I Can Do Magic: Simple Exercise
Here’s a simple exercise that you can get started on right away.
First before you begin, write in a journal how you feel before you sit down to do the exercise.
You will need a pure yellow candle (a bright yellow that is not too orange) and wooden or paper matches. You can find pure yellow candles at most grocery stores in the section with the religious candles (in glass containers).
You will also need to know which direction is South. To create sacred space with the Sun Candle, you will need to "charge" it, or program it to do so. Here's how:
- Stand or sit in the South facing North with the Sun Candle in front of you
- Light the candle using wooden or paper matches (do NOT use a lighter)
- Wait until the candle flame is steady and tall
- Hold your hands up to and around the flame, focusing your attention on the candle and flame.
- Say the charge verse below in a voice of command (a strong, powerful voice)
Child of Flame,
Nourish My Spirit,
And Protect My Aim!
If there are other people in the room with you, you can change the "My" to "Our" and the word "Spirit" to "Spirits." Leave the candle burning in the room for at least 30 minutes (be sure the candle is on a protected surface such as a plate and is not a fire hazard).
At the end of 30 minutes or when you feel ready, blow out the flame (don't snuff it). Spend a moment or two in the area to see if you can detect a difference in the level and quality of energy. The area should feel lighter, more harmonious and/or more peaceful to you.
Now write in your journal how you are feeling. Notice any changes in your sensations, thoughts and feelings.
Do this exercise for 30 minutes each day for 21 days and keep a journal of your experiences, feelings and sensations each day before and after the exercise. You will be surprised at how effective just this simple act of magic is at even this very basic level. From there the sky’s the limit and you are on your way to becoming a magical person.
