The simplest form of conjure that I do… Light Setting means that I burn one or more ritual candles on your behalf, for whatever purpose you may need. This is done all the time in spiritualist churches.
There are three sizes of this service:
A small light is burned for you, 4″ or 6″ candle or a configuration of tea lights, depending on the situation. I use a picture of you (or the person you are praying for). A petition paper (or have you send one in) will be made for your intention. The candle(s) with special herbs and oils. I pray on your behalf, to an appropriate Deity or Spirit, one who is known for granting the types of requests that match your need.
A large, glass-encased 7 day candle or a specific figural candle. Figural candles come in particular shapes, like that of a man, woman, cat, pyramid, skull, male or female genitalia, a cross, 7 knob candle, etc. Your spell petition is made once. Again, I use a photo and handwrite a petition paper, dress the candle and/or the petition paper with appropriate oils and/or herbs or powders. An appropriate Spirit is called upon for help.
Below is an example of the large Light Setting. You see here a vigil candle that I set for a patron, enlisting the help of La Santisima Muerte. The charcoal in front was to burn the incense used in the daily offerings.
I’ll choose an appropriate type of 7 day,glass-encased, novena candle for the working. I might pick a type of figural candle, instead. We’ll include a food and drink offering to the Spirits. Other factors are the same, the petition paper, photo, herbs, oils, powders, etc. I use careful, astrological timing and your spell petition will be prayed each day, until the light burns out. The food and drink offerings are added in to make it more powerful. Part of the service is in knowing the proper colors, incenses, the foods that the individual Spirits like, what the prayers are that get said to them, etc.
Below is an example of a Deluxe Light Setting made to Ganesha, on behalf of a patron. In some cases, large candles are used and in others, like this one, smaller candles are used but burned daily for a specific period, along with food, water, incense, etc.
This was another (pictured is the food portion only) for a different patron.
Light setting is an excellent way to tap the power of Elemental Fire and direct it toward your intention. Having someone else set an additional light for you and say prayers is especially beneficial. This is because two like minds become greater than the sum of their parts and amplify the effect. The prayers are stronger if you’re saying them yourself and having me help on my end, too.
