Collecting Your Charms
One of the things that I love most about Charm Casting is that pretty much any charm, trinket or small object can be used in your Charm Casting set.
You’ll want it be be small enough and robust enough to be thrown around with the other objects in your set without damage.
And you’ll want it to be something that you can give a meaning to.
You’ll start to notice small objects and regard them differently.
Collect the things that draw your attention, or that you find curious.
Just because you collect it doesn’t mean that it has to be included in your set immediately.
You may find that something catches your attention and you’ll save it.
Then only weeks or months later, does it make sense how it wants to be used, and only then is it added to your Charm Casting set.
This is a journey of (re)learning to trust yourself.
If you find something curious, and you feel called to save it, then do so.
In time it will make sense, or it will lose its curiosity and you’ll know that it’s time to release it.
What to Use for Charm Casting Set
No doubt you already have suitable objects that could be used as you start to build your Charm Casting kit, or add to it.
You could include, but not limited to:
- Metal jewellery charms
- Old earrings/pieces of jewellery that you no longer need
- A ring
- A key
- Beads (be careful with perfectly round ones or they may just roll away!)
- Thimble (Metal)
- Tumblestone crystals or crystal chips
- Pieces of wood
- Small pine cones
- Seed pods
- Small bones
Charms to Get You Started
To start with you want around 8-12 charms in your set.
This is likely to grow quickly, but to start with as you get familiar with Journey Casting and reading the charms, it’s easier to start with less.
As you get more confident you can add more (and more, and more and more….) charms to your set.
As you start, you may want to include small items that represent the following:
- Your home
- Rest/Slow down
- New beginnings
- The mind
- The heart
This collection of charms would give you a great place to start for interpreting your readings.
Then as your experience and confidence grows, you can add more charms to get greater insight and then explore the nuances of the message coming through.
