Scrying is the art of looking into a reflective surface to induce visions. Gazing into a crystal ball is probably the most common, but many other types of surfaces have been used. The girls who instigated the Salem Witch fears used a technique of dropping an egg-white into a clear glass of water and staring into it. Nostradamus used a black mirror, and some types crystal divination are done through scrying. The ancient Greek oracles were polished silver bowls filled with water which the visitors gazed upon. Many have also stared into burning fires to see the divine.
Scrying is a form of divination that is easy to do, but it does require quite a bit of practice before one can call themselves a master. It is always very important that the room you are using is free of distractions, and you must make sure that you are in a good mental state. Take at least ten minutes to meditate and breathe before you begin. Some find soft music and even aromatherapy (incense works well) helps to set the ambiance. You also need your scrying device. I, personally, prefer candle scrying, but it is important to try different devices until you find the one that works best for you. Take time to relax and gaze into your scrying tool. Look at it until your vision blurs and comes back into focus. You may need to do this several times before a vision comes to you. Do not get concerned if nothing comes during the session. It is also possible that your message will not come through until later in a fleeting thought, or perhaps in a dream. Read more ›
Have you heard creeks and bumps in the house? Are things getting moved around, and you don’t know why? Are you seeing shadow shapes out of the corner of your eye? Perhaps some strange events have occurred, like all the doors in your home closed at the same time. Or, maybe you were one of the really lucky ones, and an apparition actually spoke to you. Below I will list the most common types of hauntings and their terminology according to paranormal investigators.
Intelligent Haunting – This is the most common type of haunting that Hollywood utilizes. It is the essence that a person leaves behind when their mortal body dies. They are sometimes referred to as “earth bound spirits.” In this situation, the spirit or entity is usually able to touch and communicate with the living, often through signals and occasionally with a voice. Most often the person/entity has an issue that holds them here from unfinished business to mourning loved ones refusing to let them go. These guys can sometimes be mischievous, and not only can they move objects, they can interfere with electronic equipment. Read more ›
Clairvoyance is the art of seeing the hidden and often seeing future events. Most people assume that a psychic is clairvoyant, which is true most of the time. There are psychic mediums who strictly deal with the passed over, but we will save them for another discussion. Normally, when we contact a psychic we want to know what’s going to happen with a specific situation. We want to know how things will turn out and when that will happen.
It is much easier for a psychic to see what is going to happen than it is for them to see when it will occur. You see, on the other side, there is no time. All time is happening at once. How else can we see the future? Einstein proved that time is only a concept relative in the human mind. Read more ›
Imagine life on the other side, before you came to this world. You may be a young soul, or perhaps you are a very wise soul and have lived many lifetimes. You and your spirit guide are working on your lesson plan for your next life. You say to your guide, “this time I really want to learn forgiveness.”
Your soul mate is there with you and they say, “I want to go with you. I will help you with your lesson.”
Later after you were born and came to adulthood, you meet your soul mate. You two fall in love and start a relationship and have three children. Then you find out that your partner has been cheating on you since the day after your wedding day. Read more ›
If you are like me, when we grew-up, smoking was fashionable. Adults all around us were smoking cigarettes. I can even remember my doctor smoking in the examining room while discussing my ear infection with my mother. Cartoon characters and Andy Taylor smoked. I remember a cartoon with Heckle and Jeckle smoking and extra long (king size) Kool cigarette… talk about product placement! They were not even sure if smoking really caused Cancer. Even after advertising cigarettes was banned on TV, there were billboards and radio ads out the wazoo for the Marlboro Man. Remember back when we would “walk a mile for a Camel,” and “Tareyton smokers “would rather fight than switch.” Its no wonder that so many of us were lured into the wiles of smoking when we were too young to know better. Many veterans of the Viet Nam war, and even later have told stories how their tobacco addiction began with the military. Real men smoked, and non-smokers were pussies. Read more ›
