How to work with crystal balls:
Place the crystal on a table in front of you. Many crystal balls you can buy come with their own stand. If you don’t have a stand you might like to use a small cushion or a silk handkerchief purchased and reserved specially for this purpose.
Sit down and relax. Lay your hands gently on the ball or hold it (depending on it’s size) for a minute or two in order to energise it and strengthen your psychic rapport.
Whilst touching or holding the crystal ball, think about the purpose of this scrying session. If appropriate try to visualise the subject of your question. Some readers like to ask the question out loud, others find the process works best if they internalise it.
Now, remove your hands from the crystal. Look into the crystal, stare deeply. Allow your eyes to relax and become slightly unfocussed.
Anything you see, feel, hear etc might not be what you expected. That’s OK, don’t fight them. Your subconscious mind knows what information you need. Just let the images flow, changing and taking you wherever they choose to go. Don’t try to rationalise now, time for that later.
