It’s okay. I ran today. That’s what I need to share with you guys. It’s tough to convince yourself after weeks (possibly months…whoops!) of not running that it’s a good idea again. I had this moment sitting at my desk that I just knew I needed to get outside. My gear was in my car so I headed to my first choice trail. I always carry pepper spray on the paths and don’t wear headphones. I have more control over my thoughts without music blaring in my ears and I like to be aware of my surroundings. It was just 2 miles but I felt alive and accomplished afterward. Something that helps me with motivation and protection on a regular basis is tigers eye. So….
I’m back with some crystal clarity.
Tigers Eye has been one of my faves when I was little and had a rock collection. There are a few types but I’m mostly referring to the most common today Golden Tigers Eye. It’s goldish brown and has a stripe running through it that looks like the “eye of the tiger.” It’s mystical. That stripe seems to move with the light.
I wear this bracelet probably 5-7 days a week. My mom made if for me and I love the energy infused in it. It’s a little reminder I’m strong and protected everytime I see or feel it.I thought it was a good choice to highlight this stone in October because this month is about stepping into your greatness and getting clear on your true desires.

Here’s more insight from Energy Muse.
Use Tiger’s Eye healing properties to focus on your prey, form your strategy of attack, and wait for the perfect moment to pounce. Tigers might be the largest feline in the world, but they still allow lions to be kings of the jungle. Channeling a powerful medicine, Tiger’s Eye crystal healing properties teaches us to live with integrity by encouraging the balance of power. Instead of competing with others to stay on top, Tiger’s Eye allows us to climb that career mountain and aim for the stars on our own terms.
This stone is straight up fierce and I need a little of that in my life. I didn’t realize until doing some research for this post how closely the stone’s name is tied to the animal. I have gained an even greater appreciation for it now. Tigers are so mysterious and beautiful, stalking their prey, waiting for the perfect moment to pounce. They’re rare and terrifying and captivating. Now, you don’t have to “believe” in crystal healing to get something out if this. Maybe you want some new style ideas. I picked a few tigers eye pieces that inspire me.
