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.
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 Intentions: It 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.
