Healing Properties of Mahogany Obsidian
Spiritual: Mahogany Obsidian is a deep grounding stone which helps us to anchor our spiritual life within the full spectrum of mortal human life. It helps us stay centered and approach life with a holistic attitude that includes caring for our spiritual, emotional, and physical needs in equal proportions. It also helps us to better recognize both the mind-body connection as well as the body-mind connection. Mahogany Obsidian additionally protects against negative psychic energy from other people as well as psychic attacks from other entities. It is an abundance stone, reminding us that our financial health and well-being is important too and that we deserve to have security and enjoyment. Mahogany Obsidian is attuned to the Root and Sacral Chakras and linked to the astrological signs of Libra and Sagittarius. It is connected to the element of Earth and vibrates to the numbers 1 and 4.
Emotional: Mahogany Obsidian is a very comforting stone to work with when dealing with old emotional traumas and wounds. It gently and safely brings up unconscious memories of abuse, feelings of shame, and guilt, and beliefs about our own self worth. It then helps us to work through them and find true resolution. Mahogany Obsidian also encourages us to freely express our sensuality and sexuality, and let go of negative body images, asking us to please release and believe we are beautiful just as we are. It has a gentle energy that is comforting during times when we feel down. If there is nothing we can control, such as in the case of death/grieving, Mahogany Obsidian validates and soothes our emotions. If there is something we can control or change, such as our relationships or career, Mahogany Obsidian helps us to see the actual problem clearly and solve it swiftly and with ease.
Mental: Mahogany Obsidian encourages us to explore our beliefs about whether or not we “deserve” to have good things – such as financial abundance, happy romantic relationships, or a just a better life in general. Mahogany Obsidian helps us to realize that we DO deserve good things and that the past doesn’t have to dictate our future. It then offers us its great strength to help us build happier lives and be confident in our own abilities. Whenever we are engaged in our goals, and living a life which feels meaningful, Mahogany Obsidian infuses us with a sense of vitality and fresh energy.
Physical: Mahogany Obsidian is believed to strengthen the liver, kidneys, and other lower organs. It is most commonly used by metaphysical healers to support detoxification and to reduce physical tension. It is also highly recommended for anyone working through body issue disorders such as anorexia, bulimia, and obesity, as well as unusual physical handicaps.
