Absolutely you can! Or you can get electric or battery-operated candles as substitutes. White can be substituted for any color candle too.

Sure. You can buy some really pretty flameless candles out there now. Or find something else that represents fire to you. It’s all good to go!

My local metaphysical store sells battery powered flameless candles for this exact purpose. :slightly_smiling_face:

Yes, BTW, have you thought of LED candles? Having candles are not necessary. All you really need is yourself :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Yes! My travel altar consists of LED candles and items that represents the elements instead of candles for when I need to call the quarters. I also use LED candles for my quarters at home because my cats will catch their tails on fire otherwise.

A post was split to a new topic: What is the best way to set up a Travel Altar

Greetings @Nikita-mikaelson!

I can see you’ve already got some great advice here- I second the battery-powered flicker candles :candle::+1: I was a bit hesitant about them at first and no, they aren’t the same as actual fire, but they travel great and add that atmospheric element to anxiety spells and meditations that really helps me a lot, especially when I’m traveling :airplane::baggage_claim: They come in all different shapes, sizes, and types- I’m sure you can find some that work for you!

There were also some other great suggestions shared in this Candle Replacement discussion that may help you get more ideas.

Good luck and blessed be! :sparkles:

I totally agree with Siofra, you can get battery operated tea candles.
