Even Nature Takes Some R & R!

As the winter solstice approaches, nature reminds us it is important to take time to rest and restore. I invite you to do the same as 2018 comes to an end. Nourish your body, allow your mind to daydream, and revitalize the spirit with family, friends, and loads of natural beauty! I'll be doing the same for the remainder of the year, so comment approval and email replies will be delayed. I appreciate your patience as I take time to replenish the 'ol creative wells (because I've been busy working on MANY new and exciting things coming your way in 2019, so get ready!).

Wishing you all a comfy and cozy, fuzzy-sock-wearing, soul-healing, snowman-building, chocolate-covered kind of Yuletide season! Love and blessings to each and every one of you! 🎄

Pinterest Gone Pagan: Psychic Protection Spell

Pinterest has no affiliation with this post.

Kitchen Witchery...wait. Is witchery a word? If not, I just declared it one.


As I was saying, kitchen witchery seems to be it's own genre of magick. I'm not sure if it's because some people already find the kitchen daunting or people assume you have to have a vast knowledge of herbs in order to cast in the kitchen, but I've found many witches keep their practices to their altars and away from the stove.

But, like the creepy friend in Uncle Buck, I have a cure for that. (Please tell me I'm not the only person who has seen Uncle Buck roughly 83 times.)

You see, magick is everywhere. We just have to be willing to see it. I mean, what's more magickal than taking flour, eggs, and sugar and turning it into a delectable cake? You wouldn't eat plain flour. And it's probably best you don't eat straight sugar by the spoonful. But a little leavening, add some heat, and the next thing you know it's birthday time! Really, have you ever stopped to think about it?! Cooking is physical magick right there in front of you. So why not take the time to imbue some magickal properties to your already pretty amazing, totally tasty recipe? 

On that note, did you know Pinterest is LOADED with magick? They hide in the shadows, disguising themselves as recipes, but really that strawberry trifle and bacon-wrapped hot dog (God Bless America!) is a magickal formula just waiting to be deconstructed.

The best part? I'm here to do that for you! I call it Pinterest Gone Pagan, a new series I'm launching to teach you how to double duty your dinner into a manifesting session of taste bud delectability. 

I've decided to start with a wonderful recipe from Gimme Some Oven. (Here's the pin link if you'd like to pin it to your recipe box.) You'll have to head over to Ali's page for the full recipe (because, you know....copyright infringement.). But below I'll show you how this seemingly every day soup can actually be used for a psychic protect spell! Pretty cool, hm?

The key to turning this soup into a spell is to visualize while you're preparing it. While you're measuring, chopping, and stirring, envision your mind and body being physically surrounded by a protective barrier. Imagine yourself inside a force field where no one's ill intentions can penetrate. I like to envision a blue or purple bubble surrounding myself for protection, but choose whatever color speaks to you. And while you're eating this scrumptious soup, focus on the ingredients nourishing your body and securing that protective fortress. 

So other than visualization, how does this soup become psychic protection? Here's how!

Onions and garlic: used for healing and protection

Carrots and celery: both used to increase psychic awareness, thereby alerting you to negative energies

Mushrooms: increase psychic abilities and resistance

Potatoes: Protection

Salt: The Ultimate Protector! Salt is awesome. It should be your first go-to when you need any form of protection (or when you're having popcorn.)

Dinner and a spell all in under an hour? What more could you ask for?

  1. How about spaghetti sauce? Meat, tomatoes, basil, oregano, garlic, and maybe some salt are what most people put in. I also add unsulphured molasses and dark brown sugar.

    1. Hello there!

      Tomatoes, garlic, basil, and salt are all wonderful in protection spells, so it can easily be used for that purpose. Basil can also be utilized in a love spell, as well as molasses and sugar (anything sweet!). Just remember in love spells, you cannot infringe on someone's freewill. So you want to cast for qualities (i.e. funny, caring, intelligent) and not a specific person. Learn from my (young and foolish) mistake. Casting for someone specific WILL backfire! =D

      Thanks for stopping by! Hope you have a wonderful week!

    2. A lot of the time people put baking soda in their sauce to counteract some of the tomatoes bitterness. Baking soda could be used for purity so it could be added to a love spell to help with purity of intention.

    3. Great insight! =D Thanks for sharing!

  2. I use the word "witchery" all the time too -- it's a wonderful word!

    I love stiring magick into all I do! I always stir clockwise three times to pour in my intent into everything. From batters to soups, coffees and teas, and everything in between!

    1. That's wonderful that you always take that little extra step! There's something very special about being purposeful in all that you do.

      Thanks for taking a moment to comment. =D
