Crystals bring to mind beauty, light and the mystical. Is the image in your dream "crystal clear" or clouded? This article addresses clear crystal in the form of glass or quartz. Stones will be discussed in a separate article.
Scrying is one of the oldest and most well-known methods of divination. Typically associated with "Gypsy fortune-tellers," crystal balls are believed to provide a glimpse into the future. Today, scrying is also practiced as a form of meditation. If you dreamed of a fortune teller or crystal ball in your dream, focus on the message you were given if you remember it to interpret your dream. These symbols indicate a desire to know the future or may indicate anxiety about what is to come. Gazing into a crystal ball may also symbolize a desire to look within yourself for wisdom and guidance. You already possess all the qualities you need. A cloudy crystal suggests that they may be hidden from you at present.
Glass crystals, such as lead crystal goblets or a beautiful chandelier, may indicate a desire for wealth and elegance or for spiritual richness.
Crystals come in many shapes and sizes. Many are perfectly symmetrical in their natural state, with equal sides and perfect points. A perfect crystal may symbolze unity and wholeness. The crystal may also symbolize the spiritual side of yourself that is pure and focused on communion with the Divine. Crystals are believed to have metaphysical properties that "vibrate" in tune with human energies. These properties may strengthen physical and mental energies and can heal everything from headaches to self-esteem. If you work regularly with crystals, take their personal significance for you into consideration when interpreting your dream.
Diamonds are a type of crystal and in some cultures represent commitment and eternity. Dreams of diamonds may symbolize deep and lasting affection, relationships and friendship.
May all your dreams come true!
