When done fold your paper three times then engrave your candle with your goal. Light the candle than using it to start the paper burning. Please paper in the fireproof dish before it reaches your fingertips so as not to get burned. Burn candle for about a half-hour to an hour daily until it is burned all the way down. Then break it into small pieces and bury until all the while thinking of the goal you made it for.

EVERYONE: Once your paper is completely ash. Type in “This is my will! So mote it be!”

We will take 2 minutes for you to gaze into your candle and think about your goal and visualize it going out into the Universe to be heard by your guides, the gods and goddesses for them to help your goal come to fruition.

After the ritual is over scatter the ashes in the wind. This again helps take your goal go out into the Universe to help it come to fruition.

Burn the candle every day after the ritual for 1/2 to 1 hour until it burns completely down. While the candle burns see your goal as being completed. Then break up the remaining wax and bury it outside when your goal is complete.

EVERYONE: Using only your first name and state or country please introduce yourself. When everyone is finished welcome each by using the words ” Blessed be. ”

Preparation for New Moon Gathering May 25, 2017 at 7:00 PM CT

If you will be attending out Coven’s New Moon ritual, there are some preparations you have to do before hand. Please have you candle prepared beforehand. If you choose to inscribe it the night of the gathering during that ritual there will be a two-minute window once the circle and Watchtowers have been called for meditation and raising as well as combining our energies.

WHAT YOU WILL NEED:

1 White Taper Candle (After engraving your candle freeze it. Take it out of your freezer and place in a candle holder that it can stay in somewhere in your home after gathering for at least two hours before our gathering begins to allow it to thaw at and to room temperature otherwise, it may explode possibly causing you or your home harm.) Do not place the candle in the microwave to defrost it will explode!

Think hard on spiritual goal that can come to fruition or be working at the next Full Moon

Atheme or Sharp Item to engrave candle

One word engraved on candle to state your goal or intention

Working candle magic is one of the easiest ways to work a long-term spell. A long-term spell includes any that take more times of doing it than once for you to get the out you desire from the spell.

I will have a spell prepared to empower all our candles initially.

Below is the spell you will say each day you light your candle:

Hecate I call upon you as I light this candle to release the goal inscribed.

After your candle is lit rep=eat this spell three times:

Candle burning bright

Help me reach my goal with all the power you hold.

Bring the power and energy from the coven’s ritual forward with all its might.

Do not let my intention you contain fold.

So mote it be (or however you end your spells.)

Colors of Candles: What Do Different Candle Colors Mean

Colors play an important role in our lives and even when we do creative work or meditate, we can lend distinctive vibrations and focus our intentions better through the burning of different colored candles. Indeed; candle “magick” is an important and much studied science and art (which many feel, wrongly, is associated with black magic or witchcraft).

In this guide, we will only refer to the use of candle colors and their meanings for linking to individual energies as based on different colored Chakras. We hope that the candle colors and their meanings given below will work positively on specific forces of the Universe in order to strengthen your affirmations. This, in turn, can help you direct the Universal energy towards particular (positive) conclusions.

CANDLE MAGIC

1    One of the simplest of magical arts which comes under 
          the heading of natural magic is candle burning.  It is simple 
          because it employs little ritual and few ceremonial 
          artifacts.  The theatrical props of candle magic can be 
          purchased at any department store and its rituals can be 
          practiced in any sitting room or bedroom.

          2    Most of us have performed our first act of candle magic 
          by the time we are two years old.  Blowing out the tiny 
          candles on our first birthday cake and making a wish is pure 
          magic.  This childhood custom is based on the three magical 
          principals of concentration, will power and visualization.  
          In simple terms, the child who wants his wish to come true 
          has to concentrate (blow out the candles), visualize the end 
          result (make a wish) and hope that it will come true( will 
          power).

Witchcraft Terms and Tools – Candles

Candles are widely used in Wicca and related forms of Paganism and Neopaganism, as they are in many other religions. Consecrated candles are frequently used on the altar to represent the presence of the God and Goddess, and in the four corners of a ritual circle to represent the presence of the four classical elements: Fire, Earth, Air and Water. Candles are burned at all ceremonies, and the lighting and extinguishing of candles often marks the opening and closing of the ritual.

A candle can be consecrated and charged with magical energy by cleansing it and anointing it with a small amount of oil during the waxing phase of the moon. The candle can also be carved or painted with appropriate magical symbols to further empower the candles with those energies.

CANDLE MAGIC

Candle magic is an ancient art and it is the most widely used magic practiced today. The candle itself is a very powerful magical tool it contains all the basic elements earth, wind, fire and water, earth is represented in the wax, water the melted wax, the flame fire and the air is the smoke. The colour of the candles is very important as the different colours will bring with it its own energy and power, green for healing, red for empowerment etc. Each of the elements has with it its own single coloured candle, green for earth, yellow for air, blue is for water and red is for fire. The different colours also represent either a yin female or yang male energy, yellow is yin, green is yang, blue is yin and red is yang.
A candle is believed to have its own vibration and can be used in meditation and divination, pink or violet is a calm and soft light where as red is strong and powerful, when a candle is lit its colour is released into the surrounding area which will bring a nice energy into the room. If during your ritual you need a lot of power, light multiple candles. By rubbing oil over a candle before your ritual this will charge the candle with your own personal energy.

Ear Candles

One of the healing tools I like to use for energy clearing are Ear Candles.  This link takes you to a site that gives detailed step by step directions on how to use them.  http://www.wikihow.com/Use-Ear-Candles

The article really talks about how to remove ear wax with them….I don’t know if that is what they are doing but I find them to be energetically clearing.  I like to speak to the person that is getting their ear candled, to have them set their intention to clear away any “gunk” that has been lingering. I find that clearing my chakras does wonders but every once in awhile I can sense there is something that doesn’t want to leave.  Since I am working with the ears I tend to feel it has to do with what others say or the stories we tell ourselves!  I have had my own ears candled and afterwords I felt a great deal of clarity.

It is interesting to watch the flame as the ear is being candled.  I feel there are messages there to be received as well in that firelight.  When it is over I cut open the candle and show them what is inside….even those shapes can have meaning!  So be aware of setting intention as you work with them!

Disclaimer: I am not a doctor so you should use your own judgment or check with your doctor to see if ear candling is for you.  I share my own experiences here.
