Ritual Food

Eating something is very much part of my practice.  Maybe I just haven’t mastered harnessing the universal powers yet – but after serious spell work or even a ritual I am wiped.  I’m exhausted!  Eating something has always been part of my magickal practice.

Lack of eating (fasting) has also been part of my practice.  Let me tell you – as a fat girl – it is NOT easy to fast.

When to Feast:

Sabbats

As a yummy ‘thank you’ to your guides

 

When to Fast:

Asking the universe for a favor (gotta give something to get something)

Asking for anything that would be considered ‘above and beyond’

Show devotion

 

I eat something every day in my little sacred space.  I offer the first bit of food to my Goddess, Hecate.  When she has her offering and her candle is lit – then I eat.

Maybe this sounds crazy – but sometimes I even talk to her.  Sometimes I talk out loud as if she were physically with me.  There are times I communicate with her psychically.  I would say most of my communication with her is ‘silent’.  I anoint her feet with oil only used for her.  I change her stones around (she has different stones at her feet at different times).  I sprinkle some Hecate Water (rain water that has been charged under a dark moon) on her head.

I feast to say ‘thanks’ and I fast to say ‘please’.

All workings leave me tired.  Many friends have told me that I should be tapping into the universe to channel my energy – but that doesn’t make sense to me.  The energy of the universe is not my energy.  I should use my energy and my intent in my workings to give it power.  That’s my philosophy anyway.

Food as part of a ritual is really quite central to my practice.  I always offer food to guests, too.  I like to think that the positive energy of food radiates.  If you eat something good or you eat something which replenishes you – then you will feel more positive and energized.  I love to have a big glass of ice water and a big glass of ice cold wine during and after all my workings and rituals along with a fruit of some kind.
