Pendulum is one of the most favourite tools that is used for performing fortune telling and alternative healing. It is a simple device that is composed of a weight suspended on a wire, string, metal or other material that swings back and forth. If you hold it in your hands, you might wonder, who is making your pendulum swing? Is there any spiritual entity behind it? No, your muscles and their micro-movement is responsible for that. In this article I will provide you with everything you need to know to be able to master pendulum basics.
There are several different ways how you can use your pendulum, some of the them require you to ask questions while the others are based on your ability to visualize. However, even though instructions about how to use it are more or less very simple, achieving high accuracy of response from pendulum is not that easy. Having used pendulum for more than 10 years, I decided it is now time to share with you my experience and tips how to use pendulum effectively.
Many people tend to believe that there is a special power/entity/spirit that is behind the fact your pendulum reacts to your questions. No, it is not. It is you who moves your pendulum. Pendulum is just a tool which amplifies the micro-movements created by your muscles.
Either you move the pendulum:
At the time you are doing your pendulum training, way no. 1) can be pretty useful to practice as it helps you get used to the different movements of the pendulum. Using your will you should be able to force pendulum to follow any direction.
It might happen that one direction is not working for you. This is normal and it is a sign that in your past/childhood you didn’t perform certain movements with your hands and not all of your muscles are “well-trained”. The other reason might be the fact that the part of the brain which is responsible for movement is blocked.
If the horizontal movement doesn’t work for you, practice it until it does. If it doesn’t work either, take a pen and paper and start drawing horizontal lines from left to the right and then backwards. And then try again. If it doesn’t help, consider replacing your pendulum (once I had a weird pendulum in my hand which I couldn’t move into certain direction, it is very rare, but possible)
Before starting using your pendulum subconsciously, you should master the described movements using your will. Later on there is no need to use your will while working with pendulum.
Muscles have built-in 2 main states in which they can get into. They can go into the released state (for example if you have your hand just lying on the table you can imagine what I mean), or they can go into the tight state (for example when you clench your fist). Muscles naturally react to your questions/visualisations by going into these 2 states. Put simply – when the muscles are in released state, they mean something is good for you. When they are tight, something is bad.
However, it can happen these reactions are reversed and your muscles go into the tight state when in fact they should be in released state and vice versa. That’s why it is always recommended to perform muscle test to calibrate muscles to give you correct responses because I believe you don’t want to get reversed answers from the pendulum.
Your muscles go into the described states million of times a day. During any decision you are about to make (it doesn’t depend if you are holding a pendulum at the same moment), your muscles will always react – you even don’t consciously realize as their movements are almost impossible to feel. If your muscles aren’t calibrated properly, you might not make a good decision. Even animals have the same system. We can say that our 6th sense is located in our muscles.
When you are working with pendulum, you have to ensure that your muscles react properly. So I recommend doing this muscle test every day just before you ask the pendulum any question.
When the questions which you are asking pendulum are related to you, your family, close ones or any sensitive topic is involved, it often happens that your ego steps in and influences the answer. The reason might be: the fear of what the answer will be, your desire, your expectations how the answer should be and also emotional imbalance (if you are angry, somebody told you bad news, you are under stress..). This can be tricky and requires some practice to get rid of the ego and its influence.
This is my favourite topic. I often ask my students on my pendulum courses: “Look at the photo you have got in front of you and use your pendulum to test if the person has a healthy heart”. The usual outcome is that half of the group responds with YES answer and the other half of the group with NO answer. So does the person have a healthy heart or not? The answer is – everyone in the group is right! How is it possible? It doesn’t make any sense. It does have, let me explain it.
What does it mean for you to have a healthy heart?
Simple answer could be, ok, if the heart is working in a way that the person has normal blood pressure. The other person might think, for me, the heart is healthy when it has the right shape, no dead cells inside and it generates right bioelectric activity. The 3rd person might come up with even more precise definition – healthy heart is able to pump the blood in a way blood pressure is standard, there are no dead cells inside, there are no enemy viruses, bacteria present, there are no cancer or genetically other mutated cells, there is no inflammation. You see what I mean?
The answer to this question is highly dependent on the way how you perceive the word HEALTHY. There are approx. 70 characteristics that say what a healthy heart must fulfill in order that we can definitely say it is healthy.
So it is very crucial which words you use to construct questions when you ask for something your pendulum. Not everybody understands the words the same way you do. Another good example to check with pendulum is whether your crown chakra is open. Anyway, what is a chakra? Is it a place inside your body or outside? What does it look like? Is it rotating energy or what is it? Internet is full of definitions and everybody talks about chakra but they mean different things..
I hope you haven’t been overwhelmed by the information in this article and you don’t stop using the pendulum just because it may look like a very advanced technique.
Believe me, start using the pendulum on daily basis and you will master it after some time. Just don’t forget about these 4 important things:
