This work uses magic spell reversal candles. Anyone can participate in this spell by buying a candle and lighting it. The magic candle consists of a red core that is completely covered in black wax – a symbol of “the coating, posture, or veil” of obstacles, challenges, negative energy or actions. The red candle represents the person or thing trapped in black wax. This candle immediately begins to release the core as the outer layer melts and is covered by the red, dripping wax. It frees a person of “servitude” to the problem, person or thing.
