Scrying, (pronounced to rhyme with "crying"), is a form of divination that enables one to "see" the future, or past / present by gazing into a crystal, pool, mirror or other reflective medium. One enters an altered state to gain access beyond a veil. Images often come in the form of symbols that are interpreted.
Scrying works along principle of the Ganzfeld effect state. For example, if you ever layed in bed gazing at a point in the ceiling until you begin to notice movement of images? Did you ever have to stand/sit in the corner as a child? While gazing at the wall before you suddenly become aware your seeing images? If you have, then you have experienced the Ganzfeld state. Images often come in this hypnotic state. Children are more in tune with this than adults.
As a child, I would be sitting in the corner and see images floating before my eyes. Many times I would draw on the wall what I was seeing. One day my grandmother happened to notice my drawings and asked me what they meant. I had drawn a bird on a limb, an envelope, and a firecracker exploding. I remember shrugging my shoulders not saying anything because I thought I was in more trouble.
She gently pressed further, telling me to look at what I had drawn and tell her what it meant. I looked back to the wall and instantly knew that the bird on the limb was my mother waiting for news from my father away in the Navy. The envelope was a letter that was coming, but when I looked at the fire cracker, all I could sense was great excitement and happy faces.
Low and behold there was the letter from my dad that my mom had been so anxiously waiting. It was postmarked 3 weeks earlier and taken long to get to her. Mom called to me saying that I could leave the corner and to come listen to what my father had to say in the letter. I remember the part about him missing us all and that if he could catch a "hop" to the mainland he would be able to take a short "leave."
After reading the letter, my mom handed me a sponge to wash what Id drawn on the wall. She said what I had drawn was a vision that some people call Scrying. She also told me that she would give me a writing tablet to draw in instead of using the wall! So far, everything had happened as I saw, except the fire cracker.
Later, while out on the porch, our dog started barking. I looked up and saw a man walking down our narrow tree lined driveway. Noticing the navy blue uniform he was wearing, it suddenly hit me, it was my father! I ran into the house screaming "daddy's home, daddy's home" at the top of my lungs. Everyone excitedly ran out to meet him. That evening while helping in the kitchen as mom prepared supper, my grandma patted me on the arm and told me that the "firecracker" I'd drawn was my dad coming home.
I come from a long line of Spiritually Gifted woman, and with their guidance and encouragement. I have been Scrying since I was 7 years old. Now I use a quartz ball instead of setting in the corner wall! I've found that Scrying is an important tool that works well with my inner vision and I enjoy incorporating it in my readings as often as possible.
