This gorgeous Tibetan Blue Obsidian Flower of Life pendant is a faceted cut, designed according to the principles of sacred geometry in the tradition of famous energy healer and IBM scientist Marcel Vogel.
This unique flower-like 12 pointed star has a sterling silver setting which shows its luminous quality and allows the stone to breathe. It is on a simple sterling silver chain which allows it to hang freely right at the thymus between the throat and the heart chakras.
This gorgeous, energetically powerful Blue Obsidian Flower of Life pendant comes from the banks of the Yarlung Zangbo River. The Zangbo is the highest altitude major river in the world, originating in the Tamlung Tso Lake in Western Tibet, southeast of Mount Kailash, one of the most sacred sites on Planet Earth.
This beautiful, extremely rare gemstone imparts the unique energy signature of the High Himalayas. Jane and I feel a taste of that "peace that passeth understanding" when meditating with this Blue Obsidian, and we feel that there is a reason this particular stone has recently come onto the world markets -- because Lightworkers, meditators and healers definitely need the specific vibrations imparted by this remarkable stone.
Properties of the Flower of Life
The 12 pointed star is associated with Christ Consciousness and the restoration of Divine Order. The Flower of Life Pendant is an evolutionary tool for those who wish to reclaim the purity and grace of their soul, as it was originally created. The Flower of Life places one within the center of abundant nurturing energy of the Universe.
In the words of Drunvalo Melchizedek, a modern metaphysical Master of sacred geometry, "The Flower of Life symbol is considered to be sacred among many cultures around the world, both ancient and modern. Within this symbol can be found all the building blocks of the universe that we call the Platonic Solids."
"The symbol can be used as a metaphor to illustrate the connectedness of all life and spirit within the universe. The Platonic Solids are important because they are found in the rudimentary construction of organic life, as well as music, language, and consciousness itself. In the Flower of Life workshop we show how these building blocks of life called the Platonic Solids serve as templates through which the foundation of all life everywhere can be expressed. Once this is understood, the importance of the Flower of Life becomes apparent as a totally integrated expression of 'God' or 'All That Is.'"
Properties of Tibetan Blue Obsidian
Obsidian is a silicon-rich glassy substance formed by the rapid cooling of volcanic material. Often quite dark and opaque, obsidian also occurs as translucent or transparent, gemmy material that is prized by jewelers, toolmakers and Lightworkers alike.
Because of its lack of a highly defined inner crystalline structure, obsidian can be fashioned into extremely thin and durable, super-sharp blades, and was used in prehistorical times for fashioning tools and weapons, while modern toolmakers create surgical scalpel blades with almost molecular thinness from this unique substance.
Blue obsidian, which rarely occurs as transparent, gemstone quality material, energizes the throat chakra, which is associated with the color blue in the Western chakra system, while engaging Higher Mind, enabling the bearer to concentrate during clairvoyant sessions, and is thus highly useful to those engaged in telepathic communications during meditation, or in pre-cognitive activities such as Tarot card reading or divinations of all kinds. In addition, blue obsidian is an ideal stone for use during astral travel, providing protection while facilitating the journey.
Blue Obsidian strengthens the flow of Universal Life Force energy, also known as chi or prana in the region of the throat chakra, enhancing the bearer's abiity to communicate spiritual truths and facilitating the ability to communicate through the compassionate heart and connecting to inner spiritual guidance. Blue obsidian is used to develop clairvoyance and enhance the bearer's ability to channel messages from Spirit.
Obsidian is considered by crystal healers and shamanic practitioners to be an excellent grounding stone which provides a shield of energetic protection around the bearer.
In meditation, Jane and I have found that Tibetan Blue Obsidian helps relax the physical body, quiet the mind, and energize the heart chakra.
I was meditating with my Tibetan Blue-Green Obsidian meditation stone, which is rough and uncut, and the size of a quail egg, when I started to feel all the tiny muscles around my eyes relax. Then the relaxation spread to my entire face, my shoulders, my arms and hands, down into my chest, trunk, and belly.
I continued to enjoy the feeling of muscles relaxing, and I realized as my legs and feet relaxed, that the reason I normally get sore after prolonged meditation is that I am still trying to push energy around while meditating. This makes my body tense up.
It's hard work keeping my mind "alert" yet "empty" and when there is a strong intent, the will forces engage, and often the body tenses as a result. The more expectations I have about my practice, the more devoted I am, in fact, the more I may tense into the work of "meditation", which includes observing myself and my mind during meditation, rather than simply relaxing into present moment awareness.
Yes, I realized, relaxation is the key to prolonged, deep meditation. Thank you Tibetan Blue Green Obsidian, for reminding me of that, and for helping me to simply allow the flow of Being to be present in this body. When the body feels that Flow, the body automatically begins to relax, and when the mind enters that Flow as well, then true meditation can begin.
Tibetan Blue Obsidian is a powerful, protective stone, which brings the purity of the rivers of the High Himayas to your energy field. In fact crystal healers recommend Blue Obsidian to all those who seek to remove unwanted energetic attachments from their auric fields. We all have a myriad of energetic attachments to other people -- our families, friends, co-workers, loved ones, and even those with whom we interact casually in our world, including in cyberspace!
Sometimes those energetic attachments can act as conduits for negative emotions, unwanted energies, and unpleasant thought-forms that are truly alien to our own being.
This is why all spiritual practices teach ways to disconnect from the energy fields of the mass of humanity. Lightworkers, shamanic healers, crystal healers, meditators, and energy workers all have developed a myriad of practices, rituals and exercises designed to detach these energetic “hooks and cords” from our auras and our chakra system.
Blue Obsidian provides a potent protection from the flow of undesirable thoughts, emotions and energies in our environment which have their origins in the negativity of other people with whom we come in contact day and night.
Tibetan Blue Obsidian is a stone of personal protection and physical relaxation, a stone of truth-telling, a stone of deep meditation, and above all a stone that connects the bearer to the elementals, devas and nature-spirits who inhabit the elevated regions of the Himalayan Mountains. This is the place where Earth's mightiest rivers are born -- where snow melt powers the world's cleanest alpine water, fresh from its vortexial flow down steep mountainous streams, to merge into powerful flows that reach down into China and India and Southeast Asia, providing for the needs of billions of people.
Himalayan Rivers include the Indus, Ganges, Yangtze, Brahmaputra, Salween, Mekong, Xunjiang Red River (Asia), Irrawaddy River, Chao Phraya, Syr Darya, Amu Darya, Tarim River and Yellow River.
"The collective catchment area of the Himalayan Rivers houses around 3 billion people (nearly 50% of the population of the world) in Bangladesh, Afghanistan, People's Republic of China, Bhutan, Nepal, India, Cambodia, Burma, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Thailand, Kyrgyzstan, Vietnam, Laos, Pakistan, and Malaysia," according to mapsofindia.com.
We often use crystal pendants for psychic protection, purification and to clarify things of a spiritual nature. See our article on Psychic Self Defense for more information along these lines with many suggestions on how to protect yourself from unwanted energies.
