Anointing a candle Anoint your candle with the oil that you have chosen. This is done by placing a little of the oil on your fingertips. Grasp the candle at its midpoint with your left index finger and thumb, and use your right index finger and thumb to stroke oil on the candle from the midpoint up to the top of the candle. Next, grasp the candle at its midpoint with your right index finger and thumb, and use your left index finger and thumb to stroke oil on the candle from the midpoint down to the bottom of the candle. Charging a candle with your personal energy While ritually anointing your candle, visualize a pure white beam of light, entering your body through the top of your head. Envision the energy flowing throughout your body and mingling together, finally concentrating in your hands, causing them to feel warm and to tingle. Now continue to stroke your candle until you feel the energy from your hands transfer to the candle. Your candle is now charged with your personal energy.
Inscribing a candle
If you wish to use the candle to send out or banish something and have it go away from you, hold the candle at the midpoint and use you Athame or Boline to carve your desires from the midpoint out to the ends. To draw or bring something in to yourself, hold the candle at the midpoint and inscribe it from the ends toward the mid point. As you inscribe your candles envision what you are wanting to happen, see it either coming towards you or going away from you. Keep you thoughts kind and positive as you do so.
