what is a scrying mirror?

idk? Just wanna find out?


  1. A scrying mirror is a mirror often circular and made of black glass, used for Divination in a similar way to a crystal ball, sometimes in conjunction with candles or blood if you follow darker paths.

  2. the person above me has it right. I used a scrying mirror until I got my 2 crystal balls. It should be noted that any type of scrying will enable you to see things outside of the object more often than in it. When I began scrying I used a water filled dark bucket! It worked almost as well as my crystal balls! So one does mot need to have a crystal ball in order to do some scrying.

  3. Scrying mirrors are used to induce visions, and answer questions. Before starting, make sure the room your in is as dark as possible. Some people like to place a small votive candle behind the mirror in a pitch black room. If you have a specific intention, chant it in your mind, or whisper it out loud over and over until you’re mind is completely focused on nothing else. The way to use a the mirror is to not look at, but through the surface of it. Gaze into it’s blackness. Images, colors will soon begin to appear. If this method dosen’t feel right for you, I suggest skipping the candle and using a dark cloth to make a kind of tent covering yourself and the mirror.

  4. Black mirrors, or Hathor’s Mirror as they are called among some of us, are very useful tools for not only scrying but for just “seeing”…
    I can see my own aura in mine, but not someone elses ; also on a nice night with a full moon, just sit outside, mirror placed in such a fashion that the moon in her fullness is captured in the centre of you mirror and do a meditation with your eyes open and loosely focused on your mirror…
    You may be quite surprised as to what information you may see by doing this, and please note that it takes time to see things in the mirror for some, and yet again for others who are “tuned in” you may see things on your first use…
    In days of yore they were made from black obsidian, but you can get yourself a picture frame (fairly big one) and spray paint one surface several times with Matt black; when completely dry put glass back in frame and you have yourself a black scrying mirror..
    Blessed Be… )O(

  5. Scrying (also called crystal gazing, crystal seeing, seeing, or peeping) is a magic practice that involves seeing things supernaturally in a medium, usually for purposes of divination or fortune-telling. The media used are most commonly reflective, translucent, or luminescent substances such as crystals, stones, glass, mirrors, water, fire, or smoke. Scrying has been used in many cultures as a means of divining the past, present, or future. Depending on the culture and practice, the visions that come when one stares into the media are thought to come from God, spirits, the psychic mind, the devil, or the subconscious.

  6. Any mirror can be used as a scrying mirror. You dont need to buy an obsidian or black mirror.
    To make a regular compact mirror a scrying mirror, it should be cleansed & consecrated (this can be done by salt water & incense) and blessed or charged with the task of scrying. One way to do this is to gather some mugwort, charge the herb with the intent to bring visions, and rub the mugwort on the mirror in a clockwise circular motion untill you feel it has been adequately charged.
    Scrying is a method of divination that allows the practitioner to peek into the spirit realm. Sometimes you contact ancestors, sometimes you even get the gods themselves.
    The messages that you recieve through scrying are usually visual cues, or evn through words or phrases that you “hear” while in the trance state necessary for scrying to be effective.
    For effect scrying it is important to be in a dimly (candle) lit room with minimal to no distraction. sitting comfortably gaze into the mirror, your image may fade & shift to appear like someone or somewhere else. Keep a journal of your scrying activity, so that you can readily chart your progress. Scrying at the waning moon, and at the cross quarter days (samhain & beltane) tend to help the beginner find the right “channel”
    Best of luck to you.

  7. The above answers are correct of a mirror used . I am a natural Scryer and this is a form of visual clairvoyance , I can “Scry” just about anything now, trees, mirrors, faces, rocks , paintings, and on and on. Nostradamus was also a Scryer.
