Obelisk is a tall, four-sided shaft of stone, usually tapered and monolithic, that rises to a pointed pyramidal top. Obelisks can be handheld, large sculptures, or tabletop altars. Regardless of form, these crystals work as energy channels that transfer the earth’s energy into our souls.
The word “obelisk” comes from the Greek word obeliskos, meaning a prong for roasting. It is a stone that is frequently monolithic, of a quadrangular base, placed upright, and ending with a pointed top. It is present in the squares of the most important cities around the world.
The obelisk, called TEJEN in the sacred language of the ancient Egyptians, was a term which was synonymous with “protection” or “defense.” The needle of stone had the function of perforating the clouds and dispersing negative forces that always threaten to accumulate in the form of visible or invisible storms, and was placed over the temple as a symbol of a petrified ray.
Modern uses of obelisks
Today, obelisks are still considered a container of divine knowledge; a deep-rooted wisdom passed down from generation to generation. The wisdom that each obelisk crystal carries is determined by the location from which the crystal was mined.
Using obelisk crystals grants you access to spiritual knowledge you wouldn’t have access to through tangible means. It is said that obelisks also allows access to the akashic records.
How to use an obelisk crystal
To use the obelisk to access lessons and divine guidance:
Center yourself and cleanse your surrounding energies.
Hold the obelisk in your left hand. Focus your attention on the crystal and sense the vibrations and frequency it emits.
Rub the surface of the crystal as soon as you sense a connection with its vibrations. Let its vibrations pass through your aura. Try to discern the message it is sending.
Close the session by marking your place in the spiritual history you’ve just explored. Switch the obelisk to your right hand. Rub the opposite surface of the crystal to signal completion of the ritual.
