Crystal Balls & Scrying Mirrors
Crystal Balls and Scrying Mirrors are two popular divination tools to use for divination. If the medium is a crystal ball or scrying mirror, the visions may come from the tiny inclusions, web-like faults, or the cloudy glow within the crystal ball or reflective surface or the scrying mirror under low light (e.g. candlelight). Once this stage is achieved, the scryer begins a free association with the perceived images suggested. The technique of deliberately looking for and declaring these initial images aloud, however trivial or irrelevant they may seem to the conscious mind, is done with the intent of deepening the trance state, wherein the scryer hears their own disassociated voice affirming what is seen within the concentrated state in a kind of feedback loop. This process culminates in the achievement of a final and desired end stage in which rich visual images and dramatic stories seem to be projected within the medium itself, or directly within the mind’s eye of the scryer, like an inner movie. This overall process reputedly allows the scryer to “see” relevant events or images within the chosen medium.
