The idea of a mysterious, magic mirror evokes scenes from fairy tales like Snow White, where the wicked queen looks into the mirror and is able to see what her enemies are plotting against her. But do magic mirrors really exist? Can they be used to see into the future, as seen in so many fantasy and horror films? The answer is yes.
The magic mirror, also known as the black mirror, is a powerful scrying tool that has been used for thousands of years. A scrying tool is typically an item with a polished or reflective surface, such as a crystal ball, mirror or even a bowl of water. The seer gazes into the reflective surface to see psychic visions.

There are many ways to obtain the same result in spirit communication, as many roads will take you to the same destination. Using the psychomanteum is one way to reach out to the spirit world. It is a device to help a person communicate with the other side, including departed loved ones, pets and spirit guides. The prophet Nostradamus used a similar reflective device to experience out-of-body travels into the future as indicated in Dr. Raymond Moody’s book.
Typically, the psychomanteum is an enclosed structure or chamber made of black cloth or wood, with a chair on one side facing a mirror on the other side. Some people also use a red darkroom light. A person sits in the chair gazing into the mirror, while relaxing enough to achieve a light trance state. In this altered state of consciousness it is easier for one to see visions reflected in the mirror. Read the rest of this entry »
Certain themes of visions by prophets would have been created by regions of their brain. Studies by Oliver Sachs has shown that types of hallucinations – even art – comes from certain brain regions. For example, with certain medications or stimulation, whether it be stress, sleep or illness, excited regions may create or imagine certain patterns, including abstractions, colors, words, and even spiritual revelation.
This is why people initiate spiritual visions through meditation, or hypnosis. In waking life, this is why some people are predisposed towards painting portraits of faces, for example, whereas others prefer painting nature. Some personality types would have excited brain areas that could generate godlike visions. This would be the identical area for people when they were asleep. Read the rest of this entry »
Could some of the famous prophets, such as Nostradamus, or the prophets of the King James Version of the Bible, or the prophet Mohammad, actually have been time travelers?
And is it merely coincidence that the Oracle of Delphi used a brass seat for visions of the future? As did Nostradamus, the 16th Century French poet and visionary. Nostradamus writes, “I will be seated at night, in my secret study. Alone sitting upon a stool of brass, a flame shall leap forth from the solitude, granting that which is not to be believed in vain.”
And, in the 1895 HG Wells fiction novel, The Time Machine, the protagonist of the story uses a black and polished brass time machine to gain mechanical control over time. Is there something about sitting on brass that allows one to see into the future? Or, could they possibly be talking about a brass seat on a sort of vehicle? Read the rest of this entry »
Clients who visit me for private sittings often appear to be fascinated by my crystal ball, which always sits on a stand to the left of me as I work. With the help of my lovely crystal ball and a selection of divination cards, including the Tarot, I get assistance from spirit and my Ancestors in the form of symbols and letters.
Crystal-gazing, known as crystallomancy is a popular form of scrying. Crystal balls were known to be used in Europe way back in the 1500s, but historians also mention them being used at some time or other by many other cultures of the world. Read the rest of this entry »
Sometimes human behavior and events on Earth feel utterly unfathomable. But, everything can be deciphered. Just a few weeks ago, something seemingly unfathomable came to pass once more. Andreas Lubitz stepped onboard German Wings flight 9525 with a very clear intention – to destroy himself and everyone else on that plane. He succeeded.
Who was Lubitz? What on earth was going on within him? Was it possible to calculate the risk that he represented? Could this event have been predicted? Was it even possible to determine when he would take action? I believe Astrology offers answers. Read the rest of this entry »
Perhaps the most famous premonitions are those of Michel de Nostradamus – the reputed seer that we still speak of around the world today.
Nostradamus discovered his special gifts at an early age and began to predict birth dates and the sex of unborn children. He was also summoned by Catherine de Medici (King Henry II’s queen) to read astrological charts as an unofficial court advisor.
Nostradamus foresaw World War II, JFK’s assassination, and the fall of communism. Nostradamus also gave the date of the French Revolution as 1789 and correctly predicted the execution of the King and Queen. He predicted World War I, prophesying cruelty and terror by land, in the sea and air. Nostradamus was puzzled by visions of airplanes describing them as “a flock of ravens high in the air, and throwing fire from the sky on the cities and on the soldiers below.” He named the King of Bulgaria “fair haired Ferdinand”, foresaw the collapse of the Turkish Empire, the independence of Hungary, Bohemia and Poland, as well as the enlargement of Romania and the creation of Yugoslavia.
