In The Unknown Mother, Wrenne, the central character, loses her voice. After helping her discover the root cause of her vocal crisis, Matrina gifts Wrenne with a beautiful Navajo turquoise necklace. So, why that? Why not a pearl necklace or diamond broach?
Every gemstone has its own vibrational frequency and healing properties. Turquoise is one of several 5th chakra or throat center stones. It helps to open and protect our expressive center. In fact, when given as a gift, as is the case in The Unknown Mother, turquoise is believed to bring the wearer protection from negative outside influences. So in gifting Wrenne with her necklace, Matrina is actually bestowing a powerful amulet on her student.
Turquoise is also said to take on the characteristics of the owner. So this necklace will not only carry the refined level of consciousness from its previous owner, Matrina, but it will also program itself in its service to Wrenne ensuring her ability to communicate her unique message authentically, cleanly, and completely. Furthermore, it will help her control her physical speech, quelling nerves and supporting the vocal apparatus.
In addition, turquoise brings the wearer equilibrium, calms the nervous system, builds one’s confidence, and clears self-esteem issues. These are all things Wrenne needs as she relearns to use her voice in this world.
There are many additional benefits to wearing turquoise including body detoxification and the lifting of depression.
And as for why the gift is a necklace and not something else entirely? A necklace rests right on the back of the neck and, depending on length, rests somewhere between the throat and heart center to the front. It offers 360 degrees of protection to the 5th chakra and therefore not only connects our speech to our heart, but encircles it with protection.
A turquoise necklace…the perfect 5th chakra power object.
