Once you’ve reconnected with your crystal ball, reposition it on the table and direct the light toward it. While doing so, move slowly and keep your attention on the relationship between you and the ball. You are now ready to go to the final step before beginning the actual reading of the crystal ball. Inhale and exhale two or three times from your heart center. Consider how your heart is connected to the point on the ball into which you are gazing. Then, visualize that the middle of your forehead, also known as your third eye, is connected to that same location on the ball. Take a few moments to sense the energy triangle formed by the center of your forehead, the center of your heart, and the crystal ball. This method of connecting with the ball will assist you in remaining focused on your inner sense of truth and in remaining aligned with your psychic and intuitive knowledge. This is where you will obtain the most profound wisdom for your work with the crystal ball.
All of this may appear to be quite time-consuming. However, you will shortly discover that the procedure becomes natural, progressing easily from one stage to the next. At initially, it may take twenty or thirty minutes, but with practice, you’ll quickly reduce that time to four or five. Each session will be simpler and quicker than the previous one.
You are now prepared to begin the reading. Close your eyes briefly and feel the crystal ball’s modest pulsing with each hand on either side. After then, place your hands in your lap. While keeping your inner attention, open your eyes and peer into the crystal ball. Choose an area of interest. If you choose, you can move the crystal ball slowly around the room until you come upon an interesting region. When you’ve discovered something that interests you, or when you simply want to stop. Concentrate your gaze on an area of interest and examine it more closely. What are your observations? Allow yourself to lean closer to the crystal ball if necessary, but maintain a straight spine.
As you continue to look at the ball, you will notice that your eyesight becomes increasingly diffused. At this point, you may notice that you are no longer seeing details in the same way. You may experience impressions or see symbols that trigger memories. Rather than attempting to decipher the symbols, simply gaze deeper into the crystal ball, recording your experience.
At this time, you may experience a loss of distinction between you and the crystal ball. You may have the sensation of being inside it, or of being inside a transparent orb of light with no edges or boundaries. You’ve arrived. When you are within the crystal ball in this position, you are in a trance state, completely present in the moment, with all your concentration focused on the ball and oblivious to anything else.
While reading a crystal ball, you may feel a tug in the center of your forehead, almost as if you are being gathered there, as if a thread were being pulled from a piece of cloth, causing a puckering. Feel the energy roots extending out of your feet, re-grounding you. Your ears, the back of your neck, and even the top of your head should all be relaxed. Utilize your breath to assist you in this, visualizing your healing breath traveling to those places of tension. Following grounding, breathe twice or three times out of the center of your forehead, until you feel as if your head is opening and filling with clear blue sky. This sensation will pass as you practice crystal gazing more frequently. Just as when you begin a new physical activity that places a strain on a weak muscle, these areas of your body will gradually strengthen.
There are numerous techniques to convey the sensation of being “within” a crystal ball. It is sometimes compared to being in a gorgeous sky filled with a variety of different clouds. A crystal ball, on the other hand, will have a thousand times more than a cloud. Once inside, it appears to be infinitely large, as vast as the universe.
Additionally, there are numerous methods for peering into a crystal ball. Indeed, the term “see” is deceptive. Rather than that, what we sense is more akin to intense visual and nonvisual impressions, or seeing images in our minds’ eye, even if those images appear to originate in the crystal ball. You may even be able to hear or perceive sounds. You may notice variations in temperature.
Another method of seeing is to use the crystal ball as a portal to an inner seeing, while maintaining focus with the crystal energy. This is the procedure: To begin, maintain your attention in the crystal ball until your vision becomes diffused or hazy. Then, closing your eyes (or allowing them to close naturally), visualize the crystal ball in your mind’s eye, sitting on the table in front of you, exactly as it was the last time you viewed it. Visualize the crystal ball growing in size until all that is visible in front of you is the ball. It continues to increase in size until all that remains is a crystal wall in front of you. There are no edges because it is so large. Then envision a door opening in front of you while you look. Visualize yourself walking through this doorway and closing it behind you.
You are now completely immersed in a crystal environment. Consider how certain areas of the crystal resemble landscapes, other things, or even clouds in the sky. Imagine a crystal chair in front of you and take a seat in it. Then, as we spoke previously, continue to breathe, anchoring your roots in the crystal ground, opening your heart core, and finally your crown (top of your head) to the great crystal sky.
