The wick is the quintessence of the candle. Quintessence is the vertical reflection of Essence into matter and is at the center of every material thing. Although quintessence is a material principle because it is a perfect reflection of the Spirit to become one with the quintessence is in effect to become one with the Spirit. When the candle burns while air is flowing directly into the flame the wax is flowing into it indirectly by means of the wick. The lower action reflects the higher.
Melting candles that drip, can produce patterns from the dripping that can have meaning for the person near the candle.
Candle burning is one of most simple forms of magic. It can be performed most anywhere and candles are really easy to purchase. The basic principles are to concentrate, visualize and focusing (willpower) on the candle as a symbol.
Candle magic can be used for overcoming bad habits, attracting things, settling disturbing atmospheres, protection, regaining health, developing psychic powers, etc. Choosing a Candle

Working With Candles: Candle Gazing
Find a quiet place, free of disturbances, people, phones, pets, fans, air conditioners that might disturb the flame.
You may use soft background music.
Some people enjoy using incense.
Make clothing comfortable, remove eyeglasses or contacts.
Make the room dark, the only light being the flame of a candle used. I prefer spiral candles or large thick candles that last for hours.
Sit in a relatively comfortable chair with the candle approximately an arm’s length distance in front of you, perhaps at a kitchen table.
You could also place the candle on a coffee table then sit on the floor, as many people are comfortable in the lotus position.
This can be a method of self-hypnosis. In this case send your a message that you are to return to consciousness after your messages / messages have been given.
You can state your intention before you begin focusing on the flame of the candle, such as, “I want to see myself in a past life that links to this one.”
Now gaze at the flame. Look at the flame. Breath deeply and evenly, in through the nose and slowly out through your mouth.
As you look at the flame, you can see that it is actually made of the colors of the rainbow. Subtle shades of red glow at the very tip of the flame. Your passion, your physical body are being left behind, as a faint reminder of who you are.
The orange that follows spans a short time on the flame. Your anchor on this earth, also reminds you that there is a life on this plane.
Then, the yellow, the most prevalent, the most powerful part of the flame draws your attention. It burns as your creativity, yearning to burst free and shower you with its inspirations.
Your eyes follow down and see the tiny segment of green, your center, your growth. This is where the bountiful harvest of your life lies.
Feel the growth and abundance everywhere in the universe before you fall into the blue at the base of the flame. The blue, the higher emotion of your secret self burns brightly if only you look at it.
Below it, barely perceptible, is the violet of your spirit. This is the same spirit that resides within you, but it is barely perceptible day to day. You must catch it unawares to know it. As you watch your flame/spirit, Let the violet flame enlarge and envelop the blue, green, yellow, orange and red of the fire. Let your spirit enlarge to fill you in the same way.
As you inhale, feel your spirit fill you with the light of the candle.
Breathe the flame. Become one with it and the essence of the source of creation.
Close your eyes.
Breathe your spirit. Find your LIGHT.
Visualize your descent down a long and beautiful spiral staircase and when you reach the bottom of the staircase you will see three doors. [Remember that consciousness spirals into reality. Three=manifestation in the physical].
Choose a door.
Wait patiently for your subconscious mind to open it.
When you go through the door, relax your mind. Patiently watch your inner screen, in front of your forehead (third eye chakra) for images.
You may see colors or shapes, people or places. You may hears tones.
Often images will drift into your awareness which may not make sense to you at first. These are your archetypes for awakening / remembering your mission, who you are, why you are here.
If nothing appears to you when you first do this exercise, you will benefit from experiencing the meditative state and your mind will become conditioned for self-hypnosis and past life regression.
After receiving your messages, you may enter the other doors or return upstairs.
These messages should be recorded when you are finished, as they will make sense later on.
You may want to draw what you see or create a short story about it.
Candles and Past Lives
Again set the ambiance for peace, quiet, relaxation.
This exercise involves two people.
Use a tall candle, one that is drip less, or a wide candle on a saucer-like holder.
An audio / video tape recorder can be used to record messages given.
Sit across from the other person. The lotus position is often best as you need to be face to face. If this position is too difficult, sit on two chairs facing each other.
One person is to hold the candle to the side and front of their face, you will easily determine the distance once you begin.
You must try to not blink to often and remain as still as you can.
There is a tendency, when the other person tells you what they see, to respond emotionally or physically, talk or laugh.
The person not holding the candle will now relax, wait, and soon see your facial features change.
When they change, that person my have a message for you about who they are seeing and anything related to that person, thoughts that enter their minds.
