Bay leaves (bay laurel) are really well-known for many purposes, and they were really significant in ancient Greece. Highly placed people were even given crowns made of golden bay leaves. You might have seen this in old movies or on traditional college robes. All those presentations are true, and explain how special a bay leaf is. On this note, I will teach you how to use bay leaf to attract money.
But first, there are three main reasons bay leaves are so famous. First, they add a nice flavor to food—almost every kitchen around the world has bay leaves. Second, they are good for your health—they help with stomach ulcers and digestion problems, ease arthritis and muscle pain, and are even useful for keeping bugs away. The third and most interesting reason is their use in magical rituals, which is the focus of this guide.
Since old times, bay leaves have been thought to keep bad luck away and help to manifest money. The traditional method for this has been ‘burning bay leaves’ at home to attract money as well as positive energy. I have gathered some of my bay leaves for this article, which I will burn to show you how to do it.
What is Bay Leaf Manifestation for Money?
Bay Leaf manifestation for money is a simple spiritual practice used to attract financial abundance and prosperity.
Let’s say you burn a bay leaf with a strong intention for money; you may attract it quickly and in surprising ways. If you get a feeling or a hunch, follow it because it might be a sign from the universe. Let’s say you want to attract $150. You write $150 on your bay leaf, and then you get invited to a dinner. At the dinner, your bill is $150, but someone else pays for it. That’s like attracting a $150 with bay leaf indirectly. It’s not always direct cash; it could be someone paying for you, giving you a gift, or buying something you wanted. It can happen in many different forms.
How to Use Bay Leaf to Attract Money
I am showing something that I do really often. You are going to come across a lot of guides about attracting money with bay leaf but these are just not practical at all. They have probably shared the correct methods, but typically, those are hearsay. I am going to share the real deal with you so after this guide, you should become a money magnet, and manifest money with bay leaf on your own.
1. Burn a Bay Leaf
This is the main method I have to share with you. So, I’ll kind of focus on the whole stuff here. You need to get some things ready. So you’ll need a marker pen (but I prefer a Sharpie) and a bay leaf. Tweezers are helpful too to grab the leaf when burning—you don’t want to burn your hands. Don’t forget a lighter for burning the leaf. You also need a bowl for the burnt leaves.
Determine how much money you want to attract or your financial goals. Maybe you need a specific amount, like $70 for a phone bill. Write the amount on the bay leaf.
If you are not after a specific sum, but more like daily financial comfort, write something like your name, birth date, and a wish for a comfortable daily income. You can also write words like ‘abundance’ or ‘prosperity’, or just draw dollar signs, whatever feels right to you.
As you can see above, I wrote ‘abundance’ on my bay leaf because I want more than just money; I want abundance in my life every day. I also put three dollar symbols ($$$) or maybe more.
Write what feels right to you. Then, take your lighter and start burning the leaf to ashes.
While burning it, think happy thoughts and imagine your wishes coming true. This act of burning the bay leaf to attract money sends your intentions, wishes, or goals out to the universe, along with the energy of the bay leaf and your thoughts. It’s a simple yet beautiful ritual. Just let it go and that’s all you need to do.
Put the ashes in any bowl. When the leaves are all burnt and turned to ashes, you can take them outside.
Some people put them near their house entrance or on their plants. Let the wind carry them away, or just leave them there.
So, you’ll wait and see what comes to you. I hope the universe is able to receive energy from your fist, and everything turns out alright. This will take a bit of time since attracting money with bay leaf works like planting a seed.
When the money from bay leaves has been manifested, there are actually different ways you will receive it. Let’s say you are attracting a lot of money for a down payment or rent for an apartment. Sometimes, the universe works in amazing ways. For example, you might find an old lady who needs a roommate. She’s lonely and just needs a bit of help around the house. You could end up living in a beautiful place for a great price, with just one roommate who does her own thing. This is just one of 3 money-magnet ways you can indirectly attract money.
2. Keep Bay Leaf in Wallet
I’ve put a bay leaf in my wallet too, and it works! There is this old trick for bringing in money where you write what you want on a bay leaf and then keep it in your wallet.
You leave it there for the first month of the new year. If you are looking to get more money, just put a bay leaf in your wallet or purse. But first, write the amount of money you hope to get on the leaf, like 100 bucks.
You can also write things on it that are about getting rich. Moreover, if you want to keep attracting money even when you are sleeping, just slip the bay leaf under your pillow while it’s still in your wallet.
3. Bathe with Bay Leaves
Collect 10 bay leaves and put them in hot water. Let them sit there for 4 days. After the fourth day, bathe with this water. This will attract money, good luck, and success—so you are like getting multiple positive benefits at the same time.
If you have a specific wish, take a green or blue marker, write your wish on a bay leaf, and burn it. Then, blow the ashes on your body after bathing.
You can do this whenever you want.
4. Put Bay Leaf in Your Shoes
I didn’t think a bay leaf in a shoe could work wonders until it happened. My wife put some bay leaves with money symbols (just as I have taken time to explain above) in her shoes to bring in more money. Just 3 days later, a friend surprisingly gave her $100. She told me she needed new bay leaves because the old ones fell apart and she thought they didn’t work—funny that. I reminded her that she got the $100 unexpectedly on the same day the leaves fell apart. So, it actually worked! What do I mean? Even fallen bay leaves work but once you sense that the power is no longer there, you bury it and get another.
Bay Leaf Plant Spiritual Meaning
Traditionally, the bay lead plant is seen as a symbol of wisdom, protection, and peace. The story goes back to the old tales about Greelod Apollo, who was the god of seeing the future, healing, and writing poems. There is a legend that Apollo really loved a nymph named Daphne. To avoid Apollo, she changed herself into a bay tree, which you often see in Greece. When Apollo found out, he said the bay tree was special and started wearing a crown made from its leaves to remember Daphne. This way of remembering turned into a tradition. People who won in battles or sports in ancient Greece and Rome got crowns made of bay leaves.
It’s interesting to know that the words baccalaureate and poet laureate come from this old tradition. Baccalaureate means getting a reward for finishing a bachelor’s degree (like getting berries from a laurel tree), and poet laureate is a title given by the government to someone who writes poems for big events. So, the Bay Laurel tree, as ancient as it is, has become a lasting symbol. Nowadays, people think of the bay leaf and the bay laurel tree as the same thing.
These are the top 4 working money magnet methods on how to use bay leaf to attract money, wealth, and other material things you want in your life. I have also noticed that bay leaves start working slowly, similar to how a seed takes time to grow. So, you ‘must’ be patient and keep faith for it to work. I find this really fascinating! I’ve always done it myself and it’s amazing. When it becomes less effective, I replace the leaf, bury the old one, and occasionally water it. So, that’s it for preparing your mind before you get into the simple steps I have explained here. You won’t get rich with bay leaf; it only helps to bring you abundance for your bills, and a little bit more. Be patient and just don’t give up on it working.
