Gold Tiger Eye: Copyright © Karen Osborne 2012:
Embodied in the rich brown and lustrous golden bands of the Tiger Eye stone, is a graceful marriage of the energies of Mother Earth and Father Sky. Golden Tiger Eye carries both halves of the creation blueprint for our Universe, and is therefore, one of the best stones I know of for balancing and harmonizing the masculine and feminine aspects within our human selves.
Tiger Eye successfully grounds us into the nurturing, self-defining energies of the Earth plane while at the same time bringing us the vitalizing ‘can do’ energies of the Sun. It restores balance to the brain, heart and body by emitting a unified field of both masculine and feminine energy. It is a stone with much to offer at this time when masculine energies still tend to dominate our human experience.
Though we are living in a time that heralds a return of the feminine Light, I still find that most people I meet, including myself, are more actualized in the masculine principle. What I mean by that, is that I notice people are still very much in left-brain mode and that their lives are filled with linear action-oriented activities such as building, making, giving and doing for others. These are considered masculine traits. Most of us are very much ‘in our heads,’ constantly busy and always thinking ahead to the next project, activity or task. Expression of the feminine aspects, which include more passive and introspective traits such as conception, intuition, imagination, nurturing, receiving and ‘just being’ seem to take a back seat and remain underdeveloped in many people.
Tiger Eye can help us become better rounded and developed in both our masculine and feminine aspects. If you are working too much, it brings teachings of relaxation and rest. If you are doing too much for others, it will teach you how to allow and to receive. When you are too busy it will bring lessons of stillness and presence. In the case of being overly linear it encourages engagement with imagination and intuition.
Tiger Eye is a great stone for over achievers, and those who are inclined to be overly assertive or competitive. It brings the understanding that power does not always have to be demonstrated; that it can be achieved through inner strength and presence. At the same time, Tiger Eye greatly assists in the accomplishment of goals of all kinds and is a great aid to projects and business endeavors.
Tiger Eye encourages commitment and responsibility in relationships while enabling one to be comfortable with newness and change. As a stone of equity and fairness, it brings harmony to any relationship. Tiger Eye helps one to be aware of the needs of the other while keeping the balance of meeting one’s personal needs.
Tiger Eye integrates the hemispheres of the brain and can be very useful for healing mental dis-ease and personality disorders. It is a good emotional equalizer and can bring balance to all of the chakras, especially the root, sacral and throat. It is fortifying to the physical body in general, and specifically to the blood and endocrine systems. It is an excellent aid to bringing hormones and biochemistry into balance.
Ultimately, Tiger Eye keeps our feet firmly on the ground so that we can reach upward into the sunlit skies. What better stone to successfully integrate Spirit with matter?
