If you are determined to kick a harmful habit, or to turn your whole lifestyle around by embracing a new way of eating, exercising or behaving, tiger Iron will feed your strength and will and bring positive energies into your etheric body to help you on your way.
Feng Shui and Tiger Iron
Tiger Iron is closely aligned to the fire element in feng shui terms and utilizes the energies of enthusiasm, warmth, action, brightness and illumination. For this reason it is a good stone to place in the south of your home or room where it will enhance your standing in the eyes of both family and community. It is allied to the concepts of fame and reputation as well as the dynamics of successful sexual relationships.
Using Tiger Iron to Enhance Spiritual Awareness
In spiritual terms, Tiger Iron grounds the energy of the sun into the earth and brings dynamism and action to the user. It also grounds solar energy into the body by stimulating the lower chakras. The base chakra, the color of which is red, is responsible for protecting us materially and helping us to feel safe and secure in our physical needs. The sacral chakra, with its orange hue, is responsible for our sexuality, among other things, and governs the reproductive organs and the genito-urinary tract. Tiger Iron therefore brings confidence and alleviates misplaced feelings of shame in our attitudes towards sexual activity. The solar plexus, with its sunshine yellow color, is the powerhouse of the chakra system and, when in balance spiritually, allows the Chi or universal energy to flow freely through all of our bodily systems, both physical and etheric.
Tiger Iron will cleanse and balance these three lower chakras if used with intent during a meditation or healing session. It will also allow us to open up channels of communication to the fire elementals, the archangel Michael, who wields a fiery sword for our protection, and with your own solar angel.
Tiger Iron will help to harness the mighty power of the sun itself if you wish to draw it down into your body and mind.
