Talismans & Amulets
Amulets are believed to have the power to ward off negative energy, evil spirits, or even illness. Crucifixes, garlic, coal, runes, lucky coins, and horseshoes are some of the amulets that have been used for centuries. Amulets are worn by people as a form of protection and defense against the evil around them.
A Talisman is just the opposite of an amulet; talismans are believed to give more power to the person wearing it. This item is thought to give positive energy to the person who possesses it. Excalibur (King Arthur’s sword), Aladdin’s Magic Lamp, a magic rod, and a magic hat are all examples of talismans. These magical objects are worn to instill power, confidence, and power in those who wear them. Talismans are also believed to enhance personal power. They are generally made of crystals and gemstones.
