What is the spiritual meaning of candles?

Candles have spiritual and symbolic significance in many cultures and spiritual practices around the world. Here are some common meanings associated with candles:

  • Light and illumination: Candles often represent light in the darkness, and are associated with spiritual illumination, clarity, knowledge, and truth. They symbolize the search for wisdom and spiritual understanding.
  • Prayer and meditation: They are used in prayers and spiritual rituals to create a sacred atmosphere and promote concentration. They serve as a focal point and help to connect with the divine, refocus and find inner peace.
  • Purification and protection: Candles are often used in rituals to purify and protect energy. They are believed to ward off negative energies, purify space and spirit, and create an atmosphere of safety and spiritual well-being.
  • Intention and manifestation: Candles can be used to express intentions and desires. By lighting them and concentrating on a specific intention, they can serve as a support for the visualization and manifestation of one's spiritual, emotional, or material aspirations.
  • Honoring the deceased: In many traditions, they are lit to honor and remember the deceased. They symbolize the spiritual presence of loved ones, and are often used in memorial ceremonies or prayers for the souls of the departed.

Rituals you can carry out with candles

  • Lighting candles is a way of asking your guardian angel for a special favor. So, which Angel numbers do you see?

  • The candles used should be new and if possible made of wax. Before any use, they must be "loaded": fill a small cup with pure olive oil and with the right thumb, grease the body of the candle from top to bottom (for banishment rituals, proceed in the opposite direction, from the base to the wick).

  • Use a different match for each candle, or light each candle with the flame of the first one. At the end of the ritual, extinguish them in the opposite direction of lighting, without blowing, because all the forces, all the energy they contain would disappear: it is better to blow them out between your fingers or use a snuffer. Finally, never use a candle twice in a row: throw it away, or if the ritual requires it, let it burn out until the end.
