A CANDLE BLESSING
Place the candle before you on the table, or on your lap on the off chance that you’re sitting on a seat. Hold your hands over it with the tips of the two thumbs touching, and the tips of the two pointers touching. This should just make a pitilessly looking “valuable stone” shape between the two hands.
Envision a white stream of life emanating down through that opening in your grip, streaming into the fire. Imagine the fire is sprinkling it up, and do this until the light practically has all the earmarks of being throbbing and crackling with power.
Make the sign of a significant picture over the fire. When you’re prepared to light it, fundamentally survey that picture of the candle, holding blessings that will be released when you are ready to do so.
