Explanation: A Scryer is a person who gazes at or into an object (usually a quartz crystal or even a black bowl with water in the bottom) to still the conscious mind and thereby allow communication with the spiritual mind. This is done to become aware of events prior to them happening. One of the most famous scryers was Nostradamus.
