Crystal gazing is a form of divination. By gazing into a crystal, diviners achieve a trance-like state which helps them to tell the future. It is also known as crystallomancy, gastromancy, and spheromancy.
Crystal gazing has been used across many cultures for millennia. There are several different forms of gazing, and each school has their own opinions on the source of the visions found using this technique.
“Seers” or “readers” try to predict the future or “see” events that are happening far away. Crystal gazing also helps in fortune telling and character analysis. People often turn to crystal gazing when they seek insight into current problems.
Seers gaze into any shiny object – a shiny gem, a mirror – though crystal balls are the most common choice. These balls come in various sizes, from quite small to very large.
Readers state that the ball should be perfectly round, without a flat bottom. It should be placed into a stand of wood or metal. Natural crystals are preferred, but glass ones are also effective as long as there are no imperfections (air bubbles). Natural crystal stones include quartz, amethyst, beryl, calcite, and obsidian.
To begin crystal gazing, select a quiet room, free from all distractions. As you gaze into the crystal ball, you will gently slip into a trance-like state. From this state, you will receive visions and insights. Use them wisely and you can make a better life for yourself.
