275-39 (Q) Will I develop any psychic power by looking into a crystal ball? (A) If there is ever held that only that which is of the Christ-making may be presented there. The crystal offers rather the concentration of the physical powers, and thus offers many channels for the entering in of many an influence; yet if it is held only in His name, in His right [rite?], MUCH may be received there.
Then, if it is chosen for a more perfect way, place the crystal upon
a background of royal purple and with subdued lights that would come
from over the left shoulder - and not from the front. Then passing the
hands over the ball or crystal, in such a manner as to cover the surface
with the emanations of the power that is raised from the physical body
by deep meditation, then look - look - and behold HIS face may appear,
HIS directing spirit may lead thee; and again may there be opened the
vistas of light that may guide others. And ever, when such is done, in
the recesses of the heart give the glory to the Father - and not to self.
16. (Q) Should a colored light be used?
(A) No. Preferably a six to ten watt light. Clear white.
