Tiger's eye is such a special crystal—who can resist the stunning stripes, the natural sparkle, and the copper hues? The tiger's eye essence, handmade by Ava, can be used as described below to tame excess fire in one's personality. But we also recommend it to anyone who is simply drawn to the tiger energy or to this stone. Sometimes the subconscious guides us more clearly than any words could.
Fiery temper, mood swings, irritability; seeking to connect with the tiger animal spirit; a need for psychic protection.
Tiger's eye has balancing and centering properties; it tames the tiger within. For those who have a tendency to go to extremes, this essence can help them to find equilibrium in their emotional lives. It can help one embrace difference and paradox in situations and in other people, such as vast differences in opinion between family members or coworkers, and can help create harmony between people with different viewpoints, political or religious beliefs, or approaches to life. As a stone that teaches balance between polarities and the underlying unity behind apparent opposites, it is a great helper for use in families or relationships that are filled with discord (excess fire).
Ava and some other essence practitioners also use tiger's eye essence extensively for psychic protection from violent or evil forces. Some practitioners use it for protection from nightmares.
According to Robert Simmons, tiger's eye stimulates the root chakra and the solar plexus. It is a stone of vitality, practicality, and physical action.
Tiger's eye supports general vitality and can help to fortify the blood, strengthen the endocrine system, and bring one's hormones into balance.
