It is believed that the pendulum creates a bridge between the logical and intuitive parts of the mind. Pendulum dowsing is a way to connect to your Higher Self and to seek answers to your questions. Anybody can learn how to use a pendulum. It’s just an extension of yourself. Pendulums provide you with answers so you can make informed choices. There’s some fantastic inspo, resources and pendulum charts on Pinterest, right here.
Amethyst, known for its healing powers, has the ability to attract spiritual energies and to calm restless thoughts. It provides peace of mind, and is a wonderful stone for meditation as well as to attract serene dreams. Recently, we included an Amethyst Pendulum in our Ultra Luxe “Tranquility” Box for our top tier subscribers. If you’ve been following us, you know that we love to spoil our tribe with amazing and beautiful ways to advance spiritual growth beyond the bath rituals that we create each month.
Our Pendulum Pendant also features stones for balancing the chakras. Each chakra is related to a part of the body, an organ, a strength, a weakness, a state of consciousness. These are powerful energy centers of the body, and you can use a pendulum to find out where your imbalances are.
Pendulums and crystals can absorb energy from their surroundings. It’s important to cleanse and recharge them when you first get them, or if you have worked with them for awhile. The best and most complete way to get rid of negative energies is to use the 4 elements of nature. Here are some ideas:
EARTH: Bury your stone pendulum in its natural element, the earth or sea salt, and let it stand for awhile. The salt will absorb and transform the negative elements.
WATER: Put your pendulum in a bowl of crystal energized water, visualize love flowing and replacing any obstacle, removing old emotional links.
AIR: Hold your pendulum over smoldering frankincense resin or smudge to clean up its energy fiend and purify it.
FIRE: Put your pendulum in a pyramid and expose it to the sun for a few hours. It will be energized with the highest vibrations. If you don’t have a pyramid, don’t worry. Simply place it in a bowl or on a dish in the sun.
Gurus tell us that just as radios pick up information from unseen radio waves, the pendulum is a powerful antenna that receives information from the vibrations and energy waves emitted by people, places, thoughts and things.
Noted physicist, Albert Einstein, was known to perform impressive feats with such dowsing tools. He believed that it had to do with electromagnetism: just as birds migrate following the earth’s magnetic field, dowsers react to energies that are unseen and still not fully understood.
HOW TO WORK WITH A PENDULUM
Take your pendulum between your thumb and your index finger. The shorter you hold it, the faster your pendulum will react. Keep your elbow on the table and relax.
Double check your pendulum signal with some questions. Ask your pendulum to say Yes and then No, and observe the movement it will make.
It’s easy to get working with a pendulum chart or mat. It offers simple Yes or No answers, as well as other useful options such as Ask Again or Will Not/Can’t/Don’t Want to Answer. Sometimes, we are not ready to receive information because we wouldn’t be able to cope with it or one of our questions needs to be reformulated. For example, you may ask “should I do it now?” and the pendulum may signal the Ask Again (or Rephrase) axis, but if you ask, “should I do it before lunch?” you may get a Yes or No signal.
Before you start, clear your mind of concerns or worries. Take a minute to invite your Guides and Angels. Light and Love are the best shields against anything unwanted. Intentions are everything when working with spiritual tools. If you are inclined, many repeat a prayer 3 times before starting to work with the pendulum, such as this one:
“May I have a heart as pure as a crystal, an intellect as bright as the sun, a soul as vast as the Universe, a spirit as powerful as God, and united with God.”
There are many fun ways to work with pendulums, as in the Yes/No example. But there are also various charts:
A CHAKRA chart can tell you about your physical or emotional imbalances, and which energy center you should focus on working with.
An ASTROLOGY chart can have many possibilities. It can represent different phases of life, a time of year, or can give you information on recommended relationships.
A NUMBER chart can give you your lucky number, dates, expected temperature, and sometimes people consult with them based on quantities of things (i.e. recommend a quantity of product to buy).
The more you work with a pendulum, the more comfortable you will get with it, and want to explore all the many ways it can benefit you. Soon, your pendulum will become a powerful tool for your decision making and self-awareness.
