We can all do with a little extra time, money and sanity during the holidays. While I may not be able to assist much with the time or sanity, I can offer you some help with the prosperity aspects.
I have crafted a simple, yet effective, charm/ornament to be hung on your tree to aid in garnering the prosperity you may be looking for. I have include instructions below.
The supplies needed are:
- Two (2) Cinnamon sticks
- Green ribbon
- Silver or Invisible Thread
- Gold Coins (you can find these at import or craft stores)
- Hot glue gun
Using the glue gun, glue two large cinnamon sticks together. It works best if they are both the same size.
Once cooled, glue one end of the green ribbon to the end of the cinnamon stick. Wind it around the stick as many times as you like. With each wrap say, ” I invite prosperity into my life.” When you’ve wrapped it to the end of the stick, cut and glue.
Thread the needle with the silver or invisible thread. Run the thread through the hole in the coin leaving a tail. Run the thread through the hole again but this time create a loop to tie off the thread.
Run the needle through the first wrap of the ribbon then through the ribbon itself. Pull up the thread, leaving the coin dangling – you can let it dangle as long as you would like. I kept it fairly short. Make a knot in at the end once you have the length you desire. Cut the thread and move to the next wrap.
As you sew, visualize your home and wallet being filled with prosperity. If you have something specific in mind – perhaps you need money to pay a bill – visualize the exact amount coming to you. Repeat this visualization with each coin. You may also say what you want out loud as you visualize.
Once you’ve finished the coins, add some cloves under the ribbon wraps. Cloves are another wonderful prosperity herb and they smell fabulous as well. You may also want to add some gemstone chips which correspond well for prosperity and money, such as jade or amethyst, or glue on other small decorations to the ornament.
When you are done with your ornament, don’t forget to attach a hanger so you can place the ornament in your tree. A simple loop of the ribbon hot glued to the back works quite well. You may also use fishing line or invisible thread.
When the ornament is completed to your liking, hold it in your hands or place your hands over the ornament. Picture the ornament bringing great prosperity to your home and loved ones. See it filling with energy. When you feel the ornament is filled and ready, hang it upon your tree. If you don’t have a tree, don’t worry. Hang it on your front door, in a window, above your mantel or over your altar.
May your holidays be filled with love, joy and prosperity. Merry Yule and a Blessed Solstice to you and yours.
