Tulsi historically was worshiped in India, and is still grown in a pot outside many homes today. Worship was a form of reverence for the profound and life giving properties of this plant. Tulsi is known to have a particularly large aura, and that the plant itself purifies its surroundings quite readily.
There are mantras, chants or prayers to Tulsi, including those mentioning its correlation to manifesting money, conceiving of wealth and changing perception. Tulsi is associated with the Goddess Lakshmi, who is considered the personification of wealth, beauty, creativity and opulence. (Note: You can find some of these mantras on YouTube, showing that Tulsi appreciation is alive and well in the modern world.) This link between money and a plant, introduces the concept and practice of using herbs/botanicals as a method of working with the mind, the emotions and with consciousness itself.
