Beginner Guide to candle magick

Using candles with ritual can add strength and ambiance. All the colors have different spiritual meanings and can help with different types of spells, so if you’re using candles to aid in your spell, it’s best to understand the energies and meanings of each color.

When you go into a craft store, you’ll find all shape, size and colored canc

White- white is one of the most basic of colors. They work for purity and cleansing but can work with all types of spells with other candles. I add them into all my spell kits and all my personal rituals.

Black- in general, black is the anti-curse/anti-hex color. You use it for breaking any kind of darker magic someone has used against you, it can be used as protection against negative energies as well as banishing (entity as well as negative emotions/energies you’re trying to get rid of.) You can use black and white together as a way of doubling the cleansing and protection powers in a spell.

Green– this is the color used in financial luck and money related spells. It’s also good for a fertile crop, abundance in more than finances and luck in your marriage, or any kind of growth.

Purple– Purple is considered a royal color in general. It is used in spells to gain wisdom as well as divination.

Blue– Blue is a healing color, it’s used to chase away bad energies and depressed moods.

Red– Red is a color of passion, life, death, anger, rage, blood and love. It’s generally lust and anger and can be used for banishing, love spells, sex magick or blood magick.

Pink– Pink is kind of a feminine and baby version of red. You use pink for femininity, lust and love spells, fertility and any time you need a color to represent the feminine.

Yellow– Yellow is typically a color of happiness, joy, motivation, vitality and inspiration/finding your muse.

There are many other colors with magical properties, but these are some of the main colors with their magical uses.

The next thing to look at are if you want to use scents. You can use unscented and burn incense but you can also use candles with earthy or other scents.

You don’t have to use scents at all but using certain scents do help with adding to the atmosphere and feel and can help with adding the energies associated with the scent.

There are different shapes, sizes and styles of candles. Most don’t really have any significance but if you want to burn through a full candle, finding a small tea light may help. If you want to reuse, pillar or tapered candles can be beneficial.

When you’re done, don’t blow candles out- snuff them or let them burn fully out.

Beginner Guide to Protection Magick

Protective and cleansing magick is probably the first type of magick that should be learned. It helps cleanse an area to prepare for a serious ritual, it helps offer protection while getting ready to divine or cast a spell and it helps prepare a new living space.

When you gain enough experience, you can even perform cleansings and protection on friends and family members.

Here are a few basics that I personally have used and what I have used them for.

Materials

The materials you choose to use can vary widely. You may not even have any special on you, but there are things you can use around your home.

Salt- I personally use sea salt, but if you have table salt, that can work fine as well.

Black salt- same as regular salt, both work. Black salt helps keep away unwanted energies

Sage- smudge sticks and incense or candles can all be used to purify and cleanse.You set the sage stick (smudge stick) on fire, then let the fire put itself out, while it’s smoking you walk around the area you’re wanting to cleanse.

Moving in to a New House

When I move into a new house or apartment, I always make sure to lay salt out around the door and along all window frames. I personally use sea salt, but even table salt can work. Lay out black salt at the front and back doors, windows and front gate to keep negative energies and intentions out.

Before moving stuff in, take a smudge stick light one side, let it burn out until it’s smoking then walk around the inside and outside of the house slowly while letting the smoke move around the areas you’re walking.

One tip I got from a Feng Shui book is to go into any hardly used corners (or any corners where the energies feel stagnant) and clap. The clapping helps move energy and take it from stale to active.

Personal Protections

If you’re getting ready to practice a spell, perform a ritual, communicate with the other side or any other form of the craft, take some salt (sea or black works well) and lay it out in a counterclockwise area. Place candles around the circle and light them counterclockwise to banish any negative energies or forces trying to get in your way)
If you want to banish negativity, go counter and if you’re trying to bring on positive energies, go clockwise.

Take a smudge stick/candle (sage is the most well known and most used), start walking clockwise to banish then turn and walk clockwise to bring on protective energies. Do your spell/ritual or divination within the circle.

Protective Rituals for Others

Create the circle with the person you’re protecting sitting in the center. Walk around the person counterclockwise to ward off negative then clockwise with a white candle to bring on the protective energies.

End the ritual when it feels right.

 

Always remember, when you’re putting out candles, make sure you snuff the candle and don’t blow.

I’ll be doing more later about protective magick. What do you do or use for protection when you’re casting a spell?
