CandleEarlier times; individual light of your personality; your personal awareness; life energy; insight; spiritual awareness or knowledge; the soul; the relationship between God and man; reverence; ritual; mystery.

Candles are often used at ceremonies and may, therefore, symbolize relationships; cycles; the passage of time; creating the mood for romance; and past or present romance. Ritually used, they can create the safe, magic circle, which denotes another state of being.

    I had a dream I was in an un-familiar home shutting windows as the rain and wind came through the openings. on the bed mantel and see 6 look and see 6 white candles burning with 3 bees as each wick…… I had a sensation in my dream that it was a message from my deceased Father, but could not interpret the message. Do you know what this could mean?

    Hi, I had a dream there was a green in lit candle in front of me. I guess it was supposed to be like a love spell. I had to write the name of a past lover ten times and on top there were two black bugs. I never lit the candle. Could you please help find meaning to my dream?
