8 Basic Steps For Using A Crystal Ball
Celtic Tribes and Druids are of the earliest known peoples
to have used crystal balls in divination, as early as 2000 BC. During central Europe’s
Medieval Period (AD 500-1500), seers, wizards, sorcerers, psychics, gypsies,
fortune tellers, and all other types of diviners also used crystals to “see”
into the past, present, or future.
Crystal balls have been used as sacred tools by diverse
peoples for thousands of years. It is
important to remember that crystals are sacred tools and to treat them as such,
keeping them on your home altar or other sacred space when they are not in
use. It is also advised to keep your
crystal ball covered with a black cloth to prevent the light from reaching it
when it isn’t in use.
Upon obtaining a new crystal ball or any other sacred
stones, I like to sleep with it for at least 4 nights to begin establishing a
connection. (cleanse it first) During this time your crystal ball will most
likely share its name with you. When
speaking to your crystal ball make sure to call it by its name. A personal bonding with your crystal ball
will happen and therefore you should not let others handle or touch your
You should also provide a special bag or box for your
crystal ball to protect it during transportation. Use this special bag or box only for your
Like any other sacred tool, your crystal ball will need to
be cleansed on a regular basis.
Personally, I use sage or sweetgrass to smudge my crystal ball before
and after every use. There are many
other recommended methods of cleansing you can discover with a little research.

out all artificial light sources, close drapes and darken your room. A background light source such as a lit
candle should be used in an otherwise darkened room. A white candle representing purity, or a
purple candle representing higher spiritual purpose are good to use. As you progress you can use other colors
according to your purpose for the session.
Be sure to clearly state that you will only allow positive energies
to enter otherwise the door is open for any energy to enter. I like to create a circle to work in by
cleansing and protecting the space using sage to smudge the area.
and breathe deeply and rhythmically.
Allow all tensions and negativity to flow out of you as you exhale
each breath. Ground yourself and as
you inhale bring in the energy of the Light, focus your thoughts on your
purpose for the session and respectfully ask for the answers to be
you are completely relaxed, centered and focused, open your eyes and allow
your eyes to drift to a spot on your crystal ball that you feel drawn
to. Fixate your eyes on that spot
and allow your vision to go fuzzy (like when daydreaming) and gaze at that
spot actually allowing that daydreaming gaze to move through and past the
spot. Simply allow this to happen,
don’t try to force it. Clear your
mind of all thoughts, continue to breathe deeply and rhythmically allowing
a state of light meditation. At
this time your crystal may begin to appear smoky, cloudy or to
darken. Allow this to happen
without breaking your meditation state.
If you do lose your meditation state, simply begin again. Remember, practice makes perfect! You may begin to see images, experience
feelings, or hear communications.
Just go with the flow and don’t try to interpret, analyze or make
sense of your experience at this time.
Just relax and allow it to happen.
Also, make sure you aren’t trying to create images the way you want
to see them. Set aside personal
judgments, wants and desires, stop your own thoughts and ideas and be open
to what the crystal ball will show you even though it may not be what you
want or think it should be.
may also have physical sensations such as tingling, vibration, heat, or
cold. This is normal. The crystal will raise or lower your
personal vibration and bring you into the balance and harmony necessary
for spiritual connection so that communication can easily happen.
note of what you see within your crystal ball. You may find that when in the beginning
you have difficulty remembering what you see during your session. Have a note pad and pencil handy and try
writing down what you see. A tape
recorder works also to record what you see. While writing or speaking to your
recorder maintain your meditation state without losing your focus. This will take some practice as speaking
or writing will in the beginning have a tendency to bring you out of your
trance state. You can enhance your
ability to maintain your meditation state during physical activity by
learning to do walking meditation.
I like to practice walking meditation while out in nature, walking
upon a trail through the woods. Use
the same technique of deep, rhythmic breathing, releasing tensions, relax,
letting your vision go fuzzy and clearing your mind of thoughts
you have finished your session, allow yourself to return to the physical
present. Refocus your eyes and
breathe deeply, and ground yourself again in the physical plane. Be aware of your feelings at this
time. You may feel your energy
shift as you break the connection with your crystal, you may feel rested
like you’ve just awakened from a nap, and you may feel energized. To fully ground yourself have a small
snack and drink some water.
your crystal ball and return it to its place on your altar or sacred space
you have designated for it. Be sure
to thank your crystal ball for its help.
Learning to work effectively with your crystal ball will
take a lot of practice. Be patient. Don’t be discouraged if it doesn’t work the
first few times. Be persistent, keep
working at it and when you finally connect with your crystal ball it will work.
