Candles and color have been used since the beginning of time for practical, ceremonial, religious, decorative and romantic purposes. Combining the use of candles and color for meditation or other spiritual needs will maximize the outcomes and the sheer enjoyment of the experience.
Candles can conduct and redirect energy. Color is a form of vibrational energy that is picked up by your subconscious and penetrates your aura. Using colored candles during meditation or independently with intentions can alleviate stresses, empower, calm, and impact all aspects of one's life.
