Crystal balls have been used for scrying for over thousands of years. Scrying is an art in all senses. To scry means one looks into a reflective surface (glass, water, mirror, or crystal) in order to gain mystical insight. Most people have heard stories or even seen gypsy fortune tellers gazing into crystal balls and presenting their clients with a divine future. Along with this people have concluded the misconception that crystal balls contain the magic which enables the fortune teller to see the future, but it is not accurate. The ball does not posses magical powers. The images seen in a crystal ball do not foresee the future, but rather are images from deep inside one’s subconscious mind. The crystal ball is merely a door through which these subconscious thoughts can be seen and recognized. When someone is using a crystal ball a trance-like state is produced in order to separate one’s conscious mind from the unconscious. This enables information from the subconscious to pass through the visual mental imagery otherwise known as the mind’s eye. It is in the mind’s eye one is able to see images not in the crystal ball itself. Their is no magic in crystal ball readings, but simply being in touch with one’s inner self and knowing how to empty the mind and focus soley on whatever one wishes to seek and understand.
Most crystal balls are clear and made of glass, lead crystal, reconstitutes quartz, or natural quartz. Clear quartz is the most common crystal used for scrying because it is famous for its fortune telling properties. It opens the 3rd eye and crown chakras, which enhances clairvoyant and medium abilities. Smoky quartz, amethyst, beryl, and obsidian are also commonly used. Each crystal ball has its own energy. A crystal ball is a very personal object. When seeking out a psychic who performs such an art they will not ask of you to touch the crystal ball simply because crystal balls contain one’s energy and subconscious thoughts. When passing others energy and subconscious thoughts it is said to “contaminate” the ball and create inaccurate readings. Also a ball may lose its charge or personal influences with in it may become weakened or corrupted. Crystal balls should be wrapped in dark cloth or kept in a light proof box in order to keep the ball safe and away from being touched by others. The psychic and their ball create a special bond, which should not be interrupted by another. Another interesting thing about crystal balls is that they must be naturally charged in order to provide accurate readings. To charge a crystal ball it must be placed in light of a full moon for several nights. The reason for doing this is because this is when light is at its strongest. Crystal balls can never be placed in direct sunlight due to weakening the balls magnetism.
What To Know About Crystal Ball Readings
When getting a crystal ball reading it is best to have it done in a room where you will not be disturbed. This creates a relaxed atmosphere. Lighting candles or playing soft music can also help create this tone. Dim lighting relaxes the eyes making it easier for the psychic to focus on the ball and the images the magnetism brings off. It is important to relax your mind and body because this is the key to using many psychic abilities others then crystal gazing. The psychic will then hold the ball within their hands to energize it, strengthening the bond between them self and their crystal, and then will visualize on a topic or question in mind. After they will set the crystal ball down and begin to gaze into. Clearing your mind and concentrating on feeling open and receptive is what helps the psychic see what needs to be seen. At first mist will begin to fill the crystal ball and then will gradually clear. Right after the mist disappears symbols or images will begin to come naturally. Psychics will typically not state what they are seeing until they are able to put pieces of the puzzle together because things are not always what they appear to be right away. Time and patience is needed for this process to be accurate. Images are often symbolic and it make take time to decipher their meaning. When scrying it is important to go with your instinct and intuition because it will guide you. Most often your first impression is the correct one. The reader will usually dress their table and themselves according to the theme of your event. These readings can be quick and to the point, or long and drawn out because readings vary from person to person. Usually 10 minutes is the approximate time a reading takes. You can recieve a reading alone or as a group. In group cases the guests will circle around the table in order to create a relaxing atmosphere. Depending on the reader you may get in depth information on situations that need to be brought to your attention, or the information received may be straight forward or cryptic.
Crystal scrying can give off information on events in your life that have taken place, are taking place, or will be taking place (past, present, and future events). In reference to the past it may be a reminder that you have an aspect of a time behind you that needs to be cleared up for growth and development. Information on past lives or even family members that may come into perspective in this life may be attainable. Readers all have different abilities on what they are able to see. Their is no harm in asking a reader what they are able to see whether it is actual situations, symbols, colors, or images. Reading crystal balls for too long can cause headaches and nausea. The crystal ball as a reading is given after attachment has been made with a client, so that the psychic can then easily connect with the energies of both the client and their crystal.
