Pineapples and Prosperity
In Singapore, there is a fascinating tradition that Chinese people who reside there engage in called “Pineapple Rolling.” Newly-minted homeowners, before first stepping foot into their new home, roll a pineapple into the house. As the pineapple rolls along the floor, they shout the phrase “huat at!” — a Hokkien phrase that means “to prosper.”
“Luck Coming Your Way”
This is because pineapples are intimately tied to the energies that yield prosperity. The Chinese word for pineapple even hints at this association, as it sounds curiously close to a Chinese word that means “luck coming your way.”
Attracting Prosperity with Pineapple
To finalize the ritual, the owners are not to consume the pineapple but instead place it under a tree to encourage the continuation of their prosperity. This is one way to entice the winds of prosperity with pineapple, but not the only way.
Pineapple Sachets and Incenses Draw Wealth
Dried pineapple makes for excellent sachets and incenses that can draw wealth to the home and encourage financial gain. Likewise, once you’ve finished cutting your pineapple, you can turn the pineapple crown into a plant that attracts good fortune to your home.
Give the Gift of Prosperity
For your friends and loved ones, consider gifting them cakes and desserts that include fresh pineapples. This will extend the blessings of wealth and prosperity to them as well.
Personal Power and Pineapple Fruit
“Be a pineapple. Stand tall, wear a crown and be sweet on the inside.” -Kathryn Gaskin
This quote has found its way onto many t-shirts and apparel for good reason. It is a motivational mantra that takes the pineapple fruit, studies its attributes, and then turns that into actionable advice.
Exude Confidence Like the Lofty Pineapple
Consider the pineapple fruit, how it towers proudly and unabashedly with its lofty crown. You, too, can exude such confidence if you hold your head up high and acknowledge your power. But don’t forget to temper your confidence with kindness and gentleness.
Pineapple is Ruled by Fire
There is so much about pineapple that resonates with power, strength, and poise that it’s hard not to be inspired to embrace these attributes when studying the plant. Pineapples are ruled by fire, the same element that rules the boldest and most self-assured signs of the zodiac — Aries, Leo, and Saggitarius.
The Sun and Pineapple
Pineapple is also ruled by the sun, our luminary. In astrology, the Sun represents our ego and sense of self. It is our outward expression and the identity that we put on display for the world.
The Essence of Life and Vitality
The Sun is a force for unbridled power, vigor, and exuberance. In understanding pineapple’s relationship with the Sun, we see that pineapple similarly exudes a powerful presence with its stout yet tough appearance. Meanwhile, the fruit contains the essence of life and vitality in its ability to nourish us.
Pineapple and Spiritual Power
But remember, power is not only physical but spiritual. You can be stoic and commanding on the outside, but if your strength within is wanting, even life’s most minor pressures can unravel you.
Pineapple is Tough on the Outside, but Sweet on the Inside
Not even pineapple makes that mistake. On the outside, it is equipped with a tough skin that protects what’s within from anything that would threaten its quality. However, once you break its shell, you see what’s worth protecting as you discover the sweet juicy flesh that vibrates with the color of the Sun itself.
Pineapple is a Reminder to Empower Yourself for Within
Spiritual power is psychic power. It is your ability to perceive things unseen that nevertheless affect you. Without spiritual power, you cannot glean divine wisdom or act from a place empowered by love and compassion.
Spiritual Power is Strength
It is essential to strengthen your spiritual side, not only for practitioners of the divinatory arts or those who relay messages from the divine, but to properly function and survive on this planet as a human being.
Harnessing the Magic of Pineapple
You can easily incorporate the magic of pineapples into your life in myriad ways. First of all, consume it! Pineapples are one of the most delicious fruits on the planet, and many delicious recipes incorporate pineapple, so this task shouldn’t prove difficult. Not to mention, pineapples are replete with nutritious benefits alongside magical perks.
Eat Pineapple for Your Health And Confidence
And remember, nutrition doesn’t just mean vitamins and minerals. We nourish ourselves by consuming the energy that pineapple contains as well. So prepare for your next job interview or presentation where you need that extra dose of confidence by starting your day with some sliced pineapples or a glass of pineapple juice.
Pineapple-Themed Charms Can Remind You to Stand Tall
Pineapple-themed charms, trinkets, and decor can also help inspire pineapple’s energy, even if they’re not its natural form. A necklace etched in the form of pineapple or pineapple ornaments and decor around the house can all remind you to stand tall and walk proud.
Pineapples Are An Emblem of Hospitality
Use pineapples to welcome a friend back from travel, as it is an emblem of hospitality. Serve pineapple at celebrations to encourage happiness among the guests. Pineapples baked into desserts and then shared with a loved one can encourage devotion, and sharing with friends can strengthen the bonds of companionship.
Pineapple Crowns Make Excellent Houseplants
Pineapple’s crown makes an excellent and magical house plant, and this plant can be gifted to friends or loved ones to help them heal from past wounds and grievances or as a good luck blessing.
Symbolic Meaning of Pineapple
Pineapples are symbolic of hospitality and warmth. They express the sentiments of “welcome” and have been used traditionally to decorate door knockers, quilts, and other objects that let a friend or guest feel well-received. This tradition gets its roots in the Eastern Seaboard and Southern areas of the United States.
Pineapple Used to Welcome Guests
Due to the rarity of pineapples in the 18th century, their cost was quite expensive, and only the affluent could afford them. Wealthy hosts would often serve pineapples to guests to welcome them. Pineapples were carved into buildings, mansions, and government edifices to convey this feeling.
Pineapple’s Amazing Health Benefits*
Pineapples have fantastic health benefits. They are high in fiber and contain plenty of vitamin C, which can help fight off cough and cold. Pineapples also contain Bromelain, which is a cough suppressant and can help loosen mucus. A cup of pineapple contains 73% of the daily requirement of manganese, which can help with bone health.
The Origin of Pineapple
Pineapple’s exact location of origin is unknown. It is believed to be native to a region near Central and South America and the Caribbean Islands, more specifically, where Argentina, Brazil, and Paraguay meet. After being discovered in these areas, Pineapple seeds were traded and traveled with merchants during the 16th century to areas such as Hawaii, countries in the Pacific, and the Eastern Seaboard.
Interesting Facts About Pineapple
