Yesterday I talked about little ways to maintain your spiritual practices while feeling overwhelmed with life’s other demands. I briefly mentioned kitchen magic.
Now, I’m not an expert. There are probably kitchen witches out there who would laugh at me. Anyway, here’s something I did this morning that you could do.
Say you have a lot of demands coming up but you have one day to yourself. Take a few minutes of that day and prepare of pan of muffins for the rest of the week. I used a very basic mix from the local company North Country Farms, local eggs, organic milk, olive oil, and organic blueberries (grown in the USA!). Not to sound like a broken record, but I always promote using local and/or organic products. Mindfully selecting your ingredients is a huge part of my magical practice.
Once your ingredients are mixed, add some energy. I call upon the Two Powers and let them flow through my arm into the batter. I stir sunwise and focus on what I need. If I have a busy week coming up, I might focus on energizing myself despite the demands. This morning I focused on happiness and relaxation. It’s summer vacation and I want to promote those traits as I come off my busy period.
Other things you might focus on:
* healing (in tea, soup, stews, tinctures, homemade smoothies, etc)
* happiness (birthday cake, wedding cake, etc)
*fertility (tea, wedding cakes, mixed drinks, a compost mixture for the garden, etc)
*dreams (tea, mixed drinks, warmed milk)
*relaxation (tea, anything with tryptophan)
* luck (cakes)
* strength (foods containing protein or carbohydrates, hearty meals, etc)
These are just some ideas or examples of things I’ve done. Do you do kitchen magic? Any tips for someone learning about the topic?
