Get a white candle -- either a plain one (offeratory,
pillar, or taper) or a figural one in the gender of the
person you want to bless. Carve the person's full name on
the candle, then dress it with Blessing Oil or Holy Oil.
For more power, you may place a name-paper of the person, or
a photo, or some personal item of theirs (such as a bit of
hair or a snippet of clothing) either under the candle or
next to it. One easy way to do this is to place the paper or
personal concerns under an overturned saucer and put the
candle on top of the saucer.
Burn a portion of the candle every day for seven days,
pinching it out between burnings. As you light it each day,
[Name], may you be blessed
May all good things come to you
May nothing whatesoever harm you
May your heart be light
May your travels be safe
May your health be good
May your mind be sound
May your friendships sustain you
May you be blessed in every way
* If you have a special request for this person (such as
that they find a lover, get a good job, come home safely
from a war, or whatever), just add it to the list.
Some people use a large pillar-type candle and keep it going
for longer than seven days. They may make a habit of burning
such a candle every day -- or once a week, on Sundays -- for
as long as their friend or relative needs help, even doing
so for months at a time. if the candle is large and it is to
be burned in this way, it should be re-dressed with Blessing
Oil or Holy Oil once a week: after the initial dressing, you
can drop a tiny bit of oil into the "well" or hole in such a
large candle just before lighting it each time.
