The candle's flame has always been a metaphor for the soul! It possesses a tranquil and almost hypnotic atmosphere
to those who allow its power to take them to a very special place.
A candle acts as a "self-object". A self-object is an object that is a reflection of our self, a reflection upon which we can act. The candle reflects the spiritual and ethical changes we would like to bring about in ourselves. It burns as a reminder and symbol of our desires.
Sometimes we have to hand our dreams over to a force more powerful than we are.
There are many ways to utilize the power of Candle Therapy. On other pages, you will find complementary systems of aromatherapy, energy medicine and meditation and can and do overlap within the healing process to create a positive and powerful approach to finding the balanced system. These complementary systems with candle therapy are all configured and intertwined within the practice of its theory and application.
When working with candles, you can be as simplistic or as complicated as you would like to make it. We suggest that you always charge your candle before lighting it. Sit in a quiet place hold the candle in your hands at heart level and visualize the area in your life you want charged (changed). This will personalize your connections with the candle and allow the needed energy to come to you in a more direct way. Begin by using a positive affirmation (our candles come with one), then expand on it based on your specific situation. You get as much out of a candle (or anything) as you put into it. You must create your own reality through the use of your energy, emotions and visualizations. What you wish to create may come immediately or it may take some time. Experience shows that results are only realized at the appropriate time (the Universal time, not your own)! This allows us a great lesson.
