Candles are used in many religions for many spiritual meanings.  They also can be used in your daily
practices for healing, prosperity and spirituality.   

Candles are often used during religious and ritualistic ceremonies. Many people associate ceremonies using
candles with the occult, black magic, witchcraft, etc. Nothing is dark or negative unless it causes harm
to someone or directed negatively towards someone with a negative intent. Most often originates from a
dysfunctional soul.

Some of the reasons why to burn candles:

  • Prayer work
  • Manifesting
  • Healing
  • Asking for assistance for angels, saints etc.
  • Conquering addictions, fear, worry, etc.
  • Meditation
  • Removing negativity in the home and around the person.
  • Protection
  • During intuitive work


I always recommend having a white candle lit for protection and bringing in the white light.  Also, to
keep a white candle lit when using any other candle and keep it to the left of the colored candle.


  • Never blow out candles - always snuff them out.
  • Use only wooden matches to light candles and incense.
  • Always allow white candles to burn completely down.
  • Protection candles or ones to remove negative energy should not be burned completely down.  Only
    until it reaches ½ inch left of the candle.  The candles with this purpose consume the negative
    energy.  When the candle is finished then throw it out so that no one would be able to touch it.  
    Make sure you always burn a white candle with any protection candles.

To promote balance and harmony in the home and your life you can burn a yin and yang candle.   Yin
and yang candle is one is black and the other is white.   The purpose is to balance the energies.   Light
them both together and allow them to burn.   Only allow the white candle to burn completely down.  
The black candle is consuming the negative energy so only allow it to burn till it reaches a ½ inch.   
Then you will want to throw the candles completely away.   Because the black is holding in the negative
energy.  If your candles burned fast then you will want to repeat this with another set until you feel
the energies have balanced.
