This is similar to the first one, with a little variations. Try whichever one works for you.
Before you use your crystal ball for the first time, you should cleanse it. Cleansing can be done by holding the Crystal Ball under running water and visualizing all negative energy rinsing down the drain with the water.
You can also cleanse your Crystal Ball by burying it in earth for a few hours, or sprinkling it with holy water, or passing it through incense smoke. The key is to visualize negativity being drawn away from your Crystal Ball and dissipating in the smoke or earth or water.
The following is a very effective way to both cleanse and charge your crystal ball and any other tools used for the Craft.
Imagine a ball of white light in your Heart Chakra. Focus for a moment on the idea of cleansing and purification; in this way you charge the light with cleansing power.
Now imagine white light flowing from your Heart Chakra down through your arms. See this light flowing through your hands and into the Crystal Ball. Concentrate on removing all extraneous energies from the Crysta Balll, and visualize the light shooting out of the Crystal Ball in the form of golden-yellow flame.
As the light flows through the Crystal Ball you could say something like:
I cleanse and purify this Crystal Ball, removing from it any negativity which may lie within!”
Continue to visualize the flame shooting out through the Crystal Ball, until the Crystal Ball “feels” clean.
To bless and consecrate your Crystal Ball again focus upon the ball of white light in your Heart Chakra. Allow the light to flow down through your arms and through your hands, into the crysta balll. Visualize the energy flowing through the crystal ball and shooting out in the form of blue-white light. Say something like:
I bless and consecrate this Crystal Ball to my use!
Continue to focus blue-white energy through the crystal ball for several moments. When you feel that you have done enough, stop, and put your Crystal Ball away.
You have now cleansed and consecrated your Crystal Ball. You may use this same technique whenever you feel that it needs cleaning.
Your Crystal Ball is attuned to the energy of the Moon. During the 3 nights of the Full Moon many of us place our crystal balls outside in the moonlight for a few hours to recharge and energize them. Crystal Balls should never be exposed to sunlight once they have been cleansed and consecrated.
Crystal Ball Reading
Successful scrying depends on mood and atmosphere. Above all else, do not force yourself into a reading session when you don’t feel like it. The results will be at best useless.
The important thing to remember is that you are creating an atmosphere. If someone walked in unexpectedly, they should instantly be aware that something significant is taking place.
