How to Use Candles for Manifestation

Candles are powerful tools used for manifestation, and the color of the candle you use for your manifesting is essential. When envisioning something you desire you must speak it out loud telling the universe what it is you actually want. The candle colors also matter based on your intention with their specific meanings, which might require you taking bath, or using essential oils on the wax of the candle.

Simply light your candle of choice which will help manifest what you desire and state out loud what you want to happen and what your goals and dreams are. The candle's energy can help you figure out what you must do to achieve whatever it is you're manifesting and make it a reality.

When manifesting something you also need to be specific but also realistic, positive, and kind. Speak out loud in single sentences such as “I will find love this year," or "Good luck will come my way."

You can also use multiple candles if you want to manifest something similar like using the pink and orange candles to help you manifest healing for anxiety and depression. If you want to create passion, love or lust spells use a pink and red candle to manifest a relationship.
