Rice Charm for Money: A Prosperity Ritual

, , ,

Peace be with you my friends!  I am extremely busy with my yearly fall activities and am planning a massive ritual for All Souls' and All Saints' starting on the 31st.  I just wanted to take this time to share a prosperity ritual that I have used a recommended for many years, the rice charm for money.  It has been posted on my website for over two years, but in case you've missed it, here it is!

You may use this charm continuously.

This an old Southern Hoodoo charm for drawing wealth that my friend Glenda taught me in the late 90’s when we  worked together in a restaurant.  One evening we were washing and preparing rice to serve with gumbo and shrimp Creole, and she spontaneously told me of this old custom from the American South meant to bring wealth and success.  Interestingly, rice is also a symbol of wealth and prosperity in many Asian and Middle Eastern cultures with its many grains symbolizing abundance.  In Iran, there is a saying that grains of rice are beads of sweat fallen from the brow of Allah himself.  I have used Glenda’s rice charm and recommended it to others ever since.

You will need:

A tea cup

Uncooked Rice

Coins of all denominations

First, take the tea cup and place a layer of rice on the bottom and then add a few coins and cover them with more rice.  Continue the process until the tea cup if filled to the top and then place it either by your front door or on your spiritual altar.  You may also choose to keep it in your place of business to attract customers and increase profits.  It’s as simple as that!

The idea behind this powerful charm is that rice is a symbol of abundance and wealth and that as the humidity in the air swells the rice, so will your income grow!  Also, if you would like to attract love as well as money, you can dye the rice with red food coloring before placing it in the tea cup with the coins.  You may use this charm continuously, but it is advisable to change the rice once a year.

You may also wish to burn a green or gold candle next to the rice cup from time to time to give the charm an added kick.

    Thank you sir……

  • Tricia

    I love the simplicity of this charm,Thank You for sharing, I have a small business, that has been dropping lately and has been causing me great distress. So I will try this. Is it effective a any time or on a full moon per say??

    • It’s definitely worth giving a try. I’ve seen it work well for many people, myself included. Since you’re doing it for your business, you might also want to put your business card or a piece of paper with the name of your business written on it in the rice. This will help draw clients to your business as well as general money into your life.

  • I just came upon this by accident and was reading you comments. I like the fact that you answer people. I am going to try this rice tea cup.

    • It’s definitely worth a try. I’ve seen it work for many people, myself included!

  • Foah Festus

    Mr . James I am Festus from Ghana. If I decide to burn the candles, what should I do to the wax. I want to try.

    • Hi Festus. Thank you for commenting. You can pray over the candles before you light them and anoint them with any oils and herbs you may have for specific purposes and when they are finished burning, just dispose of whatever wax may be left.

  • Foah Festus

    Mr. James, I salute you. I have prepared the charm and my store is very open so I decided to put it in a small box and hide it at a corner in the shop. Will that one too work? I want to know.

  • Sharda

    Thanks for sharing this. Can I cover the container and keep , or should it be kept open.

  • Alicia Cuffy

      • Alicia Cuffy

        Good I went with basmati rice. I also added money oil to it so rice is a little green and white like the color of money..this was very enjoyable to do . Thanks so much

  • Miriam

    Hello. What brought me here was the dream i had this morning. I dreamt a feminine entity left a brown candle and a small glass of uncooked white rice in the balcony, which my mom found and brought to my attention. This was in the home i grew up in. What does it mean!??? Brown candle and rice grains placed together… Is this a ritual? What for? Please help. The night before i dreamt if a blue owl that came into my window n sat inon my couch. In real life lady bugs keep popping up in my home, in my car, at bbqs… This has never happened before. I cant shake the feeling that some message is behind it all. Blessings? 🙂 please help.

    • Hi Miriam,

      Thank you for being in touch. Lady bugs are a sign of good luck and wishes being fulfilled. Also, rice is a symbol of abundance and the color brown represents the Earth from which abundance and prosperity come. I would take these dreams as a sign that some unexpected luck is about to come your way. You could make an offering of rice and a brown candle if you’d like to your personal spirit guides and ancestors. It’s possible that they are asking for it via a dream.

