Speech is the mirror of the soul.

Mirrors go back to the old world of scrying and magic. They are also seen as portals to other worlds. It is also said that mirrors are windows to parallel universes, but I’ll leave that one for another time.
Seeing, reading, peeping, and gazing are some, but not all, names used for scrying:
The word “scrying” usually means to foretell the future using a crystal ball or other reflective objects or surfaces.
Scrying is an ancient art of divination, and it’s purpose is to receive information through our psychic abilities by opening our inner eye, or using our abilities to receive visions, messages and information from spirit or spirit realms.
Sometimes we will receive messages in words, stories, or pictures. Some of us experience movie-like scenes to answer our questions. Depending on how experienced a seer/reader/medium you are definitely helps with what kind of information you can receive.
Over the years, if you continue practicing scrying, you’ll start to build strong connections with spirit, but more so you will build your confidence as a reader.
It brings you closer to the universe, raising your vibrations energy and frequency. Therefore it connects you to everything, especially spirit.
So I’ll share a few techniques for those starting out learning to improve your psychic abilities:
Mirror scrying is still very much used in todays society, especially in the paranormal/psychic circles, or for rituals in the occult etc…
Some mediums/fortune tellers/occultists/etc use mirrors for different purposes. Some use mirrors for reading one’s future or for finding answers to individual questions.
Others can use it to summon darker entities; certainly not a practice that I’d ever recommend doing. I use mirrors like any tool used in the paranormal, and it takes time to learn and understand, and like any work with spirit, respect is a must.
Make sure you work with your guides and you are knowledgeable with your grounding/white lighting and protection to stay safe. Grounding and protection is key number one to learn firstly before scrying, or before any form of paranormal investigations.
I always do body stretches, before I scry, to release any tension build up in my body. You need to be in a comfortable and relaxed state before scrying. It is key, as well, to practice deep breathing to put your mind in a good place before any trance work.
Make sure you’re wearing comfortable clothes I have a black robe that I wear, but this is not necessary;I like to dress for my art, and scrying is my art.
It’s best to do scrying in a trance-like meditative state:
Clear your mind. Meditate, and remove unwanted toxic thoughts, clearing your mind for mirror scrying is key. Relax and breath deeply and slowly, concentrate on lowering your heart rate. I personally think this is the best way, but everyone is different. If you wish to incorporate music, incense, etc, please do.
A trance-like state is an altered state of consciousness. I believe scrying to be the best form of communication with spirit, and at the same time, you will learn to increase your skills and knowledge in so many areas of Mediumship. This helps you on your journey in all aspects of not, only the paranormal field, but in self healing and enlightenment.
Make your atmosphere comfortable. I use a dimly lit room with incense and relaxing music, and I always scatter white candles behind me so I have enough light to work with, but not so much light that it is over powering.
Make yourself comfortable and relaxed in your environment and surroundings. Different candle colours have different meanings for spell work (you can incorporate spell work with scrying, but wait until you have some experience under your belt first) I always use white candles, but everyone is different.
Some people take drugs and alcohol to go into a deep trance state of mind. Please take note (and I can’t stress this enough): this is extremely dangerous, and not a path you want to go down. Being under the influence of drugs like DMT or other psychedelic street drugs can be dangerous – not only adverse medical effects of taking the drug itself, but also working with spirit: you’ll more than likely attract lower entities and it can cause
