Whether you need some good ol' green or wish to simply bring prosperity and abundance into your life, here's a nice little ritual I like to do to clear a path and draw in good energy.
Gather your Stones: Aventurine, hematite, turquoise, petrified wood, tiger's eye, topaz, citrine, clear quartz, lodestone, ocean jasper . Choose any combination, or just one!
Choose your candles & oils:In this ritual I use my homemade Lucky Lodestone oil to anoint my candles, but you can also use clove, cinnamon or sandalwood oil. For this one I use a plain white candle , and a money draw and dragon's blood candle from Coventry Creations.
Other tools for manifestation: Sage bundle or Palo Santo, Easy Street spray (from Coventry Creations), lucky Chinese coin, lucky key to unlock door when opportunity knocks and anything else that inspires you. A picture of the deity Lakshmi, Goddess of Abundance may be nice to place on Altar.
Set up your Space:Place any inspiring pictures or quotes on your altar; you can write a Mantra you'd like to use for your meditation. A vision board you've worked on is a nice addition of things you hope to draw into your life.
Begin by finding a comfortable seated position and take a moment to get tuned into the breath. Offer yourself a couple of seated twists to release any tension... like wringing out a wet sponge, allow the stress to dissolve with each breath. Light the sage bundle and sweep the smoke around the body and the crown of the head (caution please, watch the embers!), imagine clearing any obstacles, negative energy or belief system that may be blocking you from achieving your goal. Anoint your candles with whichever oils you chose and light them. Loosely hold a stone in each hand, resting the hands with palms face up on the knees. Palms up towards the ceiling leaves you open for reeving anything you may need. Begin to release any disbelief in your ability to be happy or draw in abundance of health, love, money and life. Allow for this prosperity to begin to draw into yourself with each breath in. Begin to fill your heart space with this abundance, only a clear path lying before you. Bring your attention to your mind's eye and envision what this abundance would look like. What it would feel like. Imagine and see it as if it were already here, already true. Take all the time you need here to set your intentions, draw in abundance and manifest what you want to draw into your life. If you wrote down your Mantra option to take it with you throughout your day, returning to it when you need.
Some mantra ideas for you if you need one:
Lakshmi Mantra for Abundance "Om Shrim Mahalakshmiyei Namaha" (OM-SHREEM-MA-HA-LAKSHMI-YAY NAMA-HA) (we typically repeat Sanskrit mantras 108 times, but as many as you feel comfortable with, either aloud or to yourself)
"I am abundance. I have the power to clear my own obstacles and draw the prosperity I seek to myself."
