Candles and Their Color Meanings

Candles are a great resource to use to assist in situations where you are having difficulty. Each candle color means something different. By burning the colored candle for a particular situation you can help to release or gain the desired outcome. The key to this is using your Intention to create what you are asking for. Once your intention is created, burn the appropriate colored candle. I use the tall glass candles (like what they use in a Catholic church) and I leave it continually burning until it completely burns out. Please make sure that your candle is in a safe place, like on a stove, and away from anything that can disturb it (like pets and children).

Here are the color meanings of candles:

  • Pink Candle – Represents Love or Romantic Relationship. Ask Archangel Chamuel and the Love Angels to assist in bringing love and a relationship into your life.
  • Blue Candle – Represents Communication. Ask Archangel Gabriel to assist in helping in relationships.
  • Green Candle – Represents Healing or Abundance. Ask Archangel Raphael to assist with “healing” ones body. Ask Archangel Ariel to assist in bringing in financial abundance.
  • White Candle – Represents Purification. This candle assists to help “protect” and cleanse oneself. Ask Archangel Michael to assist you with protection, safety and purification of oneself.
  • Purple Candle – Represents Intuitive Wisdom. Ask Archangel Metatron to assist in channeling “spirit” or strengthening your intuitive wisdom.
  • Orange Candle – Represents Careers. Ask Archangel Ariel and Uriel to assist bringing in the “right” job/career for you.
  • Yellow Candle – Represents Happiness. This candle assists in bringing in what you desire which leads to happiness. Ask Archangel Uriel to assist bringing in happiness in your life.

    Does it matter where the candle has come from? Can it be any candle or a specific brand?

      Hi Cat- No you can buy any type of candle and it will work! What matters is the intention when lighting the candle!

      Hi Christina- the only book that I can think of is The Magic Candle by Charmaine Day- It is a small book that covers the candles, meanings, dressings of the candles, how to use them for you and also planets. So the book covers a wide variety of topics for everyone! Let us know if you have any other questions!

      Hi! There isn’t a specific candle for seeing visions, trust me i would be using it! However, you can use a purple candle for spirituality and put the intention into working on opening up your visions! I hope that helps! Terri

      Sure! Read the blog on “what is my life purpose” that will will help. Basically, a life purpose is what you are here for in Earth School. Think of this as what you signed up for. For lust, that is bringing in someone strictly for lust, passion, or sex.

    what candle can i light if i want to collect something from someone and that person don’t want to give me

      Hi Nicholas- The only thing I could suggest is to light a blue one for communication to clear up the misunderstanding between the 2 of you. You cannot make a person give you something as that is their free will. However, this will help to clear that energy to hopefully open the eyes of that person to want to give whatever that is back to you. Does that make sense?
