Today on the Blog, we talk about what a pendulum is and how to use it. (Pictured are just some of the pendulums we have in stock)
Firstly, do you know what a pendulum is?
A pendulum is a small weight on a string or chain. The weight shouldn’t be too heavy or too light, and it can be any sort of string or chain. Normally they are small with a point facing downwards. The chain or string is usually about 20 cm long. It is popular to have a crystal on a length of chain, but if you don’t have one available, you can use a chain and pendant, or anything that will loosely hang freely.
Throughout history pendulums have been used to locate water, gold, gems, and other valuable items.
The pendulum can be thought of as an extension of the intuition and a tool to access and enhance information that already exists in your subconscious mind. It could be said that it strengthens or amplifies the intuition because it converts the subtleties of the intuition into a more obvious form of physical motion.
When you ask a question of the pendulum, it is your own intuition that answers it. The pendulum merely allows you to physically see what the intuition already knows. As an extension of the intuition, the pendulum can give you information from the same two sources as the intuition: from your own subconscious mind; and from your guidance, spirit, or guardian angel. Because of how it operates, the pendulum can only answer questions that are phrased so that the answer is either “yes” or “no”.
– Determining the “yes” and “no” Response.
Before using a pendulum for the first time it is important to establish how your pendulum will respond to a question. To do this, you may ask the pendulum to show you a ‘Yes’. Note which way the pendulum turns. Now ask the pendulum to show you a ‘No’. Take note of this response.
There are times when the answer is a ‘Maybe’ or a ‘Not to know’ response. Ask your pendulum to show you how it will respond.
Once you are confident of the different ways your pendulum will respond, start asking some questions. You can start by asking simple questions like, ‘Is my name……’. or do I have ‘……hair’.
This way, you will get a feel for the response. You can also purposely ask it an incorrect question and watch the response.
– Appropriate types of questions to ask.
Free will plays an important role when considering using a pendulum as a tool. Example, it is appropriate to ask whether it would be good for you to marry a particular person, but it is not appropriate for you to ask whether he/she is going to ask you to marry him, because that is not your right to choose.
In the same way, it is not appropriate to ask if you are going to meet your prince charming today, because that is not within your control. However, it is appropriate to try to divine other people’s motivations or who they are inside, because you already know this at a subconscious level anyway. For example, it is appropriate to ask “Can I trust him? Does he want me for a friend, or only for what I can give him?”
