RITUAL CANDLES : CANDLE RITUAL & MYSTICISM
The greatest magic is inner magic, the magic of transforming
the mind, for with your thoughts you create your reality.
To create effective candle ritual it is best to be of clear
mind when you make your request and light your candle. It is
critical that you intend that the flame serve as a symbol of
Then your use of candles empowers the ritual, or meditation
because ritual candles combine color and scent with a single
flame... a dancing, living energy that lights the space as it
As the flame consumes the ritual candle, it releases the appropriate
fragrance as well as the energy of your hearts' desire into the
energy of all things.
It is your words, your hopes & your intent that make any
ritual have meaning. Tools, such as candles, or incense, are
used to help you focus your intent and one you with the ritual
as you request Divine assistance.
As the candle burns... so your prayer lives. You can reconnect
with the ancients...part again of all souls creating light in
I am certain that candle ritual changes the
world, the inner world of mind that creates the outer world of
I am also convinced that the quality of the
ritual candle, the timing & intent of it's creation can be
of supreme benefit to your ritual. It is matter of sacred tools
for sacred work.
CANDLE RITUAL & INTENT
Mystics and occultists know the planetary day and hour for
creating ritual objects impacts the spiritual power of that object.
The fine nuances of timing, astrology, color, fragrance and
intent should all be carefully considered when you purchase a
candle for ritual.
As I found it difficult to buy candles that offered the benefit
of appropriate color, combination of herbal fragrances &
proper timing... I began pouring candles for myself, and ultimately
Intent, the focused energy with which a magical candle is
created, is most important to consider when buying any sacred
I moon pour ritual candles with
the intent that you achieve the specified outcome and that harm
come to none. Candles are handled by no one but their maker,
so there are no other energies affecting them.
While some suggest that it is best to leave a candle burning
constantly, I find it is far more effective to light your candle
every day until it is gone.
If you repeat your prayer at least ten times with each lighting
and stay in prayer or meditation while the candle burns you demonstrate
the depth of your desire and devotion. You retrain you mind...
affirming your outcome in the present tense.
When you have finished, thank the Divine as you understand
it for granting your request, ask that harm come to none, and
extinguish the flame. Do not leave the burning candle unattended!
A unique meditation ritual is included with each candle you
purchase. Skillfully worded, each is designed to help you reframed
your understanding of the world, help heal your mind, body or
spirit, and to empower you to re-create your future.
CANDLE BURNING & PSYCHIC SCAMS
While I mention that my primary purpose in pouring ritual
candles was to have access to candles poured with moon phases
& planetary influences observed, it is important to mention
my second purpose. I wanted to offer some of my new clients a
way to return to confidence in their personal power. Let me explain.
In the city where I opened my first studio, I received many
calls from people asking me if I did "work". What the
callers specifically wanted to know was if I would burn candles
for them, particularly to return lost loves, to get money or
to banish negative people or influences.. for a fee!
It seemed there were some unscrupulous "psychics"
who scammed the vulnerable by convincing them that they (the
client) MUST HAVE "help".*
Further these psychic scammers insisted that only they (that
psychic) could help that client. They offered to do "work"
which often consisted of burning candles for that client. These
candles were often expensive and it was often the case many candles
had to be purchased again & again as somehow the clients
has "complicated" the work to be done.
What I intended to address by pouring ritual candles was the
need for new clients in particular to be able to perform their
own magical work and thus claim their personal power. I set
out to create the best possible ritual candles for the work they
wanted to do.
I do not encourage my clients to surrender their personal
power to another. I am sure that if you want to change your life,
you must do the work necessary to create that change. The affirmations
I include with my ritual candles are designed to empower you.
* Please know: I do not intend to disparage valid spiritual
traditions (Voodoo, Ifa, Yoruba, or Shamanic) where the local
mystic and recognized leader of that spiritual tradition accepts
offerings for spiritual practices within the confines of that
faith. Nor I am referring to religious candle offerings to deities.
The article above is simply my observation about psychic scams
and candle magic. I feel confident listing this information as
scam information because the new clients who came to me after
these experiences were quite sure they had been scammed. The
results they paid for... hoped for.... did not occur. Many felt
foolish because they had spent quite a bit of money with no result.
