Talking To Dead Is Normal

Seeing, hearing or sensing the presence of a deceased loved one is nothing to be ashamed of. On the contrary, it is a perfectly normal and often helpful way of dealing with grief. Sensing a deceased spouse is remarkably common. Let me tell you something through an example. I had a friend and her name was Mariana. She had a boyfriend which she wanted to marry after some months. The boyfriend had a cancer which was making him die very soon. Her boyfriend knew he was dying but hid it, ending their relationship to try to spare her pain. After he died, Mariana heard his voice apologizing for pushing her away at the end. She had partly blamed herself for his death and felt guilty. Hearing his voice helped Mariana to forgive herself. Why don’t we hear more about these experiences? The obvious answer is that hallucinations are often stigmatized.

Death has become so distant that it terrifies first-world humans and the best we can do is learn to manage an overpowering sense of dread. When a relationship is ripped away from us through death, it takes the heart time to let go. Sensing someone’s presence even though they have died is totally normal. Oftentimes, this presence can be comforting. If that’s something you’ve experienced, it’s OK, and it’s even a good thing. Perhaps you haven’t noticed the ghostly trend, but dialog with the deceased is fast becoming a national obsession. Best-selling authors are writing about it, TV talk shows are discussing it, and research scientists are studying it. For those who have done their homework, it has become crystal clear that a supernatural world does indeed exist, and invisible entities are speaking from the other side.
Hearing voices that other people can’t is a meaningful experience. Like dreams, they can usually be understood in terms of one’s life experiences. I am one of those who have only heard voices once in their life (so far). The day after my friend died in a car accident, years ago, he spoke to me. I realized he had just come to say goodbye, and it didn’t matter whether he really was there or I was imagining it. There are countless historical examples of voices where the person hearing the voice is convinced they have meaning – Jesus and Joan of Arc among the most famous. Voices, like dreams, sometimes carry important messages about a problem that needs addressing, such as trauma earlier in one’s life.

People mostly agree about the fact that dead people in our dreams are a very important sign, which shouldn’t be ignored. Dreams about dead people talking to us are very common. Very often, we are not aware the person we are talking to or is talking to us in our dream is actually dead in reality. We often dream about our deceased loved ones, talking to us, when we need some support and guidance in our lives, which come through their words, spoken to us in our dream.

Court Cards In Tarot Reading

The Court cards throw many tarot readers for a loop, so today I’m going to share with you one pretty straightforward and easy way you can improve your understanding of the Tarot court cards. Court cards can be thought of as representing specific people, specific personality traits, or specific approaches to life. Just like real-life people, each court card has its own quirks and characteristics – for example, some court cards are outgoing, some are reserved. Some process information analytically, some intuitively. As you may already know, tarot decks were originally used like any other deck of playing cards, although nowadays they’re almost exclusively used for divinatory purposes. One of the most visible remnants of their recreational applications are the court cards, or the King, Queen, Knight, and Page, which appear four times each in a regular tarot deck, once for every suit.

Each one is thought to touch a different area of our regular lives: The suit of cups rules our relationships; the suit of Pentacles (also known as the suit of coins) rules financial and practical matters; the suit of swords rules conflicts and truth; and the suit of wands rules creativity. Now that we’ve given some consideration to what the court cards are, let’s dive into a framework for understanding and interpreting them. This framework is based off a simple premise: each court card has a rank – in most decks, the ranks are Page, Knight, Queen and King; and each court card has a suit – usually Cups, Pentacles, Wands and Swords. Each rank has its own set of characteristics, as does each suit.

Page: They can represent children, teens, young adults and people with a young outlook. These personality types are still in a stage of development. They are coming to terms with their place in the world and their interactions with other people. The page is the “youngest” of the court cards. Has an explorative, playful relationship with the suit’s energies. May still have a lot to learn about the suit, but on the other hand, often interacts with the suit in fresh and unbiased ways. Pages always have their ears perked up, listening for oracles of the universe. They hear messages no one else in the Royal family can, and they deliver these messages to us through our Tarot readings. Pages have a playful spirit about them. Reminiscent of simplicity, and almost childlike qualities, the Page holds no threat or harm. These archetypes give loving service, with generosity equal to our willingness to interact with their presence.

