Meditating with Intention Candles

Peace. Prosperity. Health. Love. Clarity. These qualities all describe what we want more of in life. But what if you can have all of this just by meditating? While the well-known Law of Attraction originally inspired our Intentions Collection, meditation invokes our practice. Manifesting the life you want is just as simple as setting your intentions and visualizing yourself with your particular desire. We’ve found visualization to be most successful during meditation.

Every day, after coffee has been made and the morning rush dies down and before even diving into the day’s tasks, I set aside time for meditation. I select an Intention for the day, typically Peace or Health, my personal preferences. I light my Peace candle and turn on the soundtrack “Meditation by the Sea” and situate myself in the Sunroom, my favorite room in the house. I let the morning sun in and begin my visualization.

When attracting peace with the Intentions candle, I let the room fill with the scent of essential oils patchouli, white spruce and sage and allow my mind to drift to my serene place. To bring peace to my day, I meditate while visualizing myself in a calm and harmonious setting, usually sitting near a waterfall or lake. I embrace the sounds of the waters and allow peace to become the setting for my day.

Once a visualization is set, I allow my mind to go completely blank by focusing on my breathing, scent and physical feeling. I direct my attention to the scent of the candle, the warm sun filling the room and embrace my other senses aside from thought, allowing my mind to clear while remaining entirely peaceful.

Though I typically set Peace as my intention while using the candle for meditation, you can set so many other intentions for your day though meditation. For example, if you would like to attract more Health into your life, begin your visualization with an image of yourself manifesting strength and wellbeing. If I am attracting Health into my life, I will meditate and visualize myself hiking, canoeing or engaging in a strenuous physical activity that would require great health.
