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 person 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 wellbeing 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 your 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 centre 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 have programmed your pendulum you should then 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 cannot 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.
REMEMBER: the answers you get refer to the present moment only. It can partially or completely change at another time or place.
OTHER WAYS TO USE THE PENDULUM
You can place your pendulum directly over an object and test it. You may want to test your water, groceries, medications, gemstones, flower remedies, and 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.
HOW TO CHECK IF CHAKRAS ARE BLOCKED
Request the person having their chakras checked to lay down on their back on a surface that is tall enough for you to have a comfortable position and not be leaning into them. You do not want to create a push, where you are pushing your own energy onto theirs.
Start by holding the cord of the pendulum between your thumb and forefinger about 4-6 inches (or 10-15 cm) above each chakra. When the pendulum moves, notice its direction and movement. This movement is what you will analyze in order to check the chakras:
If the pendulum moves clockwise, then that chakra is open and well-balanced and full.
If the pendulum moves counter-clockwise, then there may be a blocked energy or negative experiences with the feelings relating to that chakra.
If the pendulum moves in an elliptical swing, there may be a right- or left-side imbalance of energy flowing in the body. This may be due to overusing the right masculine side or the left nurturing side.
If the pendulum moves in an erratic swing, it is possible that your friend may have recently changed their beliefs or are going through a spiritual upheaval, which can affect the chakra’s movement and cause it to move erratically for a couple of days.
If the pendulum does not move at all, you may be holding the pendulum in the incorrect location. If that is not the case, then there may be a blockage in that chakra.
