Pendulums are beautiful and mysterious artifacts that have been long utilized and admired for thousands of years throughout history. If you are on the magical side and want to learn more about how to use a pendulum, then here is a guide to help you with your mission.  

Step 1: Get Your Mind Ready

Before starting anything, make sure that your mind is clear, relaxed, and focused. Remove any distractions that could take away from your mindfulness. Sometimes lighting candles and playing non-vocal music helps.  

Step 2: Position Yourself and Your Pendulum

Sit up straight and keep both feet flat on the floor. Then you will want to grasp the pendulum in-between your thumb and forefinger while keeping your wrist arched. Make sure that your forearm is steady and then just let the pendulum dangle. 

Step 3: Program Your Pendulum's Signals

If this is your first time doing this, then you will need to program the signals for the yes and no answers on the board. You can do this by asking sample questions that you know the answer to already and seeing if the pendulum is accurate. A sample question would be “Is my name _____?” or “Is today Saturday?”  Position the pendulum board so that your yes and no answers align to the yes and no answers on the pendulum board.

Step 4: Program Your Source

This is where you will want to call upon your pendulum source to establish where you will be getting your answers from and ensuring that your pendulum is not using your subconscious mind. Either out loud or in your head, say the following: "I call upon the higher self to answer these questions. I seek only truthful answers, which are aligned with the highest and greatest good for all concerned." 

Step 5: Ask Your Questions and Wait for The Answer

Now, you are ready to ask your questions. Each question should be a yes or no answer and be as specific as possible. Do not ask opinion related questions either. Once you ask a question, be patient, concentrate on your question, and do not think about what the answer should be. Stay detached and focus on wanting the correct answer. When the pendulum swings, watch where it goes to receive your verdict. For reference, if the pendulum swings rigorously, it is a loud response, and if slow, it is a quicker one.  

Step 6: Clear the Pendulum

When you are finished with your session or are ready to ask another question, you will want to clear your pendulum. You can do this by touching the stone to the palm of your hand as a way to signal you are ready to move on. 

Pendulums are often used as tools for spiritual healing and inner growth. 

Pendulums promote healing with the process of dowsing  which seeks out invisible energies. This connects people to higher energies spiritually and can help locate any blocks in energy.

They are used as a form of reflection by asking questions to receive guidance, awareness, and understanding.

By tapping into our most hidden inner wisdom and most concealed of thoughts and ideas, we can create a greater understanding of ourselves, and of the anticipated flow of events in every situation.

Natural healers believe pendulum objects can help relieve forms of pain whether emotional or physical. 

There are tons of videos on YouTube to help with pendulum use, but it's best to let your pendulum become your trusty buddy. The more you use it, talk to it, carry it with you, the more energy and answers you will get out of it.

    • Choosing a Pendulum: It is important to allow a pendulum to choose you, rather than the other way around. Choosing a pendulum in person is the best way to realize which one catches the eye~ touching it and feeling a temperature change or a subtle vibration may mean it is the lucky one. If  you can't find one in person, look at all of the photos~ one will jump out at you~ the way it looks and feels seems right, then it's the one.
    • Cleansing the Pendulum: Cleansing the pendulum can be done by holding it under running cold tap water, Full Moon water, soaking it in sea salt, or setting a mental intention to free it of possible picked up energies. After cleansing the pendulum, carry it around with you to see how it feels and so it can get used to your energy.
    • Understand the Directional Swings: Pendulums swing in vertical straight lines, horizontal straight lines, and in circular movements. This can be done side-by-side, front and back, clockwise, counterclockwise, in an elliptical motion, or even in a bobbing movement up and down, which often indicates a strong affirmative action.
    • Define the Directional Swings: Assign each directional swing a "response" by first asking the pendulum to show you what certain responses look like. For example, start off by asking, "What does a NO look like?" and subsequently, "What does a YES look like?" Posing these questions to your pendulum will help define directional swings, which must happen before advancing to more challenging questions.
  • Pendulum Response Examples: Vertical swing signifies NO Horizontal swing signifies YES Circular movement signifies NEUTRAL
  • Prepare Questions: A question should be one that can be answered with a positive, negative or neutral response. Good Question Example: "Will I be offered the job I interviewed for this morning?" Bad Question Example: Will my pregnant cousin deliver a boy or girl?"
  • Set IntentionsIt is imperative to precede the question session with a prayerful request or statement. For example, that may be as simple as saying something along the lines of, "It is my intention to receive truthful answers which will serve the good of all concerned."
  • Questions: Be prepared to ask several questions in order to receive enough information to aid in the quest for thorough answers. Make sure to completely stop any pendulum motion between questions to clear any lingering energies that pertain to the previous question.
