Deep Connection With Obsidian
Each candle I create holds a deep personal connection with my spirit, that goes without being said. But there is one candle in particular, and one crystal that I connect with above all: Rebirth, which contains Obsidian. This blend was actually my second creation, behind Harmony. Rebirth honors of the experience of death and thus allowing ourselves to begin again. All beings experience figurative deaths as we embark on our cyclical "fool's journey". For me, leaning into the idea that our life's seasonality is a natural and beautiful experience, even in the dark patches requires extensive grounding work. It's easy to get caught up in the one dimensional thought around our current circumstances, so connecting ourselves during death cycles is critical to not only endure the death, but rise in the Rebirth. Cue Obsidian!

"Black Obsidian is a very powerful and creative stone. It increases self-control. It forces facing up to one’s true self. Releases imbalances and negative energies. Black Obsidian is protective and provides support during change. It repels negativity and disperses unloving thoughts."
Obsidian is volcanic glass that forms naturally. Yes, you read that correctly. This crystal is formed from Volcanic energy. It comes from the rapid cooling of felsic lava. I find it ironic and cosmically biblical that the crystals whose properties align with grounding, clarity and warding off negativity are born through an explosion. Some may say it is created in death to serve us as we are reborn.
About the JNRG Rebirth Candle: This candle is poured over raw obsidian to cleanse as we transition from one phase to the next. The cycles of our life cause us to experience many deaths to find our higher purpose. With each burn we honor our old self, while manifesting growth and transformation to the next phase of our being.
