|Winter can be a good time for leisure travel because there are often bargains offered during this slower travel season. Despite many modern technology innovations, travel seems more stressful now than ever before. With so much to keep track of, this added stress can take away from the enjoyment of travel or cause us to forget important items.
Before traveling, you can make and wear this charm, and use it to calm your energy when things get overwhelming. Take a three-inch square of blue fabric (silk, linen, or cotton work best). Inside the square, place the following items:
* A small hematite or amethyst stone
* A silver dime or other silver coin (an antique coin made entirely of silver is best)
* An acorn, a small pinecone, a pebble, or some other natural object taken from the vicinity of your home
* A small slip of paper with the word "HOME" written on it
Fold the fabric inward and tie the ends together firmly in a bundle with a long piece of ribbon that is long enough to tie into a necklace. Wear this charm while traveling and it will help you remain calm and focused.
