Candle Magic: A Coveted Collection of Spells, Rituals, & Magical Paradigms
Candle Magic: A Coveted Collection of Spells, Rituals, & Magical Paradigms by Phillip Cooper is one of my favorite books on candle magic. It is straight forward, practical, and effective.
Excerpt from the back cover:
For centuries, people have used candles to light their homes and brighten their lives. They have been used in churches, temples, and religious ceremonies all over the world to warm and awaken the hearts of those seeking union with spirit. Candle energy is magical energy, probably the simplest, most direct and effective magic you can work. Candle Magic has everything you need to begin your exploration into the fascinating world of flame and wax. Using Cooper's techniques for training your mind and working with the energy of candles, you can change your life and help others.
Cooper firmly believes that you must learn a few basic techniques and begin some inner work before you can effectively practice magic. He teaches the power of visualization, explains how to choose candles, and describes planetary correspondences so you can harness the correct energy for any endeavor. Also explained are the basics of creating candle rituals, making and working with incense, using image wax and anointing oils, and the importance of color correpondences.
The magical use of candle energy can brighten your attitudes, help focus your attention, provide abundance, help you with healing, and draw more love into your life.
