Spiritual Benefits of Lighting Candles
Lighting Candles 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

why does the candle work and not a light bulb? Also will one candle work as well as many? Do we carry the same name from life to life? When we get our readings and you tell us that we have reincarnated 31 times, is that just on the earthly plane? Just a few questions I feel need to be answered in general. You are our hope in this hell Sylvia and Chris. Thank you and Blessings to you and your family! Love always Darline and Lonny Eiesland of Piedmont South Dakota.

I love candles! They totally relax me and I truly believe that spirits visit when they are lit. I have a home based candle business. I make candles from soy wax which are safe burning candles and also safe for the environment. Recently I wrote a poem a tribute to Mother God and had the poem printed on post cards. I plan to create a gift basket to acknowledge our heavenly Mother. Sylvia thanks for all your knowledge you have brought me closer to God and in the process all of my fear of God is gone. Love you, Debra

Hey Sylvia, I am candle crazy, whenever I pass by one of those holistic shops where they sell candles, I have to walk in to see what I can buy for myself. I simply love them and use them each day whan I sit to meditate. Lots of love Ella Naidu
