A talisman or amulet is a piece of jewelry, a trinket, charm, stone, picture or collage that is used to protect one or attract that which one desires such as love, money or whatever it may be. According to some traditions, amulets are charged when the moon is waning, while talismans are charged when the moon is waxing.
To consecrate or ritually charge an amulet or talisman, light some incense as an offering to the Divine entity of your understanding. Place the object on your altar.
Sprinkle the object with salt and say:
"I consecrate you with the element of Earth."
Pass the object through the incense and say:
"I consecrate you with the element of Air."
Pass the object through candle flame and say:
"I consecrate you with the element of Fire."
Sprinkle the object with water and say:
"I consecrate you with the element of Water."
Place the object on the altar and hold your hand over it. Visualize a beam of light coming from the Divine through your hands into the object. Say:
"I hereby declare this object charged with the powers of earth, air, fire, water, and spirit. That it shall be used only for good, according to my will and divine law. May it serve me well in this world, between worlds, in all the worlds. Let it be so!"
Your talisman or amulet can now be used.
