CHARMS

Why do people carry good luck charms?  Do they really work?  Even the most educated and successful people seem to carry a trinket or two for good fortune.  Here are a couple of articles about President Obama and his good luck charms.  The first is about how people give Obama lucky charms, often thrusting them into his hands as they shake his.  They want Obama to be safe and successful and seem to think their charm will help.

The second article from Time magazine is about what lucky charms the political candidates carried before the election.  Obama carried quite a few of them, all quite exotic.   John McCain, only an old coin.  Somehow, fitting!

In my picture above are my own personal “charms”.  I don’t carry them all with me; they sit on my bookcase.  From time to time I may carry one with me.  They symbolize a wide range of belief systems, all of which I respect.  I have planetary talismans, a real old Indian arrowhead, a carved bear, I-Ching coins, a little Buddha, an Eastern Orthodox icon, and miniature bible.  Looking at them, I realize I need something Hindu.  Maybe a little Shiva. 

How can an inanimate object possibly bring good fortune?  It appears to be only superstition.  Yet, behind superstitions are often nuggets of truth, and sometimes more then just a nugget. 

It has been suggested that a lucky charm has a psychological effect.  If someone thinks a trinket will give him or her luck; they will behave in a way that will produce good fortune.  I don’t think it is quite that simple.  The power of a lucky amulet can be more then only psychological. 

Talisman

Talisman

Nobody has real control over his or her environment, yet its human nature to try.  When faced with a world of randomness, we try to bring order to the uncertainty of life.  A charm reflects that that desire for order, for protection against the whims of chance.  But it should not only be a hope.  Just carrying a charm around is not sufficient.  If a charm, amulet or talisman is properly realized, it can be a tool for shaping our thoughts and thereby shaping our reality.  Properly used a talisman acts as a focus.  It is used to reinforce practices of visualization and thought control.  These practices are the cornerstone of what is called magic, or the law of attraction, or the occult.

Now President Obama has become something of a talisman for many people.  He appears on key chains, souvenirs, and memorabilia of all sorts.  People are hanging his picture on their walls.  There is a scramble to gather key newspapers with Obama on the cover.   Obama has become the focus of many hopeful thoughts.  When enough people project their positive feelings and hope towards the president, it will have a rebounding result for the better.  Obama has become our talismanic president!

    …or his charms could have something to do with Obama’s closeness to the satanic theosophy cult promoted by Madame Blavatsky, and Theosophical Luciferianism’s many other esoteric (and always obsessed with eugenics & world domination) sub-groups including Lucifer Trust (a sitting member of the U.N.), Bohemian Grove, Skull & Bones, Bilderberg Group, Freemasonry and the Rosy Cross…

    …remember, Obama got his first job from Henry Kissinger who is deeply connected to these groups and their members.

    I’m not joking about any of this… Watch “The Obama Deception” for free on YouTube, to even just breach the surface of our real history, present and future. Not the pop culture, corporate media & classroom versions.

    Hi Channo,
    And what exactly is wrong with Satanic Theosophy and Theosophical Luciferianism? It would be nice if we had a secret global power controlling world events. Maybe we’d not have an economic collapse. I think a world controlling secret society would not let the banking system nearly perish. Nope. TThey would be smarter then that. They’d keep the trains running on time! If anyone belongs to this global secret society, please invite me to sign up! That would be so cool.
