The Secret of Talismans and Lucky CharmsHow to Change Your Luck

Mar 12, 2008
It could be your own special lucky charm, or maybe an article of clothing that is lucky for you. Or a very special charm that you carry with you at all times. Your talisman will bring you good luck. If you believe in it. Maybe even if you don't believe in it.

Here's a story about Niels Bohr, the famous Nobel physicist. One day a visitor to Niels Bohr's country cottage saw that there was a horseshoe hanging on a wall and teased the eminent physicist about his apparent superstition. "Can it be," he asked, "that you, of all people, believe it will bring you luck?" "Of course not," Bohr said, "but I understand it brings you luck whether you believe it or not."

How does this happen? The fact that you own a personal talisman of some kind shows that you are willing to take action to improve your life and to bring yourself good luck. This willingness is part of your mind set, a way of thinking and acting that is part of your basic nature. This style of thinking opens your mind to new opportunities and prospects. You know that you are the type of person who is usually aware of the many opportunities that abound, and that you seem to attract good fortune.

Carrying a talisman also shows your inner belief that you can affect your "luck", which is defined as things that happen to you outside your control. Maybe you can't fully control the uncontrollable, but perhaps you can lean on the table hard enough to tilt things a little in your direction. Or even a lot in your direction.

We have all had experiences in our lives that were way outside normal expectations and beliefs. Like the occasional telepathic communication, or accurately predicting the future, or knowing things that were both totally accurate and clearly outside the normal communication channels. At some level we know that "hard reality" may not be all that hard, that it develops some odd ways of behaving from time to time. A Talisman is one way to break through the "hardness" of objective reality.

There are two main principles associated with Talismans, the Law of Reciprocity and the Rules of Use. These two main principles greatly expand the power of a Talisman. Here they are:

The very important Law of ReciprocityThat Which You Give Freely From the Heart is Returned to You Ten Fold.

Your Talisman brings you good fortune, often money or goods. This is part of a universal circulation. Your role is to be generous and charitable, knowing that you are part of this flow.

The Four Laws of Usehere are the rules for Talisman use:

1. Always keep me with you.

2. Look at me from time to time.

3. Be aware of what happens when you do this.

4. Accept the good things that come to you.

This last item is possibly the hardest. When your Talisman works and does indeed bring you good fortune, it is all too easy to call it chance, or some other cause. It is essential to tune in to the relationship between your belief system and the essential events in your lifeto be aware that your can indeed bring yourself good luck.
