Snowflake Obsidian for Shadow Work & Ego Death
Snowflake Obsidian Meaning
Snowflake Obsidian helps facilitate shadow work, a term used to describe looking inward to find and heal our deepest wounds & personal faults. A naturally occurring black glass formed by volcanic activity, it reflects back to us the root causes of self-destructive and otherwise unhelpful behavior patterns.
While challenging, this work allows us to understand and release the pain we hide from ourselves, freeing us to live a more full and authentic life.
An integral part of any spiritual healer’s journey, these aspects can be easily denied and dismissed by the ego. Ego Death – a term used by modern Shamanic practitioners to reference ancient, cross cultural understandings – describes the transformation of the part of us that would deny our underlying issues. The term Spiritual Bypassing references the Western cultural trend of “good vibes & positivity only”, which is often at odds with personal accountability, responsibility & spiritual wholeness.
This insightful stone assists our awareness to find the root cause of anger and it’s more passive expression, resentment. While the manifestation of anger may be as apparent as it is unpleasant, resentment can simmer beneath the surface, undermining our relationships, career and overall enjoyment of life. In order to evolve and grow we must be honest with ourselves and work through these inner truths.
Deeply associated with the Tarot cards The Devil and The Moon.
