Dealing with Grief: Light a Candle
Lighting a candle is a symbolic form of love's light continuing. You can use a white candle to show a spiritual aspect or one that is your loved one's favorite color. Candles come in many scents that can remind you of the one you lost. Essential oils come in all kinds of aromas. You can place a few drops on the candle that releases the scent as it burns. You can place the candle in the window or by a special chair. Light it every night or only when you are thinking about your lost one. It can be a little light in a dark place in your life for a period of time.
