HOW TO USE A CRYSTAL PENDULUM
A pendulum is essentially a weight suspended from a pivot (string, cord, chain), so it can swing freely. You can use a pendulum to gain insight from your subconscious mind, your body and cells, and your higher self.
When using a pendulum your thoughts direct the subconscious to move the pendulum in a certain direction. The subconscious uses the brain to send signals along the neurological pathways that control the muscle "twitches" that move the pendulum.
Use your pendulum to find out if certain foods, drinks, herbs, vitamins, supplements are right for you at the time. Use your pendulum to clarify emotions and to help make clear decisions that are in line with your highest path.
When you first acquire your pendulum you will need to determine which direction is a yes and which direction is a no. A pendulum can move clockwise, counter-clockwise, back and forth, side to side and diagonally. You can then begin using your pendulum to answer yes/no questions.
1. Say aloud: "Show me a ‘yes'." This could happen quickly, or it may take awhile. Once the pendulum is moving in a definite direction for "yes" state aloud: "This direction is my ‘yes’ direction."
2. Say aloud: "Show me a ‘no’." Note the direction the pendulum moves. Then say aloud "This is my ‘no’ direction."
3. Now make several simple true statements (one at a time) to which you know the answers. Such as: My name is ____. I live at __________. I am _______ years old. My hair colour is ______. My eye colour is _____. This practice will test your pendulum directions and ensure you are confident in your yes and no responses.
It is important to get a sense of when you are willing the pendulum to go a certain way and when you are allowing your true subconscious to direct the pendulum. Always first take a couple deep breaths and clear your mind before consulting the pendulum. It helps to gaze slightly above and beyond the pendulum and not stare directly at it when asking your question. Make sure your question is a clear yes/no question.
To determine if a food, herb, vitamin, medicine, crystal etc. is beneficial for you hold your pendulum above the item (or photo of the item) and ask, "Is this _____ beneficial for me right now?"
Remember: The answer the pendulum gives will be for the moment you are asking it, (unless you specify a certain time in your questioning) and your answer may be different at another time.
These are just a few examples of ways to use your pendulum. The more you use it the more you will gain confidence and certainty in interpreting its movements.
