Scrying - Crystal Gazing

Scrying is popularly known as the Art of Crystal Gazing!

It is actually the practise of seeing things through any medium, usually for divination, fortune telling or just to have a spiritual experience. The medium can be anything, most commonly a crystal ball, but also smoke, water, fire or even stones. Derived from the Old English word, descry, which meant, ‘to reveal', scrying can be dated back to ancient Egyptian civilizations.

Even though scrying has been practiced mainly by psychics, clairvoyants, and magicians, the field is open for anyone with a healthy interest and ample amounts of focus. Before you begin scrying, it is important to decide on a medium you are comfortable with; mirrors are a good option for beginners.

After deciding on the medium, you now have to relax your mind, and clear it of all distractions. Do this in a quiet place, either within your house, or anywhere where you feel relaxed and are sure not to be disturbed. To further increase concentration levels, keep lights dim, and one flashing light on, a candle will also do. Now that you are all set to begin your scrying experience, just remember that it is important to be completely comfortable and focused.

A good way to begin would be to take a few breaths and then gaze intently into your medium. Try this till you are completely absorbed with the medium and start to notice some shapes. You might not be able to make out distinct symbols right away, but remember, practise makes perfect.

While scrying, it is worthwhile to keep a record of what you are seeing. This can either be done by getting someone to write down what you are seeing, or just using a tape recorder. Decoding what you have seen can be done later in peace. Also for best results, do not try your hand at scrying for more than 20 minutes, the first few times at least.

While scrying may give you answers to your questions, or advice on future action, it is important to understand that it is not a guaranteed solution. So take it as a fun hobby and soon you might even become a professional scryer.