  • audrey

    Can anyone make this charm;and is it wise for me to do it in a house that I don’t own as I am renting the house.

    • Hi Audrey,

      Anybody can make the charm and it’s perfectly fine to do it in a home that you rent. It’s your living space and is filled with your energy. I know many people who rent apartments who have made the charm with great success.

  • Hey,sir my name is michael just want ask how many days or weeks or months the green or gold candle should be burnt

    • There is no general rule. You can burn the candle as often as you’d like. Once a week would be a good idea, especially on Fridays.

  • Abbey

    Just got to know of this ritual,am trying it out right away. I hope it will bring some relief to my financial troubles. Thanks for sharing it.

  • becky

    Hello Sir! I really wanna give this a try, but I don’t stay alone(stay with my mum and siblings) neither do I own my house. I am from Nigeria and we don’t spend coins so I’m thinking, can I make use of notes instead of coins? If yes, can I put it under my bed so that no one can tamper with it?


    • You can definitely use banknotes and putting the charm under your bed is fine. It’s definitely worth giving it a try!

  • Nikki

    Can monopoly money be used in place of or in conjuction as well or no?

    • Honestly, I would avoid it. To make the charm with monopoly money would have the implication of drawing false wealth into your life. I would just use spare change for the rice charm. If you want to use “fake” money in a ritual, I would buy some spirit money or joss paper and burn in for your ancestors and ask them to bless you with wealth and prosperity.

  • Mojah Wise

    Thanks for sharing….I wanna know Is there any rules for the one performing the rituals to follow before and after and or during the time the ritual is being performed. Like for example alcohol, sex, or anything considered unclean which will affect the effectiveness of the ritual. I really wanna know. And also what do u mean by a layer of rice…is it a single grain or just rice to fill the bottom before the next steps. Thanks so much.

    • Thank you for your comment. Before performing the ritual, you may want to take a salt water bath or cleanse yourself with florida water just to make sure you’re spiritually clean, but other than that there are no rules regarding abstaining from sex or alcohol. A layer of rice just means rice to cover the bottom of the container.

      • Mojah Wise

        Thanks so much for the advice. I really appreciate

  • Cathy

    Hi I’m planning to put it on a side table at the center of our rented flat which is i believe the fortune center in the bagua map. But I’m afraid that it might not be that effective because next to it is a wall and a toilet behind it. Is it also advisable to place a luxury looking mirror on that wall and a rice charm underneath.

    • It should still definitely be effective in that position. I’m not sure about the mirror. I don’t think it would hinder the efficacy of the charm in any way though.

  • Sandy Marks

    Hi my name is Sandra and I want to do the rice ritual not quite sure when you say teacup I have some glasses and a few mugs glass mugs can I please use that the layer the rice and I only have American coins would that be okay

    • You can use any kind of cup or container and it will work just fine. American coins are fine. That’s what I use. 🙂

  • Sandy Marks

    Thank you very much for replying back I did place it in a clear glass coffee mug and I placed it next to my stuff that I have believed in from my business should I leave it there all the time should this rice and coins ever be changed or just leave it alone

    • That sounds perfect. I would just leave it there indefinitely. You might want to change it if the rice becomes dusty, but otherwise it’s fine to just let it sit there and release its money drawing energy.

  • Anderson Ovoukerie Amieno

    Hi my Name is Anderson am from Nigeria,sorry sir I live with my parents and siblings,can I hide it in my walldrope and also what color of candle can I use. May I use banknotes instead of coins?

    • Hi Anderson,

      You can definitely hide the charm in a private, secure location. You should use a green color candle, but if you can’t find green, a white candle is fine. You can definitely use banknotes instead of coins or a combination of both.

  • Joan Perry

    hi sir ,am joan from nigeria, i just wanna ask is there no way to do it without coins cause where am living coins are not easily gotten

    • You could use banknotes or even just write a dollar or euro sign ($ or €) on a piece of paper and place it in the rice. It will work just fine.

  • Maricar Cañete

    Hi sir, can I use any jar instead of tea cup..!
