Dressing a Candle

Post by d-knots on August 12th 2009, 7:49 pm

Fire can be dangerous
and as such
we tend to put it out asap
or make sure it's out so as not to
allow the fire to damage anything
it wasn't intended to in the first place...whew!

ok,
candle dressing is when a candle is anoited with oils
and some other things like salts or glitter
with intentions for a particular outcome

sometimes good and sometimes bad
you would hope it would all be good...
it's just another form of sending energy into the universe

white = purity, spirituality, health
red = love, reverse negativity
black = curses, melting away bad luck (black isn't always bad)
green = money, prosperity

these are just some of the known purposes

I'm working on the money...LOL....my retirement fund
I'm an independent contractor and I pay my own taxes...not funny...Heaven

the oils can be very pleasant aroma

I'd stick with short candles for safety reasons
the tall glass containers take days over 4 to melt
and they are oven hot!!!

so my advice it stick with candles that you can control

I also heard to not blow out a candle when wishing or
focusing on a particular purpose just put it out with the wet fingers
or a snuffer (lack of oxygen) then relite later for futher focus.

I have a book I can share some tidbits in it with you....

I light candles every day at work, One tall one with a Guardian Angel picture on it. I say a prayer for protection when I light it. The other two that I light is for the aroma. Both by Gold Canyon, Sugar Cookie and Fresh Orange. mmmmmm, so yummy smelling, I just keep them lit for about 2 hours a day, and it still smells good in here all day. When customers come in, they say, It smells good in here, what's that smell? I say "It's me!' Then I tell them what it really is.

Not too long ago, I lit an old candle that was in a ceramic holder. Not too long after I lit it, I suddenly jumped out of my chair, without reason or plan, I ran back to the area where I have the candles lit, and saw that the wax had spread through a crack , and the whole container was ablaze, the fire was about 20 inches high, just one inch below a wooden shelf that I have a little collection of dolls on. I was able to blow out the fire, without it damaging anything at all. I took the container out to cool, then I threw it away.
I wondered at first, why did I even go back there? Was I gonna get something? Then I realized how Blessed I was for somehow being told to go back there NOW.
So be careful friends, make sure your candle containers aren't cracked.
With Love, Linda

Candles have been a part of my spiritual practices in the past, and anointing candles with oil would be something new i may try. Are there certain kinds of oil that is to be used? Where can i purchase these oils? I usually use reiki charged candles made by Crystal Journey Candles These candles create a warm loving atmosphere for me before doing meditation or reading. I am very happy you have posted this because i haven't had these spiritual candles in sometime and i know i need to buy some. Thank You

Many Blessings

I can picture how nice your store must smell, i can almost smell it :flo: got a chuckle when you said to your customers that the smell from the candles was you that smelt good, and im sure you did smell really good Wink I have also used tall candles with spiritual figures on the jar, they have a wonderful atmosphere about them, saying a prayer before lighting them has inspired me, to say prayers when i light candles i will try and remember this. Thank You

Many Blessings

I wanted to mention to you all, regarding candle safety, sometimes when I blow out the flame, I have seen a little spark fly off the candle, Yikes! Drives me Bananas, till I know for sure, that the little spark died out. So blow softly, then look at the wick to make sure it does not light up again. One morning when I came in, after knowing I blew out all the candles, one of the candles was still lit. Holy Moly! So now I DOUBLE check. I think the candle snifter is a good idea, I will look for one.
Have a Fantastic Weekend my friends, with Love, Linda (-:

ok,

I found this shop in North Carolina through
my daughter who wanted peace of mind by a reading

(we love Sandra the reader there - prayers for business safety appreciated;
she surely has a gift of seer and is open to being loving
but she has to be aware of safety rules - she was a tad too trusting with a
customer and they stole her notebook so RESPECT for our fellow seers, please....LOL)

the family (Dinah and Bill) is kind and love repeat customers...LOL...

