Using the Pendulum

Using the Pendulum

The pendulum is basically an amplifier. It is a tool that helps you to access the collective unconscious and your Higher Self. You can get answers to anything you can come up with.

Every one is basically capable of working with the pendulum. Learning to work with it is like learning to play an instrument. It requires constant practice and experimentation Making mistakes is part of the learning process. The results you get will reflect your stage of spiritual/mental development.

You should not use the pendulum for egoistic reasons. Use it only for the well being of others or yourself.

REMEMBER: Swinging the pendulum requires that you be undivided and totally present in the moment.

PROGRAMMING THE PENDULUM

You can ask about anything you like with the pendulum if the question can be answered with YES or NO. But first you have to determine what each pendulum movement means for you.

Take a seated position at a desk or table. Place you feet flat on the floor resting your elbow on the desk. Hold the pendulum by the end of chain between your thumb and index finger. Make sure that your upper body and back are straight, that the energy can flow freely. Put your other hand flat on the table. Relax. Let your breath flow calmly. Make sure before you start that you will be undistracted. Do not swing the pendulum when you are tired.

Hold your pendulum over the center of the illustration shown below and you ask: “What does a YES look like?” than “What does a NO look like?”

The pendulum can turn in the following directions: up-down, left-right or in a circle.

When you have determined a clear Yes and No, ask your pendulum how it swings for “I do not want to answer” or “I can not answer that.”

REMEMBER: a correct answer will follow only when the question is asked in the right way.

TESTING THE PENDULUM

You should test your pendulum for accuracy before you begin to work. Use a numbered chart 1-100% and ask how accurate your pendulum is. The ideal would be 100%. If it is below 60% do not swing the pendulum, ask about the reasons or try some other time when rested and calm.

  1. Choose A Pendulum:
    Allow a pendulum to choose you. If you like the way it looks or feels, it is meant for you.
  2. Cleanse Your Pendulum:
    You may cleanse it by holding it under running cold tap water, soaking it in sea salt, or setting a mental intention to free it of 'picked up energies.'
  3. Understand the Directional Swings of Your Pendulum:
    Pendulums swing in vertical straight lines, horizontal straight lines, and in circular movements.
  4. Define the Directional Swings of Your Pendulum:
    Assign each directional swing a "response" by first asking the pendulum to show you what certain responses look like. Ask: What does a NO look like? What does a YES look like ?... and so on.

Pendulum Response Examples:

  • Vertical swing signifies NO
  • Horizontal swing signifies YES
  • Circular movement signifies NEUTRAL
  1. Prepare Your Questions:
    A question should be one that can be answered with a positive, negative or neutral response.

Good Example Question:
Will I be offered the job I interviewed for this morning?

Poor Example Question:
Will my pregnant cousin deliver a boy or girl?

  1. Set Your Intention:
    It is imperative that you precede your question session with a prayerful request or statement.

Example Intention:
It is my intention to receive truthful answers which will serve the good of all concerned.

  1. Ask Your Questions:
    Be prepared to ask several questions in order to receive enough information to aid you in your quest for answers.
  2. Between Questions:
    Make sure to completely stop any pendulum motion between questions to clear any lingering energies that pertain to the previous question.

Tips:

  1. Accept information only if your instincts assure you it is accurate.
  2. Keep a notebook handy to write down your questions and your pendulum's response.
  3. Each pendulum may have a different response. Likewise, each person must establishtheir own directional swings before using a pendulum.

Make sure that the pendulums have been cleared of any negative energies before and after each use.
