A brief history of Hopi Ear Candling
History of Hopi Ear Candling shows us that it is a very ancient and natural therapy stretching back through many civilisations when folk healers and the like from around the world used it in one form or another.
It is believed that the Ancient Greeks used ear candles, initially probably for cleansing, purifying and healing on a spiritual basis, but much later on a purely physical basis. Ear candles were used traditionally by Shaman healers, and ancient wall paintings depict them been used in rituals and healing ceremonies that illustrate the importance of these to the tribe.
Hopi Ear Candling in its present form appears to have its origins in the Indians of Native North and South America. This practice was brought back to contemporary Europe from the Native American Hopi Indians of North Arizona, the oldest Pueblo tribe, with knowledge of healing and deep spirituality.
Traditionally Hopi ear candles were used to cleanse the aura, to drive out negative energies and to enhance spiritual awareness. The Hopi ear candles are still made today on the basis of the old traditional formula originating from the Hopi Indians.
You may find it interesting to note that Hopi means peaceful people.
