Witchy Wednesday: How to Anoint a Candle

Posted on Posted in Magick, Witchy Wednesday

Candles are an easy and magickal way of unifying your power of intention with the vibrations in nature to manifest your dreams.

The candle acts as a physical representation of the energy you are placing towards your goal. Burning the candle releases that energy into the universe, aiding you towards your ultimate manifestation.

Pick an intention or a goal you would like to manifest. For now, you should start with the goal you are most excited about (you can perform this mini ritual for your other intentions at a later time, if you like).

Get a white candle, preferably a taper or pillar shaped. White candles carry the vibration of higher self, creation, and divine energy. Or, coordinate your candle color to match your desire; red for sensuality, pink for romance, etc.

Take a few deep breaths, close your eyes, and visualize yourself manifesting your intention. When you feel your energy is at its height, use your fingernail or a sharp instrument to carve your intention into the candle.

You can also anoint your candle with your favorite essential oil or holy oil to add a fragrant boost of energy to your intention. (Check out my new Mary Magdalene and Ganesha Anointing Oils!)

Place your candle someplace it won’t be disturbed; your altar, or someplace similarly special is a good space.

Light your candle as you focus on your intention, perhaps saying a few words, meditating, or reciting your favorite mantra before the flames.

You can let your candle burn out that day, or snuff it out and burn a little bit each day as you mediate, do your yoga, etc. Know that as the candle burns, the frequency of your intention is amplified and your dreams are coming true!
