Water Scrying Spell

Scrying means to see or seek hidden knowledge, and the element of water is connected with emotions, healing, and self-reflection. Use this simple water-scrying spell for emotional healing and guidance in personal matters.


  • bowl or vessel to hold water

  • water (or moonwater from a full or new moon)

  • essential oil (jasmine, lavender, peppermint, or frankincense are good choices)

  • optional: blue butterfly pea flowers


  1. Choose a bowl or other vessel to hold water. Typically, a brass or black bowl is used. However, you can use other vessels such as shells, hollow pieces of wood, or stones with concave depressions.

  2. Fill the bowl with water. If possible, perform this ritual at night or in a dimly lit room to enhance the reflective qualities of the water.

Tip: Infusing the water with blue butterfly pea flowers can enhance your scrying, as these flowers are associated with divination, spirit work, and dreams. If you use a lighter bowl, darken the water with a natural dye or an infusion of blue butterfly pea flowers.

2. Add a drop of essential oil of your choice.

3. Sit comfortably in front of the bowl. Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths to ground yourself. Visualize a warm, protective light surrounding you, keeping you safe and focused. Relax and focus on your question or intention. Recite the incantation and observe the thoughts and images that come to you.


"In water reveal what I seek,

Show me what I need to see"
