Establish the connection

For centuries people have lit candles in order to initiate any ritual, from making a wish, praising a sato or invoking a deity, but for them a connection is always established.

Close your eyes while you light the candle you have chosen and try to come into contact with it, with the fire it gives off and the smoke it emanates. Evoke your spiritual strength and your energy and project what you want to achieve, your most longed-for secrets, while trying to connect with ancestral beings and all the power of the universe.

Although the visualization and the connection you generate with the candle are enough to attract what you want so much, if you choose the right color that suits what you want, its magical associations will help you reinforce the ritual, and therefore guarantee complete success.
