🕯 Weekly Witchy CHALLENGE- Of Candles and Flame

I did a farewell ritual for a friend who passed away last month.
I used a purple, white and black candle.

Purple to aid me to go deeper into my meditation, white for purification and cleansing and black to help protect and absorb the negative energy I was feeling.

I used rose, sage, lavender and bay leaf in the dish.
I burned incense.
Had rose quartz, black tourmaline, and clear quartz present

I anointed my candle with Frankincense oil - this oil is said to ease the burden and lighten the emotions from grief.

Thank you very much. It was a sudden and tragic accident. He climbed cell phone towers and he fell from it and did not survive… 33 years old and left behind a wife, 2 children and a devastated mother. So sad.

Last night I did some small scale experimenting with melting down candles and discovered a way to have a tealight candle with three flames! :fire:

Besides the dramatic effect I could melt the wax quicker and on a larger area that way with just two extra matches! When it was liquid enough I extinguished the flames and quickly added in some lavender essential oil for sweet dreams and mixed it in. Once I could touch the metal I put the candle in the fridge to cool it down.

I put the finished candle on my nightstand making sure there was nothing flammable nearby, lighted it and thanked it for bringing me sweet dreams and peaceful sleep :relieved:

Soon after lighting it I could feel a sense of calm on me and reduced mental chatter (which flared up again when I went to the bathroom so I noticed the clear difference!)

I fell asleep with the candle burning, it lasted for about 4 hours giving off a very gentle lavender scent. Restlessness at bedtime often keeps me up and I’ve tried different things for it, this feels the closest to a solution I’ve come across yet, I’ll definitely give it another try! :blue_heart:

Did you know the flame and wax of your candle(s) during your spell work, meditation, etc can be interpreted and have different meanings?

Every time I do spell work with my candles the flame and or wax ends up different every time. The burn time for mine is usually the same for me (I use chime candles)

For this challenge, I did a relaxing meditation with my candle that’s surrounded by amozonite crystals. Amozonite is said to soothe the nervous system. Who couldn’t use that? I thought the dragon flies just added a nice touch.


And here’s the meditation I used.

This is a simple spell for general good luck. I’m using a green candle for luck, dressed with High John The Conqueror oil and having a rune ANZUS carved in it for good fortune.

To go with it I have this spell:

Goddess Fortuna send me good luck

To help me through this week or else I’m stuck

I need your blessings and your aid,

so all my endeavors will have it made.

So grant me good luck and hear my plea

an harm it none, so mote it be!

Let the candle burn down if you can, or else snuff it out and then burn later till it’s gone. Make sure you specify good luck, or else you may get bad luck.

I use candles coooonnnnssssttttaaaaannntttlllyyyyy! I will be making some soon, I promise! But just so I don’t miss the deadline for the challenge I’ll sneak in what I’m up to today!

Today being a Sunday I’d normally light a yellow/orange candle for happiness/success and that’d be my focus. Today I wanted to tie in a little self-love.
I found this super-handy info about Orange candles on our very own site and decided this was the way to go. Positive thinking, emotional healing, self-respect. Yes.

I have a lovely cup of turmeric, ginger, honey and lemon tea (with cinnamon cos cinnamon), I’m burning bright sunny citrus incense, I have my Sunday crystals everywhere!
I lit my orange candle, breathed in its energy and light and repeated this gorgeous affirmation I found in ‘Sacred Self-care - Everyday rituals for a more joyful and meaningful life’ by Chloe Isidora (a beautiful book by the way).


I am ready to commit to myself. I am ready to set aside time for myself. I am ready to love myself. I am ready to respect myself. I am ready to honour myself. I am ready to treat myself as sacred. I am ready to say YES to being ME.

And now I’m off to try my new Divination oil while I do a Weekly tarot spread! :kissing_heart:

It’s 11:33 pm as I’m typing this. I believe that everything happens for a reason and in Divine Timing. I really needed to hear the dragon fly message from you @Limeberry :heartbeat: it completely resonates with me. I got teary eyed bc it’s just something that I need to hear during a hard time. I’m so grateful for @Francisco for joining so many intelligent and caring individuals. Thank you for lifting my heart! :heart::pray::metal:t3:

Thanks, @TheTravelWitch! I wasn’t too sure about the rhyme in the chant so I tried to keep it simple. And the gargoyle kitty is Pookie. He protects my computer. LOL.
