Religion & Spirituality:Spirituality
Jan goes solo in this episode to share the growing world-wide tradition of Väntljusstaken/Sunwait Candle lighting. This is a revitalizing of the advent wreath candles with a Heathen/Pagan purpose to help bring in the Yule time.
The Sunwait candleholder has six candles to be lit the six Thursdays (or fridays/other day of the week, or even the 5 days prior to Yule) leading up to the winter solstice. Any six-armed candleholder will do, and you decorate it as you wish. Many use the first runes of the Futhark to mark the candles and manifest their runic power for the meditation and into the coming season/year.
There is a poem to go with the lighting of each candle here in English, but also on the website in Swedish, French, German and Dutch.
Post photos of your candles and your experiences setting the intentions during this on Gifts of the Wyrd Facebook group and @Väntljusstaken Facebook page.
Check back to for a possible addition of the Swedish version of the poem.
