Basic Candle Magic

Here is a taste of magic you may use as soon as you complete the Self-Dedication period. This type of candle
magic is very basic, yet quite effective. Lesson Four will deal solely with magic, but this being an introductory
lesson, it is only fair to include a taste. This is a good time iterate how closely Karma and ethics are intertwined.

If you cast an evil spell, you may be in for some Karma although you might call yourself a white witch. You
choose your own color of magic, not once, but each time you practice. Some traditions believe in Karma as
“What you do comes back to you". Do you? This is your own moral choice. The magic you will learn from this
course and the magic you will learn to create on your own can be used for any purpose.

Keep in mind that for any magic it is best (though not necessary) to do calling magic, such as money, love, health, luck or anything that brings something to you, during the waxing moon (first quarter) to the full moon.

Banishing magic, such as bindings, quitting bad habits, curses or anything pushing energy away should be done during the waning moon (last quarter) to the new moon. These are optimal times, but you cannot always base your magic around the moon.

Basic candle magic deals only with two colors, white and black (Lesson Four will have a complete list of color
or meanings). Envision the white candle as the waxing to full moon and the black candle as the waning to new
moon. For any calling purposes, use the white candle. For any banishing purposes, use the black candle.

(Note: Always uses candles that are one solid color throughout. Scratch some wax off to test this if you are not

* One white or black candle
* Candleholder
* Matches or lighter
* Olive oil (a small amount)

Step One: Meditation.

For white candle:
Rub oil from the tip of the candle towards the base, while humming and visualizing your reason for doing this
spell. Continue humming and visualizing for about five minutes.

For black candle:
Rub oil from the base of the candle towards the tip, while humming and visualizing your reason for doing this
spell. Continue humming and visualizing for about five minutes.

Continue for either candle:
Place the candle into the holder and light it. Chant your chant for as long as you can while visualizing your
purpose. To chant, use a monotone humming voice. You should create a specific chant for your purpose. It can
be as simple as one word or as complex as you wish. (Examples: "Money, money, come to me", "bring love", or
"Protection surround me, complete serenity".) When you cannot chant and visualize any longer, put the candle
out and repeat the spell the following night (or day). After you see the first glimpse of the results of your spell, let the candle burn all the way out.

Remember, after the completions of any spell or ritual, always say: “So mote it be."
