Free Candle Spells | Why Your Love Candle Spell Isn’t Working – Pt. 1

I have recently seen a pattern in regards to the line of questioning that I am getting in my e-mails regarding love spells. It seems that there are those who are not happy with the outcome or how long it is taking. I thought I would write an article to address some issues or situations that you may be having or are seeing with candle spell work. This is part 1 of a 3 part series that I am writing to address issues in failed love candle spells. Here is the scenario; you met a guy and you two are really hitting it off. You want to ‘turn it up’, meaning you want to make the two of you get closer. You choose to find a candle spell or you visit the botanica, candle shop or a spiritual worker to do the work for you. It has been some time, not terribly long, but you are not seeing the results you want. Examine these reasons why the love candle spell may not be working and see if any of them sounds familiar. 1. Magic is not “Guaranteed” – Pure and simple. Magic, candles, incantations or even prayers, are the infusion of wishes, desires and hopes that you are releasing into the ethers of the Universe. I see clients all the time who have gone from one reader to a psychic to a spiritual worker, all for naught, because each one had done work for the person/client and it did not turn out the way it was intended or not at all. The Internet is chock full of websites promising, even assuring the reader that their spells ar “100% Guaranteed”.Truth. If it is not meant to Be, then the Almighty will not allow it to happen. The girl or guy might be the most handsome/beautiful/gorgeous body Heaven sent down, but if their is evil intent afoot in the Future and the Higher Power that resides in the clouds doesn’t want you to experience it, then no amount of candles will make It happen. You have to ask, pray, meditate or incant what you desire, but with the understanding of this: It Might Not Happen Despite How Many Candles You Burn. ‘ Nuff said! 2. You have unrealistic goals – This falls into the “George Clooney or (insert movie/rock star’s name here)” section. There is just some circles that you and your target will circulate in and your paths will NOT cross. Another scenario is the “I’ll wait forever for you, Eddie!” syndrome, despite Eddie being married with 4 kids and a mortgage that would make Donald Trump cringe. Really? You want to become ‘Instant Step-Mom?’. Brave girl. The same goes for men as well; be careful what you wish for….. 3. There are underlying issues, problems and situations to take into consideration (further enhancing the above) – OK, so Eddie is really and truly is “the One”. He’s got 4 kids, a mortgage, and a wife that is taking him to the cleaners. Take a moment and think 5 years down the road – are you planning to be the major ‘breadwinner’ in your relationship with Eddie because three quarters of his check goes to HER? This is an example of what could happen once you are fully entrenched into a relationship. If she/he is cheating now, using now, lying now, then it is bound to happen later as well. Do not try to “fix” another person (which is a great majority of concerns lately). They are what or who they are; love them with all their faults or move on. Look for Part 2 in a few days regarding...

Free Candle Spells | You Can’t be Weak when it comes to Candle Spells

Free Candle Spells | You Can’t be Weak when it comes to Candle Spells I got off the phone the other day with someone who was asking why her candles were not “working”. I realized I was right to have the initial presumption that she meant that she was not getting the results she wanted. When I asked her a few questions on the nature of her candles, she told me it was for her boyfriend of three years to basically, “put up or shut up” – meaning she wanted him to make a full commitment to her. It seems that he would run hot and cold with their relationship; that when he felt he needed to be ‘free’, she was to go along with it and allow him to flit and flutter into and back out of her life like a butterfly in the backyard. Now mind you, SHE couldn’t so the same thing; no, she was to ‘wait’ for him to come to his senses and return. She then told me she was doing a candle spell she had found on the Internet about making someone make up their mind. This was the first red flag I saw in the matters of candle burning and I told her so. This candle spell is contradictory in its creation and nature; you just can’t expect someone to stop being wishy-washy and burn a candle to make them choose one way or the other because the person is acting EXACTLY as is being petitioned for – making one choice or the other. I told her that she needed to trash that spell and do one that basically says, “Get over here and be my man, dammit!” – in a nutshell. Only there was a deeper problem when I told her that this type of clear, direct and demanding candle spell was needed. She was not sure if she wanted him. Whaaat? Why are you burning candles for them then, I asked. Her answer was that if he didn’t want to be with her, then she wanted him to be gone and stay gone but if he really wanted her, he needed to stay and stay stayed (a play with words). So, we were working on the recipient of the blessing from the candles not being completely and 100% sure if this was what they wanted, coupled with a person that wasn’t sure they wanted to stay or go. I had to tell her that no candle spell will be successful unless you are completely and totally SURE that the results or outcomes from the candle burning is truly what she wanted. Kind of like pointing a gun at a person that you would rather be six feet under, pulling the trigger, and then saying, “I really didn’t MEAN IT!!!” So I suggested a very non-hoodoo-y, magical thing to do: Go make two lists of the good and bad qualities about this person. The list with the more items wins. It would have been easier for me to play into her candle spell, load her up with a lot more spells to create more confusion and also sell her a bunch more oils. Jacqueline don’t play that way. I have a higher power that I have to justify my moves with. I had another recent encounter with the same situation, and I wrote about it on my other blog on Tarot by Jacqueline. I called it “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” – after the Rolling Stones song. Click on the blue title to go to the blog post. To summarize my story today, I want to emphasize that you must be certain and focused on your intention you have in regards to candle...

Free Candle Spells | Expectations in Candle Burning – A Commentary

Free Candle Spells | Expectations in Candle Burning – A Commentary I recently had a client who was having love and financial problems in the form of a mortgage situation. She first contacted me in early April with a few questions. We briefly communicated back and forth, and then she committed to having some candles burned as a result of my suggestions. I lit the candles and for a day it seemed that al was going good. Then the signs came up during the candle burn. First, one of the two pink candles used in the love spell didn’t burn right. While one was burning correctly, the other had only burned a 3/4 inch opening in the wax – just enough to allow the candle flame to pass. This candle went on for about another day, then went out on its own. The other candle burned brightly until the end. Here’s a photo Both of these candles were purchased at the same place and lit at the same time. They were side by side in the same environment on my Altar.  In all of my candle burning days, this has only happened twice and both in love spells. can it be technical, like a bad candle pour from the manufacturer? Sure – but these are the same candles  used all the time, bought form the same place. Given a little information about the couple, I told the client that one has much stronger feelings for the other and the love is not reciprocated as strongly by the other. Then, about a day and a half later, her other candles started their antics. The court case candle I was burning for her cracked and the wax was oozing out all over the side of the candle, until the flame went out. Her second court case candle went as as well mid way on the burn. I told her that this is not a good sign and that this party in the situation will not be one that she can overcome. I get an e-mail a week later with this comment: your candles didn’t help I then responded by giving some deeper explanation of Faith in God to make these choices for you, but the return e-mails became more of a accusatory tone as if I was at fault for the candles not “helping”. Candle burning is not the be-all-and-end-all to a difficult situation. It is a plea, a prayer for help from God, the Angels and the Saints. It is a method of connecting with the Spiritual by turning over the decision of the outcome to the Higher Power. It is applying an offering and prayer in a better outcome for you, but ultimately leaving the decision to the Just Judge – God. Something to consider is that one set of candles is not touted to be the only thing that you have to do. It may take more than one set of candles to get the job done. I have people who light candles constantly so that their situation is always right before God’s eyes. It is a reminder to the recipient that there is something that needs constant attention until the condition improves. I burn green candles for prosperity constantly – for myself. I am a mother of children and I will constantly provide for them. I do not light candles for myself strictly when times are tough but in times of good as well. Setting lights for myself is my way of thanking the Higher Power for the good times and the bad.
