Tiger Eye stimulates the first through third chakras. It supports physical vitality and energy, and it facilitates cell respiration and metabolism. Tiger’s Eye energy aids in maintaining balance between extremes. This can be the extreme of one’s own light and dark sides, one’s humanity and spirit, or the extreme emotional states of joy and sorrow.
Tiger Eye assists one in moving out of the world of duality – of right and wrong, good and bad, dark and light – and into a realm where all polarities are expressions of the single Source. Tiger Eye allows one to make choices based upon discernment, not judgment, in accordance with one’s higher guidance.

Tiger Eye combined with owl combines the metaphysical properties of the stone with the spirit of the animal. The owl sees in the dark: as a spirit animal, the owl guides you to see beyond the veil of deception and illusion; it helps see what’s kept hidden. It also symbolizes the ability to cut through illusions and see the real meaning of someone’s action or state of mind.
