Magic mirror: The black scrying mirror, or
magic mirror, is a powerful psychic tool. It can
bring the user hidden knowledge and clairvoyant
ability and can act as a portal to other planes of
existence. Scrying can be defined as the art of
gazing into or upon a crystal or dark mirror,
allowing the physical eyes to relax and letting the
inner psychic eyes begin to open and receive desired
visions or information. Consider the reality of the
Etheric(Akash) records, in which all ideas, actions,
influences and vibrations are stored. The practiced
scryer has the ability to "read" these records.
Aztecs used a black transparent stone for scrying.
In Vera Historical a big mirror is placed over a well
for scrying. Magic Mirrors - They enabled, it was
said, to see the present, the past and the future.
They are of great variety, and of great antiquity.
"Then from his secret Art the Sage Vizier,
A Magic Mirror made; a Mirror like
The bosom of All-wise Intelligence,
Reflecting in its mystic compass all
Within the sevenfold volume of the World
Invol'd; and looking in that Mirror's face
The Shah beheld the face of his Desire."
St. Augustine (in De Civitate Dei, Ch. VII, 35) says
that they were used by the witches of Thessaly who
wrote their oracles on them in human blood.
Varron claims that they are of Persian origin, the
Magi having used them for a method of divination
called Catoptromancy. Spartianus says that Didius
Julianus used them to know the result of the battle
which Tullius Crispinius fought with Septirnus
Severus, his rival for the Throne.
The persons who, in Rome, read these mirrors were
In the East these instruments were called Stellar
Mirrors. Pica della Mirandola had faith in them,
provided they were made under a favorable
constellation, and that they should only be
consulted when one felt comfortably warm, for the
cold harms the lucidity of their oracle. Reinaud
speaks of them in his Description of the Blacas
Cabinet. He adds that the operators perfume them,
fast for seven days before using them, and recite
sacramental prayers at the moment of consulting
them. The Chinese and the Hindus made theirs of
metal, concave or convex.
Muratori tells us of a Bishop of Verona who was put
to death because under his pillow a magic mirror was
found bearing on the reverse the word flore which
means flower, and proves collaboration with the
devil, since, according to St. Cyprian, Satan
sometimes appeared in the shape of a flower. A
mirror of this kind was also found in the house of
Calas de Rienzi. Catherine de Medici had one.
The shape of these mirrors was, as we have said,
very varied. Some bore the name of their inventor (Cagliostro,
Swedenborg, etc.) More recently they have been used
to fix the eye of clairvoyants or mediums so as to
put them into a state of hypnosis.
Cahagnet, in his Magnetic Magic, quotes the
principal mirrors as follows :-
The Theurgic Mirror - a bottle of clear water looked
at by a child and in which the Archangel Gabriel
replies by pictures to his questions.
The Mirror of the Sorcerers - any kind of mirror or
pail of water. The country sorcerer, standing near
the consultant, recites a spell and shows him the
reflection of the picture wanted.
The Mirror of Cagliostro - the bottle of clear water
is on a piece of furniture, and before it a child,
on whose head the operator places one hand and tells
him the questions to ask, to which replies are given
in allegorical pictures.
The Mirror of du Polet - a piece of cardboard having
pasted on one side a sheet of tin and on the other a
piece of black cloth. The operator magnetizes it
strongly and places it a foot away from the eye of
the consultant who, having fixed his eyes on it,
soon sees in it the desired object.
The Swedenborgian Mirror - a paste of graphite mixed
with olive oil is poured on an ordinary mirror and
allowed to dry for a few days. The consultant, whose
image must not be reflected (he stands at some
distance for this reason) looks into it, whilst the
operator stares magnetically at the back of his
head, and vision takes place.
The Magnetic Mirror - a round crystal globe filled
with magnetized water at which the consultant looks
carefully until the desired vision appears.
The Narcotic Mirror - similar globe but a narcotic
powder made of belladonna, henbane, mandragora,
hemp, poppy, etc., is dissolved in the water.
