Book: A Little Book Of Candle Magic by Dj ConwayThis book shows how to use candles as magical tools to find a mate, achieve enlightenment, or improve life materially or spiritually. In A Little Book of Candle Magic, D. J. Conway gives a thorough introduction to tapping the reservoirs of magic in candles. Sometimes including oils and herbs in her spells, she begins by suggesting that novices start with a small goal they wish to accomplish. She provides chants, meditations, and affirmations and encourages readers to create their own.
The beauty of this book lays within its simplicity! I began exploring the more traditional Witchcraft books at approximately ten years of age. One was called 'Mastering Witchcraft' by Paul Huson, copyright 1970. I am unfamiliar with any revised editions because after 25 years I still have my original copy. This is how I began my journey down the magickal path; spending countless hours casting complicated, expensive spells. The 'training' was well worth it as it enhanced my abilities and concluded with me becoming a High Priestess. Still, the more experienced, knowledgeable, and wiser I become the less I find that I need to perform convoluted (or better known as 'advanced') rituals in order to achieve amazing results. You, too, may discover that any dependency on said rituals, as well as costly tools of the trade, vastly diminishes the more developed your own powers become ;-)
A Little Book of Candle Magic provides a brief history of candle/fire usage in religion; information on a variety of candle types and colors; corresponding oils, stones, herbs, incense; how to construct an altar; effective days/times in which to perform your candle magick; a small array of spells that focus on career, love, healing, protection and, oh, so much more! It is an excellent resource for both the beginner and advanced practitioner alike; teaching newbies the basics and reminding the learned that magick can be both simplistic AND potent!
