You will find spoons in almost every country and culture around the world. Often used for ladelling out soup or stew, or for serving mashed potatoes, spoons, interestingly enough, also have another purpose when it comes to energetic realities.
- Scrying: Whether one is looking at the concave side of a spoon, or at the convex side of a spoon, as long as the spoon is shiny, it can be used to scry (or see) because it activates the third eye chakra to look deep within and find what the unconscious mind knows but what the conscious mind wants to “cover up” or at least “not acknowledge.” Gazing at the shiny spoon can bring us visions of what was, what is, and of what is yet to come!
- Defense: The concave side of the spoon is quite useful when it comes to deflecting negative energies around us. This is something that has existed as a folk wisdom in almost every culture around the planet. This is why I like to have a spoon with the concave side facing my front door and hanging in my healing room, and it is also why I have a spoon pendant made of iron (very effective in neutralizing negative energies) that I wear occasionally.
3. Of course we are all familiar with the “measuring spoon” when it comes to cooking and baking. For centuries the spoon has been used for this purpose as well as for eating soups and stews. It has also, however, been used for the purpose of measuring ingredients for potions and brews, and for stirring the cauldron. In many ways, the spoon is possibly the first “wand” that was ever created and put to use!
4. Spoons have also, over the centuries, been utilized to administer medicine. Whether that medicine comes in the form of chicken noodle soup or in the form of a cough and cold remedy from a bottle, the spoon has been essential in the administration of the remedy. “Just a teaspoon of sugar helps the medicine go down!” is a song that I learned as a kid and, now that I look back on it, the medicine and the spoon have always been associated with each other in my mind. Even when I am stirring my coffee in the morning, if I am using a spoon I am stirring with intent and creating a brew that will help me to manifest an awesome day!
I encourage you to now look at common, everyday spoons in a more magical way. And then go stir up some magic in your lives!
