May of 2014 was a particularly rough month for me. With many various concerns, I felt I was in need of general blessings. I read the info on a spell at one of my favorite sources. The spell actually calls for the name to be carved into the candle but I decided to just write my name instead (lazy.) I also made my oil to bless & anoint the candle with. I melted a bit of the candle and affixed it to the base which is a re-purposed lid from a small jar. Underneath the lid, a bit of my hair.
I burned a bit of the candle everyday, pinching the flame between my fingertips. I said the blessing just as written on the site. The only modification I did make to the latter of the spell was that I said the prayer/blessing twice a day, I felt I was much in need. For me, this spell was very effective. I noticed a change fairly quickly and was happy with the results.
