Candle light meditation is open-eye mediation (yes, it exists^^).
With this style of meditation, you stare at the candle flame while meditating.
For many trying to practice meditation, it is easier to focus on a physical object.

- Switch off bright lights
- Cover the windows
- Ensure the room is at ambient temperature
2. The, it’s finally time to light your meditation candle!
3. Sit at around 50 cm from the candle and position the candle at eye-level.
You have to be comfortable when looking at the candle flame. Do it in a chair, or cross-legged, in front of the candle.
4. Start gazing at the flame. Let the image of the candle fill your mind.
Keep your gaze fixed till you achieve a state of calmness. While staring at the candle, breathe in and breathe out.
You will slowly find yourself getting into a state of concentration and peace. That’s where the meditation starts.
What are the benefits Of Candle Light Meditation

When your eyes are fixed on the candle flame, they don’t see anything beyond it.
Your brain does not receive any new information to process as it is the nerves of your eyes that send signals to your brain.
Images beside the candle fade away from your vision and while your eyes are open, you only see the candle flame.
