Candles and Cosmic EnergyCosmic energy is the dynamic movement of Atom. The whole universal system began from a single atom which is known as the Paramaa Anu or Aadhi Anu in Vedas. As we know, we can’t destroy the energy. The energy can transform into another form of energy. The existence of this energy is everywhere. The whole universal system is a living thing, because of this energy. The same energy takes a vital part in every living being. By controlling or transforming the energy, we are capable to get or achieve whatever we want.This Cosmic Energy is essential to maintain the order of our life and to expand our Consciousness.Cosmic Energy is the base for all our actions and functions. As cosmic energy touches Earth energy, creation manifests itself gloriously.The cosmic energy can be converted from one form to another, but it cannot be created or destroyed.The Cosmic Energy exists everywhere in the Cosmos.It is the ‘space’ between each and everything.When the cosmic energy will follow the upward track from the ground state of energy level, it would jump beyond the periphery of consciousness i.e. mind. Cosmic energy is referred to as the life force and the energy that maintains the balance of the entire cosmos.Cosmic energy is also known as the energy of supreme consciousness and intelligence and we are surrounded by it everywhere and all the time. The vibration of the energy of information and light can be express on different way’s and different frequencies which is acceptable from each person depending from her energetic level.Every thing in our surrounding vibrate on different frequency and we can receive only that which are on the same level as our frequency. As much as we race up higher our energetic level, we will be open to the higher expression of the energy of information and light as color’s and notes. Colors and notes are expression of the different frequencies of the energy.Cosmic Energy which is all around us can be express in many way or named with many words with only one meaning : Universal Life Force which is in all living being.
A candle is an ignitable wick embedded in wax or another flammable solid substance such as tallow that provides light, and in some cases, a fragrance. It can also be used to provide heat, or used as a method of keeping time.There’s a lot of chemistry and physics behind the beauty and light of a candle flame.
In addition to lighting candles during meditation, you can work with them on their own. For example, if you feel enveloped by a strong fear of anything or feel anxious for no apparent reason, burning candles can help.Meditate with the Divine Light to cut loose the fear and uplift the consciousness. Then add working with candles outside your meditation. For fear and anxiety, burn powder blue, gold (there are gold-foiled taper candles you can buy) and bright orange candles together to help disperse these emotions. When you first begin, burn the candles for two hours. After the initial burning, relight the candles for ten minutes intermittently throughout the day or until you feel a lifting. If there is still difficulty, burn a powder blue candle for 10 minutes before going to bed.
Meaning of the Candle Flame
You can find important messages in the flame. Here’s some tips for reading the flames of glass encased candles.
1. Candle is burning evenly and steadily – This is usually a very good sign. An indication that the spell or blessing will probably work out and that you will likely get your wish. If you are burning a candle inside a glass, look at the glass. Is the glass clean with little or no trace of the wax? GOOD! You have most likely castes a successful spell.
2. Candle hisses or makes sizzling noises – This may be a spirit, angel or some other worldly being trying to communicate. Clear your mind so you can receive the message.
3. Candle flame sparks – Don’t want to worry you but this is interpreted as some disillusion with what you are asking.
4. Candle flame is unsteady, dipping, rising and flaring constantly – If you are sure that your candle is not sitting by a draft, then this may be a sign that your spell is being met with some resistance by the person to whom it was intended. This person may be un consciously aware of your actions and may be resisting the spell.
The flame represents the source of our creation, your inner light. … You can give power and magical qualities to the flame, but the energies come from your consciousness.Candle burning is an ancient practice in both the conventional religious sense and in esoteric spiritual practices. Almost everyone who lights a candle has an intention in mind – whether to perhaps heal a loved one or manifest a blessing, candles become the externalized fire that represents the internal inner flame of our immutable spirit.Candle burning can be a wonderful tool for manifesting great positive blessings for any of us. It’s unfortunate though, that candle burning sometimes has a bad reputation. I would like to caution those of you who don’t know what to watch out for regarding candle burning, as most of us who have been taken advantage of in this type of situation, were at a vulnerable point in our lives. Sometimes, certain unethical readers exploit clients regarding the potentially very positive use of candle burning. Candles have been lighting the way for mankind for thousands of years. At first to illuminate the darkness, later as a sacred fire in religious rites, to celebrate life’s significant moments or in memory of loved ones. The flickering flame of a candle is often regarded as a metaphor for the spiritual soul. In addition to this meaningful symbolism there is also a physical quality to candles that is of profound value. For the gracious and almost hypnotic beauty of soft glowing candle light has the ability to give light and peace to the human soul.Customs and traditions allow us to make a deeper connection with the world and the people around us. They give us a foundation to create happy memories for life. Therefore the ritual of lighting a candle can literally brighten your life. To help you create your own candle ceremony simply light on of our new luxury scented candles.When dedicated and lit, each candle displays its unique personality (shaped from your desires) that is communicated by the tiny Fire Element or Salamander housed within the flame.
