Amulets have been around for thousands of years. They were used by our ancestors as a way of protecting the owner from evil. They’re also used in the 21st century for this purpose. But in this day and age the more comfortable and acceptable term of their use is to protect us from negative energy.
How does one go about finding a personalized amulet?
Cleansing your amulet
Here are a few examples of how to do so:
1. You can burn white sage (in a fire proof receptacle, of course) and wave your amulet through the smoke. While you’re immersing your amulet through the smoke it’s extremely important that you call upon your spirit guides (or angels) and ask them to release any energy that is attached to the article. Once you feel that’s completed, focus your personal energy on the item and pour your feelings, emotions, and spiritual energy into it. Again, doing this while moving it through the smoke. This will make the amulet your very own. Yay!
2. You can place your amulet in direct sunlight for a day, asking that all energy be “burned” out by the power of the sunlight. At the end of the day, bring in your amulet, hold it in your hand and pour your own power and energy into it.
3. You can place your amulet in the moonlight. This must be done at the full moon. Again, asking that all current attached energy be released and that the amulet be completely cleansed. When you hold the amulet in the morning after the moonlight ritual, send in your own power and energy.
4. And lastly, you can immerse the amulet in filtered water. This process is not as potent, in my opinion, and certainly cannot be used for something that is not water soluble.
Amulets are powerful objects because when you’re wearing or carrying them you have a constant reminder to focus on your spiritual self. So, really, an amulet is just a reminder for us to turn towards our own inner power and benefit from our spiritual source. The power doesn’t lay within the amulet itself but it’s a great source to help us keep in tune with our inner guidance.
