Candles for Intention Setting

Candles at For Heaven's SakeCandles to use when setting intentions
By Eliza Marie Somers

Setting intentions is not limited to just New Year’s Day. You can set intentions/resolutions any time of year, say, during a new moon, a full moon, the solstice. 

A new study cited on CNN states that micro-resolutions are better than year-long resolutions. So when you are ready to make a move, here are some suggestions using candles for your intentions during a seven-day period. (I use seven because seven is a sacred number, calling upon the Divine, Creator, Universe, God.) 

The following sequence was adapted from Mile Hi Church.

Day 1: Light a red candle to represent new beginnings.
Prayer: As I light the red candle representing new beginnings, I plant the seeds of my intentions in the fertile soil of the Creator’s energy.

Day 2: Orange candle represents self-respect and cooperation.
Prayer: As I light the orange candle, I realize that we are all connected to Spirit, who lives in all. Knowing this, I am Divinely led in my thoughts, actions and deeds. 

Day 3: Yellow candle represents self-worth.
Prayer: As I light the yellow candle representing self-worth, I realize that my empowerment comes from the Creator. Knowing this, I am confident that my desires and goals can be transformed into reality when arising from the Universe. 

Day 4: Green candle represents love.
Prayer: As I light the green candle representing love, I am surrounded by God’s unconditional love. Spirit lives in all and I am immersed in this love at all times. As I understand this, I live, move and have my being in the Creator and know that I am loved unconditionally. 

Day 5: Pink candle represents achievement and success.
Prayer: As I light the pink candle, I know that I gain wisdom and clarity from the Creator on my next moves to achieve my goals. I allow Spirit to guide me to know my truth.

Day 6: Indigo candle represents self-responsibility and intuition.
Prayer: As I light the indigo candle, I tap into my intuition, knowing that I am Divinely led by Spirit. I am led to right action to produce the highest and best outcome for myself and my life. 

Day 7: White candle represents spiritual awareness.
Prayer: As I light the white candle representing spiritual awareness, I am made aware of the union between all and Creator at all times. We are all one. We are all connected via God, Spirit, Creator, Universe, and knowing this I declare: With God, Universe, Creator, Divine, Spirit all things are possible. 

We carry multiple candles (styles/brands) at both our locations (Denver, Lakewood). Come see us when you’re ready to set your intentions for 2020! Wishing you a Happy and Blessed New Year.
