How do you do scrying or crystal gaze?

I been reading more about this and heard this is one way to see into your past lives.
What I do is just stare at my reflection for some time in some window until I hardly see myself. Nothing yet, but I look forward to the results
So what do you do to crystal gaze?

crystal gazing isn’t real. there are things called tvs and cameras that can carry images. that is science not magic. the mirror reflects light and crystal lets light through it. the light won’t ever take a shape.

Just keep working at it, and it’ll develope. The problem is that TV and camera’s have numbed our “scientific intelligentsia” to the idea that we have an imagination. They are so used to dreams and stories being packaged and shoved into their heads, that they often have a complete inability to think or dream in any other way.
When you are trying to scry, the images actually will be imagined there, much like a waking dream, or even better to think of it as a daydream. They crystals and the mirror are a point of focus, for you to aim your conscious mind at, and then to allow it to drift away, allowing you to daydream or dream. It will appear that the images are in the crystal, or the mirror, but that’s just a method of your dreaming mind manifesting.


There are various ways as well as various crystals that have been used.
Most common crystals used for this are clear quartz, smokey quartz, rose quartz, amethyst, and obsidian.
Here are some articles on Crystal Gazing:
Crystal Ball Gazing
This technique is best if done with a Crystal Ball 2-5 inches in diameter and works best on nights of the full moon.
Light one or two candles in a darkened, quiet room. You can hold the crystal or place it on a stand, but it should have a blue or black velvet cloth underneath it. Make sure that there are no reflections from anything showing in the ball. You can also burn incense if you wish. Patchouli is a good choice.
Before beginning, center yourself. Gaze into the ball, but do not stare. Try not to blink that much. While you are gazing, breathe in and out slowly and deeply. Just relax and gaze. You will feel a sense of limitless time. Enjoy the peacefulness and simply gaze. Do this for at least 15 minutes, and increase your time by 5 minutes with each succeeding session.
Usually around the second or third session, you will notice a small cloudy glow in the center of the crystal. This is your focusing area where your visions will appear. You may get a vision on your first try, while others have to
attempt it several times before seeing something. Go at your own pace.
Just a small warning: Always remember the saying “Be Careful What You Wish For” while gazing. Think about what you wish to see before gazing.
There are also different forms that visions come in. You can get actual visions of places and people, or you can get symbolic pictures. Another form that visions come in are color clouds. Although no one has been successful in
identifying what each color cloud means, the following has been pretty accurate for a lot of seers.
Blue clouds – success of career or business
Gold clouds – prosperity, steady cash flow, and renewed romance to come
Gray/Dark gray – ill fortune
Black clouds – some seriously bad stuff coming one’s way
Green clouds – health, happiness of the heart
Orange clouds – hidden aggression and anger, troubled emotions
Red clouds – danger to come. This person must watch themselves
Silver clouds – troublesome times ahead followed by goodness
White clouds – very good fortune to come
Yellow clouds – upcoming obstacles
Note: If the purchase a Crystal Ball is not within your budget, a bowl of water with a Quartz Crystal Cluster at the bottom will suffice. True Quartz Crystal Balls can be quite expensive. Also, never substitute a resin or glass ball since they are ineffective for anything other than children’s games.

