When Swiss psychologist Carl Jung was a child, he found a smooth stone, which he kept in a matchbox. He confided in the stone. He told the stone his deepest secrets. He carried it around with him. Years later, in his autobiography, Memories, Dreams, Reflections, Jung movingly described his experiences with this stone, the magick that he associated with it, the power with which he imbued it.
And that’s the key with any power object: It is powerful only because we make it so. Its magick originates in us, with our intent and our passion. But first, you have to find your power object.
What type of object appeals to you That’s the first thing to decide. Rocks, driftwood, an animal figure made of fabric, ceramic, stone, wood, even plastic: Any of these are fine. The object should be three-dimensional— as opposed to a picture of a stone or a piece of driftwood— and should have some sort of personal meaning. It should also be small enough to carry with you— in a pocket, a purse, a backpack.
Crystals and certain gemstones make excellent power objects. So do figures of angels, unicorns, and mythical Gods and Goddesses. Just about anything three-dimensional and small enough to carry can serve as a magickal object if it feels right.
