So I having experienced this first hand and how it works and can it help with many things such as healing or getting a job and etc…
Candle burning goes as far back as the ancient Egyptians. The Egyptians used candles for light, also used them in forms of prayer and ritual. From ancient times all the way up to the present time candles are widely used in the practice of prayer and ritual. Candles have a special energy and power to them, a power that many are not aware of. People light candles for prayer and that is OK. Some think when a candle is lit to help bring a little love into your life then it is considered spell casting and therefore evil or even black magic. Well that is not at all the case. A spell is simply an intention that is put out into the universe. Whether it be a simple prayer at bed time or lighting a candle at church for your sick family member, it is still a spell so they say. Even though your own thoughts can create your own future, candles bring more of a charge to that intent. This is why it is important to always project positive energy and positive thoughts, it affects our energy and our lives. The same goes for burning candles for a specific intent.
Some people also believe in blessing their candles and even burning the candles on specific days of the week and during different phases of the moon. I certainly would pay attention to the moon phases when doing a candle prayer. If you are looking to gain something such as love, maybe a candle for a new job or career, you should do so during the waxing moon. That is the time from the new moon to the full moon. If you are trying to rid yourself of something, like a habit or illness, then you should do this during the waning moon. That is between the full moon and the new moon.A prayer to use – “In the name of the light, who is the lord of the universe. May the light and energy of this candle remove all fear, negativity and doubt and transmute to a powerful Healing force. May this candle attract Healing, positive energy to (fill in name here) For the highest good of all and for the good of the universe, so be it, so be it, so be it.
Chakras By themselves, candles are excellent meditation tools. The flickering flame of a candle has a hypnotic, calming effect on your mind and body. Combining them with color therapy, however, gives a depth to your meditation practice that is truly amazing. This is because different colors resonate to one or more of your chakras, which govern certain parts of your body and certain emotional states. Though their influence is largely subconscious, and we cannot see them with our physical eyes, chakras influence every area of our lives. Now you can harness the power of candles and the power of colors, focusing them into a powerful meditation practice.
