The power of this talisman lies in your ability to direct your mind to thoughts and emotions that will inspire feelings of connection and friendship.
Find a quiet place to sit where you will be undisturbed. Hold your talisman in the palm of your hand, exploring its shape and texture with your fingertips. Close your eyes and take 5 long slow deep breaths, allowing your mind to settle into quiet, and becoming aware of your body and breath. Still holding your attention on your talisman, bring to mind the important people in your life, imagine in full detail how you feel when you are with them, create a technicolour image of a wonderful time together in your mind’s eye and really experience the love and warmth of your relationship for the next five slow breaths. Now move your awareness to your heart chakra (in the middle of your chest). With the next five in-breaths channel your feelings of love and connection into the chakra, making it glow a brighter and brighter green.
Now allow all your thoughts to drift away, and imagine instead a midnight sky studded with stars stretching into infinity. Connect to their eternal presence, knowing that they will remain unchanged forever, and breathing quietly for ten slow breaths enjoy the feelings of security and permanence they bring. Note any thoughts or feelings that arise.
Finally bring your attention back to the shape of the talisman in your hand, and maintaining the feelings of unending security in your mind, focus again on the feelings of love and connection that sit at your heart chakra. Connect the feelings of love and permanence to the talisman in your hand. Repeated practice whilst holding your talisman will enable you to access these transformative feelings more readily, helping you to draw on feelings of security and connection at times when you most need them.
