Crystal of the Month – Tiger’s Eye

tigers-eyeYou may never have seen one of the big cats stalk its prey, but you’ve probably seen its small cousins–the little tigers who grace our homes–in action. They are patient hunters, knowing when to wait and when to leap. This is one of the key characteristic of Tiger’s Eye, a brown-gold stone with rippling bands of light that remind us of a cat’s eyes.

In human terms the qualities of patience and timing relate to our ability to create what we want for our lives. The colour gold represents the ability to manifest; while brown corresponds to the energies of the earth. Thus, tiger’s eye can help us to translate our ideas into physical reality.

Specifically, this stone helps us to have more confidence in our ability to realize our dreams by assisting us in recognizing the inner resources we can use for accomplishment.

In meditation this stone is most commonly placed on the navel centre (whose colours are yellow and gold), but it can also be placed by the feet or at the base of the torso. This is especially helpful if you’re feeling drained or unfocused. You can also hold it for the purpose of focus and grounding.

This is also a wonderful stone to gaze at. Hold and move it, watching the shifting patterns of light. In so doing you may come to appreciate the message of tiger’s eye: that the physical plane has been designed as a playground where our spirits can materialize our dreams easily and joyfully as a cat changes the appearance of its eyes.
