Goddess Isis open winged and in her full glory. Shown here in her later image with horns and disk, Isis was the most venerated goddess in Egypt. She was the mother of Horus the Younger and wife and sister of Osiris. Considered to be the greatest magician of all time, Isis' accomplishments include bringing Osiris back to life and helping him become a god in the underworld and forcing the god Ra to reveal his secret name to her. She is associated with motherhood, marital devotion and healing the sick.
Candle burning goes as far back as the ancient Egyptians. They were not used by the Egyptians just for light, they also used them in forms of prayer and ritual. From ancient times all the way up to the present time candles are widely used in the practice of prayer and ritual. When you go into a church there are candles burning on the alter and it is certainly not because the priest needs some light. We see candles at weddings when they are lit to ensure a long happy marriage. They are even burned at funerals in honor of the dead. Candles have a special energy and power to them, a power that many are not aware of.
Lighting a candle for a particular purpose or intention is practiced worldwide from people of all walks of life. Lighting a candle symbolizes bringing light to our wishes or desires.
A candle can be lit as a prayer for peace or a request for healing, it can also be used for setting an intention like holding a space for meditation or any spiritual practice or even just simply for relaxation.
