Warm-hearted and vital, Leos are external optimists who like to live
every waking moment of their lives to the full.
The tale of the Lion signifies the personal journey we must take in
becoming our own person and embracing what sets us apart from the rest
of the world. What do we love about ourselves, what makes us special, and
how do we express and honor our one-of-a-kind spark? These are the
questions the Lion encourages us to answer as we develop a genuine
sense of self and discover outlets for authentic expression.
Leo teaches us that when we celebrate ourselves and are filled with
confidence, we can connect to the joyous light within our soul and inspire
others through our warmth and generosity.
However, we cannot accomplish this if we remain behind the scenes, as
Leo energy demands that we claim the leading role. No one call tell our
story better and when we claim our own truth we shine our brightest.

Before you begin the meditation, cleanse your crystal. Find a quiet place
for self-reflection. Get into a comfortable position sitting or lying down. If
you’re sitting, uncross your legs. Hold your Tiger’s Eye from the Zodiac
Leo Set in your hand.
Gently close your eyes.
Take a deep breath in through your nose and exhale through your mouth.
Again, inhale, exhale through your mouth.
One more time, take a deep long breath in through your nose and exhale
through your mouth.
Allow your breath to adjust to your natural rhythm.
Visualize the warm sun as it moves through the sky. Feel the vitality surge
through your body above your Crown travelling down to your Root chakra.
Tiger’s Eye combines the energy of the earth with that of the sun to bring
healing where it’s needed.
As you bask in the sun’s expanding rays, allow its pure warm energy to
reveal your true self.
Viewing yourself in your authentic light allows you to step back from any
distractions to gain the insight you need in this moment.
From our center we find our strength and connect to our true purpose.
Tiger’s Eye enhances your connection to your personal power and
strengthens your resolve.
You feel centered and calm with newfound wisdom and grace.
Continue as long as you wish or until the experience feels complete.
When you are ready, slowly bring yourself back to the present. Gently
open your eyes. Lay down your Tiger’s Eye stone. Wiggle your arms and
toes. Align with the bright, bold sun that you are and shine your light
