Healing Properties of Rainbow Obsidian
Spiritual: Rainbow Obsidian acts as a bridge between the dark and light places inside of us, making it a powerful crystal ally whenever we are ready to do important personal work. Rainbow Obsidian offers us safe passage and guidance into those dark parts of ourselves that most scare us so that we can find and process any pain that is trapped there. It also helps us to find the lost parts of ourselves so we can heal and reclaim them. Like all varieties of Obsidian, it is a stone of truth which shows us the true nature of reality. But while regular Obsidian can reveal the truth harshly in a naked light, Rainbow Obsidian reveals the truth more gently so that we can more easily process and understand it. Rainbow Obsidian clears the aura and other energy fields of any stagnate or negative energy that has gotten trapped within. It is attuned to the Root Chakra in particular, but can be used to cleanse all the Charkas and linked to the astrological sign of Libra. It is connected to the element of Earth and vibrates to the number 2.
Emotional: Rainbow Obsidian shows us how to navigate affairs of the heart with ease and optimism. It helps us to recognize the truth about ourselves and about other people, so that we can make good emotional choices. Rainbow Obsidian can be used to attract a new romantic relationship. It can also be used to cut emotional ties that link us to old romances. By cutting these ties, we can then look back upon old relationships fondly but move forward into new relationships that may bring greater joy to our hearts. Rainbow Obsidian lifts away depression by helping us focus our attention on the present moment and future opportunities, rather than dwelling on the past. If we are suffering from intense mood-swings, Rainbow Obsidian can help us to ground down and find the correct mood that best matches our current circumstances. If we are suffering from the darkest realms of depression, Rainbow Obsidian can serve as a physical, touchable reminder to not lose all hope and to hang on for another day. It promises that even after the darkest and rainiest days, light and beauty comes again.
Mental: Rainbow Obsidian help us think logically and clearly about our problems, especially complex emotional issues. It helps us to recognize what is actually true, rather than stubbornly focusing on what we wish was true. Rainbow Obsidian also helps us to get out of our heads and start actively participating in life. It encourages us to to take pleasure in the world around us and to never miss an opportunity to celebrate good times. If we are struggling emotionally, Rainbow Obsidian is a gentle friend. It helps us to think realistically, while symultaniously helping us to find the positive perspectives and responses. If we have loved and laughed once, it promises us that we will love and laugh again.
Physical: Rainbow Obsidian encourages us to explore the physical pleasures of life. This includes adult sensual pleasures as well as childlike play and timeless forms of celebration. Rainbow Obsidian reminds us to take time to play and move our bodies in ways that challenge and engage us. It also reminds us to surround ourselves with soft and delightful sensations, delicious food, fantastic music, and other types of hedonistic pleasure. Rainbow Obsidian teaches us to celebrate the joy of living and be present in the moment. It is also recommended for times when we feel physically tense or shocked because of an emotional situation. It reminds us to take a deep breath and re-center ourselves so that we don’t allow our fight/flight response to take over. Rainbow Obsidian helps us to see the situation clearly, stay calm and make good choices. It is an excellent talisman for bruised or strained muscles as well as the physical heart.
