Rather than seeing images directly in the ball, psychics well versed in the art of scrying often use the ball to attain a clear state of mind and calm because of the symmetry of the ball. The crystal ball itself is just a tool for the psychic to use to help interpret subconscious or spiritual messages.
Different balls can be made up of certain stone materials, including crystal, quartz, amethyst, and more. Each stone has healing properties or features that make it beneficial for certain questions or situations. For instance, crystal or quartz balls resonate in harmony with psychic energies, making them useable for most psychics.
Rose quartz is useful for people who have questions about love, family, animals, fertility, self-esteem, their home lives, and children. Rose quartz should be read in moonlight or soft natural light, rather than direct sunlight.
Smoky quartz can help remove negativity, while obsidian is a spiritual cleanser and can be used as psychic protection.
Malachite can be used to reveal old grudges and health them, in addition to smoothing over painful memories in the past.
Balls made of Lapis, Dumotierite, or Sodalite are used for tuning into the psychic world, while yellow citrine, topaz, amber, and ametrine can warm the heart and see the positive side of challenges.
Crystal balls are also used for meditation and relaxation techniques. During times of stress, they can be helpful in relaxing both the mind and body. Crystal therapy follows many of these premises in healing as well.
Crystal ball readings tune allow a psychic reader to focus on spiritual or subconscious messages, images, or answers to specific questions. Their structure allows a psychic to read into the subconscious mind of the person they are reading to divine messages the spiritual world may be trying to get across.
