Pendulum- An ancient tool for dowsing.
Any crystal attached to a string or chain can be used as a pendulum.
Pendulums can be used to locate imbalances in the body in need of healing, identify the flow of energy, or can be used for divination.
There are many methods to dowsing, but most include connecting to your pendulum and asking it questions.
A pendulum is basically a weight hanging from a chain or string in such a way that it can move around freely in all directions.
You hold it in your hands and think of your question. The pendulum then swings in a certain way in response to your question.
Step one: Center yourself.
You can do this by simply breathing with the intention of letting the stress out, or make it more of a ritual by lighting candles, putting on some zen music, diffusing essential oils or incense.
Step two: Connect to the pendulum.
Sit with your pendulum. Find a comfortable place for you to sit and begin to relax as much and you can. Hold the pendulum in your hand. Take a look at it. Respect it.
Step three: Establish a connection and identify your "Yes" and "No."
You need to learn what your body's "yes" and "no" responses are. To establish this quickly, hold the pendulum 6 - 8 inches above the palm of your hand. Begin to ask simple yes/no questions that you know the answers to and see what the responses are.
Step four: Ask your questions.
This is the easy part, but you must keep in mind that the pendulum can only answer simple yes/no questions.
If you ask something that isn't directly a yes or no, your answer won't be clear.
And that's it!
