Owning Your Magic

I’ve had a few people tell me this Summer that they didn’t know what I did to my pieces, but they work to bring them calm, clarity or healing.

All I am doing is creating a physical focal point for that energy to become anchored, allowing it to build over time through repeated reinforcement as a part of a practice of mindfulness. Anything can become a touchstone in this way, but sometimes we need to be given permission to trust in our own powers, our own ability to heal and to manifest positive change. If permission is needed, I want to say that yes, you can do it, trust in yourself and the universe!

For our purposes, it is a seal impressed upon an object (a personal talisman or house warding tile) to be used as a protective, energetic shield or to manifest a desire into being. Although they can be a battery for spiritual energy, the use of a sigil does not require religious belief, it can be viewed as a psychological science.

To activate the ward or talisman, you will need to perform the three ‘C’s – cleansing, consecrating and charging your object – in a way that is meaningful to you and your purposes. Below are suggestions for how to do this:
