Making a Magical Talisman
A talisman can be used for many different reasons. Whether to protect the wearer from harm, or to emit a certain energy for that person, they can be very useful for the witch. You can either make your own if you are inclined to do so, or you can buy an already made one and empower it with whatever energy you like. I found a great little charging ritual in the book : The Witches Craft by Raven Grimassi, and I thought I would share it here.
First you must decide what it is you are trying to achieve, whether it be protection, a feeling of peacefulness or confidence, whichever you may choose. Then you must find your talisman, this can be a simple stone necklace, a pentacle, or a handmade talisman if you are inclined to do so. Really it can be whatever draws you to it. Now that you have your intent and your item for housing that intent, you may begin your charging ritual.
Decided the size of the aura that will surround the talisman (such as an area of three feet, ten feet or whatever is appropriate). It is within this distance that the talisman will have influence through the magical energy it emanates. When you are ready to proceed with the magical charge, set up your altar with two candles and lay the talisman directly in front of you where you can gaze upon it easily. You may light some incense and have out some crystals as well if you wish. Now enter a merged state and fill your mind with the feeling or attitude you wish to implant into the object. Then direct the feeling into the object and see it being implanted into the object. You can do this by physically touching the talisman or just visualize your energy going into it, whatever way feels more comfortable to you. Visualize the field of influence it is to have. Clap your hands sharply together and leave the work area until your mind returns to normal.
Now you have your magically charged talisman! Wear it when you need that energy to work for you. Enjoy!
