A Simple Wish Spell


wishing spellThis is an easy wishing spell that should be performed right before you go to bed.

You will need:

  • A candle
  • Pen and paper

Choose a candle colour which is appropriate for the type of wish (see the candle magick article for ideas).  This should be a new candle which you are only going to use for this wishing spell.

Before starting, get clear on your wish, and write it down on the piece of paper.  Put the paper underneath the candle.  Now take a few minutes to meditate and clear your mind of any stray thoughts.  Light your candle and concentrate on your wish.  While you stare into the flame, visualise it coming true.  How would you feel if the wish came true? Use all your senses to build a vivid picture of wish fulfilment.

When you have visualised for 5-10 minutes, take the piece of paper from underneath the candle and burn it while saying the following words:

Candle shining in the night
With your flame enchanted,
By the powers of magic might
May my wish be granted.
When the candle sheds its gleam
At the mystic hour,
Let fulfillment of my dream
Gather secret power.
Flame of magic, brightly burn,
Spirit of the fire.
Let the wheel of fortune turn,
Grant me my desire.
One, two, three – so mote it be!
