Black Scrying Mirrors
All scrying mirrors made by Dr. Celeste are custom order. Due to the individual nature of the product and the coordination with lunar cycles, delivery time can be 1-2 months. Each mirror is unique and starts off with an antique bubble glass picture frame dating from 1910-1950. The frame is then disassembled and cleansed in a clear flowing spring. The glass is prepared with paint and a fluid condenser containing an herbal blend, gold tincture, and essence of moonstone before it is consecrated on the full moon. The frame is then reassembled with the glass in the concave position and a felt backing. Each comes with its own black velvet bag. Because these are antique frames, no two are alike. They are generally arch, oval, or octagon shaped and average in size around 18″ x 12″.
In some cases, the frame comes with a photo in it. In these cases, if desired, Dr. Celeste will divine whether or not the person pictured is in the spirit world and if so whether or not they would be willing to facilitate clear vision in the mirror. If the spirit is in agreement, ashes of the photo are added to the fluid condenser.
The word scrying come from the English word “descry,” which means “to make out dimly” or “to reveal.” Throughout history, scrying has been used to divine the past, present and future, find lost objects, locate lost people, contact spirit guides, communicate with the dead, access occult knowledge, shamanic journeying, and ritual evocation. The practice of scrying is documented as early as 3000 BC. Scrying has often involved bowls or pools of water, and mirrors.
Mirrors made of obsidian have been dated back to 6000 B.C. Anatolia and polished copper circa 4000 B.C. Mesopotamia. It is reasonable to assume that these were also used for scrying, far before the documented history of the practice. It was not until between the first and third centuries A.D. that glass mirrors were manufactured and even then they were rare and reserved for the very wealthy. These early mirrors were made by blowing glass into bubbles and cutting off circular portions – thus making convex or concave forms as are often prescribed for scrying.
