A few months ago, I decided to see if i had any natural scrying ability.
i am great at interpreting symbols and so, assumed i would be able to work with a beautiful crystal ball i bought at a new age store. unfortunately, try as i might, i cannot see any images to interpret. i have meditated, prayed, burned neroli and cinnamon oils, made tea to increase intuition and even chewed bay leaves. Am i simply blind to what the crystal wants to tell me? or do you have any tips to help me towards scrying success?

There is nothing on your profile, so it is difficult to judge.
You seem to be looking for something that isn't there. What you first see by scrying are images of your inner self. Later you may see images of people you know; and some you don't know.
Your brain collects vast amounts of information. Often of things you are not aware of.
I learnt with a bowl of water. Perhaps you are having too much light on your crystal.Try it in darkness with just a candle behind the ball.
I am new to the site, so haven't added much personal information yet. i was told to only scry by candle and at night so no other light source would alter the images. my ball has never even seen sunlight. it might be that i@m looking for something i won't see, like you say. but im quite sure that i removed all expectation from my mind. i never assumed i'd see anything in particular, just that i would have seen it by now
I can search the future without using any objects. Sometimes if you have a strong enough psychic ability, you can do things without objects. Personally, I can go without, which I usually do, but if I find I'm not very focused, I use an object to ground myself.
What you can do to try and help, is to get into an altered state of consciousness. You can do this by smoking marijuana, if legal in your area, laying down and taking several deep breathes.
When doing the deep breath one, you should lay down in an area that you're comfortable in. i.e. your bed. Close the curtains, turn off the light, and just lay there. Take one dep breath, and hold it in for roughly two or three seconds. And exhale. Do this for about ten minutes. While doing it, visualize yourself being able to scry.
If it was done properly, you should feel slightly tired, but you can stay awake. Very calm, mellow. You can either try seeing the future while in bed, or with your crystal ball. I personally have done both.
if the ball didnt work 4 u then there are other ways like looking at trees when they have leaves. or pouring melted candle in water.
TIP:dont do it right away after pouring wax watch TV or something to numb your mind. then come back to it. google what the image means or use you 6 sense and see what works 4 u
