Train your mind to see useful images through a crystal ball
Friday, August 12th, 2011 2:18 PM
You don't need to buy yourself a small cabin at the seaside, wear massive hooped earrings and an arm full of bangles and begin to talk in a mystic Meg like tone to use a crystal ball.
Today crystal balls are used by everyday people as a fantastic tool for receiving messages and guidance.
So how do you use a crystal ball? Here are some simple steps to get you started.
Create the environment
The key to any divination technique is to calm the mind. Try out different techniques to see what works for you such as burning incense, listening to calming music, lighting candles or meditating with crystals. Generally it is easier to use a crystal ball when you are in a quite, dimly lit room.
In the room that you intend to use your crystal ball it is advised that you complete a protection mediation. There are so many of these available you can easily find one that works for you via Google. Crystals such as hematite and tigers eye can add protection.
Cleanse the ball
Visualise the crystal ball being filled with a beautiful white light of cleansing energy. If there is sun or moonlight in the room hold the crystal ball into the light to enhance the energy. Imagine any negative energy within the crystal ball evaporating in to the air, so that the crystal ball is fully charged with positive energy.
Now you are ready to go
Place the crystal ball on its stand. If you have any crystals handy place these around the crystal ball, especially those linked to spiritual guidance such as flourite.
The key to working with a crystal ball is having a clear mind. Focus your attention to the crystal ball letting go of any worries and thoughts that you have.
Place both hands on the crystal ball and focus your mind on the area you would like the crystal ball to guide you on. Talk out loud if it feels more comfortable for you.
When you feel ready take your hands off the crystal ball and gaze in to it. Allow your eyes to drift within the ball and become unfocused.
A cloud will form inside the crystal ball similar to fog. Allow this fog to expand within the crystal ball. When you are ready the cloud will gradually disappear leaving a range of images relating to your question.
Ending the session
Use your visualisation skills to see the mist reappearing inside the crystal ball. Always say thanks (it's just polite). Repeat the cleansing technique above. You can add to the original cleansing technique by wiping the ball with a sage smudge stick if you want to. Wrap your crystal ball in a dark silk cloth if you have one and store it safely until next time.
Most people will not see anything or you will see images and symbols that do not link to your question on their first few attempts. If you are one of those people, don't worry! It takes time and practice to train your mind in a new skill. Keep practicing each day.
