When lighting the candles in a pentacle, for a spell, does it matter what direction you light them in? I have heard of counter clock wise and clockwise. What does it mean?

The spell is a soul cleansing spell. It is supposed to rid your soul of negative emotions and requires a pentacle. Spells that i have read using pentacles sometimes say light the candles counter clockwise starting at 12 oclock and sometimes a see clockwise as well. Im confused....

The Clockwise and counter-clockwise meanings are very simple to understand.

If you have non-digital clock or watch, you can follow the minute hands constant movements, it always moves in one direction all of the time from 12 to 1 to 2 to 3 and so on. That would be called Clockwise, counter-clockwise is the complete opposite with the minute hand movements going from 12 to 11 to 10 to 9 to 8 ect.

Look it up on the internet if you are still confused.

This is correct. Most people either start East or North. It doesn't matter but keep it in a fluid direction. Don't jump from North to South or East to West etc.

How clockwise/counter clockwise translates to casting is:

For clockwise:
If you are starting facing East, you go East, South, West, North

If you are starting facing North, you go North, East, South, West

For Counter clockwise it is the opposite:
If you start facing East, it's East, North, West, South

If you start facing North, it's North, West, South, East

It depends on exactly what the spell instructions are, whether you are casting a circle as well performing the spell, etc. Generally, in opening a circle you will light candles and move clockwise, closing you will extinguish and move counter-clockwise. Likewise if the spell is to draw something to you go clockwise and if it is to banish from you go counter-clockwise.

counterclockwise is also called "widdershins"

Tiredofgaggs is spot on as usual.

The spell is too banish negative emotions from you. Not exactly take them away completely. Our emotions make us human. But to make it so these emotions won't be as strong and such a weight on our souls. And thank you this helps.

I would suggest meditation for these sorts of spells. All you need is a quiet place, a bed and a clear idea of what feelings you want to banish and what feelings you want to conquer you. It's very simple.

A pentacle and candles might do, but is too... spontaneous and you won't be able to practice it everywhere... Mediation also helps you strengthen will and self-control. In a certain sense, it helps you cleanse yourself at any place at any time without much expenses or preparation.
