Obsidian has been used for thousands of years to make tools and weapons; as well as amulets for spiritual protection.
Jet black and smooth to touch, this stone looks like ancient glass. Obsidian helps you become more focused and strengthens your mental abilities. Grounding you to the earth, anchoring erratic emotions and moods, this crystal is perfect to use when you need to clear your mind.
Crystal Healing Tips
➵ Chakra Healing
Obsidian supports the root chakra and is known to absorb any lingering insecurities and fears. If you feel unsettled and anxious lie down for twenty minutes with a piece of obsidian over your root chakra, you should feel much better afterwards.
➵ How to manifest
This crystal can be used to manifest extra energetic protection. So energy vampires beware! Some old crystal healing traditions advise you to bury a piece of obsidian in your garden, or in a plant pot in your home to keep the naysayers at bay.
➵ How to use your crystal
Obsidian can be used to protect your energy. Sleep next to this crystal if you are particularly anxious, and carry around a small piece of obsidian as a worry stone to hold when you are in need of comfort and support.
Obsidian is a stone of truth, its sharpness symbolising its ability to cut through lies and blockages, clearing away emotional pain and providing protection from the impact of emotional trauma.
Keep around your home, by doorways or bury outside for energetic protection. Obsidian draws out negativity from its surroundings, therefore it is very important to cleanse it regularly by smoking herbs or rinsing with salt water.

Manifestation is when you attract something into existence through the power of your mind. The trick to manifestation is simple, you just need to truly believe that you deserve to have your most amazing dreams come true.
Being an expert manifestor is, for some people, a process. Begin your manifestation journey by focusing on the small wins, like a convenient parking spot or a seat on a busy train. Once you start seeing evidence of some smaller wishes come true, you’ll be ready to give big manifestations a go.
Setting your intention
for every day, little manifestations
Using the power of intention is a simple practice that can be incorporated into your everyday life. The real trick to setting an intention is seeing it through. You must not let negative thinking hold you back. Easier said than done right? That is why crystal work can be an excellent support tool for self work.
Choose a crystal you feel drawn to, set your intention by speaking to the crystal. Just hold your precious gemstone and whisper your wish. Carry your crystal with you so it can be a constant reminder of your mission statement.
Moon Cycle Manifestation
for big manifestation
You can use the moon’s cycle to support your big manifestations. You need to start on the new moon and everyday of the 28 day moon cycle set your intention on a specific wish.
On the night of the new moon you place your crystals in a prominent place in your home, maybe somewhere in the moonlight like a windowsill. Every night until the full moon repeat your intention and see what magic manifests!

Chakra healing meaning: The word chakra is originally Sanskrit, meaning 'wheel' or 'turning'. It refers to our main energy centres and how they affect our physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing. Each chakra has its own colour, element and purpose.
Your body is an energy system, and each part has its own function. While your heart keeps the blood flowing and your lungs keep you breathing, your energy system keeps your whole body working properly.
Your chakras need energy to flow through them in order to keep your spiritual body healthy. Imbalances in your energy system can cause psychological and physical symptoms, so it's important to keep your chakras in balance.
One of the ways you can heal your chakra system is through crystal realignment. You simply lay down and place a crystal of the corresponding colour on the chakra point, then sit back and relax as your energy blends with the healing frequency of the crystal.
A crystal's healing properties work on a spiritual level. They help clear your mind and restore your energy. Check out the chart below that illustrates the colour associations with each chakra point, plus examples of crystals that work well for alignments.
*You may be aware of the major seven chakras, the main energy centres of the body in the Indian and Buddhist traditions. But in fact, there are over a hundred chakra points, and at MCC we focus on ten.

How to cleanse your crystals:
1. Smoke cleanse
This is a very popular way to cleanse your crystals. The purifying smoke removes any energetic residue. You should always cleanse your crystals before you charge them.
Some crystal healing enthusiasts use candles or herb bundles. You can also use a bowl of mixed resins and herbs. Sage, rosemary and myrrh make a beautiful blend. Many shamanic healers use sage or palo Santo sticks. You should move the smoke around in a clockwise direction to cleanse the stone.
2. Sound healing
Sound healing is a great way to uplift your crystals' energy. It is believed that crystals align very well with the frequency of the sound. A lot of spiritual practitioners use a traditional singing bowl, but you can also download healing frequency sounds from Youtube. My favourite healing frequency is 432 hz, the universal frequency of harmony and peace.
How to charge your crystals under the full moon
The full moon marks the peak of the moon’s illumination, and this powerful moonlight is considered to be full of high vibrational energy that will charge your crystals up to their full healing capacity.
Traditionally, it is recommended to cleanse your crystals and leave them in the direct moonlight all night long. If you have a specific crystal healing purpose for any of your stones, you can prepare them by setting an intention.
