Tales From The Candles
A short story from past Candle Events
There have been some interesting things that have happened at candle events over the years. I always told my candle supplier about them. To tell the truth, she was always skeptical. But then I started taking pics. It was pretty hysterical to watch the look on her face.
One of my favorite stories: It was a winter night and I went to bed at 10:00 pm. 3 candles safely burning in the fireplace, I was totally exhausted from the day's events.
I woke up with a jolt at 11:00 pm to hear what sounded like Polish Polka music. The secluded retreat center had recently put up lights and cameras due to people breaking in. My first thought was that someone had broken in and was outside. I was in a cabin in the side of the hill. A bit isolated from the main passageways.
I grabbed my phone and pepper spray and sprung into action. Nothing was there. I listened but there was nothing but the usual sounds of nature outside. I listened and the music was still playing. Then I realized I wasn't hearing it with my "regular" ears - my spirit ears were picking it up.
I followed it to the fireplace. Sure enough, one of the candles was doing it. So I asked very loudly "Alright, which one of you is playing the music?" The Immunity Candle popped and flickered with delight. This blend, new to me and the Events, seemed to be working on levels other than physical. "Just do it quieter. I have to sleep." I grumpily told it as I headed back to bed. The music got softer. I got woken up once more at about 3:00 am. I just yelled "Quieter!" and the music got softer.
This is why I do this work alone. Very thankful that no one can hear me yelling at candles in the middle of the night!
