Om Mani Padme Hum is the most frequently used mantra in Buddhism.
"The six syllables, Om Mani Padme Hum, mean that in dependence on the practice which is an indivisible union of method and wisdom, you can transform your impure body, speech and mind into the pure body, speech, and mind of a Buddha."
- Dalai Lama

Tibetan Buddhists believe that saying the mantra (prayer), Om Mani Padme Hum, out loud or silently to oneself, invokes the powerful benevolent attention and blessings of Chenrezig, the embodiment of compassion.
Spinning the written form of the mantra around in a Mani wheel (or prayer wheel) is also believed to give the same benefit as saying the mantra, and Mani wheels, small hand wheels and large wheels with millions of copies of the mantra inside, are found everywhere in the lands influenced by Tibetan Buddhism.
Turquoise is a gemstone that provides protection, grounding, strength, courage, love and luck. Turquoise is also a token of friendship. Perhaps it's strongest ability is for alleviating negativity.
Many Indian tribes associate Turquoise with fertility.
Turquoise is one of the oldest protection amulets. Turquoise is a most efficient healer, providing solace for the spirit and well-being for the body.
As a stone of purification, Turquoise dispels negative energy. It promotes self-realization and aids in creative problem-solving, thus calming the nerves when speaking in public.
It helps stabilize mood swings, and dissolves a martyred attitude of self-sabotage. It is also empowering if you feel bullied or suffer prejudice.
Because it soothes the mind, Turquoise is good for jet lag and fears of flying.
