Candles are the strongest and oldest way to reach the heavens. It's Flame has always been a metaphor for the soul!
They work through merging your will and psychological goals with your spiritual framework (whatever it is!) Candles are powerful because they transform energy – you can see it in the process of burning.
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.
Their power, combined with your own thoughts and desires can have a profound influence in your life and assist you in balancing and maintaining a healthy mind, body and spirit. Candle therapy can be used in many ways — meditation, Reiki, energy healing, chakra balancing and self-improvement. It can also be used for cleansing, healing and strengthening the mind, body and spirit. In any way you choose to use them, the most important goal is to develop a higher awareness and consciousness.
