How to establish communication with your pendulum
Did you know that not all pendulums swing the same way?
Well, they don’t. Mine swings forward and back for no and side to side for yes…
- Hold the chain of your pendulum palm up with the chain loose and dropping off the side of the index finger.
- Over a piece of paper with a plain circle give the command to:
Show me ‘Yes’
Show me ‘No’
Show me ‘Maybe’
Show me ‘Cannot Answer’
- Note the direction of the swing after each question.
- If the response is weak ask:
Show me strong ‘_____’
- Test the response with a question that should have a strong positive response.
‘I am _____ years old.’ confirmation should be ‘yes’
- Repeat the same test question but lie.
‘I am only two years old’ confirmation should be ‘no’
Two schools of thought about the starting position:
Some suggest that the pendulum should be in motion when questions are asked. Others ‘still’ the pendulum before asking questions. My personal opinion is that there is less doubt about the answer when the pendulum is ‘stilled’ before asking.
I keep my pendulum in a geode half. Mine happens to be quartz so I don’t feel the need to cleanse it often but I did when I first brought it home.
CLEANSING YOUR PENDULUM:
Like any stone it should be cleansed before use:
Run under a tap while reciting:
“I cleanse you of all negativity and open you to love and light”
I usually repeat this at least 3 times - or until I feel comfortable.
CHARGE YOUR PENDULUM:
Hold your pendulum in the sunlight and repeat three times:
“May you serve to your highest purpose and potential - May you serve in love and light”
I talk to my pendulum before and after use. I tell it ‘thank you’ for answering my questions. I don’t over ask a question. If I am not getting a strong response I let it go. I used to use it with my medicine wheel to check for areas of strength and areas that needed my attention or what I should be focusing on.
I feel it has its own spirit and personality and I treat it that way.
