How do Kabbalah Amulets and Talismans Work?

There are many misconceptions about Kabbalah and Jewish Mysticism, some fueled by popular culture, others simply by conflicting information. Kabbalah is a side of Jewish mysticism that considers and speculates on how the concept of divinity, the beginnings and ultimate fate of the soul, creation, and the roles of human beings in creation all function, and what their final purpose is. There are four main practices in Kabbalah

  • Meditation- Considering how G-d is both unknowable and omnipresent, including the 3 blessings, morning prayer, and other activities designed to reinforce awareness of being and a sense of spiritual wholeness

  • Devotion- Giving oneself fully and openly to the practice of spirituality and the awareness of presence, including guided prayers

  • Mysticism-  Seeking knowledge or understanding, both as an intellectual process and a living reality. The practice takes people beyond the normal understanding of reason, prompting a transcendent process.

  • Magical practices- Including amulets and talismans, these do not negate Jewish teachings, but rather enhance and continue the idea of transcendence through certain objects and practices.

Kabbalah amulets and talismans are not concerned with magic in the popular culture sense- engaging witches and wizards, with ominous connotations. It is not Harry Potter, nor is it The Crucible or a pagan practice. The practices of Kabbalah "magic" through amulets, talismans, and other mechanisms is based in Talmudic study, having its roots in the Torah and the teachings of the larger Jewish community. 

Amulets are stones, gems, pendants, and other worn items that are believed to promote good luck and ward off evils. Almost all major religions engage in one form or another of amulet usage. In Kabbalah, these items are endowed with a special power of good luck, success, security, wealth, and health. This power is enhanced through the practices of daily devotion, prayer, meditation, and mysticism to best create a sense of wholeness, balance, and blessing in the wearer. 

One Jewish belief involves the system of letters. Rather than simply being a symbolic alphabet that can be combined to form words and ideas, Judaism asserts that each letter has a unique character and quality to it. This means that the power of words and nomenclature extends far beyond simply having a social meaning- each word has attached to it an effect on a person, object, body organ, and on the global community.

The impact of these words in the creation of a talisman amulet is enhanced through Kosher, traditional parchment and the skilled work of a rabbi. In combining parchment purified in holy water, the power of the words and traditions of Jewish Kabbalah, and the blessings of the rabbi, these amulets hold a transcendent power that can drastically change the life of the wearer.

Written talismans include Solomon signatories, as well as virtues and sayings that have a positive influence on the life of the wearer overall.  Purified at the Western wall, written, signed, scrolled, and packed, the talisman amulet can be used for a number of different purposes. Those seeking success in an upright, moral career may use an amulet to achieve promotions and protect themselves from vengeful or impious coworkers.  Business owners may wear an amulet to generate a larger client base, create better products, and protect themselves from competitors. 

Those who may suspect they have been cursed can use amulets to remove negative energy, as well as to protect themselves from future forms of abuse like black magic and the evil eye, as well as from outside supernatural forces. The talisman can also be used for general good luck and success, along with guidance towards what you desire.

Kabbalah amulets and talismans are not a practice in superstition or drawing out evil spirits. Rather, it is using the knowledge from the Torah, along with practices in meditation and devotion, to attract positive energy and engage in the supernatural through Jewish traditions.
