Meditation guided sessions probably inspire you to set higher goals for yourself and to continue meditating as a method of achieving these goals. Ask any religious or spiritual friend and they will likely agree about the importance of candles. From Christmas trees in days of yore to the spiritual connotations of a candle’s color, nearly every major belief system features the use of candles to enhance the spirit and provide energy. Introducing a candle to your meditation sessions can invigorate your routine through an influx of positive energy.
Before you buy your candles you should decide what your goals are, as different candle colors can help with different attributes you wish to enhance. For example, if your goal is inner peace, the candle you use will be a different color than if you are focusing on breaking bad habits or placing your focus on romance. You do not have to make a formal list, but instead you can simply think about the desires and intentions you have while meditating. Think about why you meditate, and the first things that come to mind will be what you should enhance through the use of candles.One word of caution when dealing with candles are that certain precautions need to be taken. This is especially true if you are closing your eyes and going into a trance-like state. Make sure they won’t topple over and surround them with water or a fireproof surface. It would also be good to have good ventilation in your room, as the smoke from a candle can be noxious.Meditation goals of inner peace, purification or protection call for white or blue candles, which will be the most helpful in charging the energy around you in those respects. If you are looking to improve your spirituality, a purple candle should do the trick. If you are looking to heal through meditation, orange and blue candles will help you generate healing energy. If you aim to remove negativity, go with a black candle. A yellow candle will help with the creative aspects of your mind. Red candles assist with passion and power. For romance and happiness, go with pink. For fertility and money issues, a green candle is what you are after. You might have noticed that blue candles work for both healing and inner peace, so if you are aiming to boost both of those in your guided meditation process, a blue candle provides double the power for your investment.The shape or size of the candle is nowhere nearly as important as the color. You might not want to use, say, novelty birthday cake candles, but you can use almost any candle that is a solid color. Your faith in the power of the candles is crucial, as your energy will feed off the candle’s and vice versa. To incorporate candles into your meditation, you simply place the candles in your meditation space and light them before beginning your practice of meditation guided.
