Seals & Talismans
A Seal, Talisman or Parchment is an important part of many rituals .
In Anna Riva's Words:
For those who wish to master the art of magical achievement, there are numerous occult aids which may be of value. Some of these tools are amulets, charms, symbols, and talismans. These are objects inscribed with a magic incantation or sign that stands for or suggests something else by reason of relationship, association, convention, or accidental resemblance-a visible sign of something invisible.
They are worn or carried to avert harm, ward off misfortune, protect against danger, to bring good, insure fortunate events and attract love, luck and favorable conditions.

BASIC CANDLE RITUAL WITH A SEAL
ANOINTING A SEAL
To heighten & intensify the powers of symbolic seals, many persons consecrate them with an oil which has been chosen as applicable to the purpose toward which they are working. Unless specific or different instructions are given for a particular ritual, here is the most generally accepted way to magnetize the seal.
First moisten the fingertips with the oil to be used & place a dot of it at each corner of a square seal. Start at the top left, then bottom right, bottom left, & top right. Then connect the corners by beginning at the upper right corner & moving the finger downwards & around the seal, ending as you reach the top right corner again.
On a circular seal, apply four dots of oil, in sequence, to the north, south, east, and west points at the outer edge of the paper, skin or whatever material the seal is made of. Then connect the dots, beginning at the north, going in a counter clockwise direction, and ending back at the north point, completing the circle.
Usually, the consecration is repeated once a week unless other instructions are given in the suggested ritual.
BASIC USES OF SEALS
Use your seal, along with your meditation or prayers, several times each day, for a minimum of seven consecutive days. Belief is the most important secret that can be revealed to you. If you believe there is a solution to a problem or a pathway to your goal, in belief you will find the answer or the way. You will achieve the mental magnetism you have been lacking in order to conquer your enemies, resolve your dilemmas, overcome obstacles, and control your destiny.
