Here is a great post I wrote in regards to “Scrying” meaning reading a crystal ball. I have put it into video form, but also underneath there is a written version.
Here is the post to read other than in a video if you wish.
Using a Crystal Ball
What you think of when you think of a crystal ball? Most people think of a gypsy staring into a crystal ball to tell futures. It’s the cliché that persists. Because of this, the idea of using a crystal ball is not well understood by many.
What is a crystal ball and how can you use it?
While still used by stage magicians and mentalists in their acts, crystal balls are also used by many to help them while scrying. Scrying has long been used as a way to see or to help focus images of knowledge that can be used in decision-making. This is why crystal balls have long been associated with gypsies and fortune-telling. There are other ways to scry including using the reflective surface of water but this article will focus on using a crystal ball.
Crystal balls can be made either with glass or quartz. Quartz is the preferred material for a crystal ball for most as it focuses energy better than glass. Quartz has wonderful vibration properties that allow it to resonate with your energy in the energy around you to put everything in harmony. This is necessary to be able to scry.
The reason crystal balls are spherical is because the round shape doesn’t have any dead ends to get stuck in. Energy can freely enter and leave the crystal ball.
Your crystal ball should be treated with reverence and respect. It is not a toy should be placed in a safe spot when not in use and covered. It is also important that you not let others touch the crystal ball; this allows the crystal ball to become attuned to your energy and only your energy.
Cleansing Your Crystal Ball
It is important that you cleanse your crystal ball before each use. Moonlight is also important, it will help both cleanse and to charge your crystal ball. At night, when the moon is out, take a bowl of distilled water and add a pinch of sea salt and lower the ball into the water.
Let it sit in the moonlight for half an hour and then you can dry off and use or store it if you are just cleansing after use. Even if you have not used it, let it sit out in the moons rays whenever the moon is full so the ball is cleansed and energised.
Using Your Crystal Ball
When you are ready to use your crystal ball, you should use a room that is dim. Instead of using lights, use a candle behind you to give yourself some light. If you need to use a light, use a light that is behind you, so that you are between it and the crystal ball. The less light that hits the crystal ball, the better your “seeing” session with it will be.
If you have a stand, place your crystal ball on the stand in front of you. If you do not have a stand, then place it on a piece of folded silk or a cushion that will allow it to sit safely.
Clear your mind and prepare yourself to use the crystal ball. Allow yourself to relax and be open to what you may see and shed yourself of any negative energy.
Some people like to place their hands on the crystal ball to help focus their energy on it. This is especially good for beginners who are learning to direct their focus and to open themselves up to receiving images from the crystal.
Gently place your hands on the crystal ball and focus on what question you want to see. For those just starting out, you will find it easier to use the crystal ball by having a question in mind.
Experienced users will be able to focus without touching the ball, just by letting their eyes focus on an area of the ball’s surface that naturally seems to draw their eye. Experienced users can also use the ball to open themselves up to seeing without a specific question in mind. It can take years of use to be able to do that, so if you try to see without asking a specific question, or just by focusing on the ball without touching it first, do not worry.
You only need to touch the ball for the first few minutes. This helps attune the quartz to you and provides a stronger link between you and the ball. Ask the question that you are looking for answers for, either out loud or just ask the ball silently, without speaking.
After a few minutes, you can take your hands off of the ball and then focus on the crystal ball. Find the spot on the ball that draws your eye t and look into the crystal. Try to relax and allow your eyes to become slightly unfocused, all without moving your gaze from that same spot. The ball will fill with a smoke or a mist and within it, you will see images.
Allow the images to form; one will form and then fade or transform into another image. Allow this to happen, no matter what you see. Keep in mind, the answers you get may not be what you wanted or what you expected. When the images are done, the mist will fade from the crystal ball and the scrying session is now over.
You can write, or sketch out the images so you can go over them later. Do not try to interpret them while they are being shown to you, allow them to come and go, until there are no more to see.
When you are done, return the ball to its place, keeping it covered, in a safe, dark spot.
If you do not see anything, be patient. Try again later. Sometimes, there may be times where there is nothing to show.
This is something that does take time and practice but you can get useful guidance from scrying by using a crystal ball.