Allow yourself to enter this endless crystal space while focusing your attention on your heart. You may get the sensation of floating or flying. Alternatively, you may feel at ease on your chair or on another surface. You may find yourself in alternate worlds-worlds that are foreign to you. Make no attempt to analyze what is occurring at this stage. Allow yourself to be, exactly as you would when you are outside or at home, sitting in your chair and reading your crystal ball. Allow yourself to simply exist within this universe. Begin recording your perceptions, or what you see and experience. Begin by posing your own questions. If you’re having difficulty finding an answer to a question, see a giant crystal book opening in front of you and turning the pages until you find it.
Another technique for reading a crystal ball is to deal with the crystal ball’s veils and inclusions. After attuning and aligning with the crystal ball, examine the details created by these inclusions or veils. Once you’ve discovered something that piques your curiosity, dig deeper. Take a look and see where it leads. Once you enter the trance state, these details begin to propose things to you-faces, landscapes, outer space, or scenarios that provide answers to your queries. If you observe a landscape, seek out a trail that leads inward as you examine it more attentively. Follow this path farther and deeper into the ball until your vision becomes blurred and what you’re seeing becomes less distinct, until you’re seeing primarily with your mind’s eye. Your eyes may close or not.
Once inside the crystal ball, you can begin asking questions or concentrating on the reason for the reading. Bear in mind that you are not required to have a specific question in mind when doing a reading. Occasionally, I use the crystal ball to unwind, to clear my head, or to stimulate my creativity.
When you’re asking questions or seeking solutions to an issue, keep in mind that the answers you receive from a crystal ball are always there within you. They appear to originate from the crystal ball, yet the ball is really a tool. It assists you in re-connecting with a level of awareness or consciousness that we frequently lose sight of in the craziness of daily life.
When you connect your mind and heart and transcend linear thinking, you enter the present moment; you begin to live more in the here and now. This allows you to transcend the confines of the mind, what you imagine your reality to be, and all constraints and expectations. It’s as if you’re taking a giant leap forward.
When we transcend the linear thinking, we gain knowledge of things that are not accessible through more linear modes of perception. Similarly, if another person asks the question and you use the crystal ball to answer it, understand that you are merely assisting them in accessing the answer that is already within them. The crystal ball, on the other hand, assists you in focusing in a way that allows these answers to surface.
The human mind is remarkable in that the majority of what we create-including our problems!—comes from what we have stored in our thoughts as highly specific patterns of thinking and emotion. When we are unable to find a suitable solution to a problem or desire something more interesting than what we currently know, we must break free from those patterns of thought and emotion. However, this is extremely difficult to accomplish. We’ve grown accustomed to the old habits, and our minds continue to draw us back to them. Only by deceiving our thoughts with technologies such as the crystal ball are we able to break free from these patterns for a little while. We physically empty our minds to make way for new forms. Additionally, it has been argued that when we enter this state of not knowing, our old patterns are shuffled like a deck of cards, offering us with a brand-new game.
Crystal ball gazing is a technique that assists you in opening up, allowing you to view unstructured realities, or material that is frequently referred to as the “invisible reality.” It’s rather akin to peering through a window into the intuitive realm, the world of emotions, intentions, dreams, and spirit. The experience of crystal gazing encompasses all possible modes of seeing, hearing, and sensing things in ways that you would not normally do. It is a means of transcending the limitations of your reasoning mind and thereby entering the intuitive, creative, and mystical worlds, depending on how you desire to use it.
When you abandon your linear manner of experiencing the world and enter the doorway leading to a reality beyond the rational mind, ordinary comprehension dissolves. You begin to encounter a reality that you are unable to comprehend in the conventional way. Indeed, you may be unable to describe the parameters of this other universe or to assign it any particular shape or form.
People occasionally inquire about the source of the fresh information that fills the void created by crystal ball gazing and other intuitive techniques. There are numerous possible responses to this question, but the basic line is that the solutions are always available. They are held in the universe at all times, just as the mysteries of life and death are held in the universe. Our patterns and habits of thought preclude us from getting all but a small percentage of those responses. That is why entering a state of not-knowing is critical; it helps us to let go of the tiny bit of knowledge on which we have grown to rely and to open our hearts and minds to another small piece of wisdom that the cosmos may possess.
Another way to look at crystal ball reading is as a means of gaining access to your subconscious or intuitive knowledge. Therefore, when you ask a question of the crystal ball, do so with the awareness that you are also asking a question of yourself, the cosmos, or a higher intellect. The solutions are always present; all that is required is the unique kind of openness provided by the crystal ball.
