Burning Bright: Using Candles for Good Luck in History
The Power of Candles
There are many people who have all sorts of superstitions and a range of luck related rituals they use when gambling online. Bingo players can be a particularly superstitious bunch. But remember that these superstitions will have no bearing on your online bingo games. Bingo is a game of complete chance.
If you’re into the more spiritual side of life, or even if you’re just interested in learning about something new, we hope you’ll enjoy this article.
Candle burning spells have been used for a range of reasons and for possibly thousands of years.
It isn’t surprising that the origins of working with candles are so ancient; consider the awe and mystery that light and fire had on our ancestors.
Fire is of course referred to as “’the spark of life’, and therefore has been viewed with respect, especially because of its primal power to nourish as well as destroy.
Candles and Good Luck
Candles have been used in spells for good luck in history and mythology. It is easy to get started – all you need is a candle.
Another thing that is essential to keep in mind is your intentions – only practice white magic.
White magic is only for creating positive energy and results, and this should be your mindset before you get started with any candle work.
Colours have different energies and properties, so you should adjust the colour candle you use accordingly.
To dress a candle means preparing it with oil as you visualise your wish. There are a wide range of essential and blended oils available, and these can also have a bearing on candle work. For the beginner however, just a basic virgin olive oil you can find in the supermarket will work fine.
Going in one direction, rub the oil from the centre towards the top end of the candle.
Start at the middle of the candle, and with your fingers, rub the oil outwards to the base. Finish anointing the candle by rubbing the olive oil from the middle of the candle up to the top. As you’re dressing the candle, think about the good luck you desire and visualise the end result.
You can do a more advanced spell that involves inscribing and reciting some words, but this is just a basic introduction to the art of candle work.
