Coming home at the end of a long day, lighting some candles, putting on some music and enjoying the comfort of your own space is an underestimated yet important part of balance in life, and the health benefits of something as simple as this is just as priceless.
Candles have been used since time immemorial for a variety of reasons from the practical, religious and ceremonial, to the decorative and romantic.
In your prayers, spiritual healing and meditations—particularly in working with your aura and the Divine Light—candles play a powerful, supportive role. Candles have their own particular force field that is unequaled in conducting and redirecting spiritual energy that has gone astray.
There is a spiritual meaning of candle burning. On a practical level, candles help to set up a lovely, quiescent atmosphere most conducive for prayer, meditation, healing, and other activities of contemplation or communion with the Divine. No doubt, you have already experienced the power of candles to elevate a mundane moment to the hushed sublime of the sacred.
What is the spiritual meaning of candle colors?
Candles represent different spiritual energies depending on the colored candle you use. Lighting candles during meditation is a wonderful way to support the meditative process. For example, in the auric field, the spiritual energy of love comes through in a beautiful deep rose-pink light. Lighting a pink candle and meditating with the deep rose-pink light can call in that spiritual power of love in your aura. Or if you are looking to build more prosperity in your life, lighting a turquoise candle and meditating with the turquoise ray of abundance can help increase the spiritual power of prosperity in your aura.
It’s a good idea to have a collection of various colored candles as part of your meditation practice. Some of the candle colors and their meanings include:
GOLD – Strength, confidence, faith, and wisdom. (If gold-folded candles cannot be found, yellow can be used.)
PINK – Love, forgiveness, and compassion
POWDER BLUE – Creative inspiration
BRIGHT ORANGE – Motivation and enthusiasm
SAPPHIRE BLUE – Healing
PURPLE – Peace, serenity
YELLOW – Concentration, focus, wonderful to light when studying and learning new things.
EMERALD GREEN – Balance and harmony. Wonderful to us when there is friction and discord.
ORANGE and BLUE – In this combination, orange can be used for purification and the sapphire blue to regenerate and bring in new life force
A white candle can always be used if you cannot find the colored candle you need.
In addition to lighting candles during meditation, you can work with candles on their own. For example, if you feel enveloped by a strong fear or feel anxious, burning candles can help reflect on what is causing your anxiety.
Lighting these candles with spiritual intentions alerts the divine that you are asking for help. It will create an atmosphere of energetic support. When one is worried, that energy is not only expressed in the auric field, it can permeate the surrounding environment which can inadvertently be picked up again, even after a meditation. Finally, burning candles can help you sustain the benefits of your meditation and keeps you from unintentionally reigniting internal patterns of worry all over again.
If your work schedule does not allow you to light a candle for extended periods of time, do the candle exercise at a time when you are not so busy. Vacations, weekends, mornings or evenings are good times to work with candles.
Utilise the affirmations that come with our specialty collections of candles as you light them and create your sanctuary.
It is great fun using candles and discovering their power in helping to transform situations in your life. You will find that adding candle work is a wonderful support system in your spiritual practice.
May light and love be with you always!
