The art of psychic scrying is rooted in antiquity. Not only is it little-known, scrying is one the more difficult divination techniques. Anybody can study a book and grasp the Tarot or Runes, but to successfully scry commands a familiarity with symbolism and a capability of interpreting the symbols correctly.
You will need to devote copious amounts of time to this practice. So, if you are convinced you have no extra-sensory perception, the study of scrying will prove to be a waste of time. It is certainly an exercise in patience. If you’re not willing or don’t enjoy gazing at a scrying tool for hours, possibly without results, psychic scrying is probably not for you.
Psychics use reflective surfaces, such as mirrors or crystal balls, to obtain information from the Universe. The beginning scryer may only see symbols or colors, which must be decoded. This is one of the complexities of psychic scrying. But with dedicated practice, images of people, places and things are likely manifest, making it easier for the scryer to interpret the story.
Clairvoyants are probably the best candidates for mastering the art of scrying, as they are already comfortable when seeing visions. Clairaudients may overhear conversations as if the images were in another room. Psychic mediums might use a crystal ball to put their clients at ease. Most people expect the psychic to use ‘tools’, such as cards and crystal balls.
We know every girl needs a little black dress. With a resurgence of public interest in scrying, she may need a little black mirror too! The black scrying mirror, aka ‘magic mirror’ is a threshold to higher dimensions where the user can tap into wisdom of the ages and/or observe the client’s past, present and future.
It is purported that Nostradamus would go into a trance state and gaze into a bowl of water to “take a peek into the future”.
Divining with the little black mirror is not quick or easy to master But, at the end of the day, it divulges answers and information like none of the other metaphysical tools can. Master scryers can access Akashic records, where everything that was, is or ever will be is stored.
A beginner mistake is to try and force images to come, it’s best to remain relaxed, as if waiting for the movie to begin. If you decide to try scrying, don’t expect to see stories with beginnings, middles and ends. Sometimes information you are seeking appears in your mind’s eye, rather than the scrying tool. Or, your inner voice may divulge all you need to know at the time.
Scrying is a conundrum because you need to practice on real people, but you won’t know how until you get the gist of what your practice involves.
An easier way to start can be to use a pendulum to scry for answers.
