I love Candles

I have an allergy to certain types of trees, which will trigger my asthma. So, in some weeks during the year I can hardly breath. At those moments it’s really hard for me to focus on my breathing during Meditations and I do not really get into it.

That’s when I started trying Candle Meditation. And I have to say it worked really well! Now I switch between Candle and breathing Meditation for a nice variety.

Best candles for your Meditations!

When you’re buying a candle for your Meditation you MUST make sure it doesn’t contain any toxic ingredients. Choose more natural ingredients like beeswax or soy.

Other important thing to keep in mind are the smell off course, but also the color! Different smells are recommended for different results. And colors can also give a postive or negative emotion.

Why Should I use a Candle while Meditating?

The most common way to Meditate is to close your eyes and focus on your breathing. Some people, however, are not comfortable with this or are unable to focus on their breath without trying to control it. In this case you can choose to use a candle instead.

You can then focus your full attention on the flames.. Let the relaxation begin!
