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!
