So then, this exercise is designed to raise belief in yourself, your Magick, and everything "Magickal" in your life.
Here are the following steps:
- . Find some time alone, where you have some peace and quiet. Find a place that you will be able to make dark (don't make the room dark yet, but find a room that you will be able to make dark when you get to that part)
- Now, find a candle that you feel represents you. It could be one of your favorite color, or it could be one that when you pick it up you feel something special - it just "feels" right. Most importantly, you need to look at this candle as if it is an extension of your heart and soul. Take as long as you need to find the "perfect" candle for you.
- Take the candle, and sit in a comfortable position on the floor. Put both of your hands around the candle, and hold it in your lap. Now, clear your mind and slow your breathing. Take long, deep, even breaths. Relax. When you are relaxed think about your past and your present. Think about who you are as a person - how you feel, how you think, what problems you have, and what you truly love in life. As you think of your true self, and who you really are as a person - "think" those thoughts into your candle. Visualize every thought you have "transferring" into the candle, if it helps, you can visualize a white puffy jet stream traveling away from your head, and into the candle in your hands. Focus on this for a few minutes (or longer), you'll know when you've put enough of yourself into the candle.
- Now, in the room, build an altar. This could be something as simple as a little stool or even a chair. You can get as "ornate" as you want to get, but anything will do.
- Next, place the candle in a candle holder and set it on your altar in the room. Light the candle.
- Now, I want you to turn off the lights, close the curtains, and create a dark room. This dark room represents the clarity of emptiness, and the candle represents all that you are.
- Sit on the ground in front of your altar and the burning candle and focus on the flame. (another thing that really helps is to put on some soft background music - something uplifting that touches you) visualize the Magick energy in this candle (the energy that you put into it...the energy that is the essence of you ) being released into the the emptiness and darkness all around you.
- Close your eyes and feel your Magick energy filling the room - starting from the floor, up the walls, to the ceiling. Feel the warmth starting to building the room. As you visualize this warmth, you will begin to actually feel it.
- In your thoughts bring an idea of complete belief in yourself and the Magick energy that fills the room - the Magick energy that you just sent out. Put aside any bad things that have happened to you in the past, if they pop into your mind, quietly acknowledge them and cast them aside. They don't matter right now. Grab hold of everything that is good in your life, everything that you have accomplished, and everything that is possible for you with the powers you were born with. Believe in everything your heart tells you. Think about all of the people in this world that accomplish amazing things with Magick - psychics, fortune tellers, Witches, shamanic healers,from ancient times they have all uncovered the secrets to tapping into the full power of Magick within them, the same Magick that lies within you. You are not different than they are, and if you believe in your Magick, and all of the wonderful miracles it can bring you - there is no stopping the beautiful things that you can accomplish in your life.
- Continue focusing on this belief in yourself and in your Magick for no less than 10 minutes (the longer, the better). Build the belief up until you forget you ever had a single doubt in the past. Admit to yourself that you are special, and are filled with Magick just as much as any other person on this earth.
- Now, open your eyes and look around you. Take 3 deep breaths, and then snuff out the candle. After you have done this exercise, everything you do, every spell you cast, and every bit of Magick energy you send out, will go out with more intensity, and effect things in your world more than it ever has before.