Knight: the “teenager.” Prone to shift erratically within the suit’s energy – sometimes showcasing that energy in proactive ways, the next moment in unbalanced ways. They are still searching and have not quite defined their life-path. They are bold, intense and sometimes impulsive. They have not yet learned to restrain their extreme suit-driven tendencies. Knights will often appear in readings when the seeker is about to encounter them in real life.  The Knight has an unusual but extremely clever range of movement on the chessboard. The knight chess piece (as Knights in tarot) is strategically moved to the centre of the board – where all the action is. Its usefulness is dimmed when on the outside because it’s unusual mobility is limited. Knights are about forwarding motion, high spirit, drive, determination and almost wreckless demand for compliance. Knights need their environment to bow to their will. They aren’t quite mature enough to know not everything crumples to the application of force. Pulling a knight in your Tarot reading can represent a specific person in your life. This will be a younger male (living or physically deceased) or even a boyish female…but to be sure, the male principle is strong in this person. This person will be a driving force in your life.

Queen:  Queens are also introspective but they are also very interested in other people. Depending upon their suit, they are nurturing, seductive, campaigning and practical. Queens are passive – not in a doormat sense, but in an allowing way. They understand that the world is made up of pleasing and displeasing things, and all are part of the whole. The queen embodies the traits of her suit and radiates that energy from the inside out. She leads by example, through her intentions and beliefs. Tarot meaning of Queens is similar to King meanings. Queens is just as commanding, authoritative and strikingly intense in their ruling authority as Kings. Pulling a queen in your Tarot reading can represent a specific person in your life. This will be an adult female (living or physically deceased) who has a major influence in your life. As queens are known to do, she may be manipulative and cunning in her methods of dealing with you.

King: Kings are considered to be the most mature of the Court Cards. They have travelled through life successfully and are now at the pinnacle of experience and understanding. As people, Kings have full control over the feelings, emotions, thoughts and actions that form part of his personality. As such, they are stable and solid and are highly capable of directing the flow of their energy to achieve their visions and goals. They like to manage, direct and stabilize the energy associated with their Suit. He leads through action and by setting external guidelines. It simply means that this personality type is masculine, mature, active – in the sense that he prefers doing something to doing nothing, and expressive. 

While each court card is dominated by the qualities of his or her suit, each royal rank is also assigned an element. Kings are fire, Queens are water, Knights are air and Pages are earth. This helps to make the courts very three dimensional. For example, the King of Cups is a combination of fire and water, with water, like the suit, being dominant. This means that the King of Cups is predominantly feeling with the secondary King-like characteristic of action.

Your Personality through Tarot(Numerology and Astrology)

If you ever thought about tarot reading then you must have heard of those gypsies who do all such things using their special knowledge. We have seen many around us wearing traditional but beautiful Vargos to attract their client. Most of us think that these tarot readers’ follows only traditional ways to work but this is not correct. Today they use not only traditional ways but modern too. By which they can help you to learn a lot about you. Tarot card reading is mostly based on three approaches. First one follows Numerology. The second approach goes with the analysis of the suits (made up of Wands, Pentacles, Swords, and Cups), and the third by using the court cards (Page, Knight, Queen, and King). Now here we will go through all of them in detail and see its methods. First of all, you need to know about Tarot Cards.

Understanding Your Deck

The tarot consists of 78 cards and divided into two categories: the Major and the Minor Arcana. It is very necessary to know the difference between the Arcanas and their number.

Major Arcana cards are archetypal with big-picture on cards, depicting important moments of someone life path. These cards carry a deeper psychic meaning. The Major Arcana consists of 22 cards, numbered from 0-21. Minor Arcana is divided into four suits, these cards represent will (the Wands), intellect (the Swords), emotion (the Cups) and material (the Pentacles). The Minor Arcana are similar to regular playing cards but include an additional court card. Each suit is numbered 1-10 and has a corresponding element.

Numerology in Tarot

If you want to get more detailed answers through tarot reading then the best way is to connect it with Numerology. It will give you much information in detail which is not easy with Tarot alone. But here you need to understand the basics of Numerology first. Major and Minor Arcana both are numbered and giving the card a unique numerological meaning. This means that there are 5 cards that correspond to the number 1. These are The Magician card of the Major Arcana, and the Ace of Wands, Swords, Cups, and Pentacles within the Minors. The tarot is actually cyclical, so each end also signifies a new beginning.

NUMBER 1- One is the number of new beginnings, and in the tarot, it represents the first step on your journey.

NUMBER 2- This is the number of partnership and the choices we make upon our path. NUMBER 3- Three represents the growth of an idea, project, or relationship.

