A Candle burning ritual

From: Doreen Valiente's Natural Magic

Best: Do last thing at night then go to bed with the thought that the ritual 
will succeed. Select a candle of an appropriate colour. The candle should be new 
and never used for any other purpose.

Anoint the candle to impress your thoughts on it and to consecrate it to your 

Before starting get clear on what you wish, then write your wish on new paper. 
Put this paper under the candle holder.

Lower or turn off other lights. Rub the anointing oil on your fingers and gently 
rub it onto the candle.

Light the candle and sit in quiet concentration upon your wish. Above all 
visualize the thing you want.

Use the burning candle as a focus of concentration.

When you feel that you have concentrated for long enough take the paper and burn 
it in the flame of the candle, with the thought that you are now projecting your 
wish into the beyond to find fulfilment.

Say this invocation .....


          Candle shining in the night
          With your flame enchanted,
          By the powers of magic might
          May my wish be granted.
          When the candle sheds its gleam
          At the mystic hour,
          Let fulfilment of my dream
          Gather secret power.
          Flame of magic, brightly burn,
          Spirit of the fire.
          Let the wheel of fortune turn,
          Grant me my desire.

          One, two, three - so mote it be!

Allow the candle to burn itself out.
