the Egyptions and Babylonians scryed by means of an oil lamp. The lamp
consisted of a stone which was shaped as a low open dish with a strip
of white linen coiled in the oil that had an endwhich hung over the
side of the dish. The Egyptians used clear oil made from oasis palm
plants. They believed that the clearer the oil, the better the results.
This is in essence, candle or flame scrying, watching the flame, which
can play tricks on your eyes in a dark room.
Ritual Lamp Scrying Techniques
Place your lamp on a table. Sit on the west side facing east across the lamp.

Monday : Luna
Tuesday : Mars
Wednesday : Mercury
Thursday : Jupiter
Friday : Venus
Saturday : Saturn
the name of the God of that day, chant a suitable invocation toward the
flame - in a soft voice - repeating several times. Your mantra may be
as simple as calling the God's name. Focus on the flame. You may see or
sense shadows off to one side (peripheral vision). Telepathically ask a
question. You may hear voices or see images. Flames create illusion.
This exercise is not for those with emotional problems
