Hi everyone!

I know I'm new to all of this, but I just have a question about candles.

I'm thinking of going ahead with a spell kit/reading soon with a root worker from AIRR, but the thing is, I'm really nervous about using candles. I don't like them because I just have a fear or burning something, etc.

Is there another alternative to candles/incense? If I don't use them, will it really affect the way a spell works?

I'm sorry, I had to ask because I'm really concerned.

Thanks for the help! :)

It completely depends on what type of spell you are doing. If you are making a mojo hand, then a candle is not necessary, same goes if you are working with a doll baby. But if you are trying to take a candle spell (which many spells in Hoodoo are) and do it sans candle then it will be hard for you to pull that off. Consider container spells, bottle spells, mojo hands, and doll babies if you want to stay away from candles. Get a copy of Hoodoo Herb and Root Magic from Lucky Mojo--there are many tricks listed in that text that do not require candles. However, if you continue to work in this field of magic you are going to need to make your peace with fire because it is a powerful element and one that is called upon quite frequently. For more on the role that candles play historically as well as today in Hoodoo I really like Henri Gamache's Master Book of Candle Burning which you can also purchased from Lucky Mojo.

good luck,

Use 4" candles. They burn in less than two hours, so you can keep on eye on them.

I absolutely agree with Miss Bri that you should try to overcome your issues with dealing with fire. Common sense comes into play...SAFETY FIRST! Don't leave your candles unattended unless they are properly set.

Some rootworkers, Miss Bri included, can set candles on your behalf. This information is provided on their profile on the AIRR site. If you have any questions about this, you can e-mail them directly.

Also, you can order vigil candles to be lit for you at Missionary Independent Spiritual Church.

If you're doing a candle spell you don't have to leave the candles burning for hours. You can set up an altar in a place where you spend many hours (eg. in your living room at a spot that is visible from where you sit and watch tv) and burn the candles for as long as you can be there. You can also burn them in a tray of sand so that even if something goes wrong there will be no fire spreading. Many people place candles in the bathtub where they're out and don't want to put them out,you could try that even when you're at home. If you want to avoid candles you can always look for a spell that has a similar effect but doesn't require candles,but this is not always an option. Ultimately it's up to you,try different methods and see what works for you.

Relative candle size question - break up / reconciliation

Unread post by merrygerry » Sat Jun 05, 2010 2:48 pm

I ordered 4 candles from LM to do a combination break up / reconciliation / new love spell - have seen it posted here, 2 black candles for the couple to be broken up and two pink candles for the reconciled love and the new love - figured I just want my old love back, no harm to the current woman in his life, I think it would all be much easier if she found a new love, so was going to put them back to back, each walking to a pink figure candle - him to one representing me and her to one that would represent a new male lover for her.

When the candles arrived, the one to represent him, the black male candle is much smaller than the other three - and will consequently burn much faster - is there any way to accommodate for this - like when the black male candle burns out, maybe replace it with a regular 6" black candle? It seems like they all need to burn the same amount of time - like not put his out earlier in each session, that seems like it would confuse the work somehow - does anyone have any ideas? It's not just a little smaller, I'd say it's like almost 50% smaller so can't imagine they'd burn evenly.

I guess I could call LM and order another black male figural candle and ask them if they have ones that would match the size of the other three but I sort of wanted to start the work in the next few days while the moon is still waning.

Thoughts / recommendations?

Order of candle lighting / extinguishing?

Unread post by merrygerry » Sat Jun 12, 2010 6:43 am

Hi,

I'm doing a "break-up" and "come to me" combination - candle to represent the other woman, the man, and me - also side candles for the woman and me - so a total of 7 candles - the other woman and her side candles are black, the rest are pink. Plan to walk him away from her and toward me.

My question is should they be lit in any particular order? I just started it last night and as I was doing it, I was wondering if there was an order that should be followed in the Hoodoo tradition? Do I star with him, with her, with me, with the side candles, etc. And when it's time to extinguish, is the order the same or does it reverse?

If this question is redundant, I apologize. I have the Anna Riva books on order and perhaps the one about candle rituals will address this but it hasn't arrived yet.

