kitchen witch

 

The kitchen is a magickal place! One of the first forms of alchemy was cooking. Think about it: when you prepare a dish you are taking a combination of ingredients and combining them to create something entirely new. That’s what alchemy is. So simply baking a loaf of bread is a magickal act!

I love it when I combine ingredients and see them magickally change before my eyes into something delicious and nourishing. Different foods have different magickal energies and they affect us both physically and energetically when we eat them. It pays to be aware of what you put into your mouth, because you could either be helping or hurting yourself in more ways than you might imagine.

Different foods relate to the different chakra centers in our bodies. For instance, salt, nuts and grains relate to the lower chakras and can be very grounding. Each chakra is associated with a certain color, and the color of a food is often an indication of the chakra center it relates to. The table shows the chakras and their colors, so eating blueberries might help the energy of your third eye chakra.

The following link is to a site with a comprehensive list of the magickal properties of foods: Alchemy Lab. It’s interesting to look up some of your favorite foods and see how they relate to you energetically!

When preparing a meal or whipping up your favorite comfort food, it is a good idea to follow a few witchy procedures to add just the right energy to your cullinery creation. First, light a candle at your kitchen altar. You do have a kitchen altar, don’t you? A kitchen altar doesn’t have to be big or elaborate. Mine is on the window sill over the sink. I have a small lunar tealight holder that I light whenever I am about to cook a meal. Near the candle holder I have placed some small goddess related items and I have a tiny vase where I keep fresh flowers. As I light the tealight, I ask for blessings that all will turn out well, and that positive energy will be added to the food for those who eat it to enjoy.

If you want to, you can get yourself a magickal apron or or special wooden spoon (ie, kitchen wand) and really go all magickal! I found a cast iron pot that I love to cook with. Of course, it’s my cauldron, and people seem to be drawn to it when they visit my kitchen.

When combining your ingredients whether in a bowl or a pot, it’s common procedure to stir in a clockwise or deosil direction. The clockwise direction is the positive, increasing direction, sort of like the waxing moon. Stirring this way you can visualize adding goodness and deliciousness to the recipe. Remember, it’s all about your intention!

I am adding a new page to this blogsite called The Enchanted Kitchen where I will post some of my favorite recipes and their magickal properties. Stop by often to see what I am cooking up!

 

Blessings,

Sarina
