Creating a Money Altar
So you say you want more money in your life (and your pocket!) Well one step in that direction is a money altar. This is a step I use in my home and work and is also recommended by Catherine Yronwode of Lucky Mojo fame.
There are an infinite number of ways to construct your altar. Here is an opportunity to let your creativity fly. You don't have to spend a lot of money to create your altar, however I believe the more you put into it over time, the more you get back.
You will need a flat surface to place your altar items on. This should be a place where cats, kids and other people are not likely to disturb your sacred space of abundance. The bigger the better, I say, but whatever space you have will work. Make sure the space is clean and you might even want to go as far as using some white sage to energetically clear the space. Plus it's just a great way to set the mood for creating your new sacred space.
First, the foundation. You can place any type of cloth (sarong, hankie, scrap material, etc...) that says "WEALTH" to you. You can also paint the surface gold or green. Get creative! Next you place your items on the altar in any way you see fit. I will give a list of possible items below. If you have a suggestion to add to the list, please email me. Feel free to send me pictures of your altar too. I love to see people's creations.
Lodestone w/ magnetic sand
any type of "play" money
Lucky Hand Root
Nan Kwoc statue
Maneki Neko statue
St. Martin Caballero candle, holy card or statue
St. Expedite holy card
any money drawing oils
gold dishes to hold items
tiny cash register
Oil lamp filled with green lamp oil and pyrite
Chinese golden carp figurines
actual paper money (sitting under your lodestone)
candles (7-day jar candles, prepared money drawing candles, green or gold candles)
And remember to tend to your altar. It is a living thing, not some decoration to gather dust. Light your candles and say the 23rd Psalm. Add money when you can and give thanks. Give your lodestone some food (magnetic sand.) Your altar will need cleaning also. Perhaps on the Summer & Winter Solstices.
