Effective Power / Road Openner

Effective Power. (The somewhat ‘T’ shaped side) Power is power. Or is it? I can jump up and down on a 300 pound stone, and be applying power (force) to it. And not much happens. I can take a big long board and smash it with all my might onto that stone and again, not much happens. But if I find another stone to use as a fulcrum, and wedge the board over the fulcrum and under the stone I seek to move, now I am onto something! As Archimedes famously said: “Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world”. This is effective power in a nutshell. This talisman is intended to assist in finding the levers and fulcrums needed to effectively apply magical energy in the places where it will be the most effective, and then applying it!

Road Opener (the eight-armed side). This collections pieces all share a sigil, one that I created for Road Opening. Road Opening can be thought of as the foundational piece of magic that allows/helps all others to manifest. This is easily visualized by thinking about getting on the highway, and hitting traffic that moves at a crawl. Soon, your vehicle (or magic, or self) is blocked in front, and as more cars arrive at the blockage, behind you. You’re stuck, or at least moving very, very slowly.

Road Opening work is like the emergency services folks getting the blockage out of your way so you can move forward again easily. But it also has other aspects, the largest in my opinion is Optionality. When we have more options, more ways forward, more available possible pathways towards what we seek, we can choose the ones that are most suitable for us in the moment. Perhaps there is an easier way than that which we have thought of, or perhaps a more effective approach. Road Opening work clarifies these options, and hopefully allow us to wisely choose the ones that are best for us in our current situation.

There are a vast array of spirits and Deities who operate in the liminal spaces we often call ‘crossroads’ in magic: Ganesha, Woden, Hekate, Hermes - these beings all have aspects that can assist with Road Opening. All of the (physical) sigils for Road Opening were worked for more than a month on my altar for that work before being soldered into these talismans.

As a two-sided piece, this item is not hallmarked as sterling silver, as I am unwilling to choose a face to damage with the hallmark!

Being entirely hand crafted, each piece is unique, so even pieces based on the same design have significant variations and are one-of-a-kind.

Pendant measures about 1.25" (32mm) in diameter x .135″ (3.2mm) thick, weight is right around 16 grams/ .6 ounces.
