Ancient Egypt is one of the most mysterious places on earth. Filled with ancient languages that aren’t fully translated, the marvel of architecture that created the pyramids that to this day, we still have no idea how they managed to build them, and the mysterious objects that lay in each pyramid simply leave us speechless. And, although it’s a marvelous place, as it has been since ancient times, you might be wondering, “Why Egypt?”

We were inspired by Ancient Egypt’s culture and their very different perceptions of wealth. Although the people were split into classes, prosperity was a term that had a very different meaning back then. 

They had two different types of wealth and prosperity that they acknowledged: individual and collective. 

Prosperity is only an instrument to be used, not a deity to be worshipped.

Calvin Coolidge

Collective wealth and prosperity was usually based on the fertility of the land around the river Nile. Depending on whether or not they reap enough fruits from Mother Earth or not, they decided whether that season would be prosperous for the entire community. If there was more than enough food to go around they would consider that year or season to be prosperous for everyone, and if not, they considered that everyone would live in poverty for the season/year. For ancient cities such as Egypt, food was a primary concern, however, only in Egypt it was considered as collective wealth and prosperity. 

The second type of prosperity and wealth that they had, was individual prosperity which was a factor that divided them into classes. However, they didn’t have money, and they didn’t stack on gold and silver like other nations did. In fact, they had no concept of money, until the Greeks introduced it to them later. So, which people did they classify as wealthy? 

The people they acknowledged as truly wealthy were people that showed off their status through charms, talismans and jewelry which they wore. Furthermore, they also considered people who had furniture created by rare types of wood, specifically imported. The rarer the wood, the wealthier the person was considered to be. Besides that, the wealthy Ancient Egyptians always used specific incense, oils, baths, and took good care of themselves and their appearance both in public or privately.

To be satisfied with a little, is the greatest wisdom; and he that increaseth his riches, increaseth his care; but a contented mind is a hidden treasure, and trouble findeth it not.

Pharaoh Akhnaton

As we dug deeper and deeper into the Ancient Egyptian traditions, we were truly delighted to learn of their approach on the meaning of true prosperity and wealth. Through their history, they created a lot of rituals and spells for prosperity and abundance, however their spells don’t come from a place of greed, but rather from a place of love. They had many traditions and rituals for both collective and individual wealth, but in the end they both either came from love for their community or self-love.

Egyptian Abundance Ritual:

We will be creating a sacred place of prosperity this month!  Please be sure to find a place in your home that you can perform this activity and where you can leave your items out to pull some magic to you.  If you have an altar or sacred space set up already, this is the perfect place to proceed. You will need enough space to light three candles, three incense cones and lay out your jewelry and place your pyramid.  

  1. Setting Up The Atmosphere With Incense

    It’s very important for each ritual that you work on to tune your thoughts, emotions and energy towards the goal in mind. If your mind wanders during your rituals, you will never be truly able to convey your true intentions to the Universe. It’s important to focus, to be mindful of the energy and thoughts you have during these rituals, because creating your own magic comes from you - there is no one else! However, sometimes even though it’s the right time to perform a ritual, or you are in need of help from the Universe, you might just not be present, or you might not feel like the ritual will be successful. And that’s okay gorgeous! Because we always have your back to get you in the right mood for any ritual you perform. Like every ritual we create, it’s time to set the right atmosphere for attracting prosperity!

    We suggest a special trio of incense for this Egyptian prosperity ritual. Although you can use them separately, we recommend that you light all three and combine the aroma they emit to truly envision how an ancient Egyptian ritual was set up and performed. Ancient Egyptians above everything else, even above social status, valued purity. Which is why they always took good care of their hygiene and they always used different scents in everyday life and in their ritual work as well. Even today, when pyramids are being opened, the most common objects that are discovered are different scents. We suggest these three:

    1. Place the three incenses in a straight line in front of you. Place them from left to right in the following order:

      1. Precious Rose - First, light your Precious Rose Incense. Rose increases compassion and devotion which is perfect for helping you truly devote yourself towards achieving prosperity through this ritual.

