Scrying first came to me almost 16 years ago, when I was pregnant with my second son. It came to me by chance and it came to me with ease. A few years after my son was born, I decided to turn my gift off; I can’t remember a specific reason for doing this, I just didn’t want to see any more.
There have been times over the years, when I’ve felt the shift beginning to occur and I have left the room in order to turn down the images that were sure to follow. Lately, I feel ready to scry again and I have allowed a minute or two here and there. With good preparation and grounding, I feel I will return to scrying regularly.
Last night, I set my bath up for relaxing and unwinding in, after a busy day. I poured my favourite oil blend in to soak away my aches, and I lit some tea light candles. The lighting was very dim; just three candles in a darkened room. I realised, after stepping in, that I had forgotten to push play on my favourite Medicine Woman compilation. Oh well; I would have to suffer through my inner thought processes, I decided, and so after 10 minutes or so, there was this…
Candle light, projected on to the white wall tiles: Holding hands; a nude man and woman. Then, the shifting in to the face of a native Indian man, his face lined and his mouth turned down. He seemed to be mouthing something. I looked gently on and decided not to turn away this time. More faces; one seemed to have the eyes of my grandfather, though the mouth and jaw were different. I saw myself, with dark sunglasses on.
After a little while, I let go and turned off. This was the first time I scried using candle flame. I usually use a mirror. Although last night’s occurrence was a chance happening once again, I have found candle flame projections a very good medium. I think I’ll use it again some time.
How about you? How do you scry, or are you yet to try it?
It has been months now, that I have been getting the name, Shahn. It keeps coming to me. I don’t know what it means yet. Last night, I got the name quite clearly and I felt it belonged to me. As Alice once said…curiouser and curiouser!
