How can crystals and candles help me deal with a recent breakup?
Thank you so much for your patience and for contacting us! Candles + crystals can work together in many ways. Both a candle and a crystal can be used together to complement one another. It is common to work with the colour of a candle and coordinate it with your crystal magic. For example, if you're wanting to open your heart chakra you might use a green candle + a green crystal. You could do this with any of the chakra colours. Another example might be to connect to your crown chakra using a white candle + a clear quartz crystal.
I find using an affirmation in crystal + candle magic to be useful. I generally take a small candle (burns out in a couple hours) and carve my intention or affirmation into it. I light the candle while holding the intention in my minds eye and crystal(s) in my hands. While the candle burns down, I will think about my intention and take that time to do some self-care!
This ritual can work in many ways; you can also carve what you want to let go of into the candle. If you're going through a breakup, you could use this candle + crystal ritual to release the feelings that your having a tough time with.
Rose quartz is used by many people going through breakups because it helps us see love everywhere, including within ourselves. It also helps us to let go, if that's what we need. Even though pink is not the colour of the heart chakra, it is a colour of love which coordinates with the heart. Burn a pink candle while in the presence of rose quartz to help love flow easily into your life.
Remember that your intention is the key to your healing. Having a strong + clear intention for the healing will assist the crystals + candles by directing their healing energy.
