Be Your own Talisman

On a daily basis I have talismans & religious artefacts all about my person as a protective shield & to ‘amplify my powers’. In a challenging business meeting yesterday I was turning a lump of moldavite around in my fingers. Moldavite is one of my big guns, my own personal kryptonite that called to me in the alleyways of Glastonbury on a visit home many years ago. I wear a buddha from Kamakura at all times. I’m taken to carrying a daily Tarot card, a crucifix, a vintage key, a rosary, any other charm or amulet picked up on my journey through life so far. Combined with the several incantations, chants & prayers that power me. Even perhaps a herb or potion to protect me internally as my path unfolds. I use vintage Tarot & Cartomancy decks occasionally, people often comment: ‘Wow those cards are so powerful!”. The truth is they are just a collection of painted pasteboard.

“You do realise you are strong enough on your own. The power is you”

When you strip away all of the talismans, magical chants and lucky charms, you are left naked, just you against the world. What crutches, totems or prayers are defending you today? You do realise you are strong enough on your own. The power is you, be your own talisman, go forth & be extraordinary.
