There are many people out there that want prosperity, but rather than sit around and let it fall into their lap- there are those that would rather find it themselves. After all, there's nothing wrong with a little audience participation... every now and then. Right? Now, imagine that there was a fantastic feathery creature that could lead you to these untold riches, while you slept and/or while you were in the waking world. Then you have need of The Bird of Paradise or the Alicanto that will guide you to wealth- whether it be literal treasure or simply in the right direction with business ventures or investments. Traditionally, the Alicanto is a South American avian spirit- or in some cases- will possess a bird in the physical realm to make its presence known. During the day- the Alicanto resembles any other bird that you see or could be any bird, but at night that average/ordinary bird will begin to transform into the magnificent manifestation of the Alicanto in its true form. During this time, the Alicanto will be a large black bird and an unearthly golden glow will emanate from its wings- and its eyes will shine with an eerie intensity. Now the Alicanto will be your beacon in the darkness and illuminate your path to hidden wealth.
This piece will draw the Alicanto to you and make it easier to summon his abilities. There are 2 ways that the Alicanto can be invoked to assist in finding your buried "treasure". The first method occurs in a dream state, place this item on your nightstand while you sleep and you will have an almost out-of-body-experience and see the majestic Alicanto in your dreams and he will psychically show you the location of the hidden treasure that you seek and when you awake- you will go to that site and claim your riches or make the wise money decision that you were instructed to while you slept. The second method is recommended for only the most adept and or adventurous- while holding the piece during the day, look around at birds in your immediate vicinity- if you manage to catch a glimpse of an amber-coloured light from beneath the bird's wings or see the bird's eyes flash intently- then you have discovered the Alicanto before it undergoes its transformation into its spiritual true-form. The Alicanto may or may not lead to the cache you're searching for while- the sun is out, but once the dark time falls- the Alicanto metamorphose into its ethereal state and show you where the riches lie that you wish to find.
