THE TURQUOISE RAY IN CRYSTALS
When the turquoise ray manifests in crystal form it combines the properties of the crystal with the energy of this colour of expression.
Turquoise is between the heart and the throat centers and contains more Blue than Yellow. It is where the heart moves toward the Blue of the throat in order to communicate its message. Turquoise is the colour of emotion, of feeling, expressed through word, through silence, through thought, through all forms of communication. It has an association with teaching; with the feeling behind the words with are spoken. Turquoise is the colour of the inner teacher within ourselves. Turquoise has a calming effect and may be used to ease those people who find it difficult to air their heart.
Turquoise has a transdimensional quality. It connects us with the oceanic universal consciousness symbolized by the sea, enabling us to move from the conscious dimension into the unconscious one. The Dolphin is the most powerful symbol of the Turquoise energy. Their communication is wide, telepathic and very much based in the feeling. It is also the colour of the connection with other realms, such as those of the angels and the devas, and with beings from outer space. The colour Turquoise is associated with the sea and the ancient civilizations, particularly Atlantis and Lemuria. It is also found frequently among the ethnic cultures, in their pottery and in sand paintings. The gemstone Turquoise was recognized in Egyptian times and more recently, in the Native American cultures, as a powerfully healing stone. Turquoise (along with Magenta) is referred to as one of the New Age rays. It is a colour associated with Aquarius, the water bearer, the astrological sign of the new Aeon. Turquoise has only recently come to man's consciousness and represents a newly awakening chakra, just above and to the right of the heart.
Turquoise carries within it a reminder that everything is interconnected. We need to take responsibility for the quality of our thoughts as well as of our conscious communication; what we receive as well as what we project. (If we stop giving energy to gossip and bad news then it would have nothing to feed on).
