Another way you can learn telepathy is crystal ball reading. Some people have great luck with this type reading in a very short period of time.

People who are learning telepathy through crystal ball reading do not have to use an actual crystal ball.

These include shiny quartz, polished metals, clear water, hot embers, a cup with water and the insides blacked out or just about any shiny surface.

If you do decide to practice reading with an actual crystal ball, there are certain things you should do in the care of the ball. You should not allow others to use the ball or even touch it.

The lighting in the room should be indirect light with it at your back. When reading you should not strain your eyes, but have a steady, relaxed gaze. It is okay to blink, but maintain your gaze. Some people when they are crystal ball reading like to cup their hands and create a tunnel that they look through.
