Ghost hunting and talismans...do they work for protection?
Believers in the power of charmed talismans to ward off dark spirits might use them during ghost hunting as a form of protection. However, like charms and amulets, the power of such jewelry is not really in the object itself but truly lies within the mind that believes in the power of the object, and in the process, does not yield to fear. Fear allows people, even negative ghosts, to take control over other people. Be strong of mind and maintain control - if a talisman helps one to do this, then its use is good.
