Good Luck Charm

Would you like to make yourself more magnetic to blessings?

You could experiment with good luck charms or magic amulets -- objects that you imagine might attract benevolence into your life.

How about a replica of Brísingamen, the magical necklace of the Norse goddess Freya? When she wore it, neither man nor god could resist her allure.

Or maybe a copy of the thyrsus, a wand wielded by Dionysus, the god of ecstasy?

Or the bracelet of meteorite chunks I saw advertised as a luck-bringer in the back of a tabloid?

As fun as things like these might be, I believe there's a superior approach to the art of charging up your mojo. It's embodied by the metaphorical talisman that Tom Waits recommends in his song "Get Behind the Mule": Always keep a diamond in your mind.

Go get one of those diamonds.
