One of the most ancient protection stones, turquoise is a sacred stone associated with “sky” energy, because of its color. It also brings sky energy to earth.
Prized in oriental as well as Native American culture, it is known as a multipurpose stone, excellent for promoting a sense of self-awareness and the ability to communicate honestly and from the heart. The stone encourages creative thinking, as many do, but turquoise has the power to help channel that creative energy in a productive and useful way.
Turquoise is considered a lucky stone, and facilitates the attraction of abundance and prosperity. It has a balancing and grounding influence. Properties include mental relaxation, stress reduction, confidence, attunement and physical well-being.
The blue-green turquoise is a stone sacred to many tribes around the world. Use it when you feel the need to call on your Spirit Guides because this is an important time in your life or a crossroad. It is helpful to restore communication with your higher self and stimulates your development on the spiritual level. If this is true for you now, it is time to take action to restore your faith. Life often appears meaningless when our faith in the unseen forces that surround and sustain us is weak.
Not only can it help us not to be distracted by our sorrows, turquoise can help restore our sense of humor so we can enjoy life’s gifts as well as its challenges, for we cannot have one without the other. Miracles can be seen everyday. Turquoise is a favorite stone among New Age healers who believe it has the power to energize the body and spirit, and balance right brain/left brain disparity.
Turquoise’s message: True communication is about more than words and turquoise can help achieve this. Carrying a piece of turquoise will help keep you centered, and wearing it improves all the senses, including the sixth sense.
