Simple Charge and Carry Talismans
One of the easiest and most portable ways to work crystal magic is to charge a small stone with a particular intention and then keep it with you in a pocket or locket as you go about your day.
The energy of the crystal itself combines with the magical energy of your intention to reinforce the manifestation of your desire. In addition, your awareness of the charmed stone on your person helps remind you that the Universe is realigning itself to conform to your request.
This type of spell is particularly useful for work concerning emotional, psychological, and/ or spiritual challenges, such as boosting your courage when facing a daunting task or situation. However, you can also charge a stone for longer-term goals, such as attracting prosperity or warding off sources of chronic negativity.
One note of caution: if you carry stones in your pocket, be sure not to carry keys or any other sharp objects in the same pocket, as many of the stones used in magic can scratch easily.
It’s also best to avoid carrying polished and raw stones together— particularly raw crystal points, which can definitely scratch the softer polished variety!
Of course, you can wrap polished stones in a soft cloth to avoid these risks, though some argue that this creates an unnecessary extra barrier between the stone’s energy and your body. This may or may not be the case for you, however, so do what feels right for your circumstances. Finally, try to avoid carrying cell phones and other wireless devices with magically charged crystals, as it’s possible that the emissions from these gadgets can interfere, however slightly, with the stone’s energy field.
You will need:
1 white, black, or purple candle— these are good colors for charging stones, but use a different color if you prefer.
1 or more amethyst and/ or clear quartz crystal pieces— these crystals are excellent charge “boosters,” but are not strictly necessary, so if you don’t have either crystal, you can still charge your talisman stone with your own energy.
1 stone to charge and carry— see individual talisman instructions, below.
Place the amethyst and/ or quartz, if using, in front of the candle and light the wick.
Hold your talisman stone in both hands.
Close your eyes and take several deep breaths.
Visualize yourself achieving the effect that you want the talisman to recreate later (see individual instructions below for examples).
Using words of affirmation will help solidify the visualization, which is the expression of your intention for the talisman.
When you sense that the stone has been programmed with the energy you’re seeking to draw on later, place the stone near the amethyst/clear quartz and leave it with the candle burning for at least one hour.
Then it’s ready to take with you wherever you go, whenever you need it!
