Magick in the kitchen?
« on: August 29, 2013, 02:22:18 pm »
I was just curious how many of you use magick and/or prayer work in your cooking, daily routine, etc.

Personally, I tend to send out little prayers doing even the simplest things, like while stirring my tea, wiping the crumbs off the counter or even making a pan of brownies. Usually, I am asking that my family be kept safe, healthy, and happy.

Sometimes if we're experiencing particular family or personal issues I'll contemplate those while cooking or cleaning and recite a spell or pray while asking for guidance and wisdom. I might even add a certain spice or seasoning to a meal in hopes it might help the "cause" I am working on.

I guess what I do is considered to be on the folksy side of spell work.

I just wondered if anyone else does anything similar.

I do a lot of that.  I have a little blessing I say while stirring my morning coffee.  Kneading bread is another thing that brings chanting out in me, or any kind of cooking that requires long bouts of stirring (like making gravy).  If I am really making food as a work of magic, I will bless and charge ingredients as I add them, focusing on what I want them to bring to the mix.
