Pendulums are a brilliant psychic tool, they vary in price but are relatively inexpensive (Ranging between £2-£25) and are easily obtainable at your local new age shop and online, or you can make your own. They come in a wide variety of shapes, materials & crystals. Take your time choosing and find one that you feel drawn to (It can be helpful to go to a retail shop rather than buy online so you can get a feel for the different pendulums available and test them out). Remember crystals are all unique and some can be more suited to a particular scenario than others. Quartz, Amethyst & Rose quartz make great pendulums but as long as you love it, it can be whatever you want.
Connecting with your Pendulum
When you get your pendulum home, cleanse it like your other crystals. Connecting to your pendulum is easy, some simple ways are:
- Holding your pendulum
- Carrying your pendulum with you, in your bag or pocket.
- Sleep with it under your pillow or nearby.
- Feeling love and gratitude for your pendulum (it helps to choose one your really drawn to and find beautiful)
Using your Pendulum
First hold your pendulum out in front of you with which ever hand you feel comfortable with. Then place your free hand 2-4 inches underneath.
Ask your pendulum to show you "Yes" (you can ask out loud, or just in your head, but to start with it helps to ask your questions loud and clear).
The pendulum will start to swing (side to side, round and round, back and forth) However it reacts make a note of it as this is your "Yes" answer.
Once you have a clear result, Thank your pendulum and ask it to stop.
Now you can ask your pendulum to show you "No", you will get a different movement to before, once it is clear make a note of this as this motion is how your pendulum will show you a "No" answer.
Remember to Thank your pendulum after.
Test your Pendulum
Start by asking a simple question, that you already know the answer to. Like "Is the grass green?" and wait for your pendulum to show you your "Yes" response.
If you fail to get a strong response at first you can always try asking your pendulum "To please show you clearer/stronger".
Or try a question more personal to you, for example "Do I have a Labrador called Bonnie" (I do). We get stronger answers for things we feel more connected to.
Try it out, the more you use it the easier it will be. When you feel ready to, try asking some questions you don't know the answer to.
