Are you ready to unlock the secrets of manifestation and tap into the transformative energy of intention candles? With a clear focus on your desires and the right tools at your disposal, you can manifest your dreams into reality. In this blog post, we will guide you through the art of setting intentions and using intention candles for manifestation. Discover the profound synergy between manifestation and intention as we delve into the process of creating positive shifts in your life.
This is something we have produced beautiful results with time and time again, and have seen so many of our clients and customers at the Periapt do the same. Manifestation is not for the faint of heart, as sometimes it can take lots of mental, emotional + physical work, so while I wish there was a quick and easy fix (and sometimes intention setting there is) for everything, please keep in mind that this is energy work and is a process. (Are you ready to lean into the trusting the process?)
To note, energy work operates on the understanding that imbalances or disturbances in your energy field can manifest as physical or emotional ailments. By releasing stagnant or negative energy (aka BLOCKAGES) and replenishing it with positive and harmonious energy, you can experience a sense of rejuvenation, improved emotional well-being, and a deeper connection with your higher selves.
Choosing the Perfect Intention Candle for Manifestation
Manifestation and intention go hand in hand, and intention candles serve as powerful catalysts for this process. Learn how to select the ideal intention candle that aligns with your manifestation goals. From vibrant hues to enchanting scents, explore how specific colors and fragrances can enhance the power of your intentions, bringing your desires closer to fruition.
Color magick is a fascinating practice that harnesses the power of colors to influence and manifest specific intentions and energies. Each color holds unique vibrations and symbolism, making them powerful tools for transformation and manifestation. When we look at colors of candles, you want to go with something that is the same color magic or color psychology that you are bringing your awareness to.

Scent is such a powerful sense, yet it's an easy one to forget about. Olfactory senses tend to be the closest linked to memory and can often be a mood-booster, so it's understandable to note that the power of scent can help us not only set sacred space for manifesting our intention, but actually get us in the mood to bring that intention to fruition.
Aromatherapy harnesses the therapeutic properties of essential oils for physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. It's thought to evoke specific responses, promoting relaxation, clarity, and even physical healing. By incorporating aromatherapy into daily routines, such as diffusing oils or using them in candle form, we can experience its powerful benefits of stress reduction, sleep improvement, and overall spiritual wellness. Aromatherapy is often suggested through the use of essential oils, but in my personal practice I've found that non-toxic fragrance oils and even incense also take me to that divine space within myself to manifest my desires.
Here are some common intentions + scents to help get your intention fired up! Play with an intention candle or even with incense or essential oils and see what you find works the best for you.
cinnamon, orange (for the joy that money can provide), patchouli, bergamot, ginger, sandalwood
rose, apricot, cinnamon, ylang ylang, jasmine, sandalwood
orange, lemon, lime, watermelon, bergamot, peppermint, rosemary, frankincense
lavender, cedar wood, frankincense, rosemary, sage
The Easy-Peasy-Manifesting Ritual
After you've chosen the perfect intention candle for you through color or scent, you can start your intention setting observance.
Craft Sacred Space: The environment in which you set your intentions plays a crucial role in manifestation. It's almost like needing to be in the right mood, the right time and place, and creating that space to feel yourself in the moment. I personally feel that this is a very intuitive element, because while there are certain crystals and incense and this-that-and-the-other that you can use for a specific metaphysical property, I suggest leaning into your intuition and choosing what you feel is right. This is a very small and effective exercise to create sacred space in which you'll also be tapping into your own divinity and telling Universe/Source, I'm ready for guidance, I'm ready for surrender, and I'm ready to have faith.
This is where you'll spark your intention candle, incense, draw a tarot card, or do a smoke cleansing prior to affirming and visualizing.
If you are someone that really wants to get it right (any big earth zodiac placements, I'm talking to you 😉), look up specific crystals that correspond with your intention. If you feel at all scared about what you're doing, you may want to hold a selenite or a black tourmaline to help ease your fear, or do this at a later time. There is nothing to fear if you are doing everything out of love and harming no ones free will.
The Power of Affirmations: Amplify your intentions through affirmations serve as the bridge connecting your intentions to the manifestation process. Periapt candles come with an affirmation, so you can use this as your mantra or you may look up ones you feel cover your intention more fully. You may also take a moment and write out an affirmation that feels best for you. Uncover the power of positive self-talk as you develop personalized affirmations tailored to your manifestation goals. Affirmations and mantras are beautiful at amplifying your impact and reinforcing the belief in your ability to manifest.
Visualize, Believe, Receive: Now, the manifestation trinity of visualization is a key component of the manifestation journey. Reinforcing your intentions and align your subconscious mind with your desired outcomes. It is scientifically proven that athletes who practiced vs athletes that visualized BOTH received impressive results towards their game.
Visualization, just like meditation, doesn't come easily to everyone though. So give ourself grace. It may not be the first intention setting that you truly see everything in your minds eye. You may need to give your third eye (the chakra slightly above and between your eyebrows) a few taps to wake it up. Imagine what your intention would look like, smell like, taste like...
And most importantly what it would feel like.
The next step is believing that you'll be receiving that feeling. Whatever that feeling you'd get from your intention, tap into it. Believe that it's already yours. It's almost as if you've ordered it through Amazon and you just have to wait the day for Prime to deliver. You know it's coming, it just hasn't arrived yet. The more you believe, the more likely you will receive.
Meditate on that paired visualization and feeling.
Combined with the radiant flame of an intention candle, your visualizations gain momentum, attracting the experiences and opportunities needed to manifest your intentions.
Manifestation and intention are powerful forces that can transform your life. By integrating intention candles into your manifestation practice, you tap into the energy of focused intention and amplify your manifestation potential. With careful selection, a sacred space, affirmations, and visualization, you unleash the magic of manifestation, empowering yourself to manifest the life you desire.
Embrace the profound synergy between manifestation and intention, and witness the extraordinary results that await you. Start your manifestation journey with intention candles today, and unlock the abundant possibilities that lie within your reach.
However, keep in mind, if you don't believe, it's unlikely you'll receive. And this is where the most beautiful part of manifestation comes into play. This is the journey of unblocking stagnant energy of false beliefs or traumas that have made you feel unworthy of what you desire. This is where you + your life transforms from the unconscious caterpillar into the mindful butterfly.
It's okay if you don't receive your intention right away, just remember in Divine Timing. Divine timing is the understanding that in your journey, the unfolding of events and outcomes occurs at the precise and perfect moment orchestrated by a higher power. And that means that you are here for a lesson, which means, you my friend, are here for a reason.
Thanks for being here + happy manifesting.
