My name is SilverScryer, and I am mainly interested in spirits, as well as contacting them. I have only dabbled in scrying and I am not confident in it and only occasionally get results. If anybody has any advice feel free to reply!
Divination has many forms. Contacting spirits requires an open and aligned third eye. To contact spirits you can use a spirit/Ouija board which is the easiest way to communicate directly with spirits. This can be a bit tricky at first as you learn to use the board. I suggest having a main spirit that you work with when you use the board. I have my great grandmother as my go to spirit when using a spirit board. I know when she is talking to me and she helps to keep the other spirits in line. Other forms of divination like scrying; whether it is mirror, water, dirt, blood, etc., don't really communicate directly with spirits but allows you to help your third eye focus so that you can see/know the unknown. Since you are relatively new to the craft I suggest learning to meditate and work with your chakras. As you practice these read, research, and cross reference the basics of magic.
