Scrying is the art of ‘seeing’ through a specific medium. It is one of the most natural and accurate forms of divination. Natural mediums such as water, smoke and oil were among the first media used by the ancients, as far back as when the first hunter gatherer tribes roamed the Earth.
In the vast arena of nature, early humankind may have gazed into a still pond of water, or watched the patterns of the ripples on the surface, or they may observed the way the clouds were reflected on the water. In this they saw symbols that related to their lives and their connection with a supreme deity.
Later, as humankind advanced, scrying techniques also evolved. The ancient Egyptians and Babylonians were known to scry in the fire and smoke of oil lamps. Magical symbols and spells were often written on the linen wicks as a method of conveying their desires to the gods.
What I love about scrying is that it has been around since the dawn of civilisation – the very first people probably screed and everyone was at it! ~ Michele Knight
The ancient Romans scryed by means of augury – a method in which the entrails of a sacrificed animal were read for auspicious signs, Roman emperors even had a Royal Augerer appointed to their courts.
As a psychic, I became fascinated with scrying early in my career. I have explored many methods, beginning with the crystal ball, which I found to be a challenging tool at first. Crystal gazing I soon realized was not a matter of concentration, as often portrayed by stereotypical gypsy characters in the movies. Rather crystal gazing required confidence and patience.
With patience in a meditative state images will start to appear. They cannot be forced, and however fantastic the image may be, your first impression is always the right one. Sometimes the crystal ball will ‘cloud over’ and then reveal an image. The same holds true for other scrying tools, such as the black mirror or magic mirror, a water bowl, and a show stone.
Scrying with fire takes the form of candles, oil lamps and even cauldrons. The images are seen in the way the smoke rises or within the center of the flames. Cauldron gazing makes use of the smoke, fire and smoldering ashes to reveal images of the past, present and future.
There is a multitude of reasons that people scry. Some people scry to make connection with the energy of the universe. Others find it a stress free way to make decisions ~ Keith Ward
In practicing scrying a sense of the divine can be felt, a connection with the super consciousness, in which lies universal truths.
The best time for scrying is when you are relaxed and in a meditative state, when you will be most open to receive messages. It is a good idea to keep a notebook with you to record your impressions. Images at first may not make much sense, but upon further contemplation could represent a startling prediction.
Preparation for learning scrying can start simply with a walk in nature. Observe the cloud patterns, ripples in the water of a pond or stream, and even in the patterns of birds in flight.
The art of scrying always starts first with your sense of connection with the world around you. Only through that realization can you successfully interpret your scrying tool and its purpose as a connection to the Divine source.
