Candles of Advent

Updated: Nov 10, 2020

1 Dec 2019

The lead up to Christmas in traditional faiths is represented by candles. As candles are a favourite for many of us, you might like to know about some of the traditional faith meanings for this time of year.

Advent tradition basically involves four candles. A new candle is lit on each of the four Sundays before Christmas and sometimes a fifth on Christmas Day.

ADVENT 1 - HOPE Prophet's Candle ADVENT 2 - FAITH Bethlehem’s Candle

ADVENT 3 - JOY Shepherds' Wonder

ADVENT 4 - PEACE Angel’s Candle ADVENT Christmas Day - LIGHT The angel painting I did a while ago. Anytime you feel overwhelm, I encourage you to take a moment to ground yourself, go within and feel into your own inner peace and allow it to expand and ripple out to those around you in love. Reflect with gratitude.

May you receive whatever you need for your highest good.

As a resident of the beautiful Blue Mountains, New South Wales, Australia I acknowledge the Dharug and the Gundungurra Nations as the traditional custodians of this beautiful land in which we live.
I honour the custodians of sacred stories, of dreamings and the connections with the deep earth.
