I want to thank all the fears that I faced. I want to thank those who threw rocks, for they built my empire. I want to thank those who put obstacles in my way, for they were my stepping-stones. I am thankful for the cages, for they taught me what inner freedom is. I am thankful to the darkness, or I wouldn't have known the light. I am thankful for the time that was lost, the attention that was monopolized, the energy that was drained, the psychic attacks, and all that was meant to break or destroy me. Because it has all brought me here. All of my steps have been carefully orchestrated by Spirit. All that was thrown at me, my Guides have used it as material to teach me. I see you. But even more importantly, I see me. And I am right here and now, exactly where I am meant to be. I have traveled far to find me, and there are miles to go. - Sherry Scott
This is a deep healing and repair specialty figural candle inspired by the Japanese art of Kintsugi, repairing broken objects with gold. These candles are created by a master candle maker exclusively for the Barefoot Witchery Shoppe. You can only find them here, and they are made by hand through a very involved and painstaking process.
These candles are not available wholesale and cannot be purchased with discounts. They take a lot of time and expense to make, and quantities are limited, as these take time to restock. These candles are unscented and are not fixed, loaded, or otherwise prepared for ritual work. We recommend you inscribing, dedicating, and blessing them yourself for your own purposes and ritual use. We recommend dressing them with our Kintsugi oil.
This concept is about restoration of what was lost. Repair of what was damaged. Being true to your own self and aspiring to your own expectations and no one else's. This is about getting yourself to a place you can live with and function. It is about remodeling, dusting out the cobwebs, and the realization of becoming whole and complete.
It is about learning to rely on your guides and your intuition, and learning to discern and stop believing voices that tell you lies.
Moreover, it is about learning to rely on yourself, trust yourself, and realize you are worthy.
Triumph through (not over or around, but through) adversity. Success through limitations, acknowledging the fears and facing them.
You don't have to be perfect to achieve your goals. It's probably best that you aren't.
Nobody achieves great things by doing easy things and living in the sunshine and flowers all the time.
You are refined by fire and by your repair. You can do hard things.
I have also traveled my own difficult path and have worked hard to be able to share what I have learned with you. So, before purchasing this product or any of the beautiful kintsugi candles or services, please read my blog post which delves much deeper and darker into this healing and repair process and how it can help you on your level. This is some down in the dirt and the mud, rock bottom, ground zero, hardcore stuff.
So, while I cannot require you to read more about it before purchase, I am convinced you will find it enlightening and beneficial and that it will make your experience and your journey more enriching.
No two candles are identical. They are perfect in their variations, as we all are. Your candle will come carefully wrapped for safe shipping, packaged in a cello bag embellished with green tassel. If you wish to purchase shipping insurance in case of accidental brackage in transit, email me ahead of time to arrange extra payment for USPS insurance on your package. We cannot guarantee these will arrive safely if shipped internationally, and temperature in your reagion or along the way can damage them.