As always, thank you to the helpful and knowlegeable people who take time to help us grow in awareness and capabilities - MUCH appreciated!

I dont think the order of lighting and extinguishing candles matter. The importance here is to move them correctly away and to the right person. I know in more elaborate set ups...I think in the henry gamache book you light it in a particular order, but in this case I would do what feels right to you.

Last minute candle spell

Unread post by ohwhygeorgia » Mon Jun 28, 2010 2:04 pm

Ive had a sudden, and unexpected break up with my long time boyfriend of 4 years. Some issues came about involving a he said she said thing, with my family resulting in a huge knock down drag out fight with him. I've been away from him for four days or so, and we arnt talkin much and when we do, he is very unpleasant. He's so caught up in fault and so on, and refuses to talk about things and make things better. Basically I was caught off guard and don't have much material wise to help this situation ( as far as oils, powders, etc.) so the first thing I did was start a road opener candle, Orange. To help him be open to communication, and opening up to me, and our relationship. I then dressed two white candles with olive oil, and asked that these clear the air and negative energies around us and the situation. I also hoped that these two would represen us, and bless both of us. I then dressed small red candles with love me oil, and placed them around the two white candles. I asked that we be surrounded with love and may he understand and feel the love I have for him.

I know that this isn't much, but I'm hoping that given the situation and me being unprepared this could atleast help somewhat.

I'm supposed to meet up and talk to him later today, regarding what's goin to happen, wether it be we are able to work things out or I'm going to move out.

I'd say it's too late for a honeypot. Anyone have any advice??

Do you think this could help the situation some what?

Also, anything else I could do for the time being?


I'm considering wearing the love me oil, since that's all I have at the moment, and I figures since I dressed the candles with it, Maybe it could help?

If your talk goes well and you decide to work things out, start the honey jar right away. But starting it today when you are meeting him today is not going to give it enough time to work.

Wear the love oils when you meet with him. And I would keep a white candle dressed with RO and a red candle dressed with love oils burning on his name/picture while you meet as well.

White candles can be used for anything - remember, there was no such thing as colored candles until fairly recently in history. So people just used what they had available.

Tiniest candles

Unread post by Lucylookingskyward » Sun Aug 29, 2010 5:14 pm

Hello, all! I did a forum search to try to see if I could answer this question on my own, but didn't see it anywhere and I was curious about what all of you thought. (Also, if this is stupid, I'll be more than happy to delete the whole thread)

Birthday Candles... as offertory candles. That is to say, using them to burn on honey jars, bottle spells, etc. as a way to interact with the spell on a daily basis. What are your opinions?

I like them because unlike the 2hour burns, they give me a quick 10-15 minutes of daily interaction with a spell that I can literally sit with and pray over without interruption or worrying about other members of my household distracting me or questioning me about the candles. (I have a few going, and a few people in my house are... meddlers, we'll say.)

But, keeping in mind that the tiny candles are not traditional hoodoo, I was curious to know what other practitioners think about this method.

Blessings!

You can dress the candle with Lucky Mojo oils and focus your intention on it as you would any other pillar style candle. As you mention, the smaller size allows you a controlled period of time that you can focus on and not have distraction related to stopping the flame etc. You can also get birthday candle anchors and can anchor them in sand that is placed inside a votive holder, etc.

I love this idea!

Take care. :D

Lucylookingskyward, When you say that birthday candles "are not traditional hoodoo" i am not sure what you are trying to get at. Candles themselves are not as traditional in hoodoo as lamps, but so what?

Petroleum wax candles have been around since shortly after the Civil War, coloured candles began to be sold after World War One, birthday candles date back to the 1920s, and kerosene lamps went out of style when rural electrification came in between the 1930s and the 1960s. How "traditional" are you aiming for?

Here's a post from February 2009 where i am recommending birthday candles.

In all honesty, I had never heard of anyone using birthday candles in any magical practice before, though after lots more digging I discovered a few references to birthday candles in other threads. The idea just seemed like a curious and non-traditional invention... that is, taking a non-hoodoo thing like say gemstone magic and incorporating it into the ritual. All the same, I've never used petroleum wax candles in magic, only beeswax candles. I'm getting the feeling the candle sizes are more of a personal preference thing, but I was more curious to know what the rest of the forum thought about using the birthday candles instead of the other candles.

