PENDULUM POWER - a basic introduction

I first taught a class on using a pendulum in 2013 and then again in 2019 a section of one of my island retreats featured the work - I wanted to share the link here as it's really useful to support some of the online classes I'm doing this Summer.

So click on either the link below or the button - both will take you through to the pdf notes (about 9 pages). If you are new to pendulums, it will give you the very basic advice.

To summarise ....

  1. Choose Your Pendulum: Select a pendulum that feels right for you. It can be a weighted object like a crystal or metal suspended on a chain or string. Anything, I sometimes think if you 'make' one it carries an energy that really does connect to you.

  2. Cleanse Your Pendulum: Cleanse it to remove any unwanted energies. You can do this by holding it under running water, smudging it with sage, or placing it in sunlight or moonlight for a few hours. Blowing over it is a quick way and I often put mine overnight on an amethyst cluster that has the ability to clear and clean energetically.

  3. Establish a Connection: Hold the pendulum in your dominant hand. Take a few deep breaths to centre yourself. State your intention to connect with the pendulum for clear and accurate guidance.

  4. Set Up a Yes/No System:

  • Ask the pendulum to show you a “Yes” response. Note the direction it swings (e.g., back and forth, side to side, or in a circle).

  • Ask the pendulum to show you a “No” response. Note this direction.

  • You can also ask for a “Maybe” or “Not Ready to Answer” response if desired.

  1. Ask Clear Questions: Pose simple, clear, yes-or-no questions. Hold the pendulum steady and wait for it to start swinging in the direction that corresponds to your yes/no system.

  2. Interpret the Movements: Observe the direction of the swing to determine the answer. Be patient and allow the pendulum to move naturally.

  3. Thank Your Pendulum: After your session, thank your pendulum for its guidance. Store it in a safe place. Treat it as if it's your best friend ..... it can be!

Remember to stay relaxed and open-minded throughout the process
