Meditation for Lighting a Candle
Upon lighting — becoming aware of anything you are grieving or wanting to honor as it is lost to the earth and the stars — (ex. a person, or beliefs about this country, world, a relationship, a part of yourself…)
While aflame — what is transforming in the fire? Is there another realm being fortified by this offering? Perhaps asking the Divine forces to transform what which you may not even be aware of.
At the closing — meditating on how you envision the future for you, for the community, for the nation, and on the planet.
