You and Candle Colour Healing
The candle has been used in religion, for healing and for metaphysical purposes for about as long as fire has been around.
It is a very powerful symbol for the activation of more fire and light in our lives - on physical and subtle levels.
It represents the eternal light of the soul and the connection to Source.
The colour emanates its vibration to enlighten the moment and facilitate focus.
Fire has always been regarded as something holy, magical and mysterious.
In most societies, fire first belonged to the gods; the legend of Prometheus and the creation of humanity are but one example. Prometheus is credited with having stolen fire from the gods and given it to mortal mankind.
Fire operates in all aspects of life. From volcanic fires to the fires of ordinary body heat to that all consuming fire of passion in the belly, from the solar fires to the fires of intellect, fire's presence is felt nearly everywhere.
When we use the fires of candles, we are participating in the ritual of fire that has existed throughout the ages.
Therefore this healing practice should be seen as an ancient ceremony of creation.
Look upon the unlit candle as the unlit essence of life energy in the physical body that awaits a renewing touch of fire to help restore health to body and soul.
When you light its flame, imagine you are creating light where there was no light before, bringing warmth and healing where it is needed. This imaging or visualization in itself is extremely healing.
Simple Rules for Candle Use
Once used for a specific purpose such as in healing, it should not be used for something else as this will set up conflicting vibrations.
A strong affirmation of intention must be performed when the flame is lit as well as when it is extinguished as if you are firmly setting and locking the healing energy in place.
Get yourself a snuffer or use wet fingers to put out the flame but do not blow it out.

The Art of Travis Louie
This fastidious Krampus always has a pair of disembodied hands levitating in front of it, constantly gesturing like some vaudeville magician(at times, even performing "slight of hand" tricks) For the most part, he uses his hypnotic gaze to put children into a trance, convincing them that they are chickens or chartered accountants working for a firm about to be audited by some large, ruthless government agency(scary stuff).
Spooky pop surrealist Travis Louie created his own imaginary world that is grounded in Victorian and Edwardian times.
It is inhabited by human oddities, mythical beings, and otherworldly characters who appear to have had their formal portraits taken to mark their existence and place in society.
The underlining thread that connects all these characters is the unusual circumstances that shape who they were and how they lived. Some of their origins are a complete mystery while others are hinted at.
He's created portraits from an alternate universe that seemingly may or may not have existed.
Travis Louie is also one of 50 Artists featured in the second publication entitled Metamorphosis 2.
