About Candle Spells
A magic spell is a formalized intention put into an energy form to break through obstacles to achieve a particular goal. A candle spell like any magic spell starts with a purpose or goal. In a candle spell the candle is programmed to act in a certain way towards that purpose. It also energizes, activates and feeds the spell. Since magic is a precision science, any good magic spell will have directors and limiters built into it. The candle in a candle spell translates those directors and limiters into an energy matrix that has force in the world.
Directors and Limiters
Are you familiar with directors and limiters used in magic spells? These are very important as they are the way we tell the Universe exactly what we want and what we don't want to happen as a result of the spell. For example, if you are asking for money and you don't specify certain criteria, you may find a penny on the ground. Not exactly the amount of money you were hoping for probably, but the Universe did deliver you money. Or if you don't specify certain ways that you don't want the money to come to you then you may find you are the beneficiary of a life insurance policy. In that case you get the money you are seeking but at the expense of a family member's death. Also not what you wanted to happen. By using directors and limiters in your magic spells you can avoid these types of occurrences and define exactly what you want.
Directors tell what you want your spell to accomplish. Limiters tell what you do NOT want to have happen as a result of your spell. You should include how, what, and when factors when writing directors and limiters. Generally they need to have the spell's purpose, how certain elements and energies will be used, safeguards for the spell and when the spell will start and when it will stop. Writing good directors and limiters takes much thought and some experience. Take your time and really think it through. You need to be very specific about certain things such as how much money you want and what time period you need it by when writing directors. Then when you start writing limiters, think a bit like a lawyer writing a contract. Anything you leave to chance will follow the path of least resistance and may achieve your goal, but in a way that you didn't want. Include things in your limiters such as "no harm or untimely death will occur to self or others or their property as a result of this spell" or that "money will only be obtained through legal means". Be sure also that your spell does not bind another person in any way or cause them to do something against their will as that goes against the laws that govern magical practice. You also have to give a lot of thought to how you word your directors and limiters. We had a student once who specified that the Universe not bring him more business than he could handle emotionally. He broke up a long term relationship shortly after launching the spell and was an emotional wreck. The Universe acting on his instructions sent no business his way.
Leave Some Wiggle Room
Now that we've made a case for how and why to be specific with your directors and limiters, we have to look at the other side of the coin. You also don't want to be so specific that you are not reasonable or are so restrictive that the Universe doesn't have any room to work within. For example, asking that you get one million dollars immediately is not reasonable. This is real magic at work, not fantasy magic that has a genie appear to immediately grant you any wish. Remember that a spell is an energy matrix that has to gather force and overcome barriers over time. Asking for something that is impossible will just make the spell null and void. So for example, when specifying numbers in your directors and limiters, use ranges instead of exact numbers for ages, salary, sizes, amounts, dates and so on. This gives the spell more freedom to achieve its goal. For beginners, it's a good idea to start creating spells that will have small effects until you gain some experience. As you get more experience, you can then move on to bigger things. You can see samples of good directors and limiters in the Witchcraft Spell Book: The Complete Guide of Witchcraft Rituals & Spells for Beginners book if you need help getting started.
Launching a Candle Spell
After deciding on good directors and limiters for your candle spell, you are ready to design and launch the spell. This simple candle spell only has 3 steps to follow.
Write your directors and limiters down on paper once you have established them. Make sure they are written clearly and concisely and do not violate the Rules of the Road, but that they allow for plenty of space and time for the spell to work.
2. Light –
Put the paper with your directors and limiters written on it on top of a plate and under a Sun Yellow candle. Fold the paper if you need to for it to fit under the candle on the plate. Then charge the Sun Candle with this verse:
"Child of Wonder,Repeat this verse between 3 and 7 times if you'd like to and leave the candle burning for 30 minutes to an hour at a time. At the end of the time blow the candle out. Be sure to blow and not snuff the candle as blowing sends the request and snuffing smothers it. Repeat this step every single day for up to 40 days.
Child of Flame,
Nourish My Spirit,
And bring my aim!"
3. Be Bright –
You have launched your spell and are continuing to feed energy into it by repeating step 2 daily, but the Universe is already working on delivering your request. The only other thing you have to do is to keep an open mind and heart. Look for signs that your request is coming to you, show appreciation for what you have and gratitude for what you know is coming, stay in a place of peace and joy and avoid letting mind drag you into doubt and skepticism. Be confident that the Universe will deliver your request. Allowing yourself to have negative emotions and doubts can set up a block that will not allow your desire to flow to you. The Universe will do its part to deliver, but you have to also be in a place from which you are able to receive.
That's it. A simple candle spell that allows you to co-create with the Universe is a good way to start learning how to create and perform magic spells. The more experience you have, the easier it will become and the more magical your life can be.
