Scrying Explained?


When we stare at a central point for a prolonged period, features in the periphery begin to gradually disappear, something known as Troxler fading. But if this were to explain what seems to be happening, then we would expect facial features to gradually vanish, rather than having strange things appear. And as pointed out by Scientific American, if some visual information is missing, the brain deals with these gaps by filling them in based on expectations or experiences.

Has anyone done scrying on here?

John Dee had a polished obsidium mirror he used, I do believe people use water bowls to scry with as well, noting the information from the link it seems that staring at an object can induce all sorts of visions....has anyone been disturbed by the visions they have had when scrying?

I use several different tools for scrying. My preference is a crystal ball (I have a clear quartz one and a citrine one), although I have used a bowl of water with ink and incense smoke scrying.

I find it does alter the conscious state, (I feel the point of change too) although it took a while to be able to hold it, as the left brain doesn't like it. Yet I remember from about the age of 10 until my mid teens I could 'trance out' as my folks called it in any low light situation and I always snapped out of it with profound or paradoxical questions. I think I lost the ability during the stress of the exam period at school and once 'adult life' kicked.

I have scared myself on a few occasions, not from what I've experienced from scrying, but when I sensed everything around 'disappearing' I would snap myself back out (again left brain throwing a tantrum). It takes practice to allow yourself to relinquish 'reality'. Now I just allow myself to let go and have had some amazing insights and experiences.

Thanks for the info Pisces

it seems you had a bit of the troxler fading effect going on when everything around you started dissappearing, the strange face illusion effect seems a bit creepy though which is in the link Ronin gave...interesting stuff.

I tried scrying involving water and a mirror, candles, when I was about 14. I saw a woman and a girl with me in the middle, in a frame, like a picture.

A few weeks later I started working at a movie theatre with the woman and the girl. There wasn't anything explaining what the vision was to me, just the picture, so I was confused.

The experience scared me to death!!! For some reason I never tried it again as I got older. I do automatic writing and I can hear my messages, but I don't normally have visions.

I'll have to try again.
