At all times and in all places, humans have constantly surrounded themselves with objects to which they have lent and still lend magical powers. The list is numerous: gri-gri, talisman, amulet, stone, crystal, wand, pentacle, anthropomorphic or zoomorphic statuettes ... There are as many objects with sacred powers as there are civilizations.
When it is made by a shaman, a sorcerer or a magician, the object is then sacred, that is to say charged and invested with a precise intention, a particular energy, favorable for its owner.
Starting from the postulate that everything is energy, the power emitted by an object exceeds the simple placebo effect for the following reasons: - any object, organism, substance, by its atomic nature, constantly emits quantifiable (measurable) frequencies (frequency signatures), among others in the electromagnetic spectrum; - a magnetic field, a bombardment of particles, any energy modification (such as heat) modifies all these objects and their spectral signatures. This is also quantifiable. Therefore, the energetic charge carried out by a shaman, sorcerer or magician makes a modification to the object and this modification is, again, measurable.
Besides the energetic influence of an object, the belief of the one who wears and uses it will consolidate and / or modify his neurological paths, thus influencing the functions of his organism, his attitudes, his behavior and consequently his environment.
