I would like to start scrying, but I've heard that it takes a lot out of you, and I don't want to begin without being prepared.

To have myself protected in those times, would using a rose quartz ball for the medium on top of a crystal quartz rubbing stone (the ones that have the indention on one side) would work?

Hello Fyreflyes

Start and finish your session with a simple opening and banishing ritual. books by Kate West are very helpful for ideas.

How and when to protect yourself depends on your own religious tradition and associations with protection. Does rose quartz mean anything for you? Does it represent protection, healing, warding, or any of those things? If not, then it doesn't matter if you've got a dump truck of rose quartz.

Also, to clarify, what sorts of things have you heard about scrying? This is the first time I've heard it needs any sort of preparation - I was under the impression it was about as "dangerous" as any other form of divination.

Honestly, it was from another topic in here that was about what people use as a medium to scry. The link is: http://www.ecauldron.net/forum/index.php?topic=710.0

(P.S. what's the website to shorten websites?)

As to the first question, I believe rose quartz is used mainly for healing; usually emotional. Also, I would use the crystal quartz worry stone its on to keep the stone cleansed, that way the rose quartz won't be overwhelmed with whatever I will need help with.

What I'm wondering if rose quartz can be used as a medium, while still healing me.  Huh Would it even be wise to put a stone to more then 1 use at the same time?

I can't comment on the use of rose quartz as I have never used it, but I can comment on methods of protection and preventing the draining effect of scrying, to some extent.

Whenever I do any kind of visioning work, I surround myself in a mirror ball - literally, I visualize myself inside a mirror ball that is grounded. I program the ball to reflect all negativity and only let in positive intentions. I also make very sure I am very grounded, usually doing a grounding meditation first, and always wearing a copper bracelet.

I hope this helps,
