Kitchen Witchary and The Writing Process


There has been a book stirring in my soul for years. It wants to be called Kitchen Witchery. Books will come to me in my dreams. A gentle tapping on the window. A quiet whisper to ask to be brought to the world. Sometimes they sit on my shoulder or my desk for years and then one day, when they are ready, they leap from my fingertips to the page. I have very little control over what it will say. I am but a vessel for information to flow. I am excited about the fruition of this book. A cookbook, a soul book, a herb book. A empowerment for those who heal and create in the kitchen. Those that cultivate culinary creations from their countertops and cut carrot tops. This is a book that I cant wait to show you.


 

I want to share an excerpt from the intro called What is Magic?


Magic is often explained as a supernatural source or extraordinary power that is enchanted by a bewitched person with the use of spells or incantations. I disagree. I believe that there is nothing supernatural about magic but yet the perception of our social constructs makes us forget that we are all, in fact, magical.

Those who practice magic have been cast out of society for hundreds of years. Those who fear the power of the connection with Earth's energies have labeled it lunacy to practice such things. It is their innate inability to comprehend such God-given power that creates fear in them. For example in the early 1900s, there were more homeopathic schools than any other university in the United States. It was the misunderstanding of the energies of homeopathy that made people want to shut it down. It took the financial backing of Rockefeller and the Rothschilds to fund and start the American Medical Association. This association was built to spread the "faith" of science in the practice of medicine. In doing this they severed human participation and connection to the world. They removed the responsibility of knowing our land and the medicinal properties that God has provided. They deafened the knowing that magic immerses us inside of it and it inside of us. Instead, they preached a word of science. Science is faith. One must simply believe and trust that only scientists can understand healing. And thus, the people, who once healed themselves, now will have to pay for others to heal them. Handing over the keys to the kingdom and stepping back from self-empowerment. Due to this event kitchen witchery went underground and the word of The American Medical Journal was king.


 

Growing up in a family of Kitchen Witches I am putting all my recipes from all my years as an herbalist down in this book. I want people to be able to heal themselves and others from what they have in their backyards and in their gardens.


I would like for you to stay in touch so when the time comes, in the very near future, you can get on my pre-launch of the book. Subscribe to this blog and I will be announcing the launch very soon.


Peace and be well
