Seeing Visions From Flames


One day while I was staring at a candle flame, I closed my eyes and still saw the shape of the flame but it soon started to change shape and move around in the blackness of my closed eyes. It later formed into the silhouette of a man who had a wide-brimmed hat on and wore a cape-like trench coat. He grabbed his cape, wrapped it around him, and then vanished. I have no clue what it could mean but the story doesn't end there. About a week or so later, I did the same thing yet a woman came into my sight, though it wasn't a silhouette like it was the last time. She wore a cloche hat (like the kind that women wore in the 1920's), and what looked like a light, pale-pink outfit but her skirt looked more brown now that I think of it. I saw her at a distance from a side view and it looked like she was waiting on something, like she was at a bus stop and I could've sworn she was holding what looked like a small suitcase or a purse. Then she just slowly faded away out of sight.

Later on, I was reading some stories about people's visions and what they saw and I read that spirits are attracted to fire (why? I have no clue). It got me thinking, "What if what I'm seeing are actually sprits?" I later decided I wanted to do it again and so I did. It took a while but the shape of the flame finally started to change and took shape of an angel (it looked like a rough wooden carving of one). Does this make any sense at all? What do you think?

Your story sounds like you are seeing what I see. I haven't tried the candle thing, I just try and relax and sometimes I get images. Usually people, sometimes other things. I have communicated with another person on this site who does the same thing but more so, and has other psychic abilities. I seem to be seeing less and less and have thought about using a candle much as you describe. I have read that staring at a candle then covering your eyes and looking at the candle flame in your minds eye is a way of opening the third eye and improving psychic ability. I have no idea why I see the images and can figure nothing good about it, except it's kind of cool sometimes. You can look up clairvoyance and remote viewing and see what you think. Some people say they communicate with their guides through images and symbols. I'd like to know what you find out if your so inclined. My story is Seeing Faces.

I agree with PathR. There are many types of scrying - but the one that you seem to be doing is one of the elemental scrying. There's earth (looking into a crystal), water (looking into a bowl of water, pond, or anything with running water), and fire (looking into a flame or a hearth). I'm not sure if there's one for air. But anyway, it seems that maybe ghosts are trying to communicate with you via fire. Perhaps they're ghosts of your own home? Or in your city area? I would try to talk to the people to see in the flame, or maybe try asking the flame why you get these visions (sometimes the element will form a clear answer, or it will pop up in your head). Good luck!

eagleguy19 reading the flame is scrying.
It would be better to ground and protect and bring in your helper before beginning.
