Free Candle Spells | Writing Petitions – Absolute or Shaky Hopefuls?

  In most candle spell traditions, writing a series of words on paper to effective bring about the desired outcomes is one of the core rituals one does when burning candles to bring about change, money and in matters of love and relationships. The petition paper becomes a focal point or an incantation written so that as it sites below the candle, the energy of the candle will draw down from the Universe and land on the petition. The light from a candle is considered a perpetual beacon of light and prayer as it sits on the petition during the candle burn. Afterwards, the petition is usually reused, burned in a burnt offering ritual to the Heavens or fashioned into a charm or some other mojo bag or jack ball to carry with the petitioner to continue the attraction power of the ritual. When it comes to candle burning spells or “setting lights”, one cannot be wishy-washy. I cannot tell you how many times I have had someone write a petition paper only to have words such as ‘hope’, ‘wish’ and ‘maybe’. It cannot be stressed enough that to write a good, concise and effective candle petition, you need to sit down and compose yourself before putting pen to paper. Here is a perfect example of a person being weak in the matters of writing a candle petition to burn a candle spells for matters of love. A young client of mine was ‘head over heels’ over a gentleman of whom was less enamored of her and wanted to ‘compare the selections’ of the town. He blew hot and cold in this girl’s life and his indecision and actions were making her a wreck. After a reading with her, it was indicated that she should burn a series of candles to solidify the relationship. I asked the young woman to write a petition of exactly what she wanted to happen from the candle spell. Her petition was something of this nature: ‘If he doesn’t want to be with me, then he needs to go away and leave me alone’. Huh? This petition was a head-scratcher for me, raised some red flags, and it was not good. She was asking for two things to happen and this would have been a ‘dud’ in any candle ritual spell. This candle petition was giving the ‘victim’ (not used in a malicious way) a choice – something which is not advised to do in a candle spell. Either you WANT them with you or you DON’T. A more effective petition for settling lights in a ritual to bring someone closer together would sound like this: “__________(insert name), I want you to love me and only me, to see me with eyes of tenderness and love. When you are away from me, you will be filled with longing for me and only me and will rush hastily back to my arms. __________(insert name) your eyes will only be focused on my beauty and figure and will not be enticed by the wiles and whims of other females and your passion will be reserved for me and only for me. __________(insert name), you will desire only to be with me and forsake me not for any other person.” This says it in a nutshell – desire only me and return to me always and immediately and without the propensity to stray with other females. In conclusion, just like shooting of an e-mail that you might later regret, write your initial petition and then take a break. Return to the petition a little while later and re-word it and make sure it says exactly what you...

Readers Question | What to do with Petitions?

Readers Question | What to do with Petitions? Note: I have saved this question until I was able to capture some photos to go with it for a deeper understanding. – J. Jacqueline, I have been doing some money and fast luck candle work and wanted to know what should I do with the petitions I write? My friend says I can keep them but things change and I don’t always use the same petition each time. Can I throw them away with the glass after the candle is done? What do you do with petition papers? Thanks, Julessa ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Hi Julessa, Thank you for sending in a good question. You would not know how many times I have gotten a personal e-mail about what to do with the ends of a candle spell for my candle burning rituals. Here are some great tips: If the spell is for banishing or sending someone away, take it all in a paper bag and leave it at the crossroads with three pennies next to it. Don’t look back. If the spell is for money, bury it in a container (preferably a covered decorated jar) of “lucky” green rice and keep it near your front door or bury it in the backyard to keep the money at home. If the spell is to keep someone from traipsing off (like a wayward lover) wrap it in a sock and bury it in the backyard. Can’t do this? Then get a large pot and place it in the dirt in it and plant a rosemary bush over it (Rosemary is a ‘woman-controls-the-house’ herb) If the spell is for general attraction of all kinds (luck*money*love) bury it at the front door or in a pot of dirt with basil (old time money drawing plant) planted on top of it and place on front porch at front door. If the spell is for protection, bury it in a pot with dirt and a green plant or flowers and keep by steps or front door. Live in an apartment building? Use a pot, real dirt and a fake plant. If it to attract love, wrap it in pink cloth with the appropriate herbs (odd numbers only) and pin to bra or waist of panties. (Really!) What I do when I burn candles for clients and the candle is done, I snap a photo of the end of the candle burn, then toss the glass in the recycling bin and save the petitions. I then pick a good day – major holiday, Sunday, or some astrological occurrence, and I burn them together outside with a mixture of white sage, frankincense and myrrh. I pray over them and it is essentially a ‘burnt offering’ to the Angels, Saints and the Heavens so they will answer your prayer. I took these photos to show what it looks like: Best case scenario, use your intuition. If you want something to stay close, keep it close. If you want something (or someone) to go away, then toss it at the crossroads or take it to a flowing stream or river. Hope this helps explain a little further.   J....

Readers Question | What to Do with Other Petition Papers

Readers Question | What to Do with Other Petition Papers Hi Jacqueline, I have read your suggestion about money petition papers. What if it is not for money but someting else? What do you do with petition papers that are secret wishes for things like good health or for better times ahead? Mary ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Mary, Let me tell you what I do with petition papers. As you know, I receive prayer requests from all over and place them free on my All Saints Altar, under the candles I am burning for others, so that they can “piggy back” on the candle intentions and have a little “oomph” for the Angels and Saints to hear. On Sundays, when I clean the Altar and reset things and such, I take those prayer requests and petitions, including the petitions that were attached to candles I have burned for clients, and I burn them on a charcoal that has frankincense and myrrh or other Holy Resins and Herbs on it, and let them burn, allowing the smoke to drift to Heaven. It is reminiscent of Old Testament times when burnt offerings were placed on fires in the Temple. You might want to do the same for your petitions. Get a aluminum pie pan and light some incense charcoal that you can get at a spiritual supply shop or Catholic store. Frankincense and Myrrh granules can be found there as well. Light charcoal, drop some incense grains on he coal, then place petition on top of it. Make sure you area is fire safe. You can add prayers or a meditation time during your burn, if you wish. Thank you for a good question! J....

Readers Question | How to Create a Honey Jar Petition

Readers Question | How to Create a Honey Jar Petition   This is the snippet of question that  I received from Amie regarding a petition paper for a honey jar spell that she was reading about on Free Candle Spells.   Amie wrote: If it for love, do I write the persons name and superimpose with my name??? How many times and in what way? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Amie, Here was how I was taught by cat yronwode, who has a Hoodoo Course that I took many years ago. First, get a clean white piece of paper and a marker. Then write your intended’s name on it nine times, one right under the other (see photo). The one you want to love needs to have their name written first, then yours. For this example, I am using the names Olive Oyl and Popeye, with Popeye being the one who is creating the honey jar. Then you will write your name on top of your intended’s name nine times, one name written under another, like in the second photo. For the photo, you will see not only Popeye’s name written across Olive Oyl’s nine times but also the last step of encircling it with a proclamation or spell intent. In this last step, which you will find the hardest to do, you MUST not lift your pen until you have joined the first and last letter together (very hard to do). If you err and lift your pen by accident, you must begin whole petition paper writing over again. In this example, I wrote “Marry me and live with me in a long lasting loving relationship” or something along those lines. Again, the most important part is that you write and spin your paper in a circular motion while writing and without lifting your pen. Once you have joined your first letter and last letter together with the pen stroke, lift pen and cross the “t’s” and dot the “i’s”. Now you can continue with your honey jar spell for love, placing in the center of the petition paper used tissues from intimate relations, a hair from his or her head, nail clippings, two matched Lodestones, cinnamon, rose petals and other items reputed to bring about love....
