This ritual and subsequent talisman is used to aid in safe, smooth travels.
What you need:
A whole ginger root - it is preferable that the root you choose have some similarities to a human form. Youll notice when shopping the ginger root bin at the grocery store that the roots come in all shapes and sizes. If you can't find one that resembles a human obtain one large enough to carve.
3 pieces of narrow yellow ribbon
A symbol of yourself or of the traveler - This should be something small enough to fit on your ginger root. Some ideas would be an earring, a ring, a small bit of clothing or even an additional yellow ribbon that you've worn around your wrist for a time prior to the ritual.
A wooden box small enough for travel but large enough to hold the root OR a longer piece of yellow ribbon that you will use to hang your root from the review mirror, shifter, etc.
This rite should be done on a Thursday.
* Did you know that Thursday is named after Thor, the Norse god of protection and thunder?
In every journey of my life, guard me, protect me, keep me safe from strife.
Dress the root with your personal symbol and tie your yellow ribbons around 3 separate places on the root; but never around the neck. As each ribbon is tied, kiss the knot and recite your mantra. All the while, make sure that you're focusing your energetic intent into the heart of the root.
Once completed there are a couple of different ways you can use your talisman. If you've chosen to use a wooden box, simply store your talisman in a cool, dry place but be sure to take it from the box and hold it prior to each trip.
If you've chosen to carry your talisman in your car, you can fashion a holder around the root's body (not the neck) with the additional yellow ribbon (always wear this ribbon around your wrist for a few days prior to the ritual) and then hang it from your rearview mirror, shifter, or whatever.
This ritual should be recast every 6 months to a year, depending on how often you travel.
