Color Healing, Candles and You

Color and Candles - The candle has been used in religion, for healing and for metaphysical purposes for about as long as fire has been around. It is a very powerful symbol for the activation of more fire and light in our lives - on physical and subtle levels and it represents the eternal light of the soul and the connection to Source.

Fire has always been regarded as something holy, magical and mysterious. The color of the candle emanates its vibration to enlighten the moment and facilitate focus.

In most societies, fire first belonged to the gods; the legend of Prometheus and the creation of humanity are but one example. According to the Columbia Encyclopaedia, Prometheus is the great benefactor of mankind. He was the son of the Titan Iapetus and of Clymene or Themis. Because he foresaw the defeat of the Titans by the Olympians he sided with Zeus and thus was spared the punishment of the other Titans. According to one legend Prometheus created mankind out of clay and water. When Zeus mistreated man, Prometheus stole fire from the gods, gave it to man, and taught him many useful arts and sciences.

Fire operates in all aspects of life. From volcanic fires to the fires of ordinary body heat to that all consuming fire of passion in the belly, from the solar fires to the fires of intellect, fire's presence is felt nearly everywhere.

When we use the fires of candles, we are participating in the ritual of fire that has existed throughout the ages. Therefore this healing practice should be seen as an ancient ceremony of creation.

In this ceremony we can view the unlit candle as the unlit essence of life energy in the physical body that awaits a renewing touch of fire to help restore health to body and soul. When you light the flame of the candle, imagine you are creating light where there was no light before, bringing warmth and healing where it is needed. This imaging or visualization in itself is extremely healing. See some healing candle layouts here.

Here are some simple rules for candle use in healing:

  1. Its color must respond with the healing required as its vibrational force is activated, released and amplified when it is lit. (Consult this page with some colors)
  2. TThe one you choose should be cleansed and anointed before using by rubbing with a light olive oil in an upwards direction towards the wick. This process is called "dressing the candle." It strengthens the color so that its energies are more vibrant and activated which will make them far more effective for your purpose.
  3. Once used for a specific purpose such as in healing, it should not be used for something else as this will set up conflicting vibrations.
  4. A strong affirmation of intention must be performed when the flame is lit as well as when it is extinguished as if you are firmly setting and locking the healing energy in place.

Get yourself a snuffer or use wet fingers to put out the flame but do not blow it out.
