Floating Candles: The life of wax

Floating candles are candles which float on water.  In the ancient traditions, small candles were placed on leaves and sent down the river to celebrate the lives of friends.  Today’s uses for floating candles are much more recreational, but we do still hold some ties to the old ways.  Here are some places where you might see floating candles.

Wedding Receptions

Weddings are such elegant events that the floating candle holders adapt with the scenery.  You might see a large shallow glass bowl as the candle holder and several candles on top, flickering and celebrating the joyous union of man and wife.  The possibilities are endless.

Upscale Restaurants

Is tingling sensation and feeling of floating supposed to occur at the start of an astral projection?

This happened when I was attempting to astral project. The only thing I am confused about is why I did not go all the way into a projection after my legs and arms were tingling and I felt like I was no longer on the bed (but in the air). It lasted maybe 30 seconds and then I opened my eyes. Perhaps I did something wrong? I want to go all the way, but it seems something isn’t allowing me to.