This will accomplish several things. For one, it will alert the divine that you are asking for added help. In addition, it will create an atmosphere of energetic support. When one is worried, that energy is not only expressed in the auric field, it can permeate the surrounding environment which can inadvertently be picked up again, even after a meditation. And finally, burning candles can help you sustain the benefits of your meditation and keeps you from unintentionally reigniting internal patterns of worry all over again.As we work with candle burning and begin to see the positive benefits and results from such a universal tool, we should always remember that the power of the flame is eternal, perpetual and endless. We feel the burning and fire of our inner spirit – when we’ve desired something – something that is for our highest good and we made it happen! This fire cannot be extinguished – it must burn through till we achieve victory! Whether becoming healed, getting a college degree, meeting our right life partner…We drew upon the eternal flame within us and carried out our mission. Candles and candle burning augment the fire that is already within us – amplifying, projecting and strengthening our prayers, wishes and requests, like a singer who’s singing into the most powerful microphone and sound system so their voice is heard in the heavens.
Never forget, the divine universe receives the fire of this ever-present flame and envelops it in infinite spirit and grants our petitions – eternally for the greater good of all. Individuals accepting these beliefs use the burning light of candles to unfold their divine potential. What follows is an examination of these beliefs and the meaning behind illuminated candles combined with prayer and meditation. This examination will of course include a look into the significance and meaning of candle colors.Candle burning, if used properly, is a wonderful tool from the divine universe, as a gift to us – to help us manifest our positive dreams – not dreams that interfere with the lives of others. We deserve blessings, but not at the expense of others or ourselves. Below, I would love to share with you the ancient practice of candle burning and the simple instructions and “how to’s” to use candles to assist you in manifesting your highest blessings, with no negative consequences.
Some thing connected with Cosmic Energy and burning Candles are :
First, you can always burn candles for yourself. However, there are certain circumstances where someone else can burn a candle for you. If you’re afraid or emotionally charged in a negative way about something, it may be better to have someone else light the candle for you. If you have fear and negative energy regarding an area of your life, say finding the right lover, you’ll very potentially send out that fear when you, yourself light the candle, which brings back to you exactly what you don’t want. If you’re not centered about something, them another individual may be more beneficial to burn the candle for you, such as a trusted loved one, or an ethical psychic or spiritual person.
Secondly, it is bad karma to use candle burning to attempt to manipulate the free will of another as mentioned above. It doesn’t matter what you may be feeling, or how intense the emotions are, or what the spiritual rationalizations may be – trying to twist someone’s arm metaphysically creates negative karma for all participating in such an act. You should use candle burning to bring in the blessings that are yours by divine right, not encroaching on someone else’s life or their choices.
Finally , you will need a supply of colored candles at your disposal. While you can use a candle of any shape or diameter, for this type of healing therapy It is better when using the shorter four or six-inch taper candles simply because they are easier to handle than the longer ten or twelve-inch taper candles.
Once you’ve lit a candle, always let the candle burn to the bottom and let it to go out on its own. Why? Burning a candle is a prayer – literally. Imagine if you were in the middle of saying a prayer and suddenly you abruptly stopped mid sentence – “I now affirm that God brings me t…” That prayer would not be finished, so it wouldn’t be a completed request to spirit! Therefore, it is of utmost importance to burn your candle all the way to the bottom to complete your petition to the divine universe. If you can’t leave a candle continuing to burn to the bottom because of safety reasons, then get a small little votive candle that only lasts for a few hours till it goes out on its own. A less positive option and one to use only if you have to, is to pinch the flame gently or snuff the candle. This is not the best thing to do, but if in a rare instance you have to, do so, but don’t make a regular practice out of it. Then you can relight the candle later. The intent, the purpose for which you’re burning the candle and focusing such intent, is critical. As you prepare to light your candle, tune out all thoughts other that the desire you’re trying tomanifest. Focus this end goal in your mind’s eye. As you ignite the candle, focus on the flame and hold that thought clearly in your mind and see that thought becoming one with the flame. Some people like to “dress” their candles by anointing them with oil. The oil is rubbed into the candle wax and as you anoint your candle, you’re thinking of the purpose for which this candle will be burned. Most metaphysical bookstores, sell both oil and candles, and many of them will dress your candle for you for free.You are always better to start off with one candle and progress from there. When beginning to manifest through candle burning, one candle, which represents one prayer – one thought – one desire, is something that we can all grasp. It allows you to focus on one thing at a time, focusing all of your energy in that area. You never need to burn more than one candle of the same color at any given time. If you’re burning a white candle, for example, lighting multiple white candles does not make your candle prayer stronger or more effective. Certain colors of candle wax go together and others don’t from a spiritual perspective. The reason I say wax, is because it is the color of the actual candle wax that determines the “color” of the candle. Each color has a different manifestation / manifestations in your life. Below, I will explain what colors work together – and want colors cancel each other out and are not to be burned at the same time. As far as how long to stay with burning candles, that is entirely up to you. I have been burning candles on and off for over twenty years. A good rule of thumb, though, is to minimally try burning the same candle or combination of candles for at least one month straight if you’re trying to manifest something into your life.
