Aloha! For as long as there have been candles, there were people who believed that a lit candle would connect the physical world with the spiritual realm. We all have a natural maybe primordial need to create some light in our lives. Lighting a candle always seems instinctively just the right and natural thing to do.
Candle burning is practiced in almost every religion and esoteric spiritual practice. Candles are ceremonial, ritualistic, symbolic and utilitarian all at the same time. When you go into a church or temple, the feeling of a safe and sacred space is often enhanced by candlelight. Aloha Bay sells thousands of our candles to religious, yoga and meditation centers. Our candles are lit at weddings to ensure a long happy marriage, and they are burned at funerals in honor of the dead. Candles have a special energy and power to them.
Webster's dictionary definition of votive is dedicated or performed in fulfillment of a vow. Votive candles are often lit with prayerful intentions. The burning of candles for spiritual purposes is a practice that dates back to earliest times. To light a candle for someone indicates the intention to bless or help that person. The flame symbolizes heartfelt lightness and love. Everyone who lights a candle has an intention in mind whether they think about it or not. Maybe it's to enhance the ambiance at a meal, fill a room with a pleasant aroma, ask for or give a blessing, or to re-experience a memorable or meaningful scent that reminds us of a loved one or a precious moment.
Candles not only create a romantic ambiance at a meal. The small flickering flames combine the calm that comes with twilight. When the meal is served, we try not to discuss business, get into arguments, or bring up topics that stress each other out. If the conversation becomes harsh, at least the atmosphere can be gentle. Candlelight is indeed soothing.
Burning a candle is also a wonderfully effective ritual to reaffirm or boost one's energy and enthusiasm for what needs to be accomplished. Further, lighting candles helps one to relax, letting the world and all busy-ness melt away.
Truly, candlelight is powerful, often magical, and is so essential to our lives.