NUMBER 4- Four is the number of foundations. Practicality and structured thinking prevail, and the initial burst of energy that began with one has stabilized.

NUMBER 5- The lesson of five is perspective. Instability and change enter the picture. Five is the conflict that arises when the journey is underway and personalities clash or unforeseen obstacles enter the path.

NUMBER 6- The number six brings welcome relief from the turbulence of 5. Friends and helpers appear, and stability returns.

NUMBER 7- Seven within the tarot deals with having faith and patience on one’s journey. NUMBER 8- Number 8 represents progress and culmination. 8 indicate that success is at your doorstep.

NUMBER 9- 9 shows that the journey has reached its apex. With this number, the results of the work you’ve done are apparent, for better or for worse.

NUMBER 10- The number 10 speaking, represents the moment of completion before the cycle begins once more with the Ace. This is the number of endings and the moment before rebirth.

The Numbers in The Minor Arcana

There are 56 Minor Arcana cards in the Tarot deck – 40 numbered cards and 16 Court Cards.

The 40 numbered cards are separated into 4 Suits – Cups, Pentacles, Swords, and Wands, with each Suit running from Ace (1) to 10.

An easy way to get to know the 40 numbered cards of the Tarot is to learn basic numerology.

Here are a few keywords to get you started:

1 – (Aces) New beginnings, opportunity, potential

2 – Balance, partnership, duality

3 – Creativity, groups, growth

4 – Structure, stability, manifestation

5 – Change, instability, conflict

6 – Communication, cooperation, harmony

7 – Reflection, assessment, knowledge

8 – Mastery, action, accomplishment

9 – Fruition, attainment, fulfillment

10 – Completion, end of a cycle, renewal

It also helps to know a little about each of the Suits in the Tarot:

  • Cups (element = water): Emotions, creativity, intuition, relationships
  • Pentacles (element = earth): Material wealth, money, career, manifestation
  • Swords (element = air): Communication, truth, intellect, thoughts
  • Wands (element = fire): Inspiration, energy, enthusiasm

Astrology in Tarot

You can also get information about someone’s personality using Astrology. Astrologers believe that the positions of the Sun, Moon, and planets at the time of a person’s birth have a direct influence on that person’s character. These positions are thought to affect a person’s destiny, although many Astrologers feel that free will plays a large role in an individual’s life. When a person asks your “sign”, even if they don’t know it, they are referring to your Sun Sign, which is the zodiacal sign position of the Sun at the time of your birth. Sun Sign Astrology gets a lot of press. However, with a little thought, it is rather intuitive to feel that dividing the entire human population into only 12 categories (the 12 Sun Signs) is far too simplistic. The truth is, every individual on this planet is complex.

The subject of Astrology originally falls under the category of metaphysics and is based on the age-old theories of energy patterns, such as Reiki, Aura reading, Feng Shui, acupuncture and yoga. Actually, the gravitational forces of different planets have their own effects on the Earth, as well as on the people who live on Earth. Moreover, each of the 12 zodiac signs is a distinct combination of one of the four basic elements of the environment – Earth, Air, Fire, and Water – and one of the three fundamental qualities – Cardinal, Fixed, and Variable.

There are many things which can be added by anyone. But if you use Numerology and Astrology with Tarot then it will give a detailed report of yourself.

Reincarnation: Another Life, Another Chance

The subject of reincarnation has always created tremendous fascination and curiosity. Reincarnation eliminates the end from death, confirms the indestructible nature of the soul and gives a second chance.

Some philosophers have argued that birth is a single order production event and at the end of the term, all actions are cleared with acceptance. Approach is not only simple; it also shows birth as an accident. It fails to check the recurring idea of the picture of complexities, which is so diligently built by supreme power.

Hindu spiritualism considers reincarnation as a compelling device for the liberation of the soul by the bonds of karma. But within this school of ideas, there are different views. Advaita, however, points out that the supreme consciousness is pervading in the entire universe like an infinite sea and all innumerable manifestations arise like waves and drown within this temporal sea.

Describing these waves’ names, identities and titles and classifying them in some way is to discard confusion and ego. Therefore, there is no acceptance of birth or death in its progress towards the achievement of harmony with a single entity, soul or Brahma. Through the process of self-examination, to get the illusion of the past and to let the light shine, illuminate and explain. Know yourself and everything that is known is the main subject. Before considering another aspect, it may be instructive to reflect the germination of life. Organisms are born from certain biological sources under certain conditions. Life comes from life. All biological substances, which are in the nature of food, are endowed with life force, with the ability to create and reproduce.

