How to Use a Pendulum
Using a pendulum is a simple way to receive messages from Spirit and they are very accurate, if used correctly. The pendulum is a tool that is used to communicate with Spirit through your higher self or your guides, and this tool can be used to help you to make decisions, especially about healing and your life's path.
Pendulums are wonderful spiritual tools. They can be very comforting to use once you learn how to connect with them properly. After you receive confirmation a few times, you will become very confident in using your pendulum.
Programming Your Pendulum
Make sure you select a pendulum that you feel a deep connection with. Once you choose your pendulum, you must program it to show you, "yes", "no" and "maybe" or "not sure". To do this, hold your pendulum over your opposite hand and make sure it the pendulum is not moving.
Ask the pendulum to show you "yes" then ask it to stop swinging. Ask it to show you "no" and ask it to stop swigging. Do this again and ask it to show you "maybe" or "not sure".
For me, after I ask a question, for "yes", my pendulum will swing back and forth vertically. For "no", it will swing back and forth horizontally and for "maybe" or "not sure", it will swing around in a circle. Check your pendulum several times for accuracy.
Once you understand how to work with your pendulum, you can play around and start asking it all kinds of question, but make sure you ask specific and ask detailed questions.
If you need answers and you don't have your pendulum with you, you can also use your necklace.
Cleansing Your Pendulum
Make sure to store your pendulum in a safe an sacred space. Cleanse it when it seems like it isn't working as well as it used to. Refer to our blog post on, Gemstone Cleansing, for different ways you can cleanse your pendulum.
