An excerpt from The Magical Power of the Saints|
by Ray T. Malbrough
When you first light the candle, if it emits black smoke it is a sign that
it is beginning to remove negative energy from your desire. When the smoke
is white, then your prayer will be answered, but there may be some struggles
to obtain your desire.
A strong flame is a good indication. The candle is working by sending out a
lot of power and energy to bring about a manifestation of your prayer. This
is a sign that the candle is working rapidly.
A weak or low flame indicates that the candle is working very slowly to
remove an obstacle or to bring in a positive vibration to your prayer. You
are facing some heavy oposition to having the request granted. It is an
indication that you will have to pray a little longer time before your
desire is granted.
A jumping flame can indicate spiritual warfare on your behalf. A lot of raw
energy and power is working. If the candle is a war candle, then the person
whose name is attached to the candle is fighting.
If the smoke wafts toward you, then your prayer is acknowledged.
If the smoke blows in the direction away from you, it is a definite sign
that you still need erseverance in order to obtain your desire.
If the smoke turns toward your right, then you will need to use a bit of
patience, success will come through using your head. Again if the smoke
turns toward you, success will come quickly in granting the prayer.
If the smoke blows toward your left, then you are becoming too emotionally
involved with the situation you are praying for and in danger of subconsciously
sabotaging your own prayer so that it will not be answered.
At times you will hear crackling sounds as the candles are burning. This is
taken to indicate that the spirit is pleading your case on your behalf. The
stronger the crackling sound, the stronger the opposition is against you.
If the glass breaks, it can indicate, depending on the situation, that
someone is working against you because the pressure is on. On the other
hand, if the work you are doing is an uncrossing or jinx removing and the
glass breaks, then the evil that is against you is broken.

Reading the Glass
If the glass containing the candle remains clear as it burns, your prayer
will be granted in spite of any opposition.
If the glass begins to turn black at the top but is clearing up on the
bottom, it is a sign that you have someone working against you. The darker
it turns, the stronger the opposition. This does not mean your prayer will
not be answered. Don't jinx yourself with negative thinking here; your
prayer can still be answered with perseverance.
If the glass burns black all the way down to the bottom, you have some
serious obstacles blocking your prayer from coming into reality. You need to
do some uncrossing lights on yourself, and take some spiritual baths to
remove negativity and the jinxed condition. You are a victim of black
magick. If you are unlucky, consult a diviner priest or priestess; if you
belong to the Santeria religion, consult either a Babalawo or the Santero
who is your godfather in the religion. You may need a stronger counter-work
than just using candles and spiritual baths to remove this type of strong
