Candle magic is easy and can be done for many and varied reasons which you will know more later. The simplest way to perform candle magic is to begin by choosing the matching candle color with your goal. The candle should be new and never used. Do not use a candle that is too big or too decorative as it might distract your concentration. Light the candle.
Then, write on a virgin piece of paper the goal of your ritual. When we say virgin that means it is new and hasn’t been used or dirtied. You can make use of a colored piece of paper that matches the color of the candle you are going to use. When writing, use a magical alphabet like malachian, enochian, Theban, or others.
As you write down your goal, visualize the goal coming true like a new love, a new house, a new car, the healing of a friend or family and others. Visualize the circumstances under which your goal comes true like the specifics of your new love is he kind, handsome, dark, or whatever you may want.
Once you are done writing, in a slow and deliberate fashion fold the paper and place the end of the paper on the candle’s fire. As you are doing this, concentrate more on the completion of your goal. Once this is done, let the candle burn all the way. You can leave the candle to burn out just ensure that it is safe.
