Mending a Broken Heart with Crystals

Mending a Broken Heart with Crystals

A difficult romantic relationship can cause you to struggle in many ways. Perhaps you feel depressed, angry, resentful, or even suffer from emotional trauma. When a relationship turns abusive or even co-dependent it can also drain the energy from the sacral and heart chakras.

This leaves you exhausted. Crystals can provide healing through grounding, balance, and renewal for those who may be struggling in a traumatic relationship or those who found the strength to leave one.

Black Obsidian

Black obsidian helps you to release resentment. This crystal is formed from crystallization of molten lava and offers grounding while simultaneously releasing negativity and anger from the user. It offers healing benefits unique to those who have been in abusive relationships.

Using black obsidian paired with meditation can help those effected by the anger of their ex-lovers as a way to clear dark energy from auras. It will also create forgiveness in those who have lingering feelings of wanting to take revenge on an ex. Try the grounding exercise below with the black obsidian.

Find a quiet, distraction free spot. Breathe in through your nose and exhale through your mouth ten times. Imagine sitting somewhere relaxing like the beach of a forest, distancing yourself from the one that harmed you. Place the black obsidian on the heart chakra. Observe how it feels on the skin.

Honor the power of the stone. Imagine it expanding as it drains the anger and darkness from you. As the negative energy is absorbed, visualize the stone getting smaller again as it disappears completely with the dark energy locked away forever.
