~ Light a Candle for Hope in the New Year ~

    On this new day in the New Year
    Blue Candle
    I light a candle for harmony and transformation
    so that past regrets, disappointments and losses no longer consume me.

    I light a candle for understanding and compassion for all of humankind
    for those who love me and for those who do not.

    I light a candle for healing and cleansing my mind, body and spirit
    so that my past no longer hides the wondrous essence of who I am.

    On this new day in the New Year
    White Candle
    I light a candle for the insight to make wise decisions,
    so that I can look to the future without regret.
    I light a candle for the ability to confidently accomplish what is possible
    and find the courage to accept whatever is beyond my control.

    I light a candle for illumination to find my way through the darkness
    and to light the way for others struggling in their own darkness.

    On this new day of the New Year
    Yellow Candle
    I light a candle for all of my hopes, wishes and dreams
    and my abiding faith in believing they will come true.
    I light a candle for empowerment and kindness
    so that my heart is filled with light, love and happiness.

    I light a candle for determination and strength
    so that I can proceed on my life’s journey
    in harmony and happiness with hope and a peaceful heart.

Kirsti A. Dyer, MD, MS

This blessing was created as part of a Holiday Ceremony for two of my dear friends to help them find hope for the New Year. It was inspired by a poem written by Francesca Lindquist "Light a Candle of Hope" at:

At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person.
Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.

Albert Schweitzer
