Let’s talk about energetic cord cutting! When we are ready to move something out of our lives that is not healthy, or no longer serving us, energetic cord cutting is one way to do this. It can be as simple as a small mantra before bed (“I call my energy back to me, and release what isn’t mine”) – or you can create a ritual with one of your tools, such as these crystal blades, to release the energy, habits, dis-ease, or things that are holding you back. Cutting cords with individuals can be controversial, and if you are brand new to this energetic work, I would suggest you practice on smaller areas first – cutting cords with bad habits, like chewing your nails, or addictions, such as to food or video games, etc. Using a crystal blade, dagger, or knife, you can cut the energetic cord that connects from the center of your body to the habit or health issue. Speak aloud that you release the cord that ties you to this thing, easing the energetic hold that it has on you. Speak aloud if you can, smoke cleanse with white sage or palo santo (both ethically harvested versions are available here in the shop) before and after the ritual, and feel yourself letting go of the ties to this thing or object. Release yourself from being wrapped up in the identity of that thing – you are not your experiences, rather they inform the trajectory of your life, which is ultimately something you choose.
Each of these black obsidian swords was hand carved by fairly paid artisans in India. I am proud to partner with them and bring these to you!
This listing is for ONE (1) Hand Carved Black Obsidian Dagger/Knife/Sword for energetic cord cutting! Each one is slightly different, but all measure approximately 5-7 inches long and are carved from a solid piece of black obsidian.
Utilized in the Paleolithic period (starting about 40,000 years ago), brittle and sharp Obsidian was carved into arrowheads, spears, and other tools to assist early humankind. When molten lava cools, it forms glass over time; but Obsidian cooled quickly and remained opaque – creating the most potent natural glass known to earth!
This incredibly ancient healing ally reminds us of our light and dark nature, striving to help us reach a balance in our polarities. Obsidian doesn’t want us to hide from our darker nature: in fact, it shines a light onto it so that we can acknowledge and heal our shadow selves. And encourages us to face our true selves. Obsidian is metaphysically revered for its ability to cut through negativity, repair the aura, and increase our self control – it has also been traditionally used for scrying. It’s a stone found all around the world, and reveals itself to us in a myriad of colors, sheens, and shimmers, but none so deeply powerful as black Obsidian. Incredibly protective and grounding, Obsidian is a must-have in any crystal healer’s collection – a powerful talisman of thousands of years between its first uses and now.
Fun fact for all you GoT fans out there: Obsidian is the stone referred to as “Dragon Glass” in the Game of Thrones universe!
All stones and crystals in our shop have been cleansed with our natural mountain spring water (except for those that may dissolve in water, such as selenite) and have been smudged with organic white sage, harvested sustainably and produced fairly.
Please note that crystals, minerals and fossils are a natural product and are rarely perfect. I do my best to capture each side of each piece in the photos. They are creations of Mother Nature that have weathered the elements and more for untold number of years, and I cannot guarantee perfection or perfect points. These are natural objects. All photographs are taken outside, in natural sunlight, and the photos are NEVER altered. 🙂
