Crystal-Gazing is a very old divinatory art. The ancient Egyptians used it in their practices of divination, and, throughout history, we find traces of this magical art. It was brought back to popularity in the Elisabethian times by the learned Dr. John Dee, who was Astrologer Royal to Queen Elisabeth I of England. Dr. Dee hadcrystal_gazing no occult faculties, so he had to employ a seer or "scryer" by the name of Edward Kelly to look into the crystal for him. Dr. Dee wrote a book on his researches with Edward Kelly, which work is now classical.

Crystal-Gazing is one of the simplest and at the same time one of the best ways to develop psychic ability. It is not necessary, to have a crystal or even a glass-ball. You can use a bowl of black ink, It does just as well.

How to begin
The first thing to do is to either fill a bowl with black ink, or get yourself a crystal, or glass ball of at least three inches in diameter, larger if you can get one, and mounted on a slender wooden stand. The stand and crystal should be placed against a background of matt black cloth. Also have matt black cloth on the table. Try and make sure that there is no light cast on the crystal, no sun light or anything (this goes as well if you're using ink). If the outlines of the ball look a little hazy owing to the semi-darkness, this will often assist matters.

Now sit in a comfortable chair with your eyes about a foot from the crystal, or ink bowl. Make sure your eyes are shaded from any light, and you are relaxed in body and quiet in mind.

Now gaze steadily at the crystal, or ink bowl for a few minutes; do not focus the eyes on any particular part. Just let your eyes see all of the object you are gazing at. Try not blink the eyes more than you can help, but also do not strain them by trying to keep them open for any length of time without blinking. Do not let your eyes wander from the object you are gazing at. Try not let your eyes stare vacantly, but look with intent at the ball, or ink without unnecessary strain. Do not think of anything in particular during the course of this gazing. make the mind quite blank, at the same time do not allow yourself to become drowsy or the mind to become totally blank to the outside world.

At first it is best not do more than five minutes because if you do more you'll find that your eyes will become strained. If this is the case you can be sure that you have been gazing for too long. It is best to sit at the same time every day, while developing and for the same amount of time each day this will then programme your subconscious mind to associate the sitting with developing the ability to see imagines in the crystal.