Crystal Ball Gazing Technique
1. Darken the room around you. Put the crystal ball on a dark surface that will not reflect any light that will distract you. Have a candle or other form of light shining into and illuminating the ball. The light source can be reflecting up inside the crystal ball stand or behind the crystal. It can also be shining from behind you into the crystal ball.
2. Sit comfortably with your spine straight. Keeping your spine straight enables you to channel all the energy that comes through your body when you to your readings. Ground yourself and calm your mind.
3. Clear the crystal before using it, use the Smudge method. Then charge it using this method:
Hold the crystal ball and rub it with both hands. Then set it back on it’s stand while still maintain your focus. Next point a single-terminated quartz crystal or a crystal wand towards the ball at a distance where you most comfortably feel the two connect. When you feel or sense the subtle connection between the crystal and the ball, begin to circle the single-terminated crystal in a clockwise direction. Maintain the connection between the crystal and the ball. Soon you will feel the crystal ball pulsate. When you feel it
pulsating strongly you can lay your single-terminated crystal or crystal wand down and begin the next step.
4. Diffuse your vision.
5. find a spot in the ball the interests you. Bring all your attention to that spot. Now look at it in more detail. Allow your intellectual mind to relax. Leave yourself open to any impressions. Don’t have any preconceptions. Have no judgments. Remain relaxed, open and focused.
6. Now look at that area in still more detail. As you look at this area even more closely you may find yourself tensing. If so, take a deep breath and relax as you let it out. Continue to do this until you release the tension.
7. Continue to gaze into the particular area, seeing more and more detail. As you look at this minute detail the crystal ball seems to become larger. The more you lose your sense of yourself and are only conscious of the detail in the crystal space, the larger the ball seems to become. As you are looking, feel yourself opening as if you have no edges or boundaries. Allow yourself to lose your awareness of yourself and just be aware of the crystal ball.
8. Your eyes may or may not close at this point. If they feel like closing, let them close and continue to feel as if the crystal is around you. If your eyes remain open, still feel as if your inside the crystal. Whether your eyes are open or closed a point is reached where there is no difference between you and the crystal. There is only crystal and just what you are seeing. You are now in an altered state of consciousness or trance state.
9. You may at this point find yourself feeling compelled to do something. This may be to breathe in certain ways, move energy in a particular pattern in your body, or to work with the crystal in a different manner. Trust yourself and let this compulsion guide you. Your body may almost involuntarily assume different positions. Let it. You may find yourself making sounds. Feel free to allow this to happen. At the same time there is no necessity to force it to happen. Successful crystal ball reading doesn’t depend on any of these occurrences.
10. Now either ask specific questions in your mind or use your will to guide you to a specific locations that you mentally view. If you haven’t a specific question, mentally refer to your more general purpose in crystal reading at the time. Then let impressions come and go. Don’t hang onto them but communicate them to another or out loud into a tape recorder. Let the impressions flow through you. Continue to communicate what you see until you have a feeling of being finished.
11. When you are through, remain with the crystal for a few minutes. Release any tension. You will feel a sensation of floating inside the crystal ball. Varied impressions may come and go. Just watch them pass. In this space are all possibilities, all assistance, all knowledge, and all wisdom.
12. Now, after enjoying this space for a while, slowly begin to back out of the ball. Start to feel edges around yourself while you continue to gaze. Have a feeling of backing up as you become more aware of the edges around the ball. If you followed a certain route into the ball, retrace it. Continue until you see the ball in front of you. Become aware of the surface on which you sit. Be aware of your breathing. If your eyes are open, let go of the diffused vision and bring it back to normal. If your eyes are closed, slowly open them. Now stretch and shake yourself a little until you feel completely in your everyday consciousness.
13. Ground yourself. Next, clear your crystal ball, the other single-terminated crystal or crystal wand, yourself, and the room you are in.
14. If you like, cover your ball with cloth or put it in a pouch. Store it in a special place.
You can also use a bowl of water to gaze into, and follow the same directions above.


Scrying involves focusing on some kind of reflective surface such as a crystal or a bowl of water, glass, or mirror. John Dee, a Victorian-era mage, used a concave black mirror. You have to develop a meditative mind in which you also feel yourself as an energy field. Then you observe and note impressions that arise in your mind while gazing at the scrying object (the same goes for card reading or other forms of divination or remote viewing). It is not that you will “see” images in the scrying device; you will see them in the mind’s eye but the device helps you focus. Ability comes with practice.
Someone wrote a long tract about getting into the right mind state for scrying and made references to trance and spontaneous movement and glossolalia. This is a phenomenon that occurs in deep states of meditation and is related, in part, to electrical discharges in the brain. If and when you get to the stage when those things occur, you don’t care about scrying; you’re in an elevated meditational state of consciousness and are throwing off nervous subconscious energy.


you only project what your mind wants you to see.
