What is a Pendulum?A pendulum is a weight suspended from a pivot so that it can swing freely
My First Pendulum
I am quite amazed how pendulums can be pretty accurate. I got a pendulum for my birthday. It was a crystal amethyst pendulum with a beautiful chain and a large bead to hold. It just looked so pretty.
I have not done any research to pendulums nor have read books on it. Except the random informations my friends would tell me based on there research. When I was younger, we uses some items as a pendulum to get a yes and no answer. I quickly assumed, this was the same. And it was!
I was really impressed when one evening, my mother came jolting to my house, asking me if she’d left her wallet in my house. She only lives few houses down from me. My mother is a skeptic on pendulums, but she has been looking for that wallet and she was desperate. I told her we can try the pendulum and to my surprise she paused for an answer. I asked the my angels through the pendulum to know if my mom’s wallet was in my house, and the pendulum swung ‘no’. I immediately followed to ask if it was in my mom’s home, and swung ‘yes’. Then I asked if it was in her room and the pendulum swung ‘no’. I asked if it was in her kitchen and swung ‘yes’. Without missing a beat my mom walked off and slammed the door. She didn’t even say goodbye.
The next day I texted my mother to ask if she had found her wallet. And she replied with a short answer, yes. Curious, I asked where she had found it. She replied “Kitchen” all cool and stuff. Well, I too was shocked, even though she won’t admit to it.
This experience was just the beginning of something beautiful between me and the pendulum. The fact that if my head was not attached to my neck, I probably have lost my head already. This pendulum has helped me find a lot of misplaced items in my house. It definitely got me intrigued.
Vibe With Your Pendulum
The pendulum, freely, will answer yes or no to your questions. If you use a pendulum with a chart of options made for a pendulum, you can get all sorts of information using the pendulum.
Picking out a pendulum is easy, pick the one you are attracted to, comfortable with and feel a good vibe about and trust that.
I keep my pendulum in a little pouch. I have friends that made jewelry pieces where it allows them to hang their pendulums as part of their necklace. It is nice to have a pendulum handy.
Start with playing around with your pendulum. Get comfortable with it.
You wanna hold the end of your pendulum with the hand that you are most comfortable with. Ask your angels, guides, Jesus, or whoever you turn to for guidance to show you your “yes”, then give it time to swing. Do not stare at the pendulum, just breathe and relax and try no to think of anything. then repeat the question to get your “no” swing.
Once it moves, it can either show you the pendulum swinging left to right, right to left or going around in circles whether it be clock wise or counter clockwise. One or the other will be your yes and your no.
Start with asking questions you know the answers to. Play around with your pendulum. Get acquiainted on how the energy moves it. Be self aware that you do not use yourself as a conductor for your answers. Breathe, relax, don’t think too much and let it flow through the pendulum not you.
This is a wonderful tool that can help you during your tough indecisive, chaotic moments. Trust me, when you are not quite yet allowed to know something, that pendulum will not move.
Pendulums have been used for divinity purposes. I always suggest asking for your angels to protect and shield the pendulum as you receive it’s answer. For answers that are not so shallow but deeper, it is good to get your angels to watch your back when getting your answer.
Cleansing Your Pendulum
Now there are many different ways to clean a pendulum’s energy. I found a simple way to clean my pendulum by asking the angels to clean my pendulum and give me a ‘yes’ swing once it’s clean. At times, you will see your pendulum start shaking, struggling to get moved. Do not worry, your pendulum is being cleansed as you asked. For me, it works all the time!
Another method is by rubbing the suspended item of the pendulum between the palms of your hands to clear out the energy. Some will wash it under running water with the intention to have it cleanse. Some put it in salt. There really is quite a few ways to clean your pendulum. Find the right one for you that beats with your rhythm and rhyme.
If you use Reiki as a tool, you can also use Reiki to cleanse the energy of the pendulum. Always be thankful for the answers given to you.
