Why are candles so important in the modern-day world after the advent of electricity? The answer is because the mysticism of fire and spellcasting is still ingrained in our culture. See how you can work with the transformative power to attract what you want!
Candle magick is one of the oldest practices of humanity. Fire is a sacred element for pagans, religions and even in the secular world. Have you ever wondered why we make a wish before blowing out birthday candles out? Well, we are casting a spell.
In fact, when we want to create a peaceful atmosphere we light a candle and you might have caught yourself staring at the dancing flame as if you were in a haze, almost hypnotized. Well, if you are just starting to explore spellwork, candle magick is an excellent place to start, especially because you are already familiar with it –even if you were not aware of it.
Candles are great to manifest your intentions because they represent all the elements: fire is represented through the flame, air as the wax evaporates, water because of the melting wax and the wick represents earth. Think of candles as messengers that transport your intentions to the universe.
To perform this spell anoint a candle with some essential oil of your choice -the one that feels right for you, focus on your wish and if you want to, write it down on a paper and place it under the candle. As you light the candle repeat:
Air for intellect
Fire to warm
Water for emotion
Earth to form
[Say your intention]
This is all you need!
