Is someone dear to you going through a difficult time? Whether they are close by or far away, this light spell can help you shine a beacon to support someone in need.
Lighthouses are tall buildings that stand along the coast, sending powerful beacons of light across the dark ocean to help guide oncoming ships. Their light helps ships avoid deadly cliffs and shallow waters that would cause wreckage. Thanks to the work of the lighthouse and its keeper, travelers stay safe and encouraged on their journeys.
Lighthouses are also carriers of messages- their beacons are very bright and powerful so they can cross a great distance, but are adaptable and can interrupted in set intervals as a form of code. There are many lighthouse light codes, with perhaps the most famous being “143”- one flash, followed by four flashes, with a final three flashes of light. This signal sends the message “I love you”
With this spell, you are creating an energetic lighthouse. As the keeper of your lighthouse, you will be able to direct a powerful beacon of energy to help guide someone going through troubled waters so that they can continue their journey safely and surrounded by love.

Olive oil can be substituted for any pure carrier oil. Calendula can be substituted for another gentle healing flower such as chamomile (you can open a chamomile tea bag and use that!). Sage can be substituted with another healing and cleansing herb such as rosemary. Cinnamon powder can be substituted with another herb or spice associated with good luck, such as basil. Sea salt can be switched with another natural salt such as Himalayan salt or pure rock salt.
- Begin by making your simple spell oil (if you’ve never made one before, no worries- it’s easy! Additional tips can be found in the Make Your Own Magickal Oil Guide). For candle safety reasons, smaller pieces work best, so it’s recommended that you grind your calendula, sage, cinnamon, and salt into a fine powder.
- Mix your ground herbal powder into a small amount of olive oil.
- Anoint your candle with your oil by gently applying a light layer of the oil on your candle. You don’t want to apply too much oil or the candle flame won’t burn properly (or even become a fire hazard)- less is more!
Place your anointed candle onto your altar (or in another cleansed space) away from drafts.
Close your eyes and spend a few moments thinking about the person you are helping. Picture them, what they are going through, their emotions, and their own inner light that is struggling to shine. Reach out to them with your mind- it does not matter if they are physically near or far away. Send them a mental message that you are going to help.
Take three slow, deep breaths to ground yourself in the moment and be fully present. When you feel ready, light your candle.
As the candle flame sparks to life, feel the warm glow and beautiful light emitting from your beautiful blessed candle- this is your energetic lighthouse. And you are its keeper- you have the power to direct this magickal light wherever you choose.
Press the palms of your hands together in a gesture of prayer and respect Call out the name of the person you are healing three times, to be heard by your guiding spirits, deities, and the Universe. They will help your light reach its intended recipient.
For [person’s name] I shine this light.
May it bring them peace, surround them with love, and help them move safely through troubled waters to reach their destined shore.
So mote it be.
Continue to meditate on the person you are helping. Imagine them happy, healthy, and safe.
Allow the candle to burn out on its own, or respectfully snuff it to end the spell. Trust that your guides and the universe will continue to carry the light to illuminate the path of your spell recipient.
All spells require energy and intention to work- if you wish to maintain your lighthouse over a long period of time, it is recommended to refresh the spell by recasting it again after a full moon cycle.
