I’m trying to blur the line between the mundane and the magical in my home. To this end, I’m thinking of getting pet fish, one of each color of the spectrum, to inhabit a modest tank, which is to be a microcosmic representation of my sphere of existence. I intend to consecrate and empower each fish as a living talisman, through which the spirits of wealth, protection, love, etc. can shine their powers through the fish of their corresponding color, into my material sphere. As long as they live, each fish is to spiritually function like this, and the energies will (theoretically) shine into my sphere in balanced, sustained proportions.
If not fish, then perhaps decorative plants of each color of the spectrum.
I only hesitate because I don’t know what this could do to the organism. I want to avoid needless animal/plant cruelty or wasting money.
I’ve made talismans from “non-living” materia. This would be my first time to make a talisman that is still breathing, growing, procreating, and eating food to continue living in this material realm.
Has anyone here had any experience with making living talismans like this? If so, what are some of the things that I should consider when I’m making mine? What does it do to the plant or animal to have a spirit’s energies coursing through it during every moment of its material life? How do I sustain their effectiveness as talismans - is it the same or different from sustaining a “non-living” talisman?