How do the ants reach where the sugar is lying or kept? Do they have a radar? The little secret is that the sugar itself gives birth to an ant which eats it. Ants, perhaps, get their color from the amount of carbon in sugar. A piece of bread may decay with time, but it is the ancestor of the diversity of species. Birth, development, decay and rebirth are infinite series that keep nature in a state of balance. Upanishads have announced that consuming consumption is consumed in the process of consumption.

All living species are born from food and later become food for others. Rig Veda starts with this claim. How is the food produced? According to the naturalized Maharaj, friction between the air, water, fire and earth creates food in the space and the sense of consciousness is provided by the nature or the nature of the taste. The innumerable combinations of the three qualities give rise to a broad spectrum of living beings with clear distinctions of symptom, habits, personality, inequality and diversity. Reincarnation does not occur at any future date, but it is co-existing and instantaneous.

Arakana Tarot Cards

An ancient prophetic system is used by which future events are seen, assessed and attempts are made to address them. This method is based on the use of pictures and symbols. If we talk about its history, then tarot reading is the old teaching used for the prediction of ancient Egypt and India. Tarot cards are like a mirror in which a person’s personality can be clearly seen.

A tarot deck has 78 cards, which are based on the events of each person’s life. This deck is divided into parts then Major Arakana and Minor Arakana. There are 22 cards in Major Arakana. Arakana is derived from the word arcana. If we understand the basic meaning of Major Arakana, then it gets in the form of a mystery. From these 22 cards, Tarot Card Readers assess the main events of a person’s birth, death and love life. Major Arakana cards are marked on the following marks: Strength, Hermit, The Whiff of Fortune, Justice, Hanged Men, Death, Temperance, Towers, Star, Moon, Devil, Sun, Judgment, World, The Flowers, The Magician, High Priests, Empress, Emperor, Hierophant, Lover, and Chariot. The remaining 56 cards are called Minor Arakana Tarot Cards. Of these 40 cards is pure Minor Arakana while 16 are called Aralana Arakana. They are again divided into 4 parts – Caps, Pentacles, Swords, Vends

Tarot Reading helps us in all areas of life, career, finance, education, marriage, stress, health, spiritual problems, and everyday problems. If you want to tarot reading in a powerful and effective way, then the is a trusted name in the world of the web. Here you can find solutions to all your problems with the help of tarot cards. The cards shown here are so powerful that they can solve all the problems running in your brain, effectively. We can remove you from the negative situation with the help of these cards, enter a positive world and this is our identity as well.

Look at history, in the year 1971, Jean Baptiste used the Tarot Card for the first time as a way to know the future. Earlier in many areas of Italy and France, Tarot was used to play cards only. Jean Baptiste combined these tarot cards with astrology and identified four elements. They split these 78 Tarot pieces between “Major Arakana” and “Minor Arakana”. He believed that tarot cards are influenced by books of Thought, but it is influenced by ancient Egyptian texts. A questioner and reader are required under the Tarot. The person who asks questions catches the card. Then the reader places the card in an irregular order. The order of each card tells about future events. The reader understands that meaning and then answers the questions question. Tarot is only a matter of interest of the reader and the questioner because many people are people who do not believe in the prediction made by the Tarot. In the midst of trust and disbelief, you cannot deny that the tarot card is a mystical science that can be dubbed within you.

“Yes” I am a Gypsy Fortune Teller

I believe you have to do what you meant to do to get the best results. You need to do what makes you happy. I found my destiny as a Gypsy fortune teller a few years ago.
I was raised by a Romany Gypsy family. Yes, I had professional psychics in my family and many of my ancestors were famous readers. It is in our culture where it’s automatically assumed that every Gypsy child has the ability to be a psychic reader. My mother who is a reader says she knew when I was born that I would have the ability to become a “Reader”.

My mother usually never dreams but one night she had a nightmare, she saw my twin sister and I were sitting in the bathroom getting our hair shaved. I had a third eye on the back of my head which would close and ‘hide’ as she touched my head. She also noticed that I appeared to talk to the spirits. After sometime around the age of 9, I started using Tarot cards which were in my house.

