Recently I met a psychic who uses a crystal ball when doing readings.

I know that conjures up visions of gypsies and witches

and magicians

but the energies of a crystal ball are much more than that.

Crystal balls are one means of divination.

I have seen crystal balls in many sizes -

shapes - and types of crystals.

Most people prefer the clear quartz crystalline type of crystal ball - as they are shiny - and best for doing readings.

Some of these crystal balls are totally clear - while others have many inclusions which allow the viewers to see things in color spectrums - (the inclusions produce rainbows as light hits the crystal ball).

Crystal balls may also be made of any color and crystal formation.

The one chosen depends on the frequency of the person using it.

As with any crystal - the larger the crystal ball - the stronger the energies - in most cases.

A larger crystal ball will also give a larger area in which the viewer can observe whatever they need to see.

All information should be written down or tape recorded.

Choosing a Crystal Ball

As with all crystals that come into your life - crystal balls just seem to 'call to you'.

There is something in the frequency of the crystal that you chose - or that choses you - that is needed to enhance your vibration - raise it to a higher level - so you can access information more easily. Remember that all crystals are energy boosters - and are good for communication no matter what form they are in.

When a psychic chooses a crystal ball - it is no different than choosing a crystal skull - for in truth the shape really doesn't matter. It is what the crystal does for the psychic that is important.

After working with the crystal ball for a while - or just holding it - you begin to share a frequency and feel comfortable.

After the psychic decides on their crystal ball - the ball should be cleaned. I cleaned crystals with mild soap or just water - then dried them to a nice shine.

Some psychics allow anyone to touch their crystal ball - while others prefer to have no one touch it but themselves.

To begin a crystal ball reading the psychic may

  • place the crystal ball on a stand
  • place it on a table with a solid - usually dark surface
  • hold it in their hands - either in one place or turning it
  • have the person they are reading hold it with them.

    The energy of the crystal ball should open the third eye - pineal gland - and allow the viewer to see things that aren't in third dimension. There may be a sensation in the head area.

    Your eyes may appear to cross if you gaze too long in one place. In that case - relax and start again.

    How qucikly the images will appear depencds on how quickly you open you third eye.

    It is possible to see physical shapes in a crystal ball that has inclusions.

    For most people this takes time and practice. Some people never master the skill. They are usually not drawn to work with crystals - crystal balls - or crystal skulls.

    When two people can gaze into the crystal ball at the same time. They usual see different things and get different messages. It is whatever you tune into - like a radio!

    Your mind must be focused.



    Crystal ball reading is also linked to Scrying.

    Scrying is divination of distant or future events based on visions seen in a ball of rock crystal. Divination based on an analysis of reflections in water, on polished metal, or on precious stones was practiced by early humans, who probably interpreted these phenomena as a vision of the spirit world. Scrying became widespread by the 5th century AD and was condemned by the medieval Christian church as the work of the devil.

    Crystal gazing was a popular pastime in the Victorian era, together with palmistry and astrology, and it involved elaborate rituals for cleaning the crystal ball and for conducting crystal-gazing sessions, which are said to work best when the Sun is at its northernmost declination. Immediately before the appearance of a vision (which may be realistic or a mere wispy swirl), the globe is said to mist up from within.


    Interpretations of Images

    Interpreting what you see in a crystal ball is like any other form of divination or therapy.

    Colors of objects seen have meaning.

    Images in color - just as with dreams - have greater significance than those that appear in black and white.

    Shapes can be recognizable or can be archetypes of something connected to the person you are reading.

    The larger the image appears in the crystal ball - the closer the timeline for it to manifest in third dimension - and the more important the information is.

    Everything seen or heard should be recorded - on paper or by a tape machine.

    Images my be stationary - or may appear to move. They may move around the crystal as if showing a scene.

    They may look flat - two dimensional - or be holographic.

    If you connect with a crystal ball . . . take it home. If you can't 'see' anything in it at first - be patient - keep trying. At the very least it will still bring energies to the room in which it is placed.
