Tam’s Tips: Bringing Prosperity Into Your 2024

Tam’s Tips: Bringing Prosperity Into Your 2024

Happy New Year! Can you believe it’s already 2024?! 

Most people go into a new year with a bevy of feelings ranging from excitement for a fresh start, to fear of letting go of the past year. So whatever YOU are feeling as the calendar rolls forward, take the time to give honor to it. 

Another thing most people focus on when a new year begins, is the bringing of more Prosperity their way. So I’m here with a fresh batch of Tam’s Tips (some of which may sound like tough love) that hopefully can help you do just that. But before we go there, let’s talk about the meaning of “Prosperity.”

When one hears or says the word prosperity, 9 chances out of 10 it’s in reference to having money, and overall financial freedom. And yes, that is definitely one aspect of prosperity. Heck, even our dictionaries describe this word as being characterized by attaining one’s financial goals. 

But at its deepest, most true meaning, the word “Prosperity” means to be in a state not only of having plenty of money—but to be in a state of wholehearted SUCCESS. That means one is truly thriving (not just surviving), flourishing (not floundering), and blessed with overall good fortune (not feeling jinxed). That means that prosperity isn’t just checking to see how much is sitting in your bank account. It means taking all of YOU into account. 

How’s your health? Mental, physical, & spiritual.
How’s your wealth? Are you living paycheck to paycheck, comfortable, or high on the hog?
How’s your attitude? Can you see blessings in the small things? Beauty in the dark things?
How’s your gratitude? There is always SOMETHING to be grateful for.

If you cringed reading any of these questions—that is where the work needs to be done first and foremost if you want to bring more prosperity into your 2024. Because when you are healthy, can afford your chosen lifestyle, can protect your peace, live with an open heart and mind, AND have an attitude of gratitude each and every single day—you my friend are not only favored by Lady Luck, but prosperous beyond measure!

But to be honest, most if not all of us have at least one of these to work on this year. And even the ones who have reached this level of overall success have to keep putting in the work to maintain their prosperity. So if it feels like you’ve got a long way to go, trust me, you’re not the only one. It’s not about being at the prosperity finish line. It’s about taking positive steps everyday towards it. 

Remember the Law of Attraction:
We reap what we sow and we draw to ourselves what we most focus on!
It all starts with you and your view of what prosperity means to you.
Then becoming more prosperous depends on what work you are willing to put in plus what sacrifices you are willing to make.

Next is actively acknowledging and being truly grateful for the blessings and successes you have, while staying open to receive more (meaning staying humble and hungry, not gloated and greedy).
Finally, regularly reassess and repeat!

As in all things craft path related, YOU are your strongest tool for making sabotage or manifest in your magick. And while there will be some things outside of your control, for the most part how successful you are in 2024 will depend…on you.

And there are plenty of magickal things you can do to enhance or amplify the magick that is you!  Some of my personal favorites include:

*Opening all doors and windows (if you can do this safely) and sweeping out the energy of your home, car, or office with a besom. If the energy of the space feels “empty” or “flat” after, I like to bless the doors and windows with holy water and sea salt to welcome good spirits and to recharge the space. Traditionally this is done on January 1st, but my elders taught me that this can be done anytime it seems needed.

*Burn a Bayberry scented candle during the first week of January to draw prosperity into your life. (If you need help finding these, I do make them btw.)

*Step outside on the 1st of the year (or any first day of the month) with a few pinches of ground cinnamon. Turn and look back into your home, car, office, etc. and gently blow or sprinkle the cinnamon across the threshold. Cinnamon has long been believed to draw success, health, and money towards the user.

*Commit within the first half of January to yourself that you will work on whatever needs to be worked on to bring more success into your life. Then take one piece of this puzzle at a time. Note that this is not the same as making a New Year’s Resolution! Resolutions are just thoughts. A simple decision to either do, or to not do something. Commitment is an act of dedication and the taking of action. A heartfelt promise and obligation.

*Eat something healthy at least once a day, every day of the first week. This sets the tone and may lead to long term healthy choices that in turn leads to physical prosperity. 

*Say “Thank you,” at the start and end of each day. To your higher power(s), to your pet(s), to a person, or to yourself. For something. Just so long as it’s sincere. The more gratitude you have, the more you will discover you are grateful for. The more grateful the more blessed. The more blessed, the more prosperous. 

Thank you for taking the time to read this installment of Tam’s Tips. I hope they help you become more prosperous as you charge into a new year. May your 2024 be overflowing with many types of blessings of Prosperity!
