Turquoise is called the Lord of the (semi)precious stones. The colours vary from apple green to deep sky blue. This stone was used by the original inhabitants of America, the Paleo-Americans, for visions and to make contact with the spiritual dimensions. Turquoise is believed to offer consolation and well-being. Furthermore, the stone is believed to have a vitalising effect. Lastly, it purportedly protects against negative radiation or influences from outside.
What are Chakras?
Chakra is Sanskrit for ‘wheel’ and means ‘wheel of energy’. It is believed that they are the energy centers in your body. Most traditions adhere to seven chakras, but there is also mention of eight or nine chakras. It is believed that all the chakras together form a system, which means that they all affect each other and that they work together. Purportedly, every chakra has its own specific qualities and functions. The chakras are different kinds of consciousness.
Chakras are the different areas in your life. It is believed that the first chakra represents survival and the second creativity. Allegedly, the third is your feeling of self-worth and the fourth tells you something about love. It is believed that chakra five is your communication, the sixth provides you with insight and the seventh connects you to the holy. Chakras can be felt in your body and your behaviour tells a lot about them. In order to influence chakras, or to get to know them, special colours, symbols and gemstones are used.
