Teaching Magic and Spirituality to


Long ago, magic and spirituality were taught throughout life. There were higher lessons that were taught more intentionally, but in general, magic & spirituality were just a way of life. We've moved away from that as a society but we have the opportunity to do it again.

Food is an easy way to bring magic into everyday life.

If you think of an intent, something that you want to have more of in your life, then think about the color, texture, flavor, smell, and shape that you associate with that intent, then you'll know which foods are associated with that intent.  When you eat that food with intent, you bring it into your being.

Personal pizzas are great fun and a good way to teach magic.

Each individual can set their own intention for their pizza. Everyone gets their own dough ball to turn into a crust. Symbols, pictures, or letters can be marked into the crust with the prongs of a fork. The base sauce (or oil) can be chosen based on the intent. Toppings can be added based on intent.

The same can be done with ice cream sundaes or tea.

Let truth and love guide my way.

Altars & Prayers

Morning or evening prayers or sun or moon greetings or the keeping of an altar can help children find spirituality.

Children can be taught about individual ancestors (whether blood relations or not). They can be remembered by a picture or artifact. Stories can be shared. Children can give offerings (even if it's just a glass of water) and encouraged to talk to and call on their ancestors.
