As my mother would say,"The devil is busy". Went home last night and could not find my books. That's okay. I did enough candle rituals during the bad times that I remember what to do.
This candle ritual is from Sylvia Browne's Book, "The Other Side & Back." Take a white votive candle and a fireproof plate. For nine nights at precisely nine o'clock light the candle and say: "I am a blessed child of God. I am well. I am happy. Great abundance is on its way because, as God's child, I am empowered to create miracles." When I did this ritual I used the same white candle for nine nights, letting it burn for fifteen minutes the first 8 nights, and on the last night letting it burn out all the way.
White is a good all purpose color for candles. Green is for prosperity and employment, and orange is used to attract general good fortune. If you don't have green or orange, white will do.
One employment ritual that I did all the time (still do, as a matter of fact) involves taking a green candle in my dominant hand and mediating about my employment situation while holding the candle. This is called "charging" the candle. I would think about the interview going well, and how happy I would be when I got the call that I got the job. I visualized going to work each day, and being happy when I got my paycheck. I can't tell you how long it would take to meditate on your particular situation--each person is different. When I felt that the candle was charged, I put it on the plate, and as I lit it I said, "Great new job, come to me, as I will, so mote it be."
Sometimes I would also write out a short note describing the kind of job I wanted ---my own office, short commute, my own computer, no phones--fold that note up, and put it under the candle, then light the candle and say the prayer. You are probably not going to believe this, but right now I am working at a job with a short commute, my own office, my own computer, and no phones. I have attracted this type of job to me twice this year. This last one looks like a keeper.
Another thing you could do, if you have herbs in your kitchen, is to wipe any kind of oil--olive, vegetable--on the candle and then roll the candle in the herbs. I used one or two crumbled up bay leaves and pinches of cinnamon and ginger. You charge the herbs the same way you do the candle--hold them in your hand and concentrate on the result you want.
I got the information about the herbs and the candles from a book called "Everyday Magic", by Dorothy Morrison. I made the ritual up myself because I wanted something simple that wouldn't involve at lot of expense.
For Sherral I'm going to light a green candle tonight and visualise her going on the interview and getting the job. I'm going to let the candle burn for fifteen minutes tonight, and then let it burn out all the way tomorrow night. (By the way, it is said that if your candle flame is high and the candle completely burns out in 15 minutes, that your wish is going to come true quick, fast, and in a hurry! I've had that happen to me, too. And no, I don't drink, smoke funny cigarettes, or do drugs!)
Sherral, let us know how it goes. We're pulling for you!
