Whether it’s transmitted through strangers, friends, colleagues, or family members, negative energy is present all around us.
This is why, in the spiritual realm, silver candles play a crucial role in removing negative thoughts and energies from one’s mind and surroundings.
In this article, I’ll guide you on the silver candle’s spiritual importance, benefits, usage, and different meanings.
So, better buckle up because this is about to get… real… SILVERY!
What Does A Silver Candle Represent Spiritually?
Like the orange candle is known to absorb energy from the sun, the silver candle absorbs energy from the… MOON! In fact, the color silver has long been associated with moonlight.
This is perhaps the reason why silver candles symbolize spiritual enlightenment and are believed to shine rays of positivity onto your dull life full of negative energies, thoughts, and people.
Silver candles and their burning flames also represent a bridge to divinity.
So, lighting one up and walking this bridge may help you tap into your spiritual self and draw out possible answers and meaning to your existence.
What Are Silver Candles Used For?
Silver candles are perfect for meditation as they promote mental stability and balance.
If your life has been a mess lately or you’ve got too much on your plate, setting aside a few minutes for meditation with silver candles can help balance your body’s chakras and ease overpowering or stressful thoughts.
They can also be used to achieve psychic powers and abilities to build a stronger connection with the divine.
This will win you the divine’s protection and favor which should eventually guide you toward the path of light.
Silver Candle Meaning
A silver candle can mean a lot of things, but, most importantly, it means prosperity.
It helps you focus and put all your thoughts toward your dreams and gives you the persistence to turn them into reality.
The silver candle also symbolizes intuition which can help you realize and go after what your heart desires.
It shields against the herd mentality and keeps you from being part of the mediocre rat race that 90% of the world is stuck in.
But, apart from that, intuition can also help you channel your true self which is crucial for living a happy and fulfilled life.
Silver candle in Manifestation:
Different colored candles are used to manifest different things.
A red candle can be used to manifest love and passion, an orange one for self-confidence and the silver one helps manifest… WISDOM!
Wisdom is a deeply-desired trait, and quite the attractive one to say the least.
I mean…who doesn’t want to be (or know) the most knowledgeable, experienced, and insightful individual in the group, right?
Silver candles can help you achieve that.
They illuminate your hidden wisdom, sharpen the mind, as well as improve cognitive performance.
But, apart from wisdom, they can also be used in manifesting:
- Spiritual wealth;
- And, inner beauty (personality).
Silver candle in spells:
Using silver candles in spells can drastically help enhance psychic powers and connection with divinity.
These spells could be for acquiring hidden knowledge, interpreting dreams, or even forming connections with the supernatural.
The silver color’s association with moonlight can come in handy when illuminating the spiritual realm.
Till the candle’s flame burns you may feel a slight spike in supernatural communication and response as well as your own psychic abilities as the candle may also serve as a bridge between you and the unseen world.
Silver candle in a prayer:
Using silver candles in prayer could be an ask for divine guidance.
If you’ve been going through confusion, indecisiveness, or periods of overthinking, lighting up a silver candle and concentrating your thoughts to form a spiritual connection with the divine can most definitely help.
Divine guidance can help:
- Solve problems;
- Organize muddled-up thoughts and ideas;
- Find answers to unanswered questions;
- Get rid of obstacles in life;
- Unlock your full potential;
- And, figure out your strengths and weaknesses.
As I mentioned earlier, silver candles may help you feel closer and more connected with divinity.
The light not only signifies prayer but also ensures the presence of god in the Catholic church.
The flame from the candle is believed to represent Jesus Christ as he is known as the “light of the world”.
For Catholics, this light symbolizes hope and love.
Are Silver Candles Dangerous?
No… NOT AT ALL!
Silver candles are supposed to represent hope, love, and prosperity for everyone and their radiance illuminates the wisdom, knowledge, and insight we have buried within ourselves.
The candles are known to raise psychic abilities which can help us understand unseen forces and even win the favor and protection of the divine.
But, like any other candle out there, you need to keep it away from flammable objects, dried forests, untied hair, loose clothing, and, most importantly, young children.
7 Spiritual Benefits of Burning Silver Candles
Are you ready to see the spiritual benefits of burning silver candles? Let’s move forward!
1) Detangle Thoughts
As humans, we all have hundreds and thousands of thoughts stuck in our heads every day.
These thoughts can be business ideas, work, studies, calculation, love, relationships, family, and whatnot.
But, sometimes these thoughts can get all tangled up like headphone wires which, as we all know, is pretty annoying.
So, in that case, lighting up a silver candle and letting your mind absorb its calming energy can work wonders in freshening up and organizing your cluttered thoughts and ideas.
2) Tap Into Your Intuition!
Logic and learned responses play a huge role in determining what, why, and how we make certain decisions.
But, just because they play the role doesn’t mean intuition or “gut feeling” isn’t important.
Tapping into your intuition is crucial as it not only brings out creativity but is also a way of guiding yourself.
No, don’t get me wrong, external guidance you receive from family members, relatives, colleagues, or friends is definitely important, but, at the end of the day, it’s all their point of view!
So, to figure out what your point of view is, you can perform some light meditation with silver candles.
Remember: Whether you trust others or not, there’s one person you should always trust… YOURSELF!
3) Ward Off Negative Energy!
Whether you realize it or not, negative energy is present all around us.
People wishing bad upon you, backbiting, evil eye, and jealousy are all part of life.
But, there eventually comes a point when you should say NO to all the negativity, and, to help with that, you can use silver candles!
As I mentioned earlier, the radiance from a silver candle is often associated with moonlight, which should help in keeping all the negativity around us at bay.
It can also help ward off bad dreams and nightmares that you may experience while sleeping!
4) Gain Wisdom
Wisdom and spiritual awakening are shown to be superior and more attractive attributes than just beauty and wealth.
In fact, wisdom is known to attract people in ways that beauty simply can’t. If someone is wise, people won’t take long to realize and be instantly drawn in.
But, gaining wisdom is not as definitely not as easy as it sounds.
You obviously can’t just suck in lots of knowledge and experiences out of nowhere.
So, lighting up a silver candle and letting its silvery moon energies sink in and expand your inner world can just be your first step to getting there.
5) Gain Stability
Instability in life is common for a lot of us either because of workload, bad routine, family issues, or past traumas.
But, as petty as instability sounds, it can definitely cause major issues in the long run.
Think of it this way: You’re not in control of your life, your life is controlling you!
As boring as predictability and stability might sound, these two aspects are responsible for making us feel safe and secure in this world.
The truth is – human beings just don’t handle instability well!
So, to regain stability and control over your life, you may want to try meditating with silver candles in an undisturbed room.
Trust me, you’ll be astonished by how it works!
6) Balance Feminine & Masculine Energies!
Balancing masculine and feminine energies is important for both men and women.
As a matter of fact, if one seems to overpower the other it may cause a lot of inner distress for the individual.
Maintaining a healthy balance between masculine and feminine energies can help you live a more harmonious and fulfilling life.
You see, masculine energy, as defined by nature, is based on logic whereas feminine energy is more intuitive and rooted in the heart.
This stark contrast between DOING and BEING is important to realize and accept instead of choosing one over the other.
7) Be More Present In The Moment.
I’ve often stressed the importance of living and being present at the moment as it is one of the only ways you can live life and not just go through it.
However, things like work, family, stress, regrets, tragedies, or anxiety can really keep us living either in the past or the future. You may think you’re physically present but your mind surely isn’t.
So, to practice living in the present, try meditating with the calm and comforting energies from a silver candle and only focusing on one thing at a time.
