Talismans and the Power of Thought to Create Luck – by Linda Lang

Do you believe in good luck?

I do. I have my fair share of it too, if there is such a thing as fair share. That almost makes it sound like there’s a limited amount, and I don’t believe that for a second. So, maybe you’d call it synchronicity or being in the right place at the right time. And sometimes it just feels like someone is watching over you.

When my kids were young, I worked part-time in a local department store. It was great fun; I enjoyed the variety and the social aspects. One day, while moving some racks in the department I worked in, I found a 4 leaf clover preserved in resin. A real 4 leaf clover! I was so excited and shared my good fortune with a coworker who apparently considered me a pretty lucky person because she blurted out, “Do you have a horseshoe up your butt?”

I just laughed and felt even luckier. After all, energetically it must be good when others think you fortunate. It’s kind of like people sending good vibes your way through the power of their thought.

 Not long after that when we moved to a new home, we were given a horseshoe to put above the front door so we could hold on to our luck. It’s still hanging there today, right side up I might add so it looks like a cup. Call it an old wive’s tale, superstition or ritual, a horseshoe is one of  the most well known good luck symbols there is.

Do these talismans really hold the power to bring us good fortune?


I suspect their power lies in our beliefs. If we believe they do, we can interpret our world in a way that supports those beliefs. We can be more open to good fortune and feel like the proverbial gods are smiling upon us. 

That same principle can work with omens and negative symbolism. If we believe it to be, we can create it. Is it bad luck to walk under a ladder? Or perhaps just common sense that it’s safer to walk around it.


Consider your talisman beliefs, both positive and negative or protective. You’ll learn about yourself and perhaps you can incorporate a perceived good luck object into your life. And with the power of your unconscious mind, invite more good fortune into your world.

    Beautiful! I believe Talismans hold the power we give them, kind of like religion. In many ways we are our own Talisman. Thank you so much!!
