One prominent feature of all of our Wizard & Grace candles is a celtic knot on each label and box. The knot on the candle label becomes more prominent as you burn your candle down, allowing you to focus and meditate on the Celtic knot. Each knot has been carefully selected depending on the theme and intention of your candle.
Celtic knots are familiar to most people in Ireland – they are adorned throughout our land and religious buildings, our government buildings and information and are weaved into visuals throughout our daily life. Celtic knots and mandals are based on the concept of sacred geometry.
Sacred geometry refers to the universal patterns with which nature aligns and structures itself. From the molecules of our DNA, the cornea of our eyes to the structure of the universe to snowflake and flower patterns, many forms and patterns observed in nature can be related to geometry. Natural geometrical shapes and sequences of shapes are shared by lots of living and non living things. The “sacred” part is a belief that these patterns, their mathematical formulas, and their structure are evidence of divine planning and creation.
Sacred geometry is considered to amplify our our connection to spirit, and creates harmony within ourselves, and between ourselves and the outside world. Sacred Geometry is present in all of the major spiritual traditions: in Judaism's Sephirot or Tree of Life, in China's Yin Yang and I Ching, and in the Mayan pyramids and the in the Celtic's Book of Kells.
Celtic Knots rooted in nature
Celtic knots are a form of sacred geometry that symbolize the interconnectedness of all things. They represent the eternal web and the continuous cycling of existence. Celtic knots are particularly grounded in nature and the wild beauty of the Irish landscape. The Celts saw the earth as a deity, their mother goddess, filled with mystery and populated by gods and goddesses residing in springs, rivers, wells and caves.
Celtic knots often described as Celtic mandalas can be used in a meditation practice to connect to a higher state of awareness and to raise your consciousness.
Wizard & Grace Intention Candles feature celtic knots on our intention candles both for symbolic and practical purposes. Focusing on the celtic knot, carefully selected to support the intention of the candle, can assist you to clear your mind and strengthen your connection with the value you want to embody and wider nature.
