Candles enhance the atmosphere of any room and have been in use for over 5000 years. There is a magical quality to a burning flame that speaks to the primordial self.
In magical and ceremonial use the flame of a burning candle represents the sacred flame of consciousness; the primordial light, neither male or female, dark or light, positive or negative, good or evil. The flame is Fire, one of the five sacred elements that compose the Universe.
Candle magic is a powerful form of sympathetic magic.
