natural magic is candle burning

Posted on

1  One of the simplest of magical arts which comes under
the heading of natural magic is candle burning. It is simple
because it employs little ritual and few ceremonial
artifacts. The theatrical props of candle magic can be
purchased at any department store and its rituals can be
practiced in any sitting room or bedroom.

2  Most of us have performed our first act of candle magic
by the time we are two years old. Blowing out the tiny
candles on our first birthday cake and making a wish is pure
magic. This childhood custom is based on the three magical
principals of concentration, will power and visualization.
In simple terms, the child who wants his wish to come true
has to concentrate (blow out the candles), visualize the end
result (make a wish) and hope that it will come true( will
power).

3  The size and shape of the candles you use is
unimportant, although highly decorative, extra large, or
unusually shaped candles will not be suitable as these may

{candles of {standard or uniform|uniform or standard} size if possible.|If possible, candles of {standard or uniform|uniform or standard} size.} Those which
are sold in different colors for domestic use are ideal.

4 The candles you use for any type of magical 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.
occult reason for not using anything but virgin materials in.
magic. Vibrations picked up by secondhand materials or.
equipment may disturb your workings and negate their.
effectiveness.

5 Some magicians who are artistically inclined prefer to.
make their own candles for ritual and magical use. {This is a.

act of making your own candle is magically potent.
Specialist shops sell candle wax and molds together with.
wicks, perfumes, and other equipment.

6 The hot wax is heated until liquid and then poured into.
the mould through which a suitably sized wick has already.
been threaded. {The wax is then left to cool and once is this.|Once is this, the wax is then left to cool and.}
has occurred the mould is removed, leaving a perfectly formed.
candle. Special oil-soluble dyes and perfumes can be added.
to the wax before the cooling process is complete to provide.
suitable colors and scents for a particular magical ritual.
Craft shops which sell candlemaking supplies can also provide.
do-it-yourself books explaining the technicalities of the art.
to the beginner.

has to be oiled or ‘dressed’ before burning. The purpose of.
dressing the candle is to establish a psychic link between it.
and the magician through a primal sensory experience. By.
physically touching the candle during the dressing.
procedure, you are charging it with our own personal.
vibrations and also concentrating the desire of your magical.
act into the wax. The candle is becoming an extension of the.
magician’s mental power and life energy.

8 When you dress a candle for magical use, imagine that.
it is a psychic magnet with a North and a South pole. Rub.
the oil into the candle beginning at the {top or North|north or top} end and.
work downwards to the half-way point. Always brush in the.
same direction downwards. This process is then repeated by.
beginning at the bottom or south end and working up to the.
middle.

9 The best type of oils to use for dressing candles are.
natural ones which can be obtained quite easily. Some occult.
suppliers will provide candle magic oils with exotic names.
{If the magician does not want to use these, he can select.|He can select if the magician does not want to use these.}
suitable oils or perfumes from his own sources. The oils.
soluble perfumes sold by craft shops for inclusion in candles.
can be recommended.

10 the candles you use can be colored in accordance with.
the following magical uses:.

white- spirituality and peace.
red- health, energy, strength, courage, sexual potency.
pink- love affection and romance.
yellow- intellectualism, imagination, memory and.
creativity.
green- fertility, abundance, good luck and harmony.
blue-inspiration, occult wisdom, protection and.
devotion.
purple Material wealth, higher psychic ability,.
spiritual power and idealism.

11 If you wanted to use candle magic for healing, you would.
select a red candle to burn. To pass an exam, burn a yellow.
candle, to gain esoteric knowledge burn a blue candle or for.
material gain, burn a purple one. It is obvious these.
colors relate to the signs of the zodiac and the planetary.
12 The simples form of candle magic is to write doesn’t the.
objective of your ritual on a virgin piece of paper. You.
can use color paper which matches the candle. Write your.
petition on the paper using a magical alphabet, such as.
theban, enochian, malachain, etc. As you write down what you.
want to accomplish through candle magic– a new job, healing.
for a friend, a change of residence, a new love affair,.
etc.– visualize your dream coming true. Visualize the.
circumstances under which you might be offered a new job,.
imagine your employer telling you that your salary has been.
increased or conjure up a vision of your perfect love.
partner.

13 When you have completed writing down your petitio,.
carefully fold up the paper in a deliberately slow fashion.
Place the end of the folded paper in the candle flame and set.
light to it. {As you do this concentrate once more on what.|Once more on what, as you do this concentrate.}
you want from life.

14 When you have completed your ritual, allow the candle to.
have completely burned away. You do not need to stay with.
the candle after the ritual, but make sure that is safe.
and that red-hot wax will not cause damage or fire. Never.
re-use a candle which has been lit in any magical ritual. IT.
should only be used in that ritual and then allowed to burn.
away or be disposed of afterwards.
