Understanding Pendulum Dowsing

Pendulum Dowsing

Pendulum dowsing is a tool of divination that many psychics use. Anyone can learn to use a pendulum and they can get the answers that they need.

Making a Pendulum

A pendulum is an object that is weighted and hung on a chain or a rope. It can be used as a crystal at the end but never use something magnetized. You can also use a bead, a ball, a key, or some kind of charm as the pendulum. The pendulum will get answers that you need and will move in different ways so that you can know what the answers are.

Using Pendulum Dowsing

Psychics often use pendulums in order to get answers to questions. Here are some other things pendulum dowsing is used for:

  • For healing.
  • Helping to find allergies.
  • To get rid of negativity in a room or on the body.
  • To find objects, people, or lost pets.
  • To help find water.

Understanding Pendulum Dowsing

A pendulum can be used in order to reach your inner self. It works with your energy and your intuition to guide you and give you answers. The spiritual guides can use the pendulum movements to give you answers that you seek.

As the pendulum moves, you will ask a yes or no question. You will then note the direction that the pendulum moves in order to see which answer the pendulum is giving you.

How to Get Pendulum Answers

Some people wonder how to get pendulum answers and if a pendulum really works. The movement of the pendulum is supposed to come from energy and not from the movement of the user. A pendulum can move with how you move your hands but if you practice and you want to use it as a tool of divination, you will learn to not move your hand and to move the pendulum by your intuition.

How to Get a Pendulum

There are different kinds of pendulums that you can get when you want to do dowsing. This isn’t something that you have to pay a lot of money for. You can even make your own pendulum and get the same results as one that you have bought.

You need to figure out what feels best for you. One of the best crystals to use is the Clear Quartz. This is popular because it can help you to reach your higher self. Here are some other crystals that might make you a great pendulum:

  • Amethyst: Can help you to connect with the spirit world and calm you.
  • Rose Quartz: This stone can bring you peace.

No matter what crystal that you choose to use, you need to pick the one that you are most drawn to. This will help you to connect to it the best and will give you the best reading. You can even use different crystals depending on the different situation. If you are using one for the first time, practice making them and then see what kind of energies that you connect with.

Before Using Your Pendulum

Before you use your pendulum the best thing to do is to make sure that your crystal is charged. You can do this by putting it on the windowsill and letting the sun or the moon give it energy. This can take about 20 minutes, or you can leave it overnight.

Take time to meditate before you do any kind of reading. Focus on the energy around you and concentrate on your breathing. Sit quietly and let the angels and the spirit guides come to you. After your stone is cleansed and charged, be ready. Once you use it, put it away in a velvet bag to keep it safe.

Using a Pendulum

Any person can use a pendulum. The biggest thing though is that you need to have an open mind. Don’t do a reading if you have doubts. Hold the strong between your forefinger or whatever way it is comfortable to you.

Sometimes a person will put a ring in the top of the chain so that they can hold the pendulum that way. If the chain is too long, it needs to be shortened but not too short. Make sure it is a length that it can move on its own. Rest your hand at the bottom of the pendulum and keep your palm upward. The pendulum should be still when you start, and you should not move the pendulum yourself but let it move on its own.

Be as relaxed as you can be. Pay attention to how the pendulum moves. Ask a question that you already know the answer to. Or you can ask the pendulum to show you what a yes response looks like. As the pendulum moves, note which way it is moving. If it moves, you can then ask it to show you a no response.

If you can’t tell which direction is which at first, this is normal. Don’t get frustrated. You will learn the difference as you practice. Sometimes the movements will be left to right, right to left, top to bottom or circular in motion. This can change over time if you recharge and learn the energy of the pendulum.

Asking the Pendulum Questions

The pendulum works best with yes or no answers. You can ask a simple question such as, “Is my name Sally?” The pendulum will move a certain way. This can make you more confident that you are getting the right answers.

Try not to ask open ended questions because these will be hard to read if you are new. If you want to find a lost object or person, you can hold the pendulum over the map, and it can swing over the lost object or person.

If the Pendulum Doesn’t Move

There will be times that the pendulum might not work. If you get the wrong answers, the pendulum might not be understanding what you are saying, or you might be confused about the movements. Here are some things to ask yourself:

  • Are you doing the reading when you feel upset about something?
  • You might not be relaxed enough.
  • Do you feel negative?
  • Are you too close to electrical devices?
  • Did you phrase the question in a simple way?
  • Are you doing the reading in a place where you won’t be distracted?
  • Try a different pendulum.

The best thing that can help you to get the proper reading is to have an open mind. If you still need help, talk to a psychic, and let your gifts grow.
