Lighting up an candle in a ritual form might seem unnecessary for some people. But a ritual is al about the intention behind it. A candle represents the light in you or the light of a tribe member that is not or totally no longer within your surroundings. Lighting a candle reminds us that even if we are dissociated from ourselves or loved ones we still remember there light and energy.
We all move on with our lives and that is a good thing but sometimes a candle needs to be ignited in darker moments.
