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 isn’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.

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.

Susan Taylor’s insights: In conclusion...
