Energetic and healing properties of these high grade Golden Tiger Eye and Black Jasper semi precious gemstone meditation beads
Golden Tiger Eye
Golden Tiger Eye is found in the United States, Mexico, India, Australia, and South Africa. Golden Tiger Eye rebalances the body on all levels. In Chinese medicine, it restores harmony between the yin and yang energies, and energetically rebalances the brain’s hemispheres. Golden Tiger Eye corresponds to the Third Eye or Ajna Chakra. Golden Tiger Eye teaches integrity and right use of power. If you have misused, abused, or failed to take hold of your power in the past, this stone shows you how to let power flow through you for the good of all. If you are “spaced out” and uncommitted, or overly proud and willful – Golden Tiger Eye helps you develop your personal will assertively but sensitively. If you find it difficult to remain optimistic, particularly when things seem to be going well, Golden Tiger Eye helps your trust in the future and set realistic goals for yourself. This stone balances your needs with others’ and promotes creative compromise. The energetic powers inherent within this stone made it an excellent choice to be part of the Maha Shiva Meditation Beads Collection.
The Jaspers are found worldwide, and are known for giving a powerful boost of energy, strength, stamina, and spiritual grounding. Jasper is also known as the “supreme nurturer”. The strong spiritual grounding vibration resonates within the lower three chakras – the root (Muladhara), the sacral (Svadhisthanna), and the solar plexus (Manipura). This greatly helps to align the lower three chakras, providing a very strong base support. One cannot hope to evolve spiritually into the higher, more subtle chakras without a strong foundation in which to build upon. Jasper is a stone of courage and protection. It encourages self-honesty. If there has been selfishness, Jasper’s vibration encourages harmony when working with others. Black Jasper compliments Golden Tiger Eye quite beautifully, and was therefore the natural choice as an integral component of the Maha Shiva Meditation Beads Collection.
Shiva as Nataraj
In his upper right hand, Shiva holds the damaru, a small hand drum shaped like an hourglass, that made the first sound that stirred all of creation into being. The drum beats themselves mark the passage of time. In his upper left hand Shiva holds the agni, or fire that will destroy the universe, all that the damaru drummed into existence. These opposing forces demonstrate the creative and destructive forces. With his lower right hand, he offers a gesture of blessing and fearlessness for those traveling the path of righteousness. Shiva’s lower left hand stretches diagonally and points to his raised left foot signifying grace and liberation through meditation, spiritual practice, dharma, and mastery over our base traits, appetites, and obsessions. This is the refuge for troubled souls. Shiva’s right foot tramples the tiny demon Apasmara, the embodiment of ignorance; being so caught up in the illusions of the material world, completely and utterly unaware of one’s own predicament. By standing upon the demon, Shiva demonstrates victory over ignorance. Shiva’s hair, the long dreadlocks of a yogi have come loose during this dance, and wildly span the distance of the cosmos – crashing into the heavenly bodies and knocking them off course or destroying them completely. The snake encircling Shiva’s waist represents the Kundalini Shakti, or Divine force that resides within everything. The face of Shiva remains calm, serene and stoic, representing neutrality and being in perfect balance.
Maha is the Sanskrit word for Great. Shiva (spelled Siva in Sanskrit) is the Lord of Auspiciousness, and represents the universal powers and laws of creation, preservation, and destruction. This is something that occurs at the cellular level within the physical body, a constant minuscule cycle of creation, preservation, and destruction. And, this occurs on a massive scale – with the birth, preservation, and destruction of stars, suns, planets, and galaxies. In this way, the slate is continuously wiped clean, so that rebirth and renewal can occur. From the microcosm, to the macrocosm.
Shiva represents the Divine Masculine pole of pure, unmanifested consciousness. This is the “web” that holds all of manifested creation – all things of name and form (known as Shakti or the Divine Feminine aspect).
Shiva as Creator, Preserver, Destructor
The statues to the left and below are the form of Shiva known as Nataraj, and effectively demonstrates Shiva’s role as the creator, the preserver, and the destroyer of the universe in a never-ending cycle of life and death. Here Shiva is captured frozen in the moment of his dance within the cosmic circle of fire. This ring of fire that surrounds Shiva is the encapsulated cosmos of mass, time, and space who’s endless cycle of destruction and renewal moves to the beat of Shiva’s drum and steps. It represents the endless births, deaths, and rebirths that the soul experiences before salvation is attained.
