How to choose a crystal ball

Some crystal balls and not actually crystal.

When it comes to choosing a crystal ball, you will want to be aware of not only the budget but also what you are going to feel the most comfortable using. There are quite a few things to consider.

Be aware that a genuine crystal ball such as a clear quartz one can cost many hundreds of pounds for a decent size. Size is also important to you.

It is what you are the most comfortable using.

As a beginner, you may want to start with a clear glass sphere.

This will give you decent results with patience.

Once you begin to get some visions and images, it would be a good idea to go and buy your crystal ball in person.

There are many crystals and new age shops that will sell them. When you choose this method of purchasing you can hold it in your hands and know whether that particular type is right for you.

How to charge a crystal ball

When you learn how to use a crystal ball, it is very important to know how to charge a crystal ball and how to cleanse a crystal ball. It is an easy thing to do, and you will find that your results will be much better.

When you first buy your crystal ball, and after every session gazing into it you should cleanse and charge it. To cleanse a crystal ball and actually any crystal you can rinse it with running water and then place it in some salty water for a short period.

You can also pass it through the smoke of sage which can be purchased at any new age shop.

If you can run the crystal ball through a running river or the waves at the ocean, it has an even bigger cleansing effect.

Once you have cleansed the ball, you can move onto charging it up before the next use.

To charge a crystal ball place it in the moonlight or sunlight for a good period.

* Remember to be very cautious when placing a crystal ball in sunlight as it can be a serious risk of starting a fire.

How to use a crystal ball accurately.

Learning how to use a crystal ball accurately takes time and patience.

The most important thing of all is to be relaxed. It should not be a process that you do not enjoy or that you give up on because it seems too difficult.

I would suggest sitting quietly for twenty minutes before you begin. It gives you a little time to clear your mind of the day to day thoughts that we all have going on in our minds.

Carefully unwrap the crystal ball and place it on a table around a foot away from where you will be looking into it.

Crystal ball gazing or scrying is best done in a dimly lit or darkened room.

Candlelight is known to produce the most accurate results.

To begin with, ask that you are only shown the truth and in your mind surround yourself with protective white light.

Place your hand on the crystal ball for a few moments and visualise the white light surrounding you and the crystal ball.

Begin to gaze into the crystal ball.

If it is your first time, you need to start with a ten-minute session.

Do not expect too much too soon.

When you have finished be sure to write down and record everything you saw felt or experienced during your session.

Be sure to cleanse and charge the crystal ball before using it again.

How to use a crystal ball for divination

The crystal ball is known to have been used for divination ( fortune telling ) for thousands of years.

It is one of the most recognised items used by psychic readers in predicting future events.

A psychic reader or crystal ball gazer who wishes to see future events must first build up a relationship with the crystal ball.

When you begin to get symbols colours or images in your sessions, it is crucial to keep a journal and write everything down.

Make a note of the date of your session and the time.

The things that you may see in the crystal ball are unlimited.

When you record what you see give your very own interpretation of the things, you see.

Crystal ball gazing is a very personal thing between you and the crystal.

What you see and feel is not necessarily what someone else will feel.

With practice and patience, you will soon start to see some of your interpretations unfolding.

When you are ready, you can find a friend or family member to sit opposite you and then you can give them what you see in a short twenty-minute session.
