Black candles and white candles for spellwork

Knowing how to break a candle spell can be useful if you believe candle magic is being used against you. By understanding how to work your own spells effectively, you can mitigate the effects of cruelly intentioned magic.

How to Break a Candle Spell

There are two principle ways to break a hex or curse that has been cast upon you. The first is simply to remove the magic and stop its effects on you, and the second is to reverse the spell and turn its effects back on the individual who initially cast it.

Warning About Casting a Reversal Spells

If you want to be peaceable in the magic you practice, it is best to just break the spell rather than inflict its effects on the person who cast it against you. Reversal spells can go awry depending on how the initial spell was cast, and they can be trickier to perform. This is especially true if you aren't sure if a curse or hex has been cast upon you.

Different Types of Spell and How to Break Them

There are several ways to break spells. A black candle is used to reverse spells since the negative energy is absorbed by the candle and neutralizes it. In some instances, you can use a white candle or both a black and white candle.

White Candle Spell to Break a Spell You Cast

If you cast a spell that you no longer wish for it to remain or your desires have changed, you can use a white candle to break its power. This spell calls upon the power of crystals or charms for an extra boost.

  1. Anoint a white candle with rosemary or other purification herbs such as sage, lavender, holly, wintergreen, or chamomile.
  2. Burn the candle after midnight while chanting a verse to urge removal of your spell, concentrating on the spell ending.
  3. Give up a possession of yours, such as a charm or crystal, to show that your intentions are good and that you are working the spell only for yourself. The item given up should be placed on your altar and then buried after the spell is completed.
  4. If necessary, perform the spell for several consecutive nights to concentrate its power.

Tips on How to Break a Candle Spell

When you attempt to break a spell, it's important to remember that candle magic is a state of mind. Your thoughts can affect how any other spell influences you.

  • If your positive energy is stronger than an enemy's negative energy, their spell will be ineffective against you.
  • If casting a hex removal or reversal spells helps you to focus that energy, you can use the spell(s) as a powerful tool for your own peace and tranquility.
  • Always bury the candle and any remnants of your spell to ensure the negative energy is banished back to the Earth.
  • Place yourself in a protection circle or bubble of white light before beginning the spell.
  • Black candles are very effective when used to reverse the energy of other spells.

Importance of Breaking a Candle Spell

An energized candle spell is the best way to break a spell. The candle energy you use to cast your spell will be more powerful than the energy originally used to cast the spell against you when you focus on your intent and clear your mind of all negative thoughts.