Psychics usually think and see different from other people. To be honest, I always knew; I think probably because I had a twin sister to compare myself to, unlike most people.
I had a great aunt called Katrina. My aunt was a professional psychic. Her other sisters were readers, but Katrina was said to be an amazing reader by locals. She was the youngest to her siblings and she was still alive when I was younger up until I started doing the “Fortune readings”.

When I began using cards my aunt Katrina came to me. She sat in the living room. Silently I stood next to her, and I began to feel her looking at me. Suddenly, I became aware that she was reading my mind. It was not a general childhood fear; I could feel her looking deep inside of me. The weird thing about it, she was aware that I knew that she was reading me. She was just so powerful, I can remember how it felt. She both scared and excited me but I was amazed to know that she can read like me. I still remember when she finished, I stood there. She said to me if I want I can create an invisible wall to stop someone reading your mind

It was not very easy for me in the beginning because you read all of your seeker’s hopes, fears, and anxieties. It is more like a dream. You cannot explain this sense of feeling to someone who doesn’t have it. By using this sense you can also communicate with spirits. This sense allows you to know what Tarot card interpretation to use for each person. It is much more than “intuition”. It is more than sensing something but more like an experience
I was about 12 when my mother gifted me my first deck of my own and it was “The Jonathan Dee Tarot”. Then I started doing readings without pay. When other children were playing on the slides at parks, I was reading for people. I also learned to interpret dreams and the first person was my father. Actually, he was the first person who believed in my dream interpretation abilities.

I started carrying my cards everywhere. In my early teens (about 13 or 14) I bought so many books on astrology, dreams, Witchcraft, ancient civilizations and things related to that. Also, I was gifted my first crystal ball by my mother on my 14th birthday. Believe me, I read most of these books rather than the notebooks from school. I went to school then college and got some good qualifications; I choose social sciences because those subjects interested me. I decided not to plan a career as a reader but something ordinary such as a psychologist or anthropologist.

Straight after college, I decided to find a job with full of enthusiasm. Searching for a job was easy but getting it was a very difficult task. There was a meat factory near my town though it was an awful place with terrible working conditions I worked there for a few months.
It was like other people just went out and created their lives, and I just couldn’t move forward. Friends and relatives around me my were working away, buying houses, driving cars, getting married, starting families, going on holiday and living life. I didn’t understand what I was doing wrong it was like there was some force in the universe holding me back. I had experience, qualifications, training, had volunteered for charities, had a professional CV created, went to open days and still got nowhere. It was humiliating when people asked me what I did for a living. The job centre was my second home and I could tell my advisors felt sorry for me. However, things were about to work in my favour.

One day, in 2014, I sensed a spirit in my room watching me, so I asked it for a sign, “I just need a sign as to know what to do in life”. The next day I was on my way to the job centre, and I realized I was early for my appointment. I decided to go to the library. I walked into my local library and browsed the books. One caught my eye: “An Angel Called My Name” by Theresa Cheung. Usually, I don’t read books by other psychics but I got that book along with about six history books and went home. I decided to read the book and found a story which was similar to my life, in fact, her life was even more depressing. Theresa was a psychic and she too had readers as relatives. Unlike me, Theresa decided to go to university then the same predicament I was in; struggling to get a job. Theresa found employment at a mind body spirit magazine. The lesson in the story was that she couldn’t get any job which she applied for because she wasn’t doing what it was she truly was meant to be doing.

Theresa’s story moved me so much. After reading it, I realized that I was meant to be a reader. I thought back to all the psychics who had predicted it, my mother’s dream, my aunt Katrina, my interests, my cards being my only faithful companion, just everything. I set up business as a fortune teller and I started getting booked all of the time, and everything just got better and better. In the end, what is for you never passes you. I am also thankful and grateful to God that she changed my life.

Angel Numbers Angels Communicate

Angel numbers are powerful tools that provide the guidance on our spiritual path, help to achieve spiritual goals. It even helps to create the life with the lifestyle you want to live. Angels communicate with the person in many different ways. In fact, they encourage more than anyone can realize. They love and appreciate more when a person acts on their wisdom. Angels are always on board and helpful with anything that is positive, loving or kind, or inspirational to yourself or others. Angel numbers are just one of the pathway through which the angels communicate. These pathways can be any form like audio, video, and friends etc to attract one’s attention.

