How To Use The Crystal

The best authorities on the subject of crystal-gazing insist that all

experiments along the said lines should be conducted in a serious,

earnest manner, and that all frivolity or trifling should be avoided if

the best results are wished for. This, of course, is true concerning all

phases of psychic investigation, as all true students of the subject

know. All the authorities agree that the crystal gazer should sit with

the light behind his back, and never in front of him. While an earnest

steady gaze is desirable, there should be no straining of the eyes. As

one writer has said: "Gaze calmly at the crystal, but do not strain your

eyes. Do not try to avoid winking your eyes--there is a difference

between 'gazing' and 'staring,' remember." Some authorities advise that

the crystal gazer should make funnels of his hands, using them as he

would a pair of opera-glasses.
