Let’s talk a minute about energy. It’s the primary ingredient used by witches when conducting rituals or spellwork. The energy you put into workings is the act of setting intentions, so when you hear the term ‘set your intentions’ that really just means to align the energy you’d like to be infused into your spell or ritual.
Energy is highly influential. Have you ever walked into a room where an argument has taken place? The air always seems thick and tense with emotion. If you’re empathic, then you especially know how this feels. If you’re not careful, you can absorb those negative energies which in turn will lower your vibrations and make you feel drained or even irritable.
The good news is, energy is also easily influenced. Smoke cleansing is a common practice used by witches to help ‘clear the air’. Certain herbs and resins can be burned to drive away negative energy while inviting positive energies to take its place. Energy manipulation at its finest!
Let’s talk about the number one place where energy can affect you on a personal level -- your home! Energy is constantly flowing in and out of your home, and not all of it is positive or uplifting. When we leave our home to go somewhere, we are picking up energy from other people, places, and things. So if we have an encounter with a cranky store clerk at the grocery store, their energy can rub off on your groceries which in turn leaks into your house when you bring the groceries home.
This is why regular cleansing is vital for your home, and especially your kitchen! The food that we consume nourishes us with both its nutrients as well as its energetic essence. So while a banana is indeed a healthy snack choice, if you don’t remove the icky energy from the store clerk that scanned it at check out, it’s possible that once you eat that banana you will then consume that same icky energy (think of it like germs!)
But who has time for all of that cleansing after an exhausting grocery trip? We sure don’t! But what we do have time for is super simple mundane magick.
Today our resident kitchen witch is sharing her very own recipe for a magickal spray that can be used on any surface. The magickal properties of the ingredients used in this spray raise vibrations and enhance feelings of love and abundance. Our kitchen witch especially likes to use this spray on her kitchen counters so that when she is preparing food, the groceries that she uses to make a meal come in contact with the uplifting vibrations and drives away any negative gunk leftover from outside influences.
