The word Intention crops up in so many areas. I am clear that an intention is the first step in creating our future. Here is a beautiful article my wife, Sheila, gave me about how candles have a Universal Intention:
Candles are one of the few objects that have a universal appeal and are ancient, having been used by different cultures throughout history. They are not only beautiful to look at but have cross-cultural significance, which has contributed to their longevity. In many major religions, candles play a significant role as a symbol of passion, devotion, and connection to a higher power. Lighting a candle for someone signifies an intention to pray for them, and it is a practice that is widely adopted across different faiths.
The practical function of candles in everyday life cannot be overstated. They cast a soft, unobtrusive light that creates a restful and reflective atmosphere, perfect for relaxation or meditation. The idea of candles being used as a symbol of peace and tranquillity is one that is embraced across many cultures. In Christianity, lighting a candle signifies the remembrance of light being anchored into the world, while in Hinduism, it is a strong symbol of hope and prosperity. In Buddhism, the burning candle flame represents the light of the Buddha’s teachings.
The use of candles and incense also invokes the idea of change, which is a constant in life. Just as candles cannot exist without fire, humans cannot exist without a spiritual life. Candles are a reminder that we are part of a larger universe and that we can tap into our spiritual selves to effect change in our lives.
The use of candles as a symbol of intention is deeply ingrained in different cultures and religions worldwide. They have both practical and symbolic significance, serving as a source of light, hope, and connection to a higher power. They remind us of the power of intention, and the importance of creating a positive vision for our future.
