I found a glass marble so I thought: “What kind of witchcraft can I do with a marble?” For this week’s Thrifty Witch Challenge I am doing a scrying with a glass marble! It’s cheap and easy!
If you feel like the fairies have left you a marble and you’re struggling trying to decipher its symbolism or meaning, do this! It’s called scrying.
Light a candle and hold the glass marble in front of your eyes, between the candle flame and you. Look at the flame while you slowly move the marble closer to your eye.
At one point you will notice that you can see through the marble into the light reflected. Breathe deeply and remove any unwanted thoughts from the mind.
After a minute you will reach a state of trance. It’s okay to blink, but keep the focus. Now you can begin free association with the perceived images. The best way to do it is to record yourself talking. Look and say what you see out loud, even if the images seem irrelevant, this is to deepen the trance state. Keep doing and you will see a rich visual images on the glass.
If you found a marble, know that this is a sign of the spirit, of messages being delivered. Not necessarily of good luck or prophecy, but of awareness and bonding.
If you feel it connects you to a loved one, look at your marble every day and be reminded of this special connection.
Or put it in a pouch with some protection herbs such as rosemary, sage, or bay leaf and carry it with you.
