The Pendulum is a divination
tool made of a piece of string and a weight. The weight
can be almost anything: a metal washer, a gold or silver
ring, even a paper clip.
Pendulum divination has survived through the centuries.
The two most common pendulum models involve either the suspension
of a ring from a thin silk thread, or the suspension of
a crystal from a chain.
First, get a feel for your pendulum, carry it with you for
a couple of days, keeping it in a velvet or silk cloth.
( I carry mine in my pocket if I know I am going to use
it in the next few days).It will tune into your energy.
Then you would be able to test its power. Hold the chain
between the thumb and forefinger and let the pendulum hang
down, it should not touch anything or anyone though. But
make sure your hand and arm are completely still. Wait until
the crystal or ring has stopped swinging at the end of the
chain before you begin.
Ask a question to which you KNOW THE ANSWER IS YES. The
crystal should begin to move either side to side, back and
forth or clockwise or anticlockwise etc. Whatever pattern
the movement follows, make a note that this would always
be your 'yes' answer. (You can verify by repeating the question,
to make sure). Follow the same steps, this time asking a
question to which you know the answer is NO. Again, note
the movements and this should always be your own 'no' answer.(
I always ask it to give me a YES and then to give me a No
before I start anyway). Then you can start asking questions
that you don't have an answer to.
The ancient Romans and the French seer Nostradamus were
renowned for using the pendulum. Both used a different method
from the one we use today. They used a method of basin scrying
by means of a pendulum to produce letters that formed prophetic
verses. The bowl or basin used was made of electrum, an
alloy of gold and silver. A ring with occult characters
engraved upon it was attached by thread to a wand. The twenty-four
letters of the Greek alphabet were engraved into the flange
of the basin. The table used was probably a tripod in which
to support the basin. It was made out of branches of laurel
and had three legs.
If you're using a ring suspended from either a silver chain
or a silk thread, you should also use a goblet of water.
The answers to your yes/no questions come in the form of
the tapping sounds of the ring inside the glass. A single
tap indicates a yes while two taps indicate a no. More than
two taps indicates the spirit is not certain of the response.
Another method involves using a sheet of paper with a cross
marked upon it. The ring is held suspended over the cross
in the left hand upon a silk thread. If the answer to the
question asked is yes it will swing back and forth along
the vertical arm of the cross. If the answer is no it will
swing side to side along the horizontal arm of the cross.
Once you become familiar with the use of the Pendulum, you
can also use it to find lost articles or to dowse for water
There is a party trick I do which always works and that
is to use two coins of different metals and test them first
with the pendulum to see which way it goes, then ask someone
to put the coins in their hands and hold out their clasped
hands after moving the coins behind their back, I then hold
the pendulum above one hand at a time then tell them which
coin is which, love to see their faces when they open their
Another use for a Pendulum
There are many applications on the internet for supposedly
checking your Chakras or you could go to
someone to find out if your chakras are out of balance,
but there is a far easier way you can do yourself.
All you need is a pendulum or a weight on a string.
Hold the string or chain between the thumb and forefinger
and let the pendulum hang down, it should not touch anything
or anyone though. But make sure your hand and arm are completely
still. Wait until the crystal or ring has stopped swinging
at the end of the chain before you begin.
Now place the pendulum directly in front of your first
chakra at the crown, this is at the top of the head, follow
the instructions above so the pendulum is still then let
It should rotate in one direction or the other, make a metal
note whether it’s clockwise or anti clockwise.
Repeat for the next chakra at the brow the third eye chakra,
this should rotate the opposite way.
And again at the Throat chakra, again this should rotate
opposite to the last one.
Do all you charka points down to the base chakra and each
if correctly aligned will rotate in opposite direction with
each one tested, a bit like cogs or gears in a clock.
If they don’t then your chakras are out of alignment,
this can make you feel anything from tired to ill, visit
you local healer and tell them your charkas need realigning
or maybe even try to do it yourself.
There is a lot of information on the internet how to do
this or visit my crystal healing page for more information
