Question
She wants me to answer the question:
"Why will the third flame not light?"
This is not spam, I really am asking for your help.
Do you understand the question? Because I don't.
Thanks

Answer
Zachariah,

What you are referring to is a video game.  Here is the insight:  

***********

"The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is a rather expansive RPG experience. It has everything you would expect to see, including tricky little environmental puzzles that can lead to a rather painful death. This quick guide is to help you get by the flame puzzle in Kiera Metz‘s ‘Magic Lamp’ quest. One wrong move during this puzzle, and Geralt will have to deal with some deadly wraiths. Considering that the ‘Magic Lamp’ quest takes place right after the ‘Wandering in the Dark’ quest, Geralt’s weapons probably won’t be in the best of shape, so avoiding any unnecessary combat is highly desirable.

The flame puzzle is found in a small room with a sealed doorway. There are four statues (two to each side of the doorway) with braziers sitting before them. These need to be lit in the proper order so that both Geralt and Kiera can progress towards the end of this The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt side-quest. If one of these braziers is lit out of order then a wraith will appear for each one that was light. Mess up on the first one and you’ll fight one wraith, mess up on the third and you’ll fight three.

witcher 3:

Luckily, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt provides you with the solution to the puzzle in the form of a simple riddle:

   “The first to light his fire dared not march on the end. The Second, by the First, Played a woeful Lament.
   The Third kept close to his faithful beast. The Fourth marched not beside the First, yet like the Second, played a tune.
   And thus they stood o’er their queen, who slept beneath flickering stars.”

By following the words of the riddle, players should light the braziers in front of the statues in this order:

   Statue standing with open arms and no dog (to the immediate right of the doorway).
   Statue standing with instrument and no dog (to the immediate left of the doorway).
   Statue standing with open arms and dog (to the far right of the doorway).
   Statue standing with instrument and dog (to the far left of the doorway).

witcher 3:

Choosing the lamps in this order will keep players from having to combat those deadly wraiths so that they can better focus on the threat waiting on the other side of the door. No disappearing monstrosities for Geralt, at least not at this time."

****************

Remember this as a caution.  It is my Office to warn you that witchcraft, spells, and Magick does not work in the real world like it does in a video game.  Stay with what you know and stay away from subjects where you might get hurt.  The human mind is a fragile thing.  As the eminent Carroll Poke Runyon offers as an advisory:  People are “warned against casual experimentation with these methods.  Mind-altering substances should never be used in connection with this practice.  Only mature persons in good mental and physical health should undertake these activities.  This system (of any Magickal practice)should be approached with the same respect one would accord to ta full-contact martial art.”

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. Please see my profiles on "The Witches Voice (WVOX)" website: http://www.witchvox.com/vn/vn_detail/dt_pa.html?a=uspa&id=260371.

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. Clinic Course. In addition I provide counseling by phone and in person. I offer counseling on a variety of life issues, such as: * Individual and Couples Counseling, * Premarital/Marital, * Anger/Depression/Grief/Fear, * Addictions, * Sexual Problems, * Personality Disorders, * Inner Child Work, & * Metaphsyics/Occult societal assimilation. 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."
