One of the easiest ways for beginner’s to break into the craft, is to perform a ritual involving a 7 day jar candle to acquire one’s desires quickly. Properly used, burning a 7 day candle as part of your ritual is a safe, yet effective way to produce the results that you are after. It combines the intention with action, to build momentum into your spell. Here’s what you should know if you are interested in using candle magick.
What Is A 7 Day Jar Candle?
As the name implies, a 7 day jar candle is a candle that is contained within a jar that is intended to be burned over a period of 7 days. Typically, they’re made out of beeswax, but you can also find soy and paraffin wax candles as well. The purpose of placing them within a jar is that it contains the melting wax, and it allows the candle to remain lit for several days.
They’re often used as standalone tools for a single ritual, but they can also be used as a compliment to other ritual tools. They are available in a variety of colors to be used for specific spells for such things as love, protection, wealth, health, astral travel, energy release, and more.
Although traditionally they are intended to be burned to completion over a period of about 7 days, there are other acceptable ways to burn them.
There is no set restriction in using a 7 day jar candle and an individual can use them in several different ways. We will explain two of the more common methods for using these ritual candles in a ritual or spell.
Using Them Correctly
7 day jar candles can be a great way for beginners to begin to break into the craft. Quick and easy to use these ritual candles are capable of bringing about ones desires pretty quickly if they are used properly. Many people new to the craft express concerns that they could burn their house down if they leave the candle burning when they aren’t around.
This is a valid concern, and one that you want to avoid as you’ll want any mental stress while working candle magick. Your mind must be focused on the intent of your spell to allow your energy to be directed toward the spell’s successful completion. Your worries will detract from that.
There are some options that will increase the safety of burning the candle continuously over several days, at times unattended. For example, you can place it in your fireplace, bathtub, or sink while you’re asleep or away from home. It’s not necessary to move the entire alter into that space. When you are able to attend to the candle, move it back to the altar.
Another option is to burn it for a shorter or longer period of time. It’s not absolutely necessary to burn the candle continuously, though it is recommended, particularly for some rituals such as healing spells. For others, you can snuff out the candle and relight it at times more convenient for you, until it has burned to completion.
Interpreting The Results
In the spiritual world, coincidences simply don’t exist. Rather, they’re considered to be signs to guide you and your workings. Similar to reading tea leaves, burnt candles provide insight to the effectiveness of the spell, and any problems or solutions that may be applicable. The most recognizable way to interpret a burning candle for beginners is by its soot. Here’s some tips to help you interpret your results:
*Black Soot: Represents negativity. If it is only at the top or perhaps stops in the middle of the jar, the negative obstacle has been removed. If it covers the jar from top to bottom, it means that your working has been blocked.
*White Soot: Can represent spiritual communication, exorcism, or purity. It can mean that your working has no negativity blocking it, particularly in unhexing rituals. If the soot is only located on one side, it’s a sign that something that you’re doing is incorrect, or that the spirits aren’t happy with the candle itself. Its presence only on the bottom indicates outside help, either spiritually or physically.
Fire has always been a part of human spirituality, and it remains very much so today. In fact the origin of the candle was for spiritual intention. The next time that you want to obtain money, love, health, or anything else. Give candle magic a try, and see what kind of results you can get!
