How To Work With A Pendulum


A pendulum is a weight attached to a chain, string or cord and gives guidance by how it swings. It is a popular divination tool due to its simple nature. Many people will often rule this tool’s wisdom out because they suspect that the body creates the direction in which the pendant moves.

The Pendulum Reads Energy Patterns

However, this is precisely how it works to give an accurate answer. It is said the pendulum helps us access our subconscious mind through our body, and it helps us truly connect to the collective unconscious as well. Even if it’s not understood, the body can read energy and connect to the universal mind. This allows us to connect to all knowledge and insight directly downloaded from the energetic level our body absorbs to reflect in a movement.

The Basics

The first step to working with a pendulum is to read its energy. You can ask the pendulum to show you what is a “yes” or a positive answer and what is a “no” or negative answer. The movement and direction will both have to be observed because this is the key to everything. If your pendant is barely moving during this process, be patient and try to say yes or no louder in your mind to watch it move more strongly.

Then, take your time to ask the pendulum basic questions to which you already know the answer, for example, “Is this my name? Am I sitting right now?”. If it’s working correctly, it should answer yes to questions that you already know.

Lastly, a small tip is not to cross your arms or legs as you move the pendulum, which will block off energy. Try to keep the pendulum a foot away from you and your forearm parallel to the floor. Now you are ready to ask it anything that can be answered with a yes or no.
