Candle Flames and how to read them in your spell work
A lot know about Candle magic as far as candle colors, but some may not entirely understand the meanings behind the candle flame itself. And the flame has a significant meaning when doing any spell work, Divination, channeling, even just speaking to spirits or guides. But not just the flame, the smoke as well, and how it burns.
I also see passed around that you must pinch out or snuff out the flame. Not blow. But I think it’s how you create the spell and the energy you put into it that matters most.
•Clean, good, burn- a quiet, decent flame, without much smoke, movement, and dripping is a good sign. The spell you are working on will go as expected.
•Small, steady, low burning- not as much energy is being used to create the spell needed. But this flame isn’t necessarily a bad sign. Try using more energy as you’re working on the spell. It will grow if the energy increases. If not, be patient, it may take a while for the results to manifest.
•Small flickering flame- this flame may bend a bit also. Your timing may be off or the spell you are working at may not have an outcome that will workout for you. If it drowns in the wax it’s not meant to be.
•Strong flame- There’s a lot of energy in your spell works and the outcome will be good and happen fast for you.
•Dancing flame- high chaotic energy is behind the spell work. Large=potential complications Small=overwhelming opposing forces. There could be outside forces working consciously or unconsciously against you. Just keep an eye on the flame for further signs.
•Flickering flame- If used in spiritual or religious work with God, Gods, Goddesses, Angels, Guides, then your invocation has worked and was acknowledged. It is also a sign a spirit is near. You may also use it for Divination and scrying.
•A flame that pops- more concentration and energy is needed in the spell work. But outside forces may be working against you if it’s uneven. The popping and noises mean that outside forces are communicating or interfering. If you hear other sounds than pops, listen as it may be outside forces like family or guides communicating.
•Candle goes out- This can mean only two things… one: an outside opposing force has ended it and so you should ground yourself and let it alone. It’s not going to happen. Or two: the spell or what you were working for has already been attained.
•Quick burn- there’s a lot of passionate energy in your spell work.
•Blue flame- A sign of spiritual presence, usually angels, and divine spirits.
•Red or Yellow flame- smaller but still powerful energy is fueling your spells.
•Candle will not light- The spell you desire to work on is unattainable at present. It’s outside of your control or may have already been decided. Not everything can be influenced by spells. Take some time to reflect on yourself on why you were stopped from attaining your spell work. Meditate, ground yourself, do a spiritual cleansing, do Divination and ask questions as to why you weren’t able to. After meditation, cleansing, grounding, you might be in a better mind frame to go forward with it again.
•Flame will not go out- YOU ARE NOT DONE. You are being told to go back. You either missed a step, a message, something along the way and need to do more.
•Dense Black smoke- Typically means negative energy. Meditate, ground yourself, and do a spiritual cleanse before continuing because there may be opposing purposes, forces at work, bad luck, and conflict.
•White smoke- signs of benevolent spirits and blessings. Sometimes it comes as a puff of white at a certain moment.
•Lots of smoke- The air element is at work with your spell. Watch the smoke to see if there are any signs for you.
•Smoke moving towards you- A good sign that you will gain what you seek. The exception is hex, vex, and negative spell work. If this happens or it fills the room, this is a sign that you will pay the consequences for your spell and there is no escape. Threefold/karma is tricky. And truly there is nothing that justifies any type of negative spell work.
•Smoke moving away from you- usually not a good sign in spell work as this means your loosing what you tried to obtain. But in healing and influence spell work, this is a good sign as it means everything is going according to plan. Watch the smokes direction, speed, and shape.
•Candle soot- You can actually read into your spell work by the soot left from your candle and flame. Black soot can be a sign of negative energy or outside interference at work. You want to read the amount and the locations of the soot to tell you the outcome. If the soot covers the entire surface, your workings have been foiled and you’ll more than likely need to redo it. If it’s only on the top, the obstruction has more than likely been overcome. White soot indicates spiritual assistance and communication.
-Write wishes on bay leaves and then burn the leaves to make sure they come true.
-Candles have longer lives when they’re kept in the freezer.
-If you need a small boost of energy or a quick way to ground yourself on the go, carry a lighter with you and light it whenever you need. Draw on the energy from the flame to help you focus or do whatever you need.

