I chose to consecrate an amulet (my necklace)

This necklace I haven’t worn in a long time, and honestly I haven’t worn jewelry in a long time other than for very special occasions. But why shouldn’t I wear necklaces that I own, and make them meaningful and important to the goals in my life? This necklace is on a long silver chain and is a pendant with a labradorite stone. My intention for the consecration is for good luck, strength, and transformation.

This consecration used the cardinal directions and the elements to activate the amulet. I will be wearing the necklace non-stop for at least five days as the ritual suggests.

My previous seven day career spell has already been bringing me some luck (some future side work), so I’m hoping for continuing luck, strength, and transformation with this amulet. :four_leaf_clover:

I love Money Trees @Jeannie1 ! Here is one of mine (I have two).
It’s been doing especially well and healthy this fall and winter. I’d say it’s about 3-4 ft. tall and about 3 ft wide. I repotted it this summer. I did a full cleaning because it was getting really sick last spring and summer and lost many leaves and became yellow and sickly. I removed all the soil and washed the roots down and gave it a bigger pot, fresh organic soil with some fertilizer and kept on top of watering. And six months later, it has really bounced back! Now it just has to bring me that money luck! :money_mouth_face:

I chose my lucky number from what everyone else rejected. It has served me well. Maybe I was good luck for # 13.

My lowly acorn is to be my Lucky Charm. I have not put much faith in Luck or fortune or fate in my life, but looking back on my life I find it may have had more influence than I had first believed. To leave ones life to fate make one apathetic and lazy. Not taking responsibility for ones future. Luck is like waiting for fate to show itself. Fortune however is what one makes it. My lowly Acorn may bring me some luck. I cleansed and made it sacred. Did the Prayer to Fortuna. Added my Jade for health and it being green perhaps a good omen for increased prosperity.

Who knows, maybe Luck will grace this old man. I will do a jar in a bit to help with my fortune in general. :pray: Love to you all and may good fortune find us all. :silver_heart:

@BlueAngelite
Thank you for the tip, I look forward to repotting my money tree! I want to bring it back to life, I’ll just go and buy some fertilizer for her! I appreciate the advice about washing the roots I’ve never heard about doing this before. You really have a green thumb :+1: I saw a sighn it was funny it read “I’m excited to wet my plants” :potted_plant:
I hung my horseshoe up! It’s in front of door for good luck :four_leaf_clover:

So I decided to go with telling y’all about some of the luck related things I remember from my Grandmother and the mostly crazy things I do to directly bring good luck or to avoid bad.

Things I learned from my Grandmother before I knew anything about anything.
Always keep bells on the front door.
If you cut a fresh Christmas tree and there is a bird’s nest in it, you will have good luck and blessings for the coming year.
There was something about Cardinals and good luck but I only remember that she told me, not what she said.
She also felt that her street number being 77 was very good luck.

Now some of my bits of craziness.
NEVER run out of salt.
Shoes are not to be ANYWHERE but the floor. A good rule in general but I truly believe that bad things will happen if shoes are anywhere else. If I find shoes anywhere but the floor I frantically put them on the floor and almost subconsciously do a deep breathing, all is calm kind of thing.
It is good luck to put your right shoe on first. I’m a little obsessive about that one.
Drinking glasses are to be rinsed 3 times before use and if you go over then it’s 9. I’m pretty sure I’ve been doing it longer than I’ve known the numbers meant anything.

I like your rainbow acorn! Cool! Did you color it, or did it come that way? I bought a set that open like that, too, in memory of an ABC After School Special- Cinderella- style story. So far, I haven’t done anything with them.

It came that way. A 4 piece set from Amazon. I thought an acorn would be appropriate for my Earthy type practice. :sweat_smile:
