Bread is one of the first baked food products apparently dating back to the Neolithic area (about 8000 years ago). Leavened bread was made in Egypt around 4000BC when the basic diet was bread, onions and beer…a bloke’s diet then…
Bread is sacred to the goddess Isis.
Bread is a basic mixture of flour, water, salt and yeast to which all sorts of extra ingredients can be added. Yeast is ‘alive’ so a loaf carries the energy of life within it.
Don’t leave your loaf lying upside down though…it will attract negative energies.
The bread will also carry with it the particular energies of the grain that was used to make it whether it is wheat, barley, rye etc.
Bread is excellent for use in ritual to honour deity and to ground after energy work.
