Mmmm…the smell of home made bread really is quite divine isn’t it?
I have recently started making a loaf of bread a day for me and my family instead of buying shop bought bread. It is working out more cost effective and I am getting a great deal of pleasure from making bread to feed my family knowing that there are not loads of hidden extras like preservatives in there.
Since starting my daily bread making, about maybe 3 weeks ago, each loaf has turned out lovely and tastes amazing – especially toasted with butter…yum yum yum!
The most popular so far is a mixture of seeded wholemeal flour and wholemeal flour, it makes for a lovely firm bread that slices perfectly when making sandwiches for the children’s packed lunches for school, although I have made a simple soda bread loaf and boy oh boy is that good! (Tend to keep that one for me and the Mr!)
Anyway…yesterday was a rubbish day! Following a very long time spent at a yearly hospital check up, several unsuccessful attempts at getting a blood sample and not a lot to eat the entire day, I was hangry ( hungry and angry) and got very annoyed with an incident at my daughters school and ended up complaining to a teacher who promised me it would be sorted the following day…so when it came to making the bread that evening, I might not have been in the best frame of mind.
I wasn’t in the lovely calm place that is full of the warm nice feelings I get when I know I am making food for my family, I was in a good old nark and I took it out on the bread mix/kneading. Well you know what they say about where your mind is at when making spells, about your intentions when working with magick, it became apparent that something wasn’t right with the bread dough as it didn’t rise very well after is first proving, I carried on a kneaded it again before putting it in its tin for its second prove before baking…it still didn’t rise, so I left it a bit longer, still no joy. I was disappointed because this was my first fail and I had run out of flour so couldn’t make anymore, a bought in loaf would have to be got!
It was only this evening as I started to make another loaf (more supplies having been bought) that I realised all of my bad mood and angry thoughts had been put into the bread mix the day before, the dough was a big solid ball of snarly grumpyness…no wonder it didn’t rise or do anything, it just sat there!
So there you go, it doesn’t matter what magick you are working, spells, potions, baking and kitchen magick, always be aware of where your thoughts are and what intentions you are putting into what you are creating….can you imagine what would have happened if we had eaten the bread = one proper grumpy family!
