6 Ways To Best Use A Pendulum
You're probably going to become very good at using a pendulum
reading this article since it's an invaluable tool for gaining
information. It's also absolutely free to use, so your pendulum will
probably sit somewhere convenient and you can pull it out whenever you
need. Perhaps it will sit next to your trusty tarot deck for extra
confirmation on any questions about your life you have.
Pendulums, of course, consist of a weight, often natural crystal
although may be a different kind of weight, sitting on a chain or
string of some kind that can swing freely from your fingers. It may or
may not contain a fob that can be held in the hand as you use the
Pendulum Techniques - Using Your Pendulum
If you are unfamiliar
with using a pendulum or need a reminder, the following six steps will
help to remind you how to use it correctly:
1. Allow your mind
calm and take a few deep breaths to steady yourself and allow you to
focus. Be seated comfortably and hold your pendulum ready for use above a surface is usually easier. Position the pendulum by
balancing your elbow on something solid like the surface of a table or
chair. Let the pendulum dangle from your hand by 2-3 inches. You want
to remain relaxed and try to keep your arm fairly still although it
doesn't have to be perfectly still.
2. Ask the angels
to come in
and protect you as you work. In any spiritual work this is always a
good idea and takes just a moment to ask. You may want to surround
yourself with white light by closing your eyes and visualising it for
one moment. You can even ask for God to make sure the session is
protected if you wish.
3. Decide what signals
to use for your pendulum. This is how you receive your answer after you
have put it to the pendulum, and you will probably keep the same
signals you use the first time you use a pendulum.
For example, it swings clockwise (how the clock turns) to mean a Yes
It swings counter clockwise (opposite way to the clock) to mean a clear
It doesn't swing at all or just moves side to side without direction it
means it cannot give you an answer or the answer is not known. We do not
always get a clear answer so in this case you can try again at another
time to see if the situation has changed, or you can rephrase your
question and ask it another way.
You do not need to specify what your signals are every time you use the
pendulum. However, if you've not used it in a while you might like to
remind yourself and the pendulum of the signals so they are clear in
your mind. Do a quick clockwise turn and say out loud that it means
yes, then counter-clockwise and indicate no. This should refresh your
4. Choose your source
is the first time using this pendulum. You can ask for information from
your Higher Self, which is a higher part of your own Light Body, or you
could even specify your angels to give you answers if you wish. You do
not have to do this each time you pick up your pendulum, although
occasionally you might like to verify this to make doubly sure the
answers come from the right source.
5. Ask Away.
This is the fun
bit that we've been waiting for. There are a few ways to ask questions
and some ways you shouldn't use or else the answers will not be clear.
You want to make your questions specific and make them into yes/no
For example: Will I be successful in what I am trying to do (name
Will I be happy if I try this activity (name activity)?
Will this person say yes if I ask this question (say question)?
Questions cannot be answered if you asked: Should
I do this activity?
Your Higher Self or angels cannot specify if you "should" do something.
They do not want to tell you what to do but rather you need to make
that decision yourself. However, if you instead asked "Would this
activity work out in a success (specify success), then you have a better
chance of a yes/no answer.
6. Before moving onto
question, you may like to quickly clear your crystal by touching it on
either your hand or a surface by just tapping it quickly. You do not
strictly need to do this but it can help some people to clear away that
question from their minds before they ask another. If you forget to do
this step, do not be overly concerned.
Below are some common questions people often ask about Pendulums.
Are Pendulums Accurate & Correct?
Pendulums, if used correctly, are very accurate and correct. The reason
we use them is because they are able to give good advice, at least as
good as our questions are. Of course each person needs to find out for
themselves how they can work with their pendulum to get the best or
most accurate results. The trick is to keep trying and keep improving.
Your questions may be less than perfect as you start to use it, but
over time you should get good at knowing what you can and can't ask,
and your questions will improve. So do not give up on using your
pendulum unless you find an even better way, like for example talking
directly to your guides. This tool is worthy even if it can put our
fears at rest or make waiting for an answer so much more easy.
Are Pendulums Ever "Evil" Or Bad?
Every pendulum itself is not an evil or bad tool, and as long as you
surround yourself in good intention (or God's light) before using your
pendulum, it will be completely safe to use. It is a divination tool
much like other tools, i.e. tarot cards, so in itself it is not evil.
As long as you are not aligned with bad spirits, and you ask for your
angels to be around you, then negative spirits cannot interfer in the
session. It simply means that you bring through answers from a positive
