Tiger Eye is a collar stone of vitality, practicality and physical action. It stimulates the root chakra and the solar plexus, assisting one in taking effective actions in response to the needs and challenges of physical life and remaining grounded, calm and centred, regardless of the outer or inner situation.

 

Tiger Eye is a stone of mental clarity. It activates and whets the intellect, sharpening the sword of logic. It also opens the mind to embracing paradox, enabling one to simultaneously hold contradictory ideas in a non-judgmental acceptance that does not try to ‘solve’ the conflict by favouring one.

 

Tiger Eye energizes the body to accomplish the imperatives of the will. When one needs to persevere through extended time, hard effort and entangling difficulties, wearing or carrying Tiger eye can lend one the strength to overcome fatigue or discouragement.

 

As a stone of balance, Tiger Eye works as it does with paradox. It allows one to find the harmonious centre between all types of polarities. It helps one to see both side in disagreements. It is an excellent stone for professional mediators. Those going through difficult negotiations such as those in divorce or custody matters are encouraged to bring along a Tiger eye. One’s own ability and willingness to find common ground with the other will often inspire a similar response.

 

It supports physical vitality and energy, and it facilitates cell respiration and metabolism. Tiger Eye’s energy aids in maintaining balance between extremes.

 

Tiger Eye assists one in moving out of the world of duality – of right and wrong, good and bad, dark and light – and into a realm where all polarities are expressions of the single Source. Tiger Eye allows one to make choices based upon discernment, not judgment, in accordance with one’s higher guidance.

 

Spiritual

Tiger Eye teaches balance between polarities and the underlying unity behind apparent opposites. It assists in balancing the physical with the spiritual.

 

Emotional

Tiger Eye helps those who tend to go to extremes find equilibrium in their emotional lives. It can help create harmony between people with different viewpoints, religious beliefs or approaches to life. It is an excellent ally in bringing harmony to families and relationships where differences of opinions or expression are causing discord.

 

Physical

Tiger Eye is a blood fortifier, supporting general vitality. It is strengthening to the endocrine system and assists in bringing one’s hormones and biochemistry into balance.

 

Affirmation

I act with confidence, clarity, balance, fairness, enthusiasm and strength.
