Talisman Project

i had a dream. when i woke, the only image i could recall was a grid pattern. within that grid, there were purple and lavender gladiolus, razor blades and small, round, smooth stones. this stayed with me.


a few nights later, in another dream, it seemed to come together:

i was hand painting blossoming gladiola stalks on razor blades. i would then make a small drawstring pouch which i would place the razor blade and one or two small stones. these were talisman made for people who had requested them.

dream talisman of steel, flower and stone

when they were given their talisman, they were to either bury in the earth or throw them in a deep body of water.

it wasn’t until i spoke with a spiritualist that it started to make sense. gladiolus symbolize severing ties, whether it be emotional, psychological, physical, cerebral. gladiolus represent the sword.

the color purple symbolizes imagination and spirituality. it allows one to introspectively examine our inner thoughts and come from a place of integrity.

the razor blade is a symbol of strength, of defending against people or ‘other than’ who mean one harm.

stones represent solidity, stability and being grounded.

together, this becomes a talisman and a way through. a way to break an unhealthy tie in ones life. a way out. a way to sever a destructive tie or bond.

would you like one?
