CREATING A PRODUCT BACKWARDS

The story of my new DAILY MANTRA candle is a little twisted (I'll be THAT grabbed your attention...). But what I mean is that instead of having an idea of what I wanted to create, I found the container FIRST and created something to fill it. What I ended up creating is this beautiful (huge) candle. Read on to find out how it went down.



2021 has certainly been the "year of the pivot." Of having to think fast and be flexible (and patient).


Supply chain woes.

Back orders.

Price increases.


I know you're feeling all this craziness, too.


Then, just when I had the candle jar situation figured out, I hit another whammy. This time with the jars for my tall Prayer Candles. You know the ones -- Ascended Masters, Goddesses, and Saints + Patrons. For the past several months until I-don't-know-when, the jars are sold out. Everywhere.


Time to do a little reverse-engineering. So, I researched candle jars that WERE available and asked Spirit to guide my creativity. A totally backwards process but, hello 2021. I'd had an idea for a candle in the back of my mind for quite a while, but it never seemed like the right time to work on it. Suddenly, the pieces clicked into place. (Don't you LOVE that feeling?)


I thought, "What if we could start our day by focusing on positive thoughts that stay with us all day?"


Or finish our day with a quiet and focused intention to support our pivots (because we all know they're not going anywhere anytime soon)?


Once I found the perfect jar, I bought a bazillion (only a slight exaggeration) and created the Daily Mantra Candle to help us create and maintain spiritual energetic focus.

Mantras are powerful affirmations (usually repeated) that can help soothe the mind, create feelings of joy and empowerment, and guide you through changes.


Each Daily Mantra Candle has affirmations printed right on the label…ideas like:


Awaken your soul.

Become your best self.

Choose happiness.

You are love(d).


Pick one of the affirmations on the label, light the candle, and focus on the energy of the words for a few minutes (or however long you have). Then intentionally carry that energy with you throughout the day.


(TIP: You don't need to light the candle if you'd rather not.)


Remember, thoughts ARE energy, so when you start the day with a positive thought (affirmation) it stays with you.


Bonus? When you combine the affirmation with scent, every time you catch a whiff it brings the energy of the intention back to you. Another layer of magic.


And what IS the scent?


Think of a wild rose growing along a path leading to the ocean. Slightly floral yet fresh. You'll find notes of mandarin, rose (of course), honey, and amber blended into something memorable. Because that's the point, right?
