Personal Advice on Scrying

November 9, 2015


Scrying is a great, very cheap (or free) method of divination; but also one that can be extremely frustrating to get down. So here’s my personal tips on how I make scrying a little bit easier. These aren’t necessary by any means, and it’s literally just my method. Don’t feel like if you don’t follow what I do that you’re doing it wrong. This also isn’t a fail-proof method. Scrying is hard! Honestly, I fail to see anything more than I succeed.

Step One: Prepare your Scrying Material

While free methods of scrying include water gazing and fire gazing, fire gazing can seriously hurt your eyes and water isn’t always accessible to everyone (nor does it necessarily jive with everyone). I started out fire gazing but after switching to a crystal ball had much better success because I connected with the crystal and therefore the element of earth better. It also didn’t make my eyes water which helped. Some other common scrying materials are black mirrors, seer stones, and incense smoke. Take your material and put it away from other materials first and foremost. I find it helps that if the object is reflective, to keep it angled away from things that it might accidentally reflect. If the material is non-reflective, I like to make sure it’s at least against a blank background. I want to make sure I’m staring into my material, not past it at bills I gotta pay. Now is also the time to turn off anything that might distract you.

Step Two: Enter a Trance

I like to take my time when I do this. Entering a trance for some people can involve listening to music, binaural beats, or chanting to themselves. I like to sit very still and try to clear my head. I will take each thought swimming around my brain and acknowledge it, think about it one at a time, and then dismiss it. It takes a long time (sometimes up to an hour, one can worry or think about a lot of things at one time), but once you’ve completely cleared everything you’ll feel kind of tingly in a sense. Like calm. Relaxed. Once you notice this, it’s hard to resist the temptation to fill your head with thoughts again. But this is not a good idea. The clearer your head is, the less chance of interference you have for your scrying. You want to make sure that your visions aren’t coming from residual daily worries.

Step Three: Stare at the Scrying Material

This one is the most difficult step, because it’s the hardest. The first time I successfully scried, I had to wait for almost 20 minutes until I saw something. It’s easy to get bored or distracted but stay diligent! Keep staring, searching. I find it also helps to relax my eyes and let my vision blur a bit, almost like if you were staring at a magic eye puzzle. Actually, exactly like that. If you just kind of relax and keep looking, it’ll come to you.

Over time, you’ll get faster and faster at seeing things while scrying. But like I said, it’s very, very hard. I have failed many more times than I have succeeded, but don’t let that discourage you. It also does come easier to some than others. I’ve found that those who dream often and have prophetic dreams take to scrying better than those who don’t. But, it’s nowhere near impossible and the joy of having your first vision is amazing.

So, that concludes my tips. Let me know how this worked for you and if it did at all, and I’m always open for tips myself!
