Using Scrying To See How A Genius Works

John L. Waters


Scrying is a technique used by a trained person to see an image which he or she interprets to be the image of a lost item, a future event, or some other important item which can't be found by using any other method.

To help scrying work, a person learns to gaze blankly at a featureless object such as a black mirror, the surface of a water pool, or a crystal ball. When the scryer is successful, images appear in the visual field. Each image grows out of a light which the scryer sees in the visual field. The scryer may report what is seen to a note-taker or tape record his or her own vocal report.

In a dream or in a vision a scryer may see images which pertain to his own special problem. How he relates these dream images depends on his prior knowledge and his intuition. The images he receives may need to be interpreted. If not, the images depict an actual physical reality removed in space or in time.

Scrying and dreaming are not by themselves intuition.
In a dream and in a vision a person hallucinates visual or auditory sensations. Later, intuition may use the dream material to get some new idea.

Intuition associates old ideas in a new and useful way. The dream itself usually requires intuition to understand.

One example of using a dream to get a new and useful idea comes from the pioneer German chemist August Kekule's dream of fiery serpents biting their tails.

The brightness and the intensity of Kekule's dream made it memorable to him. Several days later Kekule intuited that the benzene molecule might not be a long chain shape but instead might be a hexagonal shape.

Later Kekule told people how this dream of fiery serpents biting their tails helped him overcome his mental block and solve this specific problem.

Kekule had assumed that the structure of the benzene molecule was linear. So his experimental laboratory results perplexed him greatly. Kekule really needed his dreaming mind to help him solve this problem.

You might dream of, or see in a vision some event which transpired later. But you have other dreams or visions which are not prophetic. So how can you tell which one of your inner pictures is prophetic, and how can you convince other people that your prophetic dream is worth paying attention to? And what good is having prophetic visions or dreams, if no one makes any use of them?

Kekule's dream came when he was very perplexed. There was a solution to his problem and his problem was clearly defined to him. His many years of training and experience in chemistry had prepared him to study the molecular structure of benzene.

But to function better, Kekule's creative intelligence required his dreaming intelligence. And the chemist's effective intuition enabled him to use the dream material to solve his problem. If Kekule hadn't been so intuitive, he never would have connected his dream material with the solution to his problem of defining the molecular structure of benzene.

One naturally might think that the individuals recognized by many people as "true prophets" have often proven to many credible adults that they have developed their ability to scry or dream of events which later occured. In this way ones talent as a prophet would be proven. Otherwise, how can people accept the so-called prophet is truly a prophet?

But if we search the literature on prophets, we don't find this much scrutiny in people. We only find the people's blind faith in a charismatic person who claims to be a prophet or who is said to be a prophet.

Even so, it ought to be intuitively obvious that having a special talent for dreaming and visualizing and a talent for intuition is something very different from having a special talent for charming or fooling people.

A scryer's dreams and visions come as he is gazing into a black mirror, a crystal ball, the shining surface of water, or some other relatively featureless surface. The scryer has been trained to use some traditional "occult" technique to see or hear what others can't see or hear. This can be an aid to creativity, as when Leonardo Da Vinci often gazed at a familiar rock wall to get new ideas for his paintings.

Scrying helps a person access his own subconscious mind or unconscious mind. By regularly practicing scrying a person regularly accesses his or her usually latent or hidden unconscious ability. However scrying has often been associated with casting spells and other efforts to produce negative results.




In reality scrying is used by an adept to witch, divine, or find the answer to a perplexing problem, such as the subject for your next painting, or the solution to your difficult problem, as Kekule used his unconscious mind to help him solve a difficult problem in chemistry. And because he was so successful in pioneering organic chemistry, a great many people said that August Kekule was a genius. But how did the man learn how to so gracefully coordinate his many mental faculties?

By associating scrying with witchcraft and giving witchcraft such a negative image, the scientific cultures have prevented progress in the clear understanding of developing and using more creative inspiration. Furthermore, children who naturally scry are taught that gazing blankly isn't socially acceptible. The result is that very few young people ever are taught anything positive about scrying and the process of inspiration and creative genius remains a mystery even the most honored medical scientists don't actually know how to solve.
