WE ALL NEED MONEY, HONEY.
A couple weeks ago I shared with y'all some suggestions for items for a self love altar space. Today is all about abundance, prosperity, and MONEY. We all need it! A lot like the other altar post, please take my practices as loose suggestions - all work you do is personal. Folk magic is flexible due to the fact our ancestors had to use what they had on hand. Your intentions as well as your actions to improve your situation are most important!
For my abundance altar I whipped up an easy batch of lucky green rice, a quick money drawing oil, and a fixed 7 day candle. I am also utilizing a Rose of Jericho, Frankincense Myrrh Mint Mist, and some $$$ drawing crystal allies. I always burn incense on my altars and will most likely use cinnamon sticks + frankincense and myrrh resin.
Unfamiliar with lucky green rice? Rice symbolizes not going hungry, fuel for your body and worldly pursuits, wealth, and prosperity. There are so many variations on green rice recipes so I used a few different ones for the framework and made one of my own.
White Rice (Don't use instant rice.)
Green Food Coloring (I used mica because I have a lot that I use for coloring products.)
Frankincense Myrrh Mint Mist
A shredded $1 bill.
Cinnamon + nutmeg.
While making my rice (and candle) I focused on my wishes for financial abundance, increase, and recited the 23rd Psalm (verses 1-6.) I am not religious but came up in the church and recognize the power of words spoken from the bible with conviction. Use whatever words feel right to you! Always remember this is your work, on your behalf!
- "I am a money magnet."
- "Money flows to me easily."
- "I have plenty of money for the things I need and want."
- "I deserve prosperity and new opportunities for wealth."
- "I give thanks for all I have and all that I receive."
I topped it with an abundance herb blend, gold glitter, and gold flakes. (Before I light this I will push back the chunks of herbs so they don't catch on fire. If they do, they do- won't be the first or last time. I keep my candles in bowls of water and keep a close eye on them for about the first half hour they burn. Once the herbs are in the wax it's not that big of a deal.) You can add a petition paper under your candle, write with Sharpie your desires on the actual glass, or just speak aloud what you need to come into your life. All very personal choices.
- Frankincense + Myrrh
Herbs Used: Chamomile, Calendula, Clove, Nutmeg, Cinnamon, Peppermint, Lemongrass, Bay.
There are many commercially offered money drawing oils available but I prefer to make my own. I use the essential oils + carrier oil because I can make something on the fly and don't have to wait for an oil to infuse over time. Just my personal preference!
I offer an abundance crystal set and I like to keep these either on my altar or in my purse when I'm in financial need.
- Green Aventurine - Good luck. New opportunities. Lightening up about money.
- Pyrite - Attracts wealth and reminds you that you are worthy of receiving.
- Honey Calcite - Removes old ideas about your relationship while attracting good fortune.
- Tiger's Eye - Success. Willpower. Motivation. Opens fresh pathways to wealth.
The Frankincense Myrrh Mist is an all natural money magnet! Mint hydrosol is combined with a host of cash calling essential oils! Each bottle also contains three small tiger's eye for extra potency. I spray my money, checks, $$$ candles (unlit,) crystals, purse, and self with it!
I'll be lighting this candle and starting my work on Thursday since it is an auspicious time for attracting money into our lives.
Ritual and manifestation has many faces! This post just outlines some ideas + items I utilize in my practice. Use items you have on hand, research what resonates with you, and always remember that you are the creator of your unique path. I hope these suggestions were helpful!