The Galvanic Mirror - it is made of two discs, one
of copper and concave, the other of zinc and convex,
both magnetized nine times in nine days. The center
of the concave is looked at.
Cabalistic Mirrors - there are seven, being seven
globes each representing one of the seven planets of
Astrology, made of the corresponding metal and
consulted on the appropriate astrological day. They
The globe of the Sun, made of gold and consulted on
Sundays as to superior beings and the great persons
of the earth.
The globe of Mercury, made of a glass globe filled
with mercury and consulted on Wednesdays as to
questions of money.
The globe of Jupiter, made of tin and consulted on
Thursdays as to the probability of success and as to
the devotion of domestics.
The globe of Mars, made of iron and consulted on
Tuesdays as to quarrels, lawsuits, enmities.
The globe of Venus, made of copper and consulted on
Fridays as to questions of love.
The globe of Saturn, made of lead and consulted on
Saturdays as to secrets, lost articles, etc.
The globe of the Moon, made of silver and consulted
on Mondays as to dreams and plans.
Scrying (also called crystal gazing, crystal seeing,
seeing, or peeping) is a magic practice that
involves seeing things psychically in a medium,
usually for purposes of obtaining spiritual visions
and more rarely for purposes of divination or
fortune-telling. The media used are most commonly
reflective, translucent, or luminescent substances
such as crystals, stones, glass, mirrors, water,
fire, or smoke. Scrying has been used in many
cultures as a means of divining the past, present,
or future. Depending on the culture and practice,
the visions that come when one stares into the media
are thought to come from God, spirits, the psychic
mind, the devil, or the subconscious.
Although scrying is most commonly done with a
crystal ball, it may also be performed using any
smooth surface, such as a bowl of liquid, a pond, or
The visions that scryers say they see may come from
variations in the medium. If the medium is water
(hydromancy), then the visions may come from the
color, ebb and flow, or ripples produced by pebbles
dropped in a pool. If the medium is a crystal ball,
the visions may come from the tiny inclusions,
web-like faults, or the cloudy glow within the ball
under low light (e.g. candlelight).
One method of scrying using a crystal ball involves
a self-induced trance. Initially, the medium serves
as a focus for the attention, removing unwanted
thoughts from the mind in the same way as a mantra.
Once this stage is achieved, the scryer begins a
free association with the perceived images
suggested. The technique of deliberately looking for
and declaring these initial images aloud, however
trivial or irrelevant they may seem to the conscious
mind, is done with the intent of deepening the
trance state, wherein the scryer hears their own
disassociated voice affirming what is seen within
the concentrated state in a kind of feedback loop.
This process culminates in the achievement of a
final and desired end stage in which rich visual
images and dramatic stories seem to be projected
within the medium itself, or directly within the
mind's eye of the scryer, like an inner movie. This
overall process reputedly allows the scryer to "see"
relevant events or images within the chosen medium.
Joseph Smith, Jr., the founder of Mormonism and the
Latter Day Saint movement, used magical stones
(referred to in Mormonism as "seer stones") for
various purposes. Scrying through magical stones was
a common practice in Smith's early 19th century New
England, and was practiced by several respected
leaders at the time. During his life he had at least
three separate stones that were obtained through
various means (one of which he recovered by looking
into a neighbor's seer stone and seeing the
location). These stones were initially used in
various treasure digging endeavors. Later, Smith
used two stones called the Urim and Thummim, two
clear stones in a bow that resembled spectacles, in
his 1829 translation of the Book of Mormon from the
Golden Plates (although much of the translation was
actually done using one of the stones that he
obtained earlier in life).
Though Smith initially used his stones to see hidden
things, their use later evolved into a revelatory
catalyst. Smith and others claimed that God
communicated to them through these stones. Two
stones, believed to be Urim and Thummims but
referred to as "interpreters" are mentioned in the
Book of Mormon. Smith claimed to have discovered
these ancient stones by aid of an angel along with
the Golden Plates.
