On a Thursday during a waxing moon (like today), light a green candle near a picture or statue of Lakshmi, the Hindu goddess of wealth, abundance, luck, and inner and outer beauty. (The best place in your home for this would be your gratitude/prosperity area. If you don’t know where this is, visit this post.) If you wish, you can also add shiny coins or rose petals to your mini-altar. Say a simple invocation prayer, such as:
Lakshmi, your bright spirit reminds me of my gratitude for all that I already have. I call on you to continue to infuse my life with ever-increasing abundance. I thank you for surrounding me in the golden, magnetic light of luxury and beauty, and for rolling out the red carpet of auspiciousness and plenty beneath my every step. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Blessed be. And so it is.
