During the last full moon, I was doing my usual intention work. I had bought beautiful new green glass candle holders in the shape of 2" cubes. I have a new kitten at home and wanted something heavier and sturdier than I was using in the past, and these seem to fit the bill and I loved the look of them.
However, when the candles burned down the next morning, 2 out of 3 of the candle holders and broken cleanly in half! The third was cracked but not broken yet.
First, I took this as a physics/science related fault of the candle holders - not tempered glass or faulty design. I wonder if there is some kind of insulation I can use with the candle holder... water? sand? some other medium that will help alleviate the heat to the glass? Or should I snuff out the candles before they burn down completely so that there is no wax left?
Second, as far as the intention goes, it may indicate 1) the work is complete or has been heard, 2) an amplification of the intention, 3) the intention is rendered null, or 4) the intention was reversed completely.
What are your thoughts on these two areas? The practical part of burning a taper in a glass candle holder, and then the meaning of the breaking and how it affects the intention.
