|Cook soup in sacred space to share with those you love and fill your home and family with blessings.
Assemble the ingredients of your soup ahead of time. Divide the ingredients into four groups. Potential ingredients and their elements are:
Air: Beans, endive, sage, lemongrass, mace, marjoram, chicory
Fire: Peppers, almost anything hot and spicy, carrots, onion, rosemary
Water: Water, broth
Earth: Salt, barley, corn, potatoes, oats, turnips, beets
With an athame, cast a circle around your kitchen, saying:
"In this sacred space Only good may enter.
All that is cooked here is blessed.
So be it."
Point your athame at each group of ingredients in order, saying:
"I consecrate these things of (air/fire/ water/earth)
to bless and balance this soup
with (intelligence/passion/love/ abundance).
So be it."
When you have finished cooking, close the circle, saying:
"The circle is now ended. The goodness remains. Blessed be."
Leave the first portion outdoors as an offering of thanks for the blessings to be received.
