Candle Magic

Candle magic is a very old and powerful form of what is called "sympathetic magic," this type of magic is based on the belief that your environment can be influenced through an object ( in this case, a candle) and the focusing of your energy or will. I like to compare it to going into a room with a big smile...sooner or later the smile becomes contageous and others begin to smile too. It is also one of the simplest types of magic to use and a person doing the spell can make it as simple or as complicated as they desire. Fancy complicated rituals are not necessary and once you are familiar with the basics involved in candle magic, it is simple to customize a spell to your needs.
