HOW TO USE A CRYSTAL BALL
Steps to Reading/Scrying with a Crystal Ball
Just a quick note, a crystal ball is a sacred tool and should be treated as one. It should be used by only one person and be placed in a special place of honor when not in use. It should have a name, it will usually tell you this as you work with it, and it should be called by that name. It should have limited handling by other people, and should be carried in a special bag or box when transported from one place to another. It should also be cleansed regularly. I like to do mine on the full moon, not only because that is when the moon is at its peak of power, but also because it is easy to remember when I last cleaned it completely.
Here we go:
1. Choose a suitable crystal ball that is appropriate for the purpose; be sure to cleanse it first.
2. In a darkened room, sit quietly with the crystal ball in front of you. Allow for a low light source, so that the crystal is somewhat 'back lit" yet the rest of the room should remain dark. A candle works well, please follow safety rules when working with an open burning flame. The colour of the candle should be something that reflects higher purpose like purple for Higher Self, white for God/dess and Soul purity or orange for attraction (but be sure you say aloud that you wish to only attract positive energies or you could encounter any energy just floating by, I caution you on using orange if you are only a beginner).
3. Next close your eyes, concentrate and ground yourself. Allow your third eye to activate and open. The use of Lemuria Oil (Lemuria Oil tm exclusive from Silver Hoofs Inc) is recommended here as it clears misaligned energies and protects the user from negative energies trying to interfere with the session and so on. Place a dab on the 3rd eye area, located between your eyebrows. Now be sure to set up a deep breathing pattern at your own rhythm. Allow all the stress and negative energies to flow completely out of your body as you exhale and positive energies to enter as you inhale. "See" those positive energies replacing the exhaled negative energies, visualize all the positive energies completely centering your body and your intuition and focus becoming the central points of your thoughts.
4. Now open your eyes and choose an area/ spot on the ball you feel "drawn" to. Focus on the area/spot and allow your eyes to fixate (staring at something but your subconscious is elsewhere) and simply gaze past that spot. The crystal may begin to darken and become smoky. Allow this to happen, do not snap back to a conscious state, if you can help it; do not become concerned if this happens. In fact, most of us do, the first couple of times because we are so excited it is working! Snapping back to the conscious state makes you leave the trance state and thus breaks the psychic connection. If this happens just regain the trance state once more as best you can. Allow the ball to darken and become smoky without interrupting your trance like state. DO NOT TRY TO MAKE SENSE OF THE IMAGES YOU "SEE, FEEL OR HEAR" BEFORE YOU! Just go with the flow!
5. You may feel yourself start to tingle or vibrate, you may feel heat, cold or just detached from yourself. This is the crystal raising or lowering your vibratory level so that you may both be harmonized as one and make the needed psychic connection.
6. Next you will begin to speak (a voice recorder is useful at this point) or write about what you see. You have entered the astral plane at this point and may have some memory recall problems when you break the trance state. This may occur until you have training and can work on both the Astral and physical plane simultaneously, to be honest, this could take years of concentration, practice and many sessions, so persevere. Again, I advise using a tape recorder as it does not interfere with your focus, concentration, or gazing/scrying.
7. Finally, when you feel you have seen enough, or the crystals images fade out, allow your mind to return to the present (physical plane). Feel your vibratory rate change once again as the crystal separates from one to two separate beings again. Refocus your eyes, blink as needed and breathe deeply, as you ground yourself once more eventually returning to the physical plane, with your mind cleared and energized. In grounding yourself, a drink of water/juice and a snack can help, as you pull the earth's energies into your body once more. Remember it takes practice, so do not be upset if it does not work right away. Take your time, allow the crystal and your energies to synchronize, it will work!
