Candlemas Cleanse

On Candlemas (the Christian holiday that coincides with Imbolc), candles were blessed in order to cleanse them and fill them with positivity. Draw upon this old tradition to clear stagnation and cleanse your spirit. Gather up any old, half-burned or forgotten candles you may have lying around. If you gather fewer than eight, obtain as many new ones as necessary to reach this number, or collect old, unwanted ones from friends. (More than eight is totally fine.) Ask the Goddess to bless each candle as you hold it in both hands and envision very bright white light filling it. Then anoint it with a tiny bit of frankincense essential oil. Arrange the candles around yourself in a circle on the ground or placed around the room. Then light them all, and sit or lie in the center as you envision all their bright positivity cleansing your body and soul.