What if you light a candle and it burns for a short while, then goes out on its own before burning all the way down to the bottom? Should you light it again? No you should not. This simply means that the energy and prayer is complete, so the candle went out on its own, as no more energy from the flame is needed to manifest what you’re trying to bring into your journey.White pillar candles should be used for the grid around the mat or table. Let your intuition guide you as to when to cleanse the colored candles, but always anoint them before use. Anointing a candle consists of rubbing a light olive oil in an upward direction towards the wick. The purpose of anointing the candle is to strengthen the color so that the energies are more vibrant and active. This is called “dressing the candle.”
Safety first when it comes to candles. Don’t leave candles unattended. Sometimes it’s good to burn them in a tray, sink or something that is nonflammable. If your work schedule does not allow you to light a candle for extended periods of time, do the candle exercise at a time when you are not so busy. Vacations, weekends, mornings or evenings are good times to work with candles.Second, as with any healing session, you should discuss the needs of the client and set specific goals for the desired outcome. This will help you set the intention for the session, and will assist you in determining which color candle will be most effective for the healing therapy. In my own personal practice, I typically use anywhere from one to three candles depending on the needs of the client and the time allotted for the session. While conducting the healing therapy session, let Cosmic Energy and your intuition guide you as to when and how to use the colored candles over the client.
Once a candle is used for a specific purpose, is to give the colored candles used in the healing therapy to the client. In my humble opinion, I do not believe in the recycling of items that have been used for such a personal purpose. Energies received and/or created could be easily transferred to another client by reusing such an item. This could turn out to be detrimental to both your practice as a healer and the next person you treat. Pillar candles that are used in the grid formation are for the amplification of energies during your practice and do not need to be given to the client. It is a good idea, however, to cleanse and re-anoint them before each session.Once the healing therapy has been completed, and before putting out the flames, visualize the client being surrounded by white healing light. Use a snuffer to put the flames out. Remember that just as when the flames are lit, so too must your affirmations and intentions be strong when they are extinguished.
Cosmic energy healing is an important facet of divine healing and deals with using cosmic energy, which exists in our universe.Cosmic energy healing is an important facet of spiritual healing and deals with using cosmic energy, which exists in our cosmos. Cosmic energy is referred to as the life force and the energy that maintains the balance of the entire cosmos.Cosmic Energy Healing combined with Color Candle Therapy is a wonderful and effective combination of two healing energies. The color of the candle helps to empower the intention behind the Cosmic Energy Healing , and the fire from the candles helps to seal the healing for more lasting effects. White pillar candles are also used in the form of a grid around the table or mat to work as amplifiers for the colored candles and assist in the communication with our higher source for the facilitation of the healing process.We can and it is very useful when we combine these two powerful healing modalities. The procedure can be followed as I have outlined below, but the Cosmic Energy practitioner can also follow his or her own intuition during the healing in the interest of the intended higher good. That’s the beauty of the healing arts; there are no real wrong ways as long as your heart and intention are set on the greater good.The colors that you should burn are mentioned below. It’s important to know the correlation between the color of the candle wax you’re burning and what these colors mean from a spiritual perspective. What areas of your life will be benefited from the color of the candle you light? Since each color affects different areas of your journey, below is a guide as to what each color represents metaphysically, what these colors can do for you, when to use such a candle and which candles are compatible with each other: Regarding multiple candles of different colors, (for example: pink, gold and blue) you can sometimes burn more than one candle, but I would recommend starting with just one color in the beginning. Once you’ve began manifesting from the one candle, (this may take multiple candles of the same color, one at a time, over a period of time) you can then do two candles, then move on to perhaps, three. However, it is not recommend to ever go above five different candles burning at the same time.
