Many spiritual people use candles in prayer and/or to obtain their desires. Knowing how to anoint a candle is important.
How to Anoint Candles For Prayer
1. The first step, if used to attract something into your life anoint the candle by rubbing the oil from top to middle and then from the bottom to the middle.
To be rid of something called banishing, start at the middle of the candle and rub the oil to the top, then start back at the middle and rub the oil down toward the bottom. The idea behind this is that you are the center of the candle and you are sending your energy upward into the spiritual plane and downward into the physical. As above so below. Creating in higher planes and bringing it into the material world.
2. The second method is to start at the top of the candle and draw a single line down the side, under the base and back up the other side.
When you reach the top of the candle, you make a quarter turn and trace another single line as before so the candle is tied to your reason for anointing it. Stop at the top to bring something into your life. Stop at the bottom to banish people and situations from your life.
3. When using a candle in a jar you would anoint it by putting the oil on your finger and rubbing the top part of the candle clockwise, or counter clockwise depending on your needs.
Rub three circles three times. Clockwise to bring something in. Counter clockwise to banish.
