Coloured Candles and Healing

Coloured candles have a more meaningful significance than simply a decorative value. Their therapeutic and healing effects must never be underestimated. The various colors have a great influence upon our health, thoughts, and actions. The proper choice of color is of the utmost importance for one's success (see list below) when burning candles and when combined with prayer and faith, lighting and burning coloured candles can produce miracles.

The colour of the candle and it's vibration is activated, released and amplified when it is lit. As the candle burns, the colour is released into the surrounding areas and affects those in this area. For instance lighting a candle in a healing room, during a healing, will enhance all the energies; both in the room as well asin the patient. You can also light a candle in remembrance of someone that passed on or to light their way to the next world.

Two examples jump to mind here, the Catholics as well as the Jews light them for the departed, secondly in times past the wife of a sailor would put one in the window to light the way home for her husband.

You can light a candle to power up any intention following the simple rules for their use. The colour of the candle that you use, is determined by your intention or the kind of healing needed. For example lighting a white candle for love, light and gratitude in your life or lighting a green one for more abundanceand prosperity in your life. Consult the list on which coloured candles corresponds to different conditions and intentions given below.
