Pendulums and Crystal Balls Can Be Used During Psychic Readings.
Casting stones and crystals are used in a similar way. Fortune tellers in movies are often shown as possessing crystal balls that operate as windows, showing scenes of what may happen as if on a television. This is not how they behave in reality. The crystal ball is used as a focal point for divination. Amethyst balls are of a shade that serves to unlock the mind in order to receive universal intellect. Scrying is the Wicca term for gazing into crystal balls.
Keep your mind blank and stare into the crystal ball. This is the best way to get the most out of scrying. While in a relaxed state focus on the question at hand, if you are fully relaxed and your mind is open, you will see an image in your mind or hear the answer in your head. Some psychic readers have actually reported seeing images within their crystal balls. The use of large stones can sometimes be applied in various sorts of divination.
Pendulums can be an invaluable tool used for yes or no answers. A weight hung by a string or a chain is called a pendulum. The psychic reader will hold the pendulum loosely over the center of a paper or cloth that has been divided into areas for yes and no. They themselves don’t move the pendulum, but they make an inquiry and the pendulum starts to sway to and fro, signaling a response.
A rendition of this divination has been used on pregnant women for many years. A needle is threaded and the psychic person will hold the thread over the abdomen of the pregnant woman and ask what the baby will be. The best way to tell if the baby is a boy is if the needle swings side to side or back and forth. If the needle swings in a circle of it’s own volition, the baby will be a girl.
