Divination and Dowsing with a pendulum:
Divination is a form of gaining insight or answers into situations. Dowsing with pendulums is one of the easiest forms of divination. Use pendulums as a tool to connect to and communicate with spirit via your higher self or your guides. These pendulums can be used to aid you to make decisions in your life and get the answers you seek.
Who can use a pendulum :
Anyone can use a pendulum for dowsing and divination. You don't need any type of spiritual experience for this, it will work regardless.
How to use your pendulum
Choose your Pendulum:
It is important to find a pendulum that feels right to you. Choose a pendulum that you are drawn to.
Cleanse your Pendulum:
Cleanse your pendulum can be done by basking in the full moon or sun, using a singing bowl, holding it under running water or the sea, holding it in the smoke of burning sage or incense or burning it in the earth.
Build a relationship with your pendulum:
Get yourself in a calm state:
Meditate and be in calm state prior to beginning. Take the time to center and grounded yourself. Take a few long slow breathes.
Set your intention:
It is important to set your intention with a statement. Hold your pendulum in your hands and say “I intend on receiving truthful answers that only serve the good of all concerned." You can set your intention any way that resonates with you.
Ask your pendulum questions:
Hold your pendulum by your chosen hand on the end of the chain between your thumb and forefinger. Ensure your arm is stable by resting your elbow on a bench or table. Wait for your pendulum to stop moving or use your other hand to stop the movement.
Define the Directional Swings:
Ask your pendulum to show you what a particular response look like. For example, start off by asking, "What does a NO look like?" and "What does a YES look like?" Posing these questions to your pendulum will help define directional swings, which must happen before advancing to more challenging questions.
Common movements of your pendulum:
Horizontal swing signifies YES, vertical swing signifies NO and circular movement signifies NEUTRAL
Use your pendulum wisely.
Like any spiritual tool, pendulums can be misused.
Avoid using your pendulum when you are feeling emotional because your responses are likely to be inaccurate.
When dowsing with your pendulum you need to come from a position of asking with an open mind or you are likely to affect the answers given.
Know there are times when our spirit guides don't want us to have the answer or it is not the right time. Accept that divine guidance is given at the right time.
Use your pendulum for yourself and not others unless they have given you their permission.
