Simple Candle Magick

For very simple candle magick, an elaborate ritual is not necessary.

Candle magick can become part of your everyday life. Simple candle magick includes changing the mood within your home, sending soothing or calming energy to a friend who needs it, motivating yourself in the
short term, even sending a little positive energy to the world. Simple candle magick includes any other number of goodwill actions you would like to undertake. Simple candle magick pertains to general outcomes and
requires far less emphasis on formal ritual.

Simple candle magick can be used for changing the general mood in your home, which can include banishing or clearing negativity directly after a resolved argument, creating a relaxing environment after work,
creating a romantic atmosphere, creating a healing environment for a relaxing bath, or creating quiet time for children before they go to bed.


Using the example of banishing negativity after a resolved argument, it is important to note that the energy from an argument will stay in a home, hanging in the air like cigarette smoke. To remove that energy, simply anoint and bless a candle with peace, and light the candle. Gaze into the light of the candle and visualise the light generated by the flame moving swiftly to every part of your home. It is important to visualise the light moving to every part of your home, and not the flame! As the light reaches every corner and every person within your home, see it changing the energy. Allow the candle to burn for a short period. That's all there is to it.

Use this simple method of candle magick for any change in atmosphere that you wish to place in your home. For the romantic atmosphere, sense the romantic feelings, imprint them into the candle, and light the candle. For quiet time for children prior to bedtime, imprint the candle with the feeling of your children being content while colouring or some other quiet activity.

If you wish a more penetrating change in your home, to effect happiness for example, create a candle arrangement specifically for that purpose. Find a large, pink, pillar candle and bless and anoint it with oil. Create a wreath to fit around the bottom of the candle. Use wire and floral tape, as well as herbs or plants which are seasonal and appropriate to the essence of happiness such as apple blossoms in the spring, lavender in the summer, or juniper in autumn and winter. As you weave the plants into a circle, imagine your home being surrounded by happiness. Thank the plants for their help as you work. Imprint the candle with happiness. Visualise that as it is lit, it fills your home with the light of happiness. Next, place the candle on a plate and fashion the wreath to surround its base, light the candle, and enjoy the vibes! The wreath can be left to dry or replaced as needed; however, use the utmost caution in not letting the candle burn too near to the wreath as dried floral arrangements are flammable.

You can also surround a candle with stones for the same purpose. Simply place a pillar candle on a plate, and surround it with stones for your desired outcome. A pink candle surrounded by rose quartz sends a lovely vibration through your home. If you have a very large candle, you can affix the stones directly to the candle by warming the wax with a flame in a particular spot, and then carefully pressing the stones into the soft wax of the candle.

Simple candle magick has the distinct ability to help you focus on the truly important matters - your personal spiritual growth, the joy of your home, sending love to family and friends, and sending loving energy where strength is needed in the world. Seeing the delicate and fragile light in your home allows you to focus on and live with joy for all that is important.

If you are conducting a magical ritual which involves two people (e.g. an absent healing for a person some distance away) then the  second person can be symbolically represented during the ritual by another candle.  All you need to do is find out the subject's birth date and burn the appropriate candle for that zodiacal sign.  These are as follows-

                  ARIES - red

                  TAURUS - green

                  GEMINI - yellow

                  CANCER - silver

                  LEO - orange
