Happy Dreamy Thursday. It is
one of my favorite Rainy days here
in the city. So I'm reveling in
the beautiful grayness of the day.
This week's Dreamy Thursday is on
My love affair with candles
started from two candles my mom
had in our kitchen. She had these
beautiful ivory candles in elegant
gold candle holders. My mom never
lit the candles. I asked her to
but she said she liked them for
I was fascinated. I decided when
I was older, I get candles to use
no matter how pretty they are.
When I graduated from college,
I began to buy candles and light them.
Candles fed my romantic nature.
As my spirituality evolved, my bond
with candles grew deeper. They
helped me to connect with The Divine deeper.
Now, having candles is a priority
in my life. I stock up when I can.
So I can always have candles to light.
I light my candles all times day and night.
Candles don't have to be just for the evening!
When I can, I buy nice candles
from Marshalls or a Bontanica shop near
me. In a pinch, I purchase small novena candles
at my local grocery for a dollar. The
candle sits on my altar and gives my
whole bedroom a beautiful glow.
Here are the list of candle colors that
I use in my prayers, ritual, mantras.
White: all purpose for whatever you need.
Blue: healing, spirit, blue sky thinking,
Red: passion, love, energy, strength, Tuesday
Green: healing, fertility, money, plants/flowers,
Pink: healing, love, friendship, fertility, Friday
Yellow&Orange:wealth, sunshine, optimism, strength,
healing, Sunday, Wednesday
Black: banishing, releasing negativity, protection,
Gray/Silver: protection, dreamtime, the moon, Monday
Purple: spirit, royalty, wealth, Thursday
If you haven't lit a candle for
a while, get one over the weekend.
