Even if the News doesn’t realize it, there are still a lot of people who are suffering and struggling everyday. For some the only hope they have is that 1 lottery ticket. Hope can carry you through one more day, over one more hurdle and help you face the day to come. It doesn’t matter what the reason, but that ticket is all they have.
This was reinforced for me this week when I posted a comment on the Old Farmer’s Almanac about using green grapes around your garden to keep slugs from eating your flowers and veggies. Another person replied “I can’t afford grapes for myself, much less slugs”. A lot of people know how that feels. I do, things were really bad for us after the recession.
When I pick up a ticket, my family and I light a candle together and say a little prayer to my friends the Faeries.
Faeries Bright, In Faery Light..
Here’s our numbers, please make them right.
(read your numbers)*
We’ve struggled hard with all our might.
Please pull all our numbers and end this plight.
Take us out of this hardship and fight.
We give our thanks for your help tonight!
Blessings to everyone who is still in that state of struggle.

My friend Rev. Lyn Williams sends out a reminder every month on FB to Write Your Abundance Check.
I think many of us could use this, so I’d like to share it with you. It’s a great way of putting your hopes, faith, dreams or desire for abundance into physical action.
I love Rev. Lyn’s ritual, but I did change it a little to implement some Pagan specific perspectives. If you need some abundance in your life, give it a try. You’ll find the full step-by-step ritual here: Sunday Homily: Writing Your Abundance Check.
You can visit Rev. Lyn’s website and learn more about her at The Woman Exec. And follow her on Facebook where she shares some wonderful insight and suggestions to make positive changes in your life.
Watch your finances today. Don’t spend more than you have and on things you don’t need. While you’re not the only one suffering right now, you can make things worse by going over budget or having no budget at all. “Things” don’t bring happiness. But financial accountability can bring security and peace for a worried mind. Plan your finances for the next week carefully. Don’t give it all away! What energy you set up today will carry through the next several years!
Today’s message carries through the weekend and underlies the energy of next week. So be cautious about your finances!
It’s ok to try to help others in need, but when you do so at the expense of yourself or your family, you’re not doing anyone any favors. You can’t give it all away and hope that when you have a need that others will be there for you. Sadly not everyone is as compassionate and generous as you.
Be careful who you talk to and who you share information with. Some that you may have thought were friends that you could trust, may selfishly try to take advantage of you out of greed. Don’t let them disappoint you by holding them up to your expectations. Many won’t meet the mark. But remember that sometimes it’s ok to be selfish (when you’re quiet about it), and when you’re faced with self preservation! If you don’t speak your mind today, if you don’t runaway and hide your worries in the purchase of ‘things’, you’ll be ok in the long run. This is a time to be patient and plan for the marathon, not the sprint.

Everyone hopes to find abundance in their life. Be it financial, health or something else. One of the biggest requests I receive from people is a prayer or spell for financial abundance. This is one of my favorites. But you can modify the dream line to be what you need or hope for.
Faeries Bright, In Faery Light..
Grant our wishes on this night.
Send your magik in a loving beam,
That we may win the jack-pot dream.
Bring us financial security on this eve,
so we can finally feel relieved.
Help us dance in joyous glee,
as we give our thanks to finally be free!
And in our joy we give our thanks,
to home and hearth and the faery ranks!
So It Is and So It Is Done.

A quick example that works well for financial issues:
Since I’m here in the U.S. I would choose a green candle for financial matters as it represents American currency. You can use the color that best represents your view financial currency in your country.
Using a special ritual knife, draw on the side of the candle. I carve a $ -sign, if the candle is large enough I write a phrase or need.
Include your personal sigil (a magikal symbol for you).
When it comes time to light the candle, say the prayer and see yourself holding what you need in your hands as if you already have it.
Visualize yourself using the financial means to do what you need it for, whither it’s paying a bill, buying a new car; paying for a class or getting a business license to start your own company. See yourself putting the money to good use.
Hold that image for however long you wish concentrate. Make it at least a 5 minute meditation moment, or a full hour to delve deep into how this money will help you. The more you visualize the positive actions of your request; the more energy you will put forward to bringing into reality.
