The Color Turquoise
“She would be half a planet away, floating in a turquoise sea,
dancing by moonlight to flamenco guitar.”
― Janet Fitch, White Oleander
Turquoise is a blend of green and blue. It is so named because the Turks were fond of the color and decorated many of their buildings with turquoise ceramic glazed tiles.
Turquoise has the calming, expansive nature of green and the cool, quiet flow of blue. It can bring to mind a particular quality in the sky before or after sunset, a calm, warm sea, a beautiful lagoon, a pure mountain stream or distant hills in the mellow light of late summer
Turquoise is the color of the deep subconscious. Since the lungs vibrate in the green range, turquoise also belongs to the lungs, especially to the higher vibration of the lungs, which is spirituality, creativity, intuition, imagination, and the synchronistic quality of bring “in tune” with nature, with oneself, with “the flow.” The process of psychic opening is assisted with the color turquoise, as well as violet, and wearing turquoise around the neck is good for the voice, expression, creativity, since the root urge of creativity is to express.
This is a color that recharges our spirits during times of mental stress and tiredness, alleviating feelings of loneliness. You only have to focus on the color turquoise, whether on a wall or clothing and you feel instant calm and gentle invigoration, ready to face the world again!
It is a great color to have around you, particularly in an emergency, as it helps with clear thinking and decision-making. It assists in the development of organizational and management skills. It influences rather than preaching and demanding.
This is a good color to aid concentration and clarity of thought for public speakers as it calms the nervous system, gives control over speech and expression, and builds confidence. Print your speech notes on turquoise and every time you glance down you will feel the effects of the color.
It heightens levels of creativity and sensitivity; it is good at multi-tasking, becoming bored if forced to focus on one thing only. Sometimes thinking can become scattered if surrounded by too much of this balancing color.
Turquoise’s essence is clear, fresh, focused, youthful, imaginative, transformational, clean, sensitive, changing, rarefied, new, and victorious. Turquoise encourages inner healing through its ability to enhance empathy and caring. It heightens our intuitive ability and opens the door to spiritual growth. It is the color of the evolved soul. Turquoise encourages clarity in thoughts, feelings, and communication.
