I have been slowly doing some light spell work on my (now) fiance. I started with a doll baby for him to keep his promise to marry me (long complicated story, mostly rooted in mild paranoia on my part), I did this a couple months ago and it seems to be doing really well because just this Monday it seems it sunk in for both of us that we're going to get married and we started being serious about it.
Anyway, last week I started a vigil candle love spell which i used Marry Me, Compel, Blessing and a non LM love oil 'cause it's what I had plus what was probably a bit more herbs than really needed. I'm using the candle spell as an opening for a nation sack. I burned it from when I woke up in the morning to right before I went to bed, snuffing it out, so it burned for about a week. Wednesday was the last day it burned, it was pretty well burned down when I lit it so I wasn't expecting it to burn for more than maybe 4 hours max. Probably about 2 hours into burning (I lit it later than normal due to toddler related things) I started to get a little worried (which did eventually turn into a full blown panic attack later that day) and I was sitting on my bed, which is in front of my alter, talking to my sister about being worried and how I was trying to get unworried but it was hard. Just for the sake of comforting myself/focusing on something else I started drawing runes which all said consistently that everything was ok and to stop worrying cause I was going to be my own worst enemy if I didn't (so very true). So not too far into my reading I turn and notice some of the herbs at the bottom of the glass had caught fire and as I'm sitting there wondering if I should try to put them out with out extinguishing the candle the glass breaks into 3 pieces. It broke diagonally from about 3 inches up to about half an inch from the base and then the bottom split in 2. The flame was still going so I had to snuff it out after having to find a sock to move the large piece of hot glass off so I could get to the flame.
Is this something I should be concerned about or do you think it's just physics? I burned the petition paper, photos and the small piece of fabric with his nature on it the next day at the prompting of my pendulum. They had a light layer of wax that leaked out of the candle onto them and when I burnt them they burnt long and bright and crackled (the photos were printed on normal computer paper so no photography chemicals). Once the flame went out, though, it smoldered for a long long time, maybe a half hour. My petition was for him to not just love me but for "the flame of love to not burn bright and hot and fast like a bonfire, but slowly and steadily and to smolder when the flames dim like a hearth fire."
Do you think there's more to it than just a loud "STOP WORRYING"?
