Crystal Ball Reading

This post was written by Barbara Moore

I’m always interested in trying new divinatory tools. Tarot is my first love and I don’t think I’d ever replace it entirely, but I like the idea of layering tools and seeing how they work together.

At Readers Studio 2010, I took an extra workshop on crystal ball reading and really enjoyed it. A few months ago, we published Crystal Ball Reading for Beginners by Alexandra Chauran. This book has the perfect amount of information…not so much to be overwhelming but enough to give a good foundation…and a very approachable style.

If you are interested in exploring other tools, particularly crystal balls, this is a good place to start.

What other divinatory tools have you tried? Did you like them? Why or why not?

I’ve tried a few methods methods. I made a set of runes in sculpy a few years back, but I made them a little large, and they were hard to pull and cast with good results. I might try making a smaller set next year.

I had the previlege of attending the Universal Light Expo a few years ago and participating in Ray Buckland’s ‘So You Want to Talk to Dead People” seminar. He gave first hand instruction in the pendulum (which I really like- I treasure the one he gave me and I recently aquired one that looks like the One Ring in the Lord of the Rings Divination Kit, which also contains an oracle deck I have yet to try), the spirit board (I never like ouija boards-but the Buckland spirit board is a fantastic tool- easy to read -my coven bought one and we use it a couple of time a year, especially at Samhain)and the practice of occulememcy. Occulemency is not the practice of shielding your mind ala’ Harry Potter, but the practice of reading people’s thoughts bu staring into their eyes an looking at the pictures formed in the iris. I was a bit wary, but I found I could do it and have been able to teach some of my students to do it with varying degrees of accuracy.

So there you have it- a handful of methods I’ve tried across the years. I’ve also tried scrying with limited success. I can’t wait to try the Lord of the Rings Oracle deck and give runes a try again. I defintely will continue to use the pendulumn and the spirit board.

I’ve used the runes on and off for many years but tarot is my first love……….many times if i am reading for myself and i need clarity i’ll pull a rune and invariably i’ll get the answer i need to know.

Have never used a crystal ball…maybe i will!

I have a pendulum I am trying to learn to use. Sometimes it works very well along with Tarot readings, but I have found that I can often influence answers with what I want to hear rather than remaining objective.

I’ve always been drawn to tarot, but I do own a crystal ball and a pendulum… so I’m looking to involve more elements in my work. I think a pendulum would be really useful in my tarot work, especially when clients ask me a yes/no question when the cards are more interested in giving a “how” answer!
