Turquoise – A Great Stone For Healers and Empaths

“A turquoise given by a loving hand carries with it happiness and good fortune.” ~ Arabic proverb

 

Last week I made a simple turquoise and rose quartz necklace for a friend, and it has been charging up in one of my amethyst caves ever since. I’ll give it to her today – a gift to thank her for all her help as my acupuncturist’s assistant. Her caring and skill have helped me through some difficult days.

I chose turquoise because it is such a supportive stone for healers and empaths. I also added a small rose quartz for love and nurture – replenishing the energy that is so lovingly given out to others. Turquoise is a wonderful crystal. It shields the wearer energetically, and helps to process and let go of emotions that are generated or picked up during work with others. It is very protective of the heart chakra, and clears grief, guilt and trauma.

The emotions of grief, guilt and trauma can move deep into the body. They sit in our throats, our lungs, our hearts, our bellies. It can be our own feelings, or the energies we shift form other people and then take on as our own. Unexpressed, these trapped emotions weaken our immune function, and our digestion. They affect our physical organs, making them more prone to illness and, over time, dis-ease.

Holding grief, guilt and trauma within our bodies is a place that many intuitive, empathic and deeply caring people find ourselves. To love and to care is also to expose ourselves to hurt and to loss. Loving and caring deeply is risky, because when you live in that open-hearted state, love goes hand in hand with suffering. Still, I would advocate that you love anyway. That you care anyway.

One of your greatest gifts is that you care. One of your greatest gifts is that you can live heart-opened. Don’t change that. Just learn to manage it better.

Turquoise, worn on the centre line of the body, is a beautiful crystal for supporting healers in all modalities. Maybe you’d benefit from wearing one too!

Lots of love to you, Nicole xoxo

And the Winner of the Healing Necklace is…

To find the winner of this beautiful healing necklace, I put all of the names into my singing bowl. And then I prayed for the Highest Good and I drew out the lucky winner.

This is whose name I drew:

Leisa Zoeller – congratulations! <3

On closer examination, however, I realised that a second name was stuck behind Leisa’s.

Barbara, with a sunflower blooming at the end of your name! It seems that the Universe feels you need some extra care and support right now, too.

I don’t have a second ‘everyone bead’ but I do have a solution. Here is the mala I made for my Beginners Channelling group. It’s the bead string to the right of the healing necklace. The heart at the end of that mala is my keeper – the bead where I start and finish. The place where I pray for myself and the world. Twice a day for a month, this keeper bead is being infused with prayer, energy, love and positive intent. It is for healing what has taught us and broken us, and for opening us to our highest potential. It is a bead filled with love and care.

I shall turn it into a necklace for you, after our retreat is done.

I’ll be in touch with both of you soon. Once again, congratulations, and thank you to all of my beautiful readers and supporters.

I hold you in my heart with much love, Nicole <3 xoxo
