As the snow finally begins to melt away in Colorado, more color will start popping up in the high country. Flowers will bloom, birds will share their song. Sunshine & bright colors will be plentiful. This is the perfect time of year to wear or carry a vibrantly colored stone.
Turquoise, with its vivid blue green color has been prized for thousands of years. Beads of turquoise have been discovered in Egyptian tombs dating back to 3,000 years ago. The best quality turquoise comes from the southwestern United States, and turquoise has also been found here in Colorado. Many legends surround the energetic power of turquoise. Some Native American tribes believed it could provide much needed rain, bring accuracy to their weapons, or protect them from evil spirits. Modern day healers believe that turquoise is a stone of truth, wholeness, & well being for the body.
When meditating, praying or concentrating with a piece of turquoise, it is helpful to recognize that all of the different parts of your being are what make you unique. Embrace these parts & be conscious that it is all part of your great journey. This will help facilitate the feeling of being whole with all parts working in harmony with one another.
Try carrying or wearing a piece of turquoise this summer and see if the harmony & color within you shines a little bit brighter!
