Scrying. What is it? Is it what it sounds like? Staring out at the sky? Well not necessarily.
Scrying also known as Hydromancy, Crystal Gazing, and Oculomancy is a Esoteric Practice.
Esoteric Practices are a special, unusual, or rare practice that many people dont take part in.
More so Scrying is a type of DIVINATION TECHNIQUE. Divination is
the practice of seeking knowledge of the future or the unknown by supernatural means.
So why would someone want to learn how to scry??
Have you ever wondered about future events or had a question you really wanted an answer to now rather then later? Well Scrying or other divination techniques can help the indivisual to find out the answers to their questions at hand. Scrying helps to get in touch with the unconscious mind. If you are struggling to find direction, the meaning or purpose in life Scrying could help you to discover your inner needs.
To be honest Scrying is a wonderful Divination Technique but it is not one that I have really practiced myself. A friend of mine admitted to having interest in this practice and asked if I would create a post on it so they could learn more about it. Well as someone that blogs on these types of topics there was no way I could turn them away by saying no.
Even though I havent practiced Scrying myself doesnt mean I dont use other types of Divination Practices.
Types of Divination I have used and still use today:
Tarot card readings:
Tarot divination is a form of cartomancy (card divination) which uses special Tarot cards. Tarot cards are similar to playing cards in that they have four suits (Wands, Cups, Swords, and Coins) plus Court Cards (Kings, Queens, Knights, and Pages). Unlike playing cards, Tarot cards have 22 extra cards including Death, The Devil, and The Lovers.
Astrology is divination using the movement of the planets and stars. Of all methods and forms of fortune-telling, Astrology is the most famous and probably the most widely practiced.
Automatic Writing is a straightforward type of divination. All you have to do is grab a pen and paper, clear your mind, then let the words flow out of you. Some practitioners claim that during Automatic Writing, they channel messages from spirits, their true selves, and even otherworldly beings.
Palmistry is divination by reading someone’s hand. For as long as there has been recorded history, humans have attached spiritual significance to their hands.
Because dreaming is natural, dream interpretation is possibly one of the most ancient methods of divination. It is only human nature to have a dream and then wonder what the significance is behind it. Assigning spiritual significance to dreams has been practiced throughout history.
One of the great things about a pendulum reading is that a pendulum can give you a simple ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answer to any questions you might have.
So after practicing these amazing Divination Techniques throughout my Spiritual Journey with Witchcraft how could I turn down learning another awesome practice? The answer is I couldnt.
Since I couldnt turn down the request lets learn more about this great Divination Technique!
How is Scrying performed?
Scrying is performed using reflective surfaces like Mirrors, Water, or Crystal ball.
Who doesnt love working with shinny materials?
Scrying Exercise for Beginners:
Find a reflective service traditionally a Mirror, bowl of Water, or a strip of shinny Metal.
Prepare your space. Go to a quiet space with no distractions.
Set your scrying tool on a stable, flat service. Sit down in front of it, close your eyes and start to calm your mind. Let go of any stressful or confusing thoughts.
Form a purpose. Concentrate on the purpose or topic for which you want to perform a scrying. Think about your topic for a few minutes.
Open your eyes.
Look at your scrying tool and imagine that your physical eyes are sharing a beam of light with the reflective service.
What did you see??
Some people see physical manifestations, others see symbols. If you didnt see anything not to worry. This is not unusual. Try again the next day. Keeping at it and practice is key. With everything practice is necessary. After practicing a bit you should be able to start picking up on imagies, symbols and maybe even manifestations as well!
This has been my post on Scrying. I hope you enjoyed the read and enjoy practicing Scrying yourself and who knows maybe the other divination techniques I mentioned also caught your eye. Remember to keep at it. Practice makes perfect and HAVE FUN WITH IT!
