How To Use a Pendulum

The pendulum is basically an amplifier. It is a tool that helps you to access the collective unconscious and your Higher Self. You can get answers to anything you can come up with.

1. Choose A Pendulum:
Allow a pendulum to choose you. If you like the way it looks or feels, it is meant for you.

2. Cleanse Your Pendulum:
You may cleanse it by holding it under running cold tap water, soaking it in sea salt, or setting a mental intention to free it of ‘picked up energies.’

3. Understand the Directional Swings of Your Pendulum:
Pendulums swing in vertical straight lines, horizontal straight lines, and in circular movements.

4. Define the Directional Swings of Your Pendulum:
Assign each directional swing a “response” by first asking the pendulum to show you what certain responses look like. Ask: What does a NO look like? What does a YES look like?… and so on.
Pendulum Response Examples:

  • vertical swing signifies NO
  • horizontal swing signifies YES
  • circular movement signifies NEUTRAL

5. Prepare Your Questions:
A question should be one that can be answered with a positive, negative or neutral response.

6. Set Your Intention:
Precede your question session with a prayerful request or statement.
Example Intention:
It is my intention to receive truthful answers which will serve the good of all concerned.
7. Ask Your Questions:

8. Between Questions:
Make sure to completely stop any pendulum motion between questions to clear any lingering energies that pertain to the previous question.
