Banana’s Magickal Properties
- Resilience through change: Make yourself comfortable with change and able to pivot quickly by working with bananas! The current cultivar of banana that we know today in America, the Cavendish banana, was instantly popularized out of necessity, when the Gros Michel variety became highly susceptible to Panama disease in the 1950s. Supermarkets and the American public had to quickly pivot to a new variety of banana, as well as a new flavor of banana. Next time you need to be inspired to make a sudden change, eat a banana and set the intention that everything will be okay!
- Wealth + Increased Money: Not only is the banana nice to your wallet, but its energy can be nice to your bank account, too! The leaves of the banana can be used to symbolize money in wealth and money spells.
- Increased luck: Plant a banana plant around your house in order to inspire good luck in your household.
- Increased your spirituality: Eat bananas before embarking on a new spiritual quest to connect your energy to the universe, or carry a banana charm on your person. Because bananas grow up towards the sky, legend has it that bananas stimulate the connection to the realm above the sky.
- Increased sexual stamina in men: Once upon a time, bananas were only allowed to be eaten by men, and these phallic fruits worked wonders on increasing lust. Simply eat a banana to increase the libido, or use powdered dried banana in spells for lust and sexuality!
- Symbol for the God: The phallic shape of bananas supplies incredible masculine energy to the space, and in many cultures and spiritualities (such as in Voodoo), bananas make a great altar symbol for the God.
