Intuition and manifestation go hand in hand. When we strengthen our psychic abilities, we make better decisions and we make fewer mistakes. We allow the Universe to send us signs and guide us along the way. We also have the clarity to set intentions for those things we want most in our lives. So who doesn’t want a little love? Not surprisingly many people are looking for love spells that work.
Before you go dismissing the idea of love spells or suggesting that they are evil, it’s important to understand exactly what magic and love spells do. Magic and spells in general are simply methods of focusing intention. When we focus our intention on something and believe that thing to be true with our entire hearts, we manifest it into our lives.
Candle magic is one of my favorite ways to focus my intention. When you use a candle for magic, you set an intention, and light a candle, allowing your intention to burn itself into the Universe and later into your reality. Of all of the types of magic I have tried, candle magic has given me some of my best results. I’ve literally set an intention and seen my goal come to fruition before the candle even burned all the way down. You can use candles to help you to achieve any goal; you can even use candle magic for love.
Love spells that work: How to choose the right candle
If you are looking for love spells that work and want to use candle magic, get a candle that represents love to you. People commonly use red and pink candles; red represents passion and intense love, while pink often represents more of a sweet and pure love. I typically use pink when I want to attract new love. You can also use white candles to represent any intention. I’ve used both a pink and a red candle together in rituals designed to attract more love into my life.

Once you have your candle, you want to dress it. Dressing a candle is a way to give the candle power, and to transmit your energy and intention into it. I suggest using essential oils that are related to what you are trying to do.
You can buy essential oils at a local metaphysical shop. If you don’t have one near you, you can buy some from the magical web site National Magic Shop. Ylang Ylang is an essential oil that promotes love and seduction. Or you can buy a specially-prepared oil, such as love oil.
How to dress a candle
In order to dress a candle, you simply rub oil onto the candle. Since you want to draw love into your life, you want to take an oil that symbolizes love and rub the oil from the top of the candle to the middle of the candle. Then do the same process, this time moving from the bottom of the candle to the middle where you left off before. (If you want to use candle magic to take something out of your life you do the opposite. You dress the candle by starting from the middle of the candle and rubbing upwards, and then going back to the middle of the candle and rubbing downwards.)
Once the candle is dressed, set an intention. In this case, you might set the intention to attract love in your life or to heighten the love that is already in your life. Some people write their intentions down though you can simply think about the intention and that may be effective.
Light the candle and then allow the candle to burn down. While you watch the candle burn, visualize the end result that you are trying to achieve. If you’re using candle magic for love, you might visualize yourself with your ideal partner in a committed relationship.
Once the candle has burned down, use a candle snuffer to blow it out. And in the process, you will allow your intention to drift up into the Universe from the smoke of the candle. Looking for love spells that work? With a strong intention you are already half-way there.
