So, what is candle magic?
Candle magic is known for being one of the simplest forms of magic used throughout ceremonial rituals. This is because the practice does not need any expensive artifacts for the ritual or use any flamboyant ceremonies.
Whilst I do want to make the point that fire is an awesome natural power source, all that talk of primal power and great energy might sound a bit intimidating.. I'll give you a clue: birthdays. Well done if you guessed it. I'm talking about the annual ritual, familiar to children all over the world, of blowing out candles on a birthday cake. Notice the basic symbolism in using the same number of candles as the number of years we're celebrating? And notice how powerful the concept of making a wish still is to so many adults worldwide? Almost sounds like magic doesn't it!
The point I'm making is that magic doesn't have to be hard, and candle magic can be as simple or as elaborate as you want. Always remember the simple power and beauty of that little ritual of blowing out a birthday candle in one long breath and wishing something with the full force of our wills. If you have only a couple of minutes today, you can make a start on candle magic by just lighting a candle and following three simple steps:
Determine what you want to achieve
State it as you light the candle
Focus willpower on visualizing the success of your goal
