Something I’ve been doing in 2022 when I am feeling anxious or overwhelmed about situations and people I can’t control is lighting a candle for them.
Sometimes I even write a little message on a piece of paper and place it under the wax.
Did you know that you can pull tea lights out of their containers?
I cut little strips of paper, write down an intention or request, fold it up, place it in the tin, place the candle back on top, then I light the candle while thinking or saying my intention. (See photo above)
Example: Archangel Michael and Metatron, please watch over _______. Thank you.
I tend to say more than I write like, “Archangel Michael, can you please protect _______ from lower energies and Archangel Metatron, can you please nurture _______’s sensitive nature. Thank you.”
I have found that when I do this, it lessens my anxiety and allows me to be more open to see solutions or handle situations with a bit more calm.
You can also pick candles based on their colors or chakra association too. I share in the photos below info about Blue and the Throat chakra from my book, Tend To Your Vibration.
You don’t have to have any spiritual beliefs to do this either. You can ask the Universe, ancestors, or Mother Nature for help or simply light the candle as a way of easing your anxiety or worry.
What matters most are your thoughts and energy.
I have already grown so much this year and this ritual for anxiety has helped me so much that I wanted to share it with you too.
p.s. I like to ask Archangel Michael to protect, clear, and shield myself and my loved ones. Archangel Metatron is mentioned in the Talmud and some people believe is helpful with parenting sensitive children.
