Living a balanced life remains a priority for you. After all, it’s the key to your happiness, right? Practicing what you preach becomes effortless over time which leads to greater overall satisfaction with where you are and what you’re doing with your time.

To keep those good vibes flowing, you can protect yourself from negativity by wearing a talisman. The charm is often worn around the neck next to the throat chakra. Some people opt to wear their talisman on their wrist or in the form of a stone on their finger. Wherever you decide to place it, the stone, charm or amulet is one that you’ll cherish the more you wear it.

Examples of Talismans

Some examples of talismans include crystals such as clear quartz, amethyst, and black tourmaline which all ward off negative energy, gemstones such as peridot, turquoise, and diamond, shells or charms with images that speak to you or are inscribed with a message you can relate to. Properly cleanse the object with salt or the smoke of white sage to remove other people’s energy from it as suggested by Amy B. Scher, an author and energy therapist. Then, consecrate it with your intent and using whatever items you want to charge it with (salt, moonlight or incense).

Making Your Own Talisman

Fashioning your own talisman is very satisfying. After all, you’re able to charge it with your energy. You get to choose every material that goes into it, too. You can opt to use recycled or natural materials to create your necklace, bracelet or ring.

You know exactly how it was created and for what intent it will be used for. There’s something magical about creating something with your own two hands. Your one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry has greater meaning when you’re the one to make it and charge it with your energy.

A Personal and Meaningful Protector

A talisman is personal. Based on what you want to bring into your life and what you want to avoid, choose the right piece of jewelry for you to wear. It doesn’t matter if you buy it or make it yourself using natural materials from Mother Earth, either. As long as it has personal significance, it’s the right talisman for you.
