We had a store in front of our house before when my son was still a toddler . The container where the money from the sales stayed had a piece of calamondon (calamansi). Since it is sour, my mother believed that our store would attract more customers; ergo, more income. We also believed in that. This morning while I was boarding in a jeepney, I told my sister to buy any unripe citrus fruit and give it to our brother for his cash register or where the income will be kept. There is nothing wrong with doing what our mother believed in. I also suggested that my brother should place some sweet foods at the altar. It is to give thanks for the sales they had on the first day of the opening of his business. I guess we are doing what our late mother practiced for the success of our brother's business. Do you have some practices as regards business is concerned?

Last Christmas, I copied the beliefs of my Aunt. Like putting some chocolate coins and money on top of a uncook rice bowl.

@m_audrey6788 , there are many my friend, but they seem diminishing as technology swiped them all.Meaning humans in the generation of my country began to labor some facts that those beliefs brought generation to generation may not be real.They are just a mere fabrication of fervid imagination, lol.

Actually I do and if I am not mistaken I took it from old French lore using a citrus fruit to cajole opportunity; however the lemon must be hung in a door way of any room connecting to another room, so that the energy of opportunity itself can be evoked. I add a self-fulfilling mantra that is nourished by a wave of positive vibrations I gather from the winds of change that pass every thirty to 31 days each month Has your ritual been successful ?

I don't, but I hope all these will reassure your brother, it can be calming to practice what your Mom did.

Does it really work? Do you ever notice an increase in your income after believing in doing that for your business?

Do you believe in "patedted" ritual. They say before the start of the building of the house or business, or before the opening of the store you must sacrifice a chicken or pig and let the blood drops around the edifice of the business-- to shoo away the bad luck including the bad spirits. Did you do it also?
