Talismanic Magick

Talismanic Magick

Talismans are powerful magickal tools that anyone can use. Many books, however, aren’t very clear as to what they are and how they’re used. In Modern Magick, I define a talisman as “any object, sacred or profane, with or without appropriate symbols, that has been charged or consecrated by appropriate means and made to serve a specific end.” Let me break this definition down for you: 

A talisman is a physical object, not merely an idea or concept. It can be a sacred object, such as a cross or a pentacle, or it can be something with no obvious spiritual connection such as a favorite ring, pendant, or even a piece of paper. It may have symbols or writing on it, but that is not a necessity. What is a necessity is that energy must be put into the talisman to charge or consecrate it. It must have a specific purpose. Such a purpose can be general (such as health) or specific (to get a certain job).

Power of Concentration

"The purpose of concentration is to apply all the active forces of mind and personality upon that one thing which is being done now, and it may therefore be called the master key to all attainments and achievement. In its last analysis, the cause of all failure can be traced to the scattering of forces, and the cause of all achievement to the concentration of forces..."

The Menehune -Hawaiian Mythical Legend- Menehunes of Hawaii

Hawaiian - Polynesian Mysticism

The Menehune
(also known as Nawao)

Menehune are the "Little People" of Hawaii, similar to pixies or trolls

According to Wikipedia: 
In Hawaiian mythology, the Menehune [pronounced meh-neh-HOO-neh] are said to be a people, sometimes described as dwarfs in size, who live in the deep forests and hidden valleys of the Hawaiian Islands, far from the eyes of normal humans. Their favorite food is themaiʻa (banana), but they also like fish.


The Menehune were said to be superb craftspeople. Legends say that the Menehune built temples (heiau), fishponds, roads, canoes, and houses. They are said to have lived in Hawaiʻibefore settlers arrived from Polynesia many centuries ago.


In Beckwith's Hawaiian Mythology, there are references to several other forest dwelling races: the Nawao, who were large-sized wild hunters descended from Lua-nuʻu, the mu people, and the wa people.[1]


Some early scholars theorized that there was a first settlement of Hawaiʻi, by settlers from the Marquesas Islands, and a second, from Tahiti. The Tahitian settlers oppressed the "commoners", the manahune in the Tahitian language, who fled to the mountains and were called Menahune. Proponents of this theory point to an 1820 census of Kauaʻi by Kaumualiʻi, the ruling Aliʻi Aimoku of the island, which listed 65 people as menehune.[2]


Folklorist Katherine Luomala believes that the legends of the Menehune are a post-European contact mythology created by adaptation of the term manahune (which by the time of the settling of the Hawaiian Islands had acquired a meaning of "lowly people" or "low social status" and not diminutive in stature) to European legends of brownies.[3] Menehune are not mentioned in pre-contact mythology; the legendary "overnight" creation of the Alekoko fishpond, for example, finds its equivalent in the legend[4] about the creation of a corresponding structure on Oʻahu, which was supposedly indeed completed in a single day - not by menehune, but, as a show of power, by a local aliʻi who demanded every one of his subjects to appear at the construction site and assist in building.

Lao Tzu


"The journey of a thousand miles begins beneath one's feet."
~ Lao Tzu ~

Excerpted from & translated by Wing-Tsit Chan
Way of Lao Tzu Tao-Te Ching


Kyphi (Kapet)

Daily in Ancient Egyptian ritual, Kyphi was and remains a dedicant to the Goddess Aset (Isis) where frankincense was burned during the morning, myrrh during the day, and Kapet (Kyphi from the Greek translation) during the evening. Depending upon the recipe, Kyphi is primarily a blend of myrrh, frankincense, copal, and benzoin. This blend smells wonderful; it helps create a very rich and mystickal atmosphere during ritual for me. You can make your own blends in oil, resin, and paste forms to be used as incense during Moon rituals, spellcasting, divination, prayer, and aromatherapy.

Kyphi in oil form can be used to increase circulation, relieve tension, and stress. As a side note, Queen Hatshepsut (c. 1472–58 BCE) formed expeditions to bring back processed myrrh and living myrrh trees to Egypt to adornthe foreground of her Dayr al-Bahrî temple (Hatshepsut Temple) in western Thebes. Many ritual blend recipes can be found on the temple walls at Edfu and Philae to this day.

The three important ancient Kyphi blends are:

Dioscorides

Edfu

Galen

There are several excellent websites devoted to these blends and their history which anyone can research and find for more information.

The Law of Three

The Law of Three (Threefold Law or Law of Return) and Karma are very much related within the Universe. Therefore, whatever you do or whatever energies you put or emit into your environment will return to you threefold or three times over. 

Can we as practitioners of the Craft influence, change (manipulate), or manage these Karmic energies or forces? 

Based on the natural Laws of Physics, spiritual energies do have substance as electrical forces within nature and the universe. 

Per Wikipedia [Wikipedia contributors, "Rule of Three (Wicca)," Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia, http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Rule_of_Three_(Wicca)&oldid=458377879(accessed March 8, 2012).]: 
The Rule of Three (also Three-fold Law or Law of Return) is a religious tenet held by some Wiccans. It states that whatever energy a person puts out into the world, be it positive or negative, will be returned to that person three times. Some subscribe to a variant of this law in which return is not necessarily threefold.[1][2]
The 'Rule of Three' is sometimes described as karma by Wiccans, however this is not strictly accurate. Both concepts describe the process of cause and effect and often encourage the individual to act in a good way. However the concept of karma, according to the scriptures ofBuddhismHinduism and other eastern belief systems, does not operate on a system of three-fold return. Furthermore, such belief systems do not contain the same concepts of 'good' and 'evil' that Wicca does.
According to John Coughlin the Law posits "a literal reward or punishment tied to one's actions, particularly when it comes to working magic".[3] The law is not a universal article of faith among Wiccans, and "there are many Wiccans, experienced and new alike, who view the Law of Return as an over-elaboration on the Wiccan Rede."[3] Some Wiccans believe that it is a modern innovation based on Christianmorality.[4][5]
The Rule of Three has been compared by Karl Lembke  to other ethics of reciprocity, such as the concept of karma in Dharmic religionsand the Christian edict, "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you" (Matthew 7:12 ), also called the "Golden Rule."
The Rule of Three has a possible prototype in a piece of Wiccan liturgy which first appeared in print in Gerald Gardner's 1949 novel High Magic's Aid:[6][7]
'Thou hast obeyed the Law. But mark well, when thou receivest good, so equally art bound to return good threefold.' (For this is the joke in witchcraft, the witch knows, though the initiate does not, that she will get three times what she gave, so she does not strike hard.)
The first published reference to the Rule of Three as a general ethical principle may be from Raymond Buckland, in a 1968 article for Beyondmagazine.[8] The Rule of Three later features within a poem of 26 couplets titled "Rede of the Wiccae", published by Lady Gwen Thompson in 1975 in Green Egg vol. 8, no. 69[9] and attributed to her grandmother Adriana Porter.[10][11] The threefold rule is referenced often by the neo-Wiccans of the Clan Mackenzie in the S.M. Stirling Emberverse novels.
This rule was described by the Dutch metal band Nemesea, in the song "Threefold Law", from the album "Mana".

And the debate continues...
