Since I was a little kid, I dreamed of becoming a witch, of casting spells for prosperity and creating magical abundance, of manipulating the events of the universe… preferably without warts on my face.
Now that I’m full-on adulting, I get to embody those dreams although they’ve unfolded in different ways. Most of my witchiness is me just showing up in the world as my best self every day and grounding myself with a series of rituals to tap into the well of trust in the universe.
My magic is looking inward and outward at the same time. It’s about receiving advice from muses, teachers, loved ones, inspirational figures, and ultimately my own intuition.
Whereas in the past, I’ve turned to witchy practices mostly in times where I’ve felt powerless and in dire need to receive, now my practice is built upon a foundation of gratitude for my existing power.
We’re usually not googling our way to “magic spells for wealth and prosperity” when we have an overly comfy savings cushion and a fair and sufficient stream of income coming to us.
We seek spells for wealth and prosperity in the moments we’re caught up in feelings of lack and scarcity, nearly begging the forces greater than us for a quick taste of abundance to keep us safe and sane.
I get that desperation, that “I’ll try anything!” approach. And, yeah, sometimes witchcraft is a cop-out, an easy way out of taking practical responsibility for the things for which we are responsible.
It’s a lot easier to make a wish while blowing out a candle than it is to send a proposal to a client, a resume to a dream employer, or a call to your parents. Hence, let’s just find spells for prosperity and get all metaphysical.
But witchcraft is way more powerful as a supplemental practice to doing the practical work than just casting spells alone.
My advice? Learn my simple and practical money management systems and do the work to create a secure financial foundation to build your dreams on top of. And then, seal the deal with some magical spells for wealth and prosperity.
Besides, as I’ve been honing my magical craft (which is more quantum physics than hocus pocus), I’ve found that casting the spell is easy; believing in the magic is what’s hard.
And it’s so hard to believe in cast spells because we have common sense. We ultimately know that there’s a microcosmic possibility that we could win the lottery but it’s not something we’d bet our life savings on.
A safer bet would be knowing that if we managed our time and energy differently from what we’re doing now, we could create what we desire. And that’s when it gets easier to take control and do the work than it is to leave it up to whatever universal source co-creates your life with you.
The magic is what grounds us to believe in ourselves and our potential. It’s not about lighting a candle or carrying a crystal in the hopes that things work themselves out independently of our practical contributions.
Here, I’m sharing my personal wealthy witchcraft for prosperity to help you believe in the process of your efforts even when they’re not unfolding in the way you had initially expected.
My Practical Magic Habits For Money Management
Cinnamon and chamomile are wealthy herbs. I drink a large mug of chamomile tea every day (mostly to manage my nerves, but hey, dual-acting!) and occasionally I’ll steep it with a cinnamon stick when it feels like my cash-flow is leaning too heavily towards the outgoing side.
I keep a basil and a thyme plant on my terrace with pennies in the soil. (Seriously, what else is there to do with all these pennies I stash in my piggy bank?) Generally speaking, plants are just good to grow around the home because they cleanse the air and these herbs smell amazing. Cooking with these herbs is another option if you’re just not feeling the whole green thumb thing.
If you’re up to the task, nurturing a plant is really just a matter of consistently watering it which is great practice for any habit we’d like to make more consistent. This process is even more when you start from seeds or seedlings – change doesn’t happen overnight… until suddenly you check on your plant and it does!
I also surround myself with the color green. I wear it, I decorate with it, I write with a green marker, I light green candles, I eat my leafy greens. Green also represents the heart chakra which is all about healing, harmony, and abundance.
Surrounding yourself with money both physically and mentally is another great wealthy practice. I have $5, $10, and $20 bills hidden around my home (note: NOT in pants pockets) in places I’ll forget about until later. You know that feeling when you unexpectedly find some money? Yeah, that’s a great reminder that money is all around us even when we don’t see it.
When I’m feeling a heavy dose of the scarcity lacks (which are all just a matter of perception and relativity), I’ll go whisper sweet nothings into my piggy bank’s ear. I don’t fall into the trap of thinking “Ugh, money is the worst. Why do I need it?!”
Instead, I tell the money I have in my wallet, my bank accounts, my piggy bank, my couch cushions, that I love it very much and I’m grateful for it to be in my life as it is. Literally. I hold it (or look at my virtual money) and say “I love you. Thanks for being here. Invite your friends. Everyone is welcome.”
I’m a fire sign so whenever I work on money stuff, I light a candle. Sometimes that candle is green but it’s mostly just the flame that matters. Use whatever elements light you up. (No pun intended.)
I also keep some citrine and pyrite on my desk as I work and maybe a piece of amethyst if I need to make some money choices. Crystals have a lot of overlapping qualities, so again, just use what calls to you if a bunch of rocks even call to you at all.
I’ll also light incense, usually a patchouli blend. If you’re reading that and thinking “Ew, that’s the worst scent ever!” the key here is that you pick a scent that you’re attracted to and that you associate feelings of wealth and prosperity with it.
And that’s ultimately the most important thing: YOU are in power here. You can buy all the herbs, crystals, candles, etc. and they won’t do anything if you’re not also doing the practical work to manage your money.
Cast the spells, and then do the work.
Set financial goals and monitor your progress. Make a plan to save money or pay off your debt and actually put your money towards those things. Pay your bills on time. Hone your ideal sources of income. Spend your money on what is important to your highest self without stretching yourself too thin.
Besides statements and spreadsheets alone are boring. Why not be a witchy weirdo with your statements and spreadsheets… AND your herbal tea and a makeshift altar. The choice is yours!
