Preparing and Burning Preparing Your Fixed Candle:
There is tons of magic and spell casting, and candle magic is by far one of the simplest and powerful forms of magic out there. To do a proper burning for your fixed candle, follow these directions.
First, you want to cleanse your candle, your space and yourself. I advise a spiritual bath, shower, or foot soak with a dash of Florida Water, Moon Water, or whatever you feel pulled to using for prosperity and abundance intentions. While you are cleansing yourself be sure to talk to your spirits and ask them for favor in your working. Make sure it is okay to move forward and only do so when they say to do it. Once you are cleansed, it is time to cleanse your candle.
Do this by gently rubbing a small amount of Moon Water or water charged with cleansing intentions along the outside of your candle and the base of the container as well. Just reminder that my candles have been created, charged, fixed and made to order, so you will not have to do too much, but for those that want to be sure, charge your candle before lighting. You may use a selenite wand and let the candle sit at your altar overnight. Otherwise proceed as normal.
Once you and your candle are cleansed, it is time to cleanse your space. Burn Palo Santo, any incense or resin of your liking for several minutes or use a Cleansing Spray until you sense all of the energy is high vibe.
Once this has been done, set your candle on a solid, flat, stable and heat-resistant surface such as your altar. Be advised that wherever your candle is, it should be in well-ventilated space with no strong drafts. More importantly, make note that this space is in YOUR own space that is only accessible to you. No one should be able to go near your space. You do not know the energies or intentions of others and you do not want it mixing into your magickal energies. The candle should be placed on top of your petition, however; if the petition paper is a bit thick and may make the candle sit unevenly, then sit the candle on the solid surface and set the petition in front of it. If you are working with spirit for your cast, provide an offering to spirit for their assistance and add a glass of water since it is a conduit for the spirits. Depending on spirits, you may offer other candies, baked goods, money, wine, tobacco, etc. No matter the offering, offer it with gratitude.
After, you want to write out your petition. Write your petition on a piece of parchment paper or a piece of brown paper bag and sign your name and birthdate to it . Write your petition as if what you want to manifest has already happened—“I have money in excess to pay my bills, save, and buy whatever I desire” rather than “I need to have tons of money”.
If you are using a magickal oil or spray, add it to your petition now. Fold the paper towards you 3 times, turning clockwise after each fold, and set it on your altar where your candle will be. This is a very important step so take time to do this. Do not rush through it and ask spirit for guidance along the way.
Burning Your Fixed Candle:
Now it’s time to light your candle. Light the wick and sit with the candle for a few minutes. Talk to the candle for this is your personal spirit to manifest your desire. Give it nothing but positive intentions, affirmations and vibes. More importantly, make sure it is burning properly and thank spirit before leaving.
Fire Safety First: Some of my candles come fixed with herbs on top. These can catch the flame and torch up so be sure you've sat with those candles long enough for the herbs to fall into the wax completely. You may also choose to place your long burning, container candle into a shallow pan with water if your eyes will not be 'on it' continuously.
Protect your magick and work and never expose it to anyone or anything. I even advise to not post it on social media for you never know who is looking. Sit and talk to your candle and spirit daily if it is a multi day cast, again giving it positive affirmations. Give more offerings when you see synchronicities and positive changes in your life from your petition until your candle is spent.
The magick works best if you keep the candle burning continuously without any interruptions. If you have to put the flame out mid spell, ALWAYS use a snuffer and snuff the flame out. NEVER blow it out when in mid spell cast. Because this is your space, house, and magick, use your senses wisely and do what you see fit. When you relight the wick, make sure you speak to your candle and spirit before relighting the flame. Give more/new clean water.
When the candle is burned out, thank your spirits for the work they’ve done and dispose of the candle and offerings in your normal way. I suggest wrapping remnants in white paper towel or a brown paper bag and placing it in your regular trash. Remove that trash bag from your home right away. You may choose to clean and re-use any container that your candle was in as well. The magick is in the candle and it's burning, not the container.
