A couple of years ago, I was a very different person. While today there isn’t a day that I don’t wake up believing in myself, a couple of years ago I was filled with so much self-doubt that decision making and progress were only imaginary words in my reality. Needless to say, my self-confidence was also little to non-existent. I always longed to be strong enough to take matters into my own hands, to speak my mind freely, to be bold enough to take a step in a new direction.
Now that I look back on myself, I understand that at that point in time, I was making excuses, day in and day out, keeping myself in my little comfort zone. Eventually, I realized that I had to make a change if I ever wanted to be happy. And so my journey began. With that one conscious thought and decision to make my life better, and seek the change that I needed, I stepped outside of my comfort zone, and into the unknown to seek my inner joy.
I tried many things, and as I was experimenting with different tools and methods, I stumbled on crystal healing. Each crystal I have worked with has helped me work on a different part of myself, and I am so grateful to have discovered this beautiful practice. As I tried different crystals and tried to enhance my well-being with them, I finally picked up Tiger’s Eye, the crystal that helped me stir through the winds of change, and endure the catharsis that happened to me.
Besides being one of my dearest, and favored Solar Plexus chakra stones, Tiger’s Eye has helped me not only find my inner power but also to embrace it. That’s why, today I am sharing with you the benefits of the invigorating Tiger’s Eye, and everything you need to know about it!
What is Tiger’s Eye?
The powerful, uplifting Tiger’s Eye is a common crystal that in nature is found in clusters and large chunks. Its beautiful shades of yellow to deep brown, create mesmerizing patterns, often reminiscent of cat’s or tiger’s eyes. Tiger Eye can be found everywhere around the world, and today it’s very common to acquire. In the past, Tiger Eye has been used many times through the centuries of human evolution. It has even been found in Egyptian pyramids! Through the years, it has been used as a crystal to promote integrity, justice, and logic.
What is the spiritual meaning of the Tiger Eye?
Today, Tiger Eye is one of the most commonly used crystals in crystal healing. Many people use it to attract abundance and prosperity, however, Tiger’s Eye has many other uses besides acquiring wealth! If Tigers Eye caught your eye, then you might be in need of getting in touch with your personal power, or perhaps your Solar Plexus chakra needs healing.
In a spiritual sense, Tiger Eye has energy frequencies that help you not only to manifest and attract abundance but also to always choose the right direction in life. What I love most about Tiger Eye is that it helps you in realizing that no matter the tide, every journey can be a joyful adventure if you are brave enough.
The Benefits Of Tiger Eye
When I started to work with Tiger Eye, I noticed that my perseverance immediately gained a huge boost. I noticed that for a lot of the tasks I would dread doing, especially if they were more demanding, my perception and emotions changed. What was once dread, turned into – ‘I’d love a challenge’, and I’d dive into each and every task, filling my heart with content as I finished every single one of them.
I also gained a lot of awareness about my inner power and my inner strength. After the very first meditation with Tiger Eye, I felt energy brimming in my chest, untapped, just waiting there to be used, unnoticed for years. It felt like the energy I tapped into when I tried my hardest to win my first elementary school race when I tried so hard to jump higher in the jumping castle than my cousins, the energy that made me smile and believe in myself as a child. As I started to explore this energy and work with Tiger Eye daily, I noticed that there was so much more to myself than I could ever imagine. Through each meditation, I grew and bloomed into a self-confident, self-actualized young woman, filled with joy and fulfillment, unafraid to explore life. In a way, the work with Tiger Eye brought me home, to the shores of myself. I am so grateful and happy to have discovered Tiger Eye because the benefits of working with it are endless:
Balances the Solar Plexus Chakra
Tiger Eye is a crystal that is well-known for its ability to connect and balance the Solar Plexus Chakra. The Solar Plexus Chakra is the energy center in your body where your inner will and personal power reside. The Solar Plexus is more or less your center of self-confidence, it’s the place from which your willpower, determination, and motivation come from. When you are struggling with disbalance in the Solar Plexus chakra, you might also notice that you don’t have the motivation to work on your goals, you find yourself procrastinating more often, or your self-confidence and belief in yourself are diminished. When the Solar Plexus Chakra is properly working and balanced, you will stand tall, in your inner power, unafraid to make bold decisions that will bring a better life for you and your loved ones.
Any change is difficult, especially if you are set in your old ways. However, creating a better life for yourself takes courage, to take even the smallest first step in a new direction before you push forward. Meditating with a Natural Tiger Eye Om Mala can help you to unblock your Solar Plexus Chakra, and little by little manifest the change you want to see in your life. If you want the power of Tiger's Eye without wearing a piece made solely from it, other great options are the Natural Obsidian Tiger Eye Mala or the Strength and Good Fortune Bracelet
Helps To Find Your Direction In Life
When I started to work with Tigers Eye, my life took a strange turn – for the better. In fact, it took a lot of those turns. After every session with Tiger Eye, I felt more powerful, more joyful, and more rooted in my inner power and strength. As I felt more and more comfortable with my presence, and in my own skin, I felt bolder to start new projects, explore new hobbies, and slowly but surely get out of my comfort zone. A lot of the time, I would get offers or strange ads, that in the past I would find amusing, yet pass on them simply because they were so out of my comfort zone, yet now, I freely signed up for them and they changed my life completely for the better. In a way, Tigers Eye helped me free myself, and find new, better directions in life.
Enhances Decision Making
At moments it seemed like I made a bad decision, only to later find out that everything worked out better than expected. Much better in fact. Over the years as I reflected on my past behavior I realized that these ‘bad decisions’ weren’t actually bad, but that I was so set in my old self-destructive patterns that I simply couldn’t tell apart good from the bad. Tiger Eye gave me a strange, strong, and powerful inner presence, that made me know and feel that I was always making decisions from a place from peace. And when you are so present and aware of your inner power, when you make decisions from a place of peace – you simply know that they are the right decisions, no matter how they might seem at that moment.
Furthermore, I also noticed that as I worked with Tiger Eye, my logic improved, it was much easier to remain focused and objective, and come to the right decision and conclusion. Strangely, I realized that everything seemed to connect, and I was finally able to see these connections and make better decisions based on them. It felt like a whole new world opened in front of me, a world of endless opportunities.
