Candle Magick Reminders
I just thought I would set to writ, a few little reminders that you may want to think about as you do your candle magick...I hope it helps.
Keep in mind that their is a lot of room for experimentation here to find out what process works best for you. You may find that you'd rather rub your candle differently while charging it with whatever intent you have for it. Instead of using an oil, you may want to carve the intent of the candle along it's stem instead, or do it along with using an oil. It's important that you feel comfortable with the way you go about doing your magickal workings, so don't be afraid to try something different just so long as it feels right for you. That means, don't just skip something because your too lazy to put in the effort. Magick is all about effort, so if your not willing to put 100% of yourself into your spell or ritual, don't bother.

Imagination and creativity play a key role in candle magick. Your spell can consist of a coloured candle and a powerful prayer, or be more elaborate, incorperating other objects into it. For example you could write your intent on a piece of paper, read it out loud and burn the paper. Or use a string. Strings are often used for breaking things like bad habits, or separating yourself from people that have a negative influence in your life...cutting the cord so to speak. Speak your intent (preferably in a chant or rhyme) and burn the string into two pieces. A small bit of hair can be burned to add more of a personal touch to spells. Not too much. Hair stinks when it's burnt!

You'll notice that I have references for days, colours and so on to help you know more about candle magick. These are just guidelines. In the real world your bound to find that you can't follow every reference every time you do a spell. For example, you may not be able to do it on the particular night listed as most condusive to your need, or have the right coloured candle on hand. Don't sweat it. Do the spell on the night that's best for you, and remember that a white candle can be used in place of any other coloured one. Even another colour candle can be used. Remember that the power is coming from you. The candle only carries energy when you charge it, and it's that energy that matters, not the colour of the candle. You may find that you need candles to be the specific colours that are recommended to help you focus. If you do then make sure you always have a large selection of coloured candles on hand. Although I have candles in every colour imaginable, I find that white tea light candles work well for me. Again, experiment and find out what feels right for you.

When performing candle magick, think about what size candle you need. Candles can only be used for a single spell. You can't perform a money spell with it one day, and use it to send healing to an ailing friend later on. An individual candle can only be 'programed' for one use. So when thinking of what you need your candle for, take into consideration how long it will be burning, and if you'll be burning it on more than one day. Using a giant candle for a spell that will last an hour is just a waste of wax. If you are not going to let the candle burn out completely, a good thing to do is store the unused portions of them with others until you have enough to melt down to make a candle that can be used to light for the earth over and over. If you aren't able to do that, then let the candle burn completely, or bury the unused stubs in the earth.

Can't get outside to do it because of the weather? No problem, a must for city witches is a planter of soil used specifically for burying left over spell materials. Once the weather turns warm, put the earth in a bag and bury it outside. Personally, I find throwing left over spell materials in the garbage disrespectful, and recommend not doing it.  If you can't keep a pot of soil in the house to dispose your left over spell materials, just put them all into the same plastic bag and hide it until you can bury it outside in the earth.

RE:Candle Magick Reminders
(Date Posted:01/13/2009 02:15 AM)

There are four things to keep in mind when dealing with Candle Magick:

The candles you use for any type of magickal 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 or equipment may disturb your workings and negate their effectiveness
Do not use matches ~ the sulphur is a banishment tool and will render the candle's magick effects lessened or useless. Use a lighting stick, an incense match or a lighter to light the wick
Do not blow the candle out ~ this is taken as an affront. Use a snuffer or wet your fingers and pinch it out, anything but blow it out
Use caution and think safety first when dealing with fire. Do not use sprays around the flames, be sure the candle is on a inflammable base, keep away from low hanging cloth or any cloth or flammable items and, most of all, keep children away! Fire destroys everything in its path and can wreak havoc and heartache if not properly used.

Create an altar or special place where you can burn your candle and leave it undisturbed afterwards. You can add flowers, incense or other symbolic items if you wish.
Time your candle magick to correspond to the cycles of the moon. To bring something into your life, do your rituals when the moon is waxing (between New and Full Moons). To rid yourself of something, do it when the moon is waning (between Full and New Moons). If you have knowledge of Rune Stones it is possible to carve their symbols into the candles to help intensify the magick.

This is a quick uncomplicated ritual, designed to be used for all positive purposes.

You will need one candle of the appropriate colour, a candle holder and a lighter or incense match, never use ordinary matches!
When you are ready to begin, hold the candle between the palms of your hands, breathe deeply, and visualise your goal. Meditate briefly before lighting the candle to help still the mind and bring your desire into focus Feel all the power and energy seep into the candle.v Speak of the goal that you wish to accomplish.
Place the candle in the holder, holding the lighted incense match or light above the candle, bring the flame down towards the wick visualising and repeating your goal as you light the candle. State your intention out loud, in simple, clear terms. Imagine that you already have what it is you want in your life.
Sit in front of the candle and meditate for a few seconds with it. Continue to chant your desire as the candle burns. It is not necessary to chant the entire time. Watch the flame steadily, but don't stare intently. Focus on being receptive and open to what it is you want.
When you have completed your ritual, allow the candle to completely burn away. You do not need to stay with the candle after the ritual, but make sure that it is safe and red-hot wax will not cause damage or fire. Never re-use a candle which has been lit in any magickal ritual. It should only be used in that ritual and then be allowed to burn away, then dispose of the left-over wax afterwards. To help the candle magick you can also place a piece of the wax under your pillow and repeat the desire every night before you go to sleep. You do this every night for a week after the ritual.
