The use of the candle in Magic goes back to almost 300 B.C. They are linked to use in Egyptian times where they were made of tree pitch.
When used in Magic’s it is the simplest of tool to use in Cleansings and in Blessings and Spell Castings. The most common candles used be White. It is said that it being White signifies “Virgin” in nature too it be said to use a fresh candle every time. Like all things it brings in and gives out energies or vibrations it has around it at the time of use. Traditionally White Candles are used but in more modern traditions they have been broken down by colours and further there in by meanings. I use a White one for all things I do. White is the purest of energies and White Light is Universal Light.
The candle can be used in many a thing. One can use the Candle for a Blessing or making a wish then blowing it out. The candle to can be used for Spells where one take pen to paper and writes down what one wants or desires and simply lights the candle and burns that paper into the Light. With the intentions of what be written come to pass.
Depending on where one chooses to read some say unscented and White be best other’s say one need to have a full set up. The Alter, Incense, and a candle of corresponding color to what one wants to obtain.
The common steps one’s take are preparing and alter and burning of incense the preparations of self this often means a bath in mineral or sea salts. Then the cleansing of the candle done with Sage or Salts. One should always use a blessing or ask for Light protections before the casting of any spell. Too remember what one does might well come back on them.
Like all things candle spells are done both in the Light and the Dark .
When choosing a candle the colours come into play with means for what wants to manifest to one’s life or what forms of magicks they might want to perform.
To me its more the power of the flame than the candle. The flame represents the Light that light is the very Soul. It is the inner and outer consciousness that brings us all as one.
The candle has both a positive and a negative reputation at times. They are used for Light in one’s surroundings and for blessings and ceremonies. Too they are used in the Occult and the Dark Arts. It is not the candle but How the individual uses it that brings forth its energies and powers. To make the power of a candle work one must embrace that the energy of the candle is real.
When choosing a candle there are a few things to consider, one being the part that brings forth the very flame itself “the Wick”. To some this is called the “Quintessence” - embodiment: the purest or most perfect example of something. The Fifth Element in ancient Medieval philosophy, the Fifth Element after Earth, Air, Fire, and Water. Heavenly body.
There can be no flame unless there is the air around the candle, to oxygen that fuels it life.
The burning of candles is one of the simplest forms of Magic it is one that can be done most anywhere and at most any time. The principles used are too very simply, focus, visualize, and have concentration on what one wants form the candle’s energy.
