Thank you for honoring and/or praying for those you love, remember, celebrate, or grieve through “lighting” our free candles. We are moved and humbled that so many around the world have found our Light a Candle feature to be such a comfort and support.
Many people appreciate being part of a community with a specific focus as they engage in candle-lighting rituals. As such, we offer the following way to informally affiliate with an issue, or a “group,” so that you can connect with others with shared concerns:
1. Commit to using a word that you all agree to use inside the message/dedication box (best to use an unusual word or an acronym associated with your “group” rather than a commonly used word like “prayer,” “love,” or “grateful”).
2. When looking for your group’s candles, search on the word you have chosen in the search field in the upper right hand corner of the page, as in this image:
3. All candles with messages containing that word will show. It is then possible to open the candles to read the messages.
4. After opening a candle within the group, use the back arrow to return to the grouping rather than clicking on “Back to Candles.” This way you can dip in and out of your “group” and also quickly see how many candles are lit:
We hope you find that joining with others to light candles in memory, honor, or celebration of those you love, or for concerns of your heart, will be a source of great comfort and healing.

For our Jen & Shaylee, and so many others gone but never forgotten,
Always in our hearts
I light a candle that I would find happiness, love, peace since I have been struggling with depression.
Hi Karen. When depressed I begin to thank for the gifts life is giving me each second e.g. air, water, sunshine (sometimes). And then I thank (in my mind) all the people in my life who gave me a chance, were nice to me, gave me a smile etc. and, and, and. And suddenly I feel love and gratefulness. If depressions are not too deep, this may help you too. Love Lord Henry
Thank you so much. It helped me alot.
With honour and justice for Liberty German and Abigail Williams . I light my candle and keep it burning !

I light the candle to honor all those who are standing up for the
earth’s water, air, land, wood, and animals
As St John the Baptist said …I Baptize with water but he who comes after me will Baptize with fire”. The candle is the central representation of the “fire” / teaching brought by Joshua Emanuel the Christ to help us understand who we as Human beings ARE. Used correctly through the practice of Visualization the fire ( which can be any combination of Archangel Michael, Urial, Gabriel, and Rafael and the Holy Logos ) is symbolized as the fire within the Holy Heart. As the Sufi say( it “visualization is indeed heaven”. Why? because it is the direct application of Mind Super-substance ( this is the substance referred to within the Lord’s prayer’s “give us this day our daily bread” ) and we Humans are blessed with the ability to apply this “Mind” as flame/fire to clean our Etheric bodies and become perfect reflectors of “Mind”. That is the lesson of the Prodigal Son and so must every human being learn it so they have full ownership of “The Kingdom of Heaven”.
This candle is in loving memory of Mary Kellner. May her bright light shine eternally in the hearts of those she loved, and those that loved her.
