Goddess Yemayá Candle
Intention candles are used to manifest wishes and desires. They are a way to bring your dream life into reality. When you light it, it illuminates your intentions, and when you meditate on it, it releases a message and sends your energy out into the universe.
Incorporate this candle into your ritual to invoke Yemayá. Yemayá is the Yoruban Orisha, a very powerful nature spirit or Goddess of the living Ocean, considered the Mother of All. She is the source of all the waters, as all life is thought to have begun in the Sea, all life is held to have begun with Yemayá. She is motherly and strongly protective, and cares deeply for all Her children, comforting them and cleansing them of sorrow. She is said to be able to cure infertility in women, and cowrie shells represent Her wealth. Visualize her presence, bring her into your heart, and breathe in the energy of her wisdom. Have a notebook nearby to journal your experience.

On a symbolic level, lighting a candle represents the five elements: earth, water, air, fire, and spirit. The wick and base signify earth and are vital for keeping the flame steady. The wax, which transforms from a solid to a liquid and then to gas, emulates water. Oxygen, representative of air, keep the flame lit. The flame is fire (the element of transformation and rebirth). And spirit is represented when we focus our intention into the candle and infuse it with our energy.
Props Needed: A blanket.
Props Suggested: A bolster or pillow to sit on. First, you cleanse your space and your aura. You do this by creating a quiet space in your house and using palo santo or sage to cleanse the energy. Close your eyes and visualize your goals and what you’d like to manifest. Focus on the feeling you get when you’ve achieved these goals. Do you feel elated? Excited? Let the feelings wash over you. Once you’ve meditated on it for a while, open your eyes and jot down your intentions. Blow out your candle and send your intention into the flame. Close with words of gratitude and positive affirmation.
