Talisman: Head, Heart and Ground

This is a Talisman that I made for my brother Jim on his 50th birthday. It is made of three large glass beads, stainless steel wire, and leather. The talisman empowers the actions of the wearer by connecting our Head, Heart and the Ground of Reality.

  • The top Head bead symbolizes intelligence, reasoning, logic, skill and knowledge.
  • The middle Heart bead symbolizes wisdom, openess, compassion and loving kindness.
  • The bottom Ground Of Reality bead symbolizes truth, faith, hope, realization of the union of life and death, the understanding of the interdependence of all things, and insight that all time (past and future) and all space exist in the here-and-now.

The connection between Head, Heart and Ground is what the power of the necklace is all about. Living our life with our Head and Heart working against each other is disastrous.

  • Many times our Head wins and the Heart loses out. We experience success, but we feel empty inside.
  • Sometimes the Heart wins out over the Head. This leads to impulsive acts that do not make sense in the big picture.
  • When we lose connection with the Ground Of Reality then we wander without direction and purpose.

However, when all 3 are connected and working together then we act with generosity, discipline, patience, energy, clarity, and wisdom. Our life has purpose, meaning and direction and we positively affect everyone around us.