Angel numbers are recurring numbers that repeatedly occur in anyone’s life. The frequent repetition of numbers represents the predicted angelic presence that’s trying to attain the attention. The reason to choose numbers than the other forms of communication as a dreamer can easily remember recurring numbers that reflect into his day to day life. The numbers can be important dates like birthday, anniversary, number plates, clock etc. These repeated numbers can inspire for a new dream job, business, love relation and many more. Once the angels get the attention, the communication gets intensified and the guideline has deeper effect. After a person’s confirmation for his link with the angels always feel supported, inspired, and deeply loved.

Communicating with the holy guardians helps prognosticators to manifest their ability to foretell and hunch. This opens the portal to the spirit world and communication with various divine powers which helps to clarify the thought process. The clairvoyants experience a connection and reception of messages even while reading. Having a lots of responsibilities , guiding and assisting those who look forward to an intense proximity of communication added too. Archangels can be contacted by praying, meditating and also by clearly asking, there are times when there is no need to ask for, they are aware of it. Following archangels with different powers and importance are mentioned below-

How conscious am I when I eat?

Eating is one of the three vital components of life, along with breathing and drinking. Unfortunately, we tend not to treat it as such.

We have lost the importance of eating. It has become something we do just to fill the space in our stomach. We need to remember, be aware of the fact that eating, especially what we eat, is one of the most important, and necessary things we can do for our body, our mind and our health.
Consider the value you place on food. Do you focus only on convenience and price? Or do you consider the quality and nutrition? Some people believe that “food is medicine.” If you were to view food the same way, would this change any of the purchases you make?

Being a conscious eater means that you think about the foods you eat and how they will affect your health. It means stopping and taking a minute to either plan what you are going to eat, or at least ponder what is in your hand at the time and consider if what you are going to eat will benefit you. You don’t have to make the perfect choice every time (it’s OK to have a slice of birthday cake), but become more aware of the choices you make.

The Mystic Art Of Reading A Crystal Ball

When most people hear the word “fortune-telling”, they automatically visualize a bedazzled Gypsy or perhaps these days phone-mediums such the widely famous and appreciated Irish psychics at (a stellar phone service where the very best mediums in all of Europe can be found) crone rubbing over a crystal ball. Before the crystal ball, ancient wise people used bowls of water, glass, and shiny metal to divine mystic symbols. It is called the art of scrying.

While many gifted psychics still use crystal balls, it is important to realize that the ball has no magical powers that will tell people’s futures. Like tarot cards, it is only a tool that helps the psychic get in tune to spiritual vibrations.

What Is The Purpose Of The Crystal Ball?

In old Hollywood movies (think about the Wicked Witch of the West), crystal balls were like small video cameras that showed people and actual events. You may remember the iconic love fortune: “I see you falling in love with a dark-haired stranger”.

Crystal balls just do not work like that. They are not mystical cell phones that send texts and pictures from the future.
In fact, there is no crystal ball on earth that can tell your future. It is even a misnomer to call a psychic a fortune teller. Then why are crystal balls such an important tool in the psychic toolbox?

The crystal ball acts as a point of concentration for psychics. When they gaze into the depths of the crystal, it opens their spiritual eyes to see things projected from the subconscious. The crystal ball does not project images. The symbols and other messages appear in the eyes of the psychics’ minds.

Should I Try A Crystal Ball?

If you are looking for a divination tool, then a crystal ball would be an excellent choice. Just remember that some people may not have the certain gift to connect to the crystal’s imagery. Some seekers do better with runes or tarot cards. To try your hand at crystal ball gazing, consider these helpful hints:

Choosing The Right Crystal Ball

Choosing the right tool for divination requires respect and intuition. Do not just run into an occult shop and buy the first crystal you see. When you have chosen the right crystal, it will speak to your spirit and will just “feel right” in your hands.

There are different sizes and grades of crystal balls. Most novelty styles are made of glass or lead crystal. Glass ones are the cheapest, while you will pay a little more for the lead crystal. Many top-shelf crystals are made of natural quartz, and will command top dollar. Even though lots of psychics prefer the classic quartz, crystals of beryl, amethyst, selenite, and even obsidian have been used over the centuries. Antique crystal balls with rich provenances can cost thousands of dollars.

You are not on a spiritual journey to run yourself into bankruptcy. Find the right crystal ball for you that is within your budget. A gifted psychic can have sessions with a glass ball just as well as with a vintage quartz one.

For comfortable and accurate gazing, try to find a crystal that is at least four to five inches in diameter. Smaller ones may have charged energy, but they just do not work as well for your purposes.

