Create Your Ritual With 7 Day Candles

IMG_7111.jpg

We are now carrying 7 day candles that can be used in prayer, meditation, spirit work and ritual. As the name implies, the candle contained in glass, is meant to burn over a seven day period. There is no restriction on how to use the candle. Some people let the candle burn for 7 days without extinguishing it but using it in this fashion requires that you have a completely safe place in which to burn the candle. If you do not want to burn the candle continuously, you can snuff it out after you have finished your prayer or ritual.

How to Use The Candle

Before lighting the candle, set a goal and focus your intention on the outcome you would like to achieve. You can write it down on a piece of paper if you like.

As you light the candle, focus on your intention and put all of your energy into the candle as you watch the flame. This is charging the candle with your energy.

When you feel you are satisfied with the meditation, snuff the candle out. Do not blow it out as this diffuses the energy.

You can repeat the process for a seven day period. By utilizing this practice, you will become stronger at visualizing what you want and setting an intention and purpose to create what you want in your life.

The Language of Colour

Colour Vibration

More than simply bringing joy to our lives, colour affects us on a physical, emotional and spiritual level. The relationship between light and colour is symbiotic as the source of all light is colour and colour cannot exist without light.

IMG_7099.jpg

Scientifically, we experience colour in the world due to the absorption and frequencies of white light. In a sense, colour is energy made visible. For example, a leaf contains pigments that absorb wavelengths of white light while transmitting others which, in turn, creates the colour green. Colours also vibrate to certain notes and sounds which translate to many of the sounds we hear and experience in our world; sounds like waves crashing, certain instruments, etc.

Colour is a multi-sensory language you can work with and incorporate into your spiritual practice. Use it in meditation or surround yourself with the vibration of a specific colour for healing and self awareness.


The soul becomes dyed with the colour of its thoughts.
— Marcus Aurelius

Follow us on our journey through the colours

RED

As a colour, red is the highest arc in a rainbow and the first colour you lose sight of at twilight. It has the longest wavelength of all the colours and is the most stimulating. Used positively, it can inspire passion, strength and vitality. On the negative side, red can be associated with anger, aggression and destruction. While being surrounded by too much red can make us irritable or agitated, not enough red can make us fearful and cautious.

Root or Base Chakra - Muladhara

Corresponding to the base or root chakra, red is a colour of action, energy and enthusiasm. The first chakra is located at the base of the spine and allows us to be grounded. Like the foundation of a house, the root chakra is associated with stability, security and safety.

When this chakra is balanced, you have energy and self confidence. If this chakra is unbalanced or blocked, you may experience feelings of restlessness and anxiousness.

Some simple ways to balance the root chakra are to dance, practice yoga, go for a walk in nature or use essential oils like sandalwood and patchouli to create grounding.
