Once you've decided on what type of ritual or spell to perform, it's important to select the appropriate supplies to work with. These supplies will set the atmosphere, mood and tone to help you attain good results. It's best to use a glass encased candle for both safety and to anoint and dress the candle with little to no mess. 7 day candles work best since you can anoint the outside jar, mark the inside with a positive symbol and use several drops of oil and herbs that correspond with your desire. Image candles are also good to use because they are gender specific.
Once you've chosen your candle...(or your candle has chosen you!), you should use an anointing oil and incense that work all together for your desire. Let's use a Love ritual or spell as an example. A love spell conjures the feelings of love, desire and passion and the color red and/or pink are symbolic for those feelings. For a red or pink candle, you can use Attraction, Lovers, Come to Me and/or Adam and Eve oils and incense.
Before you begin, make sure you have a quiet area where you won't be disturbed. Create a positive atmosphere by lighting some altar candles. Begin burning your incense (use a burner that can withstand a lot of heat). On your candle, you will carve a Star of David cross (see image at left) into the wax to bless the candle. The wick should be in the center of the cross.
Place a few drops of anointing oil on the palm of your hand and rub both hands together. Pick up your candle, hold it by placing your hands in the center of candle and tilt it towards you to bring the desired energy your way. From the center, anoint the candle with hand strokes going up towards you from the center. From the center down, tilt the candle and stroke it from center down going towards you again. Always have either the top of candle or bottom of candle facing towards you so you are channeling the positive thoughts and energy towards you. While you are anointing the candle, think very deeply on your desire and wish. Remember...thoughts are things. The mind is very powerful and this is the time to focus all your thoughts of what you want to accomplish. If you want someone to desire you, focus on that thought very strongly. See yourself with that person and visualize that scenario. Continue to anoint the outside of your candle. Add a few drops of oil on to the Star of David cross and spread it all around the candle top and wick while continuing to focus on your intent and desire.
Once you feel ready, place the candle in a safe place and get ready to light it. Light the candle from the bottom of the wick and continue to visualize on the candles flame. If you have anything personal you can display (clothing and/or picture of your desire) next to the candle would only be helpful. Use the oil still on your hands and anoint your body. You can also use the oil as a perfume/cologne, add a few drops to your bath water and anoint your doorknobs to help attract positive energy towards your home.
It's important to remember that once you light your candle, you are not done with your spell. you must spend time affirming your thoughts on a daily basis. You can re anoint your candle, pray or meditate on your desire and you will soon see results. Good Luck to you and remember...Thoughts are things! If you can Visualize...you can Realize!
