A flickering candle is warm, soft, and romantic. Yet candles are also powerful spiritual tools, having been a part of rituals, ceremonies, celebrations, and prayer across the ages.

Many scented candles are uplifting, transforming the ambiance of your home.  However, the light of candles is known to send energy into the universe, according to the blog Illuminate Your Spirit. They can cleanse a person or room of negative feelings, restore harmony in the home, and offer clarity to those seeking guidance.  

Candles Embody the Five Elements

They are also an important part of ritual, as a candle is the embodiment of all five elements, according to The Goddess Diaries community. The earth is seen in the base and wick of the candle, the sturdy element that steadies the flame. Wax, which changes from solid to liquid, then to gas when heated and melted, is transmutational, and akin to water.

The air is seen in the oxygen surrounding and candle, and is essential for keeping the candle lit as well as extinguishing the flame. The element of fire is seen in the candle flame. This element symbolizes passion, will power, transformation, and rebirth. Lastly, the element of spirit manifests in the soul when you send focus and intention towards a lit candle.

Those who understand these powers use candles to cleanse, visualize, and manifest dreams. To start, place your candles in a beautiful, tranquil setting. You can use crystals, stones, and flowers to decorate the area around the candle. Close your eyes and focus inwardly on your third eye chakra in a sort of meditation.

Then try to visualize the situation you would like to see manifested. Feel it as if it is happening. Now take a pen and paper and write down your wish, intention, or goal, then place it under the unlit candle. You can also say it aloud if you wish.

Now light the candle, sending your intention into this action. After the candle is lit, close with words of gratitude and affirmation. Then simply let the candle burn, feeling that it is flowing with your energy.

Using Colored Candles to Manifest

The color of the candle is also important, according to Illuminate Your Spirit. Keep many colored colors on hand so you can light the appropriate ones when needed.

For example, purple candles are lit to imbue psychic awareness, while green candles are used for abundance and money. A blue candle may assist with healing, while lavender is helpful for manifesting harmony and calm. A pink or red candle is best when wishing for love, an orange candle for energy, and a yellow candle may help with giving creative energy. White is for spirit, while black is for protection.

The number of candles lit and the color combinations are another factor, according to the organization Spiritual Arts. Lighting an orange and blue candle together offers purification and regeneration.

If you are feeling anxious, a combination of three candles may ease the emotions. First focus on the cause of the anxiety, then light a gold, bright orange, and powder blue candle. Light them for two hours, then relight them for ten minutes during the day or until you feel calmer. Lighting a powder blue candle just before sleep may help induce calm and inspiration.

Having an assortment of beautiful candles on hand offers an opportunity to uplift any moment to the sacred. When you light your candles with set intentions and trust, you are actively empowering your spirituality. You are focusing on your desires, while the candle is there to be your delivery system, sending your energy out into the universe. May the light be with you!

Blue and white candles induce calmness, spirituality, and inspiration.
