Mirror Scrying, Cloud Scrying, Fire Scrying & Other Ancient Forms of Divination

What is Scrying?

Scrying is an ancient form of divination, dating back thousands of years. Different forms of scrying have been present in ancient to modern day civilizations all across the world. Scrying can also be found in many different religious and spiritual beliefs and is often used to tell a person their past, present or future. Many people since the witch-burning ages have called scrying a form of witchcraft; however, this is untrue. Many cultures have used scrying in their spiritual rites and journeys, including the Native Americans and Ancient Celtic Druids. It is quite interesting to find that even some Christian Kings of the past called upon “seers” to use different methods of scrying to aid them in battle or love scenarios.

One of the most well-known forms of scrying is crystal-ball gazing. This type of scrying really became popular in the fifteenth century all throughout Europe. Seers were able to look into the crystal ball and see images that took form within the crystal’s many layers. They would then interpret this image and speak that interpretation to the seeking person…who many times was of royal descent. There is also mirror scrying, fire scrying, cloud scrying, pond/lake scrying, and different forms of stone scrying and earth scrying. There is a type of scrying for every person’s element…you just have to find the one to suit your soul and third eye.

Check out some or all of the forms of scrying that I have written about below. Maybe you could try each of these forms of scrying for yourself and determine which was your favorite and to which you most felt connected?

Scrying and Divination Techniques

Scrying is something I bet you’ve done without even realizing it – the beginning part of it anyway.

How many times have you watched the clouds drifting by in the sky, seeing faces and shapes in them? Have you ever stared blankly at a wall, ceiling, or floor and seen faces and shapes move across them?

That is scrying. (kind of) 😉 It means getting into a relaxed, meditative state and focusing on the shapes and symbols we see, and trying to interpret what meaning they may have for us.

Scrying is a form of divination, which means “fortelling the future,” but it is also a great tool…

Full Moon Water Scrying Divination

Updated March 13, 2017

The full moon has long been considered a symbol of wisdom and intuition. We feel its connection every month, when it lights the night sky. Many of us feel more energetic and alert during the full phase of the moon. This is partly because our bodies and mind are intricately connected to the lunar cycles. Like our selves, water is also linked to the changing face of the moon — just ask anyone who lives on the coast about the phenomenon of “lunar tide”!

This divination is one of the simplest. It’s best to do it outside if at all possible, because, after all, you are relying on the moon to illuminate the water for you! If you can’t perform this ritual on the night of the full moon, the night immediately before or immediately after is just as acceptable.

WHAT YOU’LL NEED

In addition to a clear sky and a full moon, you’ll need the following items:

  • A table or some sort of flat work space
  • A dark bowl
  • A pitcher containing enough water to fill the bowl
  • A journal or notepad to write in, as well as a pen
  • Optional: your favorite meditative music

If your tradition normally requires you to cast a circle, do so now. If you’d like to play some music, go ahead and start your cd player. Sit or stand comfortably at your workspace.

Begin by closing your eyes, and attuning your mind to the energy around you. Feel the soft earth under your feet. Hear the rustling of the wind in the trees. Breathe in the scent of grass and earth that lingers in the air. Raise your arms out to your sides, palms facing up, and feel the energy of the moon above you.

Take some time to gather that energy. It’s a pull, a palpable sensation that we can feel, if we just take the time to look for it. Feel that silvery power above you, and recognize your connection to it, and to the Divine.

When you are ready to begin scrying, open your eyes. Notice the night all around you. You may feel an unusual sense of clarity and alertness – don’t be alarmed, it’s just that lunar energy at work. Raise the pitcher in one hand, holding it over the bowl. As you do, visualize wisdom and guidance within the water. As you pour the water into the bowl, from the pitcher, see the energy of the moon charging that water. Recognize that this water can show you the mysteries of the moon.

When the bowl is full, position yourself so that you can see the moon’s light reflected directly into the water. Stare into the water, looking for patterns, symbols or pictures. You may see images moving, or perhaps even words forming.

