Tiger's Eye

Tiger's Eye

What a week … who knew that having so little money could be the reason everyone calls you two or three times a day. The bank is especially fond of calling me to remind me how far my account is in the negative. Don’t get me wrong I have collapsed into a heap once or twice and had a good cry and felt very insignificant. But the good news is that these have been brief moments of uncertainty. I’ll get back to how I seem to have overcome these emotional outbursts.

At the start of this week, I popped in to see my friend, Sarah, you know the “spiritual” one. Well she presented me with a gift, my first crystal, a Tiger’s Eye Wand. It is gorgeous. As soon as I saw it, I had an urge to just hold it. She showed me how to cleanse and energize it.

If you aren’t sure how to do this: Allow your crystal to sit under cool running tap water for 10-20 minutes. If you are near to a natural running river, stones and crystals can be placed in an open mesh bag and left for a short time in the natural running water.

I have carried my Tiger’s Eye with me every day and I have to admit that it has made a difference.

I am more positive, even with the banks calling 2/3 times a day. I can see and feel a change coming, I know it will be for the better.

The first day I had it in my pocket, I found a wallet outside our local Starbucks. I found the owner’s business card in it and gave him a call, he was so relieved to have it returned to him, that he insisted I take a $50 reward. Little did he know, how desperately I needed that money for food this week.

On the third day, I had a job interview, and within hours of the interview I got a call to say I got the job. The relief that rushed through me was palpable.

After seeing how powerful the Tiger’s Eye has been in my life so far, I am keen to look more into the healing nature of other crystals. I know what those of you who are sceptical are thinking, but truly I feel different since I started to carry it (to be honest I am the biggest sceptic BUT I am opening my heart and mind to new and exciting things).

Oh, I almost forgot to tell you about my meditation challenge … I did it, I meditated everyday sometimes twice a day. I won’t lie the first few times were hard, my mind kept wandering to housework and my grocery list, but once I worked out how to just clear my mind and focus just on my breathing, I felt the effects of the meditation. The sense of calm that I get from just ten minutes of meditation is profound.


Did I mention that the job I got is a receptionist at a large yoga studio? I start next week, they want me to do some courses to get up to speed. I am a bit nervous that they will ask me to take part in a class, while I love yoga, I have not yet mastered the art of holding any position for any length of time and I still look like an uncoordinated elephant doing it …


Wish me luck for next week.

Please continue with me on my journey of peace and fulfilment.

Wishing you light and love
