DAY 18 | Mahogany Obsidian Heart

DAY 18 | Mahogany Obsidian Heart

Why a heart?

The heart is often used to symbolise a person's moral, emotional, spiritual and even intellectual substance. The heart has been referred to and believed to be the core of one’s humanity. It was used and is still used as the primary symbol that represents LOVE. Or is it?

A group of researchers believes that the heart symbol is not remotely related to the human heart but is more of an ancient depiction of something more sexual in nature. However, the heart symbol has evolved over the centuries for today, the heart symbol best expresses LOVE on all levels.

True enough today, the heart symbol is widely recognised not only as a symbol of love but of compassion, joy, and charity.

Mahogany Obsidian is a type of Obsidian with Hematite or Magnetite inclusions within, giving it its red, brownish color.

A hugely protective stone, this one is perfect for people who feel vulnerable to psychic or energy attack.

Mahogany Obsidian is often used to remove energy cords between people that sap energy and violate boundaries. It is also used for protection from psychic attacks by those who wish to harm (or those who don’t even intend to but their energy is negative or aggressive and might inadvertently do so). It is also said to strengthen the aura, protecting against repeated problems.

Wonderful at providing both grounding and protection, Mahogany Obsidian encourages strength in time of need. It eliminates energetic blockages, relieves tension and helps to stimulate growth on all levels.

When you want to reclaim your power Mahogany Obsidian is a great meditation tool for helping with re-connection.
