective stone. It is used as a great cleanser of negative energies, helping to remove not only negativity experienced in the environment but also that of one's own emotions, such as anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, etc. Obsidian is often used for healing and releasing energy blockages and has a tendency to work quickly to move truths to the surface to be resolved.
A stone of purity, Snowflake Obsidian brings about a balance to body, mind and spirit. Snowflake Obsidian can remove negativity from a space or person with ease. Volcanic in origin, Snowflake Obsidian helps to draw emotions to the surface and to examine harmful thought patterns.
A good choice for past life work, Snowflake Obsidian heals old karmic patterns and helps in examining harmful thought patterns. Snowflake Obsidian promotes a sense of calm and inner centering which readies one for a deep meditative state.
Snowflake Obsidian teaches you to value mistakes as well as successes. It helps you recognise and release “wrong thinking” and stressful mental patterns. Promotes dispassion and inner centering.
Snowflake Obsidian empowers isolation and loneliness, aiding surrender in meditation.
Snowflake Obsidian aids in disorders of the veins and the skeletal structure. It improves circulation and alleviates muscular aches and spasms. Treats joint pain (arthritis) and hardening of the arteries.
It calms and soothes the system, and helps one be more receptive to recognizing unnecessary patterns of negativity, self-defeat, “poor me” victimization, or unyielding emotional stress. Snowflake Obsidian allows one to see through the darkness of adversity and to realign with the light, perceiving sources of support that may have been overlooked or taken for granted, and to find the strength and willingness to shift one’s reality for the better. It inspires new ideas to improve one’s condition, and opens new pathways of spiritual thought and connection. It increases one’s psychic sensitivity for recognizing meaningful synchronicities pointing the way to one’s higher path.
Snowflake Obsidian is not ideal for gazing, but is superb for stimulating total surrender during the meditative state, and can assist one in connecting with the world of souls to communicate with lost loved ones. It is excellent for overcoming feelings of loneliness and isolation, and its presence in the workplace provides an ongoing cleanser for stagnation, lack of enthusiasm and undercurrents of tension. Snowflake Obsidian is an excellent tool for attuning to animal totems and animal allies, and for becoming more sensitive to the subtle flow and movement of energy in the environment.