Hi, I understand your concern with candles in the home but there are lots of ways to safely burn candles in and around your home. Here are some options. I've used most of them:

In the bathtub
In a large oven-proof casserole dish
In the garage
In a ceramic flower pot
I've placed vigil candles in large, clear flower vases
I've placed vigil candles in large, glass jars that I cleaned out
You can use any non-flammable receptacle, really
I had an outdoor balcony with nothing flammable on it and burned candles there
In an outdoor barbeque
Pretty much anywhere outside. I've place my vigils outside under an over-turned ceramic flower pot. It protects them and has air holes so they don't smother.

There is an incredible energy around that little flame and once you start working with candles, you'll see that you can't do without!
good luck!

Multiple posts are not needed as you have posted this in another thread. In addition, this topic is not inline with this thread.

If you would like to banish anger you can simply get a black candle and dress it with banishing oil/powder. Or you can work with cast off evil.

Variety of Candles

I am about to attempt my first candle burn - and really my first working of any type. I'm using the "Retaining Health" ritual out of Gamache's book as a guideline and I have a couple of questions about the variety of candles I'm going to be using.

I ordered alter candles & anointing oils from Lucky Mojo and received them today - very impressed with the quality. When I ordered I bought a mixed dozen in the colors I need so all of my candles are the same size and shape. - but realized I need to order some holders since I don't have any that will fit the circumference of the candles securely. This got me wondering about whether or not I needed to differentiate between the astral candle I'll be using to signify myself and the candles used to draw health to me. Also, Gamache recommends using cross candles as the alter candles to designate the space.

I've looked through the forum and the LM site but really couldn't find anything that said it was necessary to differentiate between the candles based on their function, but the existence of figural candles suggests that differentiation is sometimes a good thing and necessary.

What have you all found in your experience? Have you had luck/no luck when all of the candles in a ritual are the same? Should I just get a larger candle to signify myself to emphasize the "attention" of the other candles toward it?

The use of figural candles is optional, but many people like to keep cross candles and a Bible on the altar when doing work for peace, healing, ans so forthy.

As for holders, the 4" star candle holders and 6" star candle holders are very economical.

Thanks for the input about the candles, catherineyronwode. I decided to get slightly larger candles for the alter & astral candles because it felt right that they be a bit different than the "worker" candles. I figure if this is supposed to be helping me and represent me then I should probably follow my instincts.

And those were the holders I was planning on getting, jwmcclin :)

Too Many Candles?

Unread post by AnnieR » Thu Feb 24, 2011 12:54 pm

Is there such a thing as too many candles for the same type of petition, i.e., such as money, increased business, financial security that are in a way all related?

We have a home-based family business that needs some"oommph" and more business coming in and a little "luck". Almost over the hump but need a push, continual positive energy,

I like to light several a month (I just happen to love the Lucky Mojo fixed candles as a personal spiritual reward)and all of my topics seem to be mostly related as for the end result, but I do not want to appear "greedy".

I have done Lucky Buddha, Lucky Mojo, Lucky 13, Road Opener, Prosperity, Bayberry, Money Drawing, Uncrossing, Money Stay With Me, Good Luck & House Blessing. I don't know if my way of thinking in burning them for ongoing luck/work is correct or overkill.

It is definitely changing for the positive this year and our business increasing, so I know they are helping. Is it better then to stop or continue burning until desired goals are met? But again I do want to be thankful/appreciative and not be construed as material-gain oriented. My family security (which is financially based) is our number one goal. We have had our business for 27 years with our son working with us as well. I know we are in the same predicament that many other hard working people are experiancing, so I know I am not alone, except that all of our eggs fall in one basket so to speak.

Are there any other recommended candles that I have not considered that might help to further my petition/goals?

I have had a fantastic reading with Miss Cat and followed her advice which has really made a stride for us but I want to continue the positive outcomes.

I appreciate all of the wisdom and advice I have read on this wonderful forum and thanks for the advice.

You received advice from the best. Many workers maintain an altar where they keep money drawing spells going continuously.

