When you think of a gypsy fortuneteller, chances are you imagine a woman in mystic clothing peering into a crystal ball in a dimly lit room. As she gazes into the sphere, she begins to see a glimpse of your future. She seems to go into some sort of a spell as she continues her monologue in her monotonous voice. You may wonder how it is that this magical crystal ball holds the information of your soul.
As you have learned earlier in this book, every psychic you visit will read differently. Always be aware of the ones who are not true readers and use their skills for their own gain. Always compare what the psychic tells you with your own psychic knowledge of your guidance systems.
The truth is that the crystal ball is only a tool that helps induce a self-hypnotic trance in the gypsy. The sphere becomes the window through which the gypsy sees, hears, feels, tastes, or smells the vibrational level of the client's soul. Just as Edgar Cayce read the soul's history in the Akashic Records, the fortuneteller uses her trance state to access essentially the same information. All readers will gather different images through their own special techniques, which they have developed over time.
The crystal ball helps you go into your psychic trance. To try it, center on the ball, letting your eyes go out of focus, and ask your guidance system to provide you with the proper images for the information that you are asking from your Universal Mind. The more you practice and pay attention to your natural psychic intuition, the more you will be able to define the type of crystal ball that may be right for you.
Choose Your Crystal
Crystal balls come in various sizes and in a wide range of prices. Some can cost over a thousand dollars or even more, depending on the material they are made of. For some of you, the energy in rock crystals — those made of natural stone — corresponds with your psychic vibrational frequencies. In other words, the crystal may help open your psychic energy centers and make your intuitive connection stronger. If, on the other hand, your frequency and that of the crystal ball are out of sync, it may interfere with your natural psychic ability.
A natural rock crystal is generally composed of a clear piece of quartz or beryl. It is believed that these substances contain magnetic properties that can help amplify your body's own energy field. The combination of the two energies is thought to help your connection to your soul and your ability to use your psychic gifts.
Different kinds of rock crystal have different vibrational levels. The best way to find out which is right for you is to go to a store that sells several kinds of rock crystal balls so that you can compare how they resonate with your vibrational level. If you are not affected by the energy in rock crystals, you may want to look at other types of crystal balls, such as those made of glass or Lucite.
Other Types of Crystals
A crystal does not have to come in the shape of a ball or a sphere. It could be a natural shape or one that has been cut or faceted. You may find a crystal with the right vibration for you that you will want to keep with you all of the time. You might have it set into a piece of jewelry, to be used as a pendant, earrings, or ring. You may find that when you wear, touch, or hold a special crystal, you are much more in tune with your psychic ability.
Your perfect crystal might not be a crystal at all. You might find a different type of stone that contains the right energy. You could even use a piece of metal, wood, or coral to help you get into your psychic trance zone. If you are sensitive to energy, the more you learn to work with it, the more in balance your psychic vibrations will be.