I actually visit weekly with my daughter and depending
on whats going on I go with her often....

some of the oils I have are winning number (lily of the valley scent),
money drawing ( green apple scent), john the conqueror (earthy spice scent),
a and egyptian musk ( soft honey flower scent...LOL).
The most two difficult ones to differentiate are lily of the valley and lilac; they almost smell the same.

there are other oils too, more herbal ones, that Sandra (it's the connection to nature)
uses for dressing candles; I had my first with her and it was a master candle
that touched upon all aspect of ones life. She asks to put your name and birth date on
a piece of paper then she wraps it with a prayer and stuffs it in a tall glass
candle then she pours oils powders and glitters as need be for the intention
of the votive.... Those candles burn for at least 4 days and get oven hot so you have
to keep them in a water filled bowl.

there are more oils in the store than online but if you find an equivalent
store near you this sight gives you and idea.

I just pour some oil directly on the candle not the wick, in/around the dish
(preferably a flat surface[dinner plate or wider bowl] to see if there are any messages
once the candel has burned to the end and cooled - the divination), on my hands to
the candle. The aroma helps to focus on your intentions.

There is a difference in divination regarding the method of in what you burn your candle
For example, a short, medium, or tall votive candle holder burns straight down but when allowe
to melt on a wider surface the wax forms shapes that can be read
( similar to tea leaves or coffee grounds...etc)

UPDATE: 8/28/2009

problem are welcome. Please, let me know what kind of problem you

I would very much like to order the 2 oil scents, thanks d-knots the link works great Thumb

Many Blessings

ok my Spiritual Friend,

I'll let them know it might just be my computer...LOL
Time for a cleaning
like a Feng Shui

Aroma is very important...

It reminds me, for example, of English class in College
where someone who hadn't washed in what smelled like two weeks
affected my way of thinking; negatively while composing my essay
doesn't work well at all.

A few days later someone else sat next to me
and they had taken a shower and were spruced up
well my entire outlook was joyous, bright, and creative
regarding my composition.

Aroma matters alot about our outlook;

thats why public places like offices and stores
or libraries even the coffee shops
(the coffee scent calms me and masks upleasant odors)
would benefit in aromatherapy and clean air altogether
- where lots of folks gather on a daily basis or such.

the oils can be placed either on your body, on the dish
on the candle or even in an oil heater.... or any combination...


TIDBIT:
I just wanted to mention about broken candles
that is when the glass breaks
when a candle is lit with an intention
to calm, protect warding off negtivity, ...etc
and the glass busts it supposedly means
that someone was sending some malice toward you
and the candle protected you from their
sort to speak "curse" against you....

Also, it's some kind of rule not to re-light
a candle that has gone out too early
but the exception to that is when you
re-light it the candle protects you further
so, sometimes, for some folks it's better they
listen to their intuition when it comes to
re-lighting a candle that went out before it
burnt down.
(Sounds spooky but it's part of ritual and intention; the Spirit)

I said that my intentions where to focus
my lottery numbers....well, I won three times
this month but only the minimum win; I got the
powerball or megaball number 3times which is hard to
get and sometimes I got two numbers but not
enough to win. Yet, I must say I was blessed
to get any numbers at all because to play
and not hit any is entirely sadder than what
I recieved...LOL... better luck going forward. :~~:

If you blow out the candle you blow it's energy away from you. That is why you are to pinch it out.. or if using for spell work slam it out and crushed with palm of hand as say " so let/mote it be/or amen
I also am of the belief you should never reuse a candle if you have lit it for a specific reason.
Not just as spells but if your intention on lighting it was for a blessing or say green to draw money to you etc.
Votivs are best for things of that nature cause they are short and will burn the soonest .. then bury them or wrap in white ribbon to throw out..
If you have oiled it and carved it also do not reuse.. especially if used for spellwork..... buy a bunch of colored votivs for these.
I buy big candles only if am using it purely for its scent to make house smell good.
just my thoughts ...
