Q: How long do I have to wait for results?

A: That depends on what you are trying to accomplish, and on your own ability to visualize and concentrate.  Sometimes results happen very quickly, and sometimes the obstacles in front of your goal take a little more time and effort to get through.  This does not mean that it won’t happen, so be patient.

We suggest trying one kit first, and once your spell has had a reasonable chance to work, performing additional spells if necessary, once you have a better idea of where you stand.  You may not need to do anything else at all, so be patient and give your spell some time to work. This may take a few days or even weeks.

Q: Is there anything else I can do to make my goal manifest more quickly?

A:  Yes.

In all spellworking, creative visualization is key to accomplishing your goals.  This means that the more you can “see” your desired outcome in your head as you are focusing on your candle, the better your outcome will be.  Click here for more on creative visualization.

You can also do your ritual at the suggested time on the suggested day, which will increase your chances of success.  The best time and day for doing your spell will be included with the instructions in each kit.

Each time you put your candle out and relight it, concentrate again on your goal manifesting. Use this as an opportunity to re-charge your candle and re-visualize your goal.

Do anything you can to assist that spell externally, in other words, if you are trying to manifest a date to the prom, get out there and meet people, tell your friends you want a date, etc.— do whatever you can to help yourself.  If you are trying to win a new job, send out your resume, check job listings, etc. along with doing your spell.  

Q: How do I burn the candle?

A: You can use a candle holder, a ceramic container, or a glass dish.  We suggest covering any dishes you use in aluminum foil for easy clean-up. Whatever you choose to hold the candle, it must be fireproof, and it must hold or contain the candle securely until it is burned all the way out.

To keep the candle in place if you are using the dish method, burn a little wax from a white candle onto the surface of the dish first, then stick the spell candle on top of the melted white wax while the wax is still wet. This will help keep the candle in place.

Make sure to burn the candle ALL the way out. Your spell may not work if you do not do this.

Q: How do I dispose of the candle and supplies after the candle burns out?

A: The best way is to bury your leftover supplies in the earth, but this is not always possible, especially if you live in a city. If you have no other options, dispose of the leftovers in the trash.

Q: Can I put the flame out and light it again?

A: Yes. ALWAYS put your candles out before leaving them alone. Unattended, lit candles are the number one source of house fires in the US, according to firefighters and countless studies. So yes, put your candles out and light them again when you are able to monitor them.

Remember to re-visualize your goal each time you re-light your candle. For tips on creative visualization, click here.

THE MAGIC CANDLE SHOP DOES NOT ADVOCATE LEAVING CANDLES BURNING UNATTENDED AT ANY TIME.

Q: The candle in my spell kit is encased in glass. What happens if the glass candle breaks or turns black while it is burning?

A: Glass-encased candles, or novenas as they are also called, sometimes crack and/ or blacken. This does not mean that your spell isn’t working anymore, it just means that the wick is tilted slightly to the side. Don’t worry about it, and continue burning your candle (putting it out when you are not around to monitor it and then relighting it when you return) until such time that your spell until it is finished. 

While it is extremely rare that a novena may break, it does occur on occasion.  For this reason, we recommend burning your candle in a safe place where they will be away from people and remain undisturbed.

Q: What is a novena?

A:  A candle that is encased in thick glass.

Q: Where should I burn my candles?

A: Anywhere that is fireproof and away from flammable objects.  Do NOT place candles near flammable or combustable substances such as gas or chemicals, or place them into flammable areas such as a tub with hanging shower curtains.

Use your best judgment and common sense about fire safety, especially if you have children or pets who might knock them over or play with them when you’re not looking, and NEVER leave candles unattended, even if they are encased in glass.

Q: Can I leave my candles burning while I am not around to keep an eye on them?

A: We don’t suggest it, and we do NOT advocate this in any way—see above answer about where to burn candles.

It is fine to put your candles out and relight them when you come and go. Each time you relight your candle, concentrate again on your desire once more—these moments are opportunities to recharge your candle with your intentions.

Q: Can you do the spell for me?

A: We do not perform spells on anyone’s behalf, we simply supply the materials.

Q: Can I have someone else do the spell for me?

A: If you wish.  That is a personal decision.  Make sure they understand what they are doing, and that you trust them to perform the spell properly.  There are many people who will try to rip you off who don’t necessarily know what they are doing. If they are trying to charge you hundreds of dollars, walk away and either do it yourself or find someone else who won’t charge you as much. 

Q: Can I wear the candle dressing on my body?

A: No. Some of our oil dressings contain semi-irritant oils, and are NOT meant to be worn on your skin.  We do sell other oils that are specifically for wearing on your body—these are essentials cut with a base of jojoba oil that makes the blend safe for you to wear. 

As with all oils/dyes/perfumes/etc., and especially if you have sensitive skin or are pregnant or nursing, make sure read the directions that come with each oil before applying, and always test out an area behind your knee or near your elbow first, to make sure you won’t have a reaction. It is advisable to wait at least 24 hours before placing it on other parts of your body.

Q: I am Christian/Catholic/Jewish/Islamic etc. Will these candles work for me?

A: Yes.  Our candle dressings are not derived from any specific religion, rather from ingredients that correspond to universal planetary and elemental aspects, according to the principles of alchemy. The universe and planets are not specific to any one religion, nor are the elements of fire, water, air, and earth.

Q: Can you make me a special candle if I don’t see it offered for sale on the website?

A: Yes. Describe your need in a detailed email and send it to info@magiccandleshop.com.  Please be advised that the Magic Candle Shop reserves the right to deny any request or refuse any service to anyone at our discretion.  We receive a lot of requests, so be patient-- we will make every effort to respond to you quickly.

Q: Can I do more than one spell kit or candle at the same time?

A: Yes, if they are both spells that are aimed at the same goal, for example, a Money Draw and a Marriage Proposal, if you are trying to land a rich spouse, or a Fast Divorce and a Protection kit, if you are trying to break up with a spouse who has a meddling family or a nasty lawyer.  Just be sure that when you do your spells, you concentrate on one goal at a time when you light your candles. 

For beginners, it's best not to do spells that both attract and repell things in your life at the same time, for example, a Bring New Love and a Fast Divorce. 

If you have a situation where you want to get something away from you and bring something new to you at the same time, start with the getting rid of whatever is bothering you first. For example, if you are in a middle of a messy divorce and you want to meet a new love, start with a Fast Divorce, wait until you see results of some kind, and then concentrate on bringing in a new love.

If you're not sure about when to do each spell, you can buy more than one kit at a time to save on shipping and keep them for whenever you think you may need them.

Q: Do I have to wait for a particular time of day and time to do my spell?

A: Generally, no.  If you need to get something done right away, just do it. If you have the time to wait for the best alignment of universal aspects, follow the instructions enclosed in the kit you purchase—each kit will have instructions detailing the best time and day to do your magical work, specific to that kit.  By doing your work at the appointed time, you can only increase the effects of your magical intentions, but in an emergency, you can do your spell anytime.
