Having the right color present during our witchcraft can enhance our spells and rituals. A colored candle is a good way to ensure that color and its energy truly becomes a part of our practice and enhance it. In this article, I will be discussing the color that boosts creativity and some ways you can use it in your practice.
Which candle color is good for creativity?
A green candle is the best candle color for boosting your creativity as it is associated with vibrant, positive, active energy.
Why green candles?
Green is the dominant color in nature. It is the color of fertility, life, hope, the color of spring, and the rebirth of flowers. Modern technology has embraced the color green as a symbol of permission, such as on a traffic light, or of affirmation that something is on and working. In psychology, green is associated with constancy, balance, self-esteem, and security. In general, green is a relaxing color that promotes calm and inner harmony.
The wavelength of the color green seems to favor creative thinking, perhaps because it evokes safety, reliability, serenity. Even marketers use green to push positive concepts in relation to the product they need to launch.
In short, if you need a good idea or a dose of artistic and poetic inspiration, spending your time in contact with nature will do you the world of good. Great painters such as Monet, Cezanne, Renoir and Van Gogh (just to name a few) painted “en plein air”, in the open air.
They were masters of capturing the essence of light and the poetry that only nature can give. Their creativity, nurtured by the outdoors, has given rise to many of the most important creative and visual innovations of all time. Their works inspired further creative sparks, such as Impressionism art, which before was unheard of.
Imagination is an inexhaustible source of well-being and moreover, it is the only energy that cannot end. The more it is trained and used, the stronger it becomes. The Science of the Self knows this very well. In fact, imagination is a fundamental pillar of the method. Creativity and imagination are the absolute greatest powers that humanity has at its disposal.
Imagine a caterpillar that is a nice bright green. You can observe him as he slowly climbs the tree on which he lives. By attaching itself to a branch of the tree, the caterpillar begins to form a cocoon. Gradually it becomes enveloped in gold threads until it is completely hidden from your view. Look at the cocoon. Now imagine you are in it. Surrounded by the softness of silk, rest in the protective warmth of darkness.
You are only vaguely aware so that you do not clearly realize what is happening, but in this apparent stillness you feel that a mysterious force is at work.
Finally, the cocoon opens, and a ray of light enters through a crack.
As soon as the light caresses you feel a sudden increase in vitality, and you realize that you can get rid of the cocoon: you discover that with the cocoon you also get rid of your supports and your defenses. You are now freer than you ever dreamed of being. Imagine you are a multicolored butterfly.
You realize that your borders have expanded immensely, and now you can fly. You are in a completely new dimension made of colors, sounds, open spaces. While flying, you feel supported by the air. Imagine gliding pleasantly and then flying upwards again.
You settle on one flower, then on another, then on yet another. Feel each flower in its uniqueness, with its color, its scent, and its characteristic atmosphere. Take some time to fully perceive the various aspects of your new freedom and lightness.
