A lot of witches burn candles just about every night.
They burn a candle in honor of the Goddess.
Just burning a candle, too, puts you in the right frame of mind. Some witches, even if they are burning a candle in honor of the Goddess, still dress the candle.
Dressing the candle means applying the right kind of oil and/or writing out on your candle what you want.
So, you need to know the right kind of candle and the right oil.
Now you have to do a little homework for your candle magick to be successful.
Research, research, research.
There are planetary influences, there is whether the moon is waxing, full, or waning; there is the day of the week –certain days are better to do the kind of magick you are looking for.
There is also Moon Void Of Course.
When the Moon is void of course, do not do any magick. I
f you want to do a simple candle magick, the most important thing would be the phase of the moon and the void of course.
There is the oil or oils that you will need.
Whenever you are searching for the right oil, you also need a catalyst that gives it that extra boost, like cinnamon.
Catalyst herbs need to be in all spells.
You need to use catalyst herb/oil along with your intended oil to send it off, to activate it.
But just a pinch or drop or so of oil.
These are a few
1. Dragons Blood -all spells should have this herb. Whatever you put in, you get out.
2. Allspice-is good for money.
3. Cinnamon -psychic work and love spell.
4. Cloves -love and psychic.
5. Galangal -this is a good one for prosperity.
6. Lilac -with flower power (feminine).
9. Myrrh -another great oil that gives power to any oil.
10. ginger color of the candle is very important as well:White -candles reflect all colors back.
Red -for sexual love.Pink -for love of the heart.Orange -for attraction. This is good for a calling.
Yellow -well being, concentration, intuition.
Green -represents health and healing, money, changes and renewal.
Blue -spiritual, healing, memory.
Indigo -Brow, third eye, psychic center. Helps to see aura. Psychic awareness.
Purple -Crown center, royal color, Deity, spiritual.
Brown -Stability.Grey -represents intuition.
When purchasing your candle, most witches buy the small candles which can be found in New Age stores.
When you are doing your spell, think positive that it will work .
Never, ever think that your spell will not work.
When doing candle magick, leave an opening for Gods to let them make a decision.
Also, set a time limit on the candle magick.
Give it a certain amount of time for it to happen and if it does not, then do it again.
Also remember, sometimes you just might not get your wish, and it might not be because you failed in your magick, but because it is not in the cards for you.
Like you might ask to be rich but maybe this lifetime you are not meant to be rich.
However, when your magick does work, do not forget to thank the Gods.
Also, feel that feeling of how it feels when something great happens and put that same feeling in another candle magick that you do.
When you are putting things together for magick, you are making magick work; you are energizing and enhancing magick.
Ritual sweep is acquiring the ingredients you need for a particular spell beforehand, thinking about what you want, and what will make it work.
Spells do not last forever. If some time has passed, say a Full Moon or so then you must do it again.
To start with, write a paragraph of what you want.
Then form into a few sentences, then a sentence, then a word.
You have to visualize what you want.
Do not narrow yourself on how you will get what you want, leave open for that.
Most people go to a God for the energy source like Kuan Yin for love and compassion, etc.
But know your energy source. If you do go to the Gods, make sure that you go to the God for that strength and character traits.
You can charge your candle with a quartz crystal, or by using a laser wand crystal, or a magickal wand made out of a particular wood.
You can place your candle on a Paton or pentacle.
You can write a petition on parchment paper of what you specifically want and also putting certain oils on the paper or wrap herbs in the parchment paper as well or do both.
Then fold parchment paper up and place it under your candle and let the candle burn down and then light parchment paper and watch it burn and while doing so, see what you want happening.
Then take the ashes outside and toss them in the air to be taken to the Gods or bury them.
