Scrying Mirror

Items Needed:

  • Photo frame with a removable back and removable glass at least 8×10 inches
  • High gloss, black paint (non-aerosol)
  • Paint thinner (if recommended for clean up on the paint can directions)
  • Paint brush
  • Newspaper

Remove the glass from the frame and place it on the newspaper. Using long, smooth strokes, paint one side of the glass. It is imperative that there are no unpainted areas (no matter how small). Wait until the paint is dry, and replace it with the glass side facing out.

How to use your scrying mirror

Scrying mirrors are used to induce visions and answer questions. Before starting, make sure the room your in is as dark as possible. Some people like to place a small votive candle behind the mirror in a pitch black room. If you have a specific intention, chant it in your mind, or whisper it out loud over and over until you’re mind is completely focused on nothing else.

The way to use the mirror is to not look at but through the surface of it. Gaze into its blackness. Images, colours will soon begin to appear. If this method doesn’t feel right for you, I suggest skipping the candle and using a dark cloth to make a kind of tent covering yourself and the mirror.

Some people may experience difficulty getting results at first. It can take some people weeks to get results from scrying, so you may have to practice this a number of times. Be patient with yourself, make sure you are grounded and completely focused. Also, don’t just hope for visions to appear, expect them. Enjoy your journeys in this fascinating form of divination 🙂
