I have not posted for a while because of my health and the health of others in my family, I will get back to posting as soon as I am able.
I've also been considering in what direction my future posts should go, so I need to look over what I have covered and go from there.
I have been uncovering new information among my granny's notes and well as notes by the members of her group, so it is putting it all together as a cohesive narrative that's important.
But I will be posting before too long. I have come across a few more listings of Jar Candles that I will add to the list that was posted before and how the candles work. Be on the watch when I flag that the list is updated.
Now I do have to make a statement and it's policy really----
I Will NOT post a comment that appears to be a form of advertisement for a practioners business.
Even if it appears to be positive praise for that practioner.
I do not have any means to confirm any person's works or products unless I myself have personally used them or have worked with them.
Only then can I be sure that they ARE the real thing.
So if anyone attempts to post something in which I have not personally used or have worked with, etc., etc. I will delete that comment.
I do this in order to protect anyone who is reading my blog.
This is because just as there are many honest practioners out there, there are 10 times as many fakes.
And in this current economic situation I do not want anyone to be cheated out of their hard earned income.
If I do use a product or work with a practioner that I feel is honest, their products are true, then I will post a link on my side bar for you to look at and decide to contact.
But nothing unsolicited. That is my policy, that is my pledge to any and all of my blog readers.

I have been able to list all the Jar candles that I know of and their uses here.
Now why are they called Jar Candles, well these are glass enclosed candles, that come either in one color or will have on the glass enclosure an image either silk screened or a paper image glued to the glass.
Each are dedicated to a specific function, but remember just as with the plain or figure candles they are inactive until you have dressed and activated them.
Many of these are quiet common, but not all spiritual supply shops carry all of them. One company called Wisdom products has been know to carry most of them and can be mail ordered to you. But it's always best to order no less than 6 of them to make the shipping and handling worth while.
On an average these candles will burn continuously for 5 to 7 days. But in some instances they may burn more quickly, in some cases not at all.
This depends upon what magical workings may be working against your wish or desire, if that be the case then divination as to what to do next would be required.
In future posts I will list the meanings of candle actions, what they do and what should you do if unusual things should happen.
As a word of warning, all candles including Jar Candles should be burned in a safe place where animals and children cannot touch or knock them over. And far away from any flammable curtains or other things. Some people will have these candles supported in a bowl of sand to avoid them falling over. Because candles get hot keep them on a heat resistant surface, do not have any cloth near them, and if you have an altar always have a fire extinguisher close by. Trust me it's worth it's weight in gold.
I know you've been worried but I have been ill which required surgery and a long recuperation time, which made it difficult to sit up for any long periods of time.
I will resume my postings when I can.
In going over my notes and old books, I've discovered more information on various types of dirt gathered not just from graveyards but also from locations.
On jar candles I am bit by bit putting the information together as my health permits.
But now we have just passed the Autumn Equinox, and you will find that the veils between the physical world and the spiritual are getting thinner.
Of late Hollywood has been putting out movies dealing with possessed objects and people.
Many of these stories are really for entertainment.
But a number of them do have a basis for fact but have been blown out of proportion for the thrill effect.
If a movie says it's based on a true story, remember it is only based on the story but is not the factual story itself.
Case in point is the Amityville house, the Exorcist, White Noise, The Conjuring and a new movie that's come out called Annabelle.
Hollywood is great for extreme exaggeration, so as with all things take it with a grain of salt and get the true facts.
However as I said, we have passed the Autumn Equinox and the veils are getting thinner, so in my previous posts look up ways to protect yourself and your home, DO NOT PLAY WITH QUIJA BOARDS, it is an open invite to that which you may not know.
If you go ghost hunting, take precautions to spiritually and physically protect yourself. It is not a game.
So please refer to my previous post on Spiritual protection and do take steps.
Halloween is fun, and you should have fun, but also be careful.

And also to all you others who read my blog.
This is a notice to let you know that I updated the section of "What are the different candles Styles Part 2"
I had come across some notes that included other candle styles both figure and jar or glass enclosed candles and put the updated information on that particular post.
Some of them such as devotional or glass flame are not necessarily figure candles but I felt that to include their information in part 2 is important.
If you have printed this information out, try to copy and paste this new information into your Book of Shadows.
I am holding off posting Jar or Glass enclosed candles for a while until I'm sure that I have as much information as possible going through my notes in interviews with my Granny's group as well as what I had written down from what she told me. Also in my researching I've found some new information as well.
That is the problem as well as the charm of magickal practices, it constantly changes and flows, which makes it a very living thing.

