Tigers Eye Meaning & Properties
The low, guttural growl that stills the forest and puts all creatures on alert.
The stealth, balance and utter stillness that speaks of supreme clarity of focus.
The majesty of un-apologized for power.
This is Big Cat energy.
This is the healing crystal, Tiger’s Eye.
Like the great cat for which its named, Tiger’s Eye has a fierceness that’s undeniable. In the wild Tigers show nearly ceaseless fortitude and willpower. These felines wait patiently for what they most want and need, then go after it vehemently. Tiger’s Eye crystal has all of this symbolism and even more.
Consider the value of such an energy matrix for your meditations. One of the challenges in meditating is staying focused. Our mind is accustom to doing many things at once. The Tiger’s Eye calms the temptation for distraction and maintains concentration. A quiet mind is one ready to listen to Guides and the Divine. As such, you can look to Tiger’s Eye as a bridging mechanism to those powerful and transformative Beings.
Tiger Eye stones have various colors that also add meaning. As you turn the stone in sunlight you’ll see hints of gold, red and blue. Red provides heart energy, gold is the Crown Chakra and the higher self and blue tames the Tiger a bit with its peaceful, spiritual quality. (Read all about Color Psychology, Symbolism and Meanings)

You have to do your fair share along with the crystal’s energies. During this process Tiger’s Eye helps keep your feet on Terra Firma so that you have a solid cornerstone for building something new.

Tigers Eye Name Etymology
Linguists feel that the word “Tiger” comes from either Latin or Greek terms that mean “to howl”, perhaps in reference to the tiger’s roar that has such an amazing effect on all those hearing it.
The “Eye” in Tiger’s Eye simply describes the visual impact of the stone, which often has circles that look like an eye. This appearance is why the ancients used it as an amulet for turning the “evil eye” and curses.
The tie to Tiger Spirit is said to also give you bravery in the face of even the most treacherous terrain.
