Candle magic is one of my favorite ways to focus my intention. When you use a candle for magic, you set an intention, and light a candle, allowing your intention to burn itself into the Universe and later into your reality. Of all of the types of magic I have tried, candle magic has given me some of my best results. I’ve literally set an intention and seen my goal come to fruition before the candle even burned all the way down. You can use candles to help you to achieve any goal; you can even use candle magic for love.
If you want to use candle magic for love get a candle that represents love to you. People commonly use red and pink candles; red represents passion and intensive love, while pink represents more of a sweet and pure love. You can also use white candles to represent any intention. I’ve used both a pink and a red candle together in rituals designed to attract more love into my life.
Once you have your candle, you want to dress it. Dressing a candle is a way to give the candle power, and to transmit your energy and intention into it. I suggest using essential oils that are related to what you are trying to do.
You can buy essential oils at a local metaphysical shop. If you don’t have one near you, you can buy some from the magical web site National Magic Shop. Ylang Ylang is an essential oil that promotes love and seduction. Or you can buy a specially-prepaared oil, such as love oil.
How to Dress a Candle
In order to dress a candle, you simply rub oil onto the candle. You want to take an oil that symbolizes love and rub the oil from the top of the candle to the middle the middle of the candle. Then do the same process, this time moving from the bottom of the candle to the middle where you left off before.
Once the candle is dressed, you want to set an intention. In this case, you might set the intention to attract love in your life or to heighten the love that is already in your life. Some people write their intentions down though you can simply think about the intention and that may be effective.
Light the candle and then allow the candle to burn down. While you watch the candle burn, visualize the end result that you are trying to achieve. If you’re using candle magic for love, you might visualize yourself with you ideal partner in a committed relationship.
Once the candle has burned down, use a candle snuffer to blow it out. And in the process, you will allow your intention to drift up into the Universe from the smoke of the candle.
