I think Tigers Eye was the first stone I actually worked with way back in 2013. I had gone through some major spiritual awakenings and I needed a little bit of psychic protection. I picked up some Obsidian, Onyx and Tigers Eye.
It was Tigers Eye that provided me with the most protective and safe energy. I slept with it for at least a year. What I didn’t realize was that while it was protecting me, it was waking and stirring my inner fire.
The Solar Plexus is the location of this inner fire.
It is the home of our will power, confidence, action and follow-through. We find what we desire in a healthy Sacral Chakra, and when the Solar Plexus Chakra is in balance we can act on that desire and manifest the life of our dreams.
It is all about using your internal fire to follow through, set goals and get shit done.
It’s also about understanding imbalances in the Solar Plexus and how they can lead to self-sabotage.

Tigers Eye radiates solar energy. It is deeply connected to the sun, which rules the Solar Plexus Chakra. Tigers Eye can be a powerful tool to use when making dramatic transformation through energy healing. Confidence, willpower, action and more.
This is truly the energy centre where you can make your dreams come true – but are you willing to put in the work? The Solar Plexus will not settle for anything less than a "hell yes", and Tigers Eye is ready to cheer you on, inspire you and light a fire under your booty.
Anyone can practice Reiki or Energy Healing. If you have found that you are experiencing an imbalance in the Solar Plexus Chakra, a simple way to begin to balance is by working with the energy already inside of you.
- Place Tigers Eye on your Solar Plexus
- Place your hand or hands over the Tigers Eye
- Begin to visualize energy radiating into your Solar Plexus
- See a yellow or white light filling the space under your hands and beginning to expand outward until it envelopes your entire body
- Rest in this cocoon of solar plexus energy last as feels good, listen to your intuition.
Lack of willpower shows up in so many different ways. Procrastination, lack of follow-through, inability to stand up for one's self, and not taking what you need in life.
Willpower comes down to confidence, and the Solar Plexus is the home of willpower.
Use Tigers Eye to give a jump-start to your willpower as you step into what you truly desire. Whether you want to step up and take action in your business, your fitness routine, yoga practice, or eating habits. Tigers Eye can provide the healthy inspiration you need to get your butt in gear, and it will do it without the hustle.
It’s all about the balance.
As with willpower, goals are born in the Solar Plexus. The desire comes from the Sacral Chakra, and the feeling of purpose and follows through lands here in the Solar Plexus Chakra as you begin to bring your desires into the physical realm. (Manifestation much?)
Tigers Eye will help support you with your goals through the willpower it encourages.
Self-care might be something for the Heart Chakra to deal with, but there can’t be any self-care if you don’t first accept and acknowledge your self-worth.
You are a Queen. You are a King.
Every single word you let cross your mind, or leave your lips leaves an imprint on your heart and on the energy you project into the universe. So change up the story.
Think of all the wonderful aspects for yourself. Think of how far you’ve come!
Tigers Eye will be your cheerleader, or better yet, it will inspire you to become your own cheerleader. Tigers Eye has got your back when it comes to self-worth, and what comes with self-worth? Confidence.
Confidence is key to your goals, desires, and purpose.
You. Have. Got. This. I Swear.
