In the stillness of meditation, I am renewed. ~ Unknown ~
When you are in a relaxing, comfortable seating position, bring your attention to the flame. As you stare at the hypnotically-flickering flame, your mind will begin its usual wanderings. Eventually your thoughts will slow, and then fade altogether and you will experience transcendence of thought where you are left with only awareness of the flame. A clear mind helps develop a problem-solving mind.
Candle meditation is a self-guided practice. Sometimes you will want a silent mind; other times, you may want to let your thoughts wander; or, you may want to do affirmations. Candle meditation is a very popular choice of relaxing and clearing the mind. It will also help you sort out your thoughts and by doing this, help understand what is needed to solve daily conflicts you might be experiencing.
We have added below one of our favorite guided meditations. This can be used for a meditation with a burning candle, a fireplace fire, or just in a quiet spot. Background sounds are of a crackling fire of a spring rain. We all need to relax more.
