Golden Obsidian features a golden chatoyance when viewed in strong light, created from gas bubbles aligning across the layers during formation. Golden Obsidian is an excellent tool for gazing, to view the future or access knowledge from the past, but more importantly to reveal the heart of a problem or situation in the present. While Golden Obsidian reflects that which is needed in one’s life for healing, it does not provide the healing. It does, however, give insight into the paths of action available to bring it about. Golden Obsidian dissolves negativity and purifies the aura, and is particularly useful for clearing blockages of the Solar Plexus Chakra, the seat of the Will. It is highly effective for exposing and releasing ego conflicts, power abuse, and dispelling any sense of futility or cynicism. Golden Obsidian allows one to commune with the Source of all being, and to realign one’s personal power with the Divine to better direct one’s life. It is useful for bringing out hidden talents and to manifest one’s true calling. It is a favorite with Reiki workers and those advanced in the shamanic and healing arts.
