A Candle Ritual for Strengthening Love

This article was written by Janina Renée
posted under Self-Help

Sometimes you may want to try something extra to rekindle love when you are concerned that your relationship is cooling off, or when you just want to infuse it with a little more passion. To enhance your romantic evenings…light the candle and say the [following] words:

I light this candle
For the love of my lover.
May its flame help fuel
The fire of passion
And the warmth of affection
Between us.

May the light of our love
Be a flame that is ever renewed.

While doing so, visualize yourself and your mate in your happiest moments, and in your most intimate moments. Vividly imagine the two of you gazing into each other’s eyes and connecting on a very deep level—the level of soul. If your mate has actually left, you could visualize him or her returning and walking through the door in a cheerful, loving, conciliatory mood—and yourself welcoming him or her in the same spirit. (Of course, if you have had a very troubled relationship, especially if abuse, addiction, or cheating has been involved, you would be better off visualizing yourself accepting a break up and moving on with your life.)


Suggestions

For rekindling passion, red candles are best, though you could use other (or additional) colors for qualities that you want to bring into the relationship (such as blue for fidelity), or burn a candle in your mate’s astral color. For candle scent, anointing oil, or incense, use whichever fragrance your mate likes best (you could borrow is or her cologne for this), or try traditional romantic fragrances like rose or jasmine, or lust-arousing scents like cinnamon, ginger, vanilla, patchouli, or ylang ylang. You could also try the old Hoodoo practice of setting your candle in a dish of cinnamon sugar.
