I have always been fascinated, by the many different forms of divination that have been used by psychics and seers throughout the ages. Crystal gazing is something I know very little about, so thought it would be really interesting to look into it more closely, and this is what I discovered. I hope you enjoy learning about it, as much as I did.
The art of crystal gazing is an ancient one. For many people, the most popular image of a crystal gazer, is one of the Romany gypsy, gazing deeply into her crystal ball to see into the future. Crystal-gazing, also known as crystal-seeing, crystalism, crystalomancy and spheromancy) it is a form of divination or scrying, that is achieved through by the practicioner putting themselves into a trance-like state by gazing into a crystal. Though a crystal ball is often used to do this, it is by no means the only way in which it can be done. Anything which possesses a shiny surface will do.
An intensely shiny surface reflects so much light that it temporarily stuns the nerve endings of the optic nerve in your retina. This causes the eyes to perceive only the brightest surfaces within a field of vision and overlooks the rest that are darker. The effect on the seer is that it partially hypnotizes the conscious and subconscious mind, and the inner eye then assumes control, allowing the psychic images to flood in.
Crystal gazing a tool to divine the future, has been used to determine many things. Discovering hidden facts in people's lives; finding lost articles and people, even crimes have been solved. It can also be used when someone is seeking to know future events in their lives. Or to discover hidden aspects of self, or in their relationships.
How to make the crystal ball work for you
The first requirement for successful crystal gazing is to relax so thoroughly that your mind becomes a complete blank. There are many different relaxation techniques available. Find one that works best for you. Without being in a deeply relaxed state, it will be difficult to see anything in the crystal. Do not stare into the crystal without blinking. Gaze at it calmly and easily. Do not worry about whether you will see anything. Try to think, instead of what you wish to see. Think about it steadily for a while. Then allow your mind to quieten down and think of nothing. This may seem hard at first, but practice will help you.
Never sit in total darkness, but rather in a dimly lit room, with the light coming from a window or a low-voltage bulb. The light should be coming from behind you; never in front. It is best to rest the crystal on a table in a suitable cup or stand. It is also good to cover the table with a black cloth beneath the crystal. This will help you to concentrate and there will be no distractions. Ideally you should be alone and there should be no noise in the room. The slightest moving of a chair or loud breathing of another person can distract you and make complete concentration impossible.
Crystal gazing requires much practice. At first you may not succeed. In time however, you will succeed in visualizing that which you wish to see. To visualize a specific person, place or thing; picture it as you last remembered it, or as you imagine it to be. When you have this mental picture as clear as you can get it, relax completely and deeply. Cease trying to visualize anything and let your mind go blank, like a white screen before the movie starts. As you gaze into the crystal and your concentration becomes complete, after a while you will start to see the crystal becoming cloudy. It will be as if a milky cloud were forming and filling it. This is the sign that you have been waiting for, that will tell you the scrying is starting to work.
The final stage is when this cloud like formation gives way to what you are looking for. Often the picture will be startlingly clear. You will find in the crystal scenes which are meaningful to you. You may see people, houses, places, where you have never been. Words or sentences, symbols or other objects which have a meaning for you. If you are giving a reading for someone other then yourself, you should tell them only what you can see - even if it means nothing to you. Be perfectly honest. In this way you will build up skill in seeing and describing and very often the other person will supply the missing information or meaning. Remember it is important to be sensitive about what you see. Use tact and discretion. Never do or say anything that will make another person feel uncomfortable. Crystal gazing is a gift to be honoured and respected.
