What Is a Pendulum?
The pendulum is a very simple tool that allows the user to tune into their intuitive powers. It acts as a receiver and transmitter of information and moves in different ways in response to yes or no type questions. A pendulum is basically any symmetrical, weighted object hung from a single chain or cord. Never made using any magnetic materials most pendulums are made with a crystal. You can make your own using something like a favorite trinket, a bead, or anything symmetrical.
Beyond the simple ‘yes’ or ‘no’ questions you can get help in answering using your pendulum, here are a few other very useful ways to use one:
• Healing purposes and identifying allergies.
• To cleanse and dispel negativity in a room.
• To help you find lost objects or pets.
• To find water or ley lines (dowsing rods are often used for this too, which work in a
similar way to a pendulum).
How to work with a Pendulum
• Choose a pendulum that resonates with you. How? Does it feel energetic to you when you hold it? Does it respond when you ask it a question or just hang there? Sometimes a pendulum chooses you too. As with all new crystals, it is advised to first cleanse and charge it with your own energy. This way it is attuned to YOU. To do this, leave it in the sunlight for 24 hours before you begin using it.
• Get familiar with how your pendulum responds. Ask your pendulum to show you a “yes”, a “no”, and an “I don’t know” if you’d like. For me, using my favorite pendulum ‘Yes’ is a clockwise circle, and ‘No’ is a counterclockwise circle. This is not always the case, and can change with the pendulum too, so be sure to always ask!
• Ask questions that can be answered with a simple yes or no. Multiple choice questions won’t work when asking your pendulum. You may need to ask a few sets of questions to get the answers you are seeking. Ex: Should I do ‘this’ or ‘that’? – is multiple choice. Ask instead: Should I do ‘this’? – (a clear yes or no) or Should I do ‘that’? to get your answer. Your questions need to be simple and specific for you to get a clear answer.
• Always ask mindfully and with your best interest at heart. Use “Is it in my best interest to….” as opposed to “Is it OK for me to….” Otherwise, you may get a ‘yes’ even if it is not in your best interest.
• Ask questions that you are not invested in the outcome. If you have an emotional attachment to the outcome you will probably not get a clear answer. Start by asking questions about what to wear or other neutral questions, you will get clearer answers.
• Practice, practice, practice! And have fun!
One of my favorite ways I would practice with my pendulum was to play a sort of scavenger hunt to locate something missing. One example: A roommate years ago lost hr keys. Instead of frantically flipping over couch cushions, I decided to ask my pendulum to help. I broke it down into rooms of the house. Was it in this room? I asked until I got a yes. Then asked if it was near the table? This chair? We were able to locate her keys fairly quickly using this method.
**Please Note: It is important to protect your energy in certain uses! Simply using the pendulum as a tool for answering simple questions or taping into your intuitive choosing does not require you to do this. Its only important if you are asking for guidance from particular guides or dispelling negative energy. I highly recommend that if you are going to use this tool to tap into any spiritual guides, that you do so before you begin. You can ask for protection simply by visualizing white light surrounding you while you ask for divine protection. Using the MAPS protocol for coning is my method, taught to me by Diana, which I always use before any sort of open channeled communication with guides or other nature entities, such as during the flower essence making process.
