Can a candle be relit while dreaming of a deceased parent?
« on: February 25, 2021, 06:54:44 pm »
Hi

I am completely knew to this, so please forgive any ignorance. I'm hoping for an opinion or advice on something that happened this morning.

Last night, maybe 8 or 9 pm, I noticed my usual candle was burning out - the wick had burnt down to the end as usually would happen with a well used candle (you know that 2mm tiny blue flame?). I'm pretty sure I blew it out, but could have possibly just thought to let it burn out by itself. I went to bed around midnight and I'm almost certain it had been out for a while.

When I got up this morning, around 9am, the candle was burning with a full flame. I was confused, blew it out per instinct and went about my morning meeting. I made the comment to my partner that we had been 'visited' in the night, I have always believed in something, I was just never quite sure what. It wasn't until I spoke with my friend about it, I made the connection that I dreamt about my dad, who passed away in November. In my dream he was as I remembered him as a child, younger and full of health.

I can't help but feel like the two may be connected, could it be that there was more to it than an odd occurrence of a bog-standard candle managing to relight it's flame? Or am I trying to find something that isn't there?

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. If you've made it this far, thank you for reading. I wish you have a pleasant day. :)

First, hi and welcome,

Personally I'm inclined to believe that it's something more. I've no strong reason for saying this other than, how you explained it, it feels right to me.
The most important thing is how it feels to you.
I wouldn't read any direct purpose into it ( it sounds like a comforting visit really ) but would certainly find comfort in having had it.

First, hi and welcome,


Please note that the above was just my personal opinion though based on very limited skill and knowledge
