The Celtic amulets are probably the symbols most used inside the white magic due to the enormous power that the same ones possess. How well we know most of the cultures they rely on with different typical symbols which represent so much his destination and his origin like also the values, beliefs and traditions.
In case of the Celtic amulets we must say that the same ones represent a sacred geometry for this culture; the principal qualities that we can mention there is the power to neutralize to the darkness and in turn to generate the sufficient energy so that this one generates an ambience adapted to purify the soul. The Celts as for his amulets, demonstrated to be the creators of the most beautiful designs which principal idea was centring basically on the spirals, which, according to the druids, represent to the life.
