This week’s card comes from the beautiful deck “The Secret Language of COLOR Cards” by Inna Segal. In colour psychology, turquoise relates to open communication, clarity and emotional balance. This wonderful, sunny, happy, bubbly shade of sun-warmed water, and clear skies reminds us to to see the lighter side of life, ourselves and others. We’re asked to awaken our empathy so that we can communicate clearly and experience that emotional well-being.
Empathy is simply being able to put yourself in someone else’s shoes, to see their point of view, to allow yourself to understand them without judgement. Suspending judgement isn’t always easy, but this week it can really help you relate to other people and to yourself. See yourself in others, find ways to inspire, encourage and help others this week. Let yourself be in touch with your power of empathy, compassion and understanding as you deal with the people around you this week. Who is the first person who comes to mind when you think of the word “Empathy”? Who could use more empathy and understanding from others right now? What is one way that you could help or inspire someone else this week?
This card can also be a fun reminder to add a little colour to your life! Maybe some turquoise might fit into your wardrobe, decorations, computer desktop, or artwork this week. Turquoise is an awesome shade that makes us feel optimistic, happy and free. Turquoise jewellery is said to be healing and the Turks used turquoise as amulets against harm and for good luck. Turquoise has the expansive growth and “heart” vibration of green combined with the flowing and communicative quality of blue and it helps us express and manifest our wishes and desires.
Have a great week!
About this deck: The Secret Language of Colors by Inna Segal, Published by Blue Angel Gallery – is a 45 deck card and guide book about using colours for visualisation and more. To be honest, I haven’t yet read the book and got the deck because I do a lot of work with colours with clients and in my artwork. Some of the cards are gorgeous, vibrant photographs and some seem to be a little murky. They are printed on very thin cardstock and tend to stick together (hence the “hopper”). It might be good deck for beginner “colour therapy” or to inspire children in their artwork.
