Scrying is one of the oldest known forms of divination. Scrying is a ancient art used and can be done in many ways. Basically, it’s the practice of looking into some sort of reflective surface such as water, fire or glass.
It is a method used over the years to cast predictions, to see passed love ones and to perform rituals.
To make your scrying mirror, you’ll need the following:
- A clear glass plate
- Matte black spray paint
- Additional paints (acrylic) for embellishment
To prepare the mirror, first, you’ll need to clean it. Use any glass cleaner or use vinegar mixed with water. Once the glass is clean, flip it over so that the back side is facing up. Lightly spray with the matte black spray paint. For the best result, hold the can a couple of feet away, and spray from side to side. If you hold the can too close, the paint will pool, and you don’t want this. As each coat dries, add another coat. After five to six coats, the paint should be dense enough that you can’t see through the paint if you hold the glass up to a light.
Once the paint has dried, turn the glass right side up. Use your acrylic paint to add embellishments around the outer edge of the plate—you can add symbols of your tradition or even your favourite saying.
How to use it
You can play music, light a candle or two, but be sure to place them so that they don’t interfere with your line of vision but no so that you can see your reflection within it so you need to sit at a angle. Sit or stand comfortably at the mirror. Begin by closing your eyes, and attuning your mind to the energy around you. Take some time to gather that energy.
When you are ready to begin scrying, open your eyes. Position yourself so that you can look in the mirror. Stare into the glass, looking for patterns, symbols or pictures—and don’t worry about blinking.
You may see images moving, or perhaps even words forming. You may have thoughts pop spontaneously into your head, that seem to have nothing at all to do with anything. Perhaps you’ll suddenly think about someone you haven’t seen in decades. Make sure to write everything down you see, feel and that comes to you. The symbols, messages or things you may have seen or got may not make sense now but they could in the future.
