There is a popular belief that rubbing the belly of the Laughing Buddha brings wealth, good luck, and prosperity. In Japan, the Laughing Buddha (Hotei) persists in folklore as one of the Seven Lucky Gods (Shichi Fukujin) of Taoism. According to I Kuan Tao, he represents many teachings, including contentment, generosity, wisdom and open kindheartedness.
Beeswax candles are the best of the best of magical tools. While the superior burn of beeswax is useful for any type of work, the honey-imbued wax is especially perfect for sweetening up a situation. These artisanal beeswax figural candles are individually witchcrafted at the Parlour of Wonders and are 100% pure beeswax with no fragrances, essential oils or herbs added.
The Laughing Buddha is used to bring luck and happiness to any area of your life.
Use the candle color that aligns with your spell’s intention:
- Red for passionate love
- Pink for romance or friendship
- Black for banishing or protection
- Green for fertility or prosperity
- Blue for tranquility or reconciliation
- Purple for power and mastery
- Yellow for fame, success or happiness
- Orange for opening up opportunities
- Brown for legal matters or fidelity
- White for blessing or any other purpose.
A simple, but very effective, candle spell using a figural candle is to scratch your wish on the Buddha’s belly using a knife or nail. Apply an appropriate spiritual oil for your intention in an upward motion to the candle speaking your wish as you do. Place the candle on a tray or dish and then light the candle to send off your intention.
