Candle rituals have been in existence for centuries. You may remember your first candle ritual when you were two or three years old on your birthday. The candles were lit and you were told to close your eyes, make a wish and blow out the candles. Candle spells work on pretty much the same principle. You light a candle, maybe close your eyes and repeat a spell or that which you wish for while visualizing it coming true. It is a combination of a need or desire and the ability to visualize the outcome.
Candle burning spells are very easy to do and to have success with if they are done correctly and you truely believe. Candle spells can be very easy or very complicated. It all depends on how much time you want to put into a ritual. It can be as simple as lighting a green candle and chanting.....money money come to me. It can also be very long and complicated lasting several days with the repositioning of the candles each day. The choice is always yours.......
There are three things to remember when dealing with candle magick.
Do not use matches! The sulfur in matches is a banishment tool and will lessen the effects of candle magick or even make it completely useless. Use a lighting stick, an incense match or a lighter to light the wick.
Do not blow out the candle! This is considered extremely rude to the fire element. Use a snuffer or wet your fingers and pinch it out. Just do not blow it out!
Please use caution and think safety first when dealing with fire!
Do not use sprays around the flames, be sure the candle is on a nonflammable base, keep away from low hanging cloth (such as sleeves) and most of all keep children away. Fire can destroy everything in its path leaving havoc and heartache behind if not used properly.Please use common sense!
The first thing you want to do is get the appropriate color candle for your desire. The candle you use should be virgin...that is unused. Under no circumstances use a candle which has already adorned a dinner table or been used as a bedroom candle or night light.There is a very good reason for not using anything but virgin materials in Magick. Vibrations picked up by second hand materials may disturb your workings and negate their effectiveness. Once you have your candle you need to "dress" it or annoint it with oil. The best oils to use are natural ones which you can find in occult shops although, olive oil will work just fine. You need to rub the candle with the oil from the middle outward to the ends. As you are doing this you need to be thinking of your desired goal. Then sit and meditate on your desire after lighting the candle. Read your spell or chant your appropriate mantra. You don't need a big elaborate spell. You can make your own spells and rituals. Think of your desires then make a simple little rhyme that tells about your desire.This is all about will power, the power of positive thinking and creative visualization! If you can do these things, you will send those vibrations out into the universe and eventually they will come to be.
When you have completed your ritual, allow your candle to burn completely away. You do not need to stay with the candle after the ritual but make sure that it is safe and the hot wax will not cause damage or fire. Never reuse a candle that has been lit in any magick ritual. It should only be used in that ritual then allowed to burn away or be disposed of afterwards.
