Performing candle magic involves harnessing the power of intention and manifestation using candles as a tool.
This ancient practice has been utilised for centuries in many ways, ranging from simple rituals such as blowing out birthday candles to more complex ceremonies with multiple candles, crystals, and other tools.
Whether you are new to performing candle magic or have been practicing for a while, candle magic is a powerful and effective way to manifest your desires.
This article delves into the fundamentals on performing candle magic and will provide tips on how to incorporate it into your daily life.
It Begins With Intent
To perform any type of spell, it is important to cleanse your area beforehand. Once you have completed the cleansing process, you are one step closer to casting your spell with intention and focus.
For candle magic, you will need a coloured candle and a magical oil. Carving magical symbols or names into the candle can greatly enhance the power of your intention. You can also incorporate other items such as incense, loose herbs, ritual salts, and crystals onto your spell casting area to amplify the energy of your spell.
When performing candle magic, always use virgin and unused candles. Using a candle that has been previously burned for another purpose can interfere with the magic of your spell and lead to negative outcomes. It is best to avoid any potential risks and use a new candle for each spell. However, for spells that require burning a candle for multiple days, you can use the same candle as long as it is for the same intention. By following these basic guidelines, you can ensure the effectiveness and success of your candle magic practice.
All colours contain their own magical properties and harnessing the correct properties is imperative for spell work.
Having the correct colour invokes that colour energy into the spell which helps to amplify your intentions to the universe. For instance, incorporate pink or red candles for love work or green for money and luck.
Once you have the appropriate colour chosen, the next step is to anoint the candle with a corresponding spell oil. The purpose of anointing a candle is to establish a psychic link between the candle and you. By physically touching the candle, it starts to be charged with your own personal vibration. This helps to concentrate the desire of your magical intent into the candle making the spell powerful.
Think of the candle as an extension of your mental power and energy.
Anoint Your Candle
When you are anointing a candle for magical use, try to imagine that it is a psychic magnet with a north and a south pole. Start with one hand at the top of the candle and rub the oil downwards stopping in the middle. At the same time with your other hand, rub the oil from the bottom and stop in the middle. This motion draws energy in and is great for love and prosperity spells. To release or banish energy, start from the middle of the candle and rub outwards; middle to top and middle to bottom.
Always rub in the same direction, never back and forth, as you are directing your personal energy into the candle ready for the universe.
Like colours, herbs have their own magical properties that can aid you greatly when it comes to spell work.
Once you have anointed the candle with a spell oil, roll the candle in magically corresponding herbs or powders to give an added boost. Be careful, if you have added oil and herbs, the candle can become a fire hazard. Make sure your spell work area is fire safe and that your candles are placed on a fire proof surface, free of flammable objects.
As always, make sure to use safe practices when preforming candle magic.
Never leave a candle unattended or near anything flammable and I hope we speak in spells again soon!
