For centuries people around the world have burned candles in remembrance
of loved ones who have died, as a way of healing the past and bringing
hope for the future. Lighting a candle is viewed as a sacred ritual in
many different traditions and religions.
There is a soothing, healing effect in lighting a candle. A solitary
candle brings light in the darkness; it is also a symbol of the human
spirit. Lighting a candle can be used as a meditative tool. The simple
ritual of lighting a candle and watching the hypnotic flickering flame
is calming and relaxing.
During times of sorrow or times of challenging, lighting a candle can
give you something to do, a way of focusing your thoughts, intension or
prayers on a problem or a person.
