This week’s Candle Magic Tip has to do with burning negative candles first then positive candles after. What I mean by this is negative candles are usually candles that we are using to either transform ourselves or trying to get rid of the negative energy or the blocks in our lives. Since I do a lot of magic candles at my shop I will use my candles as examples in this post.
Negative candles in my shop would be pretty much the black ones I have such as banish and transformation candles. You can also use the white candles such as Cleansing and Protection to remove negative energies as well . So if you have purchase any of the following candles, I recommend you burn those candles first. Usually, its because we are getting rid of the bad that no longer serves us so that we can be open to absorbing the more positive energy whether it be for love, love thyself, money candles etc… Now a good reminder is don’t get all candle happy. By that I mean give it a bit of time for the energy to set in from the first candle, perhaps a few days or couple of weeks. Black candles like mine can really give a big shift and it can be very much doing its magic along the way. In this case you want to wait a bit before you burn your first positive candle. It helps give that balance in your life if you do it this way.
If you are working with more than one black candle, I would do one black candle first then light a positive candle… wait this out and see how you feel before you Burn another candle. Then you can burn another black candle and follow up with another positive candle thus it will help you flow better. You won’t be feeling so all over the place… you may still get moody but at least it wont feel so off the wall. Sometimes if we are burning all the black candles first we just might be too worn out and not in the mood to light those positive candles. Oh one more thing, do not burn negative and positive candles together or at the same time. Finish one candle then burn the next candle. trust me, you will thank me for this. You will feel all over the
place if you try to do them at the same time. Since we are working with balancing emotions, we want to take it one step at a time.
Another effect I wanted to explain is Negative candles are great for healing. They aren’t as evil as people might think. In fact here’s a good example, the Transformation candle really does get some people moody for the first time. If this happens to you its because you have some real deep issues to work through in your own core and the candle is trying to pull it out from you. It could be that you have been avoiding it or not facing the truth of your own self for years so its bound to make you feel down in the slumps. But on the upside to this is you will end up feeling lighter later and not allowing whatever issue it was to haunt you again. The good news is if you decide to purchase another similar Transformation candle, it should be a bit easier to handle. As you heal and release things out your own core, you will find, the Transformation and Banish candles are your best friends. It’s always the first candle that is the toughest and over time as you transform yourself these candles become more soothing to work with. If you don’t get moody on your first black candle more power to you because it shows that you are more on a healing path and you may not have as many deep issues within yourself to deal with.
Now, let me give another example, how about a Love situation… yes everyone likes to do love candles don’t they?? Hence, the picture of the Transformation and and Love and Healing candles here this is a good combo to work with if you want to work on the relationship you have with your partner… especially if you are having issues in the relationship or perhaps you want to reconnect with your partner. If this is the case burn the Transformation candle first then the Love and Healing candles. Why? Because if you think about it, both partners needs to do their own self transformation first. If both partners are making changes within themselves first then they will healthier enough to express themselves each other which helps open doors easier to communicate more clearly with what they are both looking for in a relationship. This helps both partners to have balance and not be as argumentative. It also helps being more considerate of one’s feelings and teaches both partners how to compromise so the relationship works better in a more balanced way.
Now, if you are trying to move on from your partner then yes you would burn your Love and Healing candle first then your Transformation candle later.This would be giving you closure to whatever it was that you had with your partner and preparing yourself for a new beginning and open the doors for someone better to come along the way. In this case, because there are 2 mini Love and Healing candles and 1 big transformation candle… You would burn one mini Love and healing candle and then go with the transformation candle… then go back and burn your last mini Love and healing candle. If you are trying to attract love after that, then I recommend the New Love candle after wards. Again I wait a bit and let this energy balance as candle magic can have lots of power and we want the universe to get everything balanced in your life with all that candle magic you put out there before we welcome someone better to come along the way.
