Flipping Candles

~To reverse very negative issues.
1. Purify and consecrate the candle.
2. Flip the candle upside down and dig th ewick out of the bottom.
3. Charge but do not anoint, then proceed with the spell.

Loading Candles

~For extra power. Works best with Pillars and jar candles.
1. Purify an dconsecrate as normal.
2. Heat the end of a carving tool, I like to use embroidery needles…just please BE CAREFUL they get really hot, use the heated end to make a hole in your chosen candle in either the top or bottom.
3. You can now stuff the hole with hearbs…tiny stone chips etc.
4. Anoint and charge as usual.

Extinguishing Candles

*Using a snuffer or pinching it out with wet fingers while saying:
“Though your flame is quenched in the physical realm…you still burn brightly in the astral realm, I say so be it and so it continues to be”
~Scott Cunningham~

Candle Purifications and Consecrations
* The information below is a mix from Gerina Dunwich’s Wicca candle Magick and The Enchanted Candle Crafting and casting magickal Light by Lady Rhea with Eve LeFay. all candles in their holders and place on your pentacle …if you do not have one then in your working space, I personally do this in a cast circle, also great to do during Imbolc. Make a sign of a banishing pentagram over th ecandles and say 3 times:

“I call upon the flame to summon Thee, O spirit of fire, I call upon the firedrakes, and the salamanders and all the positive creatures who dwell within the fiery realms, to draw you into this circle…Hear me, o Spirit!, hear me and rise…rise from the flickering flame(s) and exorcise this(these) creature(s) of wax and wick (wax glass/metal and wick).
Let any and all negativity contained within it(them) be now drivin out forthwith.
Let this (these) creature(s) of wax and wick (wax, glass/metal and wick) be cleansed, sanctified and blessed for my intended purpose(s)of magick.
In the names of every God and Goddess to whom the flame is sacred, I know consecrate this(these)candle(s) as a tool (as tools) of magick!”

2. on the third incantation make the sign over the candle(s) with your fingers or athame of the egual armed cross and say:

“So mote it be.”
