The manner you dress would affect the way you feel and your success in most human activities. Some people do candle burning in their everyday clothes and enjoy a reasonable degree of success. They would have greater success if they were more concerned with what they wore. The reason is simple: when you put on distinctive ritual robes or Wiccan clothing, used exclusively for Magic rites, your mind is much more open to the Magic itself.
Some Pagans keep special garb for rituals only, so whenever they put it on, they are preparing to be in sacred space. Others have special ritual jewelry.
The robes you wear does not have to be of any particular type or style. When practicing candle magic, the long and flowing sleeves can become a fire hazard. So, please, be safety-minded. You should decide to assign a traditional long robe, or a simple pair of pants, or skirt and top. It must be something that you have made yourself, or purchased and is used exclusively for the magic spells.
When you start to prepare your outfit for candle magic, decide on one color (white is the best), and put all your energy into making it. Pick the material, color, and style that makes you feel the most comfortable. The more effort and energy you apply to every stitch and every inch of that dress, the more magical garment you will have. You can decorate it, sew, appliqué, or paint onto it. Be confident that the power will start pulsating through your body when you put on this robe. It is going to be a part of you and will add to your Magic strength.
Many Wiccans strip naked while performing Magic rituals. To go through the process of removing all clothes can be as emotionally energizing as putting on distinctive ritual robes.
You don’t have to wear a pentacle the size of a dinner plate just because you’ve decided Wicca – or some other form of Paganism – is the right path for you…
The really important thing to remember, though, is that your spirituality is not defined by what you look like on the outside. Coloring your hair black and wearing fairy wings doesn’t make you Pagan, any more than wearing sensible shoes would make one a Christian. Your belief system and practice is something that comes from the inside. Don’t worry about feeling out of place if you’re wearing your business casual attire at a Pagan event – chances are there’s at least five other people looking at you with envy, wishing they had dared to show up in something from the LL Bean catalog.
