Candle burning is one of most simple forms of magic. It can be performed almost anywhere and candles are very easy to purchase. The basic principles are to concentrate, visualize and using the candle as a focus point for your own inner energy.
Candle magic can be used for overcoming bad habits, attracting things, settling disturbing atmospheres, protection, regaining health, and developing psychic powers. Candles can also be used to honor someone near and dear to you.
You should clean the area where you place your candles. While working with the candles stay relaxed with a positive state of mind. Choose new, unused candles. Do not use the ones you choose for any other purpose.
A quiet surrounding is helpful, some people use soft music. Before any candle ritual, do not eat or engage in negative activities. A "cleansing" bath is also helpful.
Hold the candle in your hands for a few moments to allow your own vibrations to enter the candle. This will enable the wax to absorb a bit of your life force.
Using essential oils on the candle is fine. The energy from your hands will pass into the wax. Always start rubbing the oil from the top to the bottom when anointing a candle. Then go from bottom up to the center of the candle. While you oil the candle, you should concentrate on what you want to accomplish with the candle. Visualize success with the ritual and see your desires accomplished.
Essential oils can also be used when creating a ritual or using candles to manifest specific energies. They can be rubbed on the candle to release their fragrances when the candle is burned. A drop of oil can be placed on the top of the candle and it will release its fragrance when the candle is lit. Also oils can be mixed with water and burned in a separate container as part of the ritual. For example, cinnamon can be used for love rituals, lavender is used to relax or for healing. Find an aromatherapist or a good book on aromatherapy for suggestions. Each essential oil has it's own spiritual language also. The names of the different oils can be found on the internet along with their magical meanings.
Herbs and different plants are also used when making your own candles. Each herb has a spiritual name/meaning which adds it's individual energy to your candles. When the candle has been designed with a specific intention, using a unique blend of essential oils, herbs, color, and even small stones, they will release the powerful intent into the Universe to help manifest your intention.
Candle magic is a very common form of prayer. When you light your candle, you are sending a continual prayer while the candle flame is burning. Incense is also another form of sending your prayer/intention into the spiritual realms.
The use of candles in ritual or simply prayer requests can be very helpful when you are having problems focusing on your intentions. As with any other tools, candle magic assists you in holding the thought through the form of the flame (fire-action-male energy-sword), sending your intention/energy towards your desire. Never direct negative intentions towards anyone, this is not acceptable and is regarded as black arts or negative energy.....Keep all that you do within the realm of Right Action, by doing that, you will add positive results and bring blessings.....
