Lighting a candle is a gesture of spirituality around the world. Take a moment to think about your intentions for lighting a virtual candle: saying a prayer, honouring your loved ones who have passed away, in solidarity with a cause, a promise, a personal intention or to congratulate a friend.

It is necessary to always walk with the windows of the mind wide open in order to let the air refresh our soul.
