Audio File on Pendulum Use (MP3)

Pendulums can be made of different materials, some people using a simple necklace with a crystal or charm at the end. Be sure the bob or bobber - or weight on the end - is not too light or too heavy. It should weigh less than half an ounce. The best shape for the weight - or point - is something that comes to a point. The best length for the pendulum is six inches. You can make your pendulum or buy one.

Pendulums are a simple way to communicate with the other side. I have seen people in stores use them to select products such as: books, food, clothing, just about anything.

The most common types of pendulums are:

- a crystal tied with wire then suspended on a chain or cord
- a chain necklace with some kind of charm suspended at the bottom
- a chain with metal pointer at the bottom - these are usual store bought
- the human body

How To Use A Pendulum

Once you select your pendulum you are ready to begin.

Sit down and get comfortable. Your mind and body should feel relaxed with no stress.

You can rest your elbow on a table in front of you allow the pendulum to swing free, or you can hold your arm in a horizontal position, again allowing your pendulum to swing freely.

You do not have to be psychic to use a pendulum. It will guide itself. It is moved by either your thoughts or someone in spirit who works through you, generally your spirit guide.

The first step is to get the feel of the pendulum and how it will move for you.

Pendulums Movements

- straight line - side to side or front and back

- circles - clockwise or counterclockwise

- elliptical motion

- some pendulums bob up and down to indicate strong action, usually affirmative

Most questions asked when using a pendulum have Yes or No answers. You must determine the direction your pendulum will take for Yes and for No.

Hold the pendulum in your hand. With the other hand - touch the point/bobber to steady its motion.

Keep your eyes on the point.

Now address the pendulum and say, "Show me 'Yes'." It will soon swing in one direction, which could be side to side, back and forth, or circles.

Now say, "Show me No." It should swing in the opposite direction.

Be certain the pendulum is not being guided by the movement of your hand or fingers.

Once you have determine the pattern for Yes and No - you are ready to begin.

There are times that the answer is unknown - or the spirit needs more information. At that time - the pendulum will generally swing diagonally or not at all.

The faster the movement - the stronger the energies.

Sometimes a pendulum will appear to bob or dance up and down. This is usually an affirmative response. the point is sometimes called a bobber.

There are generally no rituals involve with pendulum use, though some people hold their pendulum in the palm of their hand before they begin, to 'charge' it.

When you ask your questions you may want to record the answers.

Now you are ready to begin to ask your questions.

Start with something simple such as, "Is it sunny today?" "Is it Monday?" "Are you here to answer my questions?"

Once you get the 'swing' of it - you can move on to personal questions.

Remember to only ask a question ONCE. If you want more information - you might want to use a chart. At this time the pendulum should be about two inches above the chart - or as is comfortable.

If the motion of your pendulum increases - or the circles get large - the energy is increasing and you can expect change linked to the question you were asking. Pursue further questions to get additional information.

Pendulum Charts

You can create your own chart or print one from below. Charts can say anything - including the words Yes and No. They can have pictures, maps, symbols, or the alphabet, used to spell out words much like a ouija board. You can even use your pendulum over a ouija board as it has letters and often numbers on it. Always remember - no matter how you use this tool - is the information you receive becomes negative - you must STOP!

Pendulums and Chakras

Stand in front of, or directly behind, the person you are working with.

Place the pendulum directly over their crown chakra [top of head]. It will either swing back and forth or side to side - or in circles.

Next place the pendulum in front of the third eye [forehead]. If the chakra is balanced the pendulum will swing in the opposite direction of the crown chakra, or the circles will be reversed.

Continue with each chakra moving downward in order: throat, solar plexus, spleen, and root.

If a chakra is balanced the pendulum will continue to reverse polarities. If it is out of balance the pendulum will swing in the wrong direction - or not at all

You can also use the pendulum by placing it slowly a few inches away from a person's body. The point should remain still and move when it locates a problem.

Personal Experiences With Pendulums

I received my first pendulum in 1986. A friend named Chris, made the pendulum out of chain link with a single terminated smoky quartz crystal - about 2 inches long - as the weight (third from your left.) I have 4 crystal pendulums and 2 made of brass.

Working with a pendulum has always been natural for me, but the better I got, the more I realized I could influence the motion of the swing. To solve this problem, questions by friends or students were asked telepathically, then discussed after I received an answer.

Leon Foucault

  Foucault's Pendulum Google Videos

Leon Foucault celebrated in Google doodle   The Guardian - September 18, 2013

Leon Foucault was a French physicist best known for the invention of the Foucault pendulum, a device demonstrating the effect of the Earth's rotation. He also made an early measurement of the speed of light, discovered eddy currents, and although he didn't invent it, is credited with naming the gyroscope. The Foucault crater on the Moon is named after him.

The phenomenon develops calmly, but it is invisible, unstoppable. One feels, one sees it
born and grow steadily; and it is not in one's power to either hasten or slow it down.
