Listing Information: Black Obsidian Scrying Mirror, approximately 2.4 inches wide. This gemstone "mirror" has been hand-polished to a brilliant, high gloss sheen. Excellent for scrying.
Scrying Mirrors are powerful and sacred tools where the shiny black surface is used for divining. You focus on a particular intention and gaze into the mirror, and you might get visions related to your query.
The practice of scrying dates back to ancient times, practiced by many cultures. One of the earliest types of scrying was water scrying, where a person looked into the water's surface to see an image, meaning or receive messages on present and future events. Over time this has evolved into using crystal balls and mirrors for a similar purpose.
Black Obsidian is often used for protection and healing. It's a potent cleanser of the psychic smog made within the aura and is considered a very powerful psychic protection stone. It can benefit you by shielding you from any negativity and warding off the bad chi.
HOW TO USE YOUR SCRYING MIRROR:
Before you start using your mirror, you'll want to cleanse it and charge it, ridding it of any old and potentially negative energies that have become attached to it. Then you'll want to bless it to add positive energies to it. There is a wealth of information available on the web on how to do this; we recommend using whatever method feels most comfortable to you.
Using a scrying mirror is best done in low lighting conditions. Place the mirror at an angle so that you can't see your reflection, and don't allow anything else to reflect in the mirror. It may be helpful to almost look past or through the mirror rather than at its surface. Your scrying mirror should be like a dark window or tunnel to nowhere.
Surround yourself and the area around you with a white light of protection before you start scrying. Set an intention for your session, or you can ask a particular question to which you're looking for answers if you wish. Start gazing into the mirror, getting into a state of meditation, and let your mind wander. Initially, it may just look black or grey, but eventually, you'll start to see colours appear and disappear. The images that appear may be very hazy at first. But with enough practice, they can become as clear as a movie or photograph. You may see actual visions in the mirror, in your mind or feel intuitive. Keeping a pen and notepad nearby is helpful to record your experiences and thoughts when you're done.
Practically, scrying can be draining on your energy at first when you're not used to it. So start with 10 - 15 minutes, working your way up to however long you wish.

To promote the longevity of your bracelets elasticity:
1) Roll the beads over your wrist, stretching the elastic as little as possible.
2) Take the bracelet off before applying lotions/sprays to protect it against chemical breakdown.
3) Try to keep the knot from being exposed. Keeping it securely inside a bead will lessen the stress that it is exposed to, making it less likely to fail.
4) Wear your bracelet on your non-dominant hand. You are less likely to get your wrist caught with the hand that you use to do less things.
To create positive energy within your crystals, you should cleanse them to increase the effects of their metaphysical energies frequently. This is important as their effectiveness for healing, or whatever purpose they have been programmed for may be effected by negative vibrations within the stones.
Each piece of jewelry is made with spiritual intention and will be purified, cleansed and blessed prior to delivering to its new owner.

All of our crystals are ethically sourced. Many of the countries we currently buy from, including Bali, Guatemala and India, support various artisan communities through their social responsibility initiatives. This is a form of fair trade, where income is being used to support a diverse group of small manufacturers and families. Most of our semi-precious stones and crystal come from family-owned mines passed down from generation to generation, much like a family farm in Canada.
Our minerals are purchased from suppliers with the (correct) appropriate mining certificates, which establish their operations as safe and environmentally sound. We work with partners in the industry who we can trust.
We are not responsible for lost or stolen parcels. Please keep this in mind when purchasing regular standard shipping vs upgrading to a tracked shipping option. Pictures are provided as "proof" of shipment. Once your package has been dropped off with Canada Post, we cannot track or provide updates on your order.
We are not doctors and cannot give out medical advice. Energy healing crystals should be used as a compliment to other therapies and not as a replacement for regular medical care.
