Crystallomancy is a form of scrying divination that utilizes crystals (most commonly those shaped into spheres i.e. crystal balls).
Gazing into a crystal ball takes patience and practice. One most often needs to form a relationship with his or her crystal ball before any meaningful images appear.
One should always treat the crystal ball with respect as it is a powerful divinatory tool. Also, one's crystal ball is a very personal object, so one should not allow others to handle it (or even to view it when it is not necessary). One should safely store the ball in a silk cloth when it is not in use. This will help to keep its energetic vibrations clear and radiant.
It is best not to use the crystal ball if your energy is not clear. If one is not serious about the reading, or if one is in a negative state of mind, he or she should not use his or her crystal ball.
One should always intend the reading to be for the highest good of all beings, with the love and light of the universe.
There are a number of steps to performing a reading using crystals as divinatory tools. First, one must formulate a general question about a particular issue in which he/she needs guidance.
The question should be open-ended (i.e. it should not have a yes or no answer).
Then, the diviner must focus on the question at hand. It may help to write the question on a sheet of paper and/or to ask it aloud at least three times. Next, the diviner must prepare himself or herself for the reading. He or she must select the crystal(s) to be used while focusing on the question at hand.
To begin scrying, place your light source (preferably a candle) off to the side (so that the light does not interfere with the image you see when you are scrying) and gaze into your ball. The crystal may begin to go out of focus or become blurry to your eyes as you stare into it, then, after a time, images may begin to appear within the sphere.
Most commonly, one will observe symbolic images, although as one becomes more advanced, the images may become more literal. Symbolic visions should always be interpreted according to one's current life situation.
It is best for one to keep a scrying journal so that he or she is able to track his or her skills as a crystallomancer. It also aids in tracking a more complete interpretation of the images you obtain while gazing. A journal can also be helpful if one is performing readings for others.
