You will need your favorite Obsidian crystal to hold during this crystal meditation.
Before you begin the meditation, cleanse your Obsidian Crystal. Get into a comfortable position sitting or lying down and hold your Obsidian in your hands. If you’re sitting, make sure your legs are uncrossed. During the meditation, allow yourself to receive whatever you need. Let your mind do whatever it needs to do. Be open to receive. Let yourself have an experience.
Gently close your eyes.
Begin by taking a deep cleansing breath - in through your nose while you expand your belly and out through your mouth.
Again, inhale, hold for 3 seconds and exhale through your mouth.
One more time, take a deep long breath in through your nose and exhale through your mouth.
Allow your breath to adjust to your natural rhythm. With each breath, release the thoughts of the day, the week, the month, the past year.
Release any tension from your body.
Release blockages and attachments that no longer serve us.
Let go of discomfort, distractions, stories in your mind, let them fade away. Put them in a box and lock it with a key.
Feel Obsidian in the palm of your hands as it forms a cloak of protection around you.
When Obsidian is called into service, you are safe in its presence.
Obsidian’s powerful shield dissolves any anger, fear or worry to guide you on this peaceful journey.
In this quiet moment, connect with yourself and your inner truth.
Obsidian continues to heal and release any energy blockages to bring you calm and relaxation.
Obsidian’s source of strength grounds your root chakra to connect with the Earthstar chakra below your feet deep into the core of the earth.
You feel more grounded closer to your purpose.
New opportunities and beginnings await you, be open and embrace them.
Continue as long as you wish or until the experience feels complete.
When you’re ready, slowly come back to the present. Gently open your eyes. Place down your Obsidian. Wiggle your arms and toes. Working with your Obsidian sheds the light to ensure you are not faced with obstacles moving forward in your destined path.
- Happy Soul
