  1. 1

    Select an item for your good luck charm. It should be small enough to carry in a purse or pocket.

  2. 2

    Cleanse the item from any negative energy by passing it through the smoke of a cleansing herb such as rosemary or sage or by washing it in salt water.

  3. 3

    Call to your spiritual guides and guardians to empower the item with luck.

  4. 4

    Anoint the charm with "fast luck" oil purchased from a New Age shop or bodega. Rose, orange, thyme, vanilla and ylang-ylang oils are also thought to bring luck.

  5. 5

    Hold the charm in your hand while you visualise scenarios in which you are lucky. Keep the charm with you at all times and make a point of looking at it whenever something lucky, whether big or small, happens to you. This will reinforce your personal connection to the item as being lucky.
