To all of these questions and some others we will answer in this article.
What types of amulets and talismans are and how to wear them?
Let's start with the most important - with definitions. Often, the words a Talisman, amulet and Talisman as synonyms, but it is the wrong approach. The shades of the meanings is quite significant.
So, the mascot - magical object, whose function is to the Medium during the production of the desired force situations. A mascot can be used for the production of happiness, love, improve the financial prosperity, attractiveness and so on. The language of computer games: +10 to Charisma, +100 to health.

But with each mascot must be treated separately - often, talismans, amulet, i.e., the protection, which we describe below. For example, images of crosses, Solar signs, the pentagram as a part or basis of the mascot to protect from the negative attention of others.
