If I asked you to think of a fortune-teller what are some of the things you envision? What kind of environment? What kind of clothing? Personally, the image that comes to mind is a dimly lit room, filled with perfumes and candles. A woman dressed is in colorful shawls talking in a mystifying tone, sitting across from me with a crystal ball between the two of us.

When asked questions like these or similar ones, most mention the image of a crystal ball. Unsurprisingly, crystal balls are one of the most identifiable items linked with fortune-tellers or, more commonly referred to now, psychics. Furthermore, this iconic artifact serves a greater purpose other than just “decoration.”

It is believed that the ancient druids of the British Isles were the first ever to use crystal balls. Scrying is a form of divination in which the druids used polished balls of beryl, namely, The Crystal Ball, to decipher prophecies and obtain mystical knowledge.

So why don’t you sit with me for a spell while we peer into the past, present, and quite possibly even the future as I explain all you need to know about the divine craft? Let’s dive into our guide on free crystal ball readings, psychic predictions, and the best platforms to find them.

What Exactly is a Crystal Ball Reading?

Excellent question, you read my mind. Are you sure you’re not the psychic? By the end of this guide, you may find that calling to the unknown is one you just may need to answer.

Let us dive in, what exactly is a crystal ball reading? At the very core of it, crystal gazing, or more aptly, scrying, is the art of “seeing” images in the crystal ball that are interpreted as meaningful. And even more specifically, this particular crystal is popularly known for the users’ ability to see visions based on current or future events.

How to Determine What to Ask

Now that we know for sure what crystal ball readings are, I suppose the most appropriate foot forward would be determining what to ask your psychic. And of course, the more imperative ones come down to the specific individual.

The more information that is given to your reader the better, so first and foremost it’s important to focus on the types of questions or pieces of information you’re willing to provide. Some example questions would look like this:

• What does the future hold for me?
• What advice can you give me?
• What are some things my inner child would like me to work on?
• What do the next six months look like for me spiritually?

And if you’re willing to go even further, more direct questions can likely provide you with a more concise answer. Questions such as:

• When will I find true love?
• What should my next investment be?
• Who do I need to beware?

Top Recommended Sites for Crystal Ball Readings

I asked a psychic about love once and they said they couldn’t see a future with me. Was it me or the reader — who can say? Fortunately, your future is likely to be more “prophet-able” than mine. To help you even the odds, I’ve compiled a list of some of the most reputable sites out there when it comes to psychics and, more specifically, crystal ball readings. If chatting in your questions are more your speed you might want to explore psychics that offer chat services.

Are Crystal Readings Real and Worth a Glimpse?

Well, we’re nearing the end of our time together, but no need to scry about it, we’ve prepped you with the tools and info you need to get the most out of your psychic crystal readings. And we’re wasting no time here by getting straight to the point, the most asked question: Is it worth it?

To be fair, answers to questions like these are always subjective, for the simple fact that the accuracy of the art is relative to any one or more person’s point of view. If you stumbled upon this guide, you just may be leaning towards seeking out your own fortune yourself, so take this as a sign.

All in all, once beliefs are set aside, what can it hurt if your interest is even the slightest bit peaked by this point? Even still, there’s something powerful in believing, so it’s as real as you make it.

“The Good” and “The Bad”

As it is with all things in life it’s important to contemplate “the good” and “the bad” when assessing the potential one particular decision may have. Here I have provided a detailed pro and cons list to help you weigh the risks and benefits of getting a psychic crystal ball reading online.

Pros

Ease of access: It’s as easy as it sounds, anyone with internet access has access to these sites and all their potential.

Numerous platforms available: There are countless sites similar to the ones I’ve mentioned here today. With so many outlets and resources, finding what you’re looking for is easier than ever.

A plethora of potential psychics: Each and every site is filled to the brim with readily accessible readers! And more often than not the psychics come with reputable reviews, certifications, and screenings.

Multiple forms of contact: Every site is usually equipped with its own unique features, but a common feature with most sites would be the many forms of correspondence available to each user.

Connections to a like-minded community: If you’re seeking outlets like these it is highly likely that you’re a believer or maybe even a participant of the craft. One of the best features about these platforms is the access to limitless knowledge, and even better yet for those who enjoy a sense of community, this is a good way to find like-minded individuals.

Cons

Lack of intimate interaction: It goes almost without saying how impersonal any reading can be without the direct face-to-face interaction with your psychic. And with good reason, for most who are versed in the art of divination, it is plain that for the aptest reading, it’s almost essential for an in-person experience.

Most free services come at a cost: Of course when in reference to just about anything, free is a solid bonus to any deal. Some may feel it’s not as authentic when a free reading is being offered, but that’s to an individual’s discretion.

To conclude our session...

There are many benefits to genuine crystal readings, especially ones from the internet in this day and age. With so many fun and creative ways to get in touch with your spiritual side, and ways to seek the unknown, the possibilities are nearly endless.

I was happy to provide you with a handful of credible sites to help further your mystic journey. We’ve learned so much together in such a short time and yet even I find myself yearning to learn more. With so many different outlets to these sites including downloadable app access, it just gives you all the more reason to try them out.

And hey, maybe this guide has inspired you to seek a different path. You might even want to invest in a crystal ball of your very own — I hear there is a future in it.