Wannabe minimalist, is less more?
I don´ have money for that. Is the thing I keep saying all the time. Sometimes daily. I wonder why I need to use money for everything. I need to buy more clothes, jewelry, shoes, buy buy buy things that makes me.. maybe happy. I have had that void in my life, the emptiness inside that says when you buy or do something with money, I instantly feel better somehow.
Why do I have the reason consume stuff that I don´t actually need? I have been obsessed on Konmari and minimalism so much in past year. Maybe even longer, but last year has been great for me to think I do I need stuff... that I still don´t.. need..? Now I have the feeling I want to sell half of my stuff. I really don´t have the need to buy so much. And if I am gonna buy, I am really thinking do I need this, does this really add value to my life? Most of the time now a days, I don´t buy that stuff anymore. Which is really good. Because I think I am a hoarder. And a maximalist. Not a minimalist I would like to be. All tho I could be if I wanted to. Minimalism isn´t that you don´t have anything and you basically live in an empty apartment. No, you just own what you actually need and what adds value to your life.
My hoarding issues started when I was a kid. I was so used to going on fleamarkets and seeing my parents (mostly my dad) buy a lot of stuff. All of the newest stuff needed to be owned. We still lived in very cozy, neat apartment. Everything was clean and organized, but I somehow I still learned the way to buy more stuff. And when I was young, I was super lonely. I didn´t have that much friends so I just read books and realized I was a collector which was the coolest thing I could think of in that age. I collected rocks, comics, books, toys, post stamps, all kind of stuff. But that didn´t make me that happy.. it wasn´t what I hoped for. I was still lonely but I had my stuff. That continued in my adult age. Some reason I have 40 hand bags and 40-50 pair of shoes, I am not even sure how many I have at the moment. But too many.
When I moved to my little apartment last year, I realized how much stuff I have that I don´t need or even think that much. I had forgotten most of the things I have. Because they don´t have any more purpose in my life. Still I have them. I don´t just want to throw them in the trash, I would like to give some away maybe and sell. Because when I had my worst shopping desires, I have had borrowed some money from my friends so I could my more. And now I thought maybe I could sell some of my stuff and get the money for paying them back. That would be awesome. I am moving soon (hopefully), so I am gonna go trough all of my items again so it is really good time to do some inventory about everything.
How might your life be better with less? Is less more? In minimalism you think if you have less clutter (stuff in your house, stress, social media stuff etc) you have more time to think and do what you actually like and want to do. I really like that. Konmari (which isn´t exactly minimalism) says that you need visualize what kind of life you want to live and make that your goal in the progress of letting go stuff. Like, I like to do my daily exercises now a days, that would require some space and maybe certain equipment. And for that, I don´t need those other stuff. And for getting that point, I need declutter so I can get the space I need. So there is some motivation to do so. I really like the idea that I have room to show all of my meaningful items, I use only what I need, I have only what I need and what sparks joy in so many levels. I have room also for those new stuff that I actually like. Like music stuff. I would really like to have more stuff related to my hobbies.
So.. is less more to you, do you consume too much? Do you need to do some spring cleaning that is totally on the other level? What do you want to do in your life? Want to be more stress free and social?
I hope my new habits will help for getting there. I already feel less stressed.
Want more post about minimalism or maximalism? Let me know!
P.s All the pictures was taken last year after I moved. I thought it would be nice for you guys see how much stuff actually fits in here.

January and February / favorite things to do
What to do when Corona is still alive and kicking? Build a fortress! You can light it up with fake candles and fairy lights, it is pure magic!
Play awesome board games! This one is my favorite at the moment. It is all about Finnish folklore.
Make art! Any kind! I like to paint.
Dress up for no reason, have fun with new styles (or your current one) and take selfies if you like, so you remember how hot you really are. These I took with my phone.. which is dying and it has a camera that totally sucks.
Listen some inspiring music! I also made some my own, no current new songs ready though, I need to do something new for you guys to hear! But if you like, here is some old ones.
Make new backround! On your computer and your phone. I like to do these mood boards on my computer, this one reminds me of music I am making at the moment.
Craft something. This was Imbolc inspired craft. I just painted some runes on this old table cloth. I like how it turned out.
Have a nice week everyone, enjoy your life to the fullest!

Decor post: Living room
Today I decided to start spring cleaning and because it was such a beautiful day and sunshine is making everything look so bright, I wanted to also take some pictures for you. I promised decorating pictures over a year ago, so it is about time... So, I live in a house that is 100 year old, little apartment that has my living room/work space/bedroom and separated kitchen. Today I thought I could clean up my living room and it feels so cozy at the moment. I have lived in a chaos almost the whole year and there hasn´t been this clean I think.. never.
I have never been this kind of clean person.. you know, the type who keeps everything in order and clean basically every day. I would like to be though. And I am really having this crush thing about minimalism that has lasted for past year also. I wish I have the energy to sell basically the half of the things I own. I don´t need to so much, I have just too much. Maybe because I am living more smaller space, I have realized how much stuff I actually have and what I really do own.
This chair is a gift from my friend, I have always wanted a peacock chair and now I have one! It is just gorgeous. It still need little bit tlc, but it still looks awesome. I really love to put some pillows to decorate it and I also bought these beautiful fake leafs last year that fits just perfectly.
