Pagan/Wiccan Religion/Candle burned dark

Question
Hello,
I recently am making a transition from 9-5 job to self employed.
This is of my own choosing. I have spent this year focusing on listening to my heart and making decisions based on faith.  I do feel this is the right decision because if I ever have a doubt, I ask the Universe for a sign and I get one clear as day.

Long story short, I got an uncrossing candle to clear any negative energies when it comes to this next stage of my life and the glass burned black almost 80% to the bottom. First the glass was clear as the candle reached 50%.  Then for some reason the last 2 days the top half of the glass turned black, then on the last day when the candle burned out the glass was almost fully black.  What does this mean?

Thanks for your assistance.
-Jake

Answer
Jake,

Well met.  The blackened candle should be treated as a good omen.  It is said that the candle that burns black burns well.  My metaphysical research shows no ill effects from this.  You should not fear this as anything negative.  You will be well.  That is the only advice I can give.  Be blessed.

Expertise

I would be happy to answer general and specific questions concerning Wicca (including traditional forms of witchcraft); Paganism; Western Ceremonial Magick; Thelema; etc. as I have direct participant experience with all of them. I am a student and practitioner of medieval metaphysics and a Certified Chikara Reiki Master using Usui and Tibetan attunements. I am a traveling Pagan Clergyman and offer marriage, hand-fasting, blessing, and saining services. I offer advice on spell creation and casting as well as protection. Specialized topics of knowledge: *Wicca. *Western Ceremonial Magick. *Thelema. *Spiritualism. *Spellcraft. *Protection. *Rites. *Actual practice and ritual. *More!

Experience

For over thirty years have I been a practicing Wiccan and practitioner of Western Ceremonial Magick. I am always looking to network and communicate with other like minded individuals who are looking to explore the spiritual and metaphysical boundaries outside of the confines of the commonly accepted mundane parameters. I also have an education in comparative religions and serve as a traveling Pagan Clergy Minister. I practice Wicca and Western Ceremonial Magick and observe the rites of both. I participate in Coven activities. By practice I observe the Sabbats, Esbats, and Full & New Moon Rituals. I am a certified Usui Reiki Master, Tibetan Reiki Master, and Chikara-Reiki-Do Master.

Organizations
I will gladly provide distance healing at no cost. Just send an e-mail describing the patient's name, age, physical location and ailment and I will direct the healing nature of Reiki energy to him or her. Please note that I am licensed to perform marriages and am registered to officiate marriages in New York City, NY. Most States define marriage as a legal and ceremonial union between a male and female couple. I also perform handfastings, ceremonial unions, and marriage ceremonies. I also offer reaffirming vows ceremonies between previously married couples/partners as well. My ceremonies are very professional and tasteful. You will not be disappointed. I offer informal counseling for pre and post-marriage couples. I also perform ritual work and am available to augment or "stand in" for others by proxy during absences involving more complex multiple member ritual work. This is useful when members are ill, or are unable to attend during long absences.

Education/Credentials
Long have I traveled down the path of spiritual growth. I have been initiated into and am learned in several esoteric orders. My educational studies have been very eclectic. I am a professional with multiple degrees from mundane institutions, and multiple degrees from less "traditional" institutions as well as years of "self-taught" learnings from practitioners of various "crafts." I am a certified Usui Reiki Master, Tibetan Reiki Master, and Chikara-Reiki-Do Master. I was Ordained (by certification & ordination letter) through the Universal Life Church (ULC) and Monastery in 2001 and have earned Ministerial Counseling Certification through the SOUL Clinic Program. I have been awarded the coveted Doctor of Metaphysics (DM) degree from the ULC and fully apply my education to real life practice. I have been licensed by the City of New York to marry couples. I have studied and practiced esoterica with numerous organizations and have experience with the OTO, Golden Dawn, etc. I also have an education in comparative religions and serve as a traveling Pagan Clergy Minister. I practice Wicca and Western Ceremonial Magick and observe the rites of both. By practice I observe the Sabbats, Esbats, and Full & New Moon Rituals. I do teach students and am a certified Instructor of Metaphysics. Please note that I am licensed to perform legal marriages. The majority of states have defined a legal marriage as a legal and ceremonial union between a male and female couple. Paganism and Modern Wicca/Witchcraft as belief systems are more relevant today than ever. I feel that as human beings the need for belief in a higher power(s) is/are instinctive and necessary for survival.

Awards and Honors
I am a Counselor licensed with the Universal Life Church of Modesto, CA. I hold a ULC license as a religious counselor and provide counseling and therapy under the guidelines of the S.O.U.L.

Through counseling I can help you get past Gurdjieff & Ouspensky's admonition/observation (below): "History repeats itself because man remains at the same level of being; namely, he attracts again and again the same circumstances, feels the same things, says the same things, hopes the same things, believes the same things. And yet nothing actually changes."
