Intention Candles : The Ritual

Candles, they have the the power to create a soft and relaxing ambience, to captivate you with their flickering flame and to spark different emotions in you with their scent and colors.

Whether they are used for practical or spiritual reasons, we can all agree that candles have something special. Ohra Creations intention crystal candles have been specifically created to help you connect to your true desires, to bring you hope, inspiration and motivation, and to help you attract what you want in your life. Keep reading below to discover the step by step ritual to help you unleash the powers of your intention candle.

Before we start, it's important to clarify that although Intentions candles and crystals have powerful attraction powers and will guide you towards what your heart wants, they won't take actions for you. I firmly believe that combining visualisation and taking massive actions is the winning strategy. Once you get clear on what it is that you want and why, it's easier to start taking actions. Once you do get clarity on your goals and aspirations, and start taking actions, that's when the universe will get on your side and send the right opportunities your way. 

Here are the steps to unleash the powers of your Intention Candle and use it to attract what you desire:     


  1. Clear your head and your space
    You can use Palo Santo, Sage or Incense to cleanse your space. Place the Candle on a solid level surface away from any drafts or flammable objects. Stand or sit in front of your candle. I invite you to close your eyes and take deep breaths while focusing on your respiration or use any preferred meditation technique to clear any heavy energies and distractions from your mind.

  2. Create and visualize 
    Once your mind is clear, stand or sit straight, continue taking deep breaths and create a detailed image in your head of the goal you wish to manifest. Remember that you are the creator of your visualization and it should be as detailed as possible. Focus not only on the image but also on the ambiance and the feeling you wish to create. Envision yourself achieving this goal and concentrate on how it makes you feel. Be open to your emotions and let the energy flow through you. Your Candle is not lit yet, you can place your hand on the candle and crystals to charge them with this intention. You can say your Intention out loud, write it down or recite it in your head, whatever feels natural and comfortable to you.

  3. Light up your Intention Candle
    Light up your candle, stare at the flame and send your intention into the light and crystals. Inhale the wonderful scent while focusing on the goal and feeling you seek. The association of smell, thoughts, and feeling is powerful to help you connect to your intention. Repeat your intention out loud or In your head as many times as you want while always continuing to nourish the feeling of manifesting your intention.

  4. Gratitude
    Close your Intention Candle Ritual with gratitude and positiveness. You can say words of gratitude out loud or in your head. You can use common gratitude words, but I suggest you make your own. Here is one of mine for inspiration :
    ''Thank you universe for all the good things in my life. Thank you for my health, my family and friends. Thank you for my creativity, my motivation, and my patience. Thank you for the experiences and obstacles that have prepared me. I am now ready and open to receive all the awesome things you have planned for me. Thank you universe for manifesting my Intention (focus on your intention with a grateful heart)''.

You can let your candle burn up to four hours. On the first burn, it's important to allow the wax to melt all to way to the edge of the container. You can either let the crystals sink in the wax, they will continue to release their good energies. Or, once the candle is extinguished, you can use a small wooden or metal spoon to take out the crystals. Rinse the crystals with hot water to remove the wax. You can carry the crystals with you as a reminder of your intention, place them by a window or anywhere as part of your home decor.

Every time you light up your candle visualize yourself achieving your goal. Even when the candle is not lit, you can simply look at it, smell it or place your hands on it to reconnect with your intention.

Take daily actions towards your goal while focusing on the result and that feeling you will experience. Even the smallest action is a step forward in the right direction. As long as you keep trying and take actions to realize your goals, the Universe will provide you with tools and guidance to help you achieve anything you desire.

Believe firmly that you deserve everything you wish for. You owe it to yourself to try your best. The Universe is counting on you and needs you to realize your best potential, so you may accomplish what you were meant to do.
