Obsidian is a powerful tool for scrying, shamanic visioning, and oracle work. Using this crystal in magickal proceedings will help you tap into your powers of intuition and heighten your divination skills. It can be used as a doorway between the worlds, to tap into the Akashic records, as well as repelling negativity in all its forms.
This gemstone also helps to clear negative thoughts, habits, and attachments while guiding you to the root causes, providing a pathway for transformation. Obsidian provides mystical protection, grounding, exposes your ego motivations, empowers manifestation rituals, and aligns your actions with Divine Will.
The skull shape helps the practitioner move beyond the illusions of the physical world, and strengthens connections to ancestors, spirits, and other entities of the world beyond.
