MAGIC, LIKE OUR life, does not happen separate from the whole, in a silo away from everything else.
Magic, healing, and claiming/owning our medicine selves happen in communion, collaboration, and conversation with the Universe. It is a complex, layered conversation that happens at the crux of many different things—including our multi-dimensional, complex selves.
The practice of intersectional magic is the practice of no longer living, being, creating, and healing in the fragmental, dichotomous categories that modern society encourages us to bucket our lives in—this or that, work or hobby, spiritual or activist. Instead, it is born from the ancestral lineage we come from, the amalgamation of lived experiences that make us who we are, and our personal agency to be the whole, radical change we wish to see.
The forging of this magic is our attention to how everything is connected and our intention to live those connections out.
In the same ways that we’re not separate from the soil and earth, the stardust of the Star Nations, or the ombre red, orange, yellow rose sitting on our kitchen table, our medicine and magic are not separate from the everyday moments and tools we have always been surrounded by.
Traemos la magia because we are the magic.
The following practice is shared in hopes of helping us live with and in the intention of our magic, the awareness of medicine around us at any given moment, and our ability and agency to be the authors of our own healing, the collectives, and our amazing planet and divine universe.
In our culture, food is magic, is the medicine. Kitchen tables have held the power, ceremonies, and rituals of our ancestors. In the following intersectional magic practice, we bridge the roots of our kitchen table wisdom to the power of our intuition by using the food of our ancestors.
May our answers be a reflection of all the love and magic that brought us here.
