Spiritual Benefits of Lighting Candles
Lighting Candles Psychic Sylvia Browne, World-renowned Psychic Sylvia Browne pictures by Sylvia Browne

Do you love candles? Many people do! I know that I have often benefited from the spiritual energy that candles possess. Lighting a candle is an ideal way to make saying your affirmations or positive thoughts even stronger. You can create your own special spiritual exercise or ritual that has great meaning to you. It is important to focus on your spirituality and to spend time increasing your positive energy.


What is the meaning of candles? Candles have been used by religions and spiritual groups around the world for centuries. Many light candles to remember a loved one who is now on The Other Side. Candles are used to celebrate and used for special ceremonies. It is no surprise that candles themselves represent unity, peace and love.


One way to use candles is to light a candle as you say your affirmations. Affirmations are defined as positive thoughts that you wish to bring into your conscious world. Many like to think of this as a positive thinking exercise. Saying your affirmations with a lit candle can help make this an even more special time for you. You can say affirmations for any purpose: health, abundance, relationships/love, career, success and anything you desire in your life. Simply create a statement that is positive that you would like to attract. Light your candle and focus on your affirmations.


When you light a candle, this is also an ideal time to surround yourself with Godís white light. This white light is available for each and every one of us, simply by requesting it. This white light is actually Godís sacred aura. You can feel Godís love and compassion whenever you need it the mostóor just everyday! A wonderful ritual is lighting a candle and asking for Godís white light to surround you.


Many people like to burn a candle for love or for relationships. Burning a rose-scented candle is ideal for love and romance as you say these heart-felt prayers. You can also burn a candle for your family. Consider burning a candle for every member of your family at the very same time! These are wonderful rituals to honor and treasure your relationships. Surround your loved ones with Godís white light as you pray.


People are often drawn to various colors of candles to use for different purposes. Just as the rose-scented candle is ideal for love and romance, you may feel other candles are ideal for other prayers and purposes. What someone else says about the color is less important than what you yourself feel about the candleís color. Hold the candle and just feel if this candle is right for this specific intention. Know that you will always choose exactly the right candle.



Love always,


Sylvia Browne

Making time to share with and listen to children and your spouse is very important. Always tell your children and spouse, you love them.

Positive Ideas: PEOPLE COME INTO YOUR LIFE FOR A REASON" People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime. When you know which one it is, you will know what to do for that person. When someone is in your life for a reason, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed. They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally or spiritually. They may seem like a Godsend and they are. They are there for a reason you need them to be. Then, without any wrong doing on your part or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end. Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away. Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand. What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled, their work is done. The prayer you sent up has been answered and now it is time to move on. Some people come into your life for a season, because your turn has come to share, grow or learn. They bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh. They may teach you something you have never done. They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy. Believe it, it is real. But only for a season. Lifetime relationships teach you lifetime lessons, things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation. Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas in your life. It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant. Thank you for being a part of my life, whether you were a reason, a season or a lifetime.

Positive Ideas: Some of you are afraid that if you stand up for yourself, you will lose someone's love. Some people are quite good at convincing you that you are in the wrong when you do stand up for your beliefs. Thank them silently for providing you with the opportunity to become strong, for often strength is developed in the face of opposition. Self-respect means standing by your deepest truth and making yourself, and not another, the authority of your feelings. (ORIN AND DABEN)

Positive Ideas: Compassion is caring for yourself; valuing yourself and your time. You do not owe anyone your time, unless you choose to do so. When you take charge of yourself and affirm that you are a unique and valuable person, the world will affirm it to you also. (ORIN & DABEN)

Positive Ideas: Everybody can use more love. Do not take offense if people are rude or unkind or seem like they are trying to hurt your feelings. You cannot know what is happening with them. Send them love no matter how they act. It will come back to you many times over as increased love in your life.

Start by BELIEVING that you do have a purpose, a concrete purpose, and can begin by asking it to unfold for you. Everything you have right now in your life, you created from the past. Everything you have from here on out can be created at this moment, and it can be created differently. Ask yourself whenever you can, "What is the purpose of this moment? What is the purpose of this activity?" As you do this, you align with the higher purpose of your life. (ORIN & DABEN

Positive Affirmations: Waiting for others to act in certain ways to be happy is making your happiness dependent upon something outside of yourself. It is turning your power over to other people and allowing them to determine how you feel. Calm emotions come from knowing that what you feel is your choice. You do not want your good feelings to depend upon another person or an outside situation. Put your energy and time into going higher and making your own life work. (ORIN AND DABEN)
