I gotta fess up: I’m pretty darn sure I found the original version of this in one of those obnoxious “spells for every day of the year” type books. But this one made me laugh and it stuck in my mind…and since I live in the Pacific Northwest, I get ample opportunity to practice it. And you know what? Not long after I do, I usually come into a small chunk of money I hadn’t anticipated receiving. It’s never been much–$10 to $50–but usually enough to treat myself to something fun.
Whenever you see a rainbow in the sky, grab up a golden dollar coin or a few pennies and go outside. Face the rainbow and hail it by saying something along the lines of “Rainbow, rainbow in the sky, your pot of gold do I espy, so bring it to me on the sly.” Raise up a bit of energy by chanting the rainbow’s colors (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet) and clapping your hands, dancing, or spinning in a circle with increasing speed until you can’t go any faster. Throw the coin(s) into the air and again hail the rainbow and say “Rainbow, rainbow in the sky, your pot of gold do I espy, so bring it to me on the sly.” Watch the rainbow fade, then return to what you were doing.
The rainbow’s crafty leprechauns will soon throw a little unexpected money your way.
