Here's a fabulous bit of Kitchen Witchery to fill your heart with the magick of hearth and home...
D. D. Scott's Magickal Mantras: #2
Hearth and Home, Health and Wealth, O Bright One!
I'm a natural, eclectic witch, which means that my hearth and home and the natural energies surrounding it, as well as the natural elements (earth, fire, water and air) that I bring inside, create and empower the magick of my heart.
As is often chanted while conjuring up fabulously bewitching spells:
As within, so without; As above, so below
For this wonderfully magickal kitchen witchery, I gather together three, 7-day white candles (I buy them at The Dollar Store - for yep, just a buck each.) I also use a Black Sharpie and draw the ancient triskele ruin on the glass to symbolize and tap into the powers of the inspiring Celtic Goddess Brigid.
Brigid is the Triple Goddess of hearth, health and home. She's considered the keeper of the flame and therefore a wonderful source of light and illumination.
She was born at dawn and heralded a brilliant light (thus she's often referred to as The Bright One), which she forever maintains around the hearth of homes the world over. Because she illuminates life and keeps homes full of good health and love, prosperity/wealth (in all aspects) grows.
To welcome Brigid's kind of hearth and home, health and wealth energies into my home, I keep three candles (three for the Triple Goddess) lit at all times while I'm home. I keep them on our stove because of Brigid's hearth connection. Today's hearth is either your fireplace or your stove/oven.
I light my candles before dawn each morning and say:
"To Hearth and Home, Health and Wealth, O Bright One!"
And then I work each day with these fabulously warm and positive energies combined with everything I do. Each time I go into the kitchen, I see the candles burning bright and am reminded that my happy home is my number one priority.
What do you think, D. D. Scott-ville? Does this sound like a wee bit of kitchen witchery you'll try?
Blessed Be! --- D. D. Scott