A significant part of successful interpretation is properly posing your questions. Not only is it critical to ask your questions without interjecting your own emotions, but it is also critical to ask them as directly, simply, and plainly as possible, because the answer you receive will immediately reflect all of the components of the question you asked. If you do not structure your inquiries in a direct and basic manner, there will be so many problems that your inquiry will be impossible to answer with any degree of clarity or accuracy. You may have actually asked multiple questions in one, and you may even be unaware of some of the details or ramifications. A simple question may bring to mind more occurrences or elements that you were unaware of, but they may be tracked out and made sense of. If you do have a complicated question, approach it incrementally.
When words, images, or sensations begin to come back to you in response to your queries and you begin to describe what you’re receiving, resist the urge to let your mind to retreat to the rational and linear. Do not attempt to “interpret” or “understand” what you are receiving. Simply jot down your impressions. You must give complete freedom to whatever is coming through. Consider the knowledge as a river, and imagine yourself being carried along by the current. Swim with, not against, the current. Analyzing it will result in the construction of a dam that will divert the flow. When swimming, simply swim.
Occasionally, as you gaze into the crystal ball, you discover that the initial question you asked becomes irrelevant, or that the solution arrives almost before you can pronounce it. Oftentimes, inquiry is conducted entirely nonverbally because the answers are available as soon as the question is framed.
Occasionally, the replies you receive are nonverbal impressions that become verbal only afterwards. Indeed, you may not always grasp how your impressions relate to the subject you’ve posed. If this occurs, simply jot down your impressions and then reflect on them to arrive at your response. Naturally, while verbalizing a nonverbal impression, you are compelled to employ the linear tools of your mind on which language is built. Interpretation becomes a difficulty at this stage. When we interpret an image, the likelihood is that we are imposing our own “spin” on the data, which may or may not be a distortion. The question then becomes how to clean our lens in such a way that distortion is minimized. The response is that by practice and re-examination of the information we get, we can at least move closer to clarity and truth.
Pure information from a crystal ball reading does not have to arrive immediately following the reading. You may obtain only a portion or a portion of it. You may be able to see only a portion of your vision. Therefore, capture your vision or impressions and then dwell on them afterwards. Take note of what it says. Sit with it, meditate on it, allow yourself to dream about it, so that it continues to offer fresh insights. Each time you review your data, you may have a better understanding of its meaning.
Once you believe you have a grasp on the messages received during a reading, you may not wish to stop there. Keep a journal of your first impressions. Return to the original “data” repeatedly, since you may occasionally obtain fresh insights years later. What you gain from it is not necessarily immediate. You may need hours, weeks, or even years to completely comprehend the event.
When we gaze into a crystal ball, three things happen: (I) we watch images, receive impressions, or otherwise perceive information, (II) we separate our own projections, wishes, and expectations from other information in order to perceive more clearly, and (III) we interpret the information. Due to the fact that the information in our readings is always formed by our own minds eye, performing an accurate reading can be challenging. You must have complete faith in what you see during your reading, even while you are aware that what you see is shaped to some measure by your own projections, wishes, and expectations. For instance, you may see a ship in your crystal ball, indicating that you are about to embark on a world tour. However, the ship may actually signify that your life is about to undergo a significant shift, and you simply regarded a global tour as a fulfillment of a lifetime desire. The tour was a projection of yours. This process of filtering with wishes and expectations can be beneficial or detrimental, and emphasizes the importance of testing all your knowledge in the “real world” thereafter before accepting anything as true. Even if you’re free-associating, which is a sort of projection, you’re doing so consciously to activate your intuitive mind. As your intuitive mind gets more active, images and thoughts will eventually appear to flow toward you rather than away from you. Pay attention to them, separating fantasy, free association, and other subjective information from objective content. As long as you are conscious of and willing to release your own projections, you can increase the “purity” of your readings.
How is this accomplished? Practice, practice, and more practice… with a healthy dose of patience. Additionally, there are a handful of other things to keep an eye out for. If you find yourself repeatedly asking a question in order to obtain a “better” answer than the one provided, this is usually a sign that you are desiring a specific response. This desire will obstruct your reading because when you receive the “better” response, what you are actually receiving is an amplification of your want, not the reality. If you realize that you are asking your questions with any underlying emotions, you can be certain that your response will be an exaggeration of your own mood. For instance, if you phrase your question in frustrated terms such as “Why doesn’t this person love me?” you will receive both your own frustration and the question’s frustration compounded in a frustrated response… all at the same time! Thus, your reading is really a reflection of your frustrated state of mind. Rather than that, ask non-emotional questions. If you become imprisoned in an emotion that you are unable to overcome, pause your reading until the emotion passes. When you read with this level of dispassion, you have the sensation that the impressions enter your inner eye and then flow directly out of your mouth… a river of knowledge that continues to flow through you as long as you remain “tuned in.”
