Difference between talisman and amulets
A distinction is sometime made between amulets and talismans, Talismans are active objects – they are transformers and lightning rods whereas amulets are passive. An amulet is basically protective and wards off bad luck, while a talisman is meant to attract favourable influences and bring good fortune. An alternative distinction is that a talisman is specially made for a specific purpose, while an amulet is a general shield against evil.
Luckiest talismans from all over the world

What is Feng Shui
Feng Shui is the art and science of organizing and designing environments that enhance the optimal flow of energy. The understanding of this statement is based on two things: that you believe the energy flows through the universe, and that you believe there is a way to take advantage of that energy.
And as I do not pretend that you blindly believe what I say with regards to energy, we are going to talk about the science of environment design to improve your quality of life.
One of the basic concepts that Feng Shui focuses on is that your home is a reflection of your mind. We project into the physical world what is happening in our minds. And this can be easily checked; you often get to know a lot of important information about a person simply by looking into their home.
How Feng Shui Works
Now let’s talk about energy. In Feng Shui you will hear very often the terms qi or chi, which means “vital force”. It’s a bit more ethereal than the electricity that powers appliances, but it’s real. Qi is the energy that animates life, and it has been scientifically proven that we have an “energy field” surrounding us.
How does this vital energy work? For example, if you live in a wet basement, the stagnant qi can restrict your personal energy field and make you feel personally stuck, developing diseases caused by that stagnation. Your financial and emotional life can also stagnate.
On the other hand, if you have a clean space, full with expansive sensory signals that make your energy field expand along with your personal magnetism, you will enjoy prosperity and abundance in all aspects.
The good news is that you don’t have to believe what I say to confirm whether Feng Shui works or not; you can put it into practice and observe the results. When you make specific changes in your home based on your needs and desires, focusing your energy to support your goals and intentions, you will understand how your outer space reflects the state of your mind, and how an outward change can change your inner state.
That’s why I think Feng Shui is not something paranormal or magical. Simply put, by making changes in your environment that can help you think more clearly and feel more secure, you can also incorporate those changes into your mind and, consequently, change your life. Would you dare to give it a try?
Attract Good Luck by Using the Power of Thought
One of the main ways to attract good fortune and good luck is to assume the right attitude. Yes, there is a series of positive affirmations which, when repeated, can be used to change your luck. You can use set phrases (for example, “I am in perfect harmony and “Enjoy your life”) or phrases created by yourself. If you are inclined towards this last option, consider some recommendations.
- All affirmations should trigger positive feelings and determine your advancement on the chosen path.
- When using compiled sentences you want to use the pronoun “I”, “I”, “I”. By doing so, you are associating yourself with a positive image.
- All affirmations should refer to the present. You want to state your wish and the universe will adapts to it.
- Do not use long statements, they should be easy to remember and repeated as a mantra when necessary.
It should be kept in mind that any formula for success should be repeated in a good mood, and you should start with a small number of phrases. Do not take time off from work, the most important thing – regularity.
Good luck in your professional life. How to obtain it?
Even regular people who do not have their own business, but go to work every day, do not diminish the magnitude of luck. Maybe that’s what allows them to improve their well-being and social status. Therefore, we consider that the best way to attract good luck and good fortune at work is with the help of a trick. It must be said on the same day when you have something very important to do.
To do this, get up at dawn and, looking at sunrise, say the following words: “The sun, which represents the people of the heaven and light, which gives warmth to the mother-earth Dari, also give me luck. The sun gifts the earth with life, light and heat. I grant success to be good in everything!”
For most of us with our busy lives and cosmopolitan lifestyles an easy method to bring a touch of good luck and happiness can be in the form of carrying lucky charms or lucky amulets. Nowadays, we see many of these little charm hangings and amulets abound in the stores and carried by many people of different ethnic origins.
Not only are these lucky charms pretty and make a good accessory to our laptop bags, handbags or even as a body adornment, but it also adds some measure of good luck coming our way. One of my personal favorites is the mystic knot, which I wear as a piece of real jewelry to energize my throat chakra, as I meet and talk to lots of people everyday as part of my job.
For those of you who cannot afford to wear this symbol in real jewelry, a good substitute is the Jade hangings, which I carry along on my laptop bag. Another charm that I carry with me, attached to my pant’s belt loop is the dragon carp.
Traditionally, the dragon carp is the symbol of the normal carp metamorphosing into the powerful dragon, thus lending weight to what I do or say in the course of my working day.
For those of you who were born in the year of the Dragon , A good remedy would be to carry a symbol of the Pi Yao, to avoid any bad luck coming your way as the Dragon confronts the Tai Sui and ‘Da Hao’ symbolizing financial losses this year. Carrying a bunch of jade discs (Jinyumatang – Full of money and gold) looking like a string of money would not hurt either to bring plenty of income opportunities your way.
Those who work in the creative line, where fresh new ideas are the norm and requirement, a good pair of lucky charms would be the Dragon Tortoise and the Cicada. The dragon tortoise will bring you plenty of support in everything that you do and say. Having the cicada near you brings excellence in the literary field. Make sure you carry the cicada along with you at all times to bring new breath of ideas and strategies.
Another good symbol that is popular among the Chinese in Southeast Asia is the symbol of the dumpling as it indicates that I will never go hungry or suffer from any shortage of money in my life. Often used as a bunch of 3 dumplings, this indicates the 3 basic requirements of life, shelter, food and family. This translates into plenty of property, money and a good family life.
The Peach is known as a symbol of long life and good health. Having this symbol in my bedroom would be great, to ensure that I stay healthy and free from the flu. Well, I’m off to hang up my peach symbol, here’s hoping that I stay healthy for the rest of the year..
