Wishing Candles are commonly used to burn before shrines towards which the faithful wish to show special devotion. Candlelight contains an almost mystical quality that cannot be duplicated by any form of electricity. For centuries candles of different colors have been burned to attract desired emotions, material wealth, or karma. Candles can be one of the most effective tools used for meditation, rituals and other ceremonies. Meditate and establish a psychic link between the candle and yourself. Be specific in what you ask for and don't get greedy. Do not use candles to put negative energy onto others. Always be careful what you wish for, you might just get it.
