Known as volcanic glass, one of obsidian’s earliest uses was a tool that ancient people could easily break and fashion into arrowheads or axes. In this way, rainbow obsidian reminds us that even when we feel broken, we can carve a new strength out of that break. A rainbow obsidian heart is the ideal crystal to nurture and rejuvenate your heart after an emotional trauma. Whether it’s a broken heart, the loss of a loved one, grief or depression, the loving support that rainbow obsidian infuses your root chakra with will help you peel yourself out of bed, and begin taking steps toward seeing the beauty of life again.
Even in the way that rainbow obsidian is formed, it is a stone that exemplifies journeying back from darkness. Starting as black obsidian, after being polished and exposed to an intense light source, rainbow obsidian unveils brilliant bands of red, green, blue and gold. Each color represents a different cooling stage that the molten lava took to develop into the present stone. Remember this as you struggle through one of your own phases, and embrace the banded-but-whole energy of rainbow obsidian.
As a highly protective stone, rainbow obsidian is perfect for shielding a vulnerable spirit from negative energy. That includes the negativity that may radiate from within. A rainbow obsidian stone will clean your emotional body of any self-sabotaging patterns that emotional trauma can stimulate. The reflective nature of obsidian is just as much present in its metaphysical properties as in its physical appearance. Use rainbow obsidian to look back at yourself and see what aspects of your own behavior are causing you heartache.
Lay the rainbow obsidian heart over your heart, with the heart-colored side facing down. As you lay in this heart-to-heart formation with yourself and the stone, turn to yourself to question why it is you beat yourself up, why you sabotage relationships, why you never hold yourself to a high enough standard or whatever other deeply honest questions you truly need to be asking in order to heal your broken heart and make changes moving forward. The rainbow obsidian stone allows us to say we are willing to take a journey through our shadow-self, to bring forth the issues we have been hiding in order to move forward with love and light.
What Does It Mean When I’m Drawn to a Rainbow Obsidian Heart:
When you are drawn to a rainbow obsidian heart, it usually means that you are ready to dig into the layers of your own heart, and release the negative energy that’s settled in there. Have you gone through a difficult experience that has left an imprint on your spirit? Are you holding onto on pain from your past that you’ve found nearly impossible to let go of? These are the experiences often build strength and resilience in our spirit as we grow wiser and more compassionate as a result. But before we can build up, we have to move on. Moving on from your grief means letting go of the pain that in some way still connects you to fond memories. Whether you’re going through a divorce, a loss of a friend or a loved one has passed away, connecting with the energy of rainbow obsidian can help you distinguish between the fond memories and the sense of pain. That way you can release the sadness, while remaining grateful for the joy that you were blessed with.
How to Use Your Rainbow Obsidian Heart:
Lay the rainbow obsidian heart over your heart, with the heart-patterned side facing down. As you lay in this heart-to-heart formation with yourself and the crystal, turn to yourself to question why it is you beat yourself up, why you sabotage relationships, why you never hold yourself to a high enough standard or whatever other deeply honest questions you truly need to be asking in order to heal your broken heart and make changes moving forward. You may want to journal about your answers to your questions to help propel you forwards and expedite the shift.
The ideal time to do your crystal ritual with your rainbow obsidian heart is during the waning period of the moon--the period between the Full Moon and the next new moon. This is a wonderful time to do release work and letting go.
