Candle Magic 101:
What Is It and How To Do It

The Art of Candle Magic

Candle magic is an age-old practice that uses the transformative power of fire to bring your intentions to life. It's a way to work with the elemental energies, the universe, and your own personal power. This practice can be as simple or as in-depth as you desire.

A Candle Magic Ritual You Can Do At Home

Try this easy candle magic ritual at home:

  • Clearly define your magical goal or intention, using positive language and engaging your senses.

  • Find a quiet place to light your candle.

  • Energetically charge your candle by holding it in your hands and visualizing it surrounded by white light. 

  • State your intention out loud and then light the candle.

  • Sit in front of the lit candle with your eyes closed, taking a few deep breaths. Visualize your intention coming to fruition, using your senses to imagine what it would look, taste, and sound like.

  • Let the candle burn for a few hours. When extinguishing the candle, it is best to snuff it out rather than blowing it out, as the motion of blowing can release the intention.

  • Continue to burn the candle daily until it has burned all the way through.
