For simplicity's sake, we are often used to blowing out candles on birthdays and at home before we go to bed. Yet, this practice isnโ€™t ideal when it comes to embracing the positive vibes.

Why should we never blow on a candle to extinguish the flame?

In rituals or prayers, candle colors each have a specific meaning. Indeed, when they are widely used, candles can soothe souls and chase away bad omens and sensations. Candle wax represents the anchoring in the earth, as for the flame, this represents the connection with the sky. Blowing out a candle to extinguish it would be like chasing away its benefits. The connection with the divinity would then be cut off very abruptly and the energies brusquely interrupted. 

Whether it is for the realization of a white or black magic ritual, for prayer or to accentuate the powers of spiritualism or clairvoyance, the candle plays a crucial role and is at the heart of esotericism and divination arts in the broad sense. However, it is important to understand that candles should not be considered as accessories only intended to create an atmosphere, but rather as witnesses of the act that you are going to perform. They can also be considered as links between the astral and the terrestrial, as open doors to the world you wish to engage, in the same way as incense. Thus, the candle must be handled in the logic of the ritual and with the greatest respect. There are processes to respect when lighting or extinguishing it, and especially processes to avoid.

๐Ÿ’ก FAQ; ๐Ÿ’ก

Instead, how must you blow a candle out?

Note that today, the majority of candles are kerosene and inexpensive. It is therefore preferable to let them burn themselves out entirely in a safe place. If you opt for a traditional candle, beeswax for example, and therefore more expensive, you can extinguish the flame with your wet fingers, a spoon or a snuffer.

How must you light a candle?

Attention, never use a lighter to light a candle. Indeed, opt for a match, because it is made of wood, associated and therefore a zodiac element, related to the earth. Finally, as with candles, you should never blow on a match. The best thing to do is to let it go out by itself.

Blowing out candles superstition - The myths surrounding it

The superstition of blowing out candles goes back to ancient beliefs and practices. Traditionally, blowing out the candles on a birthday cake or other celebratory object was seen as a way of warding off evil spirits and making a wish. Here are a few points to consider regarding this superstition:

  • Driving away evil spirits: The act of blowing out candles was often associated with the idea of driving away evil spirits or negative influences. It was a symbolic way of purifying the environment and making the space more conducive to positivity.
  • Making a wish: In some traditions, blowing out candles was considered an auspicious moment to make a wish. It was thought that if all the candles were blown out in a single breath, the wish would come true. This added a dimension of magic and hope to the celebrations.
  • Evolving practices: Over time, traditions and superstitions have evolved. Today, blowing out candles is seen more as a festive and fun ritual for birthday celebrations. The associated beliefs and meanings may vary from person to person.

Susan Taylorโ€™s insights: In conclusion...

Blowing out a candle is equivalent to blowing away its benefits. It is important to know that candles are used to emphasize prayers or rituals. For example, the white candle favors spiritual acts, used for the rituals of Magic of consecration. The white candle is a symbol of purity. This candle is the only one that is able to replace any candle color. Thus, blowing on such a candle is equivalent to canceling the reason why it was lit.
