Mojo Wishing Beans are sometimes called African Wishing Beans or St. Joseph’s Beans and are used to make wishes. Choose an odd number of beans and make a different wish on each one. Carry them in your pocket for seven days and on the seventh day, throw them over your left shoulder into running water and don’t look back. Doing this is said to make wishes manifest in seven days.
Suggested magical uses for Whole Mojo Wishing Beans:
Carry Mojo Beans in a mojo bag for good luck.
Leave them on an altar dedicated to St. Joseph and give them away for good luck.
