Talisman


http://www.dreamsemantics.com/2009/04/talisman/

The word talisman is derived from the Arabic word talism which means “to initiate into the mysteries”. Talismans are closely related to amulet which is derived from the Latin word amuletum or “an object that protects a person from trouble”. These words are so close– they are synonymous from each other.

Talismans are objects believed to repel bad vibes. It can also protect the person wearing amulets against diseases and evil. Talismans can be in forms of gems, stones, pendants, jewelries, statuettes, and trinkets but mostly, they are necklaces hung around the neck close to the core center of one’s body which in fact, many believe that this is where the powerful natural energy of the human body comes from.

These magical objects are specifically charmed with spells and rituals to meet certain powers and abilities. Most often, talismans use symbols, figures, images and other characters which possess powers believed to fully extend to the wearer. Ghost hunters wear talisman to repel ghost from harming them while some regard them as something that averts impending bad luck. The most common talisman known is the cross as the crucifix is often used to repel devil and its evil manifestations. However, talisman is only effective to those who believe in it and not to those who doubts.
