Fire: Flame and Focus
Elemental Magic

Candles are great for strengthening concentration and psychic power. All you need is a quiet space and a lit candle.

For the first exercise, sit before the flame and gaze into it for a few moments. (Take care of your eyes by training your gaze toward the bottom of the flame, and be sure to blink whenever you need to.) When you’re ready, close your eyes, and watch for the image of the flame against your closed eyelids. Hold onto this image for as long as you can before your concentration breaks. When the flame disappears, open your eyes and start again. Over time, you will be able to prolong the flame’s appearance in your mind’s eye.

Next, practice “shaping” the flame with your own thoughts. As you watch the flame, visualize it growing, shrinking, getting brighter and dimmer. Keep your focus trained on the flame and the change you’re visualizing at the same time. You may not see an effect at first, as this takes practice, but after a time you will notice the flame respond to your projections. To strengthen the psychic energy further, be sure you’ve spoken to your candle and have done some meditative breathing first!
