I have an enquiry, my brother and I both went to see a lady close to where we live she would give us 3 candles white red and green the colours of St George, which I also believe they were annointed with holy water, and we woud go home and burn them in a non windy spot. Then she would read the wax on return, which was very interesting. Do you know what type of candle reading this is please?
