The Power of the Kitchen

The Power of the Kitchen

Thanksgiving; the holiday that not only we give thanks to what we have and are blessed with, but the day we test our stomachs to see how much turkey and other goodies we can consume. While everyone knows the kitchen is crucial for these extravagant dinners to come to fruition (I see what you did there), what a lot of people do not realize is the spiritual significance of the kitchen itself.

For many years, a lot of teas, ointments, spells, incenses, oils, and various other spiritual and healing tools were cooked in a kitchen. And this is still carried on to this day. Don’t believe me? Let me know how that epiphany hits you when you’re making chicken soup for a nasty cold.

I think there is a curse in that pie...

Many people can tell when there is “love” that is put into a dish, and know how certain foods can help them battle certain illnesses and ailments. Believe it or not, that is our energy and the spirit of the food mixing together for a desired effect. Many pagans, wiccans and other spiritual healers had figured out this fact eons ago, and still use it to help bring change to themselves and their world.

So for all you kitchen witches out there, and even those who just consider themselves to be mad culinary scientists, remember the power that a kitchen has. It has the power to heal, and also bring love and togetherness in a household. Enjoy the joy the Thanksgiving dishes bring, or any dishes from the kitchen for that matter, and give thanks to the season.

Moral: Happy Thanksgiving!
