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.

Depending what are they used for, they can be for: healing specific illnesses, for adjusting chakras, teleradiesthesia (distance healing, map dowsing).

They can also be: Simple: tear drop, ball-shaped, conical, spiral, made from brass, copper, crystal, wood, ceramic.

Or with their own radiation: Universal Pendulum, Osiris, Isis, Karnak, Mer-Isis, Atlantis...

When selecting a pendulum follow your intuition and choose one that you like. You can make a pendulum yourself if you take a thread and hang a weigh on it which can be any object you like. The thread can be 15 to 20 cm long. Tie a knot in the thread at the length where the swing of the pendulum feels the best.

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.

Practice several times a day for at least a week. Once you have determined your YES and NO do not deviate from it. When you programmed your pendulum test it. Prove to yourself that it really works. Ask questions you already know the answer. Otherwise always assume an unattached and unbiased attitude.

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.

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.

REMEMBER: the answer you get refer to the present moment only. It can partially or completely change at another time or place.

You can place your pendulum directly over an object and test it. You may want to test your water, groceries, medications, gemstones, flower remedies, determine what therapies are good for you by writing down the name of couple of them. You can test the energy of your house, evaluate your sleeping space, and more.
Personally I've always used my own necklace which is a large citrine crystal at the end of a ball chain. (kinda like the one youd find in your bathtub but made of silver instead of aluminum) Anywho it works for me, unless I ask it about gambling or money, then it just straight lies to me and tells me "yes" which make me conclude that I'm not focused or clear enough when I ask it questions that pretain to finances. Anything else I usually hit on the mark.

Excellent guide for working with a pendulum! Congratulations!

Personally I've used pendulum for finding information related to my past lifes. Being an astrologer I was able to confront the results with my chart analysis.
I've received a lot of precious information.
Like you said it is all depending on how you put the question and most important if you are entitled to receive an answer.
Also you should be emotionally free when you are working with your pendulum.

Good article. I use a heavy needle on a thread. Works good and I can take it anywhere.

Never thought of doing this, sounds such a good idea, what is the accuracy like compared to a pendulum?

It's the same,(same principle). The needle is the pendulum. It may seem easier because of its lightness, but I've always have had good results.
I use a round lapis lazuli ball shaped pendulum attached to a chain. It seems to work better and more accurately (making wider movements) the more I use it. Although it has given me surprisingly good results while testing it (tried to find North with it then checked the result in a more "scientifical" way) and answering questions that were later verified I do not always trust it 100% as it is sometimes wrong.

I have found that I can also force the pendulum to use certain movements. After all, you are just creating a line of communication with your subconscious.

I can physically cause it to swing and say "This is yes" or "this is no" then soon after "Show me a yes" or "Show me a no" I repeat until it gives the correct answer. I test my pendulum every use, as t what way it currently considers to be yes or no.

Currently, it sits at about 95% accuracy so I would say I'm doing something good smile.gif
