Among other things, lighting a candle creates a special atmosphere in a room. But candles are of special significance in many cultures and much more than just a source of light. Candlelight also stands for the eternal light of God and the immortality of the soul. Furthermore, they are often lit in memory of the deceased. In the esoteric realm, they serve to create a special atmosphere on the one hand, and on the other hand they are part of numerous rituals such as purifications. Wax light also has a relaxing and calming effect. Scented candles can further enhance these calming effects.
For centuries, candles have also been a component of numerous magical and esoteric rituals, which are sometimes still used today in the field of esotericism.
Their colour plays an essential role in this. For the application of certain rituals, solid-coloured candles are recommended. The colour depends on the goals. White stands for purity, harmony and immortality, among other things. Red stands for love, sexuality and energy. Black is said to have strong energy and is used in protection rituals, among other things. The shape is also said to have an effect on the respective ritual. For many rituals, solid-coloured stick candles are used.
As you can see, the choice is not easy. In some cases you should just listen to your intuition. If you are not sure which colour is the right one, then use white stick candles.
One of the most famous rituals is probably the burning of a written wish in the flame of a candle. As with any ritual, focusing on the essentials is another component that contributes to the success of the ritual.
Never leave a candle unattended and ensure that the candle stands firmly and safely. Do not place them near flammable materials such as curtains. They should also not be left unattended in the hands of children.
Even though there are many different rituals with the most diverse candles, all rituals have one thing in common. Candles should be cleaned before each ritual. Use anointing oil or essential oils. Never blow them out during a ritual or at the end. Use a candle snuffer or a fireproof container. Candles never burn completely, the remains should be disposed of carefully. You can bury them in running water or pack them in a hollow tree. If the flame goes out during the ritual, the effect of the ritual will also be extinguished.
