Things You Should Know About Candles

Candle magic is my favorite form of ritual work. It combines the 3 magical principles of concentration, will power and visualization to heighten your energy and bring your wishes to fruition. It continues to become an extension of your mental power and energy as it burns allowing their vibrations to fill your sacred space.

I use white candles the most in my work as white embodies all colors and I feel brings the strongest light energy and protection to the ritual. I use color candles when I am in need of triple action strength in one particular area. I bless and dress the candle for each specific use to draw in energies of love, money, protection, healing etc.

The procedure of blessing and dressing your candles is just as important, if not more so than actually burning the light. All of Rita’s candles have been blessed and dressed for each specific use, the work has been done for you. They are fully charged and ready to use upon receipt. Therefore I suggest purchasing candle blessing oil and candle blessing powder for all of your personal ritual candle needs

  • Hi my namesJoseph Maestas

  • I appreciate your list of things to know about candles I cant wait to use this information to further my journey, but I was hoping I could ask for advice. I lit two candles one night. One blue and one white. It looked to me that a spirit of a woman had wondered into my candle magice. I am fairly new at this and have nothing but good intentions. I am curious if this has happened to you or what you would do in that situation. I knew to leave her be but I went over and as soon as i organized my crystals she made a angry sound and lwas gone. Should I worry?

  • I lit 5 candles last night 1 red 1 green 1 pink 1 orango & 1 gold candle. These are the stick candles not glass. But the gold candle had thee biggest flame & I fell asleep with all 5 still lit now when I woke up 4 of the 5 are still lit. But the gold one literally disappear no candle at all left behind. What is the meaning behind that. As far as the rest they still are lit even with me writing now & they all seem to be around the same length any meaning behind that as well.
