Candles are lit during ritual as a symbolic message to the Spirit realm. The energy of the flame help to direct and carry your intention and fuels it's momentum.
Candle work is one of the simplest forms of manifesting your prayers and intentions in which you decide on a goal, visualize the end result and focuses intent or will to manifest that result.
Ive came to find out and experience that oils are sacred. Oils absorbs and carries our prayers, intentions and energy. Oils offer protection and abundance. I give thanks for my southern baptist upbringing, it prepared me for the journey im currently on.
