Candle magic- how to change your fate?
Until electricity was invented and became a public convenience, candles were the main source of light. Initially they were a commodity of the luxury shelf, so they decorated the rooms of the mighty, honored important events. Associated with the element of fire, in addition to light they carry an element of mystery, horror… Probably for this reason, too, candles became silent witnesses and participants in magical rituals. Thus was born a separate branch of magic, called, as you might guess, candle magic. This type of rituals combines the power of concentration and visualization, the hypnotic effects of a creeping flame and the healing effects of colors.
As part of the ritual being performed, after lighting a candle, it is a good idea to imagine oneself (or the person for whom the ceremony is being performed) surrounded by light of a color corresponding to the color of the lit candle. Such an action is called summoning a color. The same is done if, as part of the candle ritual, we want to ask for support or invoke some protective deity from the pantheon of Slavic or Celtic gods, or from other cultures. Then it is good custom to light a candle in the color attributed to that deity or goddess.
