CRYSTAL GAZINGDIVINATION
You may know the practice of scrying as hydromancy, oculomancy, or crystal gazing. Whatever name you prefer, scrying refers to the ancient art of revelation.

To scry, you need a reflective surface as a medium you can gaze into. This is where the water, the candle’s flame, the mirror, or the crystal ball comes into play. The earliest use of the crystal ball recorded was by the Druids and the Scottish Highlanders. They referred to them as the “stones of power.”

In the middle ages, crystal balls were considered precious items that should be passed on from one to another. Apache medicine men would use clear quartz crystals to induce visions.

The crystal ball is also used to communicate with the Divine. Through the crystal ball, the Divine can impart messages, lessons, warnings, and nuggets of wisdom. And in turn, you may communicate with the Divine through this very same medium.
