Rituals you can carry out with candles

  • Lighting candles is a way of asking your guardian angel for a special favor. So, which Angel numbers do you see?

  • The candles used should be new and if possible made of wax. Before any use, they must be "loaded": fill a small cup with pure olive oil and with the right thumb, grease the body of the candle from top to bottom (for banishment rituals, proceed in the opposite direction, from the base to the wick).

  • Use a different match for each candle, or light each candle with the flame of the first one. At the end of the ritual, extinguish them in the opposite direction of lighting, without blowing, because all the forces, all the energy they contain would disappear: it is better to blow them out between your fingers or use a snuffer. Finally, never use a candle twice in a row: throw it away, or if the ritual requires it, let it burn out until the end.
