If you want to cultivate hope in your life, knowing which candle color will help you do so can be life-changing! Let’s see what’s the perfect color for manifesting hope and how to maximize its effect in your life.
Which candle color is good for hope?
Why green candles?
Each color is associated with several meanings, but a single meaning always prevails among these. In the case of the color green, the primary meaning is that of hope.
The reason why this association exists is linked to the fact that green is the color of persistent and bountiful nature. But let’s take a step back: what happens when we think about nature?
When we think about the glory of nature, various things come to mind: birth, development, growth, but above all, life, and as we know that where there is life, there is also hope. Therefore, green is the color of hope because it represents what wants to grow, assert itself, and prevail.
From all this derives the link between green and hope, which is realized in many different ways. For example, the hope of growing up healthy, the hope of living, and why not, also the hope of being able to dominate what surrounds us, as happens instinctively in nature.
The other meanings of green
In addition to associating green with the color of hope, some people and traditions provide other meanings to this color.
For example, according to Buddhists, green is the color of the evolution of the mind and body. In mythology, this color is associated with Aphrodite, who goes by the name of Venus in Roman mythology. This goddess is considered the goddess of love and fertility, which clarifies why she is associated with the green color of hope.
