Grey is the color of psychological neutrality, as such it is a color that helps us maintain our balance.
This is the color of classic ocean tumbled Granite, made out of quartz and feldspar, it combines the powers of water and earth, helping us find balance between emotions and practicality.
Teal combines the calming properties of blue and green. It is a revitalizing and rejuvenating colour that represents open communication and clarity of thought.

Gemstones for color therapy with hues of teal include Amazonite which helps grounding and personal expression. Aquamarine, a great assistant in expressing and understanding universal truths, and of course Turquoise a highly balancing stone when it come to emotional expression.

Symbols to guide your practice
Geometric mosaics are one of the oldest art forms used to decorate houses and temples with intricate designs originating in Mesopotamia in the 3rd millennium bc. They hold to their core, the concept of tessellation, filling a plane with geometrical shapes that allow no gaps or overlaps. They have given rise to games of recreational mathematics and jigsaws, and their geometry has traditionally been a conversation starter for philosophers. We find that mosaics remind us a lot of our world, although each piece is different in shape, color, material and size they all come together and create one single piece of art. Mosaics awaken our ability to adapt, to tolerate, to become one and connect with everyone and everything around us. They remind us that no matter our apparent differences we are all one.
Could you imagine a sky without stars? The night sky wouldn't be as overwhelming and beautiful if it weren't for the stars, which shine above us every single night. The stars were always something magical and inspiring to humanity resulting in them becoming a global spiritual symbol representing aspiration, inspiration, imagination, wonder, dreams, guidance, faith hope and even magic.

The Anahata has to do with unconditional Love, equilibrium, our well being, joy, and compassion as well as our ability to deal with complex emotions. In our Physical body Anahata guides our body circulation. In our emotional body it runs self love and love towards others, and in our mental body it steers our passion and our Spiritually.
