How to Manifest Whatever You Want With Candle Magick

Candles are a staple item in any magickal tool. They are used to amplify and release energy, candle magick is driven by the element of fire, which represents transformation. Fire changes everything it interacts with, whether it’s turning a love letter into ashes or making water to. This transformational energy is what you’re channeling in candle magick, encouraging and accelerating changes in your life.


Following are some candle color correspondences that you can use in your own spells and magickal workings::


White – white candles are great for healing spells, peace rituals, and gaining clarity on any situation. They are also helpful when performing a house-clearing ritual to clear out negative energy and call in positive, serene energy again.

Pink – pink candles are wonderful for any kind of love spell, including self-love rituals to improve your self-esteem and promote a sense of happiness and joy in your life. You can also use pink candles for healing, especially if it is someone you love deeply. They can also be used to bring a peaceful end to conflicts and feuds with others.

Red – red candles embody the passion of lust, personal empowerment, inner strength, courage, and energy. Use red candles when you want to feel stronger, more proactive, empowered, or take control over your own circumstances. They are also great to bring more passion into your relationships, or more energy to your personal goals.

Purple – dark purple candles are great for enhancing your magickal powers, like energy work and spell casting. Light purple candles (like lavender or lilac colors) are good for softer pursuits like healing spells, love spells, and self-pampering. They can also help open your third eye and increase your psychic vision.

Blue – dark blue candles help trigger your psychic awareness and encourage prophetic dreams. Light blue candles would again be used for softer magickal workings, like healing, peace, etc.

Yellow – yellow candles are wonderful for mental stimulation and intelligence. Use them while studying or reading about new techniques. You can also use them on days you feel a little sluggish or sleepy mentally, as they will help energize you and make you feel more alert.

Orange – orange candles are good for stimulating your energy, both physical and mental. If you need some motivation and drive to complete certain tasks, an orange candle can help. You can also use orange candles to bring more lively energy into your home.

Green – green candles promote prosperity and abundance. They are perfect for money spells or any kind of abundance spell (like attracting a new job, a new home, etc.). Because they are the color of the abundance of nature, they can also be used in fertility spells.

Black – black candles are typically used to banish negativity, or bring an end to destructive habits. You can use them in decreasing spells (like quitting smoking or losing weight), or banishing harmful influences from your life (like destructive relationships, etc.).

While these candle colors are pretty specific, it isn’t always crucial to have the right candle color for your witchcraft spells. If you feel you need to do a spell immediately and you don’t have the right materials, just improvise!

Remember that the spell is more about releasing your own power and intention toward a specific outcome.


What are you trying to manifest?

Think of what you want to bring into your life. Be specific, realistic, positive, and kind. Clarify your intention in a single sentence, like, “I need to find a job that pays more and makes me feel excited.”

Create your spell.

The most basic candle magick spell is to simply visualize your goal, say a sentence, and light the candle to release the energy.

Choose the candle’s color carefully. Pick one that corresponds with the nature of your goal. You may also want to place relevant crystals, herbs, or flowers around your candle to amplify the right vibes.

To level up, you can check on astrology placements to align your ritual with the right energy from the cosmos. If it’s about love, maybe wait till Venus is in Libra. If you’re hoping to bring fresh opportunities into your world, you might choose a New Moon. Avoid Mercury Retrograde, naturally, unless you’re feeling like playing Russian roulette with the outcome of your spell.

Dress the candle.

Rub the candle with oil (any oil you have works, like almond, coconut, or jojoba. If you’re an essential oils fan, you can mix them in too). Rub the candle from top to bottom to send things away, to draw things to you rub the candle from bottom to top. As you rub the candle with oil, focus on your goal and mentally pour that vision into the candle. Continue dressing the candle for a couple of minutes, until you feel like it’s charged. You can also scratch names, numbers, or symbols in the wax if there’s something that’s relevant to your spell.

Get lit.

Then start to visualize your goal as if it has already happened. Imagine how you’d feel and what life would look like. When you have a clear mental picture, repeat your chant/song/poem or say your intention out loud. When you feel almost full of your goal’s energy and positive vibes, light the candle.

Focus on the candle’s aura and visualize it getting bigger and bigger. Then imagine it expanding beyond the room into the universe, beaming out and sending a signal to bring your intention to you. Hold this vision in your mind as long as you can. When you feel your energy waning or you start getting distracted, let the candle burn out all  and you’re done.
