Burning colored candles for health

Many cultures have always believed in the power of fire, color, candles, and meditation for health. The practice of burning candles and living in the soft, calming light of natural fire is good for the soul. Anointing candles and burning them is a way to send your prayers and hopes into the ether of the universe.

Candles are great for meditation. Along with the upward movement of the flame, the wax is burned which consists of many elements of health. The aroma of various essential oils mixed in with the wax can evoke healing properties naturally occurring in your body. The many colors that candles come in are helpful for balance which stimulates the brain to produce different healing hormones.

Burning candles unite the powers of mind, body, and spirit. Candles have been used for thousands of years to light our homes and celebrate our traditions. The candle reflects many spiritual and ethical changes we would like to bring about in ourselves. We burn them as a reminder and symbol of our desires. The fire takes our dreams out to a force more powerful than we are.

Meditation

Meditation is thought to increase health through calming the mind, body, and spirit allowing the natural ability of the body to cleanse and rejuvenate itself. People who meditate just 15 minutes per day are happier and healthier. It's a good time to care for yourself. We need to spend more time to make ourselves stronger because we tend to spend most of our energies caring for others.

Chakras and Color

The Chakras are said to be "force centers" or whorls of energy from a point on the physical body, the layers of the chakras form an ever-increasing fan-shaped formation (the fans make the shape of a love heart). Chakras are considered the focal points for the reception and transmission of energies. Seven major chakras or energy centers are considered ideal and they are represented by different colors.Wikipedia.
