As silly as it may seem to someone who is unfamiliar with ancient healing, certain stones are said to have physical and emotional healing properties. This idea isn't limited to the Pagan religions; many Christians also believe in the powerful abilities of stones. I met a devote Christian lady who sold all sorts of amulets and believed that they had a power to heal and enhance your life.
Because of its strong focusing powers, Tiger's Eye is said to help with high blood pressure, stress, and increased stamina.
Metaphysical and Emotional Benefits
You need courage? Tiger's Eye is a very strong conductor of bravery. The Romans knew this, because they wore Tiger's Eye into battle.
This stone will also attract luck, keenly focus your mental abilites, and help repel any bad psychic vibes that try to harm you.
Through my research, I've read that Tiger's Eye is associated with Virgos, Pisces, Capricorns, Leos and to a lesser degree, Scorpios. I'm a Scorpio, and Tiger's Eye happens to be my favorite stone. Regardless of your zodiac sign, anyone can wear a Tiger's Eye. Just be aware it may bond better with some zodiac signs than others. If you are already a bold, lucky person, wearing Tiger's eye too often may upset the balance of your energies. Conversely, this stone can overwhelm a very shy, timid individual or someone who has personality disorders. For some, it may be a stone you only want to wear on special occasions, to boost your solar plexus or root chakras or for a extra shot of courage and focus.
Tiger's Eye works best with your root chakra and your solar plexus chakra.
The root chakra is associated with the color red and is located at the base of the spine. Tiger's Eye compliments the root chakra because it deals with prosperity, health, and grounding,
The solar plexus chakra is yellow, which is one of the main colors in Tiger's Eye. This stone enhances the solar plexus abilities dealing ego and strength.
Cleansing and Charging
When I first received my Tiger's Eye from ebay, I had a hard time wearing it. I noticed that when I wore the amulet, it made me very angry and anxious. However, I didn't want to give up on it; I heard that Earth has very strong cleansing abilities, so I buried it in the ground for about 5 days. This made a huge difference! My stone has finally "accepted" me and now I've bonded with it nicely!
Before you wear any stone, you should cleanse off any negative energy that might have been left from a previous owner or just from other people handling the stone. Usually a good rinse with spring or blessed water is enough, (note: be careful, some stones can be damaged by a water rinse. Also, use only cold water. Hot or warm water can crack any stone!) but sometimes the energy imprint is too strong for water alone. The strong element of Earth will soak up any stubborn negative residue and completely cleanse your stone.
You may notice after wearing your stone for a while it doesn't seem to empower you as much as it used to. This means you need to refocus its energy and recharge your stone. You can renew it's energy simply by letting it bask in the light of a full moon.
