Candle Magic for Beginners

Candle Magic for Beginners

Whether you're a veteran spell caster or just beginning to explore the mystical and magical side of life, candle magic is a great place to start. The tools are simple and easy to use, the spells can be customized to fit your personal needs, and they're inexpensive! And as always, remember that candle magic is intended as a way to help you focus your own energies towards manifesting your goals while also increasing harmony in your's not meant as a way for others (or yourself) to control you or anyone else’s free will.

What is Candle Magic?

Candle magic is an ancient form of magic that has been practiced for centuries. It can be used to cast spells and perform rituals, create a sacred space, and even act as a focal point for meditation and prayer.

Candle magic is based around the use of candles in order to create positive energy or energy that you'd like to work with. For example, if you want love in your life then lighting a candle will help attract love into your life. You can also use candle magic when making any type of wish or desire because it's believed that when you light a candle the flame represents the spirit descending from Heavens above onto Earth where it will grant your request."

Tools Needed for Candle Magic

To perform candle magic, you'll need the following tools:

  • A candle (or any fire-safe holder)

  • Matches or a lighter

  • A knife or other sharp tool to carve your runes with (you can also use a pen)

  • Chalk to draw on the floor or table if you're performing indoors and want to leave no trace of your work for others in the house/building/apartment complex etc. to see. This is also useful if you want to write something down on paper beforehand, but not necessarily for drawing out full designs like circles and squares.

  • Cauldron - this doesn't have to be anything fancy; just an old pot from around your kitchen will do fine! If you don't have one already then get yourself some water nearby so that it's still accessible when you need it during your spellworkings -- especially important if there's no sink anywhere near by where they could wash their hands afterwards (which would be silly because we're dealing with hot molten metal here...). You should also make sure there's plenty available before starting because this might take awhile depending what kind of project we're talking about--and even then! Time flies away when working with fire energy."

Preparing Your Candles for a Ritual

Dressing your candles is an essential part of the ritual.

On a piece of white or brown paper, draw the symbol for your particular god/goddess in black ink. You can use this symbol to dress your candle with.

  • For example, if you are casting a love spell on someone then you'd draw Cupid's bow and arrow as your symbol.*

Rituals and Spellwork

Rituals and Spellwork

A ritual is a series of actions that are performed in a specific order, often designed to bring about a desired result. It is an opportunity to reinforce your intent and give your desire more energy. A spell is usually a formalized set of magical acts that have been practiced by witches for centuries, such as burning incense or invoking the four elements (earth, air, fire and water). Candle magic can be considered both ritualistic and spellwork: it has both the structured nature of ritual with its specific steps (such as lighting the candle) and the intensity of spellwork because there's often a direct connection between what you visualize while performing these steps (for example, envisioning yourself receiving good news from work). And because candle magic involves tapping into universal energies directly through your will—rather than relying on deities or other spiritual beings—it's considered one of the purest forms of magic available today.
