candles & intentions

When you light your candle, it illuminates your intentions, and when you meditate on your intention, it releases a message and sends our energy out into the universe. On a symbolic level, lighting a candle represents the five elements: earth, water, air, fire, and spirit.

The wick and base signify earth and are vital for keeping the flame steady.

The wax, which transforms from a solid to a liquid and then to gas, emulates water.

Oxygen, representative of air, keep the flame lit.

The flame is fire – the element of transformation & rebirth, like a phoenix rising from the ashes.

Spirit is represented when we focus our intention into the candle and infuse it with our energy.
