Tigers Eye is a powerful stone that aids harmony and balance and helps you to release fear and anxiety. It stimulates taking action, and helps you to make decisions with discernment and understanding, and unclouded by your emotions. Traditionally it was carried as an amulet against curses or ill-wishing, and is known to give you courage, self confidence and strength of will. It enhances creativity and is one of the stones that aid kundalini awakening and balances the brain.
Rose Quartz is the stone of unconditional love. One of the most important stones for Heart Chakra work, Rose Quartz opens the heart to all types of love - the love of self, love of family, love of friends, romantic love. Because it is a type of quartz, Rose Quartz does have high energy, but its vibe is also calming and soothing. The soothing energy of Rose Quartz fosters empathy, reconciliation, and forgiveness of others. Lowering stress and tension in the heart, Rose Quartz clears out anger, jealousy, and resentment of others, and allows healing of heart issues and dis-ease associated with holding on to such negative emotions.
On the emotional level, Rhodonite is one of the strongest crystals for clearing psychic wounds in the heart or mind. Rhodonite is the Stone of Forgiveness and it will help you to let go of any pain from a past relationship with an attitude of love and forgiveness. Rhodonite helps to balance the emotions and calm impatience. Rhodonite can enhance power in those who have truly altruistic intentions.
