A Quick Guide to Candle Spells
By: Joan Baytiong
Candles are lit in most of the ceremonies, it embodies earth, water, air, fire, and the spiritual element. They come in many styles, colors, and shapes and are sometimes scented as well. Primitive people used it as well to measure time. Little did we know that it can be a tool to manifest our intentions. “Lighting candles is one of the oldest and most traditional ways to let the universe know specifically what you want.” -Dearly Departed Apothecary and Candace Looft once said.
For new practitioners, be mindful of the rule of three: “Anything you cast or put out there—negative or positive—returns to you threefold,” says Looft. It is strongly suggested to cleanse your aura before gathering the tools for your rituals to draw you the right essentials needed.
You might be wondering how effective it is to set your intentions using candle magic? It is more about you and how pure your intention is “Yes, staying true to the elements of the craft is important, but don’t get so caught up in the materials that you lose sight of intention. It’s important to work through spell-casting prior, and write out the intention and gather your supplies. Keep a book to write down any spells and materials used. That way you can document what has and hasn’t worked in the past,” says Looft.