      2. Myrrh - Then, light Myrrh next. This is one of the most common scents used in Ancient Egypt. It was used in different rituals, because it was believed it was a strong purifier. Perfect to use to clear out any pesky vibes that can turn your thoughts away from the prosperity ritual.

      3. Amber - And last, but not least, light Amber. Amber helps in balancing and aligning the energies within you, calming down any turmoil of emotions, and awakening a new sense of healthy self-confidence. 

    2. Now, close your eyes and take a few deep breaths. Let the created ambiance take you away, and carry you through an energetic shift, to prepare you for the ritual. Take deep breaths, and focus on the energy vibrating within you.

    3. Then, open your eyes, and before you place each item in the following order, make sure you place it above the smoke of the mix of the three types of incense for at least 10 seconds to ward off any unwanted vibes, and start your ritual on a clean slate.

  2. Garnet Pyramid - Pyramids have always represented an important part of our history. Even from ancient times, long before the pyramids in Egypt, they have been used in various rituals all over the world. And, it’s no wonder because pyramids can collect energy from the Universe, and then distribute it in their surroundings. They are a beacon that harnesses energy from the Universe that can help you to create your own damn magic.

    It’s a unique energy signature, gives off a serene, peaceful frequency that envelopes you and nourishes you, while slowly grounding you and helping you to stay in the present moment. Once you program your Garnet with your intentions, it amplifies the energy and sends it out into the universe, helping you to achieve prosperity and wealth in all aspects of your life. To use your Garnet Pyramid:

    1. Hold the pyramid in your open palms. Make sure you are holding it about chest height. Then take a few moments to observe your pyramid. Notice every nook and cranny. Then close your eyes. Feel the Garnet Pyramid vibrating, and focus on the energy it emits. Take a few deep breaths before you continue to the next step.

    2. Place your pyramid behind the incense, and make sure you leave some space between the incense and the pyramid because your will be placing more items between the pyramid and the incense. 

    3. Now holding your pyramid close to your lips, whisper “Abundance” directly into the pyramid three times.  Once you are finished, you can lay your pyramid down next to the incense.

The vibrancy of the green color signifies serenity, harmony, growth, nature, and prosperity which makes the Green Mini Ritual Candle perfect for attracting prosperity and wealth rituals as well as achieving abundance in every aspect of your life.

  1. We suggest to light three candles for three types of prosperity. Just like the Ancient Egyptians had two types of prosperity they cherished, you should also focus on different types of prosperity in your life. You can focus on any type of prosperity when lighting your candles, even if it’s just for attracting some extra cash. However, we suggest that as you light each candle to focus on these three types of prosperity (one per candle):

    1. Abundance Of Health (Health of the mind, body and soul)

    2. Material Prosperity (Cash, opportunities and moneyyyy)

    3. Global Prosperity (Peace, balance and global love)

  2. Remember, this is the time to soak up all the prosperity the Universe will send back through your pyramid. You need to really focus, and say it out loud if it helps you to bring yourself towards ultimate focus. What you send out now, will get sent back! Try to remember the last time you felt truly abundant in these areas of your life and allow that feeling to run through your body, lighting your heart up with joy. As you light each candle, make sure you place them from the left towards the right. Place two candles on the sides of the pyramid, and one in front of it. Don’t forget to use the Green Mini Candle Holders to keep them upright.

  3. Now close your eyes, and focus on the energy around you. Feel the small shifts in the air, and the way the energy the Universe sends out towards you interacts with your body. Breathe. Focus on your breath.

  4. Once you are ready, open your eyes and focus on the flames of the candles. We suggest to let the candles burn down before taking everything apart. However, if you feel like it’s taking too much time, you can diminish the flame of the candle using wet fingers. Never blow out your candles when setting intentions with them!  Just remember to repeat the entire ritual before relighting them.

    We hope you love this ritual! Let us know how it goes!
