Candles and Focus

There are times in our lives when we need a little divine intervention. Sometimes our lives can head in directions that we would rather not go and we would like to take definite steps to change this direction. This is where the power of prayers, rituals, and manifestation comes into play. We all know that during those practices we must keep our focus on what we want without distraction to ensure that they are as effective and accurate to our wishes as possible.

However it is precisely at those temporarily chaotic times in our lives that it can be so incredibly hard to concentrate and keep the focus that is necessary. When our minds are so focused on all the things that are going wrong it can be downright tricky to get ourselves to focus on those good things that we want to bring into ourselves.

Fortunately for us we have at our disposal a very useful tool in the form of candles. Candles work as a focusing device in two very distinct ways. The first is that you can "pre load" as it were the intention you wish you put out into the universe during a time when you are not distracted by other problems. In this way you do not have to worry about focusing your energy on exactly the right thing at the right time. Much like a battery allows us to carry energy around with us for when we need it, so too can a candle act as a portable prayer or spell for later use.

The second way that candles can be focusing tools is the very fact that they are real objects. You can pick up a candle, hold it your hand, select the color that you would like to use and work with it. Having this physical reminder of what you are trying to accomplish can work wonders in keeping your mind on the task at hand.

Everybody needs a little help sometimes, and candles can be that help for you today. For more information about candles as focusing devices and tools for spiritual growth please see the "Angel Blessings Candle Kit" by myself and Doreen Virtue, available at Amazon and fine bookstores everywhere.

Thank you,
