Using a Pendulum

Using A Pendulum

A pendulum is a weight that is suspended from a pivot so that it can swing freely. Pendulums are often used for divination, or seeking guidance or information from a higher power. To use a pendulum for divination, you will need to choose a pendulum and a chart that corresponds to the questions you want to ask. Here's how to use a pendulum for divination:
  1. Hold the pendulum by the end of its chain or cord with your dominant hand, with your elbow resting on a table or other surface to keep your arm stable.
  2. Ask your pendulum to show you your "yes." Watch the movement. Then ask your pendulum to show you your "no." Again, watch the movement and use your yes and no and a base mark.
  3. Now, focus your energy and intention on the question you want to ask or the issue you want guidance on.
  4. Hold the pendulum still and ask it to show you the answer to your question. The pendulum may start to move in a particular direction or pattern, which is thought to indicate the answer.
  5. Interpret the movement of the pendulum according to the chart you are using. Different charts may have different meanings for different movements or patterns.
  6. Repeat the process as needed until you feel you have received the guidance or information you were seeking.
It's important to keep in mind that pendulum divination is a personal and subjective practice. It can be a helpful tool for self-exploration and reflection, but it should not be used as a substitute for professional advice or treatment.
