Fortune Teller and Crystal Ball go together. It’s the stereotypical image of a fortune teller a woman in a headscarf, waving and placing her hands over a crystal ball conjuring images of that tall, dark, and handsome soulmate– but a crystal ball is still to this day a very useful tool to have in your intuitive psychic box. Crystal ball gazing is accessible to everyone, and although challenging at first, it’s definitely something which improves with practice.
Choosing a Crystal Ball
Most crystal balls are made of glass, but you could be surprised to know that a good crystal ball doesn’t have to be clear – you can also use a crystal ball made of amethyst, smokey quartz or any other gemstone of your choice. You might wonder, how does this work, when you’re suppose to see images in a crystal ball? Well, it works because the images you see will be in your third eye or mind’s eye, not in the crystal ball itself . The crystal ball is a tool for focusing your mind and freeing your third eye.
Choose a crystal ball which appeals to you, but make sure it’s not too small. Bigger is definitely better, as it’s easier to concentrate. When you get your first crystal ball home, it’s a good idea to gently wash it in mild soapy water, just to clean away any excess energies. From this point on, only you handle it, and store it safely away when not in use.
Setting the Scene
In order to use the crystal ball, you need a quiet space where you will not be interrupted. If you already have a space for meditation, that would be best. Some people like to set the scene by cleansing the room with a smudge sage stick first, burning incense, lighting a candle, or playing spiritual music.
Starting to Gaze
When you are ready, Relax and hold hold the crystal ball for just a moment. When you have a specific question in mind, ask it in your mind now, or ask for you to be shown whatever will be helpful to you at this time.
Then place the ball onto its stand, or onto a dark cushion or cloth. And gaze. Literally.
Gaze and stare at the ball intently. Try not to blink or to look away. Hold your gaze. If you’re good at the Magic Eye pictures, you’ll be great at crystal gazing! It may take some time, but eventually you will get the hang of it.
Remember – these images are in your mind, clairvoyant images in your third eye, not in the crystal ball itself.
Interpreting What You Saw
Most crystal ball images are symbolic. If you saw a boat, what might that mean, given your current situation? If you saw the color purple, how does that apply? If you saw a name, do you know that person? Interpreting the images can be as tricky as getting them in the first place, but trust the process and this does become easier, you will find that images come faster, and are more relevant to your question and much more simple to interpret.
