Basic Candle Magick

Basic Candle Magick

Here is a taste of magick you may use as soon as you complete the Self-
Dedication period.  This type of candle magick is very basic, yet quite
effective.  Lesson Four will deal solely with magick, but this being an
introductory lesson, it is only fair to include a taste.

This is a good time iterate how closely Karma and ethics are intertwined.  If
you cast an evil spell, you may be in for some Karma even though you might call
yourself a white witch.  You choose your own color of magick, not once, but each
time you practice.  Some traditions believe in Karma as “What you do comes back
to you”.  Do you?  This is your own moral choice.  The magick you will learn
from this course and the magick you will learn to create on your own can be used
for any purpose.

Keep in mind that for any magick it is best (though not necessary) to do calling
magick, such as money, love, health, luck or anything that brings something to
you, during the waxing moon (first quarter) to the full moon. Banishing magick,
such as bindings, quitting bad habits, curses or anything pushing energy away
should be done during the waning moon (last quarter) to the new moon.  These are
optimal times, but you cannot always base your magick around the moon.

Basic candle magick deals only with two colors, white and black (Lesson Four
will have a complete list of color or meanings).  Envision the white candle as
the waxing to full moon and the black candle as the waning to new moon.  For any
calling purposes, use the white candle.  For any banishing purposes, use the
black candle.  (Note:  Always use candles that are one solid color throughout. 
Scratch some wax off to test this if you are not certain.)

You will need:

One white or black candle
Candle holder
Matches or lighter
Olive oil (a small amount)

                           Basic Candle Magick Spell

——————————————————————————–
                         Perform STEP ONE, Meditation.

                                For white candle:
Rub oil from the tip of the candle towards the base while humming and                 
visualizing your reason for doing this spell. Continue humming and visualizing
for about five minutes.

                                For black candle:
Rub oil from the base of the candle towards the tip while humming and           
visualizing your reason for doing this spell. Continue humming and visualizing
for about five minutes.

                          Continue for either candle:
                Place the candle into the holder and light it.

    Chant your chant for as long as you can while visualizing your purpose.
                    To chant, use a monotone humming voice.
  (You should create a specific chant for your purpose.  It can be as simple as
                      one word or as complex as you wish.)
  (Examples:  “Money, money, come to me”, “bring love”, or “Protection surround
                            me, complete serenity”.)

                When you cannot chant and visualize any longer,
     put the candle out and repeat the spell the following night (or day).

After you see the first glimpse of the results of your spell that night or day,
                      let the candle burn all the way out.

       Remember, after the completion of any spell or ritual, always say:
                                “So mote it be.”
                       (This simply means “It is over.”)
