The first time I saw this kit displayed--I believe it was at The New Renaissance Bookshop in Oregon--I passed it by, not knowing quite what to make of it. Then I saw it again and my curiosity got the best of me. I had to have one. I'm familiar with divination systems, and use them both in personal consulting and in my writing. The Magic Mirror has been a welcome addition, for everything from personal inner questing to helping me go deeper into a story I'm developing. While the author doesn't go into that aspect of it, anyone with the creativity to write a story or poem will easily be able to figure it out on their own. It's a great tool. If you're doing personal journaling, or creative writing, I highly recommend it. Oh, you might want to know the box contains a black mirror--the "Scrying Mirror"--and a very well put together book telling how to use the mirror. I thought it an amazing tool, especially for the price.

This kit comes with a very nice black mirror with stand, a decent book, and a CD (which I haven't even bothered to use because I've been meditating on my own for ages). The price for all of this is fantastic! The book tells you everything you need to know to get started, though none of the ceremonious things he talks about are necessary. I've only used it once so far; I just put the mirror (still in the box) flat on my lap while sitting Indian-style and looked down into it for about 40 minutes. The author talks about seeing smoke first and and then clouds and then color, but I was excited to see color on my first time and am hopeful that I'll be seeing images very soon. I think it will be a great way to get messages from my subconscious mind and to increase creativity for writing, as a previous reviewer mentioned. Seeing the future or clairvoyant images would just be an added bonus. If you want to know more about scrying and tapping your subconscious mind for writing, I highly recommend the book "Thinking Write: The Secret to Freeing Your Creative Mind" by Kelly L. Stone. It's what prompted me to purchase this and I'm really glad I did.

Format: Paperback
In his latest offering "The Magic Mirror", screenwriter and visionary John Nelson introduces readers to the practice of "mirror scrying", drawing from a background of over 20 years experience as teacher and student of metaphysics and transpersonal psychology.

Mirrors have always been a part of everyday life. Its exact origins are unknown, but it is said to have been used by the Greeks as early as 400 B.C. Their reflective property not only portray a representation of our physical form, but gives us a glimpse into our inner self by bridging with our subconscious minds.

"The Magic Mirror" by John Nelson is an invaluable tool that allows one to harness the full potential of the subconscious being through the ancient art of scrying. "Scrying", per se, is any form of divination by received messagess from glancing into a crystal ball, or a bowl of water as was famously practiced by Nostradamus. In modern times, the special "blackened mirrors" have become the preferred medium of choice.

Nelson's spiritual and metaphysical concepts are explained in an easy-to-understand approach, making it more accessible to newcomers while being relevant enough for even the most seasoned practitioner. The kit includes a beautifully crafted black mirror w/ stand, book, and instructional CD in an attractive box. The book is nicely writen, and goes into detail about the history of scrying, developing your own intuitive abilities, and how to get the most out of interpretations for everyday problem solving and insight. Nelson mentions about seeing smoke, clouds and colors, which I was unsuccessful in experiencing in my first attempt.

I've been divining for years so I was a little hesitant at first to get this book. Had it in my "wish list" for quite some time. There was something that kept calling me back to this set and as we all know it's always best to listen. The first part of the book takes you through history, energies and advises you to use them for good with regards to energy return x10 (things most of us already know). Later in the book I discovered several different insights that I found immensely informative which gave me that extra edge re; emotional and psychic support. I really enjoyed the book and the mirror has been entertaining.
