Magical Powers of Candles & Prayers

Last month I wrote the following article for my June newsletter. I thought candles and prayers, sometimes called spells, was an interesting topic that could be put to use by anyone who would like to make positive changes in different area's of their lives and even others. Then I thought what a great idea to bring this topic to my weekly radio show "Journey Into The Paranormal".

I learned about the magic of candles and the meaning of the colors when I was about fourteen years old. Many years ago I owned a new age metaphysical shop and sold everything one needed to conduct a candle prayer and so much more. So I have seen and experienced this first hand and it works well and can help with many things such as healing or getting a job. I highly recommend that you also listen to the archive of the radio show I did on the subject in which I go into even more detail on how to properly bless candles and so much more.

Candle burning goes as far back as the ancient Egyptians. They were not used by the Egyptians just for light, they also used them in forms of prayer and ritual. From ancient times all the way up to the present time candles are widely used in the practice of prayer and ritual. When you go into a church there are candles burning on the alter and it is certainly not because the priest needs some light. We see candles at weddings when they are lit to ensure a long happy marriage. They are even burned at funerals in honor of the dead. Candles have a special energy and power to them, a power that many are not aware of.

People light candles for prayer and that is OK. Some think when a candle is lit to help bring a little love into your life then it is considered spell casting and therefore evil or even black magic. Well that is not at all the case. A spell is simply an intention that is put out into the universe. Whether it be a simple prayer at bed time or lighting a candle at church for your sick Aunt Edith, it is still a spell. Even though your own thoughts can create your own future, candles bring more of a charge to that intent. This is why it is important to always project positive energy and positive thoughts, it affects our energy and our lives. The same goes for burning candles for a specific intent. The intent should always be positive.

People burn candles in the room just to bring a nice change to the atmosphere. The actual color of the candles also have a lot to do with the energy they will attract. In the past I have heard many people relate black candles to evil or dark magic. This is not at all true. Anything can be used for both a positive or negative result. Black is actually a good color of candle to burn to help get rid of negative energy or for a banishing. I have provided a list below of all the colors and their meanings. But first you should realize a few things on candle burning and how to get better results.

For starters you should never burn a candle with a negative intent. For example, do not burn a candle to get a certain person to fall in love with you. That is actually consider dark and you should try this instead. Try burning a red candle to attract the right person to you and if you are currently having a problem in a relationship you may want to put out an intent like "Please allow my relationship to go in the direction it needs to soon for the good of the two of us and the good of all." You can burn candles to help you with psychic work or to help someone through the healing process.

You can start off doing something that is pretty simple such as picking the appropriate color candle, lighting it and saying a little prayers. In most cases you should use a long taper candle or a smaller candle and unscented too. You want a candle that is going to burn out in a few hours. You could also go with the seven day novena candles. these are the tall candles in the glass that you see often in churches. When using the novena candles you are to let them burn for days until they burn out completely. Each day at a specific time you should repeat your prayer. It will help greatly if you use the creative visualization meditation that was in last months newsletter. You want to picture in your mind your intent happening and coming true.

Some people also believe in blessing their candles and even burning the candles on specific days of the week and during different phases of the moon. I certainly would pay attention to the moon phases when doing a candle prayer. If you are looking to gain something such as love, maybe a candle for a new job or career,you should do so during the waxing moon. That is the time from the new moon to the full moon. If you are trying to rid yourself of something, like a habit or illness, then you should do this during the waning moon. That is between the full moon and the new moon. I gave complete details of how you should bless your candles along with the proper oils and incense on my past radio show.

One other thing I would like to mention. The list below of the colors and their meanings is not only effective in candles, its also effective in the clothing you wear and the rooms you spend a lot of time in. At home I have a room we call the Angel room. Of course its name comes from the collection of Angels in the room. This is a place where I do my psychic work, meditation, prayer and so forth. We painted this room and the room in my office where I do readings purple and lavender. Shades of purple is a strong color to attract psychic energy and that was my exact intent when painting those rooms. You should never paint rooms in you home dark colors and should really avoid wearing all dark clothing. This can have a great effect on your moods and on how others people actually view or judge you. Bright cheery colors are best.

There are many books out there that teach more about burning candles and even books with prayers that go along with the candle burning. I have including a simple prayer below that I learned from a friend many years ago. You can simply change it around to fit your needs. When she gave me the prayer there were blank spaces that have to be filled in. I underlined the words where the blank spaces would have appeared. These are the words you can change to fit your intent. I thought this was a fascinating subject to share with you. Some of us never realized that candle prayers go back into ancient times and we still do it today, even on your birthday when you make a wish and blow out the candles. Good luck with you candle prayers and may this article inspire you to make a positive change in your life.


Prayer - As you light the candle repeat the following three times. allow the candle to burn out completely.

"In the name of the light, who is the lord of the universe. May the light and energy of this candle remove all fear, negativity and doubt and transmute to a powerful Healing force. May this candle attract Healing, positive energy to Mary Ellen Smith. For the highest good of all and for the good of the universe, so be it, so be it, so be it."

Doesn't white candle substitution of other colors of candle lower the intent & level of energy emitted into d universe? i.e. Using white in place of yellow candle in praying to d light for brainpower. Will the effect be the same?

Can anyone direct me in the direction of someone who can help me interpret the meaning of the flickering candle I lit in memory of my dead mum and daughter on xmas day. I merely told them i loved them and asked my baby for forgiveness and asked my mother to protect her and enjoy her company until my soul one day re-unites with theirs. I then lit a candle and the flame was waving/flickering like crazy. The wick was sort of bent, and was flickering up and down much like a constant waving motion made byt the flame and wick...can anyone tell me where to go to find out the meaning of this? Thank you

I have been practicing this since before I really knew the difference between faith and magic. To me they've always been the same and they always will be. I've always found that white candles are the most effective to me. I always used them on instinct and then as I learned that this was an actual thing I tried using other colors for their intended purpose. I find the idea that the colors actually effect the power of the prayer or 'spell' ludicrous. The power behind it is entirely linked to your resolution and focus. If a certain color makes it easier to focus for you or has meaning for you then that is the color that you should use. In my mind the white is pure and helps me to keep my mind and intentions pure. I believe it attracts the right kind of energy. I also say a prayer before lighting any candle. I rub them in my hands transferring my thoughts and intentions into the wax until it is warm with my energy. A small disclaimer: This is not common practice and may not work for you, but it has always worked for me and I encourage you to give it a shot.
