Are charms really lucky? Do mascots
and talismans really work? The answer is an unqualified yes - if
you believe. It all depends entirely upon belief. It is because
of the amount of belief that you have put into a particular object,
the centralization of faith that makes your charm or mascot respond.
Take the case of Donald Campbell, the record breaking water and
land speed champion, who broke his own world records many times
over. Campbell always took Woopit with him when he raced. Woppit
being a small toy bear with brilliant green eyes and toes. The little
bear was his lucky mascot. Then one day Campbell raced his new car
without taking Woppit with him. It is common knowledge how Campbell
crashed in very mysterious manner. In fact, he was lucky to survive
the crash, though his car was total wreck. '
For the last so many centuries until just a few years back, all
travelers to Tibet had been told that the great wealth and the power
of the Tibetan families was attributed to a Talli charm that was
reputedly so powerful it literally drew money to itself. It is said
that the charm was guarded fiercely. Talli himself, the owner and
the possessor of the charm, was immensely powerful and wealthy.
An Indian Maharajah is even said to have offered millions for the
original Talli charm, but was laughed to scorn. The ancients put
great faith in charms and talismans. You can do the same with whatever
charm or object you think is ' lucky ' for you. Endow the charm
with power by means of your love and concentration and belief. Magnetize
your charm or talisman with your own belief. A mascot or charm or
talisman is something on which we in our faith. Because of this,
it acts just like a point of concentration, the same principle used
in hypnotism. In hypnotism, you are given central point to concentrate
upon, and after a while, you are able to perform things which you
could never have even dreamed of performing earlier. Mascots and
Charms work in much the same fashion. They act as a focal point
of concentration and it is a fact that they more your mind is centered
on one particular spot, the more powerful does it become. Do you
remember what was said in an earlier chapter on importance of meditation?
Now that the power with which to infuse your charm has been explained
to you, take the first opportunity to meditate on your charm. Take
out your mascot or talisman and place it before or at the commencement
of your meditation. Think of it with love and belief. Concentrate
on it. Believe in what it can do and believe also in your power
to magnetize it. The potentiality of the charm will be greatly increased
by your concentration upon it. Don't merely put some trinket or
charm on your pocket or around your neck and carelessly leave it
to do the rest. Don’t say ' This is little charm is going
to get everything I want' say instead, 'With this talisman I am
going to get everything I want’. Of course you must believe
in what you are saying. Think well upon the charm, whatever it may
be. Hold it warmly in your grasp, keep it near to your heart and
concentrate on it. You must be aware of the power of the charm at
all times. This is of vital importance.
If possible, your clucky charm or talisman should be made of gold.
In case you cannot afford gold just yet, then rolled gold could
do. Because like attracts like, it is the law. Wear gold on yourself.
Wear a rolled gold wrist watch for the present or a pair of gold
cufflinks or a gold ring. If your ornaments are confined to silver
or steel then that will be all you will attract. You must think
in terms of gold to be able to draw gold to you. This is the most
important thing with regard to getting rich. Again take a tip from
the Marwari’s, their hands are laden with gold and diamonds
and there is invariably a gold chain around their necks. No wonder
they are so rich. You will always find a picture or a statue of
the Goddess Lakshmi in their houses or in the office. They centre
all their faith on this picture or statue or because of this the
picture or statue responds and gives them all that they asked for.
You can do the same.
In time, you will learn to laugh at all those people who scoff
at you for being superstitious. You will have learned how to make
your talisman or charm work unbelievable wonders for you. You will
have learned how to use it. They won’t learn. That is the
