Kitchen Witchcraft Spells & Charms – an excerpt

Jul 7th, 2018 | By | Category: Book News, Books

Kitchen witchcraft Spells & Charms is the new book from Rachel Patterson. It’s the first in a series of books which delves into the world of the Kitchen Witch. Each book breaks down the whys and wherefores of the subject and includes practical guides and exercises. Other titles on the way include Garden Magic, Altars & Rituals and The Elements. these are ideal books for beginners, or for anyone who doesn’t feel confident about any of these specific aspects of their craft.

“Working with the Craft is very personal; everyone will walk their own pathway and take a very individual journey. I don’t believe there is a right way or a wrong way to work with anything within the Craft, whether it is how to cleanse and charge your crystals, how to make a poppet or what herb to use in spell work.

There are lists on the internet and there are books a plenty – (including this one) all of which have guidance and suggestions but, and here’s the thing, no one person should tell you that
you MUST do something a certain way. We can only share our personal experiences and the knowledge that we have learnt, but only as an opinion or an option, NOT a definitive.

I firmly believe that each person should trust their own intuition and be guided by pure instinct when working magic. Just because a book or the internet or someone else says “do it this way” does not mean it will be the right way for everyone. Of course, there are ‘standard’ ways of working things, such as the order a ritual goes in but even then, who says it must be that way?

Obviously, there are some things that are sensible and it would be irresponsible not to follow some of the guidelines. For example, if you are working strong magic then it is advisable to
cast a circle for your own protection and the protection of others. If you are new to the Craft then be very careful when working your first magic spell, go for something simple and nothing too
complicated.”
