Dictionary Terms Explained
- Adaptability, Order, Astral Planes
The penguin is one of the most interesting birds in nature, as despite having wings, they are unable to fly. However, this doesn’t stop them from living life to the full and, instead of flying, a penguin uses their wings to help them swim.
The penguins ability to adapt to its needs reminds us of the importance of adapting to our lives and the situations we find ourselves in. Penguins are renowned for the orderly fashion in which they operate, which can also teach us to be more organised and orderly in our own lives.
Water is sometimes regarded as being symbolic of the astral plane, so some people see the idea of the penguin being able to effortlessly leap from the water out onto its feet, and vice versa, as representative of changing and embracing the different astral planes.
- Protection, grounding, prophecy
The energy of obsidian is protective, guarding and secure, reminding us to protect ourselves against the harsh words or actions of others or from the stresses and strains of life. It's good to have around in a working environment where there may be stress. It can also be used as a tool to aid grounding, and for uniting body and spirit, bringing them into harmony and focus. Obsidian cuts through all that is superfluous and brings us right back to the truth of how we are and how the world around us truly is. It may promote deep soul healing and also help connect with past lives.
In addition to the above certain types of obsidian may bring other attributes:
* Black obsidian Pieces of polished black obsidian or obsidian spheres are often used for scrying (seeing things supernaturally within a medium, such as crystal, for divination of past, present or future).
* Snowflake obsidian has inclusions of a white mineral (phenocryst) which give the impression of snowflakes when polished. These snowflakes can be seen to represent aspects of your life on the backdrop of the great black void from which we are all said to have come. This symbolism can help us to see our life more clearly so we can change what we don't like and keep what we do. Calming and soothing.
* Mahogany obsidian contains reddy brown aspects (caused by iron). The symbolism here is taking the depth of our existence (the black void) and bringing it into our own human life (our charisma and fire). In this way we can create a connection with our true purpose and our life work on earth.
