Crystal balls have been used for scrying and divination for thousands of years. The art or process of “seeing” is known as “scrying.” Scrying is the art of looking into a reflective surface, such as glass, water, a mirror, or a crystal, to gain mystical insight. The information gleaned then is used to make decisions in one’s life.
Many of the crystal balls we carry here at aromaG’s are crystal, reconstituted quartz, selenite, and obsidian. You’ll find both large and small sizes in our Nashville store.
Crystal balls are not only for means of divination. Many use the ball to tap into the subconscious, to bring out hidden thoughts that the one receiving the reader may not be able to consciously access. The scryer (reader of the crystal ball) may draw out these unknown thoughts and make the querent more aware of untapped thoughts that may be holding them back.
CLEANING YOUR CRYSTAL BALL
when you first purchase a crystal ball, the first thing you should do it clean it to remove any energies of other people that may have handled it before you. It can be cleansed with mild, soapy water and a soft cloth or can be wiped off with vinegar water. When dry, smudge with white sage then hold the ball to bond it with your own energy.
Placing your scrying ball on a dark surface can help to diminish unwanted reflections, making it easy to stare into the ball for scrying.
It is best to use a stand or padded ring to rest your seeing crystal ball. We carry wooden stands, padded pillows, and metal stands for the ball. It is also extremely important that you not leave your scrying crystal in direct sunlight without a cloth covering; it may get mad and start a fire if you aren’t careful!
