First, it’s important to open your circle and focus on your intention before you practice any candle magic work. When you’re centered, read the candle blessing aloud and light your candle. Keep it lit while you do the work connected to the particular candle. Gaze into the flame as you meditate, if you feel called to work with the fire. Never leave your candle burning unsupervised, and always on a heat proof plate or dish. Use your chosen candle regularly when you are working on that specific intention or purpose.
