On this date in La Paz, Bolivia, begins the monthlong celebration of Alasitas. The main figure honored during this event is Ekeko, a god of abundance. Ekeko is depicted as a man carrying money and household items related to abundance. If presented with wheat, he provides a good harvest. If he is presented with money, the household will prosper.
Miniature items are sold at the festival. These items are exchanged as gifts to bring specific types of abundance. It is believed that if you are gifted a miniature version of something, you will get the real object sometime the following year. Create a simple statue of Ekeko decked out in symbols of the wealth you already have or the wealth you wish to manifest. Miniatures are found in almost every hobby store. When Ekeko occupies a place of honor in your home and with appropriate intention, riches will come your way.
