Candle Altar Service – Setting of Lights Candle Ministry
I prepare candle vigils in your name and leave them continuously burning on our altars. These glass encased vigil candles burn between 5 and 7 days.
A candle altar service is also known as the setting of lights. Setting Lights is a prayer, a simple form of spellwork, to aid in helping achieve a desired goal. It is sometimes called a candle vigil or a candle altar service. Basically, the client lets me know what they want or need and this is written down on a piece of paper called a petition.
There are a number of reasons why people turn to another for candle work. Many times there are other people in the house that do not approve of any type of magical workings and could possible blow out or destroy a vigil candle. Others simply don’t want to leave a candle burning for that many days in their home unattended. Sometimes, the request a person has needs to remain a private matter and out of the sight of others. But, many times, clients say they prefer to having an experienced practitioner of magic dress and light their candle for them.
How Your Vigil Candle is Prepared
Based on what you asked for, I dress the candles with the appropriate herbs and oils for your situation then pray over and charge the candle with energy before lighting it. Also, your condition may require a specific color of candle. For example, green is the most common colored candle used in money drawing magic, blue for healing, red for love, etc. Candles are probably the most widely used form of magic and are used in a variety of spells, prayers, and rituals.
The candles I use are also known as seven day candles, but they may burn in five days time or some hold out and burn for as long as nine days. Your candle is placed on the altar in the order it was received. Most of the time, we have many candles burning and must wait a few days to make room for more. Usually, it is only about a week for your candle to reach the altar after it is ordered.
Making Out Your Request – Your Petition
How to make out your petition: When you purchase the candle, there is a section asking you to fill out your petition right above the “add to cart” button. The request on your petition describes your situation and what you would like to happen: to find love or friendship, help an ill friend, bring more money into your life, etc. Including birthdate information for all those involved is helpful.
Keep in mind, a petition is not a long explanation of your situation. It is a simple statement of what you want to happen. Also, if you would like to have a photo of you or someone to go along with your request, you may send those pictures as attachments to me in email. Including birthdates of all those involved is helpful.
Setting Lights in Runs
Setting lights – candle altar services are $24.00 per candle. I charge for the candle, the oils, the herbs and spices used. The act of praying over your candle and charging it with energy is a free service.
You can also have candles burned back-to-back. This is called setting lights in runs. Runs are offered in quantities of 3, 7, and 13 which are discounted according to the quantity you order. When your first candle burns out, your petition is placed on the next candle in the run and lit, where the process begins again. Some people choose to do this to “keep on top of” a particularly difficult situation. Please remember, all candles are burned here on our altars on your behalf — you will NOT be receiving candles by mailorder.
