The Proper Way to Burn a Candle
Lighting a candle is a physical action of sending out a prayer. But how do you know if the Universe hears your prayers? There are visual signs that you can look for as the candle burns to prove the Universe can hear your prayers. But first you need to know how to perform a simple candle burning exercise. I’ll tell you how. And once you master that, I will tell you what to look for to prove your prayers have been answered, or if you’ll encounter difficulties and delays. If it’s just not meant to happen, I can tell you how to look for those signs too!

Let’s take a simple candle-burning exercise from beginning to end. The goal is to prepare you so that you feel confident when performing this exercise on your own. .
1. Select the Appropriate Candle
For almost all candle exercises, I suggest the tall, candles in glass, which can be found in grocery stores in the Hispanic food section. Sometimes these candles may be labeled with images of Saints, religious icons, or angels. I suggest these candles because divination signs can be easily read along the glass as the candle burns. Additionally, these candles are inexpensive and usually burn from 5 – 7 days. I don’t recommend using the smaller tea light candles because they burn quickly, and it’s harder to decipher divinatory messages. I also don’t recommend using those freestanding candles not enclosed in glass because they will make a mess, dripping on your table surface. You could read the divination signs in the meted wax, but that is a much trickier task for a beginner.
Once you select a glass-enclosed candle, choose an appropriate color from the following list:
White: Spiritual practices, marriage or grieving and prayer. Also used for general purpose, or when other colors are unavailable.
Black: Repelling negativity
Green: Money-drawing or good harvest
Blue: Spirituality, health or a peaceful home
Purple: Conquering, mastery, and success in studying, exams, school
Brown: Court cases or finding lost items
Orange: Creating change
Yellow: Devotion, gratitude
Pink: Drawing romance and love or friendship
Red: Romance, sexuality, love and passion
2. Consecrate the Candle
Once you get your candle, you need to prepare it before burning. The purpose of preparing a candle is to establish a psychic link between the candle and your prayer. Holding the candle, announce your prayer or your desired wish. This creates a charge with your personal energy and programs your desires into the candle.
3. Set the Light
Light the candle, or “set the light,” and allow it to burn while concentrating on your desires and visualizing the desired outcome. Then place the candle on a special location such as an altar or area where you will frequently see it burning.
You will not blow out or extinguish this candle! Rather, eave it to burn for the entire duration, approximately 5 – 7 days. Should you need to leave your house and you want to keep it in a safe, pet-free, child-free zone, place it in your bath tub, shower stall, or in a deep sink to prevent a fire hazard. When you return, place the candle in the special location again.
4. Read the Signs
Be certain to take note of the progress of your candle and any signs that you may begin to see forming on the glass. You may even want to write down dates and times, noting your observations and what appeared, as the signs do change. The waxy buildup you see one morning may be gone later that afternoon, for example. Divination of signs by observing burning flames is known as Pyromancy. In looking at your notes in hindsight, you may be able to link divination signs to events in your life that affected your prayer.
Pay attention to the following signs while the candle burns:
The glass of the candle gives a clean, even burn with no signs.
This means things will go well and you will likely get what you wished for.
The candle flame flares, dips, and flares again and again.
First, make sure that this is obviously not occurring because you have set the candle in a draft. This is seen as a sign of partial response. It’s like two steps forward, and one step back. It’s a slow process.
The flame goes out before completely burning the entire candle.
This can be a bad sign, a negative reply from the divine, questioning your intentions. However, you can relight the candle with prayer (or begin a new candle), and be clear in the outcome you desire. Is it for your good, the good of others, and for the greater good of the Universe? Always allow your higher power to have the ultimate say with the result of your wish.
The candle flame sizzles, cracks, pops, or makes other noises.
This is interpreted as spirits (often as deceased ancestral guides) trying to communicate or assist you.
The candle burns very quickly.
A fast burn is good, but an extremely fast burn can mean that although the prayer may not last long. You might have to repeat the request or prayer again.
The candle burns extremely slowly.
A very slow burn signifies that the outcome is very slow in coming to fruition or that it will take time before you see results.
The glass has a run of wax droplets down the side of the candle.
These are knows as “tears” and they indicate difficulty or “tears” before the prayer receives an answer.
The candle burns, but leaves up to a half inch of un-burned wax at the bottom.
Un-burned wax at the bottom of a candle is a sign of unfinished business. Therefore, it is best to perform the exercise again, with a clearer intent or more specific desired outcome.
The candle creates a lot of smoke.
This suggests hidden trouble or someone working against your wish. Things may not go well at first, but with repeated effort, you may overcome.
A half clean and half dirty glass.
A black, sooty top of the glass which fades to a clear bottom certainly indicates that there is hidden trouble.
The candle cracks or breaks, spilling wax.
Generally, a broken candle glass is a bad sign.
5. Dispose of the Candle
Since the candle itself is a tangible extension of your prayer, you do not want to treat it as garbage when it has finished burning. You may choose to bury the candle in your backyard, keep it as a memory of your prayer, or consciously recycle it by disposing it in a recycling location and imagining the energy you put into the candle being recycled into the Universe. Most importantly, do not cast the glass into the garbage, as you would certainly not want to throw away your prayer or attained result. Show respect!
“It is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.” – Ancient Chinese proverb
