I was inspired today by pulling the Tiger Eye Crystal Ally Card. It’s all about balance and strength. Most tiger eye is found in South Africa. It’s composed of quartz and asbestos, but not to worry – it won’t hurt you. Tiger eye naturally comes in brown and blue (Hawk’s Eye) with black striations. Tiger eye is also sometimes heated to color it red.
I have found the more balance I have, in every sense of the word, the more strength I have. And conversely, the more strength I have, the more I feel in balance. How do we develop strength and balance? Here are two basic, fundamental ways I have found to successfully keep myself in balance.
Physical core strength and flexibility gives you balance – keeps your back strong, keeps you from falling, makes you more coordinated, feels empowering. Whether you develop it through a gym class, yoga, or a sport, core strength and flexibility are essential elements in balance. I see this as representing the physical earth energies.
Connection with Spirit is a strength that gives you emotional balance – keeps you from totally losing it or being neurotic, provides for meaningful relationships, fulfilling life, feels empowering. To know that “the only source of my supply is the Spirit of God within,” is the strongest place to operate from. If you’re buff but lack connection with Spirit, how balanced can you be? Conversely, if you’re very spiritual, but neglect the body, how can you be truly balanced? If you can work on both physical and emotional strength, I’d say you’ve got it made.
For a quick Spirit connect: imagine a white light shooting down from the heavens and straight through your body. It enters the crown chakra traveling down through the rest of the chakras, into the earth, down through all the layers, ricocheting off the core and all the way back up in a continuous circuit. You are connected to Spirit and Earth. You are charged like a battery with the most powerful energy in the Universe: “The only source of my supply is the Spirit of God within.” What exercises or affirmations do you do to keep yourself in emotional balance?
When I work on my physical body, it reminds me of the vessel I’ve been given to carry my Spirit. I am grateful I can take care of it and keep it in good shape. The physicality of the workout grounds the “higher energetic systems….” To me, people who don’t work on both their physical core strength and their spiritual strength are missing essential core elements in the complete gift of life. Things seem to flow better when we’re in balance. Tiger eye is here to help facilitate this.
We have tiger eye available in tumbled stones, eggs, spheres, carvings, gem trees and jewelry.
