Crystal Balls : A Primer
Oh, the crystal ball, an object that evokes images of strange women gazing intently into its reflective surface, staring, hoping for a glimpse of what is to come.
Crystal balls, however, are just another tool for divination like tarot cards, runes, pendulums, etc.
Not that exciting, I guess, but still, they are really nifty.
Crystal balls are usually glass, and they are fairly simple to use. All you need to do is dim the lights, find your center, and meditate on the ball. As you sit, you will begin to make out images, now what exactly those images are depend on who you ask.
Some will tell you that they are just projections of your subconscious, some say they are images conjured up by your brain which is being influenced by your intuition, and others say that, straight up, the ball is a mirror for your psychic abilities.
