Obsidian surrounds you with warrior like protection. Creating a strong container of safety both physically and energetically. Whether you are around aggression, dangerous circumstances or volatile energy, obsidian will surround you. It will help you embody warrior like energy yourself in a very grounded way and when you do not have the energy to do so, it will simply surround you so you can rest. The stone itself is a powerful ally and being able to ingest it's essence adds a whole other layer of protection starting from the inside emanating out.
