New Supplier…..New Candles!
As Christmas approaches, I have taken delivery of some beautiful candles from a new company in Wales – Gauci Candles. I realised that many people only buy candles at this time of year to dress the table, or to place around the fire, and they are unaware of the beautiful power behind a candle and the energy it can evoke.
The lighting of a candle before Yoga Practice and Meditation can enhance your focus and help keep the energy flowing. Using a candle as part of your ‘sacred space’ to represent FIRE is often balanced with items such as shells to represent WATER, feathers to link to the element of AIR and crystals or flowers to connect with EARTH…A very Shamanic way of working and adding focus. Candle magic is one of the oldest and simplest forms of sympathetic magic, with simple candle rituals having been used for centuries. It is extremely easy for beginners to perform, since there are no elaborate ceremonial techniques required. It is however worth sourcing good quality candles with a long burn time and no Paraffin. Soy wax candles are the preferred choice. Eco friendly, no black smoke and no oil smell. That’s why I chose Gauci…..and they are made in the UK which helps too! Choose your candle carefully. Colour is important, as each colour has its own vibrational energy and will attract certain influences. For example, a green candle is typically used to attract abundance, while blue is often used for health issues. Many people choose colours depending on the Chakras they wish to balance and energise. If you are starting to learn about these powerful energy centres treat yourself and buy a whole set of Chakra Candles. Try a different one each day with your meditations….The Chakra candles I stock are also scented with pure essential oils that resonate with each energy centre. See how you feel. Focus.
We also stock aromatherapy blended candles, virgin, uncoloured wax, but scented with aromatic blends such as Sleep Sleep Snore ! Prices start at £7.50 for small tins that burn for 18-20 hours. Perfect for stocking fillers or a treat for yourself to use at home. A candle is much more than a table decoration!