Memorial Candles --- These are usually the very largest of the votive candles they can be without a glass jar and just in a candle hold but it is safer to use the ones that come in a glass jar. Ordinarily they are lit at midnight or sunrise to honor a birthday or anniversary or to remember a deceased loved one.
White is usually preferred. I will refer to this type of candle in my next post on Jar candles.
Moon-shape candles---Usually crescent shape to be used for Lunar magick.
Can replace Goddess figure in Goddess rituals. Use shape that
corresponds to the aspect of the goddess IE: right hand crescent for maiden,
Full for mother/lover, left hand crescent for waning or crone/wise woman.
Anoint with Mummy Oil and place on an altar along with a burner filled with Power Incense. Light the incense first and allow it to burn for ten to fifteen minutes, while you concentrate on the project at hand. Then light the candle and repeat this chant several times: As the fragrance rises ever loftier, as the light glows ever lovelier, banish the forces which hinder my way, light the path to victory this day.
For your immediate information I will give you the basic information here to start---
Seven-Day Novena: This long-burning candle is housed within a thick, heat resistant glass, and comes in three varieties: Plain Novena, the Spiritual Novena, and the Specialty Novena. Each comes unscented and in a variety of colored wax and glass casings. The different one’s dedicated to Saints will be discussed in the next post on Jar Candles.
Praying Hands Candle--- Burn praying hands candle to heal a person who is sick. As they say Faith can works miracles! (But I also recommend seeing a Doctor or going to the hospital) Dress candle with Healing Oil. Write your petition and place in a dish of Holy Water. Read Psalm 30 and concentrate on your request. This can also work the same as the Guardian Angel Candle if you cannot find a Guardian Angel candle, it’s usually in white
Special Note:Some Novena Candles are also considered Protection Candles.
Pyramid Candles— usually used to either win court cases or money petition especially if designed with an eye on it. Sometimes scented, sometimes not scented Aligns with higher planes energies. Excellent for banishing and drawing. Write your complete wish on the bottom.
On each side of the pyramid write the word or phrase that describes how your wish would affect the four levels of your awareness. When dressing this candle bring the oil downward from the tip to the base and picture the energy entering the candle and grounding into your life.
If using it to rid your life of something dress the candle from base to tip.
Using ritual dove`s blood ink, write a petition for the favor you want on parchment paper or brown paper and place it under this candle. As the candle burns it will draw your desired result to you or banish it from you. Again depending upon your intent.
Rebirthing Candle: A candle, with three or more days of burning time that is used to guide the dead across to peace and rest. Usually a very thick white pillar candle which for safety sake should be placed in a large glass holder such as the types referred to as Hurricane glass holders. This should be started from the moment of death or notified of death to one day after burial if possible. If following a natural burial (without embalming) or are planning Cremation then burn for three days and nights praying for the soul of the departed to find their way to the light, heaven, the summer land or what your religious beliefs refer to the afterlife so that they can be born into their new, spiritual life.
Red- Cause problems in enemies love life Red Skull Candles are used in spells to cause love to die either between the petitioner and the one who loves them or between two people other than the petitioner or to make him or her fall out of love with another person. It can be used to force someone physically to move away. Of course, the reverse could also be attempted depending on the Moon Cycle. Be careful in this use.
Red skull candles are Suitable for Thanatos-Sex Magick (sevitors, succubi), Adamu-Styled workings, Lilith-Fire workings, etc use with caution.
Yellow---very hard to find --used to bend someone to your will, when you can not find one in yellow substitute a while skull candle instead.
See also Ompalos candle ---- Snake some times called Bust Away Candle: This candle is used to break free or "bust away" from evil. It is used to break free of undesirable conditions, situations or habits.
Snake candles are burned for protection from all evil. The purpose of the snake candle is to acknowledge that there are light and dark forces in all things, and the evil influences must be negated before the good can blossom and take over. Anoint the Snake candle with Protection Oil and use it once a month to keep the home free from all harm.
Use for Love, Spiritual Blessing and Peaceful Home or returning lovers, and for protection and legal work.
The first is to burn it all at once--once lit let it burn because to some practioners why burn it in section as that seems to defeat the potency of the spell work at that rate you might as well burn 3 separate candles for each purpose.
- 1 Triple Action Candle
Take the coffin nail or pin and carve a short phrase or symbol into each colored section of the candle.
your petition on parchment paper with Dragon´s Blood Ink and place under
candle. It’s various uses run from love,
protection, moon magic to sinister things---intent is the focus.
Vigil Candle: Any candle will suffice when burnt not only for a long period of time for another's benefit but also to peacefully demonstrate for a cause or action.
Wizard: Spirit guide and spirit guardian spells. Again an unusual candle to find, (see Owl if find unburned at yard sale) Usually you will find it as if it were complete designed as a wizard figure, but if you find it in one color see what color it is to determine the type of word.
Zodiac or Astrological Candle: This candle is used to represent each of the twelve signs of the Zodiac. It is specifically colored, scented, and adorned with the information pertinent to the individual sign. Its use, normally in conjunction with other candles, is to represent your goal or target. The Zodiac Candle would be placed on the altar and then moved closer to the target candle to simulate the merging of the two.
With any candle be it pillar, figure, jar or what ever, intent and will is what will generate the energy, the imagery, the colors help focus that intent and will.
I could have gotten angry and blown up at him but he had worked it so that everyone else was charmed by him, so I just smiled and worked my best with him taking care never to reveal my true feelings about him to anyone, the worst that I would say is "Oh sometimes we see things differently"
Next I will list the Jar Candles.
