Want to know a little more about crystal balls? Here's a little brief history!
"The origin of the crystal ball takes place in Britain about 2000 BC. At that time, Celtic tribes were unified by Druids. Druids were polytheist and revered nature. They had a very important role in these ancient Celtic societies, as they were both priests, philosophers, scientists, teachers, judges and counselors to the kings. Druids may have been the first people to use crystals in divination.
In the middle ages, many diviners and fortune tellers (seers, wizards, gypsies, sorcerers…) started to use crystals to see in the past and predict future, especially in Central Europe. At first, crystal balls were made of beryl, a naturally transparent gemstone. According to ancient beliefs, this gemstone was supposed to have specific powers. Later, beryl was replaced by rock crystal which is even more reflective and translucent.
A long time after druids, crystal balls were still used by royal councilors. Dr john Dee (1527-1608), Queen Elisabeth I consultant, was known for his use of the crystal ball in his works. Dr John Dee was a scientist, astronomer, mathematician, geographer, but was also involved in hermetic philosophy and alchemy studies. Dee believed crystal would act as a communication device between him and angels." – The Crystal Ball
The art of seeing is known as scrying, this is when you see images inside crystals or water and they are meant as meaningful information. This “information” is then used to help one make important life decisions, this could relate to love, marriage, finances, travel, career, anything. When scrying is done using a crystal vs glass or water it us called crystallomancy. Crystals are an important tool for scrying because of the transparency and regularity of their patterns, their symmetry. Also, the energetic fields of crystals influence what the scryer “sees” on a very subtle and often obscure level. How it works is you ask a question and the psychic or seer looks into the crystal or glass ball to find the answers. The seer gazes into the reflective ball and goes into a trans-state to see signs inside the ball, this helps him or her tell you the answers to the questions you have. They are used to see your future, your past either in this life or another, or even your present life. Scrying played a key decision making roll for many powerful leaders throughout history, take King Arthur; he sought out the advice and prophecies of Merlin the Magician. And more recently, Nancy Regan, the first lady of then President Ronald Regan used psychics to help plan her husband’s domestic and foreign affairs. The use of a crystal ball has been a technique used by many cultures for a very long time, only some don’t need a crystal ball, some use water, smoke, clouds or any glass to look into and find what you are longing to find. Some cultures even believe that the messages found in the glass are messages from God and they interpret the Bible." – Live Psychic's Network
