Scrying

Saw this article in Spiral Nature.

It's a primer on the art of scrying: http://bit.ly/2jy8X6I

I was sort of shocked to see that I have an object that looks quite like the one in the article.

here's mine, it's not as clear as the one in the article but it has a lot of interesting effects in the light:

Have you tried scryng Joan? I haven't and I am intrigued. I like the idea of trying with a shallow bowl of water and a candle but find the screen options fascinating too!

I have tried it. Not yet. Careful with the candle though, it can hurt your eyes. There are meditation techniques where you stare into a flame, but when I tried it hurt my eyes. Maybe I did it wrong.

Scrying seems to be a lost art. I'd love to hear from anyone who practices it.

It's not lost. Chapter III "Preliminaries" will get you there if you keep practicing. It takes awhile. http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/26622?m ... e_stranger

Personally, I never had any luck with candles. Too much flickering. A dim, steady light is best.
