Hi all,

Just wondered if anyone has ever used one and what results you got? Also, do you have any advice for first time gazers?

Many thanks,
S xxx

Some people "scry" with mirrors or just a bowl of dark ink added to water.

Hey Cardinalgal

Have you tried it as yet? I've not used a crystal ball, although I did post a question ages ago on a crystal thread in FFA. I think you just clear your mind an interpret the images and/or thoughts as they appear.

That's what I would do anyhow. When you have an unclear answer, just try again another time.

Or.. as Randall says, use glass or inky water - not inky water that has 'bound' to much though since you may not see things as clearly. Some people use tea leaves in a similar way. An aquired skill though I would have thought. Establishing the symbols you see to the meanings is all down to your own interpretation which could take some time.

Good luck

Thanks ever so much to both of you for your replys. I'll give the water and ink a go as that sounds interesting, but I've just treated myself to a crystal ball and haven't tried it as yet. Reason I bought it mainly because I've noticed that I seem to "see" things when I drift off into staring into middle distance (day dreams I suppose) but they often produce the most extraordinary results! I've had entire conversations with people in my day-dream that have then come to pass a while later, exactly as they were played out in my head.

I've also had lexigrams come to me and I find that same 'trance-like' state occurs when I look at certain words; so all in all, I thought it would be a good idea to try crystal gazing and see if I could produce the same results from that, or perhaps visions with even more depth?

I'll keep you posted on my progress

Thanks so much once again! xx

Hey sweetie,
What you experience sounds very interesting! I can sense what you mean because I get a similar kind of 'spiralling' open channelling when I'm very relaxed - on the border of sleep for example.

Yes, do keep us posted on your progress!

I'm happy you have got a ball, we can share experiences when I eventually get one

Put black india ink in a bowl of water and unfocus your eyes (like when you look at those hidden picture posters to see the 3-D image) as you say, "Mirror mirror, scry for me. Show me what I want to see."

When I was about 5, I would watch the swirlies that the bubblebath created in the bathtub and pretend I could see my future in the water. Later I found out I was actually attempting "scrying".