How To Cleanse A Crystal Ball

A doctor would not use instruments before they are sterilized. Neither should a psychic use any divination tool without a proper spiritual cleansing. First, give your crystal ball a physical cleaning with some mild soap and some warm (never hot) water. Rub it dry gently with a clean, soft cloth. Never use commercial glass cleaners on your crystal. It can ruin genuine stone. Some practitioners will only use holy water to cleanse their crystal. The choice is up to you!

Crystal is a natural element that can keep residual energy—be it positive or negative. To wipe your crystal clean of this energy, burn a stick of sage around it and ask your spiritual guides and angels for perfect cleansing. This is an ancient cleansing ritual known as smudging. If you do not want to do smudging, a cleansing prayer will do just as well. Just like any tools of the trade, your crystal ball should be cleansed every time you use it.

Caring For Your Crystal Ball

Divination tools are personal and connect with their owners on a spiritual level. You should be the only person who touches your crystal ball. If it picks up energy and spiritual thoughts from someone else, your readings may be skewed. It may lose its spiritual charge and intimate connection with you. It is not necessary to be rude or weird about it. Just tell people for whom you are reading that it is like a toothbrush—only one owner. When you explain the consequences, reasonable people will understand.

Movies show crystal balls sitting on stands in the middle of the table, like a permanent fixture. You do not want your crystal picking up every stray and negative energy that passes. Gently wrap your crystal ball in a piece of soft, dark cloth and store it in a special box that is out of the light and is safe from the touches of others.

How To Charge Your Crystal Ball

All divination tools need spiritual charging before using them. It is like plugging in your cell phone to recharge the battery. Traditionally, crystal balls are charged in the light of a full moon. It should be put out every night afterward for three days. A monthly charging should keep it spiritually in tune. Never place use your crystal in direct sunlight. The sun’s lights weaken its spiritual magnetism. It should always be stored in a cool, dry, dark place.

How To Use Your Crystal Ball

These are just some classical suggestions for you to try. You are your own practitioner and can develop a way that suits you best:

• Find a space that is open and free of technological disturbances. If you wish, create a spiritual ambiance with candles and incense. Some practitioners enjoy soft music in the background; however, you may find this as a distraction. You can focus better on the crystal ball if you scry by candle light.

• After you have performed your chosen cleansing ritual, place your crystal ball on a dark cushion or soft cloth that is dedicated for that purpose. Be careful that you are working on a level surface, so the ball does not go rolling off the table.

• Say your chosen prayer or ritual of protection to your spiritual guides and angels. Ask them to join you as you seek deeper spiritual wisdom. Plead for their protection against negative energy and ask them to fill the room with light and love.

• Allow yourself to go into a deep state of meditation. Let your whole body and mind relax as your spiritual eyes open.

• Gently pick up the crystal ball and hold it in your hands. Visualize your questions and purpose for this ceremony. You can talk to the ball out loud, if you want.

• Put the crystal back on the table and let your eyes relax as you concentrate into the depths of the sphere. Your eyes may go in and out of focus as you go deeper into the spiritual realm

• You may see the crystal misting over a bit, and then gradually clearing again. Just relax your eyes and allow symbols and images to appear in your mind. Remember, the crystal ball’s main purpose is to focus your eyes inwardly. It is not a Magic 8 ball that will give you a message in its core. Do not be discouraged if you see nothing at first. Give yourself time and practice a lot.

How Do I Interpret The Things I See Or Feel

You will only see the images that you need. Once the spiritual vortex closes, they will fade and the ball will mist over again, and finally turn clear. Allow yourself some time to contemplate what you have seen and reconnect with the earthly realm. Thank the crystal for its messages, and thank your spirit guides and angels for their attendance. You can put the ball away in its safe storage.

Afterward, sit down in a quiet place and mentally review some of the symbols or impressions that formed in your mind. It may be helpful to write them in a journal or make drawings of some of the symbols. As a psychic, it is up to you to intuit the meaning of the information you received. Scenes may be symbolic and not have a literal meaning. Your gift will help you interpret the information you need.

When you feel more confident with your mystic skills, you may work with others. Just remember that you are ethically bound to tell them that no one can “predict” their future. Divination tools such as the crystal ball only suggest paths and urge us to use our own intuition to fulfill our life. The more you practice with your crystal ball, the better you will feel about using it in your sacred collection of divination tools
