I read this forum all the time, and I so love everyone's many ideas that I find discussed here. I am in awe of how very gifted many of you are! Love to all! There is such a wealth of information to be found here, and I was hoping that someone may be able to give me their thoughts or maybe some input on a situation I am in.
Two weeks ago I made a doll baby to represent my boyfriend, and I put several ideas together of different minds from this site, and constructed a spell (for lack of a better word), of my own, and completed this job a week before the full moon came. The timing wasnt so much as intended to be a week before, but it was the only chance I was able to get enough alone time to be able to do my work.
Any way, I used the male and female figural candles in my ritual, and several different color candles for different meanings that I wanted assistance with. Every thing seemed to go ok, but, it was a bit strange that the male candle (I placed the male and female candles in a "face to face" position in the center of my alter), and the male candle once lit, burned down very fast, melting some into the female's feet and in equal parts in a sense melted sraight down into a pool where he was standing. For some reason as I watched this male figure burn so quickly, I was having a very clear sense to myself that this had to have had a meaning of some kind. As I sat and gazed into the flame, I tried desprately to grasp whatever it was that I was supposed to know from this. But no luck. All of the other candles took quite some time to burn. Several hours. I have had success before with rituals done with my boyfriend in mind, and this was a bit of a wake up ritual to him that I was trying to achieve. I have for a while now been wanting him to agree to being engaged (3 years now we have been together) and so in this ritual I used to dime store wedding bands meant for wedding displays, and placed in pair in his head area, in hopes to have marriage on his mind, and another set on my alter at the base of the male and female candles. I also used LM magnolia, and honeysuckle, just FYI.
Does anyone have any ideas as to why the male candle may have burned down so quickly and if there might be any significance with that in pertaining to my ritual? Time wise, I would say he burned completely down, and flame dying out in a matter of about 45 minutes to an hour. All of the other candles lasted a good majority of the day to completly burn, say at least 6 hours if not longer.
Thank you so much in advance for any help, and love to everyone
