Charging a Lucky Talisman with Incense

 

Incense is an incredible and often overlooked tool for making some really powerful magic - either as a support tool when doing other magic spells, or as the focus of the spell itself. One of the beautiful things that you can do with incense is use it to cleanse, charge or empower ritual tools and objects. For example, if you have a tarot deck, you can pass it through incense smoke to cleanse it or charge it, something that is especially useful because traditional cleansing with liquids would harm the cards.

One of my favorite things to do with incense is to consecrate, bless and charge lucky talismans. I do this all the time with jewelry and small objects that I can carry on me when I need that dose of luck.  Luck isn't just for gamblers either - being lucky means being in the right place at the right time and having opportunities open for us easily. So all of us could use a lucky talisman anytime - and here's a spell to make your own.

Making a Good Luck Talisman with Incense

Here's a simple spell for ritually creating a lucky talisman (or amping up the luck of an existing talisman)

What you will need:

- Cone Incense for Luck (I Got Mine Cone Incense or Easy Winners Incense are superb for this work)
- A small heat proof dish or incense holder
- Matches or lighter
- A talisman that you wish to charge (can be a lucky coin, rabbit's foot, gemstone, jewelry or anything that can be easily carried or worn)

Light the tip of the incense cone and place it on the heat-proof dish.  After several seconds, blow out the flame and let the fragrant smoke rise up from the incense cone.

Hold your talisman in both hands. Say a prayer or intention for how your would like to charge your talisman. For example say, "May this ring bring me luck in love" or "Spirit, bless this rabbit's foot so that I attract lucky opportunities"

Visualize the luck effect that you would like to see. As you do, wave the talisman through the smoke several times, being sure that the smoke touches all sides.

You talisman is now charged with your prayer or intention. Carry it with you anytime you would like to give yourself extra luck.

Let the incense burn completely and imbue your space with extra lucky energy. So simple and yet so effective!

What Does It Mean When I See 11:11?

Spirit Guide Messages Through Repeating Numbers

One of the most common ways that our spirit guides reach out to us is through sending us numbers - digital clocks have really become such an amazing tool in this sense because they are all around us. if you are seeing repeating numbers on your digital clock like 11:11, 2:22, 5:55, 1:11 and so on, or you are seeing these repeating numbers elsewhere, such as on license plates, addresses and so on,  it means that your spirit guides are trying to connect with you.

I think of these as being something like spirits knocking at our door. The first thing I do when I notice one of these repeating numbers is reflect on what my focus was on at the time that I saw it - Was I daydreaming in a positive way about the future or was I worrying about something - was I having a good memory from the past or was I focused on just what was in front of me right now. Whatever I was thinking about, my guides have a message for me about that topic.

Now, since I have been working for a long time on building communication with my guides, they usually tell me right then and there what they need to tell me “Yes, you’re going to be ok” “Let it go” “Do it” or whatever. but if you’re just starting to get connected to your guides and you see a repeating number, take a moment to reflect on what was on your mind at that moment and then just try to “listen” to what they have to say about it - if you don’t “hear” anything right away - don’t fret - your guides may just be knocking on your door to let you know that they are supporting you in whatever it was that you were thinking about.

The number itself has significance - If you study some basic numerology, you will know what the numbers mean and you can then interpret that in light of what you were thinking about. For example, if you were thinking about someone that you were interested in and you saw 3:33 on the clock, 333 indicates that there are angels surrounding you and this person and that angels want to help you. Don’t worry if you’re not an expert in numerology though, below is a handy chart for understanding the messages behind different repeating numbers.

Magic for Meeting a New Love (or New Friends)

While all this rootwork and spellwork is quite powerful, if you don’t follow it up with putting yourself out into the flow of life for your perfect person to meet you, you are hiding your light under a bushel basket. Together the spellwork and the action will open up multiple opportunities for you and your true love to cross paths. Remember that when you are both intentional and out in the world to receive those intentions, you give the Universe more opportunities to bring you amazing synchronicities.
