What Is A Pendulum?

The divination tool used, the pendulum, is a symmetrical weighted object that is hang tied to a single chain, cord, or rope. The pendulum is never made of a magnetic substance but is often made of crystal. There are also a few advantages on why crystal is the most sought-after material used in this mystic art. We will talk more about using a crystal pendulum for divination in the following paragraphs.

So, going back to the pendulum, it is a straightforward divination tool that acts as a receiver and transmitter of information. The pendulum moves in different ways in response to questions. You can either wait for the pendulum to move in the direction of the answer, or you can hold it over each option you have provided. One by one until you get a specific yes or no. The pendulum acts as a conduit to this energy that is flowing through it.

How Does A Pendulum For Divination Work?

Pendulum work is excellent for an immediate yes or no question, and that is exactly how it is often used by mystic users today. To use a pendulum for divination, you must hold the end of the string that ties the pendulum. The pendulum should be hang up, and you focus your energy on it. Once an uninterrupted balance is done, the user can ask a question (one question at a time) and wait for a response.

The response to the question differs from one person to another. Generally, it’s believed that if the pendulum begins moving in a clockwise motion, it signifies a yes. In contrast, counter clockwise means the opposite, but that depends on your relationship with the pendulum.

The fun part is how you’ll figure out for yourself what movement you associate the answer to your question in using a pendulum for divination. Some people connect a yes or no response to their pendulum moving side to side rather than rotating in a circular motion — and that is okay, too!

Other times, people hold their pendulum above objects like boards with various answers written out on it, somewhat like an Ouija board. Others, above printed photographs, maps, or pieces of paper, all with the intent of its relation to the question asked — you can do that too!

Some people describe how a pendulum works as bringing together the rational and intuitive sides of you (both the left and right sides of your brain). When these two components are brought together, you can make decisions using all the sources instead of only one. It is important to note that pendulum divination should only be used for positive purposes. Never promote negativity or harm when doing this mystic art — to others and yourself.

What Type of Pendulum Do You Need?

If you’re ready to embark on your magical journey to pendulum dowsing, you first have to choose a pendulum of your own. You will want to choose a pendulum that you vibe with, and you feel comfortable using. Like any divination tool, make sure you’re working with a pendulum that you’ve bonded with. And remember to calibrate and test the pendulum before using it in your reading.

Although many pendulums are made of crystals, there’s no need to buy anything expensive or posh to get the same good results. Any non-magnetized, weighted, symmetrical object hanging by a thread or chain can do the trick. As long as it’s at a comfortable weight and length and it feels right to you then there’s no problem.

The pendulum’s magic is in the energy that it channels. So if you want to try some dowsing before officially investing in a crystal, you can easily do so. But, using a crystal for pendulum divination has an advantage. 

An advantage of using a crystal for divination is that it doesn’t tend to spin nor twist on the thread or chain to which it’s attached. Many people choose to use a crystal pendulum for the properties that each type of crystal possesses. For example, clear quartz is associated with clarity. Amethyst for connection with spirits, and rose quartz for its calming properties.

Ultimately, whatever the selection of crystal you’re most drawn to using, as long as it’s rounded or pointed at one end, it’s good to go. Having more than one pendulum with different crystals on them for other occasions isn’t a problem. Moreover, the preferred length of the string, the size, and the type of weight are also your personal preference. A little experimentation with this will sort out what works best for you.

What Type of Questions Can You Ask the Pendulum?

Many people wonder where the answers come from. People debate whether it is really working or just the pendulum responding to the movement of the user’s hand. While the pendulum can undoubtedly be made to move with your hand movements, after you practice, you will get to see why this isn’t always the case.

As with any form of divination practice, techniques, and fortune-telling methods. The use of a pendulum for divination involves a certain degree of faith, belief, and a decidedly open mind. This is because the answers that you seek comes from your intuition and the higher spirit guides.

Once you start asking questions, you need to set and find what the pendulum’s response will be for you. It is different for each of us, and it’s up to you to decide what it will be. To help you get started, practice using the pendulum for divination by using the three usual responses (yes, no, don’t know (maybe)). In contrast, the pendulum either moves in a circular motion, side-to-side, back and forth or remains stationary.

When asking questions on your pendulum, ensure that you eliminate any outside sources that could affect its movement. When you find your stillness, decide exactly how your energy or guides should speak to you through the pendulum. Some people intuitively know this as soon as they begin using their pendulum, and if that’s the case for you, awesome! Just remember to trust your intuition.

If you need some more guidance, begin by asking the pendulum simple questions that can be answered with yes or no, that you already know the answer to. Eventually, you would feel confident interpreting the pendulum’s movements. At that point, you can begin using the divination tool to answer your questions or point you in the right direction.
