10 Ways To Use Coffee In Magic

10 ways to use coffee in magic

Last year I shared with you one of my favourite recipes for hot buttered rum and showed you how to turn it into an actual magickal drinkable potion.

So this year once it got cold outside, I started craving a delicious cup of hot buttered rum, or any of the variations I’m fond of (I like adding the batter to coffee or hot chocolate with just a little splash of rum, because a whole cup of hot buttered rum is often too strong for my tastes if I still have stuff to do when I prepare it and can’t afford to get that relaxed and sleepy). 

The problem though is that this year I’m on keto, and sugar and keto don’t mix at all.

So I came up with a keto-friendly version of hot buttered rum coffee (or chocolate).

And then it dawned on me that most people don’t seem to realize that something as mundane as coffee is actually pretty magical and has a long history of being used in magic.

So I decided to talk about the magical history of coffee and 10 ways you can use it in magic.

And then at the end of the post I’ll show you how to make a keto-friendly version of a hot buttered coffee drinkable potion (if you prefer the original potion recipe that has sugar in it, you can find here).

 

A SHORT MAGICAL HISTORY OF COFFEE

If you see coffee as a modern addiction that developed because people’s lives got so busy and demanding, think again.

The history of coffee as a popular beverage actually has its very roots in magic and mysticism.

The first place historically where people started drinking coffee was Ethiopia (there is an Ethiopian coffee ritual practised up to this day).

In the 14th century, a Sufi sect (a sect of Islamic mysticists) brought coffee from Ethiopia to Yemen and began cultivating it.

The Sufis used coffee to stay awake during their late-night devotional practices.

In addition to that, they believed that coffee -when you infuse it with prayer and consumed with proper devotion- could lead to “qahwat al-Sufiyya,” a term broadly translated as “the enjoyment which the people of God feel in beholding the hidden mysteries and attaining the wonderful disclosures and the great revelations.”

From there, coffee spread to the rest of the Islamic world and even developed an angelic reputation: according to a legend, it was Archangel Gabriel himself who first served coffee to Muhammad.

When coffee was first introduced to Western Europe, it was met with suspicion and prejudice. We can’t tell with certainty if it was because of the bitter taste, its connection with magic and mysticism, its aphrodisiac properties or the fact that it was so popular among Muslims, but catholics became very suspicious towards coffee, going so far as to term it “the bitter invention of Satan”.

Pope Clement VIII

Pope Clement VIII, however, sampled coffee himself and instantly fell in love with it.

He declared that the drink of the devil was so delicious that instead of rejecting it, a baptism was in order so that they could cheat the devil and banish all the dark magic from coffee.

(So next time someone tells you that coffee is bad for you, you can tell them that it has been officially blessed by none other than the Pope himself 😛 )

 

THE MAGICAL USES OF COFFEE

  1. Coffee has long been considered a drink that stimulates the mind and spirit, so you can use it in rituals meant to restore a person’s energy.[spacer height=”20px”]
  2. In addition to that, you can use it in spells for creativity.[spacer height=”20px”]
  3. The smell of coffee has a reputation of acting as a mild antidepressant (a property it has in common with frankincense, which also has a long tradition of being used in ritual).[spacer height=”20px”]
  4. In terms of practical magic, coffee has the power to remove curses and nasty stuff from people (including nasty spirits), which is why you will find it in different uncrossing bath recipes.[spacer height=”20px”]

How To Use Cloves To Remove The Evil Eye

evil eyes

“Malocchio”, “Mal Oje”, “Ayin-hore”,  “Drishti”, “Mati”, “The Evil Eye”.

Different languages have different terms to express the same thing: the belief that the eyes can be used to curse another person or affect their life negatively. The belief in the evil eye exists in cultures all over the world and can be found as far back in human history as ancient Sumeria.

WHAT IS THE EVIL EYE?

The evil eye is a form of curse that is cast through a malevolent glare.

It is usually the result of envy, of jealously so strong that its energy consumes the person and is projected outwardly through the eyes, affecting the victim. The results vary, especially considering that the evil eye often affects one thing specifically (what the person who gives the evil eye is envious of) instead of having a general effect: from headaches and vomiting to stomach aches and more serious health symptoms, bad luck, fighting with your significant other, damage of property, injuries etc.

It is usually not done deliberately (although in some cultures/traditions, there are ways people use to train themself in how to use the evil eye to cause harm), but if given by a person who has the natural ability to easily give the evil eye and if this person is particularly envious, the effects can rival a deliberate curse placed upon someone.

HOW TO REMOVE THE EVIL EYEremedies to remove buri nazar

There are many different ways to remove the evil eye curse.

The method I’m going to present here is the one I personally use. In many traditions they believe that for those methods to work, one has to either learn them from a person of the opposite sex (a mother can teach her son for example) or the person has to figure it out on their own by observing how someone else is doing it and without asking any questions.

Personally, I don’t believe there is any loss in effectiveness if one learns the method from a person of the same sex (or from an article on the internet, as is the case here).

However, the way I learnt this method was by observing older women in my extended family when they worked on removing the evil eye, so -since they weren’t allowed to explain how they do it exactly- chances are my method is slightly different than what my mom or aunt uses. This accounts for the many variations one can find for every basic method of evil eye removal, as well as for the different beliefs on how these methods can be used (many people will tell you for example that you cannot remove the mati from yourself; someone else has to do it) as well as in the actual result from the method used (the method I’m going to present for example is used by some people just for diagnostic purposes when they’re trying to find who gave them the evil eye, while
