Candle magic is an old and powerful form of sympathetic magic. It is also one of the simplest types of magic to use for casting spells.
Candle magic can be simple or complicated, just as relationships can be. While you are free to customize this spell to make it as beautiful and complex as you please, that is not necessary to win back the affections of the one you love.
Natural beeswax or soy candles are preferred over petroleum-based candles, but you're not destined to a long, lonely life if you can't find that type. Any kind of candle will work - just make sure that it's never been burned.
Choose a red candle for passionate love, a pink candle for romantic love or a white candle for all goals. Once you have selected your candle, charge it with your specific intent: to open the person's heart to you, to make you and your situation more attractive in the person's eyes, to make the circumstances so that the environment is right for the person to love you again, to open their eyes to the truth of a situation ... be very clear as to the result you want.
Once you have charged your candle you are ready to cast the spell and clear the way to reunite with your special someone.
You will need:
In addition to your charged candle, you will need seven thorns from a red rose bush. If you do not have rose thorns, use straight pins.
(1) Prepare yourself for the spell by clearing your area and your mind. Relax and hold the candle while visualizing the desired outcome - your love running back into your arms, for example - as you send your energy from your hands into the candle.
(2) Carve the name of your love onto the candle using the tip of your athame, a knife, a nail or a pin, visualizing your love returning to you as you do so. Push the rose thorns or pins into the letters of your love's name.
(3) Anoint the candle using virgin olive oil, continuing your visualization, and then place the candle in its holder.
(4) Light the candle and continue to visualize the outcome as you think about the results you desire. Really see your love coming back to you, and concentrate only on that. Focus all your energy on the result as you watch the candle burn for a period of time.
(5) Repeat this chant three times: Powers of the universe / Bring ________ (first name) back to me / This is my will / So mote it be!
(6) Allow your candle to burn out or extinguish it safely.
Another spell you can recite as your candle burns down is: Bring back the love that I know, / With his/her return, our love shall grow. / Universe bring him/her back to stay, / Let our love grow stronger day by day.
If you cast a candle spell to bring back lost love, you're making your wishes known to the universe. Always remember that your spell must never interfere with the free will of the person, no matter how much you miss him or her.
