The Art Of Scrying
Scrying is more involved and technical than it at first seems.
the art of scrying, there are various methods, mediums and types of
scrying involved. It is a type of psychic skill that is no longer
particularly used. Most psychics in modern times are either Mediums or
Clairvoyants (or both). When you go for a reading, there may be a
crystal ball sitting on a table for decoration, but the psychic will
read using cards, taking an object and holding it for first
impressions, or merely tuning into your energy. With the advent of
skype and email readings, most modern
psychics are proficient reading at a distance and don't need a lot
of tools. However old fashioned scrying is interesting in terms of
seeing what the ancient psychics did before better methods evolved.
Perhaps one reason why scrying is rarely practiced is that it is
a form of trance reading and trance mediumship. Yet a trance is never
necessary to bring through information clairvoyantly. Scrying was probably a place for psychics to start, being
fashionable in a bygone era. Perhaps they needed to convince onlookers that the images they saw were inside
their ball or mirror, when in fact scrying is about invoking the inner eye to see clairvoyantly in the mind's eye.
Every psychic, no matter the psychic sense used, needs to focus on
something initially in order to "connect". Some may take the hands of
the client, others tune in whilst their hands are busy laying out their
cards. For myself, I learned to tune into the clients' questions and
concerns to connect that way. What scryers do is to specifically look
deep into their crystal ball and tune in this way, or tune OUT into a
trance as the case may be. They would use the ball to induce or allow
fall into a semi-trance or trance state. It is said they then see
images in the ball, but it is their own mind's eye that
captures images sent to them from spirit.
There has always been a lot
of mystery around crystal balls, yet scryers are simply using
clairvoyance and inner vision. If a scryer is not psychic and not
clairvoyant, they may merely see shapes inside the ball, like we see
shapes in the clouds, and read this way.
Tools Of Scrying
1. Quartz crystal and crystal balls, both clear or black, are always popular.
2. Others don't fuss about using a ball but use a Polished Stone
(i.e. obsidian) that they lay out on a table before them. It must
be big enough but doesn't need to be overly large. A modest piece of
dark, reflective stone will do.
3. Ordinary Glass has been used for scrying due to its reflective quality.
4. Water is another popular scrying tool when placed into a dark bowl.
Picture Galadriel from The Lord Of The Rings and her pool of
water that she used for scrying; a perfect example of water scrying.
5. Oil in a bowl has also been used.
6. A Mirror is a common and perhaps the most easily available tool.
In the past women would have small hand mirrors and something like this
was easy to use. Also, a mirror can be any reflective surface or object. In ancient times
they did not possess the mirrors we use today, so for a mirror they
used any polished metal like silver or brass.
History Of Scrying
Scrying has been around for thousands of years, beginning in China in
around 3000 BC, in
ancient Egypt as far back as 2500 BC. Also ancient Greeks (2000 BC),
Romans and Celts practiced this art. Early scrying was not an attempt
to speak to spirit or angels, but to try to glimpse future scenarios.
Today's psychics will do both simultaneously. It was perhaps a bit hit
or miss depending on the psychic level of the seer (how open their
psychic centers are). Since this all occurred before a little thing
called science evolved, it was not approached scientifically, or
probably very sensibly. Image the power the so called seers had when
Kings consulted them over weighty issues of war. The Kings would have
probably had a more accurate reading if they read their own Tarot.
Scrying did however add mystery to life and might still have the power
to make us shiver were we to see someone trance out over a crystal ball.
Scrying vs The Clair Senses?
If you are going to try scrying, say a prayer of protection first. This
is because spirits will hear your intent to connect to the other side
and unfriendly spirits may wish to come through, or take an
interest in you. I would not personally play with this kind of thing in
order to get information. It is much easier to safely develop yourself
clairvoyantly or clairaudiently, and you will get much faster, clearer
and perfect information with practice. Scrying is pretty piece meal,
you may receive tiny impressions about nothing at all relevant. There
are reasons why we no longer use this method.
