Healing Stones and Crystals, Their Powers and Properties: Rose Quartz, Tigers Eye and Turquoise
They say that crystals have healing powers and that is certainly true. Crystals can be bought cheaply on Amazon or in crystal shops. Crystals are amazing and come in a variety of colours. There are many varieties, some are hard to find and others are easier to find. Today, I will be focusing on three of the most common semi-precious stones you can find:
- Rose Quartz
- Tigers Eye
Each crystal has a special power. For example, Tigers Eye protects you from bad omens or Turquoise protects you from air pollution and pollution in the environment. The good thing is that these crystals can be kept in your pocket or worn as jewellery so that crystals powers can be used in the body. Just to let you know, this is not a scam and is used by crystal healers all over the world. Crystal healing is an art and you can take part in it too. Even if you are not interested in using the crystals for healing, you can still use them for jewellery or as gifts and truly are beautiful. You will learn about their healing powers, looks, where to buy and how to use them in crystal healing.
The first we are going to look at today is Tiger's Eye. It can be bought smooth and tumbled such as the one to the right or rough, straight from the Earth. Personally, I prefer the tumbled version as it is smoother and more beautiful but that decision is entirely up to you. It is banded and is brown to gold in colour. It is shiny and almost imitates that of a real tiger's eye.
Properties: Tiger's Eye helps with treating the eyes and is helpful for healing broken bones. It helps you differentiate from what you want and what you really need. If you find that you are a compulsive buyer and you cannot resist buying things that you don't really need, bring a Tiger's Eye with you in the shop in your pocket. Tigers Eye helps you feel good in your own skin and helps with depression and low-self esteem. It balances yin and yang to help you lift your mood when feeling down. It helps you to achieve the goals that you want. This stone is very powerful and must be used for short-bursts. If you feel attacked emotionally by other people, Tiger's Eye will help block out those thought out of your mind and helps you feel stronger. It helps you to seek clarity in your life and how to structure you life again. It helps you to concentrate during tough situations and gives clarity, when you seek it. Overall, Tiger's Eye helps you with your mental and emotional health and spirit.
Other forms of Tiger's Eye include Blue Tiger's Eye which dissolves frustration or Red Tiger's Eye which increases motivation.
How To Use: Experts suggest wearing a tumbled, Tiger's Eye as a pendant on your chest. Or, you can keep a Tiger's Eye in your pocket now and again when feeling in need of an emotional boost.
