I've been practicing candle reading for awhile now and I wanted to know your thoughts on a something that happen to me.
Usually I tend to trim wicks that seem too long, but this time I lit the candle without trimming, so when I lit the wick, it was sort of hanging over..so I actually had two flames somehow, one on the lower part of the wick, and one toward the base of the wick, then as I watched the two flames dancing around each other, coming together, going apart, then coming back together again, it did this a few times each time the flames joined they stayed together a bit longer before seperating, then atleast the two flames joined and stayed like that for a few minutes, then the flame became one. I thought to myself, two become one..
Would you have read it the same way?
FYI - I was lighting the candle to ask for Yemaya's (Virgin De La Regla) assistance with my honey jar, which also was weird because usually I work with Oshun (Caridad de Corbre) and while I was preparing the honey jar, I kept thinking/saying/hearing Yemaya..so I took this as a sign that she wanted to work with me on this.
Also FYI - For those that may not know Yemaya and Oshun are sisters, and are Orshia's or Saints (depending on which form you want to work with them in, I usually work with them in their Saint form. I was planning on alternating red and pink candles on the honey jar, what came to me was they are both wanting to work with me..I heard a woman's voice tell me when I light a pink candle invoke Yemaya, when I light the red candle invoke Oshun. Which made me feel very happy and peaceful inside, since both women are known to work with affairs of the heart, Yemaya is a more gentle, loving Orshia, while Oshun is more about the sensual nature of women.
I am very well aware that Santeria and Root Work are two very different and seperate things, but I have a strong faith in my Saints and I've asked their assistance/blessing on my rootwork. I am new to hoodoo and am learning more and more everyday. I have a great respect for both and I just hope I didn't upset anyone going on about it here. My sincere apologies, if I shouldn't be discussing these things here.
My most gracious and humble thanks to La Caridad Del Cobre, for all of your blessings and guidance in my life.
St. Martha, St. Michael, La Virgen de La Regla my most humble thanks for all that you do on my behalf!
