The black candle represents your life, decisions and experiences in the past year. Think about how your experiences have helped you to become the person you are today, what lessons you could have learned (if any), and what ways you have grown.
Burn, burn, sorrow turn,
melt away, do not stay.
Go in peace, trouble cease.
When you are done, blow out the black candle’s flame with gratitude, bidding farewell to what was.
The white candle represents the present moment and year to come. Reflect on ways you can experience more joy and wholeness each day.
Flow far, flow free,
flow in peace and harmony.
When you’re ready, blow out the flame with hope.
My secret wish for this year's ritual
was to be bidding farewell to the
year I've had, the troubles I've had,
Since that is not to be, I am leaving
it in the past, and looking forward to
a new year, a new beginning,
and perhaps a new direction.
Bright blessings, my friend!
