Tiger Eye, Hawk’s Eye, Pyrite, Lemurian Golden Opal
The current state of the world is one of extreme polarization. We see this truth played out each evening on every news channel. Even the most spiritually inclined find it difficult not to be drawn into this destructive tug-of-war between extremes. We were, therefore, deeply interested in creating a tool that would help to achieve a balanced state that would elevate one above the alienation and frenzy of polarization. The combination of stones we were led to use in our design offer a perfect environment in which one can find balance in a world being torn apart by difference. The main stone in the design is Tiger Eye, the premier stone of Balance in the mineral kingdom. Tiger Eye sharpens the intellect by opening the mind to embrace paradox, which, in our increasingly polarized political and social environments, may actually be a survival skill. Balancing polarities has become such an urgent necessity that we were led to add Pyrite to our design. Pyrite’s stimulation of the Solar Plexus can assist one in overcoming bad habits of communication that are fuelled by fear and anxiety. Fear and anxiety are the currency that keeps polarization going. Hawk’s Eye encourages needed emotional balance. The final element in the design was included to address our extreme isolation from anyone we consider ‘other.’ This has led us to demonize anyone who disagrees with us. Unless we are able to soften the impenetrable boundaries we’ve erected between ourselves, finding balance and creative solutions to our differences is unlikely. We included Golden Lemurian Opal to help with this critical necessity. Golden Lemurian Opal is one of the most powerful stones we’ve ever worked with for opening one to a more feeling-centered kind of awareness. To rise above polarization we must increase our receptivity to others and to our own spiritual natures. We must recognize that willingness is the most important quality of will.
