Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings

Candles are commonly used in religious ceremonies and in prayer. Because of this, they are representative of spiritual guidance and enlightenment.

A candle in your dream may either be revealing your own spiritual attitudes or showing you that you may need some spiritual guidance at this point in your life. Because candles are also used to physically guide people through the dark, in dreams, they are representative of your life’s path and the difficulties you face every day. If there is a candle in your dream, it represents the amount of spiritual guidance or religious enlightenment you have in your life. You may be undergoing a major change or something else that requires the intervention of another person or a god or that requires spiritual enlightenment. Use your dream to help you figure out what your dream may be trying to communicate about your spiritual life. You are constantly on a spiritual journey and it is up to you to find the guidance you need to help get you through. Look at where you were in your dream to give you some sort of clue as to what it is you want. If you are somewhere beautiful and luscious, you are seeking more beauty in your life. If you are led to a crowd, you are seeking the love of others.

Detailed dream interpretation

If you light a candle in your dream, you are on the right path to seeking enlightenment. You have lit the candle; therefore, you are taking responsibility in your spiritual quest. This means that you know the steps you have to take in order to get on the right track, and now you just have to take that first step forward. If this is a religious quest, talk to your spiritual leader to see what you can do to move closer to the right path.

If the candle in your dream is not lit, you are having trouble starting your quest. You need to figure out what is missing in your life, and try to find who or what is best equipped to fill that void. If the candles in your dream are in a cake, you are feeling like you have gone too long without this spiritual guidance and you are afraid it may be too late. Your subconscious aims to show you that it is never too late. If you used the candle in your dream to successfully get through something extremely dark or extremely difficult, it is a good sign. It shows you are able to make it through difficult situations with or without spiritual guidance. If you used the candle in your dream even though it was already light outside, it is not such a positive sign. You rely too heavily on spiritual guidance or outside influence to get through difficult times. Learn to be independent so that you can trust yourself when things get tough.

Candles symbolize life, eternal spirit and play a significant role in the spiritual world. Their symbolism is quite unique, especially in dreams. To dream of candles shining in the dark, it represents hope, and the battle you’re fighting against the darkness inside you. To see many candles in your dream foretells celebration, special ceremonies, and other pleasant events that will occur in the near future.

However, to dream of candles burned down signifies the passing of our time. Our dream is trying to tell us we only have a short time here on earth – things are not forever, and the light of candles that has an expiration time. According to many dream experts, (Freud and Jung) the candles in dreams represent acknowledgment, appreciation, and usage of an important lesson learned.

Candles also symbolize the ending of a life phase, and the beginning of a better period in our lives. To sum it up, the candle in your dream is a symbol of wisdom, warmth, enlightenment, and spiritual growth. We often see candles being used in religious and non-religious ceremonies and events. Therefore, in religion the candle represents our faith in God.
