Candles function as physical angelic messengers, just as angels are emissaries of prayers. Each candle color and archangel who specializes in their particular shade can assist in health, relationships, love, and finances.
By Desiree Szabo
I always find comfort when I light a candle, when you feel a bit under the weather or when your faith needs restoring. There is something magical about the red/orange violet color of a flame lighting up your sacred space. I feel safe and reassured when I call in my archangels for help. Candles are used to calm, focus, and center the mind during meditation, prayer, and your intentions.
I am here to show you how you can work with candle colors and have a special relationship with specific archangels. Each color has a particular function. I am often asked from my readers regarding what the colors mean. I hope that you learn and practice angel blessings rituals and call upon the archangels. Be creative and enjoy working with your candle colors. Just jump right in and enjoy yourself. Remember, you cannot make a mistake. The archangels are waiting for you to call upon them for help and guidance.
Surprisingly enough, I noticed when I used candles and called in my Archangels that my prayers manifested at a rapid rate. It is important to maintain a clear mindset. In other words do not attempt to be under stress, when you partake in candle blessings. It is best to take a sea salt bath or read meditative thoughts.
Cleanse and dressing your candles
Candles are like psychic sponges. The most effective and simplest way to clean new candles is to have positive thoughts while submerging them in sea salt and fresh water when you take them out of the package. Many individuals have handled your candles and need to be cleansed of their psychic energies. Submerge your candles for five minutes and clean them with a white towel. Then, when they are dry, use household extra olive virgin oil or essential oils to dress them lovingly with care. Your candle is most powerful for three days after you consecrate it.
Create your sacred space
It is important that you choose a sacred space for your angelic blessings ceremonies. It does not matter how small or large, expansive or complex the setting is. What is important are your intentions, which you are holding to occupy your conscious mind as much as possible. It is best as intuitive, or as a beginner, to raise your vibration as much as possible. How does one embark on such a spiritual journey? By eating organic foods, beverages, and abstaining from substances that are mind altering. I know it can be tough, but once you establish this routine, the angelic realm will speed up time in answering your prayers. You are sending instructions out into the universe. Candle blessings are heard from the archangels.
