Obsidian Arrowhead

Protection, Strength, Stability, and Direction

  • Protection from the Evil Eye, jealousy, treachery and the ill-will of others; 
    protection from negative energy, spirits and spells of ill-intent
  • Brings courage, determination, and strength; fortifies and inspires one with a “warrior’s spirit” to take on any 
  • Promotes self-reflection to access a deep inner-guidance for focus, 
    direction, and rediscovering purpose; acts as a spiritual wayfinder to
    navigate challenging situations with integrity, honoring one’s inner-truth
  • Encourages the pursuit of goals for accomplishment and success; boosts one’s resolve to follow through to see things to completion

How to use:

  • First, cleanse the energy of your arrowhead using any suitable method to what the arrowhead is made from and your intended use (saltwater, dry natural salt, sage, sunlight, moonlight, singing bowl, etc.)
  • For personal protection and power, carry with you as is, or in a pouch with other protective items, herbs, or stones
  • For protecting a space, place near entryways, windows, or doors, or even place pointing in the direction of what you are protecting against
  • Obsidian arrowheads can be placed in a glass of freshwater, out in morning 
    sunlight or in direct sun at noontime, while charging the water with your intention for a few moments— this water can then be sprinkled or sprayed for protection or to drive away negative influences
  • For inner-guidance, direction, and finding your way, sleep with an arrowhead under your pillow and take note of your dreams

Additional Information:

  • Obsidian (SiO2 + MgO, Fe3O4) is volcanic glass: a mixture of cryptocrystalline silica minerals in an amorphous glass-like suspension with trace elements of Magnesium Oxide and Iron Oxide
  • When minute inclusions of water vapor gas bubbles are trapped within the rapidly cooling volcanic glass extrusions— reflected light off these internal surfaces will be visible as a gold or silver sheen
  • Archaeological evidence suggests, Obsidian was already widely being used to produce cutting tools from as early as Paleolithic times, 1.4 million years ago
  • Obsidian occurs worldwide, wherever there has been volcanic activity, though pieces older than a few million years are rare due to the glassy rock being destroyed or altered when exposed to the elements
  • Obsidian comes from Latin, obsidianus, a misprint in the 1650s of Obsianus Lapis, or stone of Obsius,  the name of the Roman credited in the book Naturæ Historiæ (Naturalis Historia) written by naturalist and philosopher, Pliny the Elder in 77 CE, as being the one who found the stone in Ӕthiopia
