Great crystal ball set, at less than the cost of a tarot deck!
"Look into the crystal ball, and tell me what you see?" With such cliched phrases made famous in countless movies, TV show, and books, the realm of crystallomancy, or the divine art of scrying through the use of any object crystal in nature, has always fascinated me. "Titania's Crystal Ball: Now You Can See the Future" by Titania Hardie brings back memories of my childhood, which was a very interesting to say the least. Having grown up surrounded by family and friends who were often superstitious and into the occult, gatherings at the dinner table or around the fireplace often involved ghost stories and conversations hinging on the world of the physical living, as well as of the spiritual, with a fortune telling or two thrown in. Crystallomancy, or scrying through the use of crystalline objects is probably one of the oldest and most well-known forms of divination in the world. At the forefront of this practice is the crystal ball, used for many centuries by fortune tellers, seers, and psychics in obtaining insight and wisdom to foresee future events and possibilities. It is also an important tool for artists, writers, and other professionals who use it to connect with their subconscious minds to help foster creativity, development, and problem solving. Those who are familiar with the crystal ball will tell you that it's not the flashy, glowing images popping out in lucid 3D as portrayed in Hollywood films, but is more of a transcendental experience of looking into oneself for answers through serene meditation and state of mind. Titania's Crystal Ball is the introduction for those who are interested in learning to use the crystal ball. This set includes a quality globe crystal, wooden stand and companion book. It's like having Britain's top white witch as your personal guide to the world of crystallomancy, and at a fraction of the cost for a crystal ball alone, this is truly an unbelievable value. I must also add that the ball is not quite large; it is slightly smaller than a regulation tennis ball, but it's still bigger than the one that belonged to my uncle. The wooden stand that comes along with the set is also less flimsier, ensuring that the ball doesn't accidentally fall off of its perch. In the book, Titania guides beginners through the rudiments of crystallomancy, covering such basics as gazing into the crystal through meditation, what to expect during your initial experiences, as well as the usual purification rituals observed in most other divination practices. Hardie also gives suggestions in how to interpret meanings of images users may pick up from the ball, although she encourages looking deep into oneself for any interpretations, because it is there where the real answers lie. Other suggestions for use with the crystal ball include contacting your spiritual guide, astral projection, transcendence, and keeping a journal off your experiences. Such keen observations are tantamount to the important work that experienced mediums such as Hardie have dedicated their entire lifetime to. The result of such loving devotion is this wonderful tool for connecting with the most precious resource available- the human heart. 5 OUT OF 5 STARS.