You may have thoughts pop spontaneously into your head, that seem to have nothing at all to do with anything. Use your journal, and write everything down. Spend as much time as you like gazing into the water — it may be just a few minutes, or even an hour. Stop when you begin to feel restless, or if you’re getting distracted by mundane things (“Hm, did I feed the cat?”).

WHEN YOU’RE DONE

When you are finished gazing into the water, make sure you have recorded everything you saw, thought and felt during your scrying session. Messages often come to us from other realms and yet we frequently don’t recognize them. If a bit of information doesn’t make sense, don’t worry — sit on it for a few days and let your unconscious mind process it. Chances are, it will make sense eventually. It’s also possible that you could receive a message that’s meant for someone else — if something doesn’t seem to apply to you, think about your circle of friends, and who it might be meant for.

Afterwards, you can leave your water out overnight to charge it even more, or you can pour it away into your garden as an offering.

** Note: If you live near a natural body of water such as a pond or lake, you can perform water scrying with these larger “bowls” instead!

Using a Pendulum: Intro & How to Make a Pendulum

Using a pendulum is an ancient method of divination. It is also called dowsing.

For millennia, and still today, people dowse to find water, when wanting to put in a well… appropriately also called water witching.   wicca-spirituality Winking Witch   In modern times, they have been used to locate deposits of metals and gemstones, Earth ley lines, and even tunnels and weapons by the US marines in Vietnam!

In Wicca, we use this divination tool to access Divine guidance. That’s what divination means!

Here is some basic information to get you started.

Pendulums

Pendulums can be made of different materials, some people using a simple necklace with a crystal or charm at the end. Be sure the bob or bobber – or weight on the end – is not too light or too heavy. It should weigh less than half an ounce. The best shape for the weight – or point – is something that comes to a point. The best length for the pendulum is six inches. You can make your pendulum or buy one.

Pendulums are a simple way to communicate with the other side. I have seen people in stores use them to select products such as: books, food, clothing, just about anything.

The most common types of pendulums are:

– a crystal tied with wire then suspended on a chain or cord
– a chain necklace with some kind of charm suspended at the bottom
– a chain with metal pointer at the bottom – these are usual store bought
– the human body

Using a Pendulum

Important information about Using a Pendulum

Sometimes, we need easy answers to things. With time, patience and persistence in practice, a pendulum is usually accurate, easy to use and takes little time. It is important to have a quiet setting where you are free from outside influences and will not be disturbed. Always bear in mind regarding divination, that if you feel very strongly, you may influence the divination tool you are working with and it may produce incorrect answers. It takes time, opening and empowering your mind and soul through meditation and also working with a pendulum on a regular basis and keeping a journal [a black book] to record the answers it gives you and whether it was accurate or not. You should also include the date, the time you worked with the pendulum, the phase of the Moon, the weather and if possible, the planets, such as Mercury being retrograde.

Begin by taking something like a small crystal, pendent, ring or other small lightly weighted object and attaching it to a necklace chain, string, ribbon, or some other kind of strand. This should be only kept for divination purposes and not for other uses. Your personal pendulum will be infused with your energy, the same as is with a Satanic Rosary or other ritual item and should be treated with respect and put away when you are not using it.

Pendulum Divination

A pendulum is one of the simplest and easiest forms of divination. It’s a simple matter of Yes/No questions being asked and answered. Although you can purchase pendulums commercially, ranging from about $15 – $60, it’s not hard to make one of your own. Typically, most people use a crystal or stone, but you can use any object that’s got a bit of weight to it.

MAKE YOUR OWN PENDULUM

If you decide to make your own pendulum, you’ll need a few basic supplies:

  • A crystal or other stone
  • Jeweler’s wire or string
  • A lightweight chain

Take the crystal and wrap it in a length of jeweler’s wire. When you’re done wrapping it, leave a loop at the top. Attach one end of the chain to the loop. You’ll want to make sure the chain isn’t too long, because you’ll probably be using it over a table or other surface. Generally, a chain between 10 – 14″ is perfect. Also, be sure you tuck in any poky pieces of wire so you don’t jab yourself later.

CHARGE AND CALIBRATE YOUR PENDULUM…
