This talisman will be hand-crafted AFTER the order is placed. No stocks are kept, and every talisman is created with the person who ordered it in mind.
One of the ways to connect meaningfully to the Night Protection Talisman is to engage in a quiet meditation while holding it in your palm. There is no single "right" way to meditate: reciting a short prayer, a verse from Psalm, or focusing your thoughts on family and loved ones that you strive to protect are all good choices. For more profound immersion, you may also choose the following meditation, created by Rabbi David Cooper*, which relates to the powerful symbols of the Night Protection Talisman:
Try to find a quiet place where you will not be disturbed for 20-30 minutes. Close your eyes, relax your body, and breathe normally. Allow your attention to focus on the experience of your body and the movements of your chest and stomach around your breath.
Let yourself imagine that you can feel a presence along the right side of your body and the right side of your face. it can feel like a subtle pressure, a tingling, a vibration, heat, coolness, or some other sensation. If you cannot feel anything, simply think that something is next to you, almost touching you on the right side.
Give this experience on the right side the name of Michael, often viewed as the messenger of G-d. Be with this experience for a while.
When you are ready, let yourself do the same thing on your left side. This is the archangel Gabriel, the emissary of G-d's strength. You can experience both sides simultaneously. Stay with this experience for a while.
Allow yourself to sense something behind you, anywhere along the back side, particularly supporting you as you are sitting or lying down. Imagine this is part of what is holding you up. This is the archangel Raphael, generally know as the healing power of G-d. Now you can do all three simultaneously: Michael, the messenger, on the right, Gabriel, the strength on the left, and Raphael, the healer supporting you from behind.
Next, with your eyes still closed, imagine a light is shining ahead of you, in front of your face. Allow it to be as bright as you can. This is the archangel Uriel, the light of G-d. Now you are surrounded on four sides: a messenger, strength, healing, and light.
Finally, imagine a huge, benevolent cloud of light hovering above your body. This is the Shekhina, the feminine presence of G-d. Allow the light of the Shekhina to slowly descend, surrounding you with love, enveloping you with tender protection, cradling you in the softest, most peaceful state of mind you have every experienced. Surrounded by angels, you are also in the arms of infinite kindness, absolute security, and safety.
If you are in bed, this is a wonderful way to drift off to sleep. If you are sitting, stay as long as you wish in this state of mind. When you are ready to end the meditation, however do not get up too abruptly. It is much better if you are able to reverse the process.
