We are often asked about candle magic – how does it work, what colours should you use etc.
This is my view, based on many years of using candle magic. You can find lots of articles and videos online and the best thing to do is try a few ways, until you find what works for you!
As with most magic, the tools themselves are not magical – it is your intent and desire which charges and transforms the items so that they become your power tools.
In the case of candles, the act of preparation is the most important part of the spell. From the moment that you decide to use candle magic, you have already started your magical work and even your journey to the shops to get the candles, is part of that process. The more energy and effort you put into the process, the more successful it will be.
