Everything You Need to Know to Start Working Candle Magic Today
The use of fire is universal in religious and spiritual practices throughout the world. However, it could be said that Wicca and Pagan traditions are where fire really takes center stage, whether it’s a ritual bonfire, tall candles honoring the Goddess and God, or small tea lights marking the boundaries of the sacred circle. One of the most delightful ways to work with the transformative Element of Fire is through candle magic. Simple, elegant, and highly symbolic, candles make it easy to work with this power in the form of a single, mesmerizing flame.
Candle magic is a way of harnessing the unseen energy of the Universe into particular thoughtforms that work to effect a change in the physical world—whether that change is tangible, like more money in your pocket, or intangible, like a more positive outlook on a situation that once seemed hopeless. Candle magic is not only powerful, but is also regarded as the easiest and most simple form of magic for beginners to learn. This makes it an ideal starting point for anyone looking to start practicing Witchcraft. But while this guide is written from the perspective of Wiccans and other Witches, you need not identify with these paths to benefit from the practice of candle magic. No matter your spiritual leanings, you will find valuable, empowering information within these pages.
Unlike many other books on this fascinating topic, Lisa Chamberlain’s Candle Magic
goes beyond simply providing spells and a brief list of color correspondences. While these are certainly essential components of a book on candle magic, there’s a much bigger picture to understand. Using core concepts found in the ancient wisdom of the Hermetic Principles, as well as long-held traditions of color associations relating to specific goals, Lisa takes readers through a step-by-step explanation of how fire and color work together to manifest the changes you seek. Rather than wondering whether magic works, you will actually know how it works, which tremendously strengthens your odds of success!
