I love using candles when saying my affirmations, and like to use colours that match the intention of the affirmation. Today I am working with pink, for love, affection, romance, spiritual awakening, and the healing of spirit.

Before you light your candle, do a little soul work and prepare an affirmation, and then state that intention as you light the candle. For instance, if your intention is to call love into your life, consider something like:

“I am blessed with love. I am loving. I am loved. And I love my Self.” 

“My heart is open and I radiate love.” 

“I experience the world through the eyes of love.”


Scribe your candle with a sigil or other symbol (such as a heart for love) and/or anoint with a few drops of an essential oil aligned with your intention, perhaps Rose for love, Frankincense for spirituality or enlightenment, etc.

Consider using pink coloured crystals — such as rose quartz or rhodochrosite — to enhance your affirmation even more, such as:

  • Rhodochrosite is said to soothe the heart and stimulate feelings of love, and intuition.
  • Rose Quartz is said to be all about love in all its forms: love for the self, love for one’s friends and family, romantic love and universal love.


When working with candles, be sure to practise fire safety at all times:

  • Remember that a candle has an open flame.
  • Never leave a burning candle unattended.
  • Never burn a candle on or near anything that might catch fire.
  • Keep candles out of the reach of children and pets.
  • Thoroughly extinguish your candle when complete.
