Follow my random posts if you'd like to find out some interesting basics about magic and bits of historical facts from my research.
According to Sally Dubats in her book Natural Magick, "Candle magic consists of projecting the essence of an individual into a candle, and doing healing work for or drawing circumstances to that individual represented by the candle. Seeing an altar alive with several delicately flickering candles reflecting their light off a bell, crystal, wand, and cauldron while incense is burning is a near mystical experience."
I learned that there are 3 steps to take during candle magic:
1. Decide the magic you will perform.
2. Decide when to perform magic.
3. Select the appropriate candle color.
I do research and I will use bits of interesting parts in my future novels.
