The art of Scrying is sacred and old. Often practitioners of divination, fortune telling & foreseeing the future, would gaze upon dark reflective surfaces, such as the dark water of a well, or smoothed piece of Obsidian, this craft became known as 'gazing,' and is the act of meditation through a soft gaze, allowing thoughts and distractions to subside & the subconscious to become strong & clear. It is long believe that mirrors are a direct portal to the spirit world, allowing loved ones, angels & spirits to come through to deliver messages, warnings & spiritual gifts to the practitioner. During the Victorian era it was widely believed that the spirit of a loved one who had passed could get trapped in house mirrors, so at the time of death, families would drape black fabric over all the mirrors, to keep the spirit from getting confused, and proceed their journey to Heaven. Witch's, Shaman & the like, tend to cover or wrap their scrying mirrors in black fabric when not in use to keep the 'portal' closed when not in use. The art of scrying should not be taken lightly, nor should it be feared. It is a power that all possess, but it is a skill that takes practice. By surrounding one's self with protection before Divination practices, one creates a boundary of what kind of spirits will come through. By silencing the mind and allowing the spirit world to interact through the subconscious, messages, images & words can clearly present themselves.
