It is easy to think that the crystal ball is just a load of hocus pocus, it is after all one of the biggest stereotypes in the arsenal of the fairground fortune teller. But just because there are a few (okay a lot) of con artists out there that have commandeered the item to fool whoever’s fortunes they are predicting doesn’t mean that you should rule out this old favourite. As you may know crystals store and give out energy, the crystal ball is spherical so that it can give out energy in all directions, therefore it is a handy addition to the psychic toolbelt. Using that crystal ball however cannot be done instantly, it takes time and practise to master it, so here are few tips to get you started.
The act of scrying or gazing into your crystal ball cannot just be done anywhere, you’ll want to find somewhere quiet where you can work uninterrupted and feel comfortable too, think along the lines of somewhere you might meditate. For those getting started, the ideal room should be dimly lit, try drawing your curtains and maybe lighting a few candles or using a dim lamp. This should help to lower the amount of reflections on the ball and allow you to concentrate completely. Some people even like to perform a cleansing ritual by using a smudge stick or lighting incense too but it is entirely up to you how you set the scene.
Now comes the hard part, remember this will take some getting used to so take your time and don’t put any pressure on yourself, patience as always is a virtue. Hold the crystal ball and relax, give yourself a moment to feel completely comfortable and if there’s a specific question in mind now is the time to ask it, either aloud or in your head. Take the ball and place it either on a stand or if not onto a dark cushion or cloth and then simply gaze into it. This is the important part, master your gaze, you must do so intently so that means trying not to blink and focusing on the ball, don’t look away. You may find that your eyes become unfocused, that’s fine, actually that can be a good thing, much like focusing on those strange Magic Eye pictures.
Once you have mastered your gaze you should start to see what looks like a strange mist form either within or over the ball, don’t break your focus, once this mist clears, you’ll begin to see your visions, the very reason you’re using this device. These images will come to you in your head, it may seem as if they are in the ball itself but this is actually your third eye at work. As the visions come to you, you may be tempted to try and interpret them, don’t. Simply focus on your gaze until they pass, you will remember the most important of them and then you can get to unravelling just what you’ve seen with your new found skill.
