Today's post addresses a little-known psychic or seance method known as flame messaging. As the name suggests, flame messaging involves the person who is seeking communication with spirits using a flame as a medium. Some people prefer this method of seance because it is easy to perform alone.
Most people start off by mediating, praying or even chanting just like at the beginning of any seance. They might have an object from a deceased loved one whom they wish to communicate with, as a way of helping make the connection.
The person then lights a candle. Some people think the color or size of the candle matters. Before beginning, the person will ask a question out loud, something they want to know from a spirit. Many wait for the candle to flicker before continuing, a sign that a spirit is present in the room. The person then holds a piece of paper above the candle's flame, but not close enough that it will combust. The smoke and heat from the flame will make a design on the paper.
This design is then studied by the person, kind of like how people will study tea leaves. The person might see the image of an object that answers a question they have, or they might see a face or something else in the pattern created by the smoke and heat . Some people repeat this process with several pieces of paper, asking new questions before using each one and receiving more complex answers to their questions.
