The Basics Part 1

So you want to make good food with magick and you don’t have a large budget to do it on? Well you have come to the right place!  Let’s start with some things you need to know and use to begin making part of your routine immediately.  First, always start with a clean workspace.  A cluttered, dirty kitchen is just a breeding place for illness.  So do the dishes, clean the stove and oven, wipe down all the counters and prep space.  To ensure the bacteria is gone you can use cleaning wipes with bleach or a water/bleach solution in a spray bottle.  I use one capful of bleach and fill the rest of the bottle with water.  After cleaning everything with a cleaning agent (soap, cleanser, etc.) spray a light mist over all the workspace and allow to air dry for at least 30 minutes before beginning any new projects.  Be sure all the bleach/water solution has all dried, you don’t want your food to taste like bleach.  Next, make sure your hands are clean. Wash them thoroughly with warm water for at least two minutes, and scrub up to the elbows.  I know that seems excessive, but we are going to be handling raw foods!  As important as cleanliness is for the physical body, cleansing the mind before performing any spell or form of magick is just as important.  I use the time when I am cleaning to clear out the junk in my head and to prepare and focus on the work I am about to perform. For me, it is a form of meditation.  While my hands move automatically to the rhythm of cleaning my kitchen, my mind is free to regenerate and go over what my intention is for that particular dish.  As you will learn, this is when I determine and set my intention, which may vary from dish to dish, and depending on who I am preparing it for.  For example, when I make chicken noodle soup from scratch because there has been sickness in my household, I set the intention of healing and driving out negative energy and infusing with positive energy.  But when I make my famous spaghetti for my family, the intention is love and togetherness, to help strengthen our familial bond.  Try it out for a few days and see how it works for you.  I incorporate this into every dish I prepare, because I believe the most powerful magick happens in the kitchen!
