Candle magic 101-Simple Candle Workings for Beginners
Now that we have laid out the foundations for you with our 2 previous blogs, lets get to the fun stuff!
You have a basic understanding of the types of candles we can use and what the underlying colors mean…..so do you put those two things together for candle work?
The first question with any workings will always be this........what is your intention?
Money drawing? Love drawing, Peace in your home? Health? Once you figure out what your goal is, then you can gather your tools together for your candle work.
Is your work going to be short or long in duration? Perhaps the better question is how much time can you devote to your work.There is nothing wrong with acknowledging the limitations of modern life & its challenges; one of them being the hectic schedules of work and family.
Penny candles maybe a good solution. They burn down in a couple of hours and can be easily repeated as much as you desire. Being small also makes them easy to use.
Choose the color for your intention and dress it with the appropriate herbs, oils or powders as desired.
If you have more time or prefer something with more “punch”, a larger candle such as a 7 Day Candle may be more suitable for you.
They can be left burning for consecutive days straight to continuously put energy behind your prayer or work. Pull Out Candles are great for writing prayers or inscribing symbols of strength or power to help your work progress.
If you have specific requests in mind, figure candles are also fantastic. A Knob Candle can be used for very strong wishes or requests such as a promotion or new job. Knob candles are burned a portion at a time every day until the candle is finished.
A Cat Candle can be used for good luck or to bring good fortune your way. A Couple Candle can help you bring love into your life or sweeten up an existing relationship.
