Candle wax curling as it melts??

My aunt in Korea nonchalantly mentioned she used to be 'gifted' long before she converted from buddhism to catholicism. She no longer 'senses' and 'knows' things. However, i think this curling candle wax is related to her supposedly 'gone' gift.

She said she lights up the candle and prays to God as she does her daily chores or routines.

Any idea what this means???

Hm, we wouldn't know. The pattern can be a representation that is very personal to her. To me, it looks like a 'spiral' or 'curling' motion. I would ask her to think about what the spiral symbolism means to her.

Hi thx for reply. So this curling wax isnt a common phenomena im guessing..? As you can see the photo, some curls in two different directions. Hmm i guess ill ask her my next visit to korea (and idk when).

Spiral growth curve. It really is lovely.

Do this happen wherever in the house she lights the candle?

Not sure. I think her candles are only placed by that altar of mary and jesus figure

So cool, I had one that did the same thing but the curl is split in half, I have no idea what it means.