Yes, keeping continuous money drawing work going, is so beneficial!
It's not greedy it's just common sense. Keep that money pouring in.
You wouldn't stop working the day you get your paycheck.
Just to ensure no one viewed you as greedy for wanting money the next month as well.
Why stop the spiritual work?

Being grateful for what you have isn't apposed to wanting more of it. Not to me at least.
Good to hear the candles are working for you!

I, too, have noticed that the more continuously I work with my money drawing lodestone the better he helps me out. It is a continuing and very ongoing work, that I find benefits me more if I can tend to it DAILY. This has been going on for about a year now! Keep it up!

Good luck,

Thanks for the kind words of encouragement. I find them very comforting and beautiful to say the least. Each one seems to be an individual work of art.
Are there any other money drawing candles I should consider or combine to make it more powerful?
I should all add that I have enjoyed reading these forums for months and am amazed at the wisdom and knowledge presented here! Whew.

AnnieB --

You say, "I have done Lucky Buddha, Lucky Mojo, Lucky 13, Road Opener, Prosperity, Bayberry, Money Drawing, Uncrossing, Money Stay With Me, Good Luck & House Blessing" candles, and ask, "Are there any other money drawing candles I should consider or combine to make it more powerful?"

I would say that although there are other money-oriented candles, at this point what is needed is steadfastness of purpose and continuance of prayer.

We all have our personal favourites in terms of candles, and the oils and herbs with which they are dressed, but the reason that i make so many variations available is not that one is more powerful than another. Rather, i am seeking to sustain and keep in circulation the regional conjure traditions that developed over many years in the USA. I see great worth and historical depth in these subtle variations in conjure practices, according to what i have learned in my travels, and so it is my pleasure to offer the old-time Lucky Buddha candle of Chicago conjure alongside the more recent Prosperity candle of the Bronx and the way-old-time Money Drawing candle of Memphis.

Think of these variations in hoodoo candle forms, dressing oils, and herb mixtures as if they were dishes offered to you at a fine gourmet restaurant. Is the Southwestern Prawns Pan Seared with Orange Cilantro Sauce more likely to satisfy your hunger than the Roasted Breast of Capon Topped with Caper Butter? Probably not -- because they are both good food. But your taste-bud and aroma memories and sense of regional location may help decide to choose one over the other. And so it is with our array of money-drawing products -- enjoy the long list, and "taste" of them as you see fit. All are well-made, and all have the power of our prayers called into them.

Thanks Miss Cat, that makes a lot of sense.
I know that in the end I am in control of my own destiny and positive thinking/choices draw postive outcomes in my mind, but I sure like having the help. Like an invisible hand on the shoulder or pat on the back! Maybe it just makes me feel more confident and in touch with my spiritual side, but they do make me feel comforted. Putting into practice all elemants both physical and metaphysical has greatly enhanced my outlook.
I look forward to trying more candles and reading more of the forums!

I ordered a Lodestone and an Attraction Candle, sounded like a good combo and I haven't used those yet. The candles are just such a pleasure and treat to burn, it feels like a reward to myself!
Thanks again for the repsonses and guidance.

Can candles be set on foil or wax paper?

Unread post by BellaMars » Wed Mar 16, 2011 3:58 pm

I have been searching to forum for an answer to this question.

I recently found and cleaned up a large brass plate to burn my candles on my altar. I was wondering how people handle the candle wax melting on them? Do you just let it melt directly on the brass? Or can we line the plate with foil or wax paper so that its easier to dispose of any spell wax remains without having to scrape the plate?
Thank you St Anthony & St Martha for your help during my time of need

pink vs red candles for love

Unread post by ladydawn » Wed Mar 16, 2011 5:23 pm

do you prefer to use pink or red candles for love? I think of red as being used more for desire/lust/passion and sexual desire, or more short term, but strong, attraction and pink for romantic love or a long term relationship. Does this sound correct?

I have seen rootworkers use foil under candles in some of the pictures on the AIRR site. I personally use foil pie pans under glass candles ever since I had one break and spill wax all over. I plan to do the same with the honey jar spell I am planning.

Hope this helps!

I have used foil under my candles. (especially with reversal jumbo candles) Some people use sand some use dirt.
