Self inflicted torment? Sure -it worked for Joseph to focus his mind and desire...but, the only way?
Since you yourself are a self-admitted Catholic, I'm sure you realize the Catholic practice of the Sacrament where the participants eat the Wafer. That wafer has been specially consecrated. This is all part of that Ritual which is necessary for holy communion.
Based on that ceremony, you can see my point about the necessity for Rituals.
Another Catholic practice is the Novena during which Fasting is done. Depending on the harshness of that Fasting, it can be done to the degree where it becomes self-inflicted torment of the kind practiced by Saint Joseph. So, as you can see, in your own self-admitted Catholicism, there are certain rituals/disciplines to be practiced--with all due respect to you, Miss Hepburn.

Hi Cribbage, couple things I should clarify, I'm an ex-Catholic.
I like Catholics, but not their Church.

And putting on my Mod hat ---the Administration here has
asked that when we quote other members that we shorten the quote to 2-3
sentences...I think adding the post # helps.

Prepare yourself for the coming astral journey of death by daily riding in the balloon of God-perception.
Through delusion you are perceiving yourself as a bundle of flesh and bones, which at best is a nest of troubles.
Meditate unceasingly, that you may quickly behold yourself as the Infinite Essence, free from every form of misery. ~Paramahansa's Guru's Guru

Here I go poking my spoke in again but hopefully in a positive way.
Firstly, and I apologise, but I have no knowledge at all if this "method" you speak of. In fact I've never heard of it !
But I just feel like I wanted to say can you not meditate and manifest with ANY candle ??
In fact , do you even need a candle to meditate or manifest .
I have done both over time but never used a candle.

In order to manifest I did meditate and above all else my main findings and beliefs were this.

See whatever you are manifesting as already there .
And then believe it.
In believing it you eliminate the fear .

Sorry if I sound ignorant to the facts of the method you prefer .

I can only add a caution to this Yes I have heard of candle burning ,
but putting oils near a flame is dangerous in its self,

I used to read a magazine it is a Spiritual magazine and there is a section in it which used candles as a manifestation.


Namaste

Yes, I meditate too, because of my Buddhism. In that way, Buddhism is intertwined with manifestation, for me.
You said that you manifest without using candles. At the risk of sounding presumptuous, you may have used candles in your previous reincarnation. But you progressed to the point that you don't need candles. Consequently, when you reincarnated into your present life, you don't need candles.
In my case, in my present incarnation, I need those candles, so I use them. The problem is that somebody else made those candles for me-- the lady at that metaphysics shop. But now both her and the shop are gone, so I am left in the lurch. This is what began the introduction of this thread in the first place.
