Behind the veils is a three week evening series delving in the magical arts and forgotten ways of knowing. We will suspend time and space reality and step behind the veils to the boundless worlds of the astral where symbology, mythology and alchemy come to life. This series is designed to strengthen your capacity to attune to the subtle realms and to activate your psychic awareness, expanding your capacity to dance between realities. These workshops are a remembering of the pathways that already exist within.
These evening rituals are deeply experiential- you will re-embody this remembering.
Scrying has been used for thousands of years by different cultures, scrying comes from the Old English word descry meaning “to make out dimly” or “to reveal.” There have been, and are, many purposes for the activity; to see into the future, to find lost objects or persons, and to track criminals, among others. Ancient Egypt used scrying in their Initiations, this included water scrying, ink scrying, blood scrying, dream scrying, oil scrying, and mirror scrying. One legend states that the goddess Hathor carried a shield that could reflect back all things in their true light. From this shield she allegedly fashioned the first magic mirror to “see.”
Scrying practitioners, sometimes called “readers” or “seers” have been used for a variety of purposes, including to predict distant or future events, to give character analyses, to tell fortunes, or to help a client make choices about current situations and problems.
Nostradamus is believed to have used a small bowl of water as a scrying tool, into which he gazed and received images of future events. This powerful tool is now being used for therapeutic purposes. Dr. Raymond Moody has utilised scrying techniques to allow people to access an altered state of consciousness so they can connect with the spirit world and departed loved ones.
The act of scrying is usually achieved by gazing, into or upon, a crystal or a reflective surface then allowing the physical eyes to relax, and letting the inner psychic eye open to receive desired visions and information.
The information may come through in the form of images, symbols, words, scenes or moving pictures. The power of scrying lies in the scryers mind’s eye, not the tool used itself, the tool is merely used for focusing your mind and freeing your third eye. Scrying is a powerful psychic tool which can bring hidden knowledge, clairvoyant abilities, and act as a portal to other planes of existence. Scrying develops your clairvoyant abilities and is especially helpful in strengthening the third eye. For centuries, many cultures around the world have used scrying techniques for divining the past, present and future, in this sense scrying constitutes a form of divination.
