A LUCKY CHARM, AN AMULET AND A TALISMAN WALK INTO A BAR......

Charms, Amulets, and Talismans each have their own unique purpose: a charm is worn to bring good luck, an amulet provides protection, and a talisman is used to attract a specific benefit or power.
But the one thing they do have in common is that they all like to drink together in bars.


LUCKY CHARMS

Anything can be used as a lucky charm and the item is simply used to attract good luck.
Some of the more popular lucky charms tend to be items such as horseshoes, a rabbit's foot, a 4 leaf clover, fuzzy dice, old smelly socks etc.
Some Lucky Charms are also magically delicious, with the exception of the old smelly socks. Those are just nasty.


AMULETS

Amulets have been worn for centuries and are believed to have the power to ward off negative energy, evil spirits, and provide protection. An amulet can be any item, but traditionally they were made from stone or some part of an animal like a tooth or bone.


TALISMANS

Talismans are used to attract something specific to their owner or to provide a particular power or energy. Talismans should be charged and consecrated in order to fill them with the power and energy of their intended use. They should also be dedicated to the person who will be wearing it.

Talismans are often carved with symbols or words to increase their power. Metal, stone or bones are commonly used for this purpose.

The best time to charge and consecrate a talisman is during the waxing moon. Specific zodiacal and planetary correspondences can also be used to determine the best time.

Crystals and Gemstones are also frequently used as Amulets and Talismans. The inherent mystical energy of a Gemstone can make this type of Amulet or Talisman even more powerful.


My Runic Talisman

This is a Talisman that I made using Purple Agate. I carved a Runic symbol on it using a Dremel. The Runic symbol is Sowilo which is the Rune of positive changes, spirit of life, success, and motivation.


Channel Universal Energies To Attract What You Want

The symbolism of the Talisman's programming communicates with your subconscious mind which in turn communicates with universal energies. If these energies aren't blocked by doubt then pathways will align with your intention. Talismans are a great way to channel universal energies in order to attract what you want, especially when combined with spell work.

somehow missed this one. This is why I follow you. Great article and thank you for sharing

Thank you! I wish Steemit had a list of favorites so I didn't miss posts.

Very interesting post about. Followed you, follow back when you can :)

I dabbled in wire wrapping crystals for a while. one of my favorites crystals to use is amethyst, especially banded amethyst. I've also wrapped a couple of clear quartz crystals, they tend to be more difficult to wire wrap because there's less "lumps" to wrap the wire around to hold the crystal.
I've never made a talisman, but I did make a couple of pendulums.

That's very cool. Amethyst is my favorite. I tried to wire wrap a couple, but I need more practice. The smooth surfaced ones are definitely harder to wrap.

This is interesting! I didn't realize there was a difference between the three. Thanks :)

Thank you for reading and commenting!
