Athames are most frequently associated with the Wiccan practice, though the term “athame” is of uncertain origin. Many spiritual practitioners outside of Wicca happily work with this magical tool to direct energy, making it a vitally important part of their rituals and ceremonies.
Golden Sheen Obsidian is the perfect tool for shadow integration. Our shadow is the collective part of us that we repress – those behaviors, patterns, and tendencies that take us toward the darkness, and we all have them. Shadow work helps you bring all parts of yourself into the light for more healing and wholeness. Golden sheen obsidian also powerfully cleanses the auric field and transmutes lower vibrations into higher frequencies. It activates the Earth Star and Root Chakra for stability, grounding, and protection.
Place this athame on your altar for grounding and protection, or keep it close in meditation to explore and integrate your shadow. Hold it before and after ritual to open and close sacred circle. However you choose to work with yours, may it serve you well.
